A couple of months ago I was among the hundreds, if not thousands, of people to apply to become the very first , a one year, $50,000 salary, postion in which the person promotes Purina, and attends, and writes about, Cat related issues, and events. across the country.
Earlier this week, the notication process began, and final choices were made, and e-mails sent.
I was notified that I was one of an unspecified number of Runners-Up! ;-D
The message was humbling, and inspiring:
"Kiril, you are amazing. In fact, we think you're the cat's meow. Unfortunately, you weren't selected as the Purina® Cat Chow® Correspondent.
Thanks for letting us get to know you better. We learned a few things about you:
1. You tell a great story.
2. You are really talented.
3. You have a boundless passion for cats."
What did the Cats think of all this? After all it is the material on their blog that impressed the folks reviewing my application. ;-D
Young Elvira shares her thoughts, some old photos of Nikita, and I, a photo of the e-mail, and thoughts about the future.
Thoughts that speak for me as well. ;-D
Nikita will have some thoughts of his own as well.
Nikita came into my life in 1998, not long after his birth, and we began blogging in 2002.
Where we are headed next I don't know. ;-D
