We got a nice surprise! Kali and Shoko from The Canadian Cats nominated us for this award. We like chatting with these two friends and we are happy they nominated us.
Do we get treats?
From the Mom: Steinbeck, you don’t need treats ALL the time. I started this blog back on April 30, 2011. At the time, I had Hemingway and Shakespeare. Both were young kittens that I had adopted from the Humane Society. It was actually a year ago yesterday that I lost Shakespeare to a freakish accident. I was heartbroken. The very next day, or exactly a year ago, I went to the Humane Society because I had seen Steinbeck online and knew he was for me. He has helped me through the loss of Shakespeare and has wiggled his way firmly into my heart. By writing this blog, I keep my writing skills active and I get a chance to meet humans and fur people from all over the world.
My advice is simple. Have fun! Don’t expect to win a Pulitzer Prize. Just share something that means lots to you. Don’t concentrate on the numbers. Concentrate on the quality.
I’m also supposed to nominate 15 other bloggers. I tend to be lazy when it comes to this so I’ll put out a few for you.
The Cat on my Head: The delightful tales of a house full of kitties, known as Kitties Blue, who will melt your heart! They also host the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.
Hands on Bowie: Mr. Bowie is absolutely the best. He always has great words of wisdom.
Dash Kitten: This is one of our new friends and there’s lots of information on the blog.
Catitude: Mom has actually met Quinnie Makayla and her human. Quinn has her paws full right now ‘cuz her Mom hasn’t been feeling very good. Please say some prayers for both of them.
Glogirly: Tails of Two Funny Cats and Their Girl. Katie and Waffles will make you MOL!!! Mom is friends with them and their humans. They used to live really close but now they’ve moved. You’ll love reading about them. They are awesome!
One Spoiled Cat: Teddy came to his home shortly after Angel Sammy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Teddy has become a good friend! You’ll love reading about him.
I could go on and on but if I ignore my boys, they will get into trouble. I’m supposed to be playing with them when I get home from work and not working on the computer. Everyone deserves an award so feel free to reward yourselves.
Here’s what I had to do:
Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
Write a post to show your award
Give a brief story of how your blog started
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.
Now I will confess to being a little lazy so I hope those I nominated will read the boys’ blog to find out they did get nominated.
