Island Cat

When I started out blogging not so long ago one of my first friends that I met were The Island Cats, Wally, Ernie, and Zoey. There are a great group of kitties and they have the neatest club going on over at their place.  The club has three rules for becoming a member.



1. You have to be a cat
2. You have to live on an island.
3. You have to be spoiled rotten.

I so much wanted to be an island cat and got two out of the three requirements out of the way. But living in the midwest there are not a lot of islands to live on. That would happen only in my dreams.

One day when I was visiting with Wally, Ernie, and Zoey I asked a few questions about their membership requirements. I had a couple of ideas that might get me into the club so I presented them with what I had in mind. I mentioned that I was having a problem with the number two requirement and would they consider if my state had an island in it, or could the dad could build an island in the kitchen for the mom to use while cooking, or if I could spell the word island could that help me qualify?



Just when I thought all was lost I received the following email with super news from my Island Club friends. "Gracie! You are so sweet asking to be an Island Cat!! Since you have met two out of three requirements, and you've come up with creative ways to be an island cat (begging helps) we have decided to make you an Honary Island Cat! Wally, Ernie, & Zoey"


l-r Ernie, Gracie, Wally, & Zoey

You can imagine my surprise which compares nothing to my excitement of being an island cat.

 Life is good!

Thanks guys! !

Awesome! Being an honorary island cat is so cool! I wishes I was on an islands...my moms used to live on a penensoolas, with an island like 10 minutes away...I always says MOM I COULD HAVE LIVED ON AN ISLANDS!! and she says...sowwee.

Hmmm, yes...it's hard to find an island in Indiana. But how nice of The Island Cats to recognize that since you can spell "island" correctly, you should be an honorary member!

Hi Gracie Girl!
Congrats on your new Island Cat Status! I'm a midwesterner as well. Believe it or not though I live just a couple blocks from an island. There's an island in the middle of the Mississippi River right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis. It's called Nicollet Island. Maybe I could be an island cat too!

You all look like you're having a great time in that sand!
