For those of you following along with Nate Warden’s Kindle story of Il Gatto Con Gli Stivali, it looks like you’re going to have to wait a week to find out the ending of the tale. I promise you, it does not go the way it happened in Shrek. When Puss would do the sad eye thing
I always thought that was the funniest part of the film. If you’ve ever owned cats, you know they nailed it. But that never happened in the Italian story. In fact, in the 1800’s in Italy, the majority of cats were not domesticated house pets, so it was unlikely they made that face. In Rome, feral cats were known as free cats. Like “hey, free cat.”

So stay tuned for next week for the finale of the trilogy. For now, co-captain James Renfroe gives the run down from Monday:
I’m not really sure where we left off with our famed boot wearing feline but last we saw Puss N’ Boots they were coming off a devastating loss in overtime. With a few days to lick their wounds Orange took the field on Monday night trying to find a way to claw their way back to .500. Blue’s Clues, on the other hand, was looking to find a way to separate themselves from the lower pack. With a nearly full squad present for Blue and savage ladies for Orange, there was a sense going into the game that things could end up tighter than expected. But like most things involving cats, things didn’t really go as expected.
With Boots starting off on D, they quickly got a break and score. This was followed by a series of breaks and scores that led to a 7-0 Boots lead. Blue avoided the first half shut out and managed to string together a couple of points before Orange was finally able to put one away to take half 8-2.
With renewed energy, Blue came out hard on D but it was to no avail. While the second half certainly provided more opportunities for Blue to tighten the score, Boots continued to roll to victory.
Shout out to Enway for making a couple amazing grabs. A diving catch in the corner of the endzone and an amazing leaping catch she made to finish the game. Stickers was solid as a cutter and the guys played their roles.
Also shout out to Blue for playing a really spirited game. They’re a much better team than the score, or their record, suggests. They had some solid play from their female handlers and had a handful of guys who played really great games. They just missed some connections and, in this game, sometimes that’s enough.
Puss N Boots tops Blue’s Clues 15-5.
Puss N Boots evens their record to 4-4. Currently they are the only team with an even record.
This win by Puss N Boots coupled with last night where another cat beat a dog has gotten the cats a little closer in the head-to-head match-ups. The dogs still lead by 5 wins, but it’s closer than it was a couple weeks ago.
