An award, and an update :)

We got an award!  A few weeks ago, we received the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from our new friends at My dog Sheba's life story!  How cool is that?  Hearty thanks to Sheba and her family (which includes a cat named Cody)!  They just started blogging in May, so please go and meet them if you haven't yet done so. :)

The rules for the award state that we're supposed to share seven things about ourselves.  As we've done a few times with past awards, we're going to use this as a chance to share pictures of seven of the awesome and adoptable cats now at PAWS.  So here are sweet brothers Derek and Andy; Doodle; Tessa; Oracle; Milo; and WoogieBe sure to biggify the collage to get a more detailed look at how beautiful these kittehs are. :)

Top: Andy, Doodle, Derek / Middle: Tessa / Bottom: Oracle, Milo, Woogie
We're also supposed to choose seven blogs with whom to share the award.  Honestly, we're inspired by so many of the blogs we read that we're going to pass this award along to all of you!

Finally, we wanted to thank all of you who have asked how our dear Auntie K. is doing.  She still has a long way to go, and is still in the hospital, but is showing improvement.  Please keep purring and praying!

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)

We are a finalist in the "Best Cause Related Blog" category of the 2012 Petties! PLEASE VOTE DAILY for us (and your other favorite cat blogs) now through July 31 (and invite anyone and everyone you know to do the same), especially since PAWS will benefit.  You can vote here (or click the Petties link in our sidebar).  Thank you! :)

  20. Congratulations on your award, it is so deserved!!! We love that the seven things you put up were seven kitties, they are beautiful and we hope they get nice homes soon :-)

    I can't believe how much that kitty on the bottom right looks like sweet Maggie!!!

  21. Big concatulations on your terrific award! It sure is appropriate too. You guys sure inspire us, and make our hearts sing. Our Mumsy just melted over those seven. We wish we could bundle them all up...but that would double our number and CatDaddy gets this funny twitch in his face when Mumsy talks like that. She teaches us we gotta always take care of family, so we best not make him twitch too much :-) hee-hee, but sometimes it dis so funny :-)

    We so glad Auntie K is doing better. We will keep purring and praying for her. She needs to come home from that hospital and get more happies! We be voting for you guys each day too. Thank you, our great friends :-)

  22. Concats on your award. We hope those lovely kitties soon get adopted.
    We have been voting for you every day and are off to do it again now.

  23. Those are seven super sweet faces!! I can't imagine how anyone could come to your shelter and be able to resist just scooping them up and taking them home!

  24. I like how Milo looks grumpy in his photo!
