Arrival Story: We were driving down a busy street at night and thought we saw an opposum crossing the street. We quickly realized it was a kitten. It took two days to catch him because he was a fast runner and good hider. We finally captured him sitting in the middle of a bush.
Bio: We originally thought Newman was a girl. After the first vet visit, she was revealed to be a he! He is named after two Newmans - his "rescuer" thinks his beautiful blue eyes remind her of Paul Newman. The "driver" says he thinks he will be saying "Newman" alot like Jerry did to Newman, the mail carrier, on the Seinfeld television show!
Hey, pals! What's happenin'? I thought I'd tell you what I've been up to lately.
The MRS. and the DD were talking awhile back about when they were in scouts. My DD was an Eagle Scout. He doesn't have a pooping eagle on his chest like Pansy does, but he got a cool badge. My MRS. was a Girl Scout when she was little, and then when she grew up, she became a Girl Scout leader.
I started wondering why I couldn't be a Cat Scout, and then guess what, I found out that I could be a Cat Scout!
I saw a link to the Cat Scouts over on Skeezix's blog, and so I joined! Inky and Gleek joined too. Skeezix was the very first Cat Scout, and his little brother, Buckaroo Bonzai, is in charge of the place now that Skeezix has gone to the bridge to start the Angel Troop!
The neat thing about being a Cat Scout is that you earn merit badges. There are lots of fun merit badges and all you have to do to earn one is post a picture in the badge group. I've earned these badges: Basketry, Automotive Expertise, Bird Study, Bunnykicking, Friendship, Dentistry, Mammal Study, Journalism, The Bitey, and Tree Climbing.
There are advanced badges too like Swimming. I'm still working on my Reptile Study badge. I almost got kicked out the Cat Scouts because I thought a centipede was a reptile. Luckily, they didn't say anything cause I'm only 5. I need to study harder to earn that badge!
Girls can join too, but they are required to sell stuff on the street corner! MOL!
So, if you want to have some fun, stop over at the Cat Scouts and check it out! Tell them Newman sent you cause I get points for pals that join. The points don't get you anything except higher up on the Leader board!
Thursday is my birthday. I'll be five years old. I'm kind of bummed because the MRS. isn't going to be here to celebrate with me. I won't have a left arm to suck!
She is going to the happiest place on earth! I thought being home with me was the happiest place on earth! She is going to help chaperone four girls. She told me they have huge mice at this place - one is named Mickey and one is named Minnie! It sounds like a perfect place for a cat!
So, I'm going to have to party with my DD and my brothers. I might even let Samoa party with me too! If you cats want to stop by, be sure to come to the back door. The DD will be in his study at the front of the house. He won't even notice that we're having a party in the kitchen!
