. . . and celebrate da NBA Playoffs! Da Jump & Shout Contest will award prizes AND raise monies fer da Cat Friends Helping Friends Organization. Da contest is actually a drawing, so every cat who participates gits entered in da drawing. Contest begins Tuesday, May 20, 2008, 9:00am (PST), and closes Saturday, May 31, 2008, midnight (PST). Open to all animal species (except peoples).

Here's how da fundraiser part werks:
Fer every participant, we will donate .50 cents to da Cat Friends Helping Friends Organization.

Here's how da contest werks:
- There are 2 catagories to participate in - 1) Jump, or 2) Shout
- Only 2 participants per house allowed. If you are only a one-cat household, then you can participate in both categories (or only one if you like). Another Example: If there are 6 cats in yer house, you will only be allowed 2 participants per household. You can either have 1 participant per category, or both be in da same category. *Both participants do NOT each git 2 entries)
- You ONLY git to use photos that are NOT fussed wif. No Photoshop, no artsy stuff, no special effects. JUST PLAIN FUN PHOTOS. 
- You must have a blog or website to participate, and be willing to share yer mailing info should you choose a prize that needs mailing.
- There will be one drawing from each category. Our blurpy sisser will draw da names.
- Names drawn will be announced HERE on Monday, June 2, 2008, 9:00am (PST).

How to enter:
- Post yer photo(s) on YOUR blog or website. Be sure to identify who is in da photo.
- Leave a comment (including a link to your site) on THIS blog to let us know that your photo is posted on YOUR site.
- We will list all participant's links in our sidebar so you can visit each other's sites to see all da fun photos.

Here are some examples of photos:
This (below) is whut jumping looks like (duhr). If 2 cats from yer house participate, you could both choose to participate in da same category - but then that's all.

Here (below) is an example of shouting. Now, notice that there are 2 cats in da photo . . . well, you will need to identify who is participating. Fer example, in this photo, Sabi is participating in da Shout category.
