Competition (4): tension mounts

This site has now moved to Salut!

Just one day and a bit to go, as I am reminded by the arrival of a brand new copy, albeit slightly battered in the post, of one of the prizes.

You still have between now and teatime today - 6pm French time - to e-mail the name of the ungovernable French cat, and/or a copy of the Salut! home page capturing the moment we passed 50,000 hits last week, to colinrandall2001@yahoo.fr

No disadvantage applies to anyone who is late in supplying the right answer. You could even be last and win.

If you haven't been paying attention, and wish to enter, a simple search of Salut! or a less simple one of my old Telegraph blog (since it is hidden away in the Telegraph site's sinbin) should lead to the cat's identity.

As for the picture, it is election time in France and she may or may not be making a political statement with her choice of colour, or making the natural response to much of the debate in a somewhat drab campaign.

An announcement as to prize winners will appear here as soon after that time as possible and in any event by tomorrow morning.

Isn't this exciting! Can't wait - it's more tense than the Euromillion!

Yeah, you can see how nerve-wracked the cat is.

She's enjoying her last few days in le Lavendou, before she is shipped off to her new home - as she is the prize!

I'm sure she and Angus will get on famously.

No, I haven't won the prize - I answered the question days after it was published! And I have never in my life won a competition!

Will she like being sent chronopost? Maybe she will catch the horse's fleas.

I don't think timing's an issue. Isn't Colin going to put all the correct answers in his chapeau. The laws of probability say that if you've never won a competition, this could be the one.

Fortunately for all, and the cat, we live above the 'flea line' so don't suffer from all those nasty little things that you wot down in the valley are infested with!

Hamsters and cats don't get on - have you ever thought of seeing someone about this Bill? You seem to have hamsteritis if you don't mind me mentioning it. It's not fatal, but it can go on for a long, long, long, long time.
