My sisfurs have been complaining about me hogging the computer for Cat Scouts as well as hogging the blog to post about Cat Scouts. But sometimes a Cat Scout has to do what a Cat Scout has to do.

Recently several of my troop mates from the Worldwide Wildcats, a few friends from other troops and I were honored to be purrmoted to the rank of Bobcat. We had a pawsome ceremony at Cat Scouts and a nice party at Campfire afterwards.

This is my Bobcat rank membership card and patch.

I also have been busy earning more Merit Badges. I earned the Thanksgiving badge for the poem in our side-bar.

cat scouts merit badge campfire storytelling

I earned the Campfire Tails badge for a true story about Mom and an angel she met, named Michael. I was required to tell the story at Campfire.

This was me practicing my song prior to going to Campfire.

This was me practicing my song prior to going to Campfire.

And just today, I earned the Sing-A-Song badge for the the song I wrote, which is printed below. I suggested this Merit badge so got 20 additional Karma points. I received 25 more points for earning it. And the Denmaster liked my song so much, I got 25 more points. How cool is that!

Mauricio’s Troop Worldwide Wildcat Anthem

I like to go camping
Winter, spring, summer and fall.
I gather all my Cat Scout buddies,
And we have ourselves a ball.

We go hiking and fishing and swimming
And are always careful that no one goes missing.
We cook s’mores and tell ghost stories
Or share in our friends’ merit badge glories.

Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me
So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea
Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals
Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

Cat Scouts is the happening place to be.
Cat Scouts is fun for Sammy, Raz, Sushi and Allie.
And troop Worldwide Wildcats is just the best.
We love putting our skills and talents to the test.

We’ve earned badges in mammal study, basketry and art
And celebrated our accomplishments together or apart.
It is one for all and all for one
In a troop where we know the fun has just begun.

Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me
So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea
Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals
Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

Many of us have the Bobcat patch on our chest
And are working hard to make our troop the best.
We are proud to be members of the Cat Scout organization
And look forward to continuing our scouting education.

So please come join us everyone.
We know that you’ll have oodles of fun
While learning the ancient and honored Cat Scout way
And having loads of fun each and everyday.

Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me
So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea
Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals
Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

Currently, I am ranked #3 on the Cat Scout Leader Board, in part due to the bonus points from the Sing-a-Song badge.

And lastly, since joining Cat Scouts, I have a nickname. My friend and troop mate, Sushi, gave it to me. The name is Mau, and I really like it ’cause I think it sounds like “meow” depending on an individual cat’s accent.

Hope our readers don’t mind this update as much as my sisfurs do. I know many of them are Cat Scouts as well.

Purrs, hugs and a Cat Scout salute, Bobcat Mauricio

We wanna know: Is it Mau rhymes with Joe, or Mau rhymes with Mao (like Zedong)?

Concatulations on becoming a Bobcat, Mauricio! We love your song. We thinks it should be the official Cat Scout Song or at the very least your troop song. Good Job! Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

Fur Everywhere December 3, 2013 at 10:55 am

We love your song!! You are doing so well in Cat Scouts 🙂

Thank you very much for our awards (given on Thanksgiving)! We will bug the Mom to post them for us later this week. We appreciate you thinking of us so much!

You are a very very talented scout pal. I is very impressed with that song.. You are good enough to be on that black box called TV.

Sammy December 3, 2013 at 8:48 am

Concats on all the karma points and merit badges Mau AND of course you know how excited I am that we might have an official Wildcat Anthem thanks to your pawsome song. I sent a couple of notes out about it to our Troop this morning but I’m SURE everyone will want it just like I do. You’re most generous and special. It’s incredible Scouts like you who make ME look good as a Troop Leader. I mean that buddy.

Scout and Kitty Hugs, Sammy

That’s such a fun song, Mauricio! We would love to join the Cat Scouts but Mommy says there just isn’t enough hours in a day. Bah.
MAU means cat in Cantonese. So apt! 🙂

Your Poems and songs are LITERATURE! We love ’em. Our Maui gets called Mau, too…among other things, MOL.

Tell your Mom that the Mousebeaters are as warm as a regular T-shirt, that is to say, not very. They do provide some High Fashion, though!

Spitty the Kitty December 2, 2013 at 11:50 pm

Yeah, well, I *am* a scout but I am prolly ranked, like 597 out of 597. I joined. And that’s about it. My Human has not helped me do a single thing. It is EMBARRASSING. I think I need to unjoin before I get a dishonorable discharge.

Conga-rats on being a Bobcat! You have a GOOD Human!
