Tell the Truth Tuesday

Me - Al

It is me Al and I want to set the record straight today.  Mom pulled a April Fools prank on you guys yesterday and most of you fell for it hook line and sinker!!!  Heehee

She had no idea of what she was going to do for April Fools until she saw Dakota - the me look alike drummer for the Rock Cats.  Then it all came together - this great big fib about me auditioning for the band etc.  You have to admit that I do have an eery resemblance to the lovely Dakota.

Dakota the Rock Cat
Hope everyone had a fun day yesterday and no hard feelings. it was all in good fun.   Did you pull any pranks on someone on April Fools?  Please do share them in the comments.

The other thing we wanted to share was our new blog header.  So many left nice comments about it.  Mom's friend Susanna is an artist and offered to do this one cat cartoon for her as a birthday gift, especially since Mom has just lost Chica on her birthday.  Susanna even added angels Chica and Joey to the drawing. It makes Mom smile.

If you want to see more of Susanna's work check out her web page or if you are on Facebook, check out her FB page.

That is all I am confessing to today!  See y'all next time!

Big News on Mancat Monday!!!!!

As you know we planned on seeing the Acro Cats over the Easter weekend.  We found out online that they were auditioning local cats for guest spots with the Rock Cats band so we took our Al in.  He is deaf but we have trained him to respond to hand signals and his lack of hearing makes him immune to the noise of the crowd.  Maybe he won't hear the music he makes but he can bang the drums!

We will share some pics of the Acro Cats in action while we finish telling our exciting story about Al.

We went the the theater early and sat thru various other cat's auditions.  When it came to our Al's turn, he did wonderfully!  He caught on quickly and never even wandered from his seat.  After answering a few more questions, we were very excited to learn they had chosen our Al to guest star on Sunday's late show!  That gave them time to work with him a bit.

Flash ahead...time for the show and the theater was filling up quickly with people of all ages.  Samantha began with the star Tuna and introduced each of the cats with a wonderful acrobatic routine.  She even has a groundhog named Garfield, some tightrope walking rats and a chicken named Gregory Peck.  All of her cats are rescues and she told us each of their stories.

Then...drum roll...the highlight of the show - the Rock Cats. The guitarist and keyboard cats came out and finally Al on drums.  He looked specatular!!  It was quite the event to see them all playing along with Tuna on cowbells and Sookie on chimes.

Al wasn't happy with the pink collar he had to wear but all went smoothly and no one knew it was not the actual Rock Cat drummer Dakota until they revealed his identity at the end of the show!  We are so proud of our Al!

 Looks like we GOTCHA!!!
