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.
