Awards & Acc-O-Lades

Hi everyone, Katie here.

We're very honored to have received some super cool awards recently.  We were given THREE from some of our bestest friends and we're really excited to pass them onto even more friends. You've probably seen them a lot being shared around the blogosphere, but that doesn't make them any less special to those receiving them and those giving them.

We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends
First, we want to thank our friends who gave us these awesome awards.

We received the One Lovely Blog Award from Kizzie Cat.  We love Kizzie and her human Julie. They have a beautiful blog with gorgeous photos and something they call "What's the Word" which inspires many of their posts.

Sheba from My Dog Sheba's Life Story (yes, you read that right...DOG) awarded us with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Sheba is a Dogue de Bordeaux and Rottweiler cross, which sounds very regal and strong. He's a talented blogging Brit and lives across the pond with his cat, Cody. Do you think he woofs with an accent?

Layla from Cat Wisdom 101 gave us the super cool Illuminating Blogger Award. We think Cat Wisdom is pretty illuminating and we are very flattered to receive their recognition. Cat Wisdom 101 is a wonderful place for humans to learn everything from the serious to the silly about us cats. Even though I'm way past 101 and well on my way to Advanced Cat Wisdom,  I still like to visit so that I can quiz Glogirly on what she's learned. And correct her on what she's screwed up.

Some awards ask for seven secrets, some for 10 favorites, some a single illuminating fact. We're going to mush it all together and give you -
Katie's Top 7 Not-So-Secret Secrets

And The Awards Go To:

One Lovely Blog Award

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Illuminating Blogger Award

The only requirement of winning is a smile.
Some winners may choose to share 7 not-so-secret secrets and pass the award onto more friends.
Some winners may also choose to do a happy dance.
All of the above are considered optional.

And Did You Hear?
Just this week we were named one of the Top 25 Cat Blogs by Bel-Rae V-E-T Tech!  I'm a little concerned that a V-E-T tech school even knows who I AM. In fact I've been napping with one eye open ever since I heard the news. Thank COD they are in Colorado and a long, long way from the townhouse. Glogirly says I should be humble and gracious and recognize all of the other really cool blogs that we are on the list with.  I don't remember seeing humble and gracious in my Cat Handbook. Can anyone help me out here?

You can check out all of the great blogs on Bel-Rae's Blog.  I think you'll recognize a few. Congratulations to ALL of the blogs!

Please follow me. I promise it will be fun.
