Mariodacat Rivals GB Packers For News Coverage

Pawtograph of  famous Mariodacat
Hi Pals,

Yesterday was such an exciting day dat I still can't believe everything that has happened.

A photographer from Associated Press came to our house last Thursday to take pictures of our family for a story Romeothecat's human wanted to do on my tooth problems.   Romeo does Friday Rescue stories in his bloggy.  Just on a whim, I sent mine in and it was published in RomeoTheCat's blog.    That was amazing because everyone knows RomeoTheCat - he's famous for all his charity work for animal rescues. 

Then Sue Manning, a friend of Romeo's human, contacted us and said she wanted to do a story on Stomotitis and could she send a photographer out from Associated Press.   She asked a few questions so she could write her story.  OMC!   Can you believe it - Associated Press - only famous people are mentioned in the AP.

Then today we actually found two newspapers on line that have already picked up the story.   The Greenwich Times was the first one we saw the article in and then just a few minutes ago Sue Manning sent an email and said it appeared in the The Washington Post - Oh My Cat - The Washington Post.   Just click on both names and you can see the article along with the picture of my family.  (Sorry, I can't print the picture because I don't have permission to use it  You'll have to click on the links in order to see my family, and an unhappy cat because I was being held against my will.)  Sue said this is just the beginning of the coverage.  More and more newspapers will pick up the story.

Now it seems I'm famous everywhere except in Green Bay.  You see, in two days the Green Bay Packer's play their first game of the season, and they are having a big shindig in the parking lot of Lambeau Field - a rock concert in fact.   The local newspaper is full of  Packer News, but not even a mention of my name.   pffft!   And to think I helped the Packers win the Super Bowl in February.  (You can see that story at It's Official, I'm Retiring From The Packers Team).  This year they are on their own!  If they can't share space in the newspaper for a little moggie kitty, I can't help dem win! 

Special thanks to Sue Manning and Romeo's ooman for all this notoriety!  Who would have ever thought this little kitty would hit the big time!

Mario

Now Mario, it's not the Packers who are in charge of the news. You musn't blame them. It's that silly news media. I'm sure many Packe loving families have cats and would be very interested in you news. Congratulations on the awesome news coverage. Your one of the special ones for sure.
