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.


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.

1/  Kali has broken 3 teeth and mom is going to get the vet to smooth the teeth out for Kali’s eating.  Well actually mom will ASK the vet.

2/  I have competed in The Cardwood Derby with my racecar.  I have made it to the Semi finals.                                                          carfr3/  Kali and I each posed wearing the yellow polka dot bikini known as, “The Travelling Bikini.”

4/  This is strictly hush hush my friends….I’m turning grey at the base of my tail. *blushes*  Mom says its hardly noticeable but I’m just waiting for someone to call me The Grey Streak and its smacky paw till they take it back.

5/  Kali likes to lick mom’s face.  Mom doesn’t really like it but Kali purrs so much that mom lets her.

6/ Kali sleeps on the heat register in cold weather but only first thing in the morning.

7/ I like playing and throwing snow about outside.  When mom and I first go outside in the snow I jump around and flick snow off my paws.

Most of my friends will know these things about us but we just don’t change very much and if we do mom tells the world in her posts.  Not much is private around here.

There are so many blogs that are so worthy of this award but I will choose 4.

Speedy The Cheeky Rex Rabbit  Read and watch the adventures of a cute Rex Rabbit that is quite adventurous.

The Kitten Diaries  Read about the exciting and helpful kittens Esme and Bella,   Marvel as they try their hardest to help their humans have an easier and fur filled life.

Tomcat Commentary by Tim  We had to nominate this blog as Einstein is my boyfriend and Buddy is Kali’s one and only.  These posts follow the adventures of 7 felines related by adoption from their point of view.

HairballExpress  Feel the need for a chuckle or a downright belly laugh?  Well, then take a peek at Shrimp and his funnies.  Enjoy the shenanigans of the monster in  Shrimp’s household.

If, you don’t do awards we understand perfectly.  We thought your blog was worthy of this great award.                                                             Kali and Shoks
