Rags to Riches Contest--Charlie's Magic Carpet to Abu Dhabi

 Charlie is the new Richie Rich

 UPDATE: Congratulations to CAREN GITTLEMAN of

It's that time again to celebrate another rescue and successful adoption. A year has passed since Charlie was rescued, adopted and rode the magic carpet to an exotic new home--Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates!

Charlie's story is special. So much that we devoted a three-part series of blog postings. For a brief recap before we get to the contest, Charlie was dumped and abandoned in our neighborhood.  In the nick of time, he was adopted by a young couple.  But then Nina and Felipe were leaving Miami and moving to the Middle East! What about Charlie? As responsible pet parents, they planned and coordinated special air travel for their new family member and spared no expense. No hesitation.  We wondered about the care of cats at a local cattery in Abu Dhabi and Charlie's adjustment to a condo in the desert.

Charlie is living the good life. From the humid, palm tree city of Miami, to the desert and palm tree city of Abu Dhabi, Charlie has struck it rich!   So now it's time to celebrate with another RAGS TO RICHES contest.

 Since the theme of Charlie's story is faraway travel, Riverfront Cats is giving away snazzy travel prizes  we know you will love! ONE lucky winner receives:

  • A $100 airline e-gift card for your choice of American or Delta Airlines.

  • Your choice of red or white handsome travel tote with cat imprint.

  • A hand held digital scale to easily weigh your luggage.
