Meezer Mancat Monday Contest Results

IMG_2950smAs you know, last week I ran a little contest to see who would be in the next book that Mom is writing. In her second book, Taken by the Sound she needed a name for a dog and she immediately decided upon Grete. So even though the editor tried to change the spelling to Greta, the woman said NO! So Grete makes a guest appearance and gives our hero a clue to the mystery!

So we thought we would put a cat friend in the next book. We ran a contest last week. We gave each comment a number and ran three random comment picks. As we were testing which one we liked, we figured then we’d do it once more to break the tie of who won, right? Well on EVERY SINGLE pick we got da tabbies o trout town! They wanted her to use the name Eric the Orange.  So in our third book, Eric may be a cat who gives a clue or maybe he just makes a comment to one of the other characters (or about them). It was apparently meant that Eric was the cat chosen for the book as you can see.

Now clearly I have some work to do on washing my paw. It’s good of Chey to give me a place to set it while I do that.


  1. That is so cool! Of course my Grete woofie is still smiling and wagging about being a superstar. How awesome one of our kitty friends will get to be in a book too!





  2. WooHoo!! Concats to the winners 🙂
    They are great choices .
    How nice,too, that Chey is helping you Ichiro 😉

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger,JJ and Julie

  3. Paws up to the Da Tabbies o Trout Town!

  4. I think I missed this competition last week. It was probably when we had no innernets after the phone line blew up. I think Eric the Orange is a very good name. Concats to the Tabbies O Trout Towne.
    Concats to Grete too for having her name chosen.

  5. What a cool win for the Tabbies o Trout Town! Eric the Orange is going to be famous! (Or is that infamous?)

  6. da tabbies o trout towne says:

  7. wow, concatulations to the winners!

  8. Congrats to the Trout Tabbies! And how cool the Grete will make an appearance in the book too!

  9. I think that we will probably just go with Eric the Orange–but he might have a friend name Flynn, how is that?

  10. Thank you to the Tabbies O Trout Towne for suggesting Eric the Orange in honour of our beloved boy, and thanks for suggesting Flynn’s name too.

  11. YAY for the Da Tabbies o Trout Town!

  12. I am so happy and that is just the best tribute to our dear friend Angel Eric.
