Introducing @SOCKSARMY

With nearly 700,000 followers (my word) keeping track of Sockington, it’s pretty natural that all the humans would be calling out (incessantly, I promise you) for Sockington to link to them. Pet rescue, products, eloquent scams… I’ve been watching from my chair and I think I’ve seen it all. Sometimes they even convince stump that he needs to “tweet” about it, and when he does, there’s a nice rush of visitors for what we can all hope is a worthy cause. Unfortunately, this means that even more people start clamoring for being mentioned.

Socks isn’t really engineered for that. In fact, he’s barely engineered to get to his litterbox predictably, if you know what I mean.  I don’t know how people tolerate the amount of tweeting he does now, to be honest, and if he was to start “retweeting” or taking up all the causes people are calling for, there’d be room for little else, like gazing upon my fine coat.

To that end, there is now a twitter account that will occasionally spread all the word of “news”, “causes” and whatever else strikes Fatty’s fancy. I know, I know, is there anything sillier? But honestly, as a cat who was rescued from some pretty cold nights and an impending winter, I figure I should support this… otherwise fatty might take all them in as well!

So, if you wish to be exposed to things of a notification, outreach, or charity nature, please go subscribe yourselves to @socksarmy on twitter.


I can’t wait to see what happens with this.

This is Pennycat, signing out.

Please make decals of the socksarmy logo that adhere to the INSIDE of car windows, so that we can buy them and provide kibble money for Socks, Penney, and whatever stray cat support organization you designate.

I’ll buy the first two. I have three moggies, two from shelters and one from the street (well – patio actually) so I know stray cats need kibble money.

Oh – I just noticed – poor Penny has no TwitterCounter. What about Penneycat? I follow her too.

Ruby cat (predictably) sniffs the computer screen and arrogantly struts to the window, oblivious to the well known fact that she is NOT the ONLY cat in the world…

Hey – we just tipped over 800k on Socks. Where is the new video ????

My friendly Staffie called Mable, would love to help your cat exercise, because she thinks Socks is looking a wee bit overweight. The game will involve Mable chasing after Socks, and if she catches her you will need to get a new cat …….
