We recently were nominated for the Shine On Award by Astrid’s boyfriend Sampson and his fursibs from the Kitty Cat Chronicles. Thank you so much. We have always admired this award and are tickled that you passed it on to us.

The award does come with a few rules:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On award, provide a link to their blog in your post, and notify them on their blog.

So we have taken care of the first two on the list. Now for the seven random facts (which we are turning into eight for obvious reasons).

Lily Olivia: Leo (Critters in the Cottage) and I keep trying to get together for a date, but our humans stay so busy they can’t seem to help us make it happen.

Mauricio: I am in love with my girlfriend Allie (Friends Furever), but she says that we haven’t been together long enough for me to say it.

Misty May: I won’t come in the house for breakfast or dinner until I see one of the humans at the door with a filled food bowl in hand.

Giulietta: If I am shut out of a room I want in, I will scratch the door continuously until it is opened.

Fiona: Sometimes I get to go out in the yard with Mom when she works in the garden, so I often think it is okay to go out on my own and sneak out if I can. I always come right back when I am called ’cause I know what I am doing is naughty and not allowed.

Astrid: I chased Lisbeth a couple nights ago. She took off and ran right through our cat drinking fountain throwing water all over the kitchen and knocking the top off the fountain. Fun times!

Lisbeth: My very favorite thing to do is eat the fresh flowers we always have in the kitchen.

Calista Jo: I have two sisters, Ellie and DeeDee, who are “failed” fosters ’cause they needed to be adopted as a bonded pair. It never happened. I can attest that they have one of the best moms ever. You can read about them here.

Blogs we are nominating for this award:

 Critters in the Cottage (link above)  on a more personal note   Lone Star Cats  Sushi’s Diary  Random Felines  Bailey Boat Cat  Colehaus Cats  Fur Everywhere  Clooney’s Num Num Fund 

This award has been around before and we know it is making the rounds again, so we are going to stop here with nominations. We know so many of our other furiends we would normally nominate have received it recently. If you already have it, please forgive our duplication.

We’ll be back tomorrow with Calista Jo and “Doozy of a Snoozy.” And please don’t forget to join us for our 2nd Blogoversary this coming Monday, July 21.

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