The awards banquet will be held tonight in the beautiful kitchen with a menu featuring a can of Alaskan King Crab-flavored Sheba® and Culligan filtered water with just enough ice cubes ...
Mom keeps track of our behavior each quarter, grades us on our individual merits and general "cattiness", and then makes the announcement. I thought that I was gonna repeat, but to my utter disappointment, the title of "Housecat of the Quarter" for March 3, 2007 goes to:
HOUSECAT OF THE QUARTER: MARCH 3, 2007

My "PtMiwM*" story: Mom speculates that I was a pure-bred show cat owned by a horrible cat-lady who lived down the street and that she let me go because I had a heart murmur and one distended testicle. I was furry frightened, but came on Mom's porch to get some food. Mom was sitting in the doorway one afternoon when I came up for some food. I saw the Feline Americans inside the house, vaulted over Mom's legs, and the rest is history. I'm the oldest EVER of the Feline Americans. I'm very scrawny, but I'm determined to hold my own as long as I can. *PtMiwM means Prior to Movin' in with Mom
Favorite Treat: BBQ pork from the Chinese place
I get my name engraved on the "Housecat of the Quarter" perpetual trophy, so I've achieved immortality!
The 'HotQ' Bag O'Swag included:
A plethora of "fev-ver" mice.
And a case of Sheba Feline Paté in all of my favorite flavors ...
And last, but certainly not least, forty-eight packages of Dairy-flavored Temptations®!
In addition to his fabulous prizes, Fudge Ripple also receives a lifetime supply of BBQ pork, chicken from KFC and/or El Pollo Loco, and burgers from Carl's Jr. and/or Burger King!!!
