Friday Medley

To end the week, we have an assortment of this-and-that for your reading pleasure...


On Monday, our friend Jasmim gave us an award:

This translates to "This Blog Makes Me Happy". Thank you, Jasmim!

The rules for this award are:

1 - Post the blog that gave you the award
2 - Post 5 things that make you happy
3 - Pass the award to 5 other blogs

So, 5 things that make us happy. We've done something similar with each of us picking one thing since there are 5 of us, but this time we'll just do 5 things that make us all happy.

1. Going outside! (Carefully snoopervised, of course...)
2. If we can't go outside, then sitting in the window seats with the windows open makes us happy as a close second. We don't get chased back inside that way 'cause we're already inside!
3. Napping wherever we want, but especially on The Mommy's lap or close to her.
4. Playing with our catnip toys.
5. Running to greet The Mommy when she gets home from that work thing.

It's always hard to choose who to pass awards on to, but we prefer to do that rather than just give it to everyone. So even though we love everybuddy, we'd like to give this award to:

1. Cats in Trees
2. Pet Meadow
3. Eric and Flynn
4. JB's Small World
5. Cory Cat Blog


The Mommy wanted to share with you another seller she found on Etsy. She got some really pretty cards from Patti Waltz Artwork; she was really taken with the kitty silhouette, moon and stars, and pretty blue coloring of this card.

The Mommy had some really nice conversations with Patti, and may have talked her into eventually starting a kitty blog for her kitties! The world needs more kitty bloggers.


The Mommy's looking forward to getting Bugsy from the cancer v-e-t this afternoon and bringing him home for the weekend after he's been boarding there all week for his first week of radiation treatments. After all, tomorrow is Meow Like A Pirate Day, and Bugsy with his one eye is a natural for it! Arrr...

(Of course, Bugsy then goes back to the cancer v-e-t on Monday for another week of treatments -- still 2.5 weeks, or 13 treatments, to go -- but at least he'll be home for a couple of days!)


And to round out the post and get your weekend started, how about another pretty photo...this is from The Mommy's Tuesday evening drive home:


Happy Friday, y'all!

It's good that Bugsy gets to come home for weekends. I hope he doesn't feel too bad, but at least tomorrow he can say "Argh!" and "Shiver me timbers" about how he's feeling.

Cute award! Congratulations...well deserved. Very cool cards from Esty. What a great find! ~Lisa Co9T

What a busy week. We love ETSY too, and buy lots of things from there.

Hope Bugsy enjoys his weekend at home, and he isn't having too tough a time with the radiation treatment.

And wow, you look like great pirates too. I am so mad at my mom right now for not taking time to help me blog. I miss so much!
