Looking Back at 2012
It’s time to say good-bye to 2012 and raise a toast to 2013. But before I leave this year, I want to look back at some of the great times I had.
My human went to the Friskies Plus Playhouse — a kitty dream house that was the temporary home for rescue cats from MeoowzResQ! Many of these kitties got even luckier and found homes because of the extra publicity they received!
In addition to Boxing Day, December 26, there is also International Box Day in June, and I celebrated by doing a box version of the cult film Fight Club!
I was fortunate to land an interview with cat behaviorist and My Cat From Hell star Jackson Galaxy! I think that to this day, I am the only actual cat who has interviewed him!
Of course, the big news of 2012 was my tenth birthday on June 24, which coincidentally also happened to be Cat World Domination Day! Not only was it a lot of fun, my human made donations to Forever Home Feline Ranch, AniMeals and Cramar Cat Rescue and Sanctuary!
BlogPaws also happened during my birthday weekend! My human went to Salt Lake City as my representative… and she came home with this awesome Pet Fusion Scratch Lounger!
When my human went to the Cat Writers Conference (where she spoke about blogging), there were even more goodies! So much, in fact, that she wound up donating most of it. We got to keep a handful of toys and she saved a few for gifts.
Of course, not everything was wonderful in 2012. There were some bad fashion choices.
But looking back, I think the most awesome thing that happened in 2012 was that I helped get this kitty rescued! The crazy thing is that he was in Canada, and I was in Los Angeles, and I heard about him from Jake’s human in Boston! But it turned out I knew of a rescue in the area and I also had a fan nearby! Thank you, Forever Home Cat Rescue and Mandi! You made my year!
What intentions will I set for 2013? I do want my books and Zazzle store to do better than ever… but even more, I want to see more cats rescued and more homes for the homeless! Please join me at midnight to make this wish come true!
