20Twelbity Cheezland Calendar

*LCB runs in with numbers and pictures of kittehs stuck all over her*

O hai, guise! It’s time to start preparing the 20Twelbity Cheezland Calendar. The 20Eelbenty Calendar project that featured pics of our pets raised enough money to sponsor 6 feet of perimeter fencing at the Big Cats Rescue sanctuary in Florida. That’s $600! This year’s beneficiary will be  Cat Action Trust Cork, one of the organizations Cheezpeep Muriel Lumb works with.

By popular insistence, we will once again be featuring your pet pics in 20Twelbity, in these 12 categories:

  • DO NOT WANT (cone of shame, shaved, wet, etc.)
  • Kitteh Lurve (cuddly, snuggly kittehs)
  • Then/Now (aka Kitz II Catz, baby and adult pix of same cat)
  • Kittehs with Toys (playing with or cuddling with)
  • Non-Kitteh Pets
  • Naptime
  • Kittehs with Non-Kittehs
  • I/You Has a Flavor (Kittehs washing themselves or others)
  • Drama Kittehs (Kittehs in dramatic poses or with striking facial expressions)
  • Snorgle Snorkel Bait (Kittehs showing their bellies)
  • Toepads, Pinky and Not-So-Pinky
  • Heart Pets (Dearly departed kittehs and other pets)

How Can I Halp?
The biggest help everyone can provide is to respect and abide by the following ground rules.

  1. DO NOT PUT YOUR PET IN ANY DANGER TO TAKE A PICTURE.
  2. NO MORE THAN 4 pictures per Cheezpeep, PLEASE. We are aware that many of you have way more than one pet, past and present, but space on each page is very limited. Every pet of every Cheezpeep simply will not fit every year. Choose wisely.
  3. Please submit only one picture per category. (Exception: the Then/Now category requires you to submit 2 pictures that we will edit together. Be aware that those 2 pictures WILL count as 2 of your 4 allotted pics.) Again, choose wisely.
  4. PLEASE do not flout Rules 2 and 3 by submitting more than your quota and asking us to choose for you. PRETTY PLEASE. With sugar on it. Too many peeps tried that last year and pictures got overlooked because of it. *whimpers*
  5. PLEASE include your ICHC screen name and your pet’s name with your submission. A few peeps’ pics were left out last year because of confusion caused by missing or incomplete information.
  6. NO COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL. The pictures must be your own. Examples: If you or a friend or family member took a picture of your pet, that’s ok to submit. If you snagged a random picture from the internet because it made you lol, that’s not ok to submit.
  7. Submit pictures of only your own pets, please. Sorry, but there is not enough space for your extended family’s pets and/or your neighbors’ pets. (Exception: If you don’t have a pet of your own, you can use a family pet pic.)
  8. No LOLS or captioned pictures, please. The final position/sizing of your picture might be too small for any text to be legible. If space permits, we will add a label with your pet’s name on it. We reserve the right to crop pictures to fit and/or to better highlight the pet.
  9. Blurry pic? DO NOT WANT. These will be printed on paper, so use as clear a picture as you can. Resolution should be no less than 150 dpi. If you don’t know what this means or how to check, don’t worry. We’ll figure something out. If you took it with a digital camera it is probably ok. Ditto if it’s scanned.

Ok, Ok. How Can I Submit?
E-mail your submissions, together or separately, to lolcatburglar at gmail dot com NO LATER THAN Sunday November 6 at 9pm Cheezland Time (Pacific). These can be pictures attached to the e-mail or links to pictures on your Facebook page or elsewhere (make sure permissions are set to public or that we otherwise would have access). If submitting more than one pic at a time, be sure to clarify what information goes with what picture. Remember to include:

  • Your screen name
  • The name(s) of the pet(s)
  • The category that you are submitting each pic for

If you have problems e-mailing, or only have a print version of your picture(s) and no way to digitize, let LCB know and we’ll work something out, snailmailwise.

The Fine Print (In a Large Font)
By submitting any picture, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by the above rules, and that the picture(s) are not copyrighted material and are not owned by someone else. You also acknowledge that all proceeds from sale of any item including your picture will go to a charitable organization and that you will receive no monetary compensation for participating. But you will get tons of good karma. *nods*

We do also sometimes feature sponsored posts. These will always be called out in the post title.

CheezFrenzForever

*LCB runs in all excited-like*

O hai guise! The lovely peeps over at ICHC has done something really extra super wonderful for us. They made a page where we can send lols and videos and stuff to honor the Cheezpeeps we have lost. *marvels*

It’s called CheezFrenzForever (http://memorial.cheezburger.com). Currently there is the video I made for KimKiwi and a new video I just did in honor of Ambercat, whose birthday is today (October 13).

You can add your own lols or YouTube videos or whatever by e-mailing a link to jen@cheezburger.com. It would be helpful to include the screenname of the Cheezpeep you are honoring. Yay!

I’ll add a link to this over on the right so it’s easy to find when you want to visit with our dearly departed peeps.

DC Cheezmeets in May

DC Cheezmeet Cheezpeeps

L-R: Joe, LCB, Mara, Rae, Jack Deth

O hai, guise. In the midst of all the sad news from our friends in Cheezwhirled, it is important to remember the spirit of fun that brought us all together in the first place.

To that end, there was a mini-Cheezmeet on Wednesday May 11 at the Stray Cat Cafe, the official un-official Cheezmeet HQ in the Washington DC area. Rae (aka bethwilson) from Omaha was visiting DC with her spousal unit Joe and daughter Mara. They, along with Jack Deth and me (LCB) had a fun time getting acquainted, sharing gifts, admiring Rae’s cheezburger hat, and of course, nomming nummy food. Two — count ’em! — two videos are below.

There will be another DC cheezmeet next week, most likely on Sunday May 22 around noon or 1pm. Special guest will be Moe from India! If you are in the area and think you can make it over to join in the fun, plz to e-mail me at lolcatburglar at gmail dot com (but you do not have permission to add my address to your distribution list for jokes and other stuff. kthxdonotwant)
