Meowllo everypawdy and welcome Furiday. Me knows we’re all happy it’s finally Furiday, right?. Well, it’s also blooper Furiday. Me purrticipated in this once and then me always furgets. Did you know dat fur somethin’ to become a habit you must repeat da action daily fur 3 weeks. Yep sure ‘nuff. 3 weeks and you’re set. Well dat’s what they say anyhow. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track.
This week at Cat Scouts, we had da task of earnin’ a new badge. So me went fur da Olympic Long Jump Badge. Yep, dat sounded like a pawsum badge and one me didn’t have. So me’s all set to go and of course dat meant mommy was in charge of da camera. Well you all know how dat went. Mommys camera skills leave a lot to be desired. MOL You know mommy was late to da digital pawrty. She still had a 35mm camera when we started out on facebook. And then she bought a little $20.00 digital job dat took horrific fotos and broke really fast. So these here digital cameras are way above mommy’s understandin’. MOL You all think me’s getting’ off track again don’t ya’? Surprise, me’s not. Me was tellin’ ‘bout mommy’s experience to ‘splain what happened with me’s blooper foto.
See in da olden days you had to pay fur film to put in dat camera and then ya’ had to pay to get da foto off dat camera. So most fotos were posed. Ya’ didn’t just snap, snap, snap away. And there was no delete or takin’ it back. You paid fur all da fotos, even da bad ones. Anyways, mommy’s still not very good at ketchin’ da action as you can see in me’s long jump foto below. But she tries.
Me also has da names of da winners fur me’s Catit give away. Fank you all fur enterin’ and ConCats to: Pete Hartley, Mary Marchman, and Shoko and Kali of Canadian Cats. Me will be sendin’ ya’ll emails later. Don’t furget ifin ya’ live in New York, you don’t wanna miss out on da Catit Playground event this weekend.

Afur yous ask, No, mommy didn’t get any more techy and still didn’t unnewstand those hashtags and stuffs; but mommy’s not a quitter and she will twy hers hawrdest to figger fings out. Did fings get any better yous ask? Not weally. Mommy still didn’t know what she was duin’, but we was there and twyin’. Dat’s what counted. Let me tell ya’ sumfin’ ‘bout this twitter. It moves fast and dusn’t slow down fur peeps twyin’ to learn. And there’s a maximum number of letters you can tweet. Well yous all know weez chatty kits so we find dat a bit stiflin’. MOL Dat bein’ sed, weez keep twyin’.

Da furst time we twied to win da twivia question was asked and like a 4 year old we blurted out da answer. Actually we posted da answer to da feed. Well dat’s not how yous posed to do it. MOL By da time we figgered out how to send a message, da whole chat was over. MOL You weally shuld see mommy twyin’ to figger it all out and keep up. And of course luv on me, cuz me be sittin’ in hers lap twyin’ to play patty cake wiff her. And anudder fing, they always have these chats at dinner time. Don’t they know when weez have dinner?

Yep, there was a chat last night. Mommy had set up hers weminder and we got logged in wight on time. Fings was actually movin’ a little slow and mommy was quite happy wiff dat. And all of a sudden everypawdy else’s clock musta been slow, cuz afur we kuld blink, da race was on. Tweets flyin’ here and there and little pop up boxes appearin’ and disappearin’ faster than we kuld read ‘em and so many gawjus kitty fotos movin’ down da stweam afur we kuld even paw da like button much less make a comment. And then da give aways began. Me told mommy to hurry cuz me wanted to win. Sis Lexi was watchin’ fwum a safe distance on da back of da chair, me was layin’ in hers lap, and mommy’s fingers was on fire clickety clackin’ on da puter keys. And guess what? Me won!!! Me finally won a twitter chat give away. OMC Me kuldn’t believe it. So now yous askin’ yous selff, did mommy finally figger it all out? Did she visit da fountain of youff?
