    Kentucky Derby Catmobile Fun

    Dear PT Kitty Friends ... Cassie would like to know if the Catmobile and its guests are planning to go to the Kentucky Derby this year! It is on May 3 and 4 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. There are also other interesting things to do there. She would like to see the horses (of course!) and nibble on some cat-mint. And try on hats!

    So, if the Catmobile is going, Cassie would like to join in.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I'm sad because I don't have an excited kitty who wants to join the fun. I'll be watching this thread though!!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    My boys, as usual, will be there. Will Kimba be needing his bagpipes? Mac will be bringing his glove, bat, and ball in case Frankie wants to get in a little practice.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Oh, yes, Kimba should definitely bring the pipes. Bob and Elmer have been practicing "My Old Kentucky Home" on theirs.

    My gang are raring to go as it were. Frankie never leaves home without his baseball gear so would love to play with Mac and any other kitty who wants to join in.

    The girls can't wait to shop for the big hats that are a 'must' on Derby Day!!!

    They are looking forward to meeting the new horses that will be there this year.

    The best part will be catching up with all their friends and meeting new ones.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    Hey everyone,

    Ed and Tucker are ready to give some guided tours around the city and race track.

    Mint juleps are the drink of the Derby and hopefully this irritating weather will be over and done with before saturday and the "big race".

    I think a stop for a Hot Brown sandwich should be th first stop on the tour!!!!

    Luke and Leia, and brother Harley too, would just love this, but I think maybe they are a wee bit young for gallivanting yet. They just turned 5 months old. Besides, Princess Leia has an appointment on Friday that she isn't even aware of - out come the grown up kitty parts. She's gonna hate me for sure, and Luke and Harley will need to be here to comfort her hurt feelings - and belly! Maybe they can make some future trip.

    Thanks, Barry

    Louisville is the home of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat company, we also have a minor league team affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds. Slugger Field is a beautiful baseball park here in town.

    Tonight is the Steamboat Race and tomorrow is the Pegasus Parade! They will also pick the starting spots for the Derby tonight at 5 p.m.

    There is tons to do here leading up to the Race!!!!

    I think we'll have to squeeze in a trip to go hat shopping too!

    ----------

    One thing about the derby is that it's not just one race on Saturday. The Oaks Races are held on Friday night and there are something like 13 races on Saturday.....

    Hi fellow kitties,
    If it's not too late, I'd love to join all of you for the trip. I never met a real horsie before and it sounds like fun. My fiddle is being polished up and tuned to purrfection, my lessons are going very well. Right now I'm learning to play "Run For the Roses" by Dan Fogelberg, a quite pretty song about horsies. What do I need to bring along with my fiddle and baseball stuff? If I'll need sunglasses please let me know so I can tell Meowmie to get me some at the mall.

    Oh Inka, I'm soooo happy to know that you're coming too. I can't wait to meet you in purrson and I hope we'll have some down time so we can get to know each other.

    I really hope it's not too late to join all of you. We all had so much fun on my first Catmobile trip and I can't wait to do it again. Hope to see all of you soon.

    Your bud,
    Amigo
