Contest Winners

You Tell Us Contest winners.

Congratulations! Here are the contest winners for the "You Tell Us What Squaredy Cats To Design Next" contest. These Squaredy Cats fans were picked from fans who posted on the Claires Facebook Page about Squaredy Cats.
We picked 4 winners randomly, and one from our favorite post. Our favorite post was:
"What are squaredy cats? Let me answer that!! :) They are absolutely adorable square-shaped cats with motivating mottos for each image and they provide inspirational kittie pics almost daily. I love Squaredy Cats. :)"

Thank you to everyone who posted. We really appreciate your support.

We need the winners to post a description of the cat they want us to make along with a caption that starts with, "not squared of…" or "not squared to…"

We'll be posting the winners' cats next week on the Facebook page.

Joisy Kitty

We hope you enjoyed our New Jersey Squaredy Cat. It's tough to make a cat that "represents" an entire state without coming across as playing up to a stereotype. We certainly know not all cats from New Jersey wear red baseball caps, leaving the hang tag on. For those who questioned it, the cards are for Atlantic City. This cat actually turned out to be a lot of fun. Keep voting on our Facebook page to see the next of the 50 States Squaredy Cats.

We're still doing a Squaredy Cat for every state :)

A new state cat will be posted tonight on the Facebook page. For everyone that's wondering we're still doing 50 cats for 50 states. We're going to take some breaks, though. This is a BIG project. If we skip a day or two to post a random cat don't worry. All the states will come in. Keep voting, and get your friends to go to the page, and vote!
Wisconsin was our 11th state to be voted into the album. Who's next?

Here's a bonus from our fan, Kaleigh. She drew this for us :)
Thanks, Kaleigh! We LOVE it!

Rain, rain go awa…wait where are you, rain?

Squaredy Cats sing in the rain.

So, we posted this "April Showers" cat in early April to the Facebook page one day when it was drizzling…slightly. Then we thought we'd wait for the big downpour to post it to the blog. The "problem" is no more rain is forecast for the rest of this month where we live. We're tempted to make a frowny face :( but no rain make us happy :) but rain is good for flowers, and we like flowers :) but there was very little rain :(
We got so much rain in March, maybe the saying should go, "March showers bring April flowers."

Thanks to Earth Day fans

Squaredy Cats celebrate Earth Day EVERY day!

Yesterday was Earth Day, and we ran a contest this week leading up to Earth Day. We yielded four lucky winners who got their names on an Earth Day Squaredy Cat. Congratulations to Alana, Abby, Gabby and Lauren. You can find your personalized Squaredy Cat at this link. Looks like a couple of you already started using your pic as your profile pic on Facebook.
Keep caring about the environment, and thank you for your support.

Earth Day is every day

Tonight around 9PM Eastern time we will post the 3rd EARTH DAY cat on the Facebook Page. The first fan to post the words, "SQUAREDY CATS FOR EARTH DAY!" in tonight's post will get their name on an Earth Day Squaredy Cat. We'll post all three winners shortly after we determine the third.

Happy Earth Day!

Squaredy Cats care about the environment.

We'd like to take a moment to remind all our fans that every day is Earth Day. Do your part to keep our environment beautiful and livable.

Celebrate Earth Day with Squaredy Cats

Don't be squared to love our Earth.

Rethink, reuse, recycle. Get a Squaredy Cats SIGG water bottle today.

Washington - the state :P

Washington is the newest state cat to be posted to the blog, and as Washingtonians will tell you - Washington is a state! So many cats get Washington state confused with Washington DC where the capitol is. Hello to all the Squaredy Cats fans in Washington!
And remember: An apple a day keeps the doctor away ;)

PS Happy Earth Day!

Hello to fans in the motherland

It's the kittish invasion!

We continue our Nations of the World series with the United Kingdom. If you'd like to see a Squaredy Cat that represents your country go to the Facebook page, and vote on our wall.
We have fans in 20 countries! Keep sending our page to your friends :)

USqArdey aCts

Hats off to everyone in the USA!

We started our Nations of the World series when we were just starting our 50 Cats for 50 States series. So many people made requests for something other than states. Since there are so many Canadian fans, we naturally did Canada first. We'll be uploading more nations of the world sporadically, so keep watching for your country or go to the Facebook page, and vote on our wall. According to our stats we have at least one fan in more than a dozen countries!
Be proud to love your country. And today, and every day, be proud to love the USA!

Loving Kittyhawk

First in Flight.

As we continue our 50 Cats for 50 States project, we bring you North Carolina - First in flight. We don't know which of the Wright brothers this kitty is. Heck, we are pretty sure neither of them had a flight helmet or goggles either. The scarf is really more of a fashion statement ;)
Welcome, and hello to all our fans in North Carolina.

Hello to our neighbors to the North.

Hello to Canadian Squaredy Cats fans :)

Since we started posting Squaredy Cats for the 50 states we were suddenly hit with requests to do other nations as well. We loved the idea so much we immediately designed a cat for the most requested nation, Canada. Here it is on our blog…before we even get to say we got so many requests we'll likely do a cat for each of the Canadian provinces and territories. Give us some time, though.
Fans are welcome to go to our Facebook page, and leave a message on our wall. Tell us what country you are from, and we'll make yours!

Rock and roll over, so I can rub your belly

Ohio Squaredy Cat is rock and roll.

As we continue our 50 cats for 50 states, we move on to Ohio where the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is. We thought we'd have trouble designing this one, but it seems like we like it so much we're thinking we can do a whole rock series later. Notice the shape of the guitar.
Hello, and welcome to all the Squaredy Cats fans from rockin' Ohio!

Catch a Squaredy Cat - you'll be sitting on top of the world!

Surf's up, Squaredy Cats fans!

Check out the cool shades! California came in second place in the voting for the 50 States Squaredy Cats. Are all of the fans beach bums? Nope! We started getting voted from almost every state, and they are pouring in! Post a vote for your state on our Facebook wall, but first check the album to see if your state is already there.
Our California Squaredy Cat was based on a cat we designed that hasn't been seen anywhere yet. It's one that will most likely be made for our second series of plush. We'll let you know more about that when we can!

Make waves, and suggest our page to all your friends! We appreciate your help in getting the word out that Squaredy Cats are here to stay!

Enjoy a Florida Squaredy Cat.

Cheers to Squaredy Cats fans.

When life gives you lemons — make lemonade. But what do you do when life gives you lemonade??? Say, "Thanks," of course! And drink it in along with sitting in on a Florida Sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Wear sun screen and comfortable shoes ;)
We started doing a Squaredy Cat for each state of our great union, and Florida won the first vote! We did New York first because that's where we're based, but it seems most of our fans reside in the sunshine state! Keep checking the Squaredy Cats Facebook Page, try looking through the photo albums, or the "What State are you in" album. Check for your state. If it's not there, post a vote to our wall telling us what state you want us to do next!

If I can meow there, I can meow anywhere

Squaredy Cats started in NY. It's up to you where they go!

We had the idea to do a Squaredy Cat for each of the 50 states, and it's up to you, the fans which one comes next. Post your vote on our Facebook page wall, and we'll keep a running tally. So far the reaction is great! We love that you love it!
Thanks to your overwhelming support we're getting requests for more than just states, and we're answering the call. This evening we'll be posting the most requested country. So, we'll be adding an album of countries that are represented by Squaredy Cats fans!
We chose the Statue of Liberty as a representation for New York because of its iconic nature. We usually think of the nation itself when we think of the image; but Lady Liberty resides in the good state of New York, and we're proud to turn her into a Squaredy Cat.

You're a star

A Squaredy Cat as Paul Stanley, the Star Child from KISS.

This is the last of the KISS Squaredy Cats from our fandom collection. We had fun making them since KISS is so much fun. Some of the fans on the Facebook page didn't know who they are, but that's okay. The star child is about going after your dreams, and letting nothing stop you. That's what we stand for too! Do what you love, and be a star!

Dessert goes straight to my…head

Whipped cream!

This was a Squaredy Cat we designed a long time ago for the first Style Guide. We posted it to the Facebook page and you told us what your favorite dessert was. Maybe asking that question was a mistake because now we've got a sweet tooth, and the cravings don't stop!

Ace Kitty

A Squaredy Cat as Ace Frehley.

Shock Me is one of Ace Frehley's most popular songs from KISS. The caption may seem a little awkward if you know how Squaredy Cats captions are supposed to work, but Ace Frehley is awkward too. Probably the most controversial member of KISS from the fact that he was in the band - out of the band - a member again - not a member - hired back - left again. His make-up is so much fun. We just KNEW it would look good on a Squaredy Cat.
See the other members of KISS, and more fandom Squaredy Cats on our Facebook page.

Squaredy Catfishies

Squaredy Cats Zodiacs.

Sadly, this is the end of our Zodiac Squaredy Cats campaign. We loved your feedback and reactions on the Facebook page. It gave us new ideas on what we can do in the future. We hope you get involved with our next project. We're doing new Squaredy Cats for each of the 50 States! We'll probably do countries as well.
We saved Pisces for last because it's not only the final sign in the Zodiac, but the best sign ever ;)
It was one of the signs that we had ideas about way back when we did this one.

Cats don't ALL hate water

The water sign - Aquarius.

There will only be only more Zodiac post to the blog after this. We've got a great interactive idea coming up on our Facebook page, so if you had fun with the Zodiac Squaredy Cats you're really going to love what we have brewing. Hello to all the Aquarius kitties!

Yummy kitty

A Chocolate Squaredy Cat. Maybe some day.

Let's get on with things, and post to last Easter Squaredy Cat to the blog. We saved this for last because it was our favorite. Completely inspired by that cartoon that seems to have been done by a hundred different cartoonists where the chocolate bunny with the tail bitten off says, "My butt hurts," to the chocolate bunny with the ears bitten off answering, "What?"
This is the warmest, shiniest, melts-in-your-mouth looking chocolate kitty you've ever seen!

The Capricorn Squaredy Cat.

We're still not finished posting all the Zodiac Squaredy Cats to the blog. You can see them all on the Facebook page Zodiac photo album. This one is similar to Aries, but Capricorns know different.
Let us know at this link if you have ideas for more sets you'd like to see.

It's a cat eat dog world

Squaredy Cats is not going anywhere.

Yesterday was April Fools Day, and we thought it would be fun change the profile pic on our Facebook page to a Squaredy Dogs pic. Whoa! What a reaction! We never expected to see such a revolt. Along with the changed profile pic we posted this cute Squaredy Dog. Lots of fans got it right away, and LOLed, but some thought we were seriously changing our cats to dogs. Though, some approved, it's not happening. Squaredy Cat is a word play on "scaredy cat." There's just no such thing as a "squaredy dog."…except maybe this one ;)
We look forward to next April 1. Don't forget we like to play around :)

Don't look a square horse in the mouth

Squaredy Sagittarius

We're continuing to upload our Zodiac Squaredy Cats to the blog. If you missed them you can see them all  at this link. Fan the Facebook page while you're there.
This was one of the most difficult Zodiac cats we did. We made several attempts, but because Sagittarius is half man, half horse everything looked weird. We finally settled on just putting a horse costume around the cat, but it kept looking like a savage caveman warrior or something. What really made it work was pulling down the center of the hood to give the impression of a horse face. The problem is the Sagittarius isn't supposed to have the face of a horse. Well, they all couldn't be perfect, but at least he's a cutie.
