Happy Friday! Yesterday, the Cat Writers’ Association announced the 2019 Certificate of Excellence Winners. I’m over the moon to have received certificates for 7 of the 8 entries I submitted (details below). A very big congratulations to all of the certificate winners! Can’t wait to see who is honored with MUSE Medallions later this year during the virtual awards ceremony.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Miss Grabby Paws
Sophie: What’s dat?
Mama: It’s not yours.
Sophie: I want it.
Mama: Don’t touch it.
Sophie: Must touch it?
Ice Cream Sniffer
Woodrow: Can I have a sniff of your ice cream?
Woodrow: Why not?
Mama: Last time you licked it.
Woodrow: Just a sniff, I promise.
Mama: Okay, but just a sniff.
Perched high above, Queen Olive peers down to see if there is anything of interest. There is not.
Mama: Could you not?
Dexter: I can’t cannot.
Dexter: Wait, I mean I can.
Dexter: Can you rephrase the question? It’s confusing.
Mama: Can you stop scratching the headboard?
Dexter: I cannot.
Harley Says Hi
Mama: Did you want something?
Harley: Just popping in to say hi.
Mama: Okay, bye.
Mixed Up Mama
Mama: What did you do?
Sophie: What do you mean?
Mama: You only give me that look when you’ve done something.
Sophie: Something awesome?
Mama: Something bad.
Sophie: Can you define awesome vs. bad? I think you have your definitions mixed up.

Here are the entries I submitted for the 2019 CWA Contest and won a Certificate of Excellence for.

Social Media: Humor/Entertainment

While I’m most excited about the social media humor/entertainment certificate (since that’s where 90% of my energy goes toward regarding Three Chatty Cats), I’m actually most honored about the Litter-Robot Review certificate. Why? It was not a sponsored review – I simply wrote it to help cat owners. And it’s my all-time highest performing post, nearing 18,000 views! So, to be recognized for writing it feels awesome. (End brag.)
Oh, and if you’re interested, here’s my entry that didn’t receive a certificate (Cat & Craft – A Coffee Shop and Cat Lounge). My cats said it’s because it’s not about them. But I like it nonetheless.
Stay safe, everyone!
