Indie Kitty

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I'm an Indie Kitty! I'm an Indie Kitty! What's an Indie Kitty you ask? Well to answer this we must first uncover the many meanings of Indie.


The Urban Dictionary defines Indie as "Cooler than Emo." Now I don't know who this Emo guy is, but I'm going to assume he's very cool. The Urban Dictionary goes on to note that Indie is an informal version of Independent. Here's where it gets even cooler: Indie has come to symbolize originality and forward-thinking.

So as an Indie Kitty, I am an independent, original, forward-thinking, cooler than emo CAT. Now how cooler than emo is THAT!!

How did I earn my Indie Status?
Why, Indie Smiles of course.

My good friend Linda G. Jones is an artist, writer and blogger who frequently contributes articles to She decided it would be fun to do a story on blogging cats. After diving head first into our blogosphere, Linda stumbled onto my blog and has gotten to know me over the past couple of months. ... and since to know me is to love me, she included me and two other great blogging cats in her latest article. She put together a fabulous slide show for each of us as well. There's music, captions, the whole nine yards.

So be sure to click on over to Indie Smiles and take a peek at Linda's article and the slide shows.

  25. Huh. The description of indie sounds fairly similar to the description of cat. If you'd said "enjoys tuna" I swear you'd have been reading from the cat section.

  26. The merriest of Christmas' to one of the sweetest cats on earth! Hope Santy Claws brought you each and everything on your list.

  27. Merry Christmas. We hope your day is filled with friends, family and feasting.

    Julie and Poppy Q
