Posts Tagged ‘bloggers’

I don’t know if you have noticed, but lately, my human has seized any occasion to post a link to her bloggie on MY BLOG. What can I say? I have way more followers than she has. Ah!

Nevertheless, she came up with an idea she came up with some links from bloggies she was following and I came up with an idea!

Some of the blogs she is following – cooking or other blogs but not cat blogs per se – sometimes post stories about the kitties in the bloggers’ lives. Sometimes I post the links of some posts on my Facebook profile because I think you might enjoy checking them.

So I came up with an idea: Why not post the links in a post here? This could be a monthly post. We think anything kitty-related is interesting, don’t you think?

Please, check the links below and at the bottom of this post, I added a quick survey for you to tell me if you like the idea and would like me to try a monthly edition. Be honest! These are links I have selected because I think you might enjoy checking them, but you are the best able to tell me ;-)

Thank you in advance and enjoy!

This first link is just so you can see cute Norma Jean!

Here are pictures of Flyball, eating baby spinach leaves! I think I’ll stick with chicken though =^.^=

Want to visit the Agora in Athens? What about a kitty as a guide?

The kitties at Love & Olive Oil have trained their humans well!

And finally for the March edition, how to make a cardboard cat condo! That’s a nice project for your humans, I think.

Hope you liked the links! Don’t forget to vote. I already have 5 links for April – and we can never get enough kitties, can we? – but I want to know if you are interested! Thank you!

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

We have not told you yet (I think) but this little project, initiated by Jet and her Mom, was started several months ago. The humans’ lives being what they are, they sometimes got in the way and hampered (VBP) its realization. But everything comes in time, and in the meantime, we have discovered that several other bloggers have a keen (VBP) interest in words.

So today, I thought I would present to all of you a potpourri (VBP) of those we have discovered.

Austin @(CAT)achresis with Dr. Austin Tuxedo’s Word of the Day at the end of each post. Dr. Austin sure knows how to play with words!

Liousha & Tiki @Liousha & Tiki and Graffiti, Zingara & Romeo @La Voix aux Chats-Pitres with Charabia (check here and here) give us French kitty vocabulary lessons!

Saffy, Cosmo, and Phoebe, and their human Angie @Catladyland with Fanglish, or the “the underground feline code of lingo known as Fanglish.”

Nerissa @Nerissa’s Life with My Personal A to Z Challenge (here is the latest post in the series)

I am perplexed (VBP). I think my human is forgetting some bloggers…

If you happen to be regularly playing with words and expressions on your bloggie and you are not on the list, we might either have missed you or the human has forgotten to include you. Leave me a message and I will do a sequel (VBP) next week!

Happy VBP everyone!

My human has been postponing this post for too long now: the thank yous to furriends for awards and other nice attentions.

~~~

I am very very VERY late in thanking our furriends Mollie and Alfie for creating a great Halloween costume for me. I know Halloween is over but I still want to thank my furriends and show you what they did:

They are currently dressing furriends for Christmas everyday, so go check their site!

~~~

Now for the awards… I am even more late in accepting them so I hope you won’t be too mad at me. I will bend the rules just a little. I will answer the questions for each award (or let Kitshka or Milou answer) but I will nominate 15 fellow bloggers for all the awards and they can pick and choose some or all of them.

1. For the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, I have to thank Princess Zena as well as Mollie & Alfie, and Sammy, and Angel’s Whisper, and Cats & Co. Thank you!

For this award, I must finish the sentence ”A Great reader is…”

A great reader is a reader who cares about reading what he or she is actually reading and focuses on the reading
~~~

2. For the Shine On Award, I have to thank Minnie Mouse at Hot Rod Cowgirl. Thank you!

For this award, I have to share 7 things about myself and answer some questions. I’ll let Kitshka answer for herself.

#1 Any food that I can get my paw on will be eaten, even if it’s Texas’ or Milou’s food
#2 I growl when Milou is trying to taste my food
#3 The female human has plenty of nicknames for me, the most frequent being “Petite Belle”
#4 I like to be petted by the female human when I eat
#5 I like to explore the world on the male human’s shoulder
#6 I like to read bloggies with Texas. Although I am often distracted, never am I when I read Quill’s bloggie!
#7 I enjoy watching TV

The questions to answer (still by Kitshka):

– What is my favorite color?
Just about any
– What is my favorite Non-Alcoholic drink?
Tuna juice!
– What is my favorite animal?
Humans?
– Do I prefer Facebook or Twitter?
What’s that?
– What is my favorite number?
3 (the number of Greenies I usually get by combining mine and Milou’s)
– What is my favorite flower?
What’s that?
– What is my passion?
Running around like crazy!

~~~

3. For the Beautiful Blogger Award, I have to thank bodhisattvaintraining. Thank you!

I already have this award so I won’t go through the acceptance again. But thank you so much for thinking of me!

~~~

4. For the Seven Things About Me Award, I have to thank Princess Zena, and Savannah, and Binky. Thank you!

Milou? 7 things about you? No need to hiss at me! Pfft

#1 I snore when I sleep
#2 I am starting to play a little bit with Kitshka
#3 I like my human very much, I like to snuggle on his lap
#4 I like to eat a lot
#5 I made myself a new bed with my human’s wife’s backpack
#6 I steal food from Kitshka’s bowl when the humans aren’t around (which is not often enough!)
#7 I still miss Grouik

~~~

5. For the Super Sweet Blogging Award, I also have to thank Binky Thank you!

I already have this award so I won’t go through the acceptance again. But thank you so much for thinking of me!

~~~

I have two other special awards that I will share separately, on Thursday (the Blog of the Year Award – Thank you Zena! – and a special award by my furriend Bowie, that I want to acknowledge).
I hope I didn’t forget anyone. If I did, meow in the comments and I will have my human give me a treat for her mistake!

~~~

In the meantime, here are our nominees. It is difficult to choose just 15, so I will try to nominate new furriends or furriends I have not nominated before (Yes Kitshka, we will nominate Quill! Stop pulling my tail now!!!).
You can pick all of the awards above, or just the one you don’t have or the ones you want. Or none if you’re not into awards, I understand =^.^=

1. Quill at Housecat Confidential
2. Dayak at Les aventures de Dayak
3. Da Tabbies at Trout Towne
4. Star and Leo at Celestial Kitties
5. Bailey at Bailey Boat Cat
6. Mollie and Alfie at Mollie and Alfie
7. Archie, Oscar and Henry at My Three Moggies
8. Esme and all her family at Critters in the Cottage
9. Katie Isabella at Katie Isabella
10. Spitty at Spitty Speaks
11. Nellie at Cat from Hell
12. Captain and Billy at Wheezyrider
13. Selina at One Eye on the Future
14. Janis at Catonauts
15. Dash Kitten at Dash Kitten

Now my dear furriends, if you will excuse me, I need a nap.

Hiya my furriends!

I finally get to dictate my post to my human to thank you all for the awards you nominated me for.
(Yes, I only get the laptop back now, because after the seminar thingie, my human’s new excuse is webinar thingies…).

Let me thank my very good furriend Sammy for nominating me for the Thinking of You blog award. What a wonderful award, especially for a blogger! Thank you so much, Sammy.

This is a brand new award and I will go back to the acceptance rules in a minute =^.^=

Thank you to Angelswhisper and Zac for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I already have this award but I am very grateful to receive it from you too, and I’m sending lots of purrs your way!

Zac also mentioned a Grazie/My Beautiful Lipstick Award that gained me a big kiss/lick! Thanks Zac! I would like to dedicate this award to one reader especially and that’s anonymoushedonist (because of the beautiful lipstick, you know ;-)

Another award I didn’t have is the Beautiful Blogger Award. I was nominated by my furriend Easy and my new human furriends at the Bonny Blog. Thank you so very much to Easy and the Bonny Blog! It’s nice to be called a “beautiful blogger” ;-)

Those are in no particular order. I wish I could give those to more of my readers but I think making a selection now and then enables us to visit new bloggies of furriends we may not know. I know I like to check the lists of furry bloggers for bloggies I don’t know yet ;-)
If you already have one of these awards, consider it as a token of my great appreciation for your bloggie.

Now I have to let know everyone… I think I will do that partly tonight and partly tomorrow. But maybe tomorrow.

Purrs and nite-nite to everyone!

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
Catpurrology
