Mancat Monday and an Award

The things a Mancat must endure:
Here I was enjoying the view out of the computer/catroom window, when Mom had to document my every move with the camera.

She wanted me to look directly at the camera, but I showed her who was boss. Besides, she had that awful camera flash and my eyes would have looked like headlights had I cooperated.
Next she caught me sleeping on the living room sofa. Can't a mancat get any rest around here?



I'll show her!

Way too long ago, our friend Karl of the Cat Realm presented us with the Premio Dardos Award! "With the Premium Dardos, recognize the values that each blogger shows each day in commitment to transmit cultural values, ethical, literary, personal etc. that, in short, demonstrate their creativity by alive thinking that remains intact from their letters and words."

We are very much honored that he bestowed this award on us. We think that it was our environmental post that made him think of us. Thank you, Karl!



In the spirit of the award, we must pass it along to five other deserving bloggers. Because we don't blog as regularly now, we don't have a good sense of those who already received this. Excuse us if some are multiple awardees. We choose these wonderful blogs:

Skeezix the Cat (He probably received this five times over, but we think he is just great!)
Rosie and Cheeto (Unfortunately, they don't blog very often any more either.)
The Cats P (What a gorgeous family!)
DaisyMae Maus and the Feline Americans (Jake's girlfriend and her four brothers)
The Ginger Darlings (Breathtaking photos with a home setting of the coast of Wales coupled with delightfully descriptive passages)

In her face!!!!! Hee Hee that was a smooth move, Jake!!

Congrats on your award. We love the Ginger Darlings too. The PM is in love with their mom and the wee ones have her books all over the place. We started reading their blog and had emailed their mom about a print and she said we would be great at blogging too so here we are a year later.

Jake, I think you have found the perfect solution to excess-flashy-box use!

I am glad you found the Ginger Darlings, too. I am enchanted by them.

Oh my - you guys are as bad with blogging as we are at the moment! We came here to apologize for not coming anymore and then see that you post about an award that Karl already had forgotten that he gave it to you. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Happy Halloween to you!!!
Thank you for visiting us - and as we mentioned before - we are a bit neglectful with the visiting lately but have put word out already that we need better help!!!
Mrs. OZ, Tintin and Karl
