My cats have received an award, and there it is, up above. It is called the International Bloggers Community award and it is among the highest honors we could ever have received - right up there with the Nobel and Pulitzer prize. So we thank you, Slash and Bronzy. It was sent June 9 but I have not had the time to formally accept it by making this post until now.
And let it be known that Bronzy is undergoing a health crisis right now - but is expected to recover. So, everybody pull for Bronzy!
The hard part about receiving such an award is that I must now pass it on to seven other bloggers. That means I must leave out the many bloggers whose work and cats I enjoy and admire and I hate to do that.
Anyway, I will pick five almost at random out of my cat bloggers list and let me say that everybody on that list is worthy of this great award. So, here are the seven mnnnnnnnnnn: (I was going to correct the "mnnnnnnn" but it was typed in by my black cat, Jimmy, so I realized that it was correct to begin with. Jimmy is never wrong.).
Standtall - The Activist - Africa is known for its great cats - lions, cheetahs and the like - but in all of Africa there are no greater cats than those that prowl the roof and sleep in the bed of my good friend, Standtall.
The newly-wed Michico - pet of the very serious Adan and impossibly mischievous Lego.
Zippy, Sadie and Speedy - Who are Kattonic, but definitely not catatonic. Sorry about your woofie buddy, Alfred
The felines at ourcatablog - would that all the cats in the world could receive the love and care these fortunate ones do.
The busy mom at kazokuneko who busies herself with the rescue of kittens
Sharyn - Things seems to have gone a little batty at the Kitty City Gazette lately.
Sweet Praline - just like candy, but if you lick her you will get fur on your tongue.
Us Four Gatos - these four go about meowing in Spanish.
Links for all these sites will soon appear to the right.
