The Winners are.....

Well our group of judges obviously had quite the sense of humor as the winner is unanimous as Baby Mao pooing in the daffodils!  They felt his natural attention to the needs of Spring just announced such a feeling of the winter moving into the growth of Spring.  Baby Mao wins the Millie Bed!  He will probably never see it however as I have a sneaking suspicion that Yao-lin may claim it as his own winnings.  

For our second place winner the judges were a little more divided but felt that the sweetness and simplicity of Doorydoo's entry was just too lovely not to recognize.  The sunbeam and the lovely poem made the judges feel the sun on her furs.  Doorydoo wins a handmade purr pad from Siamese Rescue which she can hopefully enjoy many future Spring sunbeams upon. 
And third place the judges took a lot of consideration into the weather this year.  One of our judges lives in the far north of Maine and all of them are just sick and tired of winter.  They want bright happy things just like Derby's entry provided.  Derby wins a prize pack of goodies from Siamese Rescue!

Meowmy decided she wanted to give an award to one of her favorite entries so we award a special runner up place to MoMo since her entry was just so philosophical, beautiful, and expressive.  (MoMo if you contact Meowmy she wants to get you a little something special).

Queen Snickers chose the winners for her special handmade nip toys in honor of her two sons born in the Spring.  The ginger winner is Jimmy Joe
and the tuxie winner is Samantha.  

Of course the judges felt that every entry was wonderful and had a really really hard time choosing the top 3.  They really wanted to award special awards to the rest of the Top 11.

Most viewer votes (and good choice in food) Daisy!
Best use of lyrics and photography together is Lucy from Artsy Catsy!
Most handsome and obviously selfless entry would be Yao-lin.
Most energetic entry is Tripper.
Most creative way to interpret the coming of Spring- Mao.
Most likely to get the best Easter Basket (besides Fiona and Lando who got SERIOUS awws from the juges) is Skeezix.
Best use of Song andSunbeam is Rocky from Artsy-Catsy.  

Again thank you to ALL of the entries, voters, supporters, and just those who enjoyed this fun with us.  Spring is so much closer now so hopefully we can all continue to enjoy the joy of the season.  And thanks to Sammy, Miles, and Bill for being our inspiration for the contest.  
We're totally going to work on some badges for everyone but we didn't want to keep anyone in more suspense.  Will the top three please e-mail us simplysiameseATgmailDOTcom with your info so we can send you your prizes directly from Siamese Rescue?

Big congratulations to all the winners and also to all the organizers of this wonderful cause!! I'm glad I wasn't a judgecat or I would still be hissing & growling & scratching my head trying to decide between all these fantastic entries. Lucy and I are very honored to be mentioned in this fine company!

Congratulations to all the winners! It was a really fun contest, and it made me feel happy and spring-y to see all the wonderful entries. I have to agree, Baby Mao poo-ing in the spring flowers was classic!

I am so not speaking to the judges.
