This afternoon, we drove all the way to the American Royal center. We stood in line outside the building for about 20 minutes, waiting to get tickets. We forked over $17 and fought our way though crowds, stopping only to pet a hedgehog, a ferret, and a chihuahua wearing a pink tutu. We endured the first 45 minutes of the cat show, which was so crowded we had to stand in the back. Jay and I took turns hoisting our 36-pound child over the crowd so she could see. The big highlight of the cat performance was a bell-ringing competition between a cat and a trained chicken named Indiana Jones. (Winner: The chicken)
Then it was time: The moment I'd been waiting for all week long. And this .... was it. This was it, people.
The best part of this video is when the cat who is supposed to be supervising the tip jar falls off of his/her stool.
