Hey there Fellow Cat Lovers!

Purrhaps you would be interested in helping us Spread the Mews to all the cool cybercats you know. You can collar their interest by telling them about The Club...

But wait..... What's that you say? You aren't a member yet? If you are not a member yet, I will paws right now, while you make tracks to join.

Once you do, I will tell you about an Exciting contest coming your way..... Here, I will even make it easy for you - here is the link you need....

The Club

[size="large"]Ok, are you back? The contest "Spread the Mews" is geared toward you getting as many of your pals that you can, to join The Club.

We have purrfect purrizes for two lucky winners: The Deluxe Edition of Newton the Screensaver Kitty for the First Place Winner, and a wonderful Snugglekittie for the second place winner. [/size]

Newton the Screensaver Kitty has a very realistic meow that is guaranteed to drive your cats crazy, as they stake out this perplexing kitty who will now live inside your computer. He even has cyber-fleas! You don't have to scoop a litterbox, or feed him. He will just come out during the day and entertain himself when your computer is idle. He is delightfully different! Here look for yourself!

SnuggleKitty is .... A wonderful rescue tool for orphaned baby kitties. A comforting companion to a distressed, ill or nervous pet, or even something that will help a restless human baby sleep better! You can read about Snugglekitties unique features here:

[size="large"]The two TCS Forum members who get the most people to sign up will win the following! The First-Prize Winner will be awarded Newton the Screensaver Kitty and the Second Prize Winner will receive a Snugglekittie- (available in a choice of colors).

If you use the following sample email as a guideline when you email your friends, then you will be assured of getting the credit for the sign-up!

And please feel free to personalize this email in any way you would like!

Remember to tell them to add YOUR username from TCS to the form that will be provided to them once they are subscribed. Or else you will not get the credit![/size]

Sample Email for you to use (replace the words "YourUsername" with your actual username):


Hi there,

I need your help in a contest I am entering. I think this might interest you as well - but only if you want lots of cool stuff for your cat :-)

I am trying to get as many members as possible to sign up for a new online club for cat lovers - the Club. Members of the club enjoy monthly contests, coupons, freebies and lots more - all for FREE. With the Holidays coming soon. would be the purrfect place to find stocking stuffers for your purrballs.

As a member of the club, you will be the first one on the block to find out which cat merchant is running what special sale right before Christmas. Using as a launching pad for Holiday Shopping just makes good cents!

So please head there now and join their club from this URL: and help me at the same time for a chance to win a really cool prize!

When your subscription is confirmed, you will be asked to tell them who referred you and then please use my board name: YourUserName here. Also once you join, you can email your friends also.

Please help me by getting as many cat lovers as you know join the club and ask them to put down YourUserName as who referred you.

Thanks again!

Contest Rules

1. The wonderful Newton Interactive Deluxe Screensaver will be awarded to the TCS member whose username was mentioned most frequently by new club members.
Second-Runner-Up receives a wonderful fuzzy Snugglekittie for their very own!

2. Please do not spam anyone with your message. Make sure you email only people you know and who know you, and most importantly who love cats!

3. Your newly-recruited club members must remain members at least throughout November to count.

4. Each new club member that mentions your name will be counted once. If they unsubscribe and then subscribe again they are not counted twice.

5. You need to be a Club member yourself in order to participate. Your own subscription will not count in the contest.

6. Please do not spam The Club with fake emails - emails are checked for authenticity before they are subscribed to the club, but above all we are counting on your honesty and integrity.

I think it's a really great idea! Pretty much everyone I e-mail is either already a member of this site, or I have already told them about it and asked them if they wanted to join, but I can always try!! (I realize meowhoo is a different site, but I figured if most of the people I told about this site have never stopped by, they might not at the other site, either...but I figure it is worth a shot!!! ) It is a really good idea with the holidays coming up, people can find whatever they need for their pets!!!

I love the name, too!!!! "Spread the Mews" that is so cute!!!

Two paws up for that name and this contest!!!

BTW....I'm pretty sure I went and joined the club quite awhile ago, but I am so there anyway I could double check to see if I did join? If I haven't....I want to right away!!!!

Where do people put the refferal? All I see on the sign up page is a place to put your email address.
post #19 of 24
They need to go through the sign-up process which involves getting a validation email and clicking the link that's provided to them. Reason for that is we don't want to spam anyone and we want to make sure that every email address that we get really gets to the person that actually wants to subscribe.

Once they click the link they get to a page that tells them:


You have been added to the club!
Your e-mail address, has been subscribed to the club list.

If you have arrived through a referral from contest please click here

A notification e-mail has been sent to your address: with a brief summary of the list and instructions on how to unsubscribe.

Thank you for joining!
They're supposed to click on the special link and then they're taken to the referral form. Sorry if that wasn't so clear - I'll make that sentence with a larger font and bold so it will stand out more. It is working though - we are getting people's input.

Anyway, sending us the list of emails was a good idea - we will go through them and give you credit for each one that has subscribed. Other people may want to do the same - if your friends tell you they signed up but couldn't find where to put you as referrrers, then please send us their email. If it is subscribed to the club, you will get your credit.

Thank you for participating!
