The Feline Americans and I are wishing Mom the best of luck for her big awards presentation tonight. Mom is getting all dressed up in formal wear (since she's not a Tuxedo cat like me ... she had to buy a gown) to participate in a television show and maybe get to be San Diego County "Teacher of the Year." She rented a limosine to drive the grandparents (grandpa's wearin' his FIRST tuxedo ever!), her visiting aunt and uncle from Oregon, her brother (our Uncle James), and his girlfriend down to the theater for the ceremony. Mom's colleagues from school (and the district) will be there as well as her most treasured colleague: Her mentor, Dr. Anderson-Cruz.
We're awfully proud of our mom and wish her well ... but even if she isn't chosen, she's still the greatest in our book (No, I'm not kissing up for more treats ... I REALLY mean it! I am not a brown-noser. Besides, my beaky-beak leather is black!).
Mom's students dared her to thank us in her acceptance speech ... And Mom's just ballsy enough to do it. Sooooo ... If you're watching television in San Diego tonight and happen to catch our mom on the screen, listen to see if she mentions "DaisyMae and the Feline Americans" at the very end of her speech. We'll see ...
But regardless of the outcome, join me in a little "shout out" to Mom ... Whoo hoo! Whoo hoo! Whooooo hooooo! Good luck, Mom! Don't step on the hem of your gown and remember to smile. There are squillions of people watching you! We're rooting for you and will be watching from home since you wouldn't smuggle us into the theatre in a ginormous Louis Vuitton pet carrier! That's okay. Our feelings aren't hurt ... much.
Mwaaah. Mwaaah. Big kisses to Mom. We're so proud.
