Very important: Once you have posted your picture put the link to the POST into the Mr. Linky box! This way we can all immediately go and see what you did!

We will leave this Dare up until Saturday, September 20, so you have a whole week to do this!

Dare # 4 - Part 1 "Get Involved"

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!

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!

Dare # 3 - DUYS (Dress Up Your Staff)

Here is Anastasia's last Dare in her own words:

I Dare You All to Dress Up Your Staff. Dress up your humans in the most ridiculous, silly, weird, comical, insane, funny, humiliating, splendid, outrageous outfit you can imagine, post their picture on your blog and put your name and the link to the post in the Mr. Linky box below.”

And please, Dare your
nomss friend and if you don’t have one, make one!

Finally you can get revenge: Let your humans experience what it feels like to be dressed up for public display!!!

As an added incentive I, Karl, decided to give a Value T-shirt of your choice from the vevivi store to the viewer's favorite!
Everybody can vote on their favorite picture next Friday and Saturday (November 9 and 10). One vote per animal. Our picture is not eligible for voting.

I put the Dare up today, on the Day of the Dead, in the hope that Anastasia's sporit might come and dare you herself! Questions? Help? Email us!

P.S. : HERE are the results! And unfortunately by re-posting this we lost the comments from the original post here.... It was the maid's fault!

Dare # 2 - The nomss Friend

I dare you all to make a not-of-my-species-special-friend (nomss friend).

Go out, find someone who is not of your own species and make friends.
Introduce yourself and tell them why you chose them (color of their fur, feathers, scales, skin, layout and/or content of their Blog, their name, whatever it was that grabbed your attention - and no, Daisy I don't think the Sea Monkeys would count....)
Ask if they want to be your nomss friend and post about them on your Blog. Beans can of course play too!
Put the link to that post in the Mr. Linky Box at the end.
We will keep this post up for several days because I realize that this is a somewhat different challenge! It requires real effort. And time. And courage to go and talk to strangers and ask them to be friends. But I think that this is something we all need to do more these days!

You can pick up your IDYA buttons here in the sidebar, they are designed so that you can put your new friend’s picture in it and is meant to be put in your sidebar with a permanent link to their blog. There are also some buttons you can give to your new friends.
We promised: no photoshop! So whoever does not have the software or skills to put their friend’s picture in the button – email us and we do it for you!

I do hope that each and every one of you accepts this challenge so we can make the blogosphere an even better and bigger community and show everybody how we cross borders and have no patience for prejudices, racism and intolerance towards others!

If you don’t know where to start looking: there are a number of links to other animal and human Bloggers at the bottom of our sidebar. There is also the animal internet. Good luck!

And remember: don’t just put your nomss friend’s picture on your Blog but treat them as true friends. Visit often, respect and support them, help them when they need it and most important: learn from how they are different from you and find your common features!
