Hi everyone, Katie here.
Last night was the highly anticipated Internet Cat Video Film Festival at the internationally renowned Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. I sent Glogirly and Flat Katie to cover the event on my behalf, and was I EVER glad I did! Just LOOK at this crowd! The Walker is reporting that over 10,000 people were in attendance!!!
Whoa, this kitty likes her fame, but I don't even like the cat sitter. So you can imagine how I'd respond a crowd this size! Despite my recent PRESS COVERAGE, not a single person recognized Flat Katie. Ok, it was getting dark so I'll cut them some slack.
Glogirly and I were texting back and forth. She provided updates regarding people wearing cat ears. On the lookout for some REAL cats, she ran into my summer fling, Spaghetti Bob Registered Therapy Kitten. Unfortunately, Bob was disappointed in Flat Katie. He prefers a more rubenesque girlcat. Someday we must meet in the fur.
As you know, I submitted a number of videos from my private collection for consideration in the event. When Glogirly got her paws on the program she perused the long list of videos looking for a familiar name. Sadly it was not to be.
So while Glogirly tried hard to enjoy the rest of the show, I plotted at home. What kind of revenge would befit an oversight of this magnitude? Who must this revenge be directed at?
Sure, there were bigger names than mine. But come on, just how many videos of Maru can you possibly watch in a lifetime? Cute cat squeezes into diet soda box. Box gets stuck on cute cat. Cute cat slides around on floor in said box. Woo.
Just when I was about to rip the Keyboard Cat a new one, the garage door opened and Glogirly came racing up the stairs. She beelined it to her computer and was tap-tap-tapping away. Seems the Walker people put together a collection of Honorable Mention videos. All paws were crossed as we waited for the page to load.
AND THERE I WAS!!!!!!!!!!! OMC! The Real Housecats Of The Blogosphere (season 2 episode 2) MADE THE LIST! I'm honorable! I'm honorable!
Ok, what's honorable? What? No prize? No guest appearances on Animal Planet? The phone hasn't even rung yet.
I guess I'll just have to lay my head back on my pillow and plot some more.
Glogirly here -
Not that Katie would tell you, but the Cat Video Film Festival was a smashing success! HUGE crowd of people chanting, "CAT - CAT - CAT." By the end I'm certain everyone's faces were hurting from laughing so much. It was extremely well done with the video clips all organized into fun CAT-egories.
And despite her "remarks," we're huge fans of Maru and Keyboard Cat. : )
The famous Henri won the People's Choice and the first "Golden Kitty Award" for Henri 2 Paw de Deux. If you haven't seen Henri before, you MUST!
