Simba was a victim of vet abuse and malpractice. That is how i came to this forum.

Would you please take a minute to vote for her? If she wins we will get national magazine exposure to tell her horrific story. :pray:

Thank you!

scroll down to party animal pics . change the pull down menu from 8 photos to 16 photos. her photo is entitled "Hey I wanna come" and is submitted by simbasmom. you might have to click on the word next to find it.
Please vote!

Thank you. (if you want to read Simba's story go to the thread "Cat's teeth removed - won't eat"

I just voted. I couldn't vote using IE because the picture wouldn't scroll down to the vote button, but it worked in Firefox.

If you sort the result by "most popular", Simba will appear on the first page (she's in 5th place!) and you won't have to sort through all the other photos.

Also I found if you deleted your cache and cookies, you could vote for her more than once. (I'm using Firefox).

I hate to rain on your parade, but isn't this a contest for party pets? All the other animals have costumes or are at least in party settings. Yours...isn't. Sure, Simba is gorgeous, but doesn't suit the competetion. Even if she does get the popular vote, I think the magazine editors will pick the next pet that actually is dressed up.

This kind of reminds me of the Stephen Colbert thing. There is a prettiest pet competetion that was going completely normal. Then someone entered a pet named Colbert el dos. Someone posted the link on the Stephen Colbert fan site, then that dog shot straight to first place. People voted for the pet based on it's name, not on actually being the prettiest.

But, that's just my two cents.

There are several photos of pets with no costumes or party gear. I'd like to think that the site will consider pets who have the most votes, even though they are not in costume.

Keep voting people, you never know the final decision of the judges. People vote with their eyes, and yes she may not be wearing a costume, she is the most popular. I know many people here have voted several times, but she's at over 1000, so I'm guessing she's got votes from people outside this site as well.

no. were you able to see the "vote" button? you have to click it. i can't vote at work b/c the monitor on the PC is too small. Yes, I am able to see the "Vote" button. I click and the only thing that happens is Simba's photo fades out and is gone. It doesn't seem to like my vote. What happens when the rest of you vote? I would assume you would get some kind of confirmation? A thank you for voting? I get nothing and the vote count does not change. :(

So what. doesn't mean I should not try. IF we win i get to tell my story to a news magazine. THAT is worth the effort!

I am not a pessimist and neither is Simba!
