Blogger Recognition Award…Thank you DeziWorld!

Oh! Shoko’s going to be upset she missed this one.  She loves awards and thinks they’re hers…just hers.  Well, this award is for all of us…even mom.

Dezi and Raena from Deziworld gave us this awesome award and we thank you very much for your thoughtfulness.                                                      

Isn’t the wreath lovely!  Wish I could wear it like my Lei.                                                   We started blogging back in the fall of 2014.  Shoko had started in Cat Scouts and was having a great time with her new-found buddies.  Mom was reading blogs to us one day and she muttered out loud that we could do a blog too.  Well, it wasn’t as easy as mom thought but dad helped establish her with the blog  Then she was afraid to use it.  What if nobody ever came to see her posts? How embarrassing.  She threw caution to the wind and actually published a post.  Then she wasn’t sure if she should look and see if anyone stopped by.  One day she broke down and looked.  She was in seventh heaven, three peeps had looked at her post.  Woo hoo…the big time!  Mom didn’t blog again for three months.  She didn’t think she could do as well.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET

The best suggestion I have for beginners is to focus on something you never seem to tire of.  If you do this then the posts will never be a chore but fun and part of your personality and also enjoyable for others to read.

The next suggestion I have is to do and say what YOU want to say not what others think you should talk about.  It is your blog to do your thing not be another voice for someone else or their cause.  Be true to you.

Our final step is to choose 15 bloggers we think deserve this award.  Well, there are so many more than 15 bloggers that deserve this award that I will only choose 3 to name and the others are more than welcome to grab the badge and call it their own.  You all have worked to develop the blog and then spent many hours honing the skills needed to develop interesting posts.  In our eyes, you’re all winners!

  

2/  TWOCATSVIEWS:  Life as seen by Hemingway and Steinbeck.
These two little terrors are cats and we view life from their perspective which can be both humorous and touching. Stop by and give them a peek.  Say Kali sent you and maybe some nip will show up.

3/ Hairballs and Hissyfits   is a cat blog which tells the cat’s activities from their own eyes.  A cheerful and happy blog.  Do take a peek at these charming kitties.

There you have it, friends.

See ya when Shoko returns with her Cat Scout stories.

One Lovely Blog Award

lovely-blog2016

Do you realize Kali, that Bacon nominated us for One Lovely Blog Award.  Wasn’t that thoughtful?  Bacon is nosy and probably wants to find out more about us.  We’re nosy as heck so a little curiosity never killed the pig and is probably quite entertaining.  Thank you so much Bacon that was very thoughtful of you.

Now to accept this award, we must tell you 7 things about ourselves you may not know.  That’s going to be hard cause you know an awful lot about us.

1/ I have a boyfriend named Einstein that I met at Cat Scouts.  He is way younger than me.  I now have a nickname of Cougar Shoko.                                                                           einstinkissingshokorIsn’t he handsome?

2/  I haven’t caught a mouse in more than 2 years.  The little dudes slip right through my paws.                                                                     tulipssmCan you see the mouse in the dirt?  Neither could I so I gave up and came inside for a bite to eat.

3/  When I want mom to play chase and tag, I tap her on the arm.  She gets the message and before long we’re up and chasing each other through the house.

4/ I prefer to dine at 6pm when the news is on and everybody is busy and out of the kitchen. Kali and I chow down on pate. Kali needs the pate because of her lack of teeth.

5/ I found a message on the shed…..”For a good time call Shoko at 1-800 *Im a babe*.” Dang that Cow Kitty!  I’ll get the little fart face for this.                                                                          111

6/  I get cold really quickly so I make myself a wee tent.                                        1212We have to move to a warmer climate, mom.

7/  I have a soft spot for Cow Kitty.  I don’t want him too close but if I don’t see him for a few days, I look for him.                                                                      1112   There you have it, our 7 tell all facts about us.
