That Darn Cat

So I mentioned picking out pictures for the 2017 calendar the other day.  I had quite a few good pictures to choose from, but sadly was missing the yearly favorite....Comby.  Comby, the hardest working animal on our farm, who somehow always gets posted every year in the calendar sound asleep.

Argh!

I did have a nice picture of Eli though.  He doesn't get much press around here, so that might be nice.



And of course there's darling Betsy.  There were a couple Betsy shots I liked.  One with her and Bullwinkle in the driveway when he was a baby and another with her sitting out with the concrete sheep one evening.


We decided Betsy would be the most wanted cat (in more ways than one!) so Miss September she is!

Until I downloaded pictures yesterday and remembered that I took a picture of Comby sleeping in the greenhouse the other day.


Ah, there he is.  Sound asleep.  Order restored to the universe.

Yeah, right.

Just minutes (I am not kidding) after I booted Betsy from the calendar, my Inbox started blowing up with retweets and likes and more retweets and likes and more retweets...for a picture of Betsy.


If the Cat Shepherd retweets you, you are going to get some attention.  

Which was apparently what Betsy was looking for.

Sigh...

Both cats both look pretty disapproving, don't they.  How on earth did she pull that off?!?  Are cats like elephants and can communicate hundreds of miles?  Do I need to check to see if she has her own Twitter account?  Is she on Facebook, too?!?  This might explain why I have so much trouble with passwords :-o.

I guess, as a democracy (not dictatorship as Betsy thinks ;-), we should vote on it.  Betsy or Comby? The poll should show up in the upper right corner.  Feel free to share this with your friends if you'd like to try to stack the votes towards your favorite candidate ;-).

It's rigged! Voted for Betsy/ Bullwinkle and it stay blank/one vote for comby. Did I want to change my vote? Yes. Clicked comby and a vote for Betsy popped up! :)

I had trouble with that too, but if you click "show results" your vote should then show up...unless it's rigged... BETSY!!!

LannieK said...

(You got a retweet from Bodacious & Ovenmitt! Awesomesauce!!! AND, Yes ~ cats have this teleCAThy thing going, but I'd also check for a Twitter acct!!!

Fiona said...

Is there any reason you cannot put two photos on one page? Just asking :)

Lisa W said...

LOVE the photo of Betsy and BW, but orange cats always win for me. Go, Comby! Or ... a tie ... put both of them in! Or ... start a cat calendar in addition to the sheep calendar :-)

Linda said...

Isn't there a back cover? That way neither cat loses.

My new orange guy Burt says we must have Orange Cat Solidarity. We have voted for Comby but we still love Betsy for all her lamb-loveliness. Oh and Betsy has an orange spot, meow!

DianeOart said...

Oh I can't resist Betsy...and since it's rigged... go BETSY go

thecrazysheeplady said...

We need more OCS!

thecrazysheeplady said...

That may be an option!

Elaine Lim said...

Vote early and vote often????? That sounds like Chicago, right, Jan Baby??!!!! I think they should both be on one page so all is fair!

At last! Two candidates I both like!!! Either deserves more votes then ... well, you know.Make kitty notecards with the photos; then you don't have to choose between them.

Cheryl West said...

Why can't they both be calendar cats? I have to vote for Comby as my daughter will only have orange cats.
Maybe one calendar for sheep and one for cats,dogs, horses and the adventure chickens.

Hi: Just dropping over from Henny's. Your photo of Eli is gorgeous. I have a real love for the greys. Deb

Grey Horse Matters said...

I don't know it's a hard decision they're both awfully cute. I'll cast my vote and keep it secret.

Sheepmom said...

I love them all but that one with Eli and the sweater.....looking straight into the camera.... maybe you should do a card set with the cats!!

Shirley said...

I vote for you going out and taking new photos of all the cats and then we decide :0)
