Wow, what an honor for Mr. Mittens! We told him he was cat of the day and he was so bored to hear of it! His excitement was just so...underwhelming. All he can think about this time of the morning (circa 6:00AM) is me taking him back to the horse barn so he can check for mousies, smell around to see if an encroaching kitty invaded his territory overnight, and, of course his main job, supervise the feeding and cleaning of the horses.
Yesterday, we hung a couple of gates on a new corral we built just off the riding arena and he was there, sitting on one of the posts, supervising the operation. Nothing pleases Alex more than to have his peoples come out and do things with him when he is outside.
When Alex is outside, he is loving and demanding of attention. When he is inside...eh, not so much. He loves to be brushed, and that's okay, but petting? Don't bother. Mostly he plays with Rocky after eating then goes to bed.
Outside: Alex the Warrior Cat. Inside: 'Ol Mr. Stuffy Pants.

Congratulations in being Cat of the Day!! Whooo Hoo! I hope you have a fun day chasing mousies and find a nice sunbeam for your afternoon nap :) What kind of horses do you have? One of my horses is black and white like me :)
Almost time to snoopervise our moms at the barn, It is 6:30 and the sun is thinking about waking up.

We have three thoroughbreds, a breed stock paint and a gaited palomino paint. None of them are orange like Alex, though! Have a fun day and thanks for your comments!
