Wordy Wednesday - Another Awardie


Kitties, Miss Katie Isabella has given us an award!   She calls them "awardies" so we will too (isn't she the cutest girl cat?).

It is the Blog of the Year Award.



Here is how this one works.     You don't have to DO anything like tell stuff about yourself but you send it back to the cat who sent it to you and then to as many other friends as you like.  Anybody can get it up to 6 times and each time you get it, you add another yellow star filled in (we don't know HOW to do that yet but hope we will learn *).   We have added our stars up to 5.    C'mon, kitties, somebody get us up to six!     Later:  we did it!

We are going to pass this one to:

Katie Isabella
Pikku Pinapippuri and siblings
Chey, Gemini and Ichiro
The Poupounette
Bugsy and Knuckles
Brian and siblings
Mariodacat
Katnip Lounge Kats
Ms Stella O'Houligan
Katz Tales
Sparkle

Tabby Cat Club

Kitties, as you may know, Audrey and Simba are members of the Tabby Cat Club.      Though we both are rather lax with posting on the Tabby Cat Club website, we sure are proud and happy to be members.     Recently we missed the first blogoversary of the club on November 15th, when the humans were visiting The Baby for her Baptism.   We wanted to show you the awesome new banner from the club website with our new Clubhouse and ALL the members!    This super graphic was done by Gracie's human.



Can you find us?

Any tabbycat with his or her own blog can become a member of the Tabby Cat Club!!

Seven Things Award

The sweet cats of Twinkle Toe Tails gave us the Seven Things Award on November 11th and we have not yet gotten around to posting about it.  Wonder who's responsibility THAT is (cough cough)?

Thank you, Oui Oui, Mica Minnie Moo, Julie, and Carlos Raphael Camaro.     We feel very honored that you passed this award on to us.  


We will take turns for the Seven Things about us:

1.  Simba:   Though I don't like to sit on laps, I always try to sleep smushed up very close to Mom.

2.  Audrey:  I have very good hearing.  If the cabinet where the food is kept is opened, I will awake from a deep sleep instantly.

3.  Simba:  I don't like to be brushed much, although I do enjoy when Dad runs the brush across my head and down my spine.  Just no sides or tummy are every allowed, or else the bitey will follow.

4.  Audrey:  I will eat anything!  Even Tostitos and Saltines.

5.  Simba:   I am a picky eater.  Even my favorite foods sometimes just don't taste right to me and I leave most of my meal in the bowl.

6.  Audrey:  I make Mom itchy if my fur rubs against her skin or get near her eyes, or if I lick her or nibble her.    She is definitely allergic to me.

7.  Simba:  Although my long fur tickles Mom, she never seems to get allergy symptoms from me.

Now we are supposed to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers.  Because we were so slow and pokey about getting around to doing it, we expect many of our friends have had it already.     However we will try awarding it to the following cat bloggers, but also want to say that we would be happy if any of our friends grabbed it and told us 7 things.  

Katie Isabella
Angel and Isabella
Nerissa
Island Cats
William and siblings
Margs Animals

Happy Thanksgiving!

To all our friends and furriends in the USA, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.      We have so much to be thankful for this year (our humans do too!) .     Here to help you celebrate (and salivate) is our very own turkey visitor from the past Spring.     He is one of the ones who isn't anybody's dinner today!

Our Excuse

Kitties,   the humans abandoned us to go and visit The Baby Grandchild for a few days.   So blogging has been a challenge to say the least.    Here's the little pumpkin all dressed up on Sunday for her Baptism - she did wear a long white dress for the service, but this outfit for going to the church and afterwards.     Mom and Dad say she is an utter delight.   She was smiling and laughing all the time.

Photo Hunt - Kite

Dad enjoys flying his kite when the humans go to the beach.   Mom knew she had some pictures somewhere, but she had to hunt a lot through the photos to find these.      In the past he has usually used a traditional long tail, but on this day he also tried out a new whirly tail for his big kite.     He got this kite over 37 years ago in Nantucket, but it still does well.    We have to just believe what Mom says about it because we don't go to the beach.

Mom used lots of zoom to get this picture:


Dad reeling the kite in:


Here is the traditional long fabric tail on the same kite:

Femalecat Friday

Audrey's first Mom sent a snuggle sack to us with her, but since being here she hasn't used it until the hurricane.    One day we found her like this:

Thursday in OUR Garden

Kitties, the Nor'Easter was OK for us.     The roads were rather sloppy yesterday afternoon but Mom got herself home from work as early as possible and the humans hunkered down.   There was a lot less wind than they had thought at our house, and so in the end it was a nice little snowstorm for us.   We probably got about 3-4 inches. Things are already warming up and melting here.

Being in such good shape, we still are purring for all those humans and animals for whom this storm was just the last straw on top of evil Sandy.  Fortunately the temperatures are warming up the next few days.   We hope that helps them out and that power can be restored to all those who are still without it.

Wednesday Weather Issues

Kitties, would you believe it, the Northeast is awaiting yet another serious weather situation.      A Nor'Easter storm is headed this way, possibly to bring us significant snow as well as wind, and those on the coast will get more flooding to add insult to injury after the hurricane.    More downed trees and power outages are predicted.    This is getting SO OLD.   Summer and Fall, where did you go?

I am headed back to Dad's pajamas.   This was me last Sunday before we got our power back.


Added 5 pm:     here is a link to Mousebreath which reports on Jeter Harris and siblings on Long Islland where they are still without power from the hurricane Sandy and now also enduring this Nor'Easter.    His humans have bailed and gone to a warm house but the cats are still there without warmth.     So far we have some snow, not too much wind, and everybuddy in the family is inside and still with power.    Though our Police Dept made an automated call saying half our town has no power.    As we said, this is getting OLD.

Sad


We are sad, but Squashies is healthy and running free at the Rainbow Bridge.    Fly high sweet angel girl.    We will not forget you little friend.

Please visit their blog here to leave some purrs and prayers for her family, especially her Mom and her kitty bro TK.

Power Back

Kitties, we are finally warm again!  Our house got its power back last night around 7:30 pm.    Ours was one of the last streets in our neighborhood to be powered up after the hurricane and we were all thinking it would be another shivvery night in the cold, but after cooking "dinner' (for them, not us!) on the grill around 4 pm, the humans went off to Target and Dunkin Donuts just to have something to do and when they got home, the lights in all the houses were blazing!    It took several hours for the house to warm up, but even those first 6 degrees of warmth were a big help.    Mom says she will never take a warm house for granted again.  

We missed a lot in blogland - Halloween, Blog Blast for Peace, etc.    Instead we were doing a lot of this:



It was Easy on Sunday every day!
