More Fun and Thank Yous.

Thank you for all the good wishes for Quint’s participation in the #NipClub holiday bazaar last weekend. We were so honored to be a part of that evening and we had a blast! Right now, his artwork is traveling across the country and overseas, showing off his International appeal!

Then, we were extra excited to receive the 7 Things About Me award from our friend Nerissa!

7 Things About Me Award. Thanks, Nerissa!

Nerissa’s a sweetheart. He’s got a great blog that we enjoy a lot and has lots and lots of friends and if you aren’t reading him, you’re missing out. So go on over there. It’s okay to go right this minute – we’ll wait.

*tapping fingers*

If you hadn’t already guessed it, we like to share, be it awards, fun, photos, treats…well, if Quint hasn’t vacuumed those all up first. And we’d like to share this award with everyone!

“What? Not enough space on the Internets for us to do that? *sigh* Okay, *grumpy voice* we’ll try to narrow it down to seven.”

Nicki and Derry at Fuzzy Tales.
Ayla, Iza and Marley over at Mark’s Mews.
Madi (and Mom) at Madi and Mom.
Toby and Leia from the Whiskeratti.
Faraday, Maxwell and Allie at A Tonk’s Tail… err,…Tale.

We guess that also means we need to tell you 7 things about us that we haven’t already shared; a tough thing for us since we tend to tell all (and some wonder why Tessa and Pia are such little tattletails…hmm,). And then we remembered, “Wait a tic! We’ve got 7 kitties! Surely, no one wants to hear 7 things about each one (or maybe you do *shrugs*).”

Okay, here goes:

1. Seth: I used to be extra sensitive about my tail nubbin. Wouldn’t you be if someone docked yours when you were just a kid? Mom and the Dad noticed that about me from the start and they seem to make it a point to give me space back there. I respect that.

2. Maxx says: I’m the only one who’s allowed to spend all my days and nights in Mom and Dad’s room. Everyone thinks I peed downstairs last month because I don’t like anyone else but if you saw how cushy this room is, you’d understand why I wanted to make this my personal pad. Waiter, more nip and another round of sardines!

Happy Maxx.

3. Miss Newton: I love my family and I tell them this every day, multiple times actually, and with such enthusiasm. I really love my Dad best of all, but no one is allowed to hold me. Not even Dad. Ever. Who needs messy furs anyway?

Miss Newton happy to nap.

4. Tessa: Danger Cat’s my name ’cause danger is my game…unless I’m lounging around thinking of ways to spice things up around here. When I’m doing that, I always, ALWAYS, criss-cross my front paws. Because it’s cute and being cute is the antidote for being in trouble. *wink*

5. Pia Bean: One of my favorite times of day is in the evening when Mom is clickity-clicking on the keyboard. She lets me sit on the chair with her until I get too comfortable and pin prick her back too much with my kneeding claws. She’s pretty tolerant and puts up with it for longer than anyone should have to. I love my Mom, but I don’t like her new nickname for me – Pia Pinprick!

6. Olivia: I don’t meow. Not that I don’t know how, it’s just…I don’t know, I prefer to chirp. So much more charming and lady-like, don’t you think? I’ll bet boy cats like it.

Smart Olivia.

7. Quint: Growing boys need lots of room, particularly to sleep. And when I sleep, I s-t-r-e-t-c-h o-u-t on the couch and take up two cushions and don’t mind who sees my spotted belly and um, those other parts. Hey, I’m a boy that way.

  7. Congrats on your award. This is most enlightening and funny.

  9. Pawsome stuff we learned today! And thanks ever so much for sharing the award.

  10. PS: We get a big meow out of the Cat Cam.

  13. Awards are so nice when you gets to share more things about you, we always loves to hear about all our kitty friends.
    Miss Olivia, I only chirp a bit to, I don’t think I could meow if I tried, and yes I think it makes you more lady-like. I wonder if it’s a black cat thing? Tipp

    • Black cat chirping could be a black cat thing. We’ve started volunteering at our local No-Kill shelter that just happens to have a number of black cats and so far, we’ve only heard one meow. The rest chirp!

  14. Concatulations on your award! See, there is always something new to learn about you kitties!

  15. How fortuitous that there are seven of you for the seven things! Oh! Wait! There are seven of us too…

  16. Concats on your award. We loved reading something about each of you.

    BTW, does Miss Newton allow belly rubs? Our human says that’s a belly made for smooching and rubbing.

    Thanks for including us, please don’t be offended if it takes the human a while to post it–she’s not doing a good job of keeping up these days!

    • Miss Newton’s all for belly scritches and belly brushings. She loves these! And when we can get a kiss or two in there, we do! Her belly is indeed, made for smooching!

  17. Wow, there are a lot of kitties at your house. Mum and we say thank you for the prayers and purrs. She has good hopes things will work out fine.

  18. Concats on your award and thank you so much for passing it to us! We luv learning more about our furriends. xoxoxo

  19. Hey hey hey and thank you for the guys are so cute

  20. Well, those are just about the most interesting 7 things EVER. You know, Olivia, I too *can* meow but much prefer making other noises. Meowing is just so….pedestrian, don’t you think so?
    Tessa, those crossed paws would get you ANYTHING you wanted from my Human.
    And Seth–someone CUT YOUR TAIL OFF??? What in Sam Hill is WRONG with some people???? (Not that your nubbin isn’t adorable like the rest of you).

    • Pedestrian, exactly! Olivia liked that and agrees. Tessa Criss-Cross is doing just that this very minute that we’re typing this. We’ll have to look around to see what kind of trouble she’s gotten into that we haven’t found yet. As for Seth, we think he was a rescue from a drug house originally (and then taken to high-kill and had been abused enough so that he ended up blind in one eye (which is also somewhat deformed as a result), declawed poorly in that he has very, very weak and shaky front ankles and yep, someone had snipped most of his tail off. We share your thoughts on that as well.

  21. Concats on your award. I have a little in common with all of you. I don’t like to be held; I like to chirp, etc.

  22. Concats on your awards! We loved your answers. We’ll have to remember when Julie is picking a fight, its not fighting, its spicing things up. The mom can relate to Pia Pinprick. Mica Moo does that to her too. She is always cutting her nails, which scares Mica Moo no end, but her nails are like razors.

  23. Congratulations on your award! I enjoyed reading 7 things about you! Miss Newton, you are so lovely and sweet! My Niko doesn’t want to be held either, but he is very sweet too 🙂 Tessa, your criss-cross paws are so cute! You make me squeee! You are very beautiful, Olivia. I’d love to hear you chirp 🙂

  24. Well for kitten sakes, I dictated a lovely note to you yesterday but upon viewing this morning I see that Pathetic Woman has neglected to post it.

    My dear Seth, there truly are no words to describe what hell your life must have been for you before your forever home was found. I am just certain that all the horrors have been more than blotted out by the absolute stellar love and security you now enjoy in abundance. I have half a whisker to send you a egg carton for chrissmouse but that Pathetic Woman tossed the last one out at tanks bee giving. Useless…
    As for learning about the rest of you (you guyz haz a big crowd like us!) we are all enraptured by your up close and personal factoids.

    Ms. Stella O’Houligan

  25. Mom and I wanted to let you all know we’ll have our 7 things post up on Sunday 12/9.
    thank you again
    Hugs madi and Mom

  26. Big congrats on your award!!!
    It’s so fun to learn more about everyone.
