Wednesday Stuff


You can tell by my face i am stunned by getting mail from Max...or maybe I'm still a little high.

Something amazing happened yesterday. I got a package from Max! Yup, one of the most famous kitties in the world held a contest and I won. Mommy and I sat on the sofa with an afghan on her legs and started reading it.



Dewey, The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron, is going to be a very good book. Here is an excerpt "It was huddled in the front left corner of the box, its head down, its legs tucked underneith it, trying to appear as small as possible...The kitten looked up at me, slowly and sadly. Then it lowered its head and sank down into its hole..." Isn't that heartbreaking? If we didn't know that Dewey lead a happy and long loved life after being rescued, we'd be on the floor sobbing.



We are also reading "Just This Side of Heaven, Penny's story" by Timothy Glass that we won in the Cheezits raffle. This is such a fun book about a woofie who chews shoes (Bendrix really likes this) and there are cute pictures of Penny, her sister Panda, brothers Gunner and Tyler. The window washing "scene" was so funny. We think even cat lovers will appreciate the bond between Timothy, his wife and their woofies.

I was also given some great awards! The pretty House Panther Diamond Emerald Eyes gave me the BFF Award.


I would like to pass this award on to all of you because I hope we'll all be blogging together forever.

The sweet and pretty Miz Allie Cat gave me the Brilliant Weblog Award!

Here are the rules:
1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

There are so many great blogs out there it will be hard to choose only 7. Sigh. OK, here it goes:
Derby the Sassy Cat
Castle
Diamond Emerald Eyes
My Sweet Lady Cat Brandi
Grr, Midnight & Cocoa
Miss Peach
The Cheezits

and because I have an evil alter ego who does what he wants, we're going to pass this award on to ALL our Gulf Coast friends who are surviving hurricane season.

Did you know that Dewey the cat invented the dewey decimal system which is used to organize books in libraries. This is why humans can never find the books they need, because they do not understand system.

Thank you for the award!

Be careful inhaling your foods, or you will spit them back out again.

Congratulations on winning the contest and on getting all those cool awards. You certainly deserve them. Thanks for dropping by.

Not such good news about Charlotte. Her mom had an accident and required a knee operation. Since then she has had some problems and has been quite depressed. Even my SS had trouble getting into contact with her.
