Happy 15th Birthday, Rocky!

Alana here today!

We’re so pleased to say Happy 15th Birthday to Rocky today!

To celebrate, we’d like to do a little outline of his lifetime highlights thus far. In no particular order, except chronological, here they are:

Rocky comes to live with us, 1999

Being that our digital camera in 1999 was fairly, um, basic, we don’t have too many photos from then. Luckily, the technology jumped quickly and we have plenty more from 2000 and beyond!

After this, Rocky began his film career. His first few movies weren’t great successes. Here he stars in his second film where he plays Grandma in “The Wolf.”

 

But his earlier films paved the road to his greatest hit: CATalogue.

After that, he went on to star in The Inheritance, a mild success, and then went on to star as Guy LaFurrr in “CHATastrophe.”

Le purrr.

So far, his first 15 years have been awesome, and we hope his next fifteen are even better!

All kidding aside, it’s been a difficult year for Rocky. He’s suffered through some health issues, and while things are sometimes up and sometimes down, he’s still with us, and we are so thankful for each day he’s here by our side.

We love you, Rocky. Happy Birthday to my special little guy.

Love,

MomFOD.

BREAKING NEWS: We’re In CatDance 2014!

You guys! We are officially able to announce that we are Finalists in CATDANCE 2014!!!

Oh man, I’ve been sitting on that announcement for three months and couldn’t wait to tell you. This will be our second time in the CatDance festival. Our first movie, Catalogue, went from there to the Internet Cat Video Festival, and it helped me launch this blog, and to do all the other things I’ve been doing to help homeless animals.

Best part? I co-star in the new film with a much bigger role than in my previous movie. Rocky, of course, is still the big star. It also features MomFOD (Alana Grelyak) and Kris Flanagan, both from Catalogue, as well as Theodore Hahn, and was directed by DadFOD (Michael Gabriele.) Niles and Mrs. Peabody are also in it, and there’s even a very small cameo from Doodle, but you have to watch all the way to the end to find her. And we have a band.

This is WAY bigger than last year’s festival because the winner gets $50,000! No, I did NOT miscount my zeros. That’s a lot of moolah, but in order to win it, we need the people’s vote! And we would love to have your support. Our movie is called The Inheritance and you can vote once each day. Every vote gives you a chance to win lots of prizes from Freshstep, so there’s something in it for you, too.  Voting starts Saturday the 18th at noon over here on the CatDance page.

One of "Greg's" many needs.

Therefore, dear readers, I ask for your support. Please, vote for “The Inheritance.” 

And don’t forget to check out our new web series CATastrophes, launching the 22nd of January! Every film will feature a rescue and spotlight topics in adoption.

Love,
