Clean Slate

Christmas is so exhausting!

Hi Pals,

A couple of days ago I had a staff meeting with M and laid down a few expectations.   Today I'm concentrating on one of those expectations - the posting of awards received in a timely fashion: Goal - Passing it on the same week I received it.   That shouldn't be asking too much - do you think?  So today I'm going to catch up and pass on two.  

The Sisterhood Of The World Blogger Award was presented to me by McGuffy Ann at   She writes a delightful blog of a mixed variety - but such a joy to read.  She even has a couple of kitties who also post now and then.   Thank you friend for this great award.   

Here are the rules:

1. Provide a link to and thank the blogger who nominated you for this award (done)
2. Answer ten questions: .

     1. Your favorite color? Blue but you would never know it.
     2. Your favorite animal? I love them all. I love cats, mousies, gerbils and Doggies, etc.
     3. Your favorite non-alcoholic drink? I don’t drink alcohol except virtual alcohol at #nipclub. I do drink a lot of water.
     4. Facebook or Twitter? I'm, on both but never seem to get over to do either.
     5. Your favorite pattern? Huh!!! I'm more of a texture kitty.
     6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents? I love getting prezzies, but I also like to give them equally as well.

     7. Your favorite number? 3
     8. Your favorite day of the week? Any day is good.
     9. Your favorite flower? I love sniffing any flower
    10. What is your passion? Writing my bloggy, visiting with my pals on Blogosphere and Twitter and helping with tweets to find kitties homes..

3. Nominate 10-12 (if possible) blogs that you find a joy to read. I find it a challenge to nominate 10-12 - because I think this award has circulated a couple of times already. I'll do 5: They are:

4. Provide links to the nominated blogs and kindly let the recipients know they have been nominated. I would love to nominate everyone, but I realize some don't do awards. I have, and I haven't at times. I understand both choices. I appreciate all of you, anyway!

5. Include the award logo within your blog post. Done

Thank you again Ann for this award. M was going to post this from her bloggy, but she doesn't have enough followers at this point, so she said I can do it. Mario Smooches to you.


Now I has another award to pass on - the Isn/t it amazing!

My good friend Savvy over at presented me with this award. Thank you very much Savvy.   Savvy writes a great blog and has helped so many homeless kitties that I can't even count anymore.

Now there are some rules for this award too and you can read all about them at The Thought Palette…they started this pawsome award last year. But basically the rules are the same as above.

I have already linked back to the friend who gave me the award. Now I can pass this along up to 15 other blogs. Because this is another award that has been passed around a bit, I'm going to choose only 5 here too. They are: And two blogs that actually follow M's bloggy, but they visit my bloggy sometimes too - and we appreciate that. They are and
Thanks again to Ann and to Savvy for giving me these great awards.

Whew - I got both of these awards just before Christmas and already managed to pass them on. Maybe I can re-train M after all.

Concatulations on your award, Mario!

Katie Isabella said...

You are totally adorable. Mario, I could watch you all day long.

The Island Cats said...

Good job putting your paw down and insisting that M post your awards. We need to do that with our mom. We've received a number of awards recently...some a couple of times...and the mom did not keep track and now we don't know what awards we got and who they are from. We're so embarrassed.

But congrats on your awards, Mario.

Cathy Keisha said...

HAH! When you get M trained, can you come over here and train TW? She still hasn’t posted about the last 2 awards I’ve gotten. Hiss on her.

Concats on those awards. You deserve them.

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Concats on your awards and getting them posted in a timely manner! After you re-train your human, could you do ours? We received an award a month ago and she can't track down who sent it to us. MOL!

Katnip Lounge said...

We have to agree...TEXTURE is all important! ConCATS on your awards, AND putting your paw down!

GLOGIRLY said...

Congrats on the award, Mario!
It's always fun to learn a few new things about our friends!

We hope your holiday was wonderful! Filled with lots of love.

Merry Belated Christmas & Happy New Year!

Geez, Mario, now you're gonna make me look bad, Buddy. I tried to make that same resolution but I am ALREADY behind by two or three. Sigh. Well, I guess I should use your example to make me catch up this coming week, but I dunno. The Human is pretty hopeless. Merry Christmas a little belatedly to you and your peeps!
