Fun Building our Cardwood Derby Racer

Our friend Rudy is convalescing from knee surgery. You can see the post here and on the left top of the blog. Please send him purrs and prayers. Thank Mew!

Today we have a Big Exciting Post about building our Cardwood Derby Racer!
It was such fun Timmy. This is my furst Cardwood Derby at Cat Scouts, and, it just got better when Shoko arrived to help out. My heart was going pitta-pat, pitta-pat, sigh.
Don't chu furgettin my gal. Havin Kali here waz grate an Cat Scout Flat Mango pitched in too'z.
You bet Buddy. Family and friends worked together to get our entry to the starting line. 
Mango may have had the hardest job of trying to keep Rumpy awake and working. MOL. 

Dat gurl reely haz a gud eye fur cuttin.
You bet Buddy

Thanks Mango fur doing the paint and design work
You're welcome Timmy

Einstein was nervous about finishing on time and started
bossing all of us around.
Of course that fell flat with a certain family member

Einstein, SHUSH! The motor is all done you
silly floofy kitty you.

You should thank Dad for helping keep us going 
with tasty treats.
Thanks Dad, Thanks Fitz
You are welcome Einstein

Kali helped out by keeping Buddy calm and focused

Shoko did the same fur Einstein

  3. What a great car! I love the use of the cat-food tins. Ingenious.

  4. We enjoyed helping out Einstein and Timmy. It was great fun. Your racer is #1 in our books. Yes, ok, we like ours too but it seems scary. Dad is taking a lesson from your tin wheels. Very creative guys.

    Kitty Kisses,

  7. Your racer came out great. My hubby noticed the cat food can tires- very clever. I love the video too- you kitties are a lot of fun.

  8. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!! Love it love it love it. This was perfect! That video and the sound of your engine...I flat out LOVE this!!! xoxox

  9. Wow! Your car is so cool! We really like the "tires."

  10. Good teamwork, fellas! It seems that the lady pit crew had the most effect! Nice wheels!

  11. We all think your car is one of the very best. Mau thinks the Scouts with dads helping always make the best cars. Our mom's construction skills have improved, but she's still not great about design. Mom has just posted Mau's car on our blog. Great job riding in the car, Timmy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
