Name The Steampunk Cat Mascot Contest
Gallery at the VAULT has a new incredibly cute cat mascot all decked out, ready and waiting for our Steampunk Show, August 16 through September 27. This cat needs a name. Please send us your idea for a name via phone, face book, email, or a visit to the gallery, along with your name, phone number and how you heard about the contest. The contest is open to all ages. The winner will receive a crisp $10. bill, have their name on a placard with the cat and be publicized in various media. The winner will be announced on August 10.
Of course, this cat is up for adoption and hopes to find it's forever home during the show. The steampunk attire can be removed for lazy days off. The cat has been created by Sue Carey using wool from her own sheep.
