T’was the night before the night before last! Cat Scouts was having its fall purmotions ceremony. I was not being purrmoted as I already have the highest rank of Sabertooth Tiger and have earned the Order of the Arrowhead. I always attend the ceremony, however, to support my fellow Scouts.
At the conclusion of the rank purrmotions, Denmaster called my Patrol Leader from Wolverines, Gracie, and me to come forward. I can’t deny that my paw pads were sweating and my furs quivering. I had no idea what was happening and feared I might tinkle on myself. Gracie was just as nervous.
Had we been hooligans and disgraced ourselves in some way and were being booted out of Scouts? We had absolutely no idea.
Then to my shock, Gracie and I each were named Cat Scout of the Year. Me, Scout Mau…really? I was pretty positive that Gracie would be named CSOTY for 2015, but I never expected to be. CSOTY is usually not announced until New Year’s Eve so this made it even more of a surprise.
No, I didn’t get a new Cardboard Derby car, a huge pile of green papers or a case of stinky goodness, so don’t bother to put your paws out. What I did get was this super great trophy. I think it might be solid gold! Mom’s hoping it’s dark chocolate covered with gold foil. MOL!
So what’s next for Scout Mau? I’ll be continuing to run my Bake Shop, serve as the Director of Campus Security at Cat Scout University as well as take fun trips, earn merit badges and participate in service projects. This Cat Scout likes to keep busy.
There’s always something happening at Cat Scouts with lots of opportunities to help others and grow as a cat and member of society. If you’d like more information about becoming a member, contact me or click on the link in the fist paragraph.
And finally, I’d like to concatulate all the Scouts who received purrmotions, especially my friend, Patrol Leader and fellow Cat Scout of the Year, Gracie.
Purrs, paw-pats and a salute, Cat Scout Mau
Hats off to Maurico! He is a natural born leader and adorable to boot!

WOW! A huge conCATulations, Mauricio!!! We are so excited for you and of course think that you more than deserve it. Sampson is so very sorry that he missed the ceremony, and frankly that he has missed out on so many things over at Scouts. His poor excuse for a mom just has too much on her plate to be able to get him over there. However, Sampy is so very proud to call you his furiend and “brofur.” We all are sending big hugs and paw pats, my furiend. Sampy sends extra special kisses to his beautiful Astrid as well. Love and hugs from all of us!!
Mau, I know for a fact that you and Gracie both deserve this honour! So HUGE CONCATS to you both!! You put me to shame!! *salutes*
