Counter productive!

Hello everyone! This is HAMMY!

Hello world!

Rumblemum has put ME in CHARGE of this contest!! I'm so excited! For some reason she thought that there would be a question of Rumble's objectivity when it came to the bootiful ladycats...

ANYWAY! Here is the contest...

In our house there are NO pussycats allow on the countertops, tabletops or shelves. Of course I NEVER go on the counters, but Rumbles...?

My feet are not on the counter so it doesn't count
This doesn't count as a counter
So, in order to keep Rumbles healthy and happy, Rumblemum decided to try to stop using chemical cleaners wherever possible. She worries that Rumbles is getting chemicals on his paws and then washing his paws and getting chemicals IN him. She's using quite a few things like steam cleaning or using vanilla extract or baking soda to clean.

But the coolest thing Rumblemum found was this cool product called an e-Cloth. It's a cloth that cleans without using any chemicals! Now she usually thinks that things like this don't work, but she was blown away by how well these cloths do work - all you need is the cloth and a spritz of water and it gets surfaces really clean!

So this is the contest - we want to know if you're counter productive! Do you get to go on the counters, or are you denied the joy? Tell us in the comments, or better still - to be in for additional entries you can post a photo to your blog or to Facebook of you on the counter or table or shelf. If you live in a house where you're really not allowed on the counters you can post a photo of an empty countertop (to prove that there are no kitties/doggies on the counters in your house). Then come back here and give us the URL of your post! :)

The contest will end at 4pm 30th June (that's NZ time) and we'll announce a winner then! The winner will get one General Purpose e-Cloth - works on stainless steel, worktops, baths and glass.

Contest is open to everyone, everywhere!

(please note: e-Cloth has not sponsored this post or this contest - Rumblemum just really loves this product and it helps keep us healthy :))

And now for some more HAMMY!

Don't I have an angelic face?

No way would I go on the counter!

We go anywhere we want including the counters! There's no stopping us.

Prancer Pie said...

We get on the counters if we want, too! Our Mommy worries about chemicals too and just uses soap and water.

Happy Sunday! xoxo

Princess Puff, King Moo & Sammy get on the kitchen counter tops, usually when it's time for them to eat. Sometimes King Moo gets up there so he can look out the door to watch birds in the trees. Poor little Daisy is so fat that she can't jump that high. When I bend over to pick up their dishes, Baby Two jumps on my back and then on to the counter just so she can be nosy and see what's in the sink.

Punapippuri said...

Oh yes, we are ALL counter surfers. We are allowed everywhere. It's a little hard to stop us.

The Chair Speaks said...

Oh Hammy, our human can't think straight because of being mesmerised by your captivating eyes! Purrs!

Not on counters? HahaHaaaaaaah! We practically live on the counters!

It probably doesn't count as a counter, but is also possibly even worse in terms of infraction, so we wanted to mention that #1 posted a photo on FB yesterday, showing The Beebs and Genji "decorating" the dining room table (set for dinner guests...).

Purrs,
The Chans

Old Kitty said...

Beautiful Hammy!! You are doing a grand job hosting this lovely contest!! We wish everyone luck - we've got e-clothes already!!

Take care

Fiona the Diva does whatever she wants -- but she has never wanted to go on the kitchen countertops. This surprises me, because she's gone on every other tabletop. I think it's because she's just a little too zaftig to jump that high. Also, her meals are all served on the floor, so she'd much rather be there.

BTW, I just ordered a five-pack of e-Cloths from Amazon, based on your recommendation.

Marg said...

Oh Hammy, those eyes are something else. And Rumbles, you are so right, the paws are not on the counter.
Of course we get on the counter. We will see if we can get a picture of it and post it. You all take care.

Brian said...

That eCloth thingy sounds way cool. I'm not allowed on the counters either and someone keeps pick up my furs and putting them on the counter just to get me in trouble!

meowmeowmans said...

That eCloth sure sounds awesome. I'm not allowed on the kitchen counters at all (bathroom counters are okay, though). I'm not supposed to be on the dining room table, either, but have been caught there a few times. MOL!

Hugs,

Moosey

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

No one is allowed on counters here. Of course, every once in a while someone gets caught on one.. Especially the counter with the window!
Hammy, I have to say, you are so darn cute! Can I just kiss your darling little face??? Pwease?

Ginger Jasper said...

Firstly I must say those photo's are stunning. I am not allowed on the work tops and don't get on them at all. I get everywhere else but not up there. Hugs GJ x

The Island Cats said...

Oh we're all over the counters. The mom tried to keep us off, but gave up long ago. As long as she's not cooking, she doesn't try to stop us anymore.

If you visit our blog today, you'll see what kind of trouble Ernie gets into on the counter! Haha!

And this photo was posted to FB today as well.

Fun contest! The mom is very interested in this e-cloth!

Flynn said...

I am not allowed on the counters but I sit on mum's laptop case which is on the counter. No part of me touches the counter so she can't argue, right? She has even given in and put a towel on it to make it more comfy for me.

Flynn said...

I have just posted a photo on my timeline on FB.

Sweet Purrfections said...

We've never been on the counter tops, but we on the table top all the time!

Brulee is weak in the knees seeing such beautiful pictures of Hammy today.

Derby, Ducky said...

Mum tries not to clean with nasty stuff. Plain soap and water if possible, mild soaps.

Cathy Keisha said...

Hammy, I'm allowed on the counters but they're usually so full of crap, er stuff that I can't get on them. I do go on the table. TW used to use antibiotic wipes on the table, then she used Earth friendly Method but now she just uses soap and water. Method is the only cleaning product she uses in the bathrooms and on the furniture and she steam cleans the floors. She thinks Nicky dies because he got poisoned by the Swifter she used to use on the kitchen floor where his food was.

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

That sounds like a great product!
There is no pic of me or Kitshka on the counter because, well, it is forbidden so we never go there - cough cough...

Caren Gittleman said...

What a great and FUN contest!!! I'm not allowed on the counter but I DO go up there when Mom isn't looking!

Oz theTerrier said...

Well, being a small dog I cannot get up on the counters. In addition, I am not allowed on any table. *sigh* It is tough to be a small dog sometimes.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We both go on the counters - it's so we can see if they are clean and NOT because we're looking for any tasty morsels.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

We go where we want, counters, everywhere, stove!

Jacqueline said...

We own the house, I mean, we are here much more than our Mommy, right??...That means we go on the island, but never on the actual kitchen cabinets because we choose not to jump on the counters, but the island counts, right??...We know, we are always right!!MOL...LOVE the precious Hammy photos and of course, the handsome Rumbles countersurfing photo as well...Happy Tuesday and week ahead, dear friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

Loretta Thomas said...

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your kind words. They meant so much to us doing our time of need! Wishing you a beautiful evening!
Hugs & purrs,
Kitty and Loretta

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

There is not a surface in this house the Human could keep me off IF I really wanted to get up there. I am not interested in most of them; however, I *do* like the dining room table. My philosophy is: If it's in the house, it's for the kitty. What could be more obvious?

Karen Jo said...

We all go everywhere, counters, bookshelves, desks, tables, you name it and it has had a kitty on it. Mom uses an all natural cleaner that is non-poisonous and mild soap and water to clean. We love the pictures of Rumbles counter surfing and Hammy is very handsome.

Jacqueline said...

Hey, guys, we posted Sukki on the island with wine today!...Made us think of you two handsome boys=you should join us!!...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

mythreemoggies said...

Wow beautiful eyes x

Simba said...

We go wherever we like! Audrey walks all over all the counters, all the time, even around the stove. Simba doesn't go on the counters and only goes on the kitchen table if people are sitting there with no food. However he is always on the dining room table, computer desk, bedroom dressers, etc.

The Florida Furkids said...

We just posted a pic to FB. We NEVER go on the counters...yeah...sure....

BeadedTail said...

There's no limits in our house so we get on the counters all the time! We'll try and post a pic on FB!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Doods! We OWN the counters at our home, MOL!

Cory said...

We go EVERYWHERE. Counters, tables...beds, couches, chairs. It is OUR house. OUR stuff. We are not allowed on the dining room table when food is served, but we still give it a try. There are more cats in our house than humans and woofies. Therefore we rule.

Clooney said...

Oh theese one is a good one! Neytiri LOVES the counter for sure!

Clooney said...

Rumbles and Hammy, we just posted our entry at: http://iblogfornum-nums.blogspot.ca/2013/06/surfin-canadian-w-eh.html

Cat said...

My boys are not allowed on the kitchen counter but every once in a while I find them on it. They are allowed on the island and often lounge there waiting for dinner. I was also worried about chemicals, any surface in the house that the cats touch is washed with vinegar and water only! I hadn't heard of an ecloth but I will definitely check it out :-)

Katie and Glogirly said...

Um hi Rumbles and Hammy. Waffles here.
I'm not allowed on the counter. When I go up there Glogirly says those HBO words. But if I WERE allowed up on the counter... well you'll just have to look at my photo on our Facebook Page.

love, Waffles

Here's the link to the photo:

Dash Kitten said...

Our fosters are the only one that have even THOUGHT of going on the counter tops!!

Now Miranda has taken to it! These fosters are a bad influence. Mum says no to counter tops as ours runs right around to where the stove is and you can imagine......

Derby, Ducky said...

Hope we are not late!

Ann Staub said...

That sounds pretty cool guys! My Kitty Meow Meow was a counter surfer. I let her though. She got up there to avoid the dog and I fed her up there too because Shiner would eat it if I hadn't.
