Furrriday Fun

Standard

Happy Furrriday Folks!

The very first thing I want to share is that my very good friend Nerissa of Nerissa’s Life honored me with a brand, spanking (ouch) new award courtesy of his very creative Mom’s artistic talents.  It’s called the “Why I Love Thee Award” and it’s beautiful……..

Why I Love Thee award

Nerissa’s Mom created the new award originally to celebrate Nerissa’s 25,000 hit mark on the blog BUT the timing is pretty darn good for Valentine’s Day too don’t you think?  It’s ALL ABOUT LOVE. 

It’s also very easy to comply with the rules of acceptance…..VERY.  First you thank the friend who passed the award to you (SAMMY HUGS AND THANKS TO YOU NISSY!), you link back to their blog (DONE), then comes the super easy part…….if you’re a pet you tell everyone why you love your human/biped/peep/human…..and if you’re a human getting the award you tell why you love your pet!   Last but not least, you pass the award to more blog buddies (at least one but no limit on number).

Why I Love My Mom and Dad  by Sammy Kimmell

Thirteen years ago I was in a shelter all alone in a tiny cage….since I was already tiny, I didn’t know the world could be so big.    But it didn’t matter because all of a sudden I was with two humans who were kind to me, gave me a safe place to live, yummy food and so very much love.   When I’m sad they make me happy, when I’m sick they take me to the doctor, when I’m lonely they keep me company, when I want a nap, Mom’s lap is ALWAYS available.  When Mom’s away, Dad takes care of me and we “hang out” together like guys do.  I wish I could live my last thirteen years all over again because every minute (even when I’m at the vet’s) has been precious to me.  Every time I can softly touch my Mom’s face with my paw, or look her in the eye and wink, or curl up in a warm ball on her lap in the most vulnerable of ways, I feel all the love a kitty can feel and my heart is full.

Feeling safe and loved on Mom's lap.....

Feeling safe and loved on Mom’s lap…..

Who can I pass this new award to?  Well, I’m sure the recipients of this will be passing it around like crazy – and there will be many duplicate awards made so if that happens, just FEEL THE LOVE from all the friends who nominate you!  I know that’s what Nerissa and his Mom would want.

  2. Aw, Sammy, what a sweet love note to your pawrents! (sniff, sniff….) One of these days, maybe I’ll be the loving lap kitty that you are… Motor Mommy’s sure hoping so!
    Thank you so furry much for the award – it’s beautiful. I’ll try to get Mommy to sit still long enough to write an acceptance post!
    Love you – we’re so fortunate to be warm, dry and loved in this bad weather, aren’t we??

  3. Oh, Sammy, what a beautiful description of the love you have for your pawrents and they have for you! I wish every kitten and grown up cat alone in cages could find a loving home like you have….and my babies have!

    • Hi Miss June……glad you liked today’s post “full of love”…..I too wish every cat (and other animal) could be as happy as I am in a house instead of in a cage or even worse on their own out in the big scary world.

      Have a super HAPPY Friday

  5. Congratulations!!! Oh Sammy, how nice! Thank you! Roses say: lest we forget. And that’s a wonderful rose, of course ;o) I wish we all could live to all eternity – maybe I can find a way via magic or my Bad Idea Catalog? Thanks again for nominating me and have a wonderful furday ;o)

    • Hi Easy! I wish we could live forever too – although cats DO have nine lives so maybe in a way we kind of DO live forever??? I saw on your blog today that your wounded paw isn’t any better 😦 I do hope it starts getting better soon. Perhaps a magic spell on that paw is in order?????

        • I’m sorry to hear that Easy! Tongue-therapy is something we all seem to think is GOOD for our wounds and itchy spots but it never really is….just keeps them from healing I guess. As for your secret lab experiment on living forever? If you need a lab assistant I’m available!!

    • Hi Pix! It would be tough for her to escape me when I’m “UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL” like that wouldn’t it? Tee Hee……I’m sneaky like that. I am a very lucky guy and my #1 wish would be all kitties and pups and homeless animals could be as lucky as I have been……..
