The Texas State Cat...

LSU's "Mike the Tiger" better get off the stage when it comes to this Cat...

* He's wanted in every state *

* Admired by millions of women *

* Has a charm that will knock your crocs (or flip flops) off *

* Can smell a good piece of junk a mile away *

* Tames his lioness like nobody's business *


I just LOVE him to pieces!!!

I'm talking about the ONE & ONLY...CAT DADDY,

aka CD!!!

oh. He might "look" like he's bothered by a beautiful kitten wrapping her paws around him and hugging him tight...but trust me, that's his "happy smile"!!!

Now before his Trash Talkin' lioness Debbie goes all postal on me for falling in love with her husband, I must admit something...

I'm just as in LOVE with her as I am with him!!!!

Do you believe in first love?

I do.

From the moment I first clicked on Debbie's blog a couple of years ago, I was hooked on every keystroke, every thought that came out of her head, her e.v.e.r.y. word.

She's the Queen of Trash Talk, the Empress of Junk, Comedian of all comedians, Mom of melon heads and the best Grandmother in the whole wide world.

But most of all, she's MY FRIEND and that's an oh~so~powerful word that needs no explanation.

To see this couple once we crossed the Texas border was my first priority and what a WONDERFUL afternoon we had.

Heck, I'd drive through rain, snow, sleet, or cattle in the Texas wilderness...and miss breakfast, lunch and dinner to see these two.

Luckily, the sun was shining, we met at a restaurant and had bloody mary's and lots of good food! The perfect day!!!!

You don't believe me?

Well, maybe these smiles will have you convinced of all the fun we had...

We have to pause a second...

The lioness was getting all jealous of the beautiful kittens around her Cat so she claimed her territory once again!

I really hated the good-byes.

I think Cat Daddy did too.

He left, went back to work and returned to surprise me for the second time!

Just between me and you...I really think he wanted another hug from me but don't tell Debbie...she'll claw me to pieces! ;)

I'm a happy little kitten.

I'll see them again next weekend at the junk show in Round Top, Texas!!!

In 8 Days!!!!

I'll bring my band-aids, butterfly-aids and sutures as nothing is going to stop me from clinging to the Cat Daddy of Texas...

not even the claws of the lioness...

nor all of the "other" kittens out there...

(only a restraining order)


I can't wait!!!!

(i love you debbie!)

trash talk said...

Well I've thought and thought and there is just no way I can top this! You have out-talked...out-done...out-laughed... and totally out-rageoused me! I am officially declawed. (Besides, haven't I always told you that if you truly want him...he's yours. Just remember the "no refunds; no returns" policy I have here at the Casita de Trash!)
Baby girl, the sun is always shining when I get to spend time with you. There are friends and then there ARE friends. As you can's an oh-so-powerful word conjuring up images of love, family, and trust...all the things I think of you when I see you. I'm the one that was blessed the day our blogs clicked and doubly blessed the day you rounded the corner of my tent!
You keep me inspire me to give me your shoulders to stand on, cry on and lean on. Thank you my Crazy, crazy Cajun girl!
P.S. I consider you my special lagniappe of life!
