We recently received this very nice award, which was new to us, from our pal, Purrince Siddhartha Henry. If you don’t know him, he’s the new kitty at what was Nylablue’s (our honorary sisfur) Purrfect Pad. You can meet Dharth by clicking here.



As with most awards, we have a few rules to follow.

  1. Thank the one who gave you the award: Siddhartha you were so kind to pass this award to us. Thanks! It makes us so happy that you think we (and Mom) are creative.
  2. Link to the blog of the one who gave the award to you: We did that above.
  3. Now we must tell you five things about ourselves. This is a tough one. Which of us get to be the ones to share? What could you possibly not know about us or our mom? After excavating our brains for memories of funny or interesting things about ourselves, we ended up letting Mom list things about herself.
  • Mom and Dad met right after college when he was a Yellow Cab driver and she worked for Budget Rent-A-Car at the Santa Barbara, CA, Airport.
  • If you were to stand on the sidewalk facing the house in which Mom grew up in Campbell, CA, and then look to the right you would be looking straight at the front of eBay’s headquarters, just two blocks away. It is where a huge private estate was located when she was growing up.
  • Mom started riding motorcycles with her dad when she was three years old. Her dad would put a pillow on the gas tank for her to sit on and then strap her to him with a belt.
  • Mom has four tattoos: Pooh, Tigger, a ladybug (for good luck) and our blog logo. 
  • Mom’s first pet of her very own was a five-pound cockapoo named Smack who she got when she was a sophomore in College.

Mom, Smack (L) and Poppy (R), Christmas 1977

Now we need to nominate 15 to 20 blogs to receive this award. This is the hardest part, but here are our nominees with links to their blogs:

 Animal Shelter Volunteer Life  Beaded Tail  Clooney’s Num-Num Fund  Cat in the Fridge  Critters in the Cottage  Friends Furever  Island Cats  Kitty Cat Chronicles  Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal  McGuffy’s Reader  Playful Kitty  Random Felines  Spitty Speaks  Stunning Keisha ♥ A Tonk’s Tail 

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Sorry I’m so late picking this up. I can’t believe the blog awards have started again. Thanks for the nomination cos I am creative. Too bad this award didn’t start with a Q since I can’t think of a Q word to blog about.

Congrats on getting such a nice award Kitties Blue! And thank you for passing it on to us! We feel very honoured and humbled that you thought of us 🙂 Now we have to get that lazy, good for nothing typist to post about it! She needs a good kick in the butt most days when it comes to posting at all! ;p

Your Mama was a cutie as a young’un! And we enjoyed learning all the facts about her. Does she still like motorcycles or did getting strapped to one at such a young age make her afraid of them forevermore?!

Another way cool award! ConCATS, furiends! And thank you so much for passing it along to us! It is always an honor to be recognized by your fellow bloggers and furiends. We enjoyed learning those fun facts about your mom. Our mom laughed when she read the one about your mom getting strapped to her dad on his motorcycle – too funny! She always says she wants to see your mom’s tattoos!! Our mom doesn’t have any, but she likes seeing other people’s. We are planning on getting a post up tomorrow about the award you passed to us a couple of weeks ago, so we will add this one to it too! We are just way behind in every way right now… MOL! Thanks for being patient with us! Sampy sends 293875098375098235 kisses to Astrid, and we all send lots of love!
