Blackberries Fun!


I had a much much better day today. Plus, I finally decided on what I'd do for my second bloggiversary blackberries contest!

Answer this question:

How many pounds of cat litter did we buy in 2006?
  • Hint 1: This was for all four of us
  • Hint 2: We have only one cat box
  • Hint 3: We use Swheat Scoop (lighter than clay)

Here are the rules:
  1. You have to be a cat.
  2. To be eligible, you have to have a blog or a Catster page, or you must have left a comment on my blog prior to this.
  3. If you have a giant cat family, each cat can enter once, separately. For example, if we could play, we could have four separate entries, one for me, one for Eddie, one for Olivia and one for Caroline.
  4. Leave your answer in a comment to this post.
  5. Entries will be accepted until 6:00 p.m. Mountain Time on Sunday, January 7, 2007.
Here are the prizes:
  • The winning entrant with the exact or closest answer will have a choice of a $25 gift card to Petco or Petsmart, $25 cash to the person or animal charity of your choice, or a $25 sponsorship at Best Friends (and you get to choose the cat you want to sponsor!). Plus, some special surprise.
  • If there are two or more identical winning entries, one winner will be picked at random.
  • But wait, there's more! The runner up entrant will receive some fun things, too!
Winners will be announced on Sunday evening. Have fun and good luck!


  1. My guess is 300 pounds (I'm probably so far off it's laughable)!

  2. I don't know if I ever left a comment. The Lady says that you even kept track of how much kitty litter you bought is a frightening thought. My guess (if I am eligible) is 192 pounds.

  3. Missy guesses 260.
    Monte guesses 275.
    Munchkin guesses 250.
    This is fun.

  4. Jesse sayz 290 pounds

    Dazey sayz 360 pounds

    Conner Cloud says 490 pounds

  5. Ghost said 500 pounds

    Mia said 425 pounds

  6. Finny sez 410 pounds

    Buddy sez 395 pounds

    Congrats on yore 2nd annifursry!!

    Finny & Buddy

  7. Grr: 420 lbs.
    Midnight: 350 lbs.
    Cocoa: 390 lbs.

    happy blackberries!

  8. Sophia - 440
    Fiona - 325
    Orlando - a Squillion

  9. I don't think I have commented on your blog before, but if I am allowed to enter, I guess 1300 pounds. That's even more than I weigh!

  10. Badness says 260 but Tucker says 320 lbs.

    That is alot of scooping.

  11. Sammy says 800 pounds and Miles says 700 pounds.

    What a fun contest. But we do werry about your woman keeping track of how much litter you use.

  12. Only one box for 4 cats??? You guys share nicely.
    Scout guesses: 188 pounds
    Scooby guesses: 246 pounds
    Shaggy says: 316

  13. HMMMMMMMMMMMMM. I agree with SS&S, that you all share the same box. This is hard, as I don't know this stuff how well it works and all. So this is a true guess. 250 pounds.

  14. hi william, we donts know if we has efer commented befur but we visits some. yuki guesses 1404lbs and kimiko guesses 1053lbs.

  15. Hum...What a fun contest. A couple of years ago you put the bite on a big big bag of the litter stuff and spilled it all over a closet, but I don't know if you used up any litter that way this year so...I'm guessing 240 pounds. Tommy is guessing 500lbs.

  16. Patches says 768
    Mittens says 668
    Precious says 568
    Mistrie says 468

  17. hmm we haf nefurr heard of this type befurr but we fink it must way liter than owrs, so we will haf to haf a wild guess.
    Eric 900lbs.
    Flynn 920lbs.
    But we fink we are prolly way ofurr the top.

  18. WOW! We can't figure out if 900 pounds of litter a year is embarassing or not. Thats a lot of poop.

  19. Cheysuli 350 lbs
    Gemini 150 lbs
    Georgia Why on earth would you keep track of such a thing?

  20. Hmmm ... let's see. We use 80 lbs of Tidy Cat litter per week which translates into 416 lbs per year. But, of course, that's spread out between five litter boxes. Since you use Swheat Scoop,

    Dino guesses 350 lbs

    Egypt guesses 375 lbs (extra needed for kickout)

    Maxie guesses 300 lbs (30% kicked out of box)

    Tuxie guesses 275 lbs

    Midnight guesses 325 lbs (but you need more litter boxes)

  21. I love contests! My guess is 323 lbs. Can't wait to find out what the answer is.

  22. Eleventy million pounds!

    Puffalump guess 173 lbs.

  23. We have absolutely no idea, but that's not going to stop us from entering.

    Jake: 140 pounds.

    Bathsheba: 185 lbs.

  24. After many careful and complicated calculations, we come up with 486 pounds. And Mom really did calculations. She figured out how much litter we use in a year, multiplied it by 2, then divided by 1.5 based on the estimated weight difference between our litter and yours.

    So our guess: 486


Wowee meowee.
