This was a most exciting weekend at Cat Scouts. Sammy’s Travel Service planned a great trip to the Grand Canyon. What a beautiful place. Mom is super jealous as she’s never been there. We did lots of fun things, but the most exciting for me was being inducted into the Order of the Arrowhead in recognition for my service to Cat Scouts. Making that honor even better was the fact that five of my friends, including four patrol mates, were inducted as well. Wolverines Gracie, Andy, Charles (Lisbeth’s boyfriend), Allie (my beautiful girlfriend) and I, are now members of the Order of the Arrowhead. Raz, Allie’s brother, was the other Scout inducted. We join Sammy and Nibbler who were the first inductees. We are all members of the Worldwide Wildcats Troop.
The initiation was the tough part. We each had to spend the night alone in the Grand Canyon and survive using our Cat Scout skills. We had our official cat scout compass and just a few other items. The guys had only a loincloth to wear. The ladies got Wilma Flintstone-type dresses. Not the best look for any of us.
I’ve put together a slideshow with just a few highlights from the trip and my night in the wilderness. (I’d like to thank Gracie for the first three photographs.) NOTE: In order to read the captions, make certain your cursor is not on the photographs.
If you’re not a Cat Scout, what are you waiting for? There’s so much to do and learn. And so many friends to be made.
Purrs and Paw-pats, Cat Scout Mauricio
Congrats Mau, that is awesome…you are a brave Mancat…that is quite the loin cloth!
It was a great trip but Allie and Raz are really happy they made it through the Order of the Arrowhead induction! Whew…that was rough!!
The Florida Furkids with special love and smoochies to Mau
ps – we got your package yesterday. Mom will let us open it tomorrow after Dad’s doctor’s appointments.
ConCATS, Mau!!! Sampson, and all of us, are so excited for and proud of you. You and all of the other inductees are very deserving. Sampson is disappointed that he missed the ceremony, but he wants you to know that he was there in spirit.
He also sends 2948752340957 kisses to Astrid, and love and hugs from all of us!
That was a hard badge to earn…wait an order that is difficult to get inducted into:))
Wow! Concatulations Mau! That’s a pawesome accomplishment!
That was quite the adventure, Mau. Congrats on making it through the night and being inducted into the Order of the Arrowhead. Maybe one day I’ll be inducted too. ~Wally
Concats on your induction Mau!
Way to go, Mau! Order of the Arrowhead is quite the accomplishment, and we are all so proud of you. 🙂
Congratulations on the Order of the Arrowhead! Looks like you had a great time 🙂
Very proud of you Mau………we are a dynamic duo guiding the Wildcats – both in the Order of the Arrowhead and having the time of our lives! It was a great trip and you have a lot of great photos as souvenirs.
Hugs (and Salutes), Sammy
Dudes you all look fabulous on that group shot.
WOW! Congrats on the Order of the Arrowhead!!!
Mau you have our respect!!!! Well done.
My Sammy and I both congratulate you on surviving the night by yourself- great job becoming a member of the order of the Arrow. Nice photos.
Oh WOW! Mau, (MOL I’m a poet!) I am so impressed. Well done indeed to you all!. I am a bit ashamed because Mum’s not let me go to scouts recently – she says there is human stuff she has to deal with!!! – But I am submitting my complaint in triplicate to NUCAT so they can commence negotiations with the authorities!! xoxox
Hmm Where did my comment go ??
and my hopeless mom-person worked the whole weekend so I couldn´t join in on this fun Scout event either 🙁
Concatulations on your Order of the Arrow!!! Looks like you had a great time in the Grand Canyon!
