Some New Awards

A few weeks ago, before our mom's mom passed away, we were given some awards.  We would like to say thank you to our wonderful friend Mario for the beautiful "Thinking of You" Award.  We think of you often, sweet Mario, and send purrs to your parents.  Our new friend Texas, awarded us the "Beautiful Blogger" award.  We are always humbled to know our friends think enough to remember us when passing out awards.

Thinking of You

For the "Thinking of You" Award, we must link back to Nerissa who designed this lovely award.  The mom was particularly excited to win it because pansies and violets are her favorite flowers.  Thank you so much Mario!  And great design, Nerissa!  Then we have to tell 7 things about ourselves, and pass it along.

Beautiful Blogger

For the "Beautiful Blogger" Award, we must also tell 7 things about ourselves and pass this on to 15 bloggers.  Thank you, Texas, for thinking so much of us!  We are just beginning to get to know you, but we love the name of your blog.  It never fails to make the mom smile.

The mom is lazy and is going to do just 7 things about ourselves.  She says her mind has turned to mush and she has laundry to do, what can we say?  Just another slacker moment at our house.  Pardon us!  So here are our 7 things:

A - Carl has a high, squeaky, little voice.

% - Julie is the smallest kitty here.
z - Oui Oui is such a scaredy cat and runs UTB at the first hint of a kitty "squabble".

3 - Mica Minnie Moo never stands on her tippy toes, not even when her back is scratched.
8 - Instead of standing on her tippy toes, MMM "assumes the position" she would with a tom cat when her back is scratched.
N - Oui Oui is the pioneer who finds new places to sleep, hide & walk.

& - Julie loves all peoples foods, and has to at least have a sniff, if not her share.
7 - Oui Oui only likes some peoples foods - butter, whipped cream and peanut butter, and nothing else.

Now for the hard part, deciding who to pass this along to.  With so many deserving kitties, its always so difficult!  We are going to pass it along to 8 kitties, leaving some open for anyone who would like to take either award.  We hope we don't duplicate anyone who already has it, but pardon us if we do.  They have been around for a while now.  Pardon us for not linking back to all the kitties.

So, here they are: 

Au & Target
Katnip Lounge
Sherlock, Ash & Traveler
Sometimes Cats Herd You
Devoted to Willow
Florida Furkids
Hannah & Lucy
The Island Cats

Thank you sweet friends!  Purrs to all!

CCL Wendy said...

Congrats on your awards, and it looks like the timing was very thoughtful. It's wonderful to have friends like that in your time of need.

Yes, each one of your kitties is unique -- very different likes and dislikes and PURRSonalities. The one thing I can't get over is Oui Oui eating peanut butter! Doesn't it stick to the roof of her mouth?


Concats on your wonderful awards.
Those things about each of you make each one of you so unique. Now we have to see a video of Carl's squeaks.
