Cynthia: Marcy! Marcy! Marcy! There’s a new cat star on Instagram!
Marcy (excitedly): You mean I’m finally famous?
Marcy grabs an acceptance speech she’s been working on from under the cat scratcher.
Marcy: Ahem… ahem… Hmmmpf… ahem… ahem…
A few minutes pass as Marcy coughs up a hairball in preparation for her speech.
Marcy: First of all I’d like to thank –
Cynthia: Awww… I’m sorry, Marcy.
Marcy: What? My time’s already up? Hairballs shouldn’t count as part of the time limit.
Cynthia: No. It’s just… well … it’s not you who is famous. It’s this orange tabby named Diego.
Cynthia: Yes. He rose to supercat stardom and fashionista favorite quite quickly, in fact. You can check out his Instagram modelling pics at WhatDiegoWore. His owner, Michele Jaret is his agent, photographer, and publicist.
Marcy: Cindy, you’re my agent and photographer and publicist. Where’s my aCATemy award? Where’s my fashion spread in Vogue? Why am I not on the cover of People? I’m taking back your 10 percent agent fee.
Cynthia: Ten percent of what? You haven’t made any money yet!
Cynthia: Well, maybe if you stopped being a diva and let me photograph you instead of running away every time I take out the camera to shoot you, maybe we’d be further along?
Marcy (dramatically): See?! You want to shoot me.
Cynthia: That’s an expression! It means to photograph you!
Marcy (even more dramatically): Photographs steal the soul! So now you want to shoot me AND steal my soul?
Cynthia: You are driving me crazy!!
Marcy drops the drama act.
Marcy: Seriously though. My John Travolta name is Monty Cunningwham.
Hope you recovered from the hairball, Marcy.
I think you and Diego would make a cute couple. Why not see if you can meet him?
i did, thank you. i'm working on another one at the moment.
not sure if i want to meet diego. orange tabbies my look cute but they are notoriously simpleminded. kind of like the hot but dumb jock in high school. a little too heavy with the people pleasing tendencies for my taste. he'd be a better boyfriend for penelope kitten. i like henri.
You are right! Marcy and Murphy are two peas in a pod. Or two pets scared of a tripod. That kitty is cute. I still like regular ol' pet shots. I don't get photoshop. I do sometimes agree with Marcy about the stealing of your soul. In almost every outfit shoot I do, there is one outtake where my eyes look like demon eyes. So creepy! It is because our lens is breaking and is too slow, but freaky! Marcy would never come out from under the bed! : )
Ohhhhh… I get demon eyes too sometimes. And Marcy – all the time. The thing is – I am not even setting up a tripod. She's afraid of my iphone! What a scaredy cat!
Yeah, where is her fashion spread in vogue??? I would love it if they put her on the cover…would liven things up! 🙂
thank you, merrie! i'd put the super in super model.
I am feeling like Marcy needs her own IG account – she has rise to super IG stardom too!
Do you mean Instagram, Lisa? If so – woo hoo – we finally set one up. I am still figuring out how it works but I do have about 10 pics up.
