Blog of the Year 2012 - 1 star

We were honored with this Blog of the Year 2012 award by those furry sweet peas from
Twinkletoe TAils. Mica Minnie Moo, Julie, Carlos Raphael Camaro and the sweetest Sweet Pea “Oui Oui,” as everyone knows, are Internet sweethearts and we like visiting them often. We really liked seeing the bellies recently and loved reading about their Mom’s very first cats.

This Blog of the Year award is terrific because you can get it back six times! And when other kitties who receive it link back, another star is added to yours until they are all lit up. How pretty would that be!

Thanks, Twinkletoe sweethearts. We are honored and will do our part to help you light up your stars.

We wish to pass this award to the following kitties and hope you have fun with it if you don’t have it and if you do, that it helps you with your stars:

Cherry City Kitties

Marg’s Animals

Katnip Lounge

The Furries of Whisppy

Cat Chat

Celestial Kitties

Whisker Messages from a Church Cat

It’s that frantic time of year. I remember ever so slightly another family going through this hair-pulling madness of digging out boxes of sparkly, glittering things, bringing a giant scratchy post inside with all the terrific outdoor whiffies anyone could ever want and then rushing to-and-fro getting this and that and putting it all just so. It was crazy! But for as much as I wanted to use the scratchy post, my family kept shooing me away outside where it was cold. And so, I runned oft.

This Mom, who isn’t my first Mom (but my last Mom, she promises) says there’ll be no scratchy post here this year because of the “kittehs,” whatever that means, but that hasn’t stopped all the other silliness. Why, there are baubles and shiny things popping up all over the place. Not that I don’t like it; it’s good for a batting session or two, or until the thing doesn’t roll around so well anymore. Definitely not cat-approved in the toy department, in my opinion!

But as I’m watching Mom and the Dad from up on high, safely away from all the hustle and bustle, I just don’t get it. Slow down, I say, savor the moments that are slipping away. Oh, and I’ll take my holiday pettings now.

I mean, an entire month to shiny things? Now, if I were in charge, there’d be an entire season dedicated to treats! Followed by another season of different treats, all intertwinned with Adoring Season because we deserved it, and the weeks of Petting. Can’t forget that last one. That all makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? But a whole month to a scratchy post and what I can only describe as Mom’s short-lived toys? Seriously?

  1. Concats on your award. The holiday season does have a lot of treats, for us humans anyways. I think it would only be fair to dedicate a whole season for kitty treats too!

  2. Congrats on your award!

  11. ConCATulations on your well-deserved award, friends! You are stars every day, so we bet you will fill up all six of them soon! 🙂

  12. I think the holidays should be for pausing and taking time to hang out with kitties – putting up decor can wait! Oh, and concatulations on your award!

  13. Yes, Miss Newton, I totally agree with you. There is a lot of Hullabaloo that has absolutely no resemblance to the original reason for this holiday to begin with. However, it does tend to bring families together, and that is something certainly worth celebrating.

    Besides, I’ll bet there will be some treats in it for you if you wait until “The Big Day”!

    Concats on the award, too!

  14. Concats on your award. We like when the tree goes up so we have lots of dangly toys to play with.

  15. Hello!! It’s great to meet another Washingtonian cat blogger!! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I just added you to my blog reader, so I look forward to visiting you more and getting to know the Colehaus Cats!!

  16. We love this time of year because of all the fun “toys” we get to play with! Though it doesn’t make the mom happy!! 😉

  17. Thanks for all the sweet things you said about us! We think you are all very irresistible, especially that cutest of cute little cuties, Pia . {{sigh}} How cute she is! We saw above that you are Washingtonians. Is that the state or the city? Cause we are Murrilinders and we get really excited when blogging kitties are near us. Course, if you are the state, then you are about as far away as you can get, which isn’t too exciting. Purrs & concats!

  18. Season of Brushing, Season of Petting, Season of Treats, Season of Adoring….what is not to LOVE about that??? Although, I am just a little partial to the Season of Shiny Things….

  19. wait….is QUINT’s paintings gonna be part of the Bazaar??? We DEFinitely gonna hafta go shopping tomorrow!

  20. Congratulations! Thank you for passing that on to us, I think that might be our 6th star! Whoo hoo!

  21. Miss Newton has the most beautiful whiskers. Concats on your award.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  22. why Miss Newton, first, concats on the award! pawsome! And you are so right, why only this time of year for all the shiny stuff and being all nice and loving etc. Why can’t we just do that all year???…hmmm…walks off shaking head…must go ponder this…a year of holiday like stuff…hmmm…not sure

  23. Pretty good advice for humans. Slow down and enjoy the season, whatever it is.
