We are very honored to have won 2 awards this weekend! Unfortunately, this post is really long, so we will do the first one today, and the second one tomorrow.
The first was awarded from Penelope at Mewsings of Garden Cats to Mica Minnie Moo. Its the Illuminating Blogger Award. Mica Moo was so excited to get her very first award all to herself. She's the first kitty here to get her very own award. Sweet Penelope told an illuminating story of how she was deaf when born, but when she was several months old started to develop her hearing. They have the most beautiful gardens at their blog, and very pretty cats. Their mom has a real eye for beauty, and MMM thanks Penelope for thinking of her! They are dear old friends and we love them.
So MMM has to tell an illuminating story about herself. This happened last Friday morning and shows a positive way a kitty can influence the beans around them. The mom's alarm went off, and she decided to get up in a minute. Well, she fell back asleep and started dreaming.
She dreamed she was at a big, old house, and there were many people sitting around outside at picnic tables. She decided to go inside and was looking at branches with berries on them when she noticed a horrible smell which smelled like burning pumpkin. As she climbed the stairs to the veranda, there was a huge, half rotted pumpkin burning.
She went inside and two ladies were making pumpkin lasagna for a contest to see who could eat the most the fastest without breaking the long pumpkin strands. These two ladies were the two top competitors and they were showing the mom how to serve it without breaking the pumpkin fibers.
Then one of the ladies started singing a ballad in a baritone voice, complete with arm flourishes. The words were, "Come with me, Maria, and I'll make you salami tea." Then the mom woke up, looked at the clock and realized she should have gotten up 45 minutes ago.
She went into the bathroom, and MMM had graciously used the litter box without covering it up. That's where the smell came from, and the mom would have been late to work if she had gotten up any later. So, besides inspiring a funny dream, she did the mom a real favor. MMM uses this method of waking the mom on the weekends too when she wants to be fed.
So, now we have to pass this award onto 5 kitties. This is always the really hard part, because we would pass it on to so many kitties if we could.
