Scavenger Hunt Winners!

Scavenger HuntWow, I guess my Scavenger Hunt contest was a lot harder than I thought it would be. No one had all the answers right, although several cats had just one error. Winners will receive item(s) from the Siamese Rescue or the Animal Rescue Site. Participants will also receive a little something. Please send your address to dragonheart DOT sphynx AT gmail DOT com to receive your prizes, or, if you do not want to receive a prize, let me know which charity you wish to donate to, and I will make a donation in an amount equivalent to the value of the prize to your chosen charity.

So, here are the winners! Congratulations to everyone!

Winner, most correct answers (drawn from all of those with one incorrect answer): China Cat & Willow
Random draw winner: Samantha & Tigger
Most creative entry: Miss Peach

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to everyone who entered!
