And the Winner of the "Best Cat Dad" Contest is...
We have a winner in The Cat's Meow's Best Cat Dad Contest.
For the judging, I sent the entries (minus the names of the contestants) to 4 Cat Dads that I know as well as my husband (who is indeed, the best Cat Dad ever). I asked them to rank their top three choices.
The unanimous winner was Morgan the Pirate Gato. Morgan is a special needs cat, and his dad has had special needs of his own. Grab a hankie and read their story:
My Daddy is furry furry special, and we all love him very much.
My Dad was diagnosed with Cancer last August, and went for daily radiation and weekly Chemo. He was furry sick and weak through all of his treatments. He lost 40 pounds and was furry furry skinny.
Afterwards he developed bad bad side effects from the treatments and had to go for weekly, then biweekly endoscopies to fix his swallowing. He is still getting those done, and next week is Number 21. Happily he has gained weight back, and is on his way to being healthy again.
Daddy gave me shots every day, 2 times a day, even as week/sick as he was - I was very important. He made sure I got my 4 square meals a day, and ate them all. He even made them schedule his treatments around MY FEEDING schedules so Mom would not have to run back and forth from the hospital.
Mom offered to have me stay at the Kitty Spa - but Dad said NO WAY - hes MY LITTLE MAN and he stays here.
I am furry proud that he is my Daddy, and that he loves me and all my fursiblings so much.
He is the best Daddy on the Planet!!!!!
We love you Daddy!
