I’ve decided to do something I don’t ordinarily do: Listen to my husband. It’s strange, I know. But hear him out.
I think he’s right. So I’m taking my blog in a new direction. I think kitties are the way to go. The only way to go. If that’s what the peoples want, that’s what I’ll give them. One Funny Motha is transitioning into a blog dedicated to all kitties all the time.
I’ll probably need a new name though. I thought about One Funny Kitty, but I’m not sure. Plus, I have two kitties. I could do Two Funny Kitties, but it’s just not the same. Then there’s Two Cute Kitties. Or Two Too Cute Kitties. Maybe I’ll just stick with KittyRama.
A KittyRama blog makes perfect sense. I know it won’t be a complete breeze, and there’s some competition out there, but I think I can do this. My kitties are cute. My kitties are smart. My kitties are funny, and who doesn’t like cute, smart, funny kitties? Only psychopaths, that’s who, and they’re not my target market.
My kitties could really take the internet by storm. Think Grumpy Cat only not.
I once heard a story on This American Life about a guy who came up with the idea of the Puppy Channel. This was before Animal Planet and The Dog Whisperer and My Cat from Hell and the Puppy Bowl and Too Cute Kitties. He was a man before his time. He was also a man who liked to have the T.V. on all the time but wanted something soothing and uplifting to watch. He would use it to decompress after work or like a place holder in between other shows, and he was confident other people would too.
This show, though, was not the kitty and puppy shows of today. The creator envisioned the channel to display puppies only in their natural clumsy state, running and tumbling, with no narration. The only sound would be soft background music to enhance the experience of viewing frolicking puppies.
Sadly, the guy couldn’t sell his idea. Sure, he toiled for a couple of years, arranging meetings with network executives and trying to promote it. He and his wife even wrote and recorded a theme song for the show. It went something like this: Puppies, puppies, puppies, puppies, puppies, puppies, PUUUPIEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Imagine jazz hands in your head.)
But the world wasn’t ready for the Puppy Channel. And neither were the advertisers. The world’s changed, though, and now’s the time. At least for kitties. Without music. On the internet.
So today I’m unveiling…KittyRama.
It wasn’t easy though. Ever since embarking on this project I’ve had a tumultuous working relationship with Kitty 1 and Kitty 2. It turns out kitties have a pretty poor work ethic. They also have abominable communication skills. Instead of using their words when they don’t like something, they use their claws.
But I’ve learned you can accomplish almost anything with enough kitty treats, and I think it’s finally coming together. We’ve worked through most of our issues. Still nearly every day kitty manages to trick me.
We continue to work on building trust in our relationship. I won’t give up on the kitties because as their manager I recognize their tremendous untapped talent. And they won’t give up on me because they can’t. I’m their primary food source.
I’m trying to add other things to the act, too, aside from the shade trick, but it’s slow going. I really don’t know why the kitties don’t want to jump through a ring of fire. I’m going to reward them with Beachside Crunch Party Mix snack!
My kitty can also do this…
I think we could really make a go of this. And if the act doesn’t pan out…
I tried it first with my kids, but it didn’t work. That’s when I discovered
If I knew that, you know how much trouble (and money) that would have saved me?
