Our blogging friends have been very kind, having bestowed a number of awards upon us and we thought we would use the next few Thursdays to display the awards and be thankful for our wonderful friends...

We received The Life Is Good Award from our lovely friend Liz from Lizzie's Logic and from our handsome friends Smudge and Spider and Max The Quilt Cat; this award contains an interview for Mom, so she included questions from each blog...

1. What would your perfect day consist of? A day with the people and cats I love at the beach!
2. Savory snacks or sweet puddings? Savory snacks.
3. What hobbies are you currently working on? My blog is my biggest hobby at the moment; it takes up a lot of time!
4. A cozy winter's eve by the hearth or a warm summer's day by the sea? A warm summer's day by the sea!
5. Have you ever hugged or sung to a tree? I have hugged a tree, never sung to one!
6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket? Supermarket.
7. What is the most memorable dream you have ever had? A few different dreams in which I was visited by the people/cat I love who have passed on=my Grandparents, Rob and Nikki.

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or Water? Water.
10. Do you believe in fairies? Yes, I believe in fairies and angels.

Our new friend, Lazaro at Lazaro Cooks! gave us The Lovely Blog Award, which is exactly the way we feel about his blog; Lazaro and his cousin, Nancy, offer unique and wonderful recipes and his kind personality shines through every post...Lazaro and his wife also have 3 beautiful kitties!


Our sweet, fun friends at Kitty Trio and TK-Furrever Home gave us The Happy Cat Award!...Those who receive this award should link to the blog that gave them the award and list 5 things that make them happy.

5 Things That Make Us Happy:
1. Treats and nip.
2. Playing with our toys.
3. Living in our happy, loving home.
4. Watching Bird and Squirrel TV.
5. Our blogging friends.
Their new turbo track toy makes my girls happy...

My silly, playful Sukki was the first one to really enjoy it...

We are cats and we play by our own rules, so we want our blogging friends to pick an award that they would like and accept it from us with love and friendship.

Thankful Thursday

We were very excited and thankful to be accepted by our sweet friend, Inigo, into the Good Kitty Club as Charter Members...Since we are also proud members of the Naughty Kitty Club, we should probably explain our duel membership: We are usually VERY good girls, but we have our naughty moments and well, we are kitties and do not follow rules, so we decided to embrace both sides of our personality and be members of both clubs!...As for Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat, well, they are outdoor cats and need to maintain their naughty reputation for obvious reasons; don't tell anyone, but they are usually VERY good kitties too!

The Story of Daddy Cat, Mommy Cat and Jax

Today would be my adorable Jax's 9th birthday, so I thought I would share his story in remembrance of the sweetest boy I have ever known and it all began when his Daddy Cat entered my life...

Daddy Cat was born in my garage on May 2, 2000, when a stray in my neighborhood decided to adopt me; I called them Orange Cat/Mom and White Cat/Daddy...I had Orange Cat fixed and mother and son ran around together until Orange Cat disappeared on Halloween 2000; the very next morning, a kitten about 8 weeks old was sleeping in some Tupperware in my garage and she and White Cat became fast friends...On May 13, 2001/Mother's Day!, that little girl gave birth to a litter in my garage and I kept 1 of their kittens, a beautiful sweet boy named Jax=which is how Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat got their names at the vet when I took them to get fixed!...They made a fabulous family; Jax was a smaller version of Daddy Cat and they were best friends who went everywhere together, I was blessed to witness such devotion in their family unit...Jax was the sweetest boy I have ever known...He loved me and trusted me so much, he came home when he was bitten by a snake in August 2005 and cried for me with all his might; I rushed him to the vet and he went into a coma in my arms there...He received a blood transfusion from Daddy Cat (you have to provide the blood-who knew??...I was about 3 miles from the vet so I rushed home and grabbed Daddy Cat, thank goodness he was there)...Anyway, I had to leave Jax for 5 days, picking him up from the regular vet every evening at 5pm to drop him off at the Emergency Clinic until 7 am the next morning and starting over at the regular vet again so he could have around the clock treatment...I moved Jax into my home for about 6 weeks after he came home to recuperate; Calle and Halle thought he was their boyfriend...He was such a wonderful kitty to everyone (he was very good to my first Siamese, Nikki too; she was a senior kitty and he always approached her with love and kitty kisses!!)...Anyway, sadly, Jax disappeared from my front porch on July 9, 2007; I put out hundreds of flyers and visited the pound every other day for about 2 months, walked the neighborhood for those 2 months, but never found him...It will always haunt me not knowing what happened to him and not having his body to show Mommy and Daddy so they would understand; they both grieved for Jax by not hardly leaving the front yard for months, waiting for him to come home...My Nikki's death was the biggest heartbreak of my life, she was my baby for 20 years (1984-2004), but I consider Jax's disappearance the biggest kitty tragedy of my life, I will always regret losing him too soon...He was a special, fun boy with so much love to give; his picture is on my sidebar, along with my Nikki...I am so thankful for all the kitties that have brought so much love into my life.

Jax came into my life and left paw prints on my heart...

RIP sweet Jax

Halle Behind Bars

When someone is at the door, this is Halle's favorite spot, about halfway up the stairs; she can see what's going on from a safe distance with an easy escape=just in case!
