Join me at the More Than A Cone event this Friday evening at The Autry in Los Angeles…
Cynthia and Marcy and Penelope Kitten are lazily lazing about this Labor Day weekend.
Cynthia: Oh. Oh. Oh! Marcy and Penelope! Check out this art festival/animal welfare fundraiser called More Than A Cone.
penelope kitten (perking up): i luv a cone.
Cynthia: It’s this Friday, September 11th, 7-11pm at The Autry in Los Angeles.
penelope kitten (squeaking): i want a cone.
Cynthia: The festival centers around that horrible cone you guys sometimes have to wear if you’re injured. It’s a very important medical device but is unfortunately known as the “cone of shame”.
More Than A Cone is a nonprofit that not only hopes to change the image of the cone but also “raise awareness about pet adoption, wellness, and recovery.”
penelope kittten: my fave is vanilla.
Cynthia: They commission artists to create art with the cone. The artists range from cartoonists, street graffiti artists, fashion designers, and more!
Then, they auction off the art and raise money for animal welfare.
penelope kitten: but i’ll take mint too.
Cynthia (gushing): This is so wonderful! What a neat-o idea.
penelope kitten: if you have it.
Just then Marcy leaps out of the shadows, growling and hissing, and attacks the computer with the cone imagery on the screen.
Cynthia and Penelope watch in horror as Marcy pummels the computer.
Marcy (seething and out of breath): I hate cones.
Cynthia: So. Obviously, you will not be joining me at the More Than A Cone gala. Too bad. Judy Greer is the host.
penelope kitten: i’ll go. i luv cones. and judy.
Cynthia: Hmmm… there are going to be bands and lots of people. It may be a bit too much for you, Pkitty.
penelope kitten: ok. i’ll eat my cone at home.
Cynthia (excitedly): The suggested dress code is “summer cocktail.” What should I wear?
Marcy (still seething): A cone. Around your neck.
penelope kitten: two scoops with sprinkles please.
