A Lovely Surprise and an Honour

Greetings, Effurybody!

I had such a lovely surprise. I have been nominated by my dear, dear Furriend, Her Miaouwjesty Queen Katie Isabella of Tennessee and the Neighbouring Lands for the Illuminating Blogger Award. 


Mummy and I are ever so honoured. Now, we are supposed to link to the purr-son who gave us the award (which we have done) and to thank them - which we do, most gratefully and humbly. We are so Proud to think we have been able to shine a little Light for somebody, somewhere.

And the third thing we are supposed to do, is to pass the award on to at least five more bloggers. Now, this is the difficult bit - how to choose five out of all the wonderful bloggers out there. Oh, wait - it says "at least" five. That makes it a bit easier. Right, here goes (and in no particular order of purr-ecedence:)

1.  CATachresis
2.   Mariodacat
3.   Nerissa's Life
4.   Lilacs and Cats
5.   Le Monde de Shahlimare
6.   Meowmeowmans

I don't know if you are allowed to nominate the purr-son who gave you the awardie, but if you are, I would also like to give this awardie to the incompurr-able Queen Katie Isabella herself.

Now, I must go and tell the nominees about their awardie and then I must help my Human dress up (as Me) for her (post) Purr-im Pawty.

She'll never get it right without My help (mol)...

Purim is Just Around the Corner

Greetings, Effurybody!

I haven't written much lately because my Human has been hogging the computer all the time. What does she find to do on it? Well you may ask! She says she's writing a novel and she needs the computer, not only to write it but also to do research. I ask you! We are a Single Computer Family and so, while she's working on her silly novel, all I can do is sit on the printer and watch.

Today, she decided that since Sunday is Purim, I should share in the fun and dress up. So she put a funny hat on my head and then took a picture with the gadget she talks into. As you can see, I did my best not to have my picture taken.

I tried very hard to shake it off, but she managed to take a picture before I succeeded. Then she decided that the picture wasn't good enough and she went to get her flashy box - but I was too fast for her, this time. I made my escape and she gave up.

But guess what, kitties! She's going to a Purim pawty next week and she's planning on dressing up as a Pussycat! Now this, I have to see (MOL). She's got a black kitty mask, with whiskers and you should just see her tail! It's greatly inferior to my splendiferous appendage! I can't handle the flashy box, so I hope someone takes her picture at the pawty next week.

Till then - Shabbat Shalom, effuryone. Have a lovely weekend.

The Miaowntaneer

Greetings, Effurrybody!

I have been ever so adventurous this week, and I have discovered some
purr-fectly glorious places to climb. First of all, although it's great fun to sit on Mummy's clean laundry, I find it's even more fun to pull myself up onto the laundry line and sit there before the laundry dries:

Mummy got a bit upset about that, and told me to get down and find some place else so I ran into the kitchen and discovered a Truly Purr-fect Place, where my Human can't possibly follow. It's right on top of the highest of the kitchen cupboards. It's my Mount Effurest!

Of course, when the weather is nice and sunny, as it was for most of the week, it's better to be out of doors, especially if there's a birdie chirping cheekily away right outside the window, almost as if it were taunting Me, knowing I'm trapped indoors and can't get at it. Naturally, I tried to haul myself up, but the kitchen window doesn't have a proper window-sill, so I had to just hang on there as long as I could:

Mummy gave me a special Treat this week. She planted some grass just for Me. She has been growing it, secretly, in the bathroom, so I couldn't get at it so as to keep it a secret till it was fully grown and surprise Me. Today she gave it to Me. Well, as you can imagine, Kitties, since she's always trying to keep Me away from the houseplants, I was suspicious at first. You know what they say: Beware of Greeks Humans bearing gifts. But I couldn't resist for long. It had such a lovely, fresh, grassy scent. (Mummy says to tell you all that it isn't the kind of grass you can get high on. I don't quite understand what that means. Can somebody please explain?) Anyway, as soon as I was sure it wasn't some kind of Devious Trap, I went and lay on it and squashed it all flat and then I started pulling it up by the roots and getting earth all over the place. Mummy did not look happy, but she didn't say anything, just tried to put the earth back. Then I nibbled some of it - quite a lot of it, actually. It was nice. Mummy says not to finish it all off in one go, it takes time to grow.
Wasn't she a thoughtful Mummy? I love her very much. And you can see how much she loves me, can't you?

Well, that's all my news for now. I wish you all a lovely weekend!
