Mary’s Nine Likes. Episode 18. …
Cynthia: Oh wow! I had no idea. Today is National Cat Day, Marcy.
Marcy: I thought every day was National Cat Day. If it’s not, it should be.
Cynthia: And look, if you live in Seattle, San Francisco, or New York, you can have a kitten delivered to your office for 15 minutes of playtime. Uber teamed up with Cheezburger and the ASPCA for this event to celebrate National Cat Day.
Marcy: Sometimes I wonder if you are even speaking English.
Cynthia: The $20 you pay goes to a local shelter and the kittens are brought to you by a shelter volunteer. This is such great idea. The kittens get valuable playtime and exposure to people who may want to adopt them. The shelters get some money. And the office workers get to de-stress. They should do this every day!

OH! And cupcakes come with the kittens – from Ace of Cakes.
Kittens AND Cupcakes! Perfect!
Marcy: Wait, kittens?! I thought I told you never to trust a kitten.
Cynthia: Oh, Marcy. Really now.
Marcy: Kittens are sneaky. They push their way into your hearts and then they take over the house. They eat your food, hoard the sunspots, and whap us adult cats on the head. Look at Penelope Kitten.
Marcy: There she is. Sitting in the cat-grass plant that Hamlet and Scooter are trying to eat. It’s an outrage the way kittens just take over and turn you humans into drooling piles of mush.
Cynthia (drooling): Sooooo cute!
Marcy: Ugh. Wake me up when it’s over.
Marcy stalks off to claim her sunspot.
*The kittens in the pic above are indeed looking for their forever homes. They are spayed/neutered, litter boxed trained, have all the necessary shots, and are sweet and friendly and awesome. They were rescued by the wonderful Dylan of Dylan Kendall Home Accessories. Please contact me if interested in adopting a kitten. Or two. Or three.
Cynthia: Love this photo from Paris Vogue circa 1969.

Cynthia: It was for Bally Switzerland – a shoe company that has been around since 1854. And that loafer is so beautiful. Loafers are very trendy right now but I have yet to see one so elegant with a perfect heel like the one in the picture.
And of course, that kitten is so sweet!
Marcy: You don’t really think that so called “sweet” kitten is really saying “I love you” to the giantess in the photo, do you?
Cynthia: Sure. Why not?
Marcy (chuckling): You humans are so gullible when it comes to kittens. How long do you think her stockings remained free of kitty tracks, kitty snags, and kitty holes?
Cynthia: Oh. Yes. I see what you’re saying. The kitten is not really looking up at the giantess. Instead, she is staring at her tights. Rather maniacally too, I might add.
Marcy: I told you, Cindy, it is always in your best interest to never trust a kitten. Just don’t.
Cynthia: I guess you’re right. I wonder how long into the shoot before little kitty went on the Stocking Onslaught?
Marcy: Actually, the real question is whether the giantess survived being a kitten rock climbing wall and exactly how much blood was involved.
Cynthia shudders in terror. Marcy peacefully curls up for her 2nd afternoon nap.
Marcy: Cindy! I must have a Paw Footed Bowl! I must.

Cynthia: Just adorable! Dylan, of Dylan Kendall Home Accessories, is doing an Indiegogo campaign to bring her Paw Footed Bowls to market. Just in time for the holiday season.
The bowls are great for a cat or dog’s digestion since they are raised off the ground. This eliminates severe spine curvature while eating and diminishes bloating. Better posture also means less stress on the joints. And, since they are made from a premium non toxic stoneware that does not contain lead or cadmium, they are super safe. Non-toxic and non-porous. So no harboring of bacteria like plastic bowls.
Dylan Kendall is famous for her Footed Bowls line – the Efeet Collection. See here…

Cynthia: And here…

Cynthia: Dylan is also an incredible and compassionate cat advocate and cat rescuer. All of the kittens in this post are up for adoption. They come spayed/neutered/updated on shots/FIV negative/healthy. Here’s a close up of Dylan and two adoptable cutie-pie cats.

Marcy: Hmpf… I really don’t care about those rugrats. They better not come with my new bowl or they will be IN my new bowl as a snack.
Cynthia: Marcy! Not necessary!
Marcy: I would look SO great eating snacks out of a Paw Footed Bowl. I could have live salmon filet in the Tiny Bowl … live mouse burger in the Medium Cat Bowl …live turkey pie in the Dog Bowl …
Cynthia: Marcy! Yuck. Stop it.
Marcy: What? I was just saying they would be even more delicious in a Paw Footed Bowl.
Cynthia: I am going to get you one. Calm down. Do you want your name inscribed in it too?
Marcy: Yes. No one is allowed to eat out of my bowl! Especially this one. He looks like trouble.

Cynthia: Actually, he looks a little like you.
Marcy: And these ones. I don’t trust them. Never trust a kitten. They’re pushy. And you people are pushovers for them.

Cynthia: Oh don’t be so selfish, Marcy. They are soooo sweet!!!
*We have a Dylan Kendall Footed Bowl and just love it!
So do the cats. But – I couldn’t get a good picture of one of our cats eating out of the bowl because they are temperamental modeling subjects and would not stay still. Especially Marcy. And, I am not a good photographer. Examples:
|Scooter and a Footed Bowl|
Marcy: Is that Scooter Cat? How dare you? This is my blog!
|Marcy Eating Out of a Footed Bowl|
Marcy: That is not my best side, Cindy. You’re fired. Where’s my agent? I need to review my contract.
Cynthia: Marcy, if you want your own Paw Footed Bowl, you need to let me use this pic.
Marcy: I WANT A BOWL.
Cynthia: Great. I just ordered it!
*So – in a nutshell – If you are needing a cat (or two or three) and live near Los Angeles adopt one of these cutie-pie kittens. I mean really – who doesn’t need a cat? Everyone needs a cat!
*If you are interested in some Paw Footed Bowls – for you, your cats, or your dogs – and live anywhere in the world please check out Dylan’s page on Indiegogo.
