Moderncat Holiday Give-a-thon: Win a Custom Pet Portrait from Jobi Harris

Sun, Dec 12, 2010

Art & Sculpture, Giveaways

We have a bonus give-a-thon prize today from watercolor artist Jobi Harris. Jobi is offering two 8 x 10 custom water color portraits, one for you and one for your favorite charity. This is a great prize for a charity to receive because they could use it to honor a special kitty or volunteer, or they could use it for a fundraiser by offering it as an auction or raffle prize. The retail value is $150, so that could be a very nice fundraiser.

To enter to win, please leave a comment on this post with the name of the charity you would donate the second portrait to. The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve along with all the other give-a-thon winners. Thanks, Jobi!

    This would be a great way to honor my little cat Fry who passed away over Thanksgiving. It would also be a good way to raise awareness of urinary crystals and what terrible things they can do to a cat :(
    It would be nice to give one to Buddy Dog, too

    Love this. I wish I had done something like this with my last kitty and so this would be very special to do with my new one.

    This would be a great fund-raising item for the shelter where I adopted Emmy — The Southside Animal Shelter & Rescue in Indianapolis –

    I would want a portrait of my beloved Amigo. He passed away just a couple weeks ago and we miss him so much. I’m not sure which cat Tree House Humane Society – Bucktown Branch would pick to have a portrait of – they have over 100 cats…never-the-less they are my charity of choice.

    I’m sure Susan has a favorite kitty at that she would love to have a portrait of!

    I just lost my beautiful Bud-lite and would love to have a portrait of him.

    This would be such a special portrait of our precious Tiger, our Maine Coon that crossed over the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 20. I would love this painting to be of him and our little feral cat, Misty Star, who cared for him and was his close companion until he died. She and we miss him so much. And, my charity could feature one of it’s many precious cats! I know the founder, Donna, has many to choose from.

    This would be an amazing gift for me because my cat, Jayden, is my life. He’s like me and my fiance’s son that we could never have.. Had some misfortunate events happen early this year and without Jayden, I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through it. If I had his portrait to always remember him by, I would never have a void in my heart where I couldn’t look at his precious face everyday. Also the cats at Sacramento Cats on the River would, I’m sure, appreciate this as they would have beautiful portraits to speak to the wonderful work they do in feeding and saving kittens and cats along the sacramento river/delta.

    My cat Oy is my baby. I rescued him when he was 4 years old and he is so grateful, he stands on his hind legs for a hug every day when I come home from work. I would be extremely appreciative of this prize and I know the Whatcom Humane Society would be as well!
