Blogger Recognition Award From Lexi: the schnauzer

Oh my, lexi the schnauzer recommended us for this lovely award.  We thank you Lexi for the honour and thinking of us.                                                                        

Now, I am suppose to recommend 15 blogs to receive this award.  Many blogs that I follow have been here for years and probably either already have this award or don’t do awards.  Oh what the nip!  I will name 5 blogs and if they choose not to participate, so be it.

Stunning Keisha…..a wise cracking kitty who believes she should have the last word in the household.

Piglove…..in the Thompson household there are 2 cats a wee dog and a pot bellied pig named Bacon.  Houdini( wee dog) looks after the posts on Friday and Bacon guides his bro.  The 2 cats are laughing at them but Bacon and Houdini just think the cats are very happy.  A household with a pot bellied pig is hard to ignore.

The Kitten Diaries…Bella and Esme are two kittens trying their best to help girl- woman and boy-man with household chores.  At least their version of how the chore should be accomplished and along the way having a few adventures.

Timmy’s Commentary…..this is where my guy Einstein lives…he has a wonderful floofy tail, Timmy, Miss Fitz, Buttons, Kali’s love, Buddy also lives here.  Toby and a big white cat…beautiful fur..the mind clicks…Rumpy!  The going ons in this house are hilarious as the boys try to outdo each other while miss Fitz is giggling under her breath..

Da tabbies o trout towne ….trout towne has a population of 11.  Each inhabitant has his or her own idea on how things should be done.  There are 2 things they agree on.  Fish is the best possible meal and no birdz are allowed.

The other part of the award acceptance said to tell everyone how we got started and give a bit of advice to those starting out.

Well, this is going to sound very dramatic but mom had heart failure in the winter of 2013 and ended up getting a pace maker.  When the surgeon put in the pace maker he nicked the heart and the heart started bleeding.  Mom found she couldn’t walk far without being winded.  Very quickly the doctors discovered the bleeding and mom was medi-vacced down to Vancouver to a heart intensive care unit at St. Pauls Hospital.  Here she was poked and prodded and finally they drained the blood from around her heart.  Mom said it was the worst possible pain she ever felt.  She was in the hospital in Vancouver for about a week.  She and dad managed to make it home on a normal jet.  Mom was so proud but exhausted.  She wasn’t allowed to do much and  was slowly going bonkers so one day she looked at the computer and found Mousebreath magazine, then Cat Scouts and finally decided on a blog for me and my sis.

Mom has two pieces of advice…stay with the blog, so what if you have 1 visitor….do the blogging for you and a record of your pet.  Then as Lexi says, lots of pictures.  We all love to see our friends in funny positions or just mellowing out.

To those I’ve named, simply follow the same things as I have done and link back to The Edge of Night.

The very last thing to do is let the blogs that have been nominated know.

    Congrats on the well deserved award. I love your advice- so true, do it for you and for a record of your pet(s). I am glad it has developed into so much more though and to know so many cat lovers. As soon as Miss Mudpie tries the bikini, I will send it to you. Any chance of cow kitty trying it too? Happy Thanksgiving!

    Oh I’m so looking forward to trying the bikini on Shoko and Kali….neither one of them is going to be happy bout it but it’ll be a hoot. Cow-Kitty,,,I wish he would but so far I can’t get real close to him. He was over for a visit today….I saw him about 5 days ago. I was wondering if he got fixed. He won’t let me get close enough to check. Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. It’s a Bubble and Squeak night for supper tonight.

      Buddy gets cranky too? Just like Kali does then. They are bound to get happier now that they know each other. Kali made mom save Buddy’s picture and told mom to go have a hard copy made so that she can sleep with Buddy in her basket. Mom said no problem. I must do the same with your picture Einey. Mom knows the award is a lot of work but thought this award most applicable to you guys.
      I know when mom was so sick, she slept a lot. She pretty well stayed in the bedroom and before long she was asleep again.

    Congratulations on your award, Cats. That’s a perfect reason to blog – to keep from going bonkers while healing. Excellent advice for new bloggers, too. Keep at it. One follower turns to two and two turns to three…..

    Love and licks,

    Concats on the well-deserved award and you nominated some great blogs, not counting mine of course. I’m glad your Mom seems to have fully recovered. That was some ordeal for her and your Dad. You gave some good advice.
    BTW. you can enter for an American friend. Just tell the state they live in.

    Concats on the award. I don’t know a couple of those blogs and you made them sound so interesting, I’m going to go check them out. Mom kind of started my blog the same way. She had what you humans call The Big C. After her surgery and chemo, she decided she needed to do something fun. Mom says that your advice for new bloggers about staying with it is purrfect, but did you have to mention the pictures?

    MOL Glad you will stop by and visit a couple of blogs. I like to get laughs out of posts usually. Life is far too serious and we all need to loosen up and be happy. Isn’t it strange how we find other outlets. Mom does like pictures…I like closing my eyes when the camera comes out.

    It is a dramatic reason to begin blogging but it was a horrific experience for your Mom AND I daresay blogging was something to take her mind off things…..we’re glad you’re here AND glad your Mom is having fun because we LOVE the blog AND you!!!! Concats on the blog award too.

    Hugs, Sammy

      We really like you guys…even though you eat fish and don’t like burds. MOL Kali is doing well with the fish oil. Mom got up during the night and Kali got up with her. Kali was running up and down the hall, then giving mom the eye..like, “C’mon let’s play.” It was 2am so the playing never happened. Kali has been lying in bed for 2 days and didn’t want to get up except to eat of course.

    Don’t worry about losing Lady Mum, Dharth. It will only upset your delicate system. Lady Mum will take care of herself and live for many years as will my mom. They just have health problems that are very trying but they overcome them. You never know they may be rewarded in their next life over the bridge.

    She will be good as new fairly soon Dharth. Pneumonia takes quite awhile to get over and Lady Mum should be careful…as pneumonia is easier to get the next time. Nothing to fret about. Mom is more prone to get Bells Palsy again but she has never caught it again. It’s just something to look out for. Did your mum get a pneumonia shot? It is still no guarantee she won’t get it. The pneumonia shot is made up of a number of vaccines that will fight off the flu but there could be a new strain that wasn’t in existence when the flu shot was given.
