Did you know I won a contest over at my club, The Tuxedo Gang Hideout? Well I did! I had to identify the 9 tuxie cats pictured. One was me, so that made it a little easier, but I still did it. Well...Mom helped some, but it was mostly me.
I'm excited 'cause my fabulous prize package arrived today. I wonder what's in it?
Oh man, look at this! It has everything a Mancat could want!! Two foods, two packages of toys, a huge bag of treats, a kitty 'frigerator magnet, a card signed by Samantha Black herself, a kitty purse.... Wait a minute. A purse? Um...I think I'll let Mom have that.
Anyway, Mom said I should give an acceptance speech and thank everyone, so here goes.
Let's see...of course, first I want to thank my very good friend Samantha and her Mom for hosting the Tuxedo Gang and running the contest and all my fellow tuxies who were pictured and all the other gang members, too.
Then I want to thank my family who are always there for me. My brother, George, who, even though he isn't a tuxie, is still a great brother, and my sisters, Tipper and Misty, who want me to say they wear gray tuxedo dresses. Then there's Mom and Dad who adopted me and take good care of me, even though I don't like getting my mats cut or my claws clipped, and...
(ahem) Max, you're running a little long, dear.
But I still have people to thank. Um...where was I? Oh yes...my catmom and catdad, even though I don't remember her and never knew him, 'cause without them I wouldn't even be here, and the people at the shelter where I lived who took care of me and my catmom before I was adopted and all my friends in The Cat Blogosphere, too.
Thank you, everyone.
