Second Cat Scouts’ Cardwood Derby

cardwood derby  trophyMau has entered the second, sort-of-annual Cat Scouts‘ Cardwood Derby, and he needs your votes to win this super cool trophy. It would have his name and not Scout Banzai should he win.

As Mauricio is Director of Campus Security at Cat Scouts University he thought it would be nice to have an official campus vehicle. Here are a few photos of Mau, his car and his pit crew. We’ll tell you how to vote at the end of this post.

Mau’s pit crew, Calista Jo and Lisbeth, were stoned on catnip and acting like hooligans. (The arrows point to the nip.)

I am pretty happy with my improved design and construction skills in comparison to Mau’s last derby car. If you weren’t following us then, here’s a photo. It was more elaborate, but the craftsmanship was definitely lacking.

Though Mau’s car is better constructed this year, I fear he has no chance of taking home that trophy. The competition is really tough. Scouts were able to create any type of vehicle they wanted, and some are more imaginative than his. There’s a hot air balloon, a food truck and a stagecoach to name a few of the unique entries.

If you would like to vote for Mauricio, you can do so on the Cat Scouts Organization page on Facebook. He has two photos. Scroll down until you find them and then “LIKE” them. You have through January 22 to cast your vote. While you are there check out all the entries. They really are creative.

Mau says, “Please drive safely and never while stoned on catnip!”

I love it Mau. The sturdiness seems improved since the last time. Our sturdiness improved. Last car I ate my way through the frame of the window. hehe Well, it was my car.

That is a totally pawsome Cardwood Derby car! Very creative. I suppose there is nothing wrong with having a little nip around for the pit crew. 🙂 Excellent job!

I love your campus security car, Mauricio! And I love that you even shared a shot of you in action, chasing after those nip-stoned hooligans. You sure make a purrfect security guard! Purrs!

I had a great time on the FB scouts page watching the amazing “vehicles”. Now I want to make one! But I scrolled and scrolled and couldn’t find yours. Maybe not enough coffee for me this morning. Is it possible to post a direct link?
