Double Dose of Reality


My goodness!  I want to thank TWO different blogs for awarding me the “Reality Blog Award” which is a new one for me.   No sooner did I read Princess Zena’s blog to discover she’d nominated me than I read Hutch A  Good Life and discovered the guinea pig boys nominated me as well! 

Am I excited about that?  You betcha!   Here’s the award:


The rules for this one are (1) visit the blog that nominated you and thank them (done – BOTH of them!), (2) Link back to the blog that nominated you (done – BOTH of them!), (3) Nominate up to 20 blogs, (4) Display the award (if I can get my Mom to do some catch up on badge display I’ll have complied with that one too!  (5) Answer five questions.

Here are the questions and my answers (by the way, both Zena and the Hutch boys sure had GREAT answers to these questions themselves!):

1.  If you could change one thing, what would you change?  I’d like to be not quite as shy and afraid of other cats as I am because then I might be able to have a “companion”….although I do enjoy getting ALL my parents attention!

2.  If you could repeat an age, what would it be?  Any year?  I suppose this means repeating an age that I’ve been?  I’d love to be a kitten again – everything was so BIG and so EXCITING and so NEW.   My first year would be FUN to repeat!

3.  What is one thing that really scares you?  The doorbell ringing.  I head for the basement.  There are lots of things that scare me though…..I hate to admit it but it’s true.  I’m a true “feral” !

4.  What is one dream you have not yet completed and do you think you will be able to complete it?  I want to live with my parents at least another 13 years – I truly love my life and my parents and I pray that I will be able to complete this dream. 

5.  If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be?  I wouldn’t mind being a bird for a day – any bird – I just think it would be wonderful to fly. 

As for nominating other blogs?  This award kind of quickly made the rounds so I may be repeating some but here are some friends I don’t think (!!) have been nominated yet!

These Days of Mine

Miss Satchie


Bailey Boat Cat

Cats & Co.

Katie & Coccolino

Any of my other friends who would like the award – PLEASE help yourselves and follow the rules if you decide to take it OK?  It’s impossible to know who DOES and who DOESN’T want more awards!

What else am I up to this fine Sunday?  Well, we’re supposed to have an incredibly SPRING-LIKE day and it’s still too early to see if that’s gonna happen or not…..but if it does, I’ll be out in the yard at least part of the day………..sniffing around looking for the trail of Mr. Soggy Bottom Possum, checking out the activity by the bird feeders in the backyard, and having a munch on the grass.  You might say it will be a TASTE OF SPRING!

Fresh air!

Happy Sunday all…………….

Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀

P.S.  I do believe Samuel Hitchcat will be making an appearance on Monday! 😉

    • Hi Herman…..I was just about to notify all Sam’s nominees – one thing about the time difference and my scheduling the posting of Sam’s blog so much earlier than we actually get up (!!). Please give Bowie a hug for me – was just reading in the Sunday paper that “THE” Bowie (David) will have a new album coming out soon. 😀



  1. Good morning, Sammy! Gee, thanks for the award! I’ll get Motor Mommy to work on an acceptance post right away. (Although, you know how busy these humans are with OTHER matters…)
    Hope you get that spring-like day. It’s still foggy here!
    Love, Sundae


    • Hi Sundae… window watching for you until this fog burns off! You’ll just have to curl up on your pile of quilts and snooze…..sounds good doesn’t it?! I’m glad you like your award….!

      Love, Sammy


  2. Concatulations!! Well deserved NEW bling! We’re foggier here today than yesterday.but promises of sun at least part of the day. Right now, I’m wondering about that. Glad you had a chance to munch a little grass and try to sniff out Mr.Soggy Bottom Possum.
    Foggy hugs,


  3. Concatulation!!! May all your wishes came true!!!! And hey, you have a hang-glider – you can fly like a bird every time ;o) but if you want to be a bird fo a day – how about to be a parrot… you could fly and talk – what a fun!!!


    • Hi Mr. Leo! Doggy does like the water and since it’s warmer there than it is here, I guess he really enjoys that a whole lot (at least he doesn’t have to find a big water bowl to sit in like poor Mr. Possum!!). My Mom says you’re feeling better….I’m so glad!

    • Hi Cupcake! Thanks for the compliments…..I have to be pretty brave to be out in the yard – but then I’m only allowed out there with one of my parents OR on my harness/leash. I can be pretty brave with Mom next to me! 😉

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy


    • I think it would be way cool to fly around up in the sky and spy on everything and everybody…..just ride the air currents anywhere I wanna go – I love watching the hawks drifting in the wind……Mr. Soggy Bottom apparently is either tired of cat food OR has been finding plenty of alternatives to Stevie’s water bowl to indulge in his pasttime of bum-soaking. We’ve had some rain – I think he’s found a puddle or two.

  4. Concatulations Sammy! Mes LOVED your answers. Me understands about being shy and afraid of other cats, but yous know, getting a new cat sibling at our age-even if wes lived with other cats,


    • Hi Nellie! If I wasn’t so afraid of other cats, I think we would have invited Stevie the neighborhood mooch to be a permanent member of the family BUT every time I stick my nose out the door to sniff her and let her sniff me, she tries to scratch me! If I’m out in my yard and she comes along she attacks me! Maybe she just wants to play but it scares me. Guess I’m the ultimate ‘fraidy cat !!!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy
      p.s. Loved your black/white pix!


    • Hi Miss Layla! Guess what… way is it gonna make it to 70 here…the heavy fog is STILL overhead and it’s now almost 2PM….looks like the weather people were WRONG (yet again!!).

      Happy Sunday!
      Love, Sammy


    • Guess what Sparkle…’s almost 2PM here and STILL FOGGY…..they lied to me….they promised me sun and seventy and instead of that I’ve got fifty and fog. Sniff…… thanks for the concats on the award – that’s the “bright spot” in my day!

    • Uhoh…..well, I’m glad he was in a tree and you were down on the ground….even though they supposedly can’t see very well, I’m SURE you wouldn’t want to have a tangle with him!! If I’d been there I’d have climbed up there and given him “what for” though Zena – honest!!

      Kitty Hugs, Sammy
