We picked our winner by random using the online application called Random.Org.
Here are details of how entry & results were calculated:
Part 1:' the IntegersGenerate< insert number of possible winners here> = 1. Each integer should have a value between 1 and 11. 1-11 because we had 11 qualified entries '.
*note* we had a couple entries who we personally contacted as not qualifying due to no blog/homepage or because our button was not grabbed. I contacted both personally to explain; thank you for your understanding that this was a giveaway helping promotion of our adoption fundraiser.

Here is your random number : 7 '
I assigned a number to each entry in order they were received by comment. I want to list the names of each who entered as a thank you. And when you get to entry #7... well, that's our winner.

CONGRATULATIONS to Jans Funny Farm- you have won the ' how to take over teh wurld' bestseller cat book !
I personally thank each & every one of you who showed support and interest in our very first giveaway here at Us4 Cats. The team effort you have shown by placing our HomeTarts button within your own blogs is very appreciated. Our adoption fundraiser is important to us and by what we have seen here, it is important to you all as well. That within itself speaks volumes.Now as for the photo included via top of this post: I just had to post it; it was too perfect a post title/photo combo not to share. This is how our home looks every time after I (the mom) come back from the market. I toss the bags onto the floor for the cats to chase & romp about. They have loved this from day one. Now, how Junior got herself inside the empty water bottle plastic wrapper, without getting stuck mind you, was very impressive to me. We may be biased, but she is a doll!
