Can't Believe It One, Two, Three, Four Awards

Hi Pals,

This has been quite a week for awards.  I'm sorry we are so late with posting about them, but I've kept my typist busy on Twitter this week typing for the  NCMonthly's pawty.  Therefore, she claims she didn't have time.  Since we started this I have now received two more awards.  To save time we are going to combine all the awards into this one post, so bear with us please.  

The Illuminating Blogger award was presented to me by:
illuminating Blogger Award:
1.@Nerissathecat over at  and 
2.Audrey over at 

Sunshine Award:
1.Herman @TattleCat over at and

Woooweee!   I'm overwhelmed - 4 awards in a week.  Talk about being lucky  And, these are some tough acts to follow.  All of the above have excellent bloggies, so please go over and take a look at them.

There are specific rules that go with each award.  Since I received the Illuminating Blogger Award first, we'll begin with that one.  

1.   I must give one illuminating fact about myself

I have been a toothless kitty for two years after suffering from Stomatitis,  a serious gum disease.   If this disease is not treated properly, it can lead to other serious health issues, and you could eventually die from it.  ""My Toothie Story" is found in a tab at the top of my blog.  

2. I am supposed to pass this on to 5 other pals.  

There are so many worthy blogs and it was tough to narrow it down to five.  Since I received this award from 2 different pals, technically that means I should pass it on to 10 other bloggers.   But this award has been circulating awhile, so I've chosen 6 to receive it, but if you would like to participate, please just grab it and fly with it.  hehe   So many pals have already received it.   I'm passing it officially on to:

1.  Katie over at @Glogirly
2.   @Kolo_Martin at 
3.  @Manxmnews at
4.    @Tildatoo
5.    Marq's Animals at  
6.     @MaggieTKat's

Sunshine Award  

The Sunshine Award was presented to me by :

2.      Neora Chana over at

Now I have 7 questions I must answer.

1. My favorite number is 15 because I was adopted by M and D on October 15th. Best day of my life.

2. My favourite non-alcoholic drink is water, he he. A friend gave me a Drinkwell water fountain about two months ago so I have fresh water running all the time. I'm not ever given anything else except water or virtual drinks on Twitter at parties - #nipclub in particular. Then I prefer a niptini or a meowgarita. Oh so good.

3. Do I prefer Facebook or twitter? Twitter because I have more friends over there and it's instant communication.

4. My Passion is to always have attention from a ooman. Either via a lap to sit on or someone to cuddle with, or someone to play with me on my terms. Sisfur says I'm a needy cat. he he

5. My Favorite Pattern. I never thought about this one before, but I guess it would be the pattern of getting my meals on time and not having to wait. What better pattern could there be. hehe

6. My Favorite Day Of The Week - Don't really have one anymore. When M and D worked and were gone all day, I would have said Saturday or Sunday. But now that they are tired, he he, it's any day of the week. Maybe Sunday would be the best because M and I sometimes spend the afternoon in her recliner while she pretends to read the newspaper, but we both nod off.

7. My Favorite Flower would have to be catmint plant flowers. ooooh they do smell good back in the garden. I could spend hours back there hiding among the leaves just sniffing away.

I'm supposed to pass this on to 10 other bloggers, but since this has been circulating awhile, I'm going to choose only 6 with the hopes they don't have it yet. If any reader does not have it yet and woulld like it, please help yourself. Otherwise, I'm passing it to:

1. Marg over at  - A wonderful lady who helps animals without homes.
2. Kiellebus    - my Sweedish pal who is very very handsome.
3. @Dash Kitten over at - Who has a heart of gold and always helping others out,
4. @PrancerPie who has a cute bloggy and two gorgeous sisters.  (Swoon)  
5.  GronkandDizzie   The adventures of Gronk and Dizzie  - shhh they know how to use the human litter box too!!
6.  @PumpkinPuddy Pumpkin is one  lucky kitty cuz she has a stroller and gets to go places the rest of us kitties don't get to go - like state parks.   She's always have lots of adventures.

Sorry we're so late with this post,.  I told M she has to be more timely next time.  Hmmm, I think it might be time for a performance appraisal.   I'm making note  of this.

I also has to apologize for not visiting faithfully lately - M says she just doesn't know where the time goes, but it goes too fast and she doesn't get anything done.  I say - excuses - nothing but excuses.

Love to you all

Dear Mario,

Please thank your parents for offering to help the PM learn how to copy and paste badges. It is very kind of them. Thank you for the kind words about my blog.

It so happens that the Realm of Capitol Drive falls within the human boundries of Wisconsin, so we are neighbors!
