[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]

Dear Furriends,

Today, we have a special announcement regarding the VBP Blog Hop.

On January 17 of this year, Jet, Savannah, and I started a blog hop called VBP – Vocab Building Project (Check above link for more information).

We had lots of fun using new words, and I loved looking for French/English idioms (VBP) that were similar or not and which included the word cat. Unfortunately, life being life, we cannot get the energy needed to continue it right now. So we have decided to stop it, at least momentarily.

I would like to thank all the furriends who collaborated in this project:

Jet and his human, for coming up with the original idea for the blog hop! We’re sending you lots of purrs and hugs!

Savannah and her human, for their perseverance (VBP) and patience, and for posting when we couldn’t. We send you hugs and purrs too!

Miss Ann from Zoolatry for creating all the graphics that you see on this post, as well as the badges. Again, hugs and purrs!

Last but not least, thank you to all the furriends who pawticipated! We hope you had fun in the process. We certainly loved reading your posts! Lots of purrs!

A special shout-out to The Tabbies O Trout Towne for participating to all but 2 of the total of 11 hops! Thank you! Lots of purrs! And salmon!

So, for now, we are closing the VBP dictionary and stopping the hop. But one day maybe…

P.S.: If you had planned a VBP post and plan to post it, please post the link in the comment and I will post a link in a post next week. Thank you furry much for your understanding!

I want to thank all our furry and human furriends for their support.

Your comments, tweets, posts, thoughts, purrs, purrayers, every kind gesture, were appreciated beyond words. THANK YOU.

The humans want to take some time to pick up more pictures of Grouik for his special page. In the meantime, here is one of Grouik’s human favorite pic (and activity) of our beloved Grouik.

We also would like to thank Savannah and her Mom for their kindness and for taking the initiative to ask Zoolatry to create 2 special badges for Grouik. Thank you to Zoolatry for such a nice job! Please visit their site if you haven’t already!

Thank you to those who blogged about Grouik: Wheezyrider, Savannah, Alasandra.

We are really moved by the kindness of the furry community that reached out to us these past few days. We are not surprised, but we certainly are moved.

Many purrs to all!

It’s Sunday and before I go on with my blogging I want to thank my furriends (furry friends and humans!) who awarded me a couple of, well, awards =^.^=

First, Miss Lisa, at ft. // La vie éclectique. Sorry to respond only now, but with my human running around and everything…

I am very moved by your nomination and I thank you so very much with many purrs! Indeed Miss Lisa nominated me for the Blog on Fire Award!

I have to admit though that my human had to explain that my blog wasn’t actually on fire and why it was a pretty cool award! Thanks again Miss Lisa! You rock!
(I think humans have some strange uses of words…)

So I have to share 8 unusual things about me… Everything about me is special, because I am special. But let’s go:

1. I said earlier that “I don’t want humans to call me red (to quote my human, I am white and cream colored).” Sometimes my human also says I am Caramel Macchiato.
2. Because my human likes to wear black pants to work, I like to put some of my white hair on them
3. I love chicken out my human’s plate
4. I miss having some yogurt from time to time, like the ones I had in France
5. I like to climb on trees
6. I like the false mouse my human brought me back from Boston
7. Once I licked olives on the humans’ table and they never suspected it!
8. I have a collar with the American flag (I already had it in France!)

I also have to nominate 8 bloggers, so in no particular order:
=^.^= Sammy at One Spoiled Cat
=^.^= Savannah at Savannah’s Paw Tracks
=^.^= Miss Satchie at Satchmo the Cat
=^.^= Pedro at Maru can kiss my furry…
=^.^= Jet at Hey… It’s Jet Here
=^.^= Archie, Oscar and Henry at My Three Moggies
=^.^= Miss Nellie and her furry family at The Cat from Hell
=^.^= The Summer Solstice Girl at Summer Solstice Musings

And I’m going to ask my human to notify them as soon as this post is posted!

~~~

My furry friend Jet at Hey… It’s Jet Here also nominated me for the Very Inspired Blogger Award. Thank you so very much my furriend! I really appreciate it. In fact, I am loudly purring =^.^=

Since I had already received it, I will not go through all the process but I’m sending purrs to my furriend Jet!

And for those who read all this, here is an old picture of me from when I was in France! I liked to pretend that I was a pirate!

Have a purring Sunday everyone!

My good furriend Savannah has so kindly bestowed two awards on me and my little blog: One Lovely Blog Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Thank you so very much, Savvy!

I don’t know what to say… My human keeps on telling me I am lovely, but it’s so nice when it comes from furriends and fellow bloggers. I love my little place on the Internet and I like to share it with my furriends. I am glad if you find it lovely and inspiring. Wow. I’m purring loudly right now…

So here are the rules for the awards

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post
Thank you so much, Savannah!

2. Share 7 things about yourself
Hmmm…
– I don’t want humans to call me red (to quote my human, I am white and cream colored)
– I miss the time when I could sleep on the bed
– When I am not happy with the humans I hide in a closet
– I like to sleep in a big bag full of other plastic bags
– I am scared by the vacuum cleaner
– I like books (the smell and sleeping on or next to them)
– I hate those citrus stuff the humans eat

3. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire
I am too relatively new to the blogosphere and I don’t know so many people yet, so here are my 15 bloggers I admire. If you already received the award, well, consider receiving it a second time from Texas, who admires you ;-) I know some of you among the list are big stars on the Internet, and those awards probably don’t mean that much anymore but I still admire you, so there you go!
In no particular order…

Satchmo the cat
Sparkle
Sammy
Sparta
Simon’s Cat
Lemonysqueezes
Just Cats
Hands on Bowie
Maru
Kitty Bloger
Animalcouriers

Am doing this right after my nap, promise!

Thank you guys!

No seriously. I know we had a couple of fights but I miss you bro. Hope you’re ok…
