Top Five and Teeth and Toes

Sigh, Forbes.com did a study of the top five worst cities to be a sports fan. Cincinnati is number 5. I can't say I disagree, but I hate seeing it in black and white. Daddy and I vented our frustration on the mousie on the string toy.

this is where my claws pulled the mouse toy off the string and into my teeths.

Castle made me feel much better by giving me the Gold Card Award! The Gold Card Award, is given to bloggers who "are always working to make things better for all cats and doggies". I feel all warm and fuzzy that such a nice cat as Castle feels that way about me.

I have to give the award to only 5 friends. Four of these friends must be dedicated followers of me and Bendrix's blog. One should be a new blogger and live in a different part of the world. Each awardee must link back to whomever gave the award. It is so hard to choose only 5 friends when so many are deserving.

First my sweet lady cat Brandi. She always keeps up on what is happening in the blogosphere and keeps all who need it in her purrs and prayers. Even when her mommy needed help, she kept all those who needed prayers in her heart.

Grr, Midnight and Cocoa were our first visitors and they do nothing if not support needy kitties, woofies and keep us posted on those who need help. They go above and beyond for sure.

Max is one kick a*s kitty. He is the reason mommy started my blog. When Millie was just a sick, injured kitten that needed a forever home, he lead the charge to raise money for her VET bills. We realized what a great community this is and had to be a part of it. Also, he helps his Woman put together all those books for us that support needy fuzzies. He also poos a will, and that is just good for everyone.

Veronica and Fig help with Veronica's reviews of toys and brushes, and Fig is an honest to goodness therapy cat! He visits beans in nursing homes that need company. Aren't they nice??

I tried very hard to find a new cat blogger that also lives in another country but I couldn't. We googled and everything! So, we are giving this award to Harry, a new blogger, because his beans must be very sweet to take care of him and all his kitten siblings.

Since Harry is not from out of the country, we will balance it out with another brand new blogger, Milo who couldn't get cuter if he tried. He always makes us smile, AND his beans are huge Jimi Hendrix fans. Awesome!

We wish we could give this award to everyone!!

We had a very exciting day for Not the Mama Day yesterday. Mommy found TWO kitties under her car when she left the dentist office yesterday. One climbed right in to the open door! After many many phone calls, the kitties are safely in a foster situation where they will hopefully find a nice forever home soon. The little ginger one is only around 6 months old and not neutered. The black and white is around 4 and has been neutered, his microchip was not updated. Sad. Make sure after your beans move, they update your information!!!
We don't know how they found each other, but we are glad they did so they can be a comfort to each other in their nice warm foster home. It all happened so fast we didn't even get pictures!! Thank you for being such a great role model Mo.

Hi Mr. Hendrix,
Thank you for the award. Your a cool kitty. I was born in the house that my family lives in. They took my mama in last year when she was a tiny kitten...they got her from a neighbor. She had to have lots of flea baths to get rid of the fleas she got while she lived at the other place, but she is better now...though my human mom has lots of scars on her legs from the fleas...nasty bugs! Thank goodness, there are no more.

Congratulations on your award, Mr Hendrix...it's very shiny.

Mitzi pulled the mousie off the string on our cat tree, too. But it's much more fun having the mousie on the floor. We can hit it and chase it all over the place.

You're a very handsome mancat, Mr Hendrix. You make our whiskers quiver.

Congratulations on your award. We wonder if we didn't make the list of worst cities because we don't even have a "Professional" Football team here in LA. What a great way to honor Not the Mama Monday by finding two kitties who needed help and helping them, just as he would do.

Good job getting the mousie off the string, Hendrix, and congratulations on your award :-D It's very well deserved.

PS: That was very good of your Mom to help those kitties find a foster home. I was so sad to read the one's microchip didn't have up to date information.

catsynth said...

We followed your link to the "worst sports cities" article on Forbes. We were surprised to read that the "Bay Area" is considered one of the better deals. Everything here is really expensive, especially the neighborhood around AT&T park (our neighborhood). I guess the tickets aren't too bad in comparison.

Congrats on your award.
