Your Vote Counts

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I need your help. My friend T over at I Have Cat suggested I submit one of my blog posts to The Articulate Animals Gallery of The National Gallery of Writing. She had me at Articulate.

They will only let me submit ONE post. Sheesh, that's like eating one potato chip for crying out loud. So I'm in a quandary over what to submit. That's where my adoring fans come in. That means you.

I've narrowed things down to a few of my personal faves. Well a couple are Glogirly's picks. She of course had to choose those that ranked on the cat-humiliation scale. But she's the one that keeps my food dish filled. Gotta keep her happy so I don't starve.

Here's our Top-Six-Picks. Just click on them to take a peek. Once you've decided which is your fave, cast your vote in the poll that appears on the upper right portion of the blog. If you have a different fave, you can do a write-in vote in the comment section. And if the little poll button is too small for your delicate paws, well just leave me a comment. I know this may interfere with your scheduled nap time, so don't feel bad if you can't vote.

What should I come back to earth as in my next life? A maid? A hooker? Oh, what to do, what to do.

My dish is half empty. I have a new harness and leash. They are pink.

Every cat should have a label maker. It's the perfect gadget for the overly-organized, obsessive-compulsive townhouse kitty.

Somedays I only have one thing to say. Fine. Forget my birthday. Fine.

So much to do, so much to ponder. How do I ever get it all done?

I sit down with James Lipton and respond to those ten questions everyone's dying to know the answers to.

The polls are now open. Scroll up and look right.
Make your voice heard.


  1. Hiya Katie!!! We voted for "Inside the Actor's Studio". That was GRR-8!!! Good luck! Stop on by for some purrday fun! LOTS of fun!!!

  2. Cool! It was a hard choice, but I chose "Fine" because it made me laugh.

  3. They are all great!!! Very , very funny! You should write a book Katie!!

    Purrs Goldie,Shade and Banshee

  4. Hi Katie!
    It was a hard choice but I chose Fine because I could really relate to it, even being a dog.
    Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

  5. Well, we all picked "Next Life" cuz we think there's nothing cuter than a cat tangled up in the covers and well, we are anxious to know if you can earn some green papers for being in bed cuz if you can, then we will apply for the job, too, as we have lots of experience!

  6. I;m voting for inside the actors studio!

  7. We vote for "In My Next Life" and "Fine". We can't make up our minds. We're glad we happened upon your blog.

  8. Such a hard decision to just pick one!! We voted for Inside the Actor's Studio!

  9. We can't make up our minds because they are all so good! Too bad you can't submit all of them! We're gonna pick inside the Actor's Studio 'cuz it links back to a couple of other good ones...like In My Next Life...so it's like getting 2 or 3 posts for 1!!

  10. HI Katie
    We had a hard time making up our minds, being cats, ya know.
    Finally we settled on IN MY NEXT LIFE.
    All of these posts are wonderful and we enjoyed re-reading them.


  11. We like all of them but chose in my next life

  12. This is so difficult because the are all really, really good. I almost voted for Fine, but chose In My Next Life. I'm tellin ya, I wanted to vote for the others too.

  13. We voted for Inside the Actors Studio because we love that show and you just made us laugh so hard with that one...although I like "Fine" a whole lot too.

    Purrs. I agree with Goldie, Shade and Banshee. You should write a book.

  14. Glogirly, we really enjoy Katie's writing. We're not sure why you are trying to take credit for it. (hee hee) Anyway, we voted for the blog post about the pink harness. We had a hard time deciding, but we liked that one the best. Keep writing, because we would love to keep reading.

  15. Of these I like My Next Life, but I love the one with the story of how GG and Gman met... but then they are all my favorites.

  16. Hi Katie and Glogirly,

    Just wanted to say we voted for "In my next life", but our personal fave is "pole dancer".

    Love your blog!

  17. They are all great posts! We voted for "Fine"

    Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

  18. I wanted to vote for all of them, but In My Next Life, we loved that one!

  19. We definitely like 'Fine'! Very funny post!

  20. Hi! So glad you like the painting. Mom has a website www(dot)drawingsbydana(dot)com with her other art and also a zazzle store www(dot)zazzle(dot)com/creekart*

  21. Why is it that humans delight in embarassing us? (And no Mom, I haven't forgotten about you posting a picture of me in the litterbox!)

    Anyway Katie, Mom couldn't decide between "In My Next Life" or "Fine" so I'm going to decide. I can relate the the forgotten purrthday, having suffered that as well when I turned 11. But I think your idea of getting paid to be in bed is wonderful, so that one will get my vote.


  22. wow! look at all these posts! cool!
    okay, quick question, will the story be published with or without picutures? then i can vote!

  23. It was a tough choice, but we went with Actor's Studio. That was funny.
