Wow! We Won an Award :)

Holy cat! Our friends at Furbaby Chat! have given us the pawsome Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you Sharky, ET, Duchess and Lauren for being our friends, and for choosing us for this honor. We've said it before, but it bears repeating ... we love sharing about all of our kitty friends at PAWS, so we're extremely flattered whenever animals and their humans derive enjoyment from the stories and images here on our blog. :)

According to the rules that accompany the award, we're supposed to share seven things about ourselves. But since this is a blog about the cats at PAWS, we hope it's okay if we share about seven of them instead! And in case you're wondering, all these kitties are still looking for their forever homes.

1. Gadget is one of the smartest cats we know. He has a great memory, so we can never use the same trick twice to get him back into his cage.

2. Susie loves living in the volunteer lounge. As you can see, this also means there is one less locker available for us to use. ;)

3. Gizmo is a gentle giant. His roommates and volunteers alike love this big, sweet orange boy.

4. Keesa’s favorite activity is licking volunteers’ hands. Remember to rotate your hand, or you’ll have a red spot from her sandpapery tongue.

5. Beautiful Augusta is the queen of the “silent” meow. She is a great jumper, too ... she can leap up onto things with the greatest of ease.

6. Oliver really likes dogs. In fact, he helps the PAWS staff test woofies to make sure they can safely live in a home with cats.

7. Babe is a total sweetheart. She loves people and cats alike.

The rules also state that we have to pass along the award to 15 blogging friends. How can we choose just 15, when we have so many friends with amazing blogs? Talk about difficult. In any case, here's our list, but know that it could've easily been twice as long! Please check out these blogs when you have a chance. You'll be happy you did.

And finally, we're supposed to notify the award recipients, so off we go!

Have a great weekend, everyone. :)

Congrats on the wonderful award and thanks so much for passing it on to us. We loved hearing about the cats. They all looked like characters but then what cat isn't a character. Hope they all find some great homes.
Have a great week end.

Congratulations on your award! It is definitely well-deserved. We hope that each and every one of the 7 adorable kitties find a forever home. Mommy has a 'thing' for Gizmo. She has always wanted a big cute ginger male...uh oh, we're running out of room here!

Thank you so much for passing it along to us! said...

Thanks for sharing the award with shelter-cats! You would definitely be on my list of favorite blogs but I guess we shouldn't keep passing the award back and forth!

My Human is pretty taken with Gizmo 'cause she lubs hur some big orange boys. Myself, I'm partial to Gadget since #1 He's my twin and #2 I don't go into no stinkin' carriers neither!

I hope everykitty gets a good home, but meanwhile they look pretty happy and well-cared for!
