I Dare You All...

... to come up with a Dare of your own!

One year ago at this day Anastasia went to the bridge. And instead of mourning her death today we decided to celebrate her life by holding another Dare, a tradition at The Cat Realm that she invented with her pink wig challenge.


We call this fourth Dare the "
Get Involved Dare" because we want each and everyone of you to come up with a Dare of your own. You can Dare us to do anything - no violence of course! And try to keep it kitten friendly...
A panel of judges will vote on the best Dare and the winner will be the next Dare for everybody to do!

The panel of judges was chosen from among cats and dogs who all have done outstanding efforts to bring us all together - get us involved - as a community. The list of those individuals is long but our maid insisted on keeping the number of judges small so we did have to make a selection...

I will only list one of the sometimes many of the efforts by those we chose:

Pablo for his AWESOME Footy Finals Fever competition
Nelson LaPurr for giving us MEOW LIKE A PIRATE day
Skeezix for his Halloween contest

Opus for the Mafia Movie Night

Sassy for CCSI

Gretchen for giving us Mike

Lenny for the 2008 Paw-Limpics

Monty Q. for his Do The Q! contest originally was also on this panel. As you all probably know his family lost their sweet baby Violette, so they need him for support. Our purrs and thoughts are with him and his family during this time of incredible grieve and sadness.

Every animal and human can participate, one entry per animal/human.
You have to have an active blog to participate but if you share a blog with others each one can enter.

Please try and explain your Dare in ONE sentence!!!

Email it to us at
idareyouall at gmail dot com

Enter your name in the subject line and leave your blog address with your Dare!

Deadline will be August 31, 9 pm Pacific Time, that is midnight EST.

By entering your Dare you give permission to The Cat Realm to use it in any way we see fit as long as we give you the proper credit for it.

Of course we can change these rules at any time, thank you Skeezix, hahahahahahahaha!


Please leave your name and blog address in the Linky box underneath so we know who participates!
Keep your Dare a secret, we don't want to spoil the fun!


Now get creative, you can check out our first three Dares ( #1, #2, #3 ) for inspiration and then come up with something outrageously new, funny, simple, weird, thoughtful, alien, plain, YOU name it!
Have fun!

We will make the rounds and challenge you all personally but it might take us some days to get around to everybody. And sorry Yao-Lin - we will do this alphabetically ...
If you don't find yourself on our blogroll but would like to be on there - let us know!

APPENDIX:
After we put on and do the winning Dare we will then also post ALL the other entries and dare you to do as many of them as you possibly can!

What a wonderful way to remember Anastasia! We know that she is smiling down upon us all today.

Wish we could come up with a dare, but since we are the judges we will just wait to see what comes....

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Dearest Karl! I am so sorry that I am an airhead and messed up my DARE for you by posting it. Thank you for fixing it and letting me play along. You are clear in your post but I am sleep deprived because of the Olympics and that is my case....I should be boycotting the Olympics because of Tibet and thought long and hard about that....We will not watch the opening and closing ceremonies to honor the oppressed...only watching our teams compete!
Mit viel Liebe...deine Miss Peach

Brownie said...

I had my dare idea and e-mail it to you, I'm glad I starts with B!
And... I iz not in yerz blogroll :(
pleez add me :)

Ruis said...

That year went so quick..., very much happened since then! I know for sure that Anastasia hasn't missed a thing of it -- from the day we met, our engagement and of course she was sitting in the front row with our brothers and sisters at our wedding!!

Karl, sweetheart, you told me so much of Anastasia that I feel like I have known her, and because of that I would not be surprised if the idea of this dare comes from your sister and is whispered into your ears from the Bridge.

I didn't put my name in the Linky's yet, but the upcoming days there will be a lot of brainstorming sessions with the others. :)

Love & nosekisses,
Your Ruis

The Devil Dog said...

We will have to do a lot of thinking, for this dare. We would like to be on your blog roll, please.

Sassy Kat said...

Wonderful dare and idea! I am so excited to be a judge in this contest I can hardly wait to see what comes in.
Do I put my name on your link as a judge????
Let the fun begin!!!

Pablo said...

Brilliant. A triumph. I'll have to think long and hard to come up with a dare that's worthy of the memory of the Queen of Dares, Anastasia. Again, I'm honoured to be among the judges. Thanks!

Mr. Chen and Ollie said...

Oh boy!! This is very exciting! We have many ideas - it will be hard to narrow it down but we will try. Can't wait to see which one wins. We are sorry we missed the one year anniversary of Ana's going to the Bridge. We can't believe it has been so long - we feel like it was just yesterday.
Purrs,
