Catstacular Event - Guest Post from Grace at Duck and Wheel with String

Today I would like to welcome a very special cat. A cat that is not often seen or heard; Grace from Duck and Wheel with String. I am telling you all of these beautiful girl cats are driving me crazy. What is the publicist trying to do to me?  I hope you like Grace's story:

While Hobbes gets the majority of the attention over at the Duck and Wheel, I want you to know that is not the case at home. Mom and I are very close and she often whispers in my ear that I am "her girl" - which makes me purr.  I thought my guest post for Pricilla's week off might be a good time to tell you all about me for a change.

Mom had to put her kitty, Molly, down the day I came to live with them - she was sick for along time.  Colin and Emma were very young then, so Mom and Dad planned on giving another kitty a home right away because she didn't want Colin and Emma to be sad for too long.

That day come too quickly and the whole family appeared at the no-kill shelter that I was living at.  It was in a house, so it was pretty nice, but I wanted to be an only kitty and wanted out of there fast. I actually greeted my new family at the door and acted like I was all cuddly and loved kids - but it was an act. I'm sort of an actress, I guess.

Here is my baby picture:

While I'm not big on cuddling OR kids, I do like Mom. She and I nap together and I like to sit by the tub while she takes bubble baths - it is our time together. She and I also talk a lot and I help her when she is on the computer - I sit on the keyboard.

I like Dad and the kids a bit better now, but I still don't like Hobbes. In fact, I don't like any other kitties - I like to be an only cat. I barely tolerate that big orange guy and swat at him every chance I get.  Sometimes, I even chase him when Mom is not looking.

Hobbes is actually second fiddle around the house, although you wouldn't know it by all the attention he gets at our blog.

I am very glad that Grace found a forever home even if she has to live with Hobbes. Hmmm, I wonder if this means she would not like me, either. Oh, well! You should head over to Duck and Wheel with String for some fun posts and for I Love Hobbes Thurdays. Hobbes kind of looks like me....

Be sure to head over to the publicist's blog where she has a great review of some yummy cat treats from Po's Bag of Bones Bakery.


  1. Awwwwwwww Grace needs to post more. The photo of Hobbes under the sink is priceless with Grace up there showing who's really boss of the house!

  2. It's so nice to get a good peek at Grace and hear her story. I like that pretty girl!

  3. It was great to learn more about pretty Grace!

  4. Thank you to our cat pallies for hosting this event and for letting Grace come over to post! She was very excited to get the chance to be the star for a change! :)

  5. I'm so glad Grace got her own spot in the lime-light! That orange stripy goodness she lives with does hog the show a bit! But we love them both equally! :)

    Fun blog!

  6. i love the pic of hobbes under the sink!

  7. Grace needs her own blog!!! What a pretty kitty!

  8. pretty kitten-cat!
    and how sweet of pricilla to give up her throne and allow a guest post-er.

  9. Good to hear your voice, Grace:) You look so much like my Lucy. Well, your baby picture anyway- Lucy's still kind of a young'n.

  10. Oh Grace you are very pretty and we don't blame you a bit for wanting to be the only cat in the house. A bunch of us here feel the same way. One of our roomies here, Mewmew, really wants to be the only cat. She is very bossy. Nothing wrong with that. Enjoyed your post and love your blog. Nice to meet all of you.

  11. Grace, you totally let Hobbes steal your thunder on your human's blog! I have be really careful on my blog because Binga would totally take over if I let my guard down for even a second.

  12. Well you are certainly getting to meet lots of pretty girls, erm I mean kitties.

  13. OH my goodness! Every week should be catstacular week! :)

  14. We loved learning more about Grace! I'm a momma's girl too so I enjoyed he story very much!


  15. I have a feeling Grace is really a big softie underneath it all. That tough girl routine doesn't work on me.


Maaaaaa away....
