I’m a bit late on my blog today. I like to get it finished in the morning but I’m just getting to it now. Before you judge me on being late, let me tell you why I’m just now getting to it.
My mom had a booth at a pet expo today and I went with her. That might have been a mistake on my part. I thought I was just going to help her sell paintings and greet my adoring public but she had something up her sleeve.
At first everything seemed to be going as usual. It was a Howl-O-Ween party for dogs so I wore a new cape. It’s a nice giraffe pattern that I thought would complement my coloring and speak to the season. Everyone was coming up to the booth commenting on how well behaved I am and what a nice cape I was wearing. We were passing out flyers with my story and a painting of me in my regular cape on it so they understood the deal with the cape.
There were dogs everywhere. Some of them smelled me and I let them do it. If any of them over stayed their welcome though I gave them a Mighty Lou swat. And then it happened….
This lady came up with a goofy little dog in a stroller. She said she was so happy to see a cat wearing a cape and that she had something to show me. I thought maybe she had a copy of Sarasota Pet Magazine with me on the cover and she wanted an autograph.
Oh no, that wasn’t it. She picked that goofy dog up out of that stroller and showed me what she had…
A dog in a super hero cape!! I was horrified! How dare she and how dare that goofy dog! It was a costume party but this was just too much.
It was time for Mighty Lou to put my costume on and scare them all.
Mighty Lion Lou!! I was on the prowl now. No dogs better get in my way!! I decided to enter the costume contest and blow those dogs away!
I took a seat in the audience to wait for my name to be called to come up on stage. The stupid dogs all had to sit on the floor on leashes. Mighty Lion Lou got a soft seat.
When my name was called Mom went up with me. I strolled that cat walk better than any dog every did. I was swinging that big tail and giving a nice mighty roar.
When my walk was over I went back and had a seat in the audience. Mom and I discussed how well I did and we watched the stupid dogs strut their stuff. When the awards were given, there was a special award for Mighty Lion Lou. I got the special award because I was the best…….and of course the only cat.
We were all proud. They were taking pet photos so I got my formal shot done.
So that, my friend, is why I was late with my blog and why I’m tired right now. It’s been a big day but I showed them all that “cats rule and dogs drool”!
You have a good week, my friend.
Mighty Lion Lou has left the building.
Roar Mighty Lou!
You never cease to amaze your admirers! Again, I am so proud of my Caped Buddy. You looked awesome in your lion get-up. When Harley read your blog, here is what he said…
He wanted to let you know that he can roar too!
My mom wants us all to dress up for Halloween. As soon as I heard that, I took off. Caped Whitey Wobbles does not like to wear anything other than his Cape!
I guess she caught poor Daisy and made her look like a pumpkin…Daisy was not happy! Better her than me.
Anyway, we have had a quiet week. Last night my Dad heard some noises outside, so Harley and I set out to find out what it was. It came from the side of the house, so we climbed up to the window and I had Harley hold it up for me.
Finally, we discovered it was just a bunch of frogs making loud croaking noise. We hissed a bit and they stopped! My mom was happy with our discovery, so she called us for treats! You don’t have to call Whitey twice for treats!
After the treats, we decided to call it a day and get some snooze time in. Harley is the best snuggle bunny ever! (Yes, I said “snuggle bunny.”)
Well, that’s my week in a nutshell. Not as exciting as yours, but I’m still looking for more “gigs” for the famous Mighty Lou!
Till next week,
Whitey Wobbles and crew
