In like a lion... THE TABBY CATT's very first contest!

In like a lion, out like a lamb.

I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here, the arrival of March means cold weather is on its way out and springtime is taking hold. All week I've been hearing mourning doves (what a soothing sound they make) in the morning, something terribly lacking during the winter.

In celebration of spring being *this close* THE TABBY CATT is hosting its very first contest.

Good luck! I will be in Philadelphia next week so be on the lookout for pictures.  Philly is about to get a foot of snow, so I'll be in a Winter Wonderland on March 1st, despite the warmer weather here!

I'm mostly excited about being able to get outdoors again and do some hiking. I used to go hiking a good bit in the winter, but it's been unusually cold down here in the South this year.

It sure has, Steven!

I am excited to go fly kites! I haven't done it in a year or two, but it is one of my favorite spring activities. All I need is a cheap grocery store kite, a windy day, and a park free from power lines. Such fun!

And sorry that blogger ate my other comment. Thanks for informing me, though! I'd hate to miss the giveaway. :)

Very cool! I'm looking forward to rolling my windows down in the car. I love doing that, driving home fast from work. Nothing better. :)

Yay! I love contests.

I am most looking forward to....hmmm. That is tough! There are SO many things I am looking forward to this spring. I guess I am very most looking forward to seeing my back yard again and being able to eat out on the deck. Both have been covered by the same 2 feet of snow (4 on the deck cause it gets NO sun in the winter) for 3 months. *sigh*

I am a follower (that makes it sound like I am in a cult or something :) ) and I Tweeted and Facebooked. Fun times!
