Last Tuesday, October 15, Paul and I had the honor of attending The Friskies in New York City. Gracey’s video The Tiniest Tiger’s Snow Adventure was a finalist in the CatVenture category and we would find out later that night if we would be taking home the golden Catuette.
Early that evening, all the finalists gathered in the hotel lobby and walked a short distance to Arena, the venue for The Friskies. During the cocktail hour from 6:00pm- 7:00 pm, we mingled with the other finalists, chatted about our videos and had our photos taken.
Everyone at Friskies was super nice and made sure all of our needs were met and then some taking very good care of us the entire time. We listened to our instructions on what to do if our video received the most votes. We would be called to the stage to accept the golden Catuette and share a 30 second acceptance speech.
And then I got nervous. I am cat like in the fact that I like to see but not be seen. Heading to the stage gave me the jitters. What if you fall down, what if…what if…. what if.
