Kitty surprise (+ A CONTEST!)

Dear Optimists,

I used to have a cat. Like many others, really. He was the cutest thing in the whole world, and he thought the same of me. But sometimes he wasn’t all that adorable.

Feivel used to sit on the door (yup, on top of the door). It was his favourite spot.

However, it didn’t take him long to conceive a terror plan. He was one of those cats.

What happened next doesn’t come as a surprise:
You’d think I’d learned, but no. Every time I entered my room I was greeted by Feivel this way. Awesome cat. May he rest in peace.


Now to the CONTEST!
Answer following question in the comments by Friday and we’ll draw a winner on Saturday! The winner will receive a virtual Optimist drawing of him-/herself!

Two cartoon sounds were used in this post. Wherefrom do these sounds originate?

Leave your answer and remember to add your email, so we can get a hold of you!

    1. YOU ARE GODDAMN QUICK! Awesome! (But I wonder if you’re right… hmm ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
      (Cheers, mate! I’m glad, took me an hour or so!!)

  1. Um…I think Cowabunga originated from Howdy Doody. As for Snikt from the sound of Wolverine’s blades emerging. I am going to cross my fingers until Friday in the hopes that I win. It will be fun to see if I can wash dishes with crossed fingers….

  2. Oooooo i sooooo want to win this!!!!!
    My answer is a bit more in depth because i want it so bad. Both were two of my brothers favourite tv shows as a kid, and being an older brother, he would often have the controller, so i would have to sit and watch too!
    Snikt is from wolverine from x men! I used to say snickers whilst trying to do the same to my brother to get the remote back haha. Why am i admitting this?
    And Cowa bunger is from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Heros in a half shell!!!) Turtle power!
    P.s. love your blog. I always come out of it smiling like this ๐Ÿ˜€ not ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Haha! I also want to win, but smiling and laughing reading the comments and your blogs is such a WIN-WIN for me already/

    Reminiscing… I love TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and though I am a female, with 2 more sisters, we love to watch it together. It was the very first time I got curious about PIZZAS too.

    1. Aww, so cute! โค Thanks!
      And I like the fact that it came with a story ๐Ÿ™‚

      What about the other sound?
