I am so excited! Every year, the Cat Writers’ Association has a contest and mostly humans who write about cats enter. This year, my human entered a couple of my stories… and they each earned a Certificate of Excellence! That means that the judges gave my stories high scores and I get a certificate. It also means I’m a contender for the Muse Medallion in my category, which is given to the top scoring story.
I bet you are wondering which of my stories got the Certificates of Excellence! Here they are:
Ten Tips to Trounce Kitty Troublemaking
I explain in this story how kitties get bored, and what humans can do to give us a good time and keep us from having to make our own fun. (For some reason, humans get upset when we do that.) If you haven’t read the story, you can do so here.
Cat Tricks: Sit Up, High Five, Shake and Stay
In which I show how kitties can learn several basic tricks… and earn treats in the process! This story is here.
They are both in the “Online Article: Behavior and Training” category, so they are up against each other. Also I’m competing against my human who got a Certificate of Excellence for one of her own stories. (In case you are wondering, it is an article she wrote about harness and leash training.) The photos are all of me, so it’s all good. It’ll be interesting to see if I win the Muse Medallion or if my human does! Which of us do you think will win?
