It was a big week for this little guy……I went national!
There is a radio show all about animals and they invited me to be on it. It was kind of scary but I said yes because I have an important message to deliver.
My lady bug helped give me courage. She’s always smiling so she makes me happy. I wore my lady bug tie to match her. But, I was so nervous about the show I got the tie on wrong. All of my lady bugs were flying upside down. Uh oh. Better check in the mirror next time.
My mom took me into the sound booth. At first it seemed so big and so scary. But then I remembered I was there to deliver a message for all cats. I had to go on there and tell everyone hoarding is very, very bad and not to do it.
So on behalf of all cats who have had a terrible experience like me, as soon as they said “who wants to talk?”
I raised my hand and shouted out “I’ll go first!” (Of course I was speaking cat, so no humans understood.) I got really brave when I remembered it is my job to speak for those who can’t speak.
I got right up there to that microphone and said “Do not have more cats than you can care for.” We suffer so much when people have so many cats they can’t provide proper care. You better know I told them everything that happens to us in that environment.
This was my opportunity to speak and I took it. My message was heard! People started asking questions and showing concern. So many of them just didn’t know and don’t understand. But I’m here now, I’ve found my voice, I’ve found my forum and I will work hard. Bow-Tie to the rescue!
It was tiring though. The stress of it all wore me out. My message was out there and my work was complete.
It was nice to curl up with my lady bug and know I did my job. People know a little more now about hoarding and about how to care for us. Sleep came easy to this young radio star.
See you next week.
