Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby Results
This is the happy portion of today’s post.
Our Cat Scouts, Mau and Cooper Murphy, are thrilled to report that they did quite well in this year’s Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby thanks to our readers and friends voting for them. No they did not take first place. For the second year in a row, Scout Obi took that honor in his Furrarri. But…wait for it…they and Cat Scout Teddy (Angel Sammy’s young brother) and his Moojuice Truck were the first runners-up. Jackson Galaxy was this year’s celebrity judge. This is what he said about Cooper and Mau’s entry, “Since I deal with hooligans in my line of work, I could use a Hooligan Paddy Wagon!”
Cooper Murphy and Mau also placed in two of the four voting categories. These were determined by popular vote. They placed second in the Most Creative category and third in the Crowd Favorite category.
This is what Denmaster said about the boys’ entry, “I’d also like to thank Scout Mau and Scout Cooper Murphy for their service in keeping hooliganism down at the event. Scouts Reno and Homer (two of Denmaster’s Cat Scouts) enjoyed their time in the Hooligan Paddy Wagon. As a thank you for the service, you will receive Shenanigans brand ‘Hooligan in a Can.’ Hooligan in a Can purrvides you with all the stuff you need to engage in shenanigans and mayhem. It is not endorsed by the Cat Scouts High Council.” We don’t think this product actually exists!
Cooper Murphy, Mauricio and I would like to thank all of our friends and followers who voted for them.
Nellie Gets Her Wings
We learned yesterday that a good friend and blogging icon, the beautiful Queen Nellie, passed on Good Friday. Though Nellie’s health has been failing for quite sometime, she and all her friends hoped to celebrate her 19th birthday with a big party on May 15th. We know she’ll be having a huge party at the Bridge with all her friends who passed before her. And we know she was greeted with huge hugs and rousing purrs and woofs. Though she is no longer with us physically, she will remain in our hearts and memories forever. Run free, Nellie! We love you.
If you haven’t had the opportunity, please stop by Nellie’s blog, Nellie on the Edge, and leave your condolences for her mom, Barb.

We are so sad about Nellie going to the Bridge, and are sending lots of love and purrs to Mom Barb.
I love the Hooligan wagon, such a clever idea. There were so many fun vehicles. We are very sad about Nellie too, she will never be forgotten. XO
All the south? Mom didn’t see that transposition/typo until she hit send. It was supposed to sy all the kitties I think. I can’t see it here yet.
Congratulations on a contest worked hard for! You kitties are very deserving. ALL the South did such a fine job. Mom and me, we loved looking at the entries.

Congrats on the great showing at the Derby! We sure will miss beautiful Nellie.
You boys did an incredible job! The paddy wagon is super cool! We’re so sad about Nellie … she was truly one of a kind and we all loved her. The blogosphere won’t be the same without her. Her loss hits us as hard as Fiona’s … we miss Fiona so much and she will always have a special place in our hearts!
Congrats to all the Derby winners! There sure were some pawsome entries this year.
We are sad about Nellie, too. She was loved by so many…and we all will miss her very much.
All the entries were awesome but I must admit I was partial to Mau and Cooper Murphy! Well done! So sorry for the passing of little Nellie. 19 years is amazing. I know her family and friends are missing her terribly. My sincere condolences.
EVERYKITTY did a great job and had a good time at the Cardwood Derby !
Yes, it IS possible to be happy and sad at the same time – and it is all righty to feel that way too.
Everyone will miss Nellie!
We just love your Hooligan Paddy Wagon, Mauricio and Cooper Murphy. And what a rave review from Jackson Galaxy himself! Also, we think this Hooligan in a Can sounds like a great product. Let us know how it works.
We are sending our sincerest purrs and prayers to Nellie’s family.
YAY FOR US IN THE DERBY! We loved that we shared the Runner Up for the Grand Prize…..and were proud of Obi for winning two years in a row too. We’ll have to step up our game next year. Our hearts were certainly broken to learn of darling Nellie’s passing on Friday. The one “happy” thing in our hearts was knowing that Angel Sammy and I’m sure Angel Fiona, were in the front of the crowd of Angels waiting to welcome her to the Bridge. She was and always will be the queen of hearts………
ConCats on your wins at Scouts! We’re so happy that you did so well. We’re also very sad that Nellie had to leave for the Bridge. She was a special ladycat and we will miss her a lot.
The Florida Furkids with bajillion smoochies and tons of love to Mau from Allie
Concats to Mau and Cooper!!! Rest in peace Nellie
The competition for the Cardwood Derby this year was intense! I think everyone did a great job!
We’re all gonna miss Nellie.
Concats on all those good standings with your cardwood derby entry!
Yes it was a heavy hearted time in Blogville…but Nellie, being Nellie would wish us to be serene, knowing she is happy, healthy and able to do all the Nellie-Cat From Hell antics she wants to do!
She sure will be greatly missed here upon the earth.
