A New Mission!

I am one lucky cat to have so many fans. And for that I have to thank the very fine librarian at Berthoud Elementary. This is a woman who knows quality literature when she sees it! That’s why she’s read my story to lots and lots of kids and even let Cindy come in to meet them and talk to them about writing my book.

Since all these kids love me so much, I’ve decided to let them participate in my blog for a while. I think I’ll call it Operation Share the Glory!

This mission has two parts. The first part is called “Ask Flash” and I’m going to start it today! Every Friday I will print several questions from my Berthoud Elementary fans and answer them right here for all the world to see!

The second part of my new mission is still top-secret. But check back often, it will be coming soon!

And now . . . drum roll, please . . . the very FIRST Ask Flash column! So here we go!

Cassidy wants to know, “Why is purple your favorite color?”

That’s easy. Purple is the color of royalty and all cats should be treated like kings, especially ME!

Derik asks, “How many lifes do you have left, Flash?”

Hmm. That one’s not so easy. We cats start with nine lives, but we don’t always know if we lose one. Let me give you an example. Say a cat gets hit by a car, but his humans rush him to the vet and he doesn’t die. He could be pretty sure he is down to eight lives. But say the car would have hit him if he hadn’t ducked between the wheels in the nick of time. Does that count as a life? Hard to tell. So I can’t really tell you how many lives I have left, because I’m not sure.

And finally, an anonymous question. “Does Lucy like soup?”

Lucy is a butt-sniffing DOG, and besides that she’s the villain in my story. So I have no idea if she likes soup. And I really don’t care. But knowing dogs, they eat anything.

So there you have it! I bet you had no idea how interesting this was going to be, did you? Come back next Friday for more Ask Flash!
