Mighty Lou Parties

Hi Whitey,

Things are back to normal here and Mighty Lou is hitting the party circuit hard. I got a purrsonal invitation to an event called “Top Dog.” It was billed as “Florida Gulf Coast’s premier dog lover’s event” and was for the benefit of Donte’s Den.

Mighty Lou Arrives at Top Dog

 

 

 

Now I know what you’re going to say – “Why do we want to do anything for dogs?” You’re right, Dude, but this was for our friend Marsha Panuce. She’s so kind to me and to Cat Depot, I thought I would grace her with my mighty presence. ​I took the purple coach since there were dogs everywhere.

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Stays in Cart to Avoid Dog Drool

 

 

​Every time I attend a dog event, they drool all over my cape and I had my tux on. It’s just safer in here for me. I don’t want to have to hurt any of those dogs.

 

Mighty Lou visits the exhibits

 

There were some merchandise vendors there so I checked them out. This young lad was really taken by me. I had my glasses on so I could clearly read “dog treats” on all of those packages. Where’s the CAT stuff, Dude??

 

Mighty Lou's Mom on Stage

 

A special thing happened during the night. My mom had done a painting of Marsha’s dog, Donte, and it was unveiled on stage. ​There she was, way bigger than life. I should have been up there with her.

 
Mighty Lou's mom presents painting to Marsha Panuce

 

​The painting was unveiled. Marsha was touched…….I was proud. The crowd adored your old Mighty Lou. ABC-7 Chief Meteorologist Bob Harrigan was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. He loved me and kept mentioning me as being the only cat and so well behaved. But of course!

 

Mighty Lou received a kiss from Samantha

 

 

I also met an old friend, Samantha, who couldn’t resist me.

 

So I mingled with the Donte’s Den supporters, saw Mom’s presentation and met new friends. Oh, and I had fish sticks for dinner!

Mighty Lou takes a napThe second part of the evening was all a bunch of stupid dog tricks. I was not interested. So I found a quiet spot and took a little power nap.

All in the life of a Caped Crusader.

Until next week, my friend,

The Joke is On Mighty Lou?

Dear Whitey,

Your Ol’ Mighty Lou likes a good joke but I like to be the one in control. I can play a good joke on someone but when the tables are turned, I fail to see the humor.

My mom went on a cruise, right? OK, so I got left behind. Cruise rules so I can live with that. But what happened on the cruise is not funny.

Here’s how it went:

Mints on Pillows - No Mighty Lou

 

Nice chocolates on the bed each night. No Mighty Lou

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dining Table - No Mighty Lou

 

 

Nice tables and food everywhere. No Mighty Lou.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fancy Soap - No Mighty Lou

 

 

Nice bathrooms with fancy soap.  No Mighty Lou.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Views from every window - but no Mighty Lou

 

 

 

Nice views out of every window. No Mighty Lou.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cruise Ship Shows - Mighty Lou Wasn't Here

 

 

Nice shows every night. No Mighty Lou.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Wasn't at the Piano Bar

 

 

Nice piano bar lounge. No Mighty Lou.

Unacceptable in Mighty Lou’s World!! But….

 

 

 

 

Now Mom is home from the cruise.

My feelings?

A picture is worth a thousand words…….

Mighty Lou is happy his mom is home from her cruise

 

Next week, Dude.

Mighty Lou Left Behind

Dear Whitey,

Well, Dude, it’s official. I, Mighty Lou Caped Hero, have been left behind!

Mighty Lou Tries to Find Out About His Mom's Cruise

 

I knew my mom was planning a cruise. I got my globe out to see exactly where this boat was going.I put my nautical cape on and got out the binoculars. What more could I do?

 

Mighty Lou Wants to go on a Cruise

My Mighty Lou tail even sprung into action to test the wind direction and speed.

 

Mighty Lou Charts the Course of His Mom's Cruise

 

 

I did my homework. I charted the course and knew the waters well.

 

 

Mighty Lou Checks out the Globe

 

I had my finger right on the exact spot for that cruise docking. I was on it, Man!

 

Mighty Lou Sits on Suitcase

 

 

 

But as the suitcase closed, so closed the opportunity for me to actually go on the cruise. It was packed, it was zipped up and it was locked. Look who is on the outside looking in? How dare she?

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou fakes an injury

 

I was forced to reduce myself to actions unbefitting a caped hero. I removed the cape (don’t hate me) and plead for mercy…​I assumed the pose and faked an injured backend. Surely she will show me mercy and either take me or stay home with me. I moaned in pain and begged her to stay home and nurse me back to health. She didn’t buy it. I’m not a good actor.

 
Mighty Lou is left behind

 

​So she left me here and is cruising to who knows where. I’m left here wearing this nautical cape, which now has no meaning, looking at a globe that now means nothing.

Feel sorry for me, Whitey. I’m on my own for a while.

Somethin’s Fishy Around Here

Hi Whitey,

Mighty Lou on Messy Bed

 

Something smells fishy around here. Things are a mess and that’s not normal. When things aren’t normal, the Caped Crusader needs to investigate. My first clue was that stuff was scattered all over the bedroom. Clothes, shoes, bags, everything. It’s a mess.

 

 

Mighty Lou is Worried

 

 

I immediately went into my worried pose. Sister Mixie was concerned about me.

 

 

Mighty Lou Observes from Closet

 

 

I did what any good investigator would do. Kept a low profile in an inconspicuous space and observed.

My observation proved that there’s something fishy indeed. My mom is going on a painting cruise for 10 days! My capes are not in the pile of clothes to pack and I am gravely worried.

 

 

Mighty Lou disguises himself

 

 

Perhaps if I disguise myself as clothes she will pack me and take me with her.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou tries to pack his cape

 

 

I’ll also give her another big clue that I want to go….My nice sailing cape and sunglasses should make her know I’m on board for the trip.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou stays in disguise

 

 

My pursuit to go will continue. I am not above staying here like this until she notices me and packs me.

I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Your Caped Buddy,
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

 

 

This is serious, Mighty Lou! You can’t be left behind  When she opens the suitcase, in you go and stay low! She will never know you are there until you are safely aboard the ship.

Whitey Wobbles dons his cape to give Mighty Lou good luck

Bon Voyage good buddy! Keep me posted. I have my Cape on to give you even more power and send you positive vibes!

FYI…Two more of our older feline friends at Cat Depot found their forever homes in September! We sure are doing a great job, Mighty Lou!

CAPE POWER!!!

Crazy 4 Paws

Hi Whitey,

I’m a bit late with the blog this morning. I slept in because I had a really busy day yesterday.Crazy 4 Paws is a big pet expo and I, Mighty Lou was the main attraction. Of course, I’m the main attraction wherever I go. The place was crawling with drooling, smelly dogs, it’s easy to show them up.

Mighty Lou at Crazy 4 Paws Pet Expo

 

My job was to work in my mom’s booth and help her show paintings. I arranged the table myself so you see I put my magazine cover and my portrait right up front. Who needs to see paintings of those other animals??

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Greets Customers

 

​I was in charge of overseeing the prints. Any time anyone came to go through them, I greeted them and helped them find just the right one.

 

Mighty Lou Meets Hope

 

Occasionally, I found a dog that had good taste. This is Hope. She’s was just “hoping” she could meet the great Mighty Lou. Well done, Hope!

My real purpose at the show was to tell people about special needs cats and work for the Friends Like Me Fund. I really worked the crowd on that end.

 

Mighty Lou Says Show Me The Money

 

“Show me the money, Lady!”

 

 

 

Mighty Lou helps people contribute to Friends Like Me

 

​I pushed their hands to the opening in my money box and forced those bills in. (Mighty Lou does not accept coins!)

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Accepts Money for Friends Like Me

 

“Well done, Lady!  Thanks!”

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Takes a Nap

 

​The crowd was tiring. Even a Super Hero needs a break once in a while. My admiring public still hovered around asking “is that cat real?” Are they kidding me? Every once in a while I lifted my head and they jumped back because they thought I was a prop. Quite entertaining to catch these silly humans off guard.

 

 

Mighty Lou Checks Out a Shiny Pendant

 

Towards the end of the day I decided to take a break from work and stroll around to look at the other vendors. Something shiny had been attracting me from across the room all day so I went to investigate. ​See this pretty pendant?
Mighty Lou is interested in the shiny balls

 

​I was most attracted to these shiny balls. They were very beautiful. Wait!

Upon closer inspection, they have names on the inside! There are collars on the inside of some of them! Yikes! I just noticed that sign behind the booth! Pet Passings??????? Mighty Lou has left the building!!

 

 

Mighty Lou Wearing Glasses

 

And that, my friend, is just one day in the life of a Caped Crusader.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Mighty Lou Falls Hard

Dear Whitey,

Now you know your caped friend has a hard edge and I work with the strength of the super hero I am. You know my purrsona is the “tough guy who gets the job done.” You know “it takes might to make things right,” and I am Mighty. But even Superman had his Kryptonite. That didn’t make him less of a super hero, right?

Lily Calls Mighty Lou on the phone

 

Well Mighty Lou met his Kryptonite and it came in the form of a soft, cuddly little bundle called Lily. She called me yesterday to see if she could come and see me.

 

 

Mighty Lou tries to hear Lily on the phone

 

 

I was listening as hard as I could but I could not hear her sweet voice. She forgot I was deaf. Drat! But lucky for me, her Mum drove her up to see me! My mom did a painting of her and she came to pick it up.

 

Lily with her painting

 

 

Ooooooo….she’s so beautiful. She’s a special needs little girl like me, so we’re a match made in Heaven. She works hard in Fort Myers for special needs and she does a good job.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou is selfish with his things

 

 

 

I am known to be a little selfish…….OK, a lot selfish….with my
things. My sisters never get to touch any of my stuff.

 

 

Mighty Lou gives Lily his mouts

 

 

But when Lily was here, everything I had was hers. I love my little mouse even more now because the sweet scent of Lily is on it!

 

 

Mighty Lou in his mom's art studio

 

 

NO ONE gets to share my mom or her art. I go to art classes with her and I am the only one who gets to be with her when she creates.

 

 

Lily is allowed in the art studio

 

But what did I do for Lily? I threw the doors to the studio open and let her have full access to everything! I’m telling you, Dude, this is serious. Mighty Lou has lost his heart and Lily found it!

 

 

 

Look Mighty Lou in the eye

 

You want me to tell you how serious this is? Look me right in the eyes, Dude. This is going to blow your caped mind.

You know how we feel about our capes. They have super powers and no one touches them or is allowed entrance into our caped world. Right?

 

 

Let me show you the extent to which your old Mighty Lou has lost his heart…………..

Lily wears Mighty Lou's cape

 

Yep! My little lady said she was a bit chilly so I whipped my cape off and covered her in Mighty Lou love.

 

 

You see what I mean? I’ve lost it! I have completely lost my heart!

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Winks

 

Until next week, my friend. Let this little wink let you know there’s a lot more Lily to come! I’ve got it bad and that’s good!

 

Love,
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

School Days and Mighty Lou’s Bus Ride

Hey Whitey,

School is starting all over the place. Mighty Lou will not be left out of any kind of event so I plan on going to school. Not sure what I’ll be learning (I know so much already), but I’m going.

 

Mighty Lou is ready for school

 

 

I’m all ready. I have a new cape with cat pictures and words on it, a lunch bag and a backpack.

 

 

 

 

MIghty Lou Goes to School

 

​Just to make sure I double-checked my backpack and lunchbag. They both have my name on them so no one touches my cape power snack food.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou raises his hand in class

 

 

When I get there and the teacher asks a question, I’m going to be the first one to raise his hand with the answers. I plan on being Teacher’s Pet (pun intended).

 

 

 

Mighty Lou goes to the blackboard

 

 

When I get up to the front to answer the question, I’ll have to make sure to wear my glasses. ​If I have to read the board, I’m going to have to get pretty close. I may need to up the prescription on my specks soon.

 

 

Mighty Lou Takes His Seat

 

 

We’ll probably get assigned seats in the classroom. ​Ah there’s my seat. Those are my glasses.

 

 
Mighty Lou Takes His Seat

 

 

​I’ll climb right up in my chair like a good student.

 

​I will take my seat and show them all my Mighty Lou greatness.

 

 

Mighty Lou is at the head of the class

 

 

As good as I am, I know I’ll be head of the class in the first week! Mighty Lou will not be outdone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyway, that’s how I think it will go. School hasn’t actually started yet. It starts on Monday so I’ll let you know then.

Mighty Lou is the perfect student

 

 

In the meantime, Mighty Lou is ready for School Days and prepared to shine!

Love ya Dude,

Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

Hey Whitey,

Mighty Lou waits at the bus stop

 

Thanks for reminding me about taking the bus to school. You’re right, I will need to take the bus when I go. So I set out to see what bus I would be taking. I got my books and backpack and waited at the bus stop.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou's Bus

 

 

 

 

Then I saw a bus about my size and thought that must be the one. ​So I got on-board but no driver came to take the wheel. What is this? Are we supposed to drive ourselves to school?

 

 

 
Mighty Lou drives the bus

 

 

Well Mighty Lou does not mind taking charge so I jumped to the cause. This is a vehicle I could drive if I had to.

 

 

 

 

 
Mighty Lou on School bus

 

 

 

​Just as I was starting to drive off, I noticed something up front. There it is! It’s the real school bus! Hey guys, wait for me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou on the real school bus

 

 

​Made it! This is the real bus!

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou takes the bus to school

 

 

I jumped right in and was happy to have finally gotten on the right bus.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou reaches his destination

 

 

Whew! Made it. All I need to do now is settle into these comfy seats and ride.

Later, My Friend!
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

Bye Bye Summer

Dear Whitey,

Here we are at the end of summer. This summer has been a busy one for your caped friend. Cape Crusader’s activities abound!

As I look back on my summer, it was full of fun.

Mighty Lou Enjoys Boating

 

Boating is always popular and Mighty Lou is not one to shy away from adventures on the sea. But…..

 

 

 

Mighty Lou as Ship Captain

 

 

Mighty Lou must be in charge! I will not take a back seat. This is more like it. Ahhhh….Captain of the Seas.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou's Sail Boat

 

However, that one got away from me a few times so I decided to bring it down a notch and get something more suited to me. ​This one was just right and served me well on my own little jaunts.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Checks out the menu

 

 

 

Summer is always a nice time for outdoor dining and a guy gets hungry. Mighty Lou dined in some of the best outdoor restaurants in town.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Rides a Boogie Board

 

 

Back to the fun. I, Mighty Lou, boogied with the best of them. How many boogie board cats do YOU know??

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Goes Down the Slide

 

 

There were some thrill rides along the way.
All in all it was a relaxing summer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Relaxes by the Pool

 

 

So bye, bye summer. Mighty Lou moves into the fall season and looks for more fun.

 

Have a good week my friend.
Mighty Lou
Caped Crusader

 

 

 

Lots of News

Hey Mighty Lou!

Daisy Doodles Helps Whitey Wobbles Write His Blog

 

Just read the recap of your busy summer. Well, a Caped Crusader’s work is never done. I have been so busy (and in so much trouble) that I had to hire some help. Daisy Doodles has agreed to write my Blog for me…of course, I will dictate to her.

 

 

 

Whitey Wobbles

 

I better tell you how I got in trouble this week. We have these nice big plants on the lanai and I like to get up in the pot and lie on the cool dirt. Well, I forgot to get cleaned up and went in the house pretty dirty…my mom was mad! She washed me with a wash cloth…I was humiliated!

 

No more rolling in the dirt for me! I do have some really exciting news. Well, it is good and bad. The good news is, I got a call from Miss Marianne at Cat Depot telling me that 7 cats over 8 years old have found their forever homes. Isn’t that awesome! My challenge has worked! Now for the bad news  I got all my money out and counted it.

Whitey Wobbles Counts His Money

 

I have enough to pay the $70 now, but I’m running low. That means only one thing…I must find a job! I know I can’t work in landscaping…too dirty  It must be a respectful job for a Caped Crusader  I will put an ad in the Cat News next week to be a model…Purrrfect! I’m sure I will be highly paid! Well, it is Sunday afternoon and I am long overdo for a nap. Have a great week, Mighty Lou! I sure hope more special needs are adopted. Let’s get the word out! I heard Fluffernuuter loves living with Miss Lynn. She is having a little trouble with one of her step brothers, though. Guess he’s not too happy that she has moved in!

 

 

 

Whitey Wobbles Relaxes

 

Ahhhh….finally some rest.

Whitey Wobbles

 

 

 

 

 

Dude!

Stay out of the dirt!  The extra weight will slow you down!

Dictating to a girl?? Well, a guy has to do what he has to do.

OK by me.

As for the adoptions?

WAY TO GO CAT DEPOT!

One of my special needs kitties, Ripple, got adopted, too. I sent my money in right away.

Caped Heroes rule!

Well done,
Mighty Lou

 

 

Caternity Case Solved!

My Dear Pal Whitey,

Your old caped friend is in a great mood this weekend. You know I’ve been under the gun here for the past few weeks with this little feline floozy at my heels. ​

Mighty Lou's family???

This family of hers is getting older and eating more. They’re also approaching that “dangerous” age where they can get themselves out there on the streets and follow in their mother’s footsteps. Did you know these little things can have little things of their own starting at about three months? We have to get the word out to spay and neuter!

Sorry, I got off topic but I am all over getting that word out after this.

Attorney Catticus Finch

Anyway……I’ve had a lot of help but we have unraveled this mystery and I’m off the hook! Attorney Catticus Finch flew in from New York to help with the case.

His team included F. Flea Bailey and Alan Barkowitz. We had the Maury Povich Show all lined up to expose that floozy, Olivia Hussy Mewinsky But to our credit, just before air time, she confessed.

Olivia Hussy Mewinsky

​This is Olivia Hussy Mewinsky. She is unspayed and running the streets. She heard about Mighty Lou’s fame and wanted to jump on board his cape and cash in. She’s done this type of thing before but thanks to my team’s heroic efforts, she’s been exposed.

Her punishment: Spaying! Yep, she got it. Now she can get herself turned around, get off the streets and hopefully adopted into a good home. I hope she turns up on Cat Depot’s doorstep because she has the best shot of turning her life around there.

So who’s the baby daddy? It took a while to find him. He went into hiding.

Baby Daddy

 

​This is the Catsanova who did it! Yes, he looks like me but look closer. I do not have those black spots on my nose. That is how they identified him in the lineup.

He had a list of aliases……….

Donny Juan, William Prowl, Al E. Katt

 

 

Chick Magnet

 

 

 

He’s been known on the streets for years as a real lady’s man. He even had a couple lined up for this weekend before they took him off the streets and put him in the slammer.

Turns out his real name is Newt R. Mee.

If you say that real fast it sounds like Neuter Me. See, he knew the right thing to do but no humans would do it. Pleeaaasseee humans! Neuter us! We put up a fuss but we really want you to do the right thing.

Mighty Lou Holds His Head High

 

So my friend, the case is closed and I can hold my head up high again. Whew!

​Oh, and special thanks to my Purrsonal Advisor, EH, who lead us to most of the clues!

See you next week!

Love,
Mighty Lou
Caped Crusader

Blue Lou Weekend

Dear Whitey,

Here I am again.  I’m still under this veil of dread with that caternity case pending against me for those alleged kittens. I’ll write more on that next week. I have had to secure the services of an attorney and through that, I have the name of the feline floozy who is accusing me. Her name is Olivia Hussy Mewinsky.

Mighty Lou Meets a Girl

 

Here’s her picture in case you meet her out somewhere. Do not approach her!! ​And I mean don’t approach her in ANY way!

 

Mighty Lou checks the weather in his rain slicker

 

 

As for this weekend?  I’m keeping it low. I went out to check the weather….This has got me down, too. It’s raining.

 

Mighty Lou Hopes the Rain will Sto

 

 

I waited a few minutes to see if it was going to get any better. Doesn’t seem like it.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou heads back into the house

 

 

So I’m just going to go in and let this weekend pass me by. I’ll check in with my lawyer on Monday and see what’s happening with the floozy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MightyLouinBed

 

Until then, if you need me, this is where I’ll be………..

Oh, and make sure you tell every feline guy you know to go get neutered. No one should have to go through the accusations I’m facing.

Neuter. Neuter. Neuter.

 

Next week my friend,
Mighty Lou
Caped Crusader

 

 

Hey Mighty Lou,

Glad you are laying low for a while. Hopefully that chick will forget about you. Doesn’t she know you have been “fixed?” I tell all my friends to make sure they get snipped when they are young. That way there are no silly girls trying to make us pay for kittens that are not ours.

Glad the rain has stopped, so we can get out to spread the news. You did hear that Cat Depot got a grant to help with spaying and neutering cats and kittens, didn’t you? And they are adding on another surgical suite!

Anyway, I have been very busy trying to get Harley cleaned up. He likes to play in the flower pots on our lanai and he comes in all dirty. You can watch the video and see how I do it!

Gotta go clean Daisy Doodles up now. Stay out of trouble, Mighty Lou!

Your Caped buddy,
Whitey Wobbles
