For my birthday Mom joined me up with Cat Scouts. She’s hoping I will make friends with other kitties who are more well-mannered than I, don’t treat their meowmates so mean and can convince me that good scouts DO NOT spray. Good luck with that one.

Here I am in my Cat Scout uniform.You may have noticed this pix in our sidebar shortly after my birthday. I do look rather dashing, don’t you lady-cats agree?

As a recently turned nine-year-old kitty, I am not as active as I once was, and I haven’t noticed any merit badges being offered in napping. Maybe I can suggest that. I have, however, already earned four merit badges.

The first was the Bunnykicking Merit Badge. I used my sister, Calista Jo’s, knitted, catnip mouse that she received for her birthday to demonstrate my fierce skills. Human arms are the best for bunnykicking, but my humans are too savvy to allow that!

The second was the Tree Climbing Merit Badge. I earned this by climbing the dogwood tree next to the house. This is a great place to climb as I can access the tin, porch roof and make lots of noise by running back and forth. It’s also a great place for staring at the humans through the second-floor windows. MOL!

Group logo of Merit Badge: Tree ClimbingI also have my Friendship and Computer Technology Merit Badges and my Be Purrpared Ribbon. And I have made 14 friends already, including Wally from The Island Cats and Brian from Brian’s Home. I am currently number 13 on the Merit Badge and Award Leader Board; however, that was prior to earning my latest merit badge.

As I now have my Computer Technology Merit Badge, I am going to help Mom set up a dedicated Cat Scout page  on our blog where I can register and keep track of my friends and accomplishments.

I really hope others of you…hint: Spitty, Sammy, Maxwell, Faraday, Austin (just to name a few) will join me in Cat Scouts.

Purrs and hugs, Mauricio, Tenderpaw

Please don’t be offended Mauricio, but when I first saw that picture of you in uniform, I thought you looked like a Hitler cat. Have you ever been to that website with all those cats that look like him? Anyway, concats on all your badges.

You are quite an accomplished cat scout and it’s an admirable endeavor.

Spitty the Kitty September 30, 2013 at 10:58 pm

Hmmmmmm, I am intrigued. Particularly since I see there may be LadyCats involved. We don’t know nuffing about this (where did you get all your cool badges??? And your dashing outfit????)! I think *I* need to be a Cat Scout too!

Mauricio, along with the ones you get when you join, I have two merit badges so far…Bird Study and Basketry. I’ve also applied for my Mammal Study and Tent Camping badges, but I haven’t received confirmation yet that I passed. I got to get working on some of the other badges, but there are some things I’m really good at, like napping and hanging out, that there’s no badges for…yet! I look forward to all the fun we’re gonna have in Cat Scouts!
