Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Awards! And other stuff too!!

So we got a couple of awards from our friends over at The Paw Relations, home to Thomas O'Toole, Charlie O'Marley and Lola Fannola. First we got the This Blog Makes Me Happy award:

The rules for this one are to post 5 things that make you happy, and pass it on to 5 bloggers.

Since there are 5 kitties, I thought each one should get one item:

Floyd - Floyd says that what makes him happy is knowing that all our blogger friends always send good thoughts for him to get good blood test results when he has to go to the vet. It makes it easier for him to get the blood drawn knowing his friends out there are pulling for him.

Kirzon - Kirzon is happy that we have found a lot of awesome bloggers who make awesome toys full of catnip!! Because he loves his nip!

Lola - Lola is happy when we let her sleep.

Virgil - Virgil is happy that he has wonderful fun toys to play with and tasty food to eat, and that he wasn't the one getting neutered last week.

Barney - Barney is happy when he gets to play with his big brothers, and when he gets to be all snuggly and when he gets his favorite sleeping spot (he is young - everything makes him happy).

I know a lot of you have this one, so if you haven't received it, mention it in the comments and the first 5 of you to do so will get it!

We also got the Blogger Buddy award from them - which is awesome! So we want to pass it on to all our blog friends too!

Ok, so now some non-awards stuff.

Virgil is apparently not too thrilled about being locked out of the bedroom - he has been making noise by pounding on the temporary cardboard barrier we built on the stair rail. He used to do this at night, but he had stopped. Now he has started again - I am hoping that he will stop once I let Barney run around at night again, which will be tonight.

Barney is back to normal completely - he decided to make my face his pillow again last night. It drove me crazy when he did it before but when he stopped I missed it so I am glad he is doing it again. He is also crazy in the morning because when the alarm goes off he knows it is food time - so he will meow til I get up. I guess that is better than Virgil, who has been known to try and take my arm and drag me out of bed (unsuccessful of course).

So I am trying my best to get everyone visited - if I haven't yet I appologize. I keep getting sidetracked, closing the internet and then loosing track of where I have been. Don't take it personally - I am not going in any sort of "I like this blog better" order - it is just what I pick at random. I am trying to use reader and go to the ones with the most posts unread by me in my new technique.

And I will try for pics later but until the new computer arrives they may be tough to post. If I can't I will try and put some old ones up to tide you over!

Those are all great reason s to be happy.

We used to let Charlie and Lola sleep with us when they were really young, but they would keep us awake all night chasing each other under the bed.

So we started shutting them out of the bedroom, which went well for a while until they started scratching at the door and pulling the carpet up!

Those are real good things to be happy about! Congratulations on the awards! I have a habit of trying to trip my mom when she gets up in the middle of the night!

Mishkat said...

Congratulations on the award! And don't worry about not visiting - our mom is really bad at it, so we completely understand :)!

P.S. Dobby says he agrees with Lola about sleeping! It's the best.

We're happy to hear that Barney is doing well. Have the bad behaviors he was showing before the surgery cleared up? We hope so!

Congrats on the awards, and we hope your new computer arrives soon!

Purrs and hugs,
