Cats have a hard time picking a winner

2014-10-24 11.55.36


Cats have a hard time picking a winner. Cats have such a soft gentle nature, we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.

A few days ago I offered to give away my birthday party hat. Mrs. Hodges wrote out seven pieces of paper with seven numbers on them. I know you can not see number seven. But, it is there.

She said I was supposed to pick one number and the comment that corresponded to the number I chose would get one of my hats.

The number I chose was number five. And number three belongs to my dear friend Laura McCoy and her dog Edelweiss. She will be receiving the hat I have on in the photograph.


But, I just couldn’t bear to have the other cats sad and unhappy about not receiving one of my hats.

Cats have a hard time picking a winner. We don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.

I am also sending a hat to my Grandmother, Berdeane, to Rhonda in Australia. One hat to Marie and her four cats, MacKayla the Empress, Joel Gray, William the Orange and Giblet Paws. Hats will also be sent to Beth Anne and to Shelly and Skittles.

I do love all of my friends who left a comment on my story, Cats love birthday parties if they can wear a party hat.  I hope they like their hats.  I will even sign them.

All my love,

Love Pooh

  • Awww Pooh thank you so much! I hope Milo likes your party hat. Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Rhonda

    Oh Pooh, what a wonderful cat you are. I am speechless at your kindness and generosity.

    • Hello Rhonda,
      Thank you so much so saying I am a wonderful cat. Yes, I am so wonderful I like to spray on the ceramic pot Mrs. Hodges brought in from the front porch. There was a nasty smell on it from a stray cat.
      I like to protect Mrs. Hodges by marking her property line inside and out.
      All my best,
      Love Pooh

  • La McCoy

    Dear Pooh.,
    I am so excited you chose me to win your personal party hat. I understand how difficult it is to choose. I agree with you decision to send a hat to everyone.
    I am excited. now i get to know what you smell like.
    Love Edelweiss

    • Good Evening Laura and Edelweiss,
      I have decided to send the hat in your size Laura as it appears that Edelweiss may chew up the hat.
      Edelweiss, please don’t eat your mothers birthday party hat. Please eat a newspaper or a paper bag instead.
      All my love,
      love Pooh

    Pooh, I applaud your magnanimity!

    • My dearest Tamara,
      I appreciate the applause.
      I pray you and your family are well. Mrs. Hodges does miss picking weeds with you in your garden.
      All my best,
      Love Pooh
