X is for Xtra #atozchallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of cats as characters. Whether they appear in film, TV, cartoons or literature, these felines may be the star of the show or just a supporting character.

Enjoy the A to Z Challenge…

X is for Xtra. Yes, that is correct. I could not find a cat character that begins with the letter X. This is always one of the hardest characters in the A to Z challenge. So, I am going to take this time to talk about another cat character that I haven’t covered. There are several great ones such as Tom (from the Tom & Jerry cartoons), Sylvester (from the Looney Tunes), and Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh), but I decided to go with Hobbes from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson.  

Hobbes is a stuffed tiger (which is how everyone sees him) but from Calvin’s point of view, Hobbes is more than that. He is a living, breathing anthropomorphic tiger with his own independent attitude and ideas. He is playful, loyal and kind. He is more rational and aware of consequences than Calvin, but that doesn’t mean he stops Calvin from his antics.

    Gah… I wish this was your T post! I need a Tiger from T day for the scavenger hunt.
    Anyway, good way to use your X.

    I love letter X posts! Always such variety.
    It’s hard to believe the alphabet part of the blogging challenge is over for 2021. Down to the after survey, reflections, and the “road trip” sign-up.
    Plus, I’m taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!
