Goodbye to furriends, my nip vocation and awards

Hiya furriends,

Although we have a good home and not too bad humans – we can’t really complain, can we? -, the past few weeks have been very sad at times. Many furriends crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. I cannot list them all sadly but among our fellow bloggers were Fangie at Catself, Kelly at the Creative Cat, Fluffy at Hey… It’s Jet Here, Bingo at Hutch A Good Life, Zac at Zac the All Black.

I’m sure they are all playing together over the rainbow bridge now, free of pain. I am pausing for a minute and will leave a treat behind tonight in their memory.

I was so sad I tried to find a place to remember them quietly and reflect about life.

I found the closet where the humans store our food. But my human found me.

That’s too bad because there were plenty of good food in there. But nothing to help me in my pain or vocation.

No nip.

Now regarding nip… again my furriends, we don’t know the exact effect on humans so don’t try this on your humans. I would like to insist that I do not promise you nip (although if any of the cat-idates to rule the world for a cause would make me Minister of Nip, I could rethink that last statement), only enlightenment for those who believe.

Finally, I was nominated for two more awards that I didn’t have yet. So I would like to thank The Sugarlump for nominating me for the Addictive Blog Award and It’s a Pussy Cat’s Life for the Super Sweet Blogger Award.

Thank you so furry much! I really appreciate and send you purrs!

Here are the Addictive Blog Award Rules:

1. Thank the person awarding you — Done
2. Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started — See below
3. Paste the blog award on your page — Done
4. Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award and let them know you nominated them — See below

Why I blog
I think my little life is very interesting. No seriously. My human was too busy lazy in France to start my blog, so I only had my Facebook Page, but now that my brothers and I had traveled so far, I needed a blog to tell my story.
Plus now I want to share with you the heavenly enlightenment of the nip I received.
Most importantly, it is a way to meet new furriends =^.^=

Here are my ten nominees:
=^.^= Sammy
=^.^= My furriends Hemingway and Shakespeare at Two Cats’ View
=^.^= My furriends Nellie and Kozmo
=^.^= Mollie and Alfie
=^.^= Easy
=^.^= Bowie
=^.^= Archie, Oscar and Henry
=^.^= It’s a Pussy Cat’s Life
=^.^= Angel’s Whisper
=^.^= My furriends at Manx Mnews

Now the rules for the Super Sweet Blogger Award are:

1. The nominee has to thank the person that nominated them — Done
2. Answer the 5 Super Sweet Questions — See below
3. Nominate a bakers dozen of other Super Sweet Bloggers and let them know — A dozen?! See below

Me thinks this award is better suited (vocab building project VBP) for humans (especially the sweet food part), but here we go.
1. Cookies or Cake?
Tuna cake!
2. Chocolate of Vanilla?
Er, nip?
3. What is your favourite sweet treat?
Er, the new Greenies, salmon flavor.
4. When do you crave sweet things the most?
All the time, why?
5. If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?
I know my human would call me cupcake. Hmph.

Now for my nominees:
=^.^= Terri’s Kitchen
=^.^= Hey… It’s Jet Here
=^.^= Janina
=^.^= Sammy
=^.^= Savannah
=^.^= These Days of Mine
=^.^= The Sugarlump
=^.^= A German Expat’s Life in Texas
=^.^= Brown Pony Tail
=^.^= My new furriend Mr. Jeeves
=^.^= Imagination is Spicy
=^.^= Easy

Now TGIF, I need a nap.

Enjoy your Friday everyone!

  1. Wow, congrats on those two awards. You really deserve them too. They are pretty ones. It is so sad when all our fur friends go to the bridge. Take care and have a great week end.

  2. Hey Texas, Jet here.

    Thank you on two accounts (I’m taking a Business module at Scooby Doo Academy!):

    For kindly paying homage to our sweet boy, Fluffy. Yes, we believe they are all playing over the Rainbow Bridge, too. :)

    Bestowing this cool new award on our blog. You know JJ and I LOVE our Kitchen K9 jobs, so, this has extra meaning for us. Whoo hoo!

    Concatulations on your awards, most deserved. Love the new questions! We’re so fortunate to have connected with you.

  3. Thanks Texas we have few followers who regularly visit, but it makes it worthwhile when we get awards like this and have you guys comment and provide input regularly xxxx.

Mom and I will work to add them to my bling area of my blog AND on my compliance with the “rules” as well! We agree that it has been a sad week but we know The Bridge is a very happy place so we’ll think of our friends playing in the sun and watching over us all – I’m SURE there’s an endless supply of catnip over the Bridge :D.

  17. Texas
    Thank you for thinking of us for this wonderful award. I will make sure Momma follows through on it for us.
    We understand how you feel about loss. It is one thing that surprised us, and something that we had never considered when we first began blogging. We’ve seen a lot of passages since we started.
    Hope this weekend brings you joy.
    ✿•*¨`*•. ♥Abby♥Boo♥Ping♥Jinx♥Grace♥✿•*¨`*•.

  18. Thank you so much for remembering Zac and so appropriately in the treat cupboard where he loved to go.
    The Princess and I, his Beloved are hurting so much right now but we have been helped by all the support of his online friends.
