weekend specials popular at the Cardinal Cat Cafe

excuse me, I’m new here, but are the specials usually this popular?


Yes, they’re as popular as popcorn at the Gator Bowl.

    I have no idea what the gator bowl is, and I am not going to google it. I supose it is football? But I know what a child looks like when they are having total fun, so bring on the gators. And, as far as the cats? Cats are extraordinarily brilliant judges of character. They watch, and hide, (smart creatures). They only like people they consider worthy, and very few are worthy of a cat’s genuine affection. You just passed both the cats and the childs test of a good person. What more could you possibly want in life?

    • You know, Cindy, you are right – I’ve really had more in this life than I could have ever dreamed of having. I realize almost every day now how much I owe my parents and grandparents for the sacrifices they made for me to live with these blessings…
      As for the Gator Bowl, you are too funny – it was a football game – in the South football is a form of religion – Ella loved her very first game which had a lot to do with the pageantry, people, and mostly, popcorn.

    That photo caught her at the perfect second. I can’t tell if she’s more focused on the game or the popcorn!

    You are clearly being taken over by cats. You can’t say you weren’t warned!
