Cat Contest Pendant Giveaway

Columbo on the Columbo mat.
Ernie

I finally made a cat...well two cats.  One is my signature shape and looks a bit like a Cat-Owl!  The other is the silhouette of a substantial feline.  Our Columbus/Columbo who passed this year was a "wide bodied" cat.  Both styles of cat I designed could be him.  Recently my Daughter and Grandson adopted Ernie...a Maine Coon like Columbo...but a gray and white tuxedo.

The pendant faces were stamped out with alphabet stamps to make the eyes, nose and whiskers.  They will be much better than pictured.  I tried a myriad of "v"s for the nose.  Funny, they look a bit like beaks!  These are just the prototypes.  I'll have them in sterling, copper, vermeil, and solid gold.  I am having my first complex die made that will have the faces stamped in, and some other nuances.  But before I go to the huge expense of having the die made, I would like your help.  This is where the contest comes in.

Win a Cat Pendant !!!!!!!

1. Be a follower of this blog (you will need to sign in and have a user name or Gmail address.)
2. You must leave a comment as to which cat you like best: A or B, and why.  Only one entry.
3. Contest starts 9am, Tuesday October 26th ends Midnight Mountain Time Sunday, October 31st.
4. We will use a computer generated "picker".  You will be contacted via email, and I will post  the winner on this blog.

Left is CAT  A          Right is CAT B

Left is CAT A                  Right is CAT B

Good luck.  Thanks for helping me decide which cat shape to make. May the best kitty win!

Both Cat A, I made one for myself and my daughter. Shhh...don't tell her.

Each day is a gift...open now.

  1. Hey Suz... I really like Cat B because of its side-sitting position, with the tail wrapped around. It's a great shape! I think kitties look fairly regal when they sit this way. BTW, Ernie is so beautiful, as was Columbo. Maine Coon's are fabulous kitties.

  9. Cat A! It is fatter and has a bigger head :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. So hard to choose because I love all cats! Um ... ok. I'll choose Cat A because I like that winsome "Who me?" expression.

    P.S. Columbo's twin sister allows us to live in her house. ^*!*^

  11. I think Cat A is going to sell the best. How about a cat with a little more to hide? Guess happy cats sell well though. What about CatB with Cat A's head? Are slanted eyes difficult to cut out? Love as always.

  12. I like cat A because is face is more expressive and cute

    I preffer cat B as he looks like my husbands kitty who passed away this spring, he was a wonderful siamese, the best cat ever to be honest - he was so lean and sat tall and proud. Like that.

  19. following you as jhb. It's hard to pick one cat, that's like choosing one real cat over another! I would say Cat B is more like me, cuz he is sorta smaller, fuller, more asymetrical than the other! (love the bunnies too)

  47. Both are cute but cat A has a more unique shape. I see lots of cat B shapes but have not seen cat A's shape. I think you should go with A.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Cat B reminds me of my own rescued cat Ernie. Ernie is a big fatty but looks so elegant sitting so tall with his tail wrapped around. Also, we rescued a Maine Coon a few nights ago and were able to return him to his owner!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I prefer cat B , It's cute and the sitting position make it looks like a fat furry cat <3
    I have a female cat and maybe she will look cuter and prettier when she use the A one :)

  70. i love Cat A better. the rounder shape appeals to me more. it might stem from my crazy OCD and my need for symmetry (ha!). i would love to win it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Suz! I like cat B because it is "less" symmetrical..I'm voting for him.
    ginny@ginnyhuber.com

    ReplyDelete
  72. Ok, Ok, there's something about "A" that is just so darn cute!! Maybe it's because the eyes are a wee bit bigger than "B's" or maybe it's the round-ness and a kind of "nuance of a cat"....or maybe it's because, for some darn reason it reminds me of the kitty we just adopted from rescue....named Shanti, the little Peace kitty. Either which way....I'm going for...
    "A"!
    Love ya Suz...YOU ROCK!

    I like Cat B better, the silhouette draws my attention more than the other one, which, albeit cute, reminds me more of snowmen and the like. Cat B is definitely more 'feline' to me! ^^
