I got up just to send you this letter but I’m going back to bed as soon as I finish. Yesterday was a very busy day. My mom had a big art show at the Sarasota Garden Club. My job was to be at her table with her art and sell it for a donation in any amount to Cat Depot’s Friends Like Me Fund.
People were everywhere but of course your ol’ Mighty Lou was the hit of the day! One of my first visitors was an old friend from Cat Depot who came bearing gifts.
It was a really pretty box and smelled good. Inside were some great treats but she said I had to share when I got home. I figured I get all of the attention so I can throw my brother and sisters a morsel once in a while.
She got a big ol’ Mighty Lou kiss for the thought!
Some other people were just meeting me for the first time but I captivated them right away.
She didn’t bring me treats so I moved on.
The gardens were beautiful so I took a little stroll(er). Ah, the fragrance!
Some artists were painting in the garden. It’s called plein aire so I decided to go check them out. Quite interesting. They enjoyed the day painting but they particularly enjoyed me.
(Yes, I’m capeless. Don’t judge me!)
I met another friend in the garden. She said I have her heart so she brought me one.
She also brought me treats, too.
I got to sit in on a nice floral design demonstration. Again, quite interesting, but you need thumbs to do it so that’s not a good career choice for a cat.
Guess who I got to see close to the end of the day?
Your mom!! She came just to say hi to me and get a painting to make a donation to Cat Depot. I missed you but I know you were home protecting your property and keeping your brother and sister in line. Next time, Dude.
All in all the day for me was about making money for the Friends Like Me Fund. People were very generous to Cat Depot. They were all interested in my story and stopped by to see me, pet me and find out about me. I got pretty tired by the end of the day but that money was piling up and I was in charge of it.
So I wrapped my Mighty Lou tail over it for protection. Everyone knows they don’t touch Mighty Lou’s tail. If they do, they will get bit, count on it.
So protection enforced, I am,
