Timmy and Einsteins Cat Scout Crafts

Me and Einstein spent last week at Cat Scout Summer Camp. 
It sure was fun Timmy. I loved Camp Curry at Yellowstone National Park.
It was amazing and we meowed about the sights in last Fridays post Letters from Camp.
Today we wanted to meow about crafts and a very impawtent knot every cat should now in case of emergency. Take it away Timmy.
Thanks Einstein. A Bowline knot is handy for many things but it is what Fireman and Rescue Cats use to save kittens or silly humans from holes after they fall in.
Or maybe pull a human up a cliff after their car runs off. They do that from drinking too much of that hootch stuff.
True, very true. Unfortunate that they cant enjoy a good nip of nip.

Anymeow. A Bowline knot is handy for other things too. Here is how to make one so follow along kitties.
1. Build a rabbit hole by forming a loop. 2. Out hops the rabbit
3. The rabbit hops behind the tree.

4. The rabbit hops back down the hole. Pull tight.
You now have a loop that will not tighten. That way you don't
squish the kitten or human or thing you are pulling up.

Thanks Timmy
Sure thing Einie. Now you take it away.

We both made Garrison Caps with a sharp red accent. Furst
you cut the pattern. There were two rectangle and two longer
pieces that were like a banana if the center was straight. 

We used a back stitch to put the two rectangles and long bits together. The rectangles are the middle part you see.

The long bits made up the outside as you can see here. See how the ends go down. Very sharp.
Umm, Einie, you furgot the "how to" photos didn't you.
Sowwy. But I will make up fur it

By modeling of course. I look very sharp!

Yes you do. Now I will show our other craft project. We made an Infinity Scarf fur Dad.

Furst you cut the bottom off of an old T-shirt. It is a big loop so an infinity. Something really cool is that when you pull the loop really hard the cut part rolls under. No need to hem. Then you use spry dye to add colors and maybe some stencils. Ours were nautical. 

The stencils were difficult to use but we learned a lot and the next one will be a masterpiece. Some of the other Scouts really had amazing looking scarfs. 

Hey I was going to model it!
Lets let who it was made fur model it

Thanks fellows. I think I will go stock up on free cat food.
Really, neat. Where is that Dad
Oh... Anywhere I guess... See ya later guys.

See you Dad.
Timmy you don't think...
Nah, Dad is as honest as Abe Lincoln. 
Yeah, But...

Letters from Camp & Friday with Fitz

Hi Friends Toby here. Timmy and Einstein are at Cat Scouts Summer Camp and sent us letters. We were so glad to hear from them. 

Hi Family. 
I am having a super time with Timmy and our friends. Sorry fur taking a while to write but we are having soooo much fun we get back to our bunk and crash. We have some photos our friends took of the action.

Here we are arriving at the park. My gal Shoko from The Canadian Cats is also a Cat Scout. How cool is that! Timmy's gal Dora is also a Scout with her sisfur Tiger and brofur Trouble.
We have been having such fun.

Here we are with our good pal Andy. We all got really
nice shirts for memories. Wowzer.

I hope you all are waiting fur us to come home and Rumpy I miss you my big brofur. Try and be good. MOL

It looks like Einstein is having a lot of fun. Here is Timmy's letter.

Hi Family
Me and Einie have been having oodles of fun. We have great photos as I think each Scout has a huge album at home of their adventures just like we do!

This is the area where we have our Bunks

Here is Shoko catching a fish. Her and Maggie had a great dinner that night. They share a bunk as we can only do co-ed if married. Cat Scouts is a family oriented organization after all.

The swimming was marvelous. Mirror Lake is full
of clear mountain water. Check out our cool bathing suits

The hike to the top of Half Dome was arduous but worth
every paw step. What a view. Shoko was right there with us.
(She was hard to keep up with)

When we got back there was a head check. I hid under
the bed and got Einie worried until he saw my tailio sticking out.

Here we are at night laughing and talking till we all got tired.
We have been getting good sleep from all the hiking and fun.

Now I have something to tell you all but, please, do not get worried. The Cat Scout High Council has elected a group of scouts to join the very illustrious Order of the Arrowhead. Only those who have proven to be great cats and scouts, through actions and merit, are asked to try out. 

Myself, Scout Pete S, Scout Ali, Scout Felix, Scout Maggie, Scout Obi and Scout Shoko have been chosen. 

The trial is very dangerous. We are sent  into the woods with only a loincloth, compass, a match and an egg. We will be alone and in the wild exposed to Mountain Lions, Bears, Snakes, Spiders, Big Foot and Vishus Cat Eating Deer! 

This is all I will be wearing tonight in the cold woods.
Tell Dad that I love him. Please Purr fur me tonight and,
hopefully I will call you tomorrow when my ordeal is over.

That's all fur now. I will be home Sunday night Bast willing.
Your loving brofur
Timmy Tomcat

So there you have the two letters from our brofurs. Thanks to my gal Miss Fitz fur giving Friday to the boys
I was happy to. Love you fellows
Thanks Fitz. I will now...
Hey hold on a minute!

Who gets Timmy's stuff when he is eaten by a Vishus Deer who will pull out his insides and share them with the Bear and...
RUMPY Shush! Oh my cat! Purr that Doesn't happen Rumpy
