Please Excuse the Background and Template Changes!

We've got a bit of a construction zone going on here.

Sorry for all the template and background changes. I just can't seem to find one that fits purrfectly!
(If you have a background you think is purrfect, please do tell me!)
I'll have all these issues fixed very soon!

Meow On,

I logged on just now to see that the amazing Chloe, over at Okapi Girl, has nominated this blog for the Liebster award! I am truly flattered.

3. I'm considered one of the cutest and most epic cats on
4. I've had a parasite when I was younger.

Well, considering that I don't really read books, my owner says: Eragon. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

8. If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be?
Well, I can't really have a pet, but it would be fun to have a parrot friend.

9. Tell us what your favorite grade in school has been so far.
Considering I don't go to school, OWNER!!!! "5th grade."

10. Best writing utensil- pen or pencil?
Whichever one is available. But, I would have to say pencil.

11. What's your blogging secret of success?

Tribute To Stewie- The World's Longest Cat

I have some very unfortunate news to deliver. The world record holder for the longest cat, Stewie, has lost the battle against cancer. :(
We will always remember this marvelous cat, and our expressions of awe whenever we saw a picture of him. Stewie was a therapy cat, who visited senoir centers and promoted the Nevada Humane Society. I, Pickles, send my utmost condolences to Stewie's family.

You will always be remembered Stewie, as the biggest Maine Coon with the biggest heart.

CORRECTS NAME TO HENDRICKSON, NOT HENDERSON - FILE - In this file photo taken July 1, 2009, Robin Hendrickson stretches out her Maine Coon cat Stewie outside of her home in Reno, Nev. The Reno owner of the longest domestic cat in the world says Stewie died Monday, Feb. 4, 2013 after a yearlong battle with cancer. Guinness World Records declared Stewie the record-holder in August 2010, measuring 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail. (AP Photo/Reno Gazette-Journal, Andy Barron)
