A new fave, and a new award :)


A little more than two weeks ago, we were selected as the winners of KC & the Sherwood Bunch's PetFusion Cat Scratcher Lounge contest. Thank you Mom ML, KC, and the rest of the Sherwood Kitties from all of us. Especially Moosey, who has made it clear that it is his new favorite piece of furniture AND his scratcher of choice. He took to it immediately, and as you can see from this picture, can often be found on top of it. :)


Then, a week ago, we were incredibly honored when our friend Sparkle the Designer Cat gave us the Liebster Blog Award (Liebster is German for "favorite" or "beloved").  This is an award for "up and coming blogs with less than 200 followers." Apparently, the bloggers who gave the Liebster to Sparkle bent the "less than 200" part of that rule for her, and Sparkle made an exception for us, too. We're actually glad, since it gives us the chance to pass it along to five of OUR favorite up-and-coming blogs.  So here's our list (in no particular order) ... we had such a difficult time choosing just five.  If you haven't already done so, please visit them ... you'll be glad you did!


Have a great day, everyone! :)

Congratulations on the award. You certainly are up and coming and deserve the award. What a great new scratcher and seat. That looks like a sturdy one. I think I'll have HH look into that. The boys both got on their X at once and it collapsed... MOL...
