Junebug Wins!

Junebug has been elected as the 2011 Cat of the Year!  Thank you to all that voted this year, the race was closer than in the past, Natalie and Alex were in it until the end.  However, Natalie, might point to the low voter turnout.  I can’t help but wonder if civic-minded readers of Montana Wildlife Gardener have been occupied with the GOP nominations or something. 

Junebug now wears the crown as the only two-time Cat of the Year champion (Junebug won the title by a landslide in 2010).  I would have posted the news sooner, but the little Bug is facing some health issues, and we wanted to make sure this announcement was made when she could enjoy her victory.

We announced the award this weekend.  Natalie had no comment.  Alex ran manically across the room, jumped and clung to the side of our favorite cloth settee.  It was as if he had no idea what we were talking about.  Junebug played it cool; cool as the other side of the pillow.  
Junebug waits patiently for her reward.  Yes, she is that small.
For her victory, she was rewarded with her favorite between meal snack- diced venison trim, and a small bowl of blood.
Victory in 2011!  Does Junebug taste a three-peat for 2012?
Thank you all for voting, and support your local Humane Society, or ours!
