Mariodacat - Weekly Featured Blogger

Today we feature a kitty that needs no introducion.  Ladies & gentlemen, Mariodacat from Mario's Meowsings!

This is such an honor to participate in your blog. We always just assumed it was strictly for doggies until you said something. Thank you so much for opening it up to we kitties too. I'm very happy to be part of your great community.

Mario actually adopted us 3 years ago. In fact, that is one of my favorite posts - see link at end of story.

Over a 48-year-span, Mario is our fourth cat. Because we are senior citizens and both have Parkinson's Disease, we asked our daughter if we were to get another cat, would she and her husband take our cat in the event something happened to us. Well, obviously, they said yes, because we now have Mario.


While we loved our previous 3 cats and 1 dog very much, Mario is that extra special cat that doesn't come along very often. He is extra loving and friendly to everyone who enters this household. When the doorbell rings, he's right there to greet people. Once they sit down, he'll hop on the first lap available, make himself comfortable (weather you like cats or not) and purr for you. Mario just charms his way into your heart, even if you are not very fond of cats.

We've been through a lot together. Three weeks after adopting him he started his first round with tooth problems. To make a long story short, before he had been with us for a year, he had to have all his teeth pulled. Another favorite post. He now uses his blog and the toothie story as a type of reference for any Twitter/blogger pal who is starting to have a problem with their teeth. We call him our $l0,000 moggie kitty.


Since both my husband and I have Parkinson's Disease, our future is bleak. But getting thru the struggles of daily living is so much easier with Mario around. He brings true joy into our lives. I can easily say he is the best cat we've ever had or could ever hope to have again.

I'm only listing two favorite posts from Mario's blog because they are rather long:

My Toothie Story - 3 posts in one and on it's own page for easy reference.

Life After Adoption - (The CallMeGraham story)

You might find my own personal blog, Shuffling Along With PD interesting, especially if you know someone with Parkinson's disease, have PD yourself, or know or have some other handicapping condition.  
I have to say that if your a pet blogger or active on Twitter you're probably already familiar with Mario, but even if you are go over and tell him hello.  He is one pawsome kitty.

If you're interested in being in the Pet Blogs United spotlight, and that includes kitties, horsies or any other kind of pet blogger, drop us a line at PBU at comcast dot net.

Mario looks a bit like the kittie I grew up with, Oscar. It's so nice to hear that he is making such a difference in the lives of his owners.

I am very glad your daughter agreed to care for Mario if needed, because it's obvious he's right where he needs to be. Great story! Thanks for posting Oskar!

Mario is one of our very favorite kitties in the blogging world and his parents are the very best too. Mom's other blog is excellent too. You picked a good one to have featured. Love this post.

Terrific to see you here Mario! What a wonderful kitty you are. Your family is as lucky to have you in their lives as you are to have them in yours! {{{Coonhound hugs!}}}

I'm a little emotional about the Parkinson's but I wish you all the best.

I used to have a kitty but I love goggies more. My beau is the kitty person. He always gets scratched.

Mario is one lucky kitteh. I love your eccentric header by the way.

Mario and his Mom are awesome! They are such great friends and help so many animals. We are so happy to see them featured. We are very happy Mario and his Humans found each other and can share that special love they have for each other.

We meant to stop by earlier this week but had computer problems and long work hours. We think Mario is the best. You couldn't find a better kitty to interview. His mom & dad are great people too, and we're so sorry they have such horrible problems. It doesn't seem fair. We're glad they have such a wonderful cat like Mario to help them.
