One Fancy Cat!

It's time for my Big Huge Gigantic Super-News!

Hmmmm. . . sounds interesting.
Cat Fancy Magazine featured 45 Amazing Library Cats in the February 2010 issue. Now, everyone should know that a list of Amazing Library Cats wouldn't be complete without me.

So I looked in Cat Fancy Magazine. Much to my disappointment, I was not #1. (I really don't understand why, either, since my AB and AABs seem to understand that I'm #1.)

I was not #2. . . or #3. . . or #4. By the time I turned the page, my tail was beginning to droop and my purr was weakening. Still, Amazing Library Cat that I know I am, I read on.

Oh wait, what is this?
I was not #10 or #20. I was forming a letter to the Editor of Cat Fancy Magazine (who I thought should probably change careers) in my head.

But my reading paid off! I am #42 on Cat Fancy's list of Amazing Library Cats! I am famous! I didn't even have to TRY to get on the list. . . they came to me! It was a wonderful (and well deserved) surprise!

I immediately commanded staff to put up a display in my honor. They did okay, although I was expecting a bronze statue like the ones for the Secret Garden:
My display! (They really go all out, don't they?)
Just so no one gets overly excited, please note the paperclip on my photo. It is there for a reason. No offense to that other cat, but people need to know who's who around here.

An Amazing Library Cat
(Ooh. AAB Christine just said something about now my head won't fit through my Litterbox Door. What does that mean?)

Tail up & motor running,

The World-Famous Amazing Library Cat,

Tober

Congratulations Tober!

It would be an outrageous thing if you'd been left off that list Tober.

All libraries should have a cat like you.

Tober! Congratulations! Our mom gets Cat Fancy and has the February issue...but she hasn't read it yet. We saw on the cover that they were featuring library cats and we wondered if you'd be in there...now we know!! That's so cool!

Congratulations, Tober! We think you are a wonderful and now world famous library cat! Do you get extra treats for that? ;-)

Your fans,

I saw you in there and that is how I found your blog... and starting keeping up with you all the way from MI... I think you should be number 1 anyways because I have a soft spot for Orange cats!

That is fab news Tober, but we think you deserved to be #1, 2, 3 and 4!

The Crew said...

Wait a minute...you were number 42?! I should have thought you'd be number 1. After all, you're the only library cat in the cat blogosphere!!

Sorry we haven't visited in a while, Tober. We just got our February issue of Cat Fancy so will check you out, although we agree that you should have been right at the top of the list! After all, you're famous in this house, and this house is in France!

Congrats!

Congrats! I know you're disappointed about not making top cat, but at #42, you share the same # as Mariano Rivera of the NY Yankees, the greatest relief pitcher EVER! That's some good company. : )
