Sweet Katie Isabella gave Carl the "Bring on the Nip" Award. Thanks, beautiful Katie! Its always an honor to win an award, and to know you think of us. This is Carl's first award and he's thrilled! For this award, Carl just needs to talk about what inspires him the most. Of course, there are nip and salmon pate, but there is one thing dear to his heart. Long time readers may remember how he sang duets with Katie's predecessor, the lovely Admiral Hestorb.
Its hard to believe that a year ago I was singing duets with Admiral. These days I belt out my best loved arias and all I hear is the mom screeching, "CARLOS!" Then I have to lower my voice. How I miss the days when Admiral and I sang as loudly as we liked and never woke HER mom! Although we thought our giggles might wake her on a few occasions.
On enchanting, balmy summer nights we would sneak out after her mom was asleep. We caught moths and spring peepers, roasted them like s'mores over a campfire and sang our favorite Italian arias. Sometimes Admiral was just so silly and playful, we would have contests to see which of us could bay like woofies at the moon the longest and loudest. She had such a wonderful sense of humor! And how we laughed when the neighbors threw shoes at us! Of course, we would wait until we thought they were asleep and wake them again. We were just a couple of carefree cats having fun.
Sometimes, after the mom is finished squawking at me, I can hear Admiral soft, melodious voice singing sweetly from on high and it reminds me of Will's line, "Her voice was ever soft, gentle, and low, an excellent thing in a cat."
Carl hopes the kitties he is passing this award onto haven't already gotten it. Its always a hard choice! We will refrain from passing it on to any kitties at Marg's since both Mahoney and Two Two are desperately trying to learn to type so they can respond to the last awards we gave them. Ha, ha, ha! So Carl is awarding this to:
1 - Odin at Cat Wisdom 101
2 - Sparkyspitfire
3 - Piewhackits at Kwee Cats
4 - Kassey at Great Granny
5 - Abby at Manx Mnews
Thanks again, Katie! And we can't wait to hear what our furriends say inspires them. Purrs everyone!
