An Award AND Pre-Tease Monday!


Hello All!    Are you ready for tomorrow’s Teaser?   Hummmmm????   Good – remember it will pop up at a surprise time so be purrrrpared!    I’m still wrangling with Mom about which photo to use so can’t tell you if it will be a Guest Teaser or not so just be ready for WHATEVA.

Now, on to the AWARD part.   My good new friend Doctor Phoebe and her beautiful cat Samantha nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.   I received this one several times long ago but it HAS been a couple of years, so I am happily “re-accepting” (?) the nomination for this award from them.   If you don’t know Puppydoc (Dr. Phoebe’s nickname) and her kitty, you should visit.  It’s a wonderful blog.

Here’s the award badge………………….


The rules of acceptance are:

1-Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog in the post.
2-Copy the rules and add the blog award badge as an image
3-Share 7 facts about yourself to your fellow bloggers.
4-Then nominate up to 15 people.

Thank you dear Doctor Phoebe………you’re a most special lady doing a most special job and I bet you are happy to get home to your pretty kitty girl Samantha after a busy day at work.   I appreciate you nominating me for this award!   I’ve linked to you above.    I’ve also posted the award rules and the badge so that takes care of #1 and #2 on the rules!

For #3, here are seven facts about ME ME ME!

  1. I think everyone knows this by now but just in case you don’t, I’m a polydactyl ginger kitty – I have “thumbs” on my front paws so one extra toe on each!
  2. I am an “only cat” in my house and that’s why I named my blog “ONE SPOILED CAT” – because I most definitely AM just that!
  3. I am a Cat Scout – an organization of all cats which is based on “Boy/Girl Scouts” and where we earn merit badges, go on Quests together, have Patrols and Troops and EVERYTHING!    If you’re a cat, you should join up!  I’m a Troop Leader (The Wildcats Troop) and I’d LOVE to have you join us!
  4. My Mom has written a mystery novel, two childrens books, edited a book of poetry for a publisher, and was one of five women who wrote a book about “womens journeys” in short story form.  Sadly the short story book is out of print now.   You are saying “that’s not about YOU Sammy – it’s about your Mom” but you see I helped her and was the inspiration for both of the kids books!
  5. I am an inside kitty BUT from kittenhood when I first came to live here after I was adopted, I wear a harness if I’m going outside in the dark.  Otherwise I can go outside as long as my Mom or my Dad is with me.   Honestly though, at my age of 16 I prefer being INSIDE and napping!!!!
  6. I love to graze on the grass when I’m outside.
  7. I like Mango juice.   Yes – I said MANGO JUICE.   Mom left her glass by her chair a couple of weeks ago and when she came back I was slurping it up like crazy.   Mom won’t let me have it now because it has sugar in it but it SURE WAS DELICIOUS!!!

So there you have it.   Seven things about me.  Now for my nominations……………I think most of you have received this award like I have in the past.   It’s really fun that we’re beginning to see some of these again though don’t you think?   If you don’t want to accept the nomination, I will understand, but if you would like to, here are my nominees!

Tons of Hugs,

    • This is some kind of juice blend with mango as the MAIN thing but there are other juices in it – that MAY be why I like it – it’s SWEET…….I think plain mango might not be……..

      Love, Sammy


  1. I love reading answers to these sort of awards. They are always interesting as we get facts we didn’t know about our furriends. Love and smoochies…


  2. That was interesting because I knew you were a polydactyl pussy cat but I always wondered how many and where? I read that there were many variations. You are a most handsome cat Sammy. ❤️


  3. ConCATulations on the AWARD….
    You do KNOW that WE are NO good at this guessing thingy… Don’t you? WE couldn’t even get our OWN CUSSIN’s thingy right.


    • Thanks for the concats on the award guys……if you stop by tomorrow you just never know – people have told me they had no idea where the photo was taken then WHAMMO just when they are about to give up, they figure it out!

      Hugs, Sammy


  4. Congratulations on your award and thank you so much for the nomination. I have another one to write about tomorrow, but I will do this one in a few days. I thought I knew everything about you Sammy, but I didn’t know about the Mango juice- that is funny 🙂 XO


    • The mango juice thing is relatively NEW……Mom and Dad drink it now – it’s actually mango juice with some other juices mixed in; apple, grape and maybe one other thing I can’t remember. But it BASICALLY is mango juice and it is REALLY yummy.

      Hugs, Sammy


  5. Double bravo on your well deserved award. MOLMOL mango juice…
    you musta been really thirsty. But you know everything is better out of the peeps
    cups or off their plates.
    Hugs madi your bfff


    • I’ve heard you say that about cantaloupe before – I may have to give that a try……the mango juice I “accidentally on purpose” tried out from Mom’s glass was sweet but I think it had some other juices mixed in with it. Straight mango might be less sweet!

      Love, sammy


  6. Mango Juice, Sammy?? Really? Well congrats at getting the award and you nominated moi….well I’ll be bald headed! Thank you so much my friend, I got some happy mews out of your disclosures about your life. The mango juice had me ROTFMOL….good one.

    Big hugs,



    • Pretty interesting huh? We cats have some gourmet tastes that’s for sure but who knew Mango Juice could be one of them – I’m sure there’s all kinds of things about it that I SHOULD NOT have, but it was nice to have a taste of it!

      Love, Sammy


  7. Congratulations on your award. You are so deserving and think every day you should have an award given to you or your mommie. I have known you such a long time but did not know you liked mango juice. Thank you for thinking of me and awarding me with this nice award.
    Hope to make it tomorrow for the teaser.


    • Hi Gracie! It’s super duper fun to see you here!!! Thanks for the concats on the award. I think we’ve all seen that one before but it’s always nice to get nominated isn’t it!! Mango juice is a NEWLY ACQUIRED thing for me – just in the last couple of months…..When Mom wasn’t looking I had a taste and it was FAB!

      Love, Sammy
