I am a cat called the Brew.

It is my desire to entertain you.

But I really don’t know how to write Haiku.


See how easy it is? If I can write poetry, anyone can. And to celebrate pet pal-ship, Pets Add Life is holdin’ a poetry contest fur kids to write poems about their pets.

When BZTAT was a kid, she used to write poems alot, and her favorite subject was writin’ about her cat Pyewacket. Do you know a child who likes to write? Have them pen a poem and send it to Pets Add Life. Look at what they could win:

  • A “by-line” in a nationally circulated magazine,
  • A $250 gift card for pet products, AND
  • A $1,000 scholarship for your classroom for pet-related education!
  • Six winners, one per grade level will win!
  • Deadline for submissions is January 31, 2012 at 5:00pm EST.

You can read all the deets here. Get writin’, kids!

Daisy the Curly Cat giving the winning *Paw Bump*

It’s never easy to judge a contest, especially when all the cat-testants are yer pals.  And I have such creative and photogenic pals, it is REALLY hard.

My pals really represented fur my *Paw Bump* Blog Challenge, let me meow ya!  They gave some PAWSOME *paw bumps*!!!!!

Out of all the entries, though, I hafta say, Daisy the Curly Cat gave us a *paw bump* that is just really the cat’s meow. She is givin’ a fabulous *paw bump*, all the while balancin’ herself on a table and givin’ us a look that means bizness.

Concats Daisy! You are the Brew’s *Paw Bump* Blog Challenge winner!!! Daisy wins an art print by my human BZTAT for her winning entry.

I would also like to give some  Honorable Mention meow-outs to some other pretty special entries.

Special mention goes to Keiko who got her whole Kitty Trio to pawticipate. And my pals Boris Kitty, RumblePurr and Sparkle the Designer Cat gave some pretty special *paw bumps* too.
