Mauricio is pea green with envy. His friend, Wally, from The Island Cats joined Cat Scouts well after Mauricio and has earned oodles more merit badges and even been named Cat Scout of the Week. And he is now in second place on The Cat Scout Points Leader Board.
I tried to explain to Mauricio that Wally is more motivated and industrious than he is. But, of course, Mauricio blames me. He says that since Wally is a year older than he is, he should not have the energy to be in the lead. Mauricio claims to have worked tirelessly toward his merit badges while his dad and I were away playing (his word) for ten days, but with no one to get the photographic evidence, Wally was able to surge ahead.
After meyowling at me, stamping his paws and giving me the stink-eye, I promised to help him as much as possible this week. He still left the room in a huff as I didn’t jump up immediately to assist him. I found him later doing what he does best. I also suspect this is exactly what he did the entire time we were away. Now you know why he continues to lobby for a Napping Merit Badge. After he got up from his nap, I did help him earn his Journalism Merit Badge so he’s a little less perturbed with me.
Awe, sorry Mauricio. 🙁
Ellie posted her award today on our bloggie! She says thank you again!!!
Raz is trying really hard to get more badges in Cat Scouts…it’s hard work but worth it!
The Florida Furkids
We would love to join scouts, but we are so busy 🙁 xxxx
Mauricio, I’m not sure green suits you. But you do look quite handsome on your green scratcher. I bet you’ll catch up on your badges soon.
C’mon guy you can do this – you can catch up. You are pawsome lad GO FOR IT.
Snap out of it Buddy! At least you *ARE* a Cat Scout!! My Human has not even helped me join yet. And what’s up with THAT, I’d like to know. By the time I join, all the good badges will be GONE or somefing. ::pout::
Mauricio don’t feel bad you will catch up. Sometimez hoomanz just insist on doing what they want to do, they just don’t listen to the catz. I hope your fitz and pouting worked and now your Mom is back to doing what you tell her to do.
At least your Mom blogs. We are really mad at our mom cause she duzzn’t even have a blog. We iz missin out on a lot of fun stuff bcuz we don’t have a blog. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)
Oh Mauricio, we don’t blame you for being po’d! There’s always the nose bitey…to motivate your Human!
Hey that sounds great. There’s even a bitey Merit Badge. Head-butts, Mauricio
We hope you’re able to get more merit badges Mauricio! Sometimes our help isn’t very helpful huh?
Mauricio I’m sure you will soon have the badges you deserve… Bisous Bailey
Ha! A napping badge…all my kitties need one of those. That’s one thing they are REALLY good at. Lucy gets bonus points because she could definitely earn a modelling badge! And if there is a sporting badge for running on walls, Tyler earns that one!!
Just wanted to let you know that an award is waiting for you on my bloggie =^.^=
I am sure that once you start cracking the whip at your Human that you will soon catch up.
Aw poor kitty! At least Wally is motivating you to catch up Mauricio!
Hey–don’t give up on me. I’ve been sick-ish and miserable but I am better now and I want to join up. The Human says if I keep feeling better I can join up this weekend unless it gets to be a million degrees again. Sigh. Don’t use up all the fun before I get there!
We’ve been hearing about cat scouts, but don’t know anything about it. It must be good if it can make you change color!
Mauricio, don’t feel bad. You can catch up for sure. I wanted to join the cat scout too but mom is sick again and always busy with work. Can you tell your mom to teach my mom how i can join the cat scout. Tell her to tell my mom that it’s not hard. She needs convincing.
Whoa! He’s totally green with envy.
BTW, TW sez there’s no way she’s photographing me eating my breakfast at 4 in the morning. MOL! She’s sabotaging my blog just like you’re messing up Mauricio’s Cat Scout career.
Okay. I am here!
Love Ragdoll Mommy~
There’s plenty of time to catch up, Mauricio!
Don’t feel bad Mauricio, you are still way ahead of me. I couldn’t even earn the UTI Badge!
Mauricio we know you are going to earn lots more badges!!!
Mauricio…it sounds as though your home “team” is a bit weak. Maybe if you replaced your secretary and photogrpher… you’d be a little ahead in the badge department. Just saying… :p
the critters in the cottage xo
That’s ok, Mauricio, the human isn’t helping me to get any badges either. She’s just lazy!!
Oh that reminds me we are joining up! I will soon be in the running for at least one badge… MOL we are a napping bunch here
We need to get started on our badges. Our Person is just so so slow. Congrats on your badges. Take care.
a merit badge for sleepin, snoozin N nappin wood bee rite up R allee even if an allee iz noe wear in site !!! best fishes two ewe dood 🙂
Mauricio, I better watch my back because I got a feeling you’re gonna pass me up on the leader board real soon! I’m with you on that napping badge. That’s one thing I’m really good at! And as for that age crack…it’s experience that earns the badges, my furiend. See you around the campfire. *saluting*
Maybe you can get lots of extra treats for pouting! WOoooowooooooo!
Hmm…Cat Scout? Sounds like we’re missing on some pawsome fun!
I am attempting a merit badge for napping today. Good luck. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
Go Mauricio! Put your human to work!
These cat scouts of ours are keeping us busy aren’t they??? Good grief! Like we have nothing else to do but help them earn their merit badges!!!! HAHAHA We saw that Wally’s a big “star” in the scouts but something tells me Sam will never be #1 there (unless of course they have a bacon eating competition…)
Happy Monday! It’s raining here (yay!)
Maybe Sam can lobby for that merit badge while Mauricio is lobbying for the napping one.
