The Human: Texas, it’s the American dream.
Texas: Yes, that’s what I said, the Americat dream. Move over, human! This is my fame here!
Hiya everyone! Today is not Thankful Thursday but it can certainly be – expect a French accent here – Sankful Saturday (Because the French sometimes say “sank you” instead of “thank you”. . . ok whatever!).
So, it’s Thankful Saturday.
Remember back in January when I asked you if you would kindly vote for me in Westchester Magazine’s 2013 Pet of the Year Contest?
You kindly answered and voted for me and I could announce in February that I was among the ten cutest pets (out of 144) of the year in Westchester Magazine.
THANK YOU to all of you who voted for me!
The results of the 2013 Pet Contest is in Westchester Magazine’s April issue.
I am famous.
The Human: Well, Texas you are famous in Westchester County, NY.
Texas: human, drop the capital H please. I am a star and you are jealous, that’s it.
The human: No Texas, I am really happy for you!
Here’s what the humans at the magazine have to say about me:
The Bilingual Blogger
Have you read his blog? Yes, this cat is an ambitious one. When he’s not typing away, you can find Texas snuggled up in the recycling bin, listening to classical music or playing with his sister.
The human: The recycle bin? I wrote “a bag full of other plastic bags we keep for recycling.” That’s not the recycle bin!
Texas: True but… yeah, whatever.
And at the bottom of my page, you can also click to see a video of me (that I have posted below).
The human: oh no, Texas! I’m talking in the video, I hate my accent, you know that!
Texas: I’m famous!
When the humans are in the kitchen, I like to be not too far from them…
Sometimes, little yummy noms fall on the floor and I
catch them help the humans clean up.
Sometimes, the humans want me to clean their fingers too. I like to clean their fingers.
But the best moment in the kitchen is in the morning…
That’s when the humans get the cream cheese out of that white and cold closet behind me… Mmmmh… cream cheese…
Is it the white closet they’ve just opened?!?
[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]
I take a break from my weekly bilingual VBP post to dispatch (VBP) some news.
First, little-no-so-old me is literally (VBP) in the news! Yes I am!
No, not the newspawper! But I’m in a magazine. You know this bundle (VBP) of glossy (VBP) papers the humans (especially female humans) read. Want to know more? Consider visiting me on Saturday (well, yes, today is VBP day, I can’t take all the glory ;-)
Second piece of news is that little-not-so-old me is turning 7 in exactly one week! I don’t feel like I am aging (VBP)! Can you tell this face is almost 7?
Look at this strong body of mine (Hello! Lady Cats!)
Doesn’t this paw look brand new?
Ah! I knew it! So you are all invited to my purrthday next Thursday. Remember, April 4.
and least, my human is abandoning me to go to going to the Blog Paws Conference in May. Everything’s booked (VBP) but the transportation. You think there’s still hope she’ll stay with me?
Below are the past week’s pawticipants. As always, click on the bluey badge at the bottom of this post to enter your link for this week. And don’t forget to grab the badge! Thanks to everyone!

What have you been up to yesterday?
My human was out most of the day yesterday – grocery shopping (there was no more wet food!!) – so I took a little nap.
I was dreaming Spring had finally arrived. It was warm and… my human came home and the cold wind entered the home! I woke up!
Apparently there’s a winter storm coming our way. A WINTER storm. Do we need to elect a new Ceiling Cat or something to finally have Spring?
Meanwhile, if you really don’t know what to do, check what my human has found in the place called Manhattan (click on the picture to go to her blog’s post). She claims this is not raw fish! Hmpf!
Hope you have a great Sunday!
