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:
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!
You Cat Scouts really get around! Now, Zzzzzzz…
Congrats on making it to the Order of the Arrowhead, Mau. You better rest up for your night in the wilderness. 🙂
Congrats! You are an amazing Scout!
Sabertooth Tiger, how pawesome! Concatulations!
Wow Mauricio! That is quite an honor. I hope you do well on your survival test. You seem like a pretty skilled kitty, so I think you will do great. I will be rooting for you!
You look so comfy Mau. I need to join you. Too much partying I feel.
We are so proud of you! And you know, sometimes especially Sabertooth Cat Scouts need to nap! Hugs!
Wowwzers! Concatulations to yous guys achieving such a honor! And mes sure your overnight will go fine.
Concats to all those who got purrmoted. Enjoy your well-deserved nap.
Concats! Yes you deserve a 16-hour nap for 3 straight days!
Concatulations! You certainly do deserve a doozy of a snoozy!
A big concats on your achievement of Sabertooth! That is pawsome. You save your strength for your upcoming test of endurance in the wilderness! (It almost sounds like the TV show Naked and Afraid!)
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 🙂
It’s good that you’re resting up. It sounds like you have quite a challenge ahead! 🙂
sleeping on mom or dad is the best ever cuz they keep us so nice and warm.
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
Those Cat Scouts really keep you busy!
Sounds like you had grreat FUN at the Cat Scouts , Mau !
ConCATulations to Allie for being a Sabertooth Tiger !
We love to nap on our human and when we do at least we know what she’s up to!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Concatulations! Sounds like fun!!1
I join you on the nap, Sabertooth Cat 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 <3
Nothing like a cat in deep asleep to inspire calm feelings . . .
Warm humans are good to nap on.
Wow, no wonder you need to get some zzzzzz’s! And to recharge for the great catventures to come:))
