The only thing this tuxie needs to have a great Doozy of a Snoozy is a warm human. In this case it’s Mom.




You might be wondering why I am so exhausted. The answer, of course, is Cat Scouts. On Saturday night, we had a purrmotion ceremony. I am already at the top rank (Sabertooth Tiger) and now so is my lovely girlfriend, Allie. In fact, only a few of the active members of our Wolverine Patrol are not. I know they will all achieve the Sabertooth rank in the future. They are hard workers and enthusiastic Scouts. (You can see my Sabertooth Tiger profile pix near the bottom of our sidebar.)

Even more exciting is that Allie and I as well as three other Wolverines (Andy, Charles [Lisbeth’s boyfriend] and Gracie), and Allie’s brofur Raz (Raz’s Rumblers) have been invited to join the Order of the Arrowhead. We are all members of the Worldwide Wildcats Troop.

The Order of the Arrowhead is an acknowledgement of exceptional leadership and demonstration of Cat Scout ideals. Those invited to join must successfully complete an overnight initiation to prove their worthiness for the honor. This involves spending a night in the wilderness wearing nothing but a loincloth. We will be given a match, an egg, a compass, and a blanket. We must survive using our Cat Scout skills.

We will receive this sash to wear when we survive our initiation:

sabertooth - order-of-the-arrowhead-sash


We do not know as yet when Denmaster will schedule our overnight in the wilderness. But I am going to make certain I am well rested when the time comes. I’ll let y’all know when that happens and whether or not I pass.

Purrs and paw-pats, Sabertooth Cat Scout Mauricio

WOW! Concatulations, Mauricio, and everyone! Sampson is still mad at me for missing the purrmotion ceremony. He doesn’t seem to agree that the wedding gig Dad and I had was more important, even though it is paying for his food for the next 4 months! Oh well… we will agree to disagree, and I hope to do a better job of getting Sampy to more Cat Scout events…
Sampy and all of us sure are proud to call Mauricio one of our very bestest furiends. He is very admirable!
Sampy also sends 203948572039487529345 kisses to Astrid, and love and hugs from all of us!

Congratulations to all the new Sabertooths, that is such an accomplishment. You are very brave to be ready for the next challenge, that is one my Sammy will never get to because he isn’t allowed to go anywhere overnight- especially not alone in the woods- even virtually 🙂

Sammy June 16, 2015 at 5:16 am

I will NEVER (!) forget my “night in the wilderness” but I’m sure you’ll be just fine Mau….you are an exceptional Scout and your Scouting skills and knowledge will come in handy and you’ll have that beautiful sash on your uniform before you know it!

Concatulations my friend!
Hugs (and salutes), Sammy
