My cat, Cat, is the mascot of the Smithsonian Animal Institute’s (SAI) annual Cat Fest.
She has been with the institute since 1992.
Cat was born on April 19, 1994.
On April 19th, she was born in a birthing center at the University of Wisconsin.
Cat is a cross between a lion and a poodle.
She loves to dance, jump on things and sometimes climb on people’s backs.
Cat’s father, who is named Bob, is a veterinarian.
Cat has been known to bark and sing.
I met Cat in a local restaurant on March 4, 2010.
I have to admit, I am not a big fan of cats.
Cats are a nuisance and a pest, but I am glad I got to meet her.
Cat, who has been a part of SAI since 1992, has a love of people and animals, and I was lucky enough to meet a cat lover.
We had a great time.
But she wasn’t a big crowd-pleaser.
We were there for a good cause and it wasn’t just me who was in attendance.
I was a volunteer, too.
The event was also about to end.
At around 5 p.m., the door opened.
Cat hopped up and down.
She was very excited to see me.
I knew right away that she was an honorary Cat and wanted to thank me for the opportunity.
I couldn’t have asked for a better moment to introduce myself.
I asked her what she wanted to do with the day, and she said she was going to make a special announcement at the end of the day.
She then announced her favorite activities of the year: making a cat bed, making a kitty kitty cat bed and eating cat food.
Cat loves making a bed, so she made a kittie kitty bed.
She also made a special kitty ball, which is what we use for kitty parties.
We also had the opportunity to sit on a kite and have a little kitty show.
Cat wanted to go on a cat ride.
We are not sure how the kitty ride went, but she got to do it.
Cat also went on a tour of the museum.
We visited the cat exhibits, the exhibit house, the pet display and the kitties exhibit.
The highlight of Cat Fest was meeting Cat, a cat, at a kennel.
She is an incredible cat lover and a very gentle cat.
Thank you, Cat!
