Thanks Friends!

Standard

Hi Everyone – another exciting week off to a grand start huh?   Well, at least it’s starting – who knows if it will be “grand”!

I need to say THANK YOU to two of my friends who nominated One Spoiled Cat for blog awards in the past week.   I have both of these awards already but one should ALWAYS thank those who honor them in some way even if you have received the honor before.   At least that’s what I think!

First The Mad Hooligan Chronicles nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award.   Thank you Bo and Kobi!

CREATIVEBLOGGERAWARD

The rules are:

1.  Mention who nominated you for the award and link back to them.

2.  Display the award image above your post.

3.  Share FIVE random facts about yourself.

4.  Nominate as many blogs as you wish (with a minimum of five) and notify them of their nomination   (in this case, please if you would like to have this award for your VERY own, take it from this post with my love and hugs as I really don’t know who would and who would not enjoy receiving it!)

5.  Pass the Rules on to your nominees.

Here are my FIVE Random Facts!

  1. Even though I’m “out there” on my blog, I’m a very shy guy in person…..I recently extended my boundaries though when we had company and allowed petting and carrying of my ginger self!
  2. I can say several words (at least Mom thinks they sound like words)…..I say “OUT”, “MAMA”, and “YOYO” (yogurt).
  3. I am part “watch cat” – if a neighborhood cat comes on my front porch, I will yell “MAMA” until my Mom comes and shoooos the visitor away (or feeds him or her!).
  4. Most of you know I’m a polydactyl kitty – I have SIX toes on my front paws and the regular amount of toes on my back paws (just in case some of you didn’t know!).
  5. I enjoy being a Cat Scout.   Cat Scouts have a whole lot of fun – we go on trips, earn merit badges, make new friends and do service projects just like human Scouts do!

The second award I received was from my friends Dezi and Lexi at Dezie’s World.   They nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.   Thank you ladies!!

very-inspiring-blogger-award

This one requires that you nominate 15 blogs and I have a terrible time nominating ANY blogs as I have so many of you that I follow and don’t want to leave anyone out – I usually just say please take this award with my blessings if you would like to follow the rules!

All you have to do beyond that is:

  1. Mention who nominated you, thank them and link back to them.
  2. Display the award on your blog.
  3. List THREE things that inspired you in the last week.

The three things that inspired me this past week are:

  1. Meeting a blogger friend of my Mom’s and learning to TRUST a stranger – I rarely let anyone even SEE me if I don’t know them but my Mom’s friend inspired me to be brave.
  2. Reading the blogs of so many of my friends who are unwell yet carry on with a smile and a cheery message to the world in spite of any sorrow or discomfort they may have.
  3. Waking up every morning and realizing that I’m traveling into my senior years in better shape than many of my older friends……this inspires me to put one paw in front of the other every day.

So, thank you to my friends – and remember, if you’d like to have either or both of these awards, I hope you can do a better job of fulfilling the requirements than I have done – as I said, I have a hard time nominating “just five” or “just 50” of my friends………I would give it to EVERYONE if I could………….

Love and Hugs

and SEE YOU TOMORROW

FOR TEASER TUESDAY!!!!!

  1. Concatulations! I was surprised that you said hello to Michelle … I’m sure you knew that she is a purrfect cat-mom, right? I saw your “watch cat” look yesterday, bet that’s the look what makes all evil peeps running :o) I’m ready fur tomorrow, mom promised me to take NO drugs before the teaser… and my dad said: Maine, USA :o)

    • HAHAHAHA…….guess what – I, Swami Sam the Fortune Teller feel CONFIDENT in telling you to tell your Dad he is a BIG GREENIE WINNER if he says Maine! I purrrrrrromise it will NOT be Maine! HAHAHA As for your Mom and drugs – tell her to keep away from the Wasabi nuts so she can TYPE on the keypad! I was very brave with Miss Michelle AND Mr. Craig……Mom was so proud of me.

      Hugs, Sammy

    • I think cats “know” cat people…..we can tell which humans are happy to see us and which are either afraid of us or allergic to us or just not interested in us. Miss Michelle was obviously a “Cat Mom” and I knew it!!!! Good luck on the Teaser – you never know when you will KNOW!

        • It’s a GUEST TEASER tomorrow…………..! I have only one time EVER in my 15 years come out of hiding when strangers are here…..and this bit of bravery in the last year too so Mom says because I’m getting older, I’m becoming more RELAXED. Maybe that’s it…….but she’s always happy when I make an appearance because everyone calls me the invisible cat otherwise. HAHAHA

          Hugs, Sammy

    • Hi Miss Pix! We’ve noticed a lot of birdie activity around here too – nice to hear isn’t it? Is it being drowned out by tractor activity there? (wink) Yep – Miss Michelle carried me and I looked kind of freaked out but I let her do it and Mom was in shock. HAHAHAHA We had SNOW this morning when Mom and I were outside at 4AM but now it’s just cloudy and looks like it’s about to rain – it’s 48 so it wouldn’t be snow at least! WHERE IS SPRING?!

      Love, Sam

      • SPRING is here today! So is a NEW bobcat down the road putting in the driveway for a house that is being built. Maniac Marv hasn’t been around for a bit… he will be back! We can still hear the birds over the roar… LOL! Sorry about the snow and rain, it’s just wrong in the worst way you do not have sunshine today!

          • Do not move to the country in MissouREE for peace and quiet. Too many testosterone-laden men and boys with tractors, chainsaws, GUNS, farm trucks with no mufflers or exhausts altered to make the most noise, ATVs, dirt bikes, Harleys and brush hogs. Does it sound like I am trying to make myself move to a peaceful city?

          • A city would BE peaceful considering what you put up with in “the country” !!!! HAHAHAHAHA……………know what? It’s kinda like that in my so-called small Virginia town too. Whatever happened to “quiet in the country” ???!!!

    • Oh I bet Callie says a lot of words – maybe even when you aren’t around to hear!!! I kind of learned how to talk by repeating what my Mom said to me………..when I stand at the door she says “OUT?” so I learned that one quickly, and when she does something for me she always says “Mom’s here” or “Mama is here” so that was another easy one. I just am mimicking her really but it’s fun to have a conversation!

      Hugs, Sammy
