Gracey is a Winner
Caring for Cats, Big and Small
Gracey, the #RedCarpetCat of The Tiniest Tiger, has taken Hollywood by storm. She's popular beyond words as she is now a two-time participant in the Secret Room events, celebrating the Oscars and Emmy Awards. 

What's not to love about caring for all the animals? Last night in between star-gazing and playing TV Animal Trivia, we learned a bit about @TheTiniestTiger's mom and her efforts to save animals. It was a heartwarming story filled with travel, fun photos and short Tweets about her conservation experiences. I hope you were there to enjoy this.

Our #RedCarpetCat Twitter Party was a great success last night, largely due in part to a terrific audience. Thanks to all of you who joined us for this rip-roaring extravaganza. With well over 400 unique participants, we had almost 6000 Tweets! That's not all. We've just got to share this exciting news: #RedCarpetCat was a Twitter trending topic for the entire party! You guys rock!

We had a ton of fun sharing trivia, winning thousands in prizes, and watching the parade of stars that have visited Gracey in the Secret Room. What was your favorite part of the party? I'm still struggling to answer that question myself.

Now I want to share all the winners' names with you. The pre-party prizes did not require attendance, so these folks could experience a big surprise either here or in their Twitter DMs. Feel free to comment with your congratulations or offer them on Twitter. This is a grand list:

  12. Our Grand Prize went to @Seattlesown and truly was awesome. This winner will receive The Tiniest Tiger Bucket Tote with all the Gracey accessories and a Gracey Shaker for the kitty of the house.
I'm feeling a bit like Santa Claus today and could use a good long nap. Tanner and Oliver are definitely keen to join me.  I'm guessing that my compadre over at is feeling the same way. Our partnership in Event Barkers has been an enjoyable new challenge, albeit a great deal of work!

Thanks again to @TheTiniestTiger for sponsoring this event. My Event Barkers partner, and I enjoyed creating and producing this event immensely. And more thank yous to Gracey's major sponsors: @ASPCA, @BestCatLitter, @BissellClean, @HillsPet, and @Iams. If you're a winner, you may want to pop out a note to each, thanking them for the great prizes.

The Fido's Freebie Friday weekly giveaway offering will open at 4 PM as scheduled. Hope to see you there. 

Event Barkers is working with The Tiniest Tiger to produce the #RedCarpetCat Twitter Party.
