Mighty Lou Ties the Knot

Dear Whitey and World,

Mighty Lou Ties the Knot

 

 

We did it! We tied the knot on Saturday!

 

So the wedding day is all about the bride, right? Well this groom may have caused a bit of a problem for her. I was soooo anxious that I made a mistake right before the ceremony.

Mighty Lou Tries to Kiss the Bride Before the Wedding

 

She looked so beautiful. All I did was go over to tell her how beautiful she was right before the ceremony. I wanted to give her a little kiss right before we exchanged vows.

Who knew the groom wasn’t supposed to see the bride before the ceremony!??

 

 

 

Lily didn't want Mighty Lou to see her before the wedding ceremony

 

She was really mad. Look at her face. I got out of there real fast.

 

 

 

 

Lily is beautiful in her wedding gown

 

 

She went through a lot of effort to look that beautiful. How come the groom has to dress himself and she gets help?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou waits at the Altar

 

 

I guess my place is just to wait for her. So I just waited at the altar, ring in hand.

Meantime….

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lily is having second thoughts?

 

 

​I’m hoping she was praying to be a good wife and not that I would behave!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou and Lily at the Altar

 

 

Once we were together at the altar though, everything was fine. The ceremony went off without a hitch – and we got hitched as her adoring eyes gazed upon her man!

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou and Lily Get Hitched

 

​It was really quite romantic and beautiful.

So now we begin our lives together. And together fight for the cause and bring awareness to special needs cats like us. Read about Friends Like Me.

 

 

 

 

Lily Whispers to Lou

 

​”What’s that you say, Lily?”

Oops!

I have to go.

She wants me all to herself!!

Bye!

Mighty Lou at Jingle Paws Jubilee and PawPurr’s Walk

Hi Again Whitey,

I am dead tired but I wanted to get this out to you before I went to bed. Today was Jingle Paws Jubilee and I was hard at work on the PawPurr’s Walk portion of the day.

Mighty Lou has Whitey Wobbles' Picture at PawPurr's Walk for Cape Support

 

First stop was Cat Depot Walker Registration tent. Your mom put a picture of you in the booth so I would have cape support. Nice touch.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou checks out the bagels at PawPurr's Walk

 

Right off the bat the day took a happy turn. Did somebody say “bagels”?? Silly humans thought it was funny to see me root through the assortment. Hey, I’m here to entertain!

 

Mighty Lou holds a quick staff meeting

 

But then it turned serious. The walkers were just about to start arriving and we had to spring into action. Time to get the staff in line…..

​Who knows what would have happened had I not taken the lead and got them into shape. Every one of them sprang to attention when your ol’ Mighty Lou spoke!

Mighty Lou spends time with his friend Jeff

 

I found time to have a quiet moment with an old friend. ​Jeff was always there for me in my Cat Depot days. We have a special bond and were happy to reconnect and talk guy stuff.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou meets Ruggles

 

 

I was all set to head over to the starting line when I got stopped by another fan. ​This is Ruggles. We had a nice little stare down but neither of us meant anything. He’s cool.

 

 

Mighty Lou at PawPurr's Walk

 

 

Then the walk was beginning. Your mom made sure you went with us. Thanks for going, Dude. We all made it around the whole track.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou learns to skateboard

 

 

After a successful walk, I deserved some alone time. But that was quickly thwarted by some teenagers. However………..I rather enjoyed this distraction. They introduced me to a new pastime……..skateboarding!

​They marveled at my steadiness and uncanny ability. Ahhh, I have gained the admiration of the youth!

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou relaxes after PawPurr's Walk

 

 

All in all, it was one very tiring day, my friend. The reward at the end was to come home, drop into my bed and find a gift from you. ​Thanks Dude! I love it. Great ending to my day.

 

Until next time. I am…

​Rolling onto the next adventure.

Mighty Lou at Jingle Paws Jubilee and PawPurr’s Walk

Hi Whitey,

Yes I’m writing you mid-week but I’m all excited about this weekend.

Sunday, December 7th is the big Jingle Paws Jubilee event!

Bigger news than that is Cat Depot’s 1st PawPurr’s Walk featuring none other than…………

Mighty Lou has his walking shoes ready for PawPurr's Walk

 

My cape is flying high over this one! People can come from 11 a.m. to noon and walk with or without their dog – I know, but it is a dog event.

Registration begins at 10 a.m. If they walk, they get a goodie bag and a t-shirt! And guess what the best part is? It’s only $20 to go on the walk and all of the money goes to help our feline friends at Cat Depot!

 

 

Yes, sir, I’m in………….

Mighty Lou at Payne Park

 

 

I’m already waiting at the starting line here in Payne Park. Got my walking shoes ready. I’m small, but I’m mighty.

I know you have been working to get sponsors for the walk. Good going. Think of it, for only $20 people can get great exercise and help cats!

Besides the walk, Jingle Paws Jubilee offers lots of pet-related vendors, food, music and fun! Dogs are welcome even if they are not walking.

 

Mighty Lou and his walking shoes

 

Ol’ Mighty Lou loves a good party and this one is going to be huge!

I’ve got a job at the registration table. Everyone who registers to walk gets to meet me in purrson. That alone should bring in a crowd!

So keep working on those sponsors for the walk. Keep telling people to go to www.catdepot.org for information on the walk and the event.

They can also go to www.jinglepawsjubilee.com and see great pictures, maps and lots of information.

Remember to tell people there will be several shelter groups there with adoptable dogs and cats wanting a home for Christmas. And there will be a lot of vendors selling pet-related things for pet owners and friends of pet owners. Purrfect Christmas shopping event!

Mighty Lou can't wait for PawaPurr's Walk on Sunday December 7, 2014

 

Payne Park is in Sarasota on Route 301 four blocks South of Fruitville Road. I found it so it’s easy to get to. The time is 11 am – 5 pm. It’s a free event for the whole family!

Mighty Lou’s Shopping Weekend

Hey Whitey,

So have you heard about Black Friday? And have you heard about all of the craziness that’s going along with it? Humans get themselves worked up about some of the craziest things. But I do love events so I actually went out there myself.

Mighty Lou Checks out the food aisle

 


Of course I headed right for the food aisle. Checking prices gets tiring though. There’s so much to read.

 

 

 

MightyLouCheckout

 

​I got a couple of things and gave the store guy a thrill. This is one of those “big box” stores and it was crowded.

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou at his favorite small store

 

I chose to go on over to my favorite small business since it was Small Business Saturday. ​Over here I get a lot more opportunity to be mighty and go wherever I want.

 

 
Mighty Lou gets treats

 

 

They’ve got good treats over here.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Noses Around his Favorite Store

 

 

​There are so many things to check out.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou isn't picky about his treats

 

So many of the things they have are for dogs. But I’m not proud. If it tastes good, I’m for it.

I like to sit up here on the counter and let the dogs on the floor watch me eat their food. The pool of drool grows and I like irritating them.

 

I did have to pick up one item of importance though. There was an unfortunate incident in my carrier last week. One of my sisters had to go to the vet and she used it. Let’s just say her body was empty when the got there but the carrier was full. Mighty Lou will not use soiled merchandise. I am a caped crusader who needs proper equipment.

Mighty Lou gets a new carrier

 

​So I got a nice new carrier. It’s purple to match my carriage. No girls allowed in this one!

 

 

 

All in all it was a good trip. Miss Nancy who owns the store, Cats n’ Dogs, donated 500 items for the goodie bags we’re giving away at next weekend’s PawPurr’s Walk Event. She also gave me several items for the raffle.

 

Mighty Lou is ready for the First PawPurr's Walk on December 7, 2014

 

It’s going to be such an exciting event I plan on writing a mid-week blog so watch for that. In the meantime, keep promoting Jingle Paws and PawPurr’s Walk on December 7th at Payne Park. Huge, exciting and benefitting animals in need! My cape is flying high for this event, Dude!

Tell everyone to get their walking shoes on and get over to Payne Park next Sunday. I’ll be there. What more do they need?? Registration is just $20 and benefits Cat Depot Cats.

Happy Week, My Friend!

Dear Whitey,

Guess where I am? You will never guess. I’ll just have to tell you.

Mighty Lou at WENG Radio in Englewood

 

I’m over here at WENG Radio in Englewood waiting to go on the air. The radio station asked for your Ol’ Mighty Lou to help the humans again. We are going on to talk about Jingle Paws which is coming up on December 7th. That’s the big event put on by my friend Candace of Sarasota Pet Magazine.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou on the cover of Sarasota Pet Magazine

 

 

Of course you know her and remember that ever-famous cover….

She’ll be talking about the event and all the great things going on. Miss Lynn from Cat Depot will be there, too, and she’ll be talking about PawPurr’s Walk. That’s the portion of the day sponsored by Cat Depot for the benefit of our kitty friends there. A wonderful portion of the event.

 

 

 

 

 
Mighty Lou has his walking shoes ready for PawPurr's Walk on December 7, 2014

 

​I’ve got my walking shoes ready and sponsors signed up to donate in my name.

I know you have been working hard and have sponsors, too.

Great work, Dude!

 

Mighty Lou on the Air

 

 

So tell everyone you know to tune into WENG Radio on Monday morning. The time of the show is 9 AM EST. The radio station is 1530 AM and 107.5 FM.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou on WENG Radio Englewood

 

Listen for me. ​I’ll give you a special Mighty Lou shout out!

Have a good week, my friend.

​Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Mighty Lou,

I can hardly wait until tomorrow morning to hear you on the radio! I have been telling everyone I know to listen in.

I have had quite a week. This friendraiser stuff is fun, but tiring! I walked my little paws off trying to get as many sponsors as I can. I’m up to 18 now! My Mom agreed to walk 1 mile for each one, so she is going to be exhausted! She said she will walk the week before PawPurr’s Walk cause she will be working registration with your Mom. This event is going to be BIG for Cat Depot! I heard they are also going to try to find “forever” home for 100 cats and kittens. Isn’t that awesome, dude?

Whitey Wobbles in his tux for Mighty Lou's Wedding

 

Hey, I want you to see my new tux…it’s for your upcoming wedding to Lily. My Mom calls it a harness, but with my bowtie, it’s a tux  Get a good night’s sleep tonight and don’t forget to give me a shout out!

Your bud,
Whitey

 

 

 

 

Hey Mighty Lou…it’s me again!

Jake and Cody

 

I forgot to send this picture of my friend’s Jake & Cody. They are both Cat Depot cats who found their forever home about 5 yrs. ago. They are both sponsoring me for the PawPurr’s walk.

Notice the blankets they are sleeping on. Ms. Peggy taught my Mom how to make them so she made them for Jake and Cody! These guys are really cool and they really are brothers. Pretty nice that they were adopted together, don’t you think? Their Mom & Dad continue to support Cat Depot because they learned how awesome it is!

Well, that’s it for this week.

Mighty Lou’s Working Weekend

Hi Whitey,

I’m up early getting ready for another day of work. There is a two-day cat show in Fort Myers and I’m there both days wowing the crowd.

Mighty Lou Front and Center

 

The middle of the table always seems like the right place for me. After all, I am the best work my mom does!

There I was, minding my own business and waiting for the public to enter. Just then, a lady I don’t know came up and was asking my mom something. Next thing I know, this happened…..

 

Mighty Lou with a harness

 

They dared to take my cape off and put this thing on me! I do not like this sissy thing. And it’s disrespectful of the cape!

Then it got worse.

 

 

 
Mighty Lou on a Leash??

 

The lady put a leash on me! A leash? Is she kidding? Mighty Lou cannot be leashed! Turns out the lady is a vendor and sells these items. Not to me, she doesn’t! She wanted me to be her model for the day. No way!

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou re-dons his cape

 

 

My cape went back on and I took my rightful place next to the Cat Depot collection box. My purpose for being at the show was to promote special needs cats and help Cat Depot. That, my dear sir, is a dignified job.

What happened next was exciting.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou and his adoring fans

 

 

I was missing my Lily because she’s usually at this show but she had to be somewhere else. Two people came running across the room shouting “It’s Mighty Lou!!” And there they came, just wanting to touch the great Mighty Lou and let my mightiness rub off on them. They were talking all about the pending wedding and how they follow Lily and me.

Awwwwww, shucks.

It was a really busy day.

 

 

Mighty Lou keeps an eye on the cash box

 

Towards the end of the day, I checked the money box as I usually do. ​It is full. Time to turn this one in and get an empty box to get back out there. No time this weekend though, I’ll have to do some cramming because I expect another crowd on Day Two.

Whew.  I was tired at the end of the long day.

 

 

Mighty Lou rests on his mom's arm

 

On the ride home, I needed the comfort of my mom’s hand. She had to drive home with one arm, but that’s OK, I needed her.

Back to work today, Dude! Have a good one.

You GO Mighty Lou! 

Whitey Wobbles

 

The hard work you and I are doing is well worth it. There are so many of our feline friends in need. We need to work every waking hour to raise money and awareness for them.

My Mom volunteered at Cat Depot yesterday and she told me about the great work they are doing with the spay and neuter clinic. That is only one little thing that needs to be done. The list is very long of needs, as we know.

I have been working my cute little butt off trying to get more sponsors for the PawPurr’s walk on December 7th. I’m up to 12 and guess who number 12 is……drum roll…Miss Shelley! Yep. Even though she spends most of her time and efforts on Cat Depot, she still sponsored the Caped Whitey Wobbles!

Well, I am headed out to visit some new neighbors and try to get sponsors. You go to Fort Myers now and wow those crowds with your awesomeness!

Over and out for this week,
Whitey Wobbles

Mighty Lou’s Life-Changing Event

Dear Whitey,

Look into Mighty Lou's Eyes

 

 

Now onto your hat, Dude! This is going to blow your mind. Look into my eyes. Deep into my eyes……..Pay close attention to what I’m about to say. You don’t want to miss this.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou's Girlfriend Lily

 

 

You know my girlfriend, Lily. The one who captured my heart and stole my cape. ​Yep. That’s her. My little cutie.

So here it comes……………get ready……………

 

 

 
Mighty Lou is ready to propose to Lily

 

 

​I decided to pop the question! I have been stowing away my treat money and finally got enough to buy her this big rock. (I’m not making eye contact with you right now because I’m a little shy about this venture).

I know she’s the one for me and I have to have her. Don’t think of me as weak. Just think of me as a Caped Crusader with a heart that’s aching for my Lily.

 

 

Mighty Lou asks for Lily's Paw in Marriage

 

 

Ol’ Mighty Lou is a proper gentleman so I did the right thing. I went right up to her Mum and asked for her paw in marriage. ​Her Mum is real protective of her but I used my Mighty Lou charm. She could not resist and gave her approval.

 

 

 

 

 

Lily Accepts the Ring from Mighty Lou and Says "Yes!"

 

 

 

The big moment came and I gave my sweetie the ring. ​Look at her! Isn’t she just the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?? And look at her holding onto that ring for dear life. She isn’t going to let her Mighty Lou get away! Ha!

So my friend, what do you think? Did you ever think you would be hearing news this big from your caped friend? I wanted you to be the first to know. We’ll be making our announcement public now and the big day will be very soon. Of course you will be my Best Man.

 

 

 

\

How’s that news for knocking your socks off?? I’ve got to go start making plans now.

Mighty Lou is a Man (cat) in Love!

 

Later, Dude!

​Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader and man in love

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whitey Wobbles’ Reaction

OMG Mighty Lou!

I had no idea you were so serious about Lily. I do understand…she is quite adorable if I must say so myself. Please make sure about this. It is a life-changing event. I will be honored to be your best Caped Cat at the ceremony. You said Best Man, but I know you meant best cat. Your mind is all jumbled with this silly love bug.

I sure hope you can maintain your strong Caped Crusader image after you marry Lily. Remember our mission is to help our friends at Cat Depot find forever homes.  Maybe Lily can work for us.

Well, Dude, you did blow my mind and my head is still spinning with this news. I will work on getting a proper Cape and bowtie for the wedding.

Oh, I have some really awesome news. Since June 1st, 14 cats over 8 years old have found their forever homes! Isn’t that cool, Dude?? My Mom keeps telling me to get a job, since I pledged $10 for every cat adopted over 8. She doesn’t know about my secret stash! I hope a bunch more get adopted before the end of the year.

Whitey Wobbles

 

See you later, you crazy, love struck Dude!

Mighty Lou’s Redecorating Project

Hi Whitey,

It’s a busy place over here this weekend. There is some redecorating going on. The humans need help and I’m there!

Mighty Lou is Ready to Paint

 

 

I’ve got no problems with heights so the ladder is fun. I’ve got the paint, roller, brush and rag.

 

And most importantly…….

 

 

 

Mighty Lou has his painting cape on

 

 

 

I’ve got my painting cape on.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Hangs on to the ladder

 

 

 

The first thing you have to do is read the directions. I don’t have my glasses on so I have to look really close. I’m without glasses because I don’t want to get down from this ladder and have to get back up. You see how I hold on to the ladder with my right paw for safety?

 

 

 

Mighty Lou gets ready to use tools

 

 

 

Sometimes you have to do other things besides paint. You have to use tools. Very manly, don’t you think? But you know what, Whitey?

This whole project is just a little beneath a Caped Crusader, don’t you think? Don’t you agree those humans should be able to do their own projects and let me do more important things? Time to call them back to the job.

 

 

Mighty Lou wants off the ladder!

 

 

 

In my loudest Mighty Lou voice I called “HELP!” They came running because they thought I fell off the ladder. Now I ask you, would a Caped Crusader fall? Of course not. But I did want to get down. I was over this project. It was time for some Mighty Lou time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou takes a nap in the sun

 

 

Time for a short nap in the sun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou has his peeps supervise the humans

 

I assigned someone else to watch those humans while I was busy napping. We always have to have a pair of feline eyes watching those humans. I have “peeps.”

 

 

 

Now I have a purrsonal question before I let you go, Dude……

 

Mighty Lou asks if his cape makes his butt look big

 

 

Does this cape make my butt look fat? Ha ha ha!

Until next week, my friend.

Mighty Lou Gets Stoned

Hi Whitey,

How’s your week going?  Mine was going fine and then I got stoned. No, no, Dude. Don’t go there. I’ll tell you what I mean.

You know I like to get out and meet new people. Parks are nice places to meet people. So I visited a nice little park I had never gone to yet.

Mighty Lou Meets a Nice Guy

 

 

Right off the bat I met a nice guy. He was very quiet and very still. At first I thought he didn’t like your old Mighty Lou. Then I realized ‘that’s not possible!’ It was something else that had him sitting so still.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Spots Danger

 

 

 

Being the investigative kind, I saw the problem right away. There was danger lurking under the bench. My new friend was frozen in fear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou confronts the alligator

 

 

The Caped Crusader jumped into action and faced danger square in the face. No ugly alligator is going to scare my new friend. I think I put that gator in a trance. He didn’t move a muscle from then on. Hah!

On to meet other new people.

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou finds a new statue

 

 

This nice family seemed to be very close. They were holding bowls so I sensed maybe a meal was in the offering? They were antisocial though and didn’t even look at me. So much for thinking they were nice.

Mighty Lou is starting to catch on here. There seems to be a theme going on with all the folks in this park. If they don’t respond to me, it has to be them. Am I right? They’re just not normal.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou and Fish Statue

 

 

I sensed there was something fishy going on in this park. Fishy indeed. And it stunk!

Now I know why none of the people in this park were going crazy over me. They were all stoned, or should I say stone.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou is not amused

 

 

Mighty Lou is not amused. I will not be mocked by stoned humans! I will not be back to this park.

Later, Dude.
