We are embarrassed by how many awards we have received and not reported about. We love each and efurrybuddy who thinks highly enough of us to pass on an award and are humbled by just how many of you there are. So without further apologies, here they are.
We received this reason to have a pawty, The Sunshine Picnic Award, from our good friend Sammy at onespoiledcat. Since we have some sun today, we think it is the purrfect time to invite 10 special friends for a picnic and and suggest things they can bring with them. Sammy will be our Special Guest and only has to bring his furrabulous self.
The invitees are: The Florida Furkids, Allie (Mau’s girlfriend), Ellie, Raz and Cubby from Friends Furever. Please bring the warmth of Florida. Our sisfur, Nylablue (Nylablue and Sherri-Ellen’s Purrfect Pad): Please bring Twinklestar. We haven’t seen her in a while. Oh yeah, and some of that nommy candy made from the maple syrup in Canada. Our brofur, Bailey (Bailey Boat Cat): Please bring your turtles, as it might be one of the last times we get to see them. We promise not to make turtle soup. Spitty (Spitty Speaks) who we serve as faithful Viceroys of Treasure Island: Please bring some fresh Sourdough bread and Dungeness crabs. We know you already have this award, but we hope you will come anyway and bring these noms. Mom says she has the green papers to pay you back. Clooney and Neyteri (Clooney’s Num Num Fund): Please bring noms of your choice. We do like Temptations. And finally, Timmy, Toby, Einstein, Rumpy, Buddy-Budd, Miss Fitz and Mr. Buttons (Tomcat Commentary by Tim): Will you please bring Grilled Sticky Buns with Butter and some Hot Nip Chocolate like you brought to Campfire. That was one of the bestest desserts, according to Mau.
If any of you want to have a picnic (if you haven’t already) and pass along the award, you can invite any or all of us (Kitties Blue) as your special guest(s) and invite others to bring the picnic fixings.
The Lighthouse Award — A Blog That Brings Light To A Dark World. We don’t know if we do that or not but are so grateful to Beverly and Sophie at moggiepurrs for passing this along. It does have some rules and guidelines:
1. Display the Award logo on your blog. √
2. Write a post and link back to the blogger who nominated you. √
3. Inform your nominees of their nominations. √
4. Share three ways that you like to help people.
a) Mom volunteers for a TNR/Rescue group, Barn Cat Buddies. We got her involved in this because Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista are all alums of this group; b) Mom and Mau pawticipate in Service Projects through Cat Scouts; c) Mom tries to pay it forward by helping new bloggers when they have questions or problems she has encountered and solved.
5. There is no limit to the number of people you can nominate. We nominate: Animal Shelter Volunteer Life, Brian’s Home and Cat in the Fridge for their efforts in finding homes for kitties, Piranha Banana for being a therapy dog, Waffles from Glorgirly for being a therapy cat, Gracie from Goodness Gracie for all the hard work she does at Cat Scouts as Patrol Leader of the Wolverines.
This bright and beautiful Sunshine Award came from our dear sisfur, Nylablue. We are supposed to pass this on to ten blogs that inspire us. Nylablue has already passed this on to several of those we would have selected, but we think these are some wonderpurr choices: Angel Prancer Pie, Manx Mnews, A Tonk’s Tail, Athena, Cat Goddess, Eric and Flynn’s Adventures, Cat Chat with Caren & Cody, CATachresis, Colehaus Cats, My Three Moggies and Cat from Hell.
We are excited and honored to be nominated for the Field of Flowers Award by The Kitty Corner and also from Living With Loulou. We usually have some Daffodils and Tulips blooming by now, but with the never ending Polar Vortex, we don’t think that will be happening any time soon, so this colorful award is a delight to have. The rules for this award are as follows:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. √
2. Display the award on your blog. √
3. Nominate 7 other blogs and let everyone know why you are presenting them with the award. The reason we are nominating these blogs is because they make us happy and deserve bouquets.
4. Tell the 7 nominees of their nomination. √
We are happy to be nominating and sending flowers to: Friends Furever, Critters in the Cottage, The Kitty Cat Chronicles, Twinkletoe Tails, Furries of Whisppy, moggiepurrs and Tomcat Commentary by Tim.
We were super tickled to receive this Excellence Award from Nissy at Nerissa’s Life. After all, his is one of the most excellent blogs we know. Our nominees are Nylablue and Sherri-Ellen’s Purrfect Pad, onespoiledcat, Friends Furever, Savannah’s Paw Tracks, Katnip Lounge, Bailey Boat Cat, Spitty Speaks and Colehaus Cats.
And finally, just today we received two awards. The first, the Most Influential Blogger award, is from our friend Austin Towers from CATachresis. He said that somewhere along the way, the rules for this award had been lost. That suits us just fine, as we are pretty sure you have quit reading by now. There are some very influential bloggers out there to which we are passing along this award: Sparkle he Designer Cat; Chronicles of Zee and Zoey; Brian’s Home; Glorgirly, Sometime’s Cats Herd You, Katie Isabella and Stunning Keisha.
And from our friend Timmy (link above), we received this award. We do already have it but are most appreciative of his having thought us worthy.
We would promise you that we will never get this behind again, but we have absolutely no control over the human’s priorities, and we know that most of you have the same problem and so will understand.
If any of you don’t accept awards or if any of you already have the award we have given you, we apologize for the inconvenience. Just remember that we are recognizing you in this way ’cause we think you are pawtastic!
Purrs and Paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
p.s. Please check back with us on Sunday if you want more information on that mousey!
