Catch-up post: The Awards

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Do you remember the day I became official reporter of this blog? It was October 15, 2007, and with a wonderful contract I started my job. There came busy times and in December my carrier went to a higher level when I became Director of CCSI. Also I found the love of my life, Karl.

I thought 2008 would be the happiest year in my life… In my love life I am, with my fiance. But my reporting job is not going so well. I have re-read my contract and there’s not ONE word about surgeries, not one word about how I have to do my job when my typist gets sick or is unable to do her job. NOTHING!

And now I feel bad and proud and bad and honered with a handful of awards, some of them I already got in January… How do I present them without others thinking that I am a bad reporter?? I really have no idea…

At January 11, Sassy gave all who participated in the Sassy & Momo Mystery Adventure, with comments, encouraging and support, the Participation Award.


The next award I got from my handsome and beloved fiance Karl.
There are rules attached to this award:

1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think (no fish or bird blogs, they’ll just make you hungry)
2. Acknowledge this post
3. Optional Proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award with a link to the post that you wrote
4. Go tell your humans to fork over the treats!

There are many blogs that make me think. But on my way to choose blogging cats and dogs for this award, I found no one who not already got this award. If I am wrong, please let me know…


And my sweetheart at The Cat Realm gave me another award… “This Blog is Rated E for Excellence” award.
Again I had trouble to find bloggers who didn’t already got this award, so hereby I give it everybody!
Thank you very much Karl for honoring me with these awards!!


At Januari 31, our beautiful, sweet Ariel gave Karl and I the” Caring Cat Award”. We are very much touched by receiving this award and will proudly show it on our respective blogs, as well as on our joint blog! Thank you, Ariel!!

At our joint blog we gave the award to our special caring friend Caesar!


7 February I got the “Friend of a Woofie” award from my fiance Karl. He gave me this award because I share my home with two dogs: Taylor and Buzzer. Taylor I know my whole life, she is almost 13 years old and a sweet friend of me. Buzzer was abandoned by his first humans when he was 8 years old, when he came to us, two years ago, he was not used to cats, but I taught him. Very well, and we all love him!!

We pass this award on to Chase, she lives together with her two doggy sisters Parker and Spider.


And yesterday Karl and I received another award, a Funky one!
At our joint blog we gave this award to two other funky cats — Skeezix and Adan!!

In my new blog template, which will coming soon (I hope…), we have made plenty of room for our special friends, and I will proudly display the awards you have given me. Thank you!!

So Special…

Thursday, January 3, 2008

“We like to give this award to some cats that are very special themselves:
First my dear boyfriend Ruis. He is the most special cats of all and the best boyfriend a cat can have! He is caring and loving, multi-talented and beautiful, and always humble about it!”

Thank you, Karl, and thank you for this award!!
It is so easily to love you, Karl. You are the most generous, talented, loving and handsome mancat I have ever met! I drown in your eyes everytime you take off your glasses…

And now I may give this “So special award” to another special one…
As most of you know I live together with 9 other wonderful cats and 1 visitor (Gucci from Linda in Dubai). But we have an eleventh kitty… and she gets the So special award…, insert drumroll… Miss Peach!
This sweet, small cat has a big heart and is stronger than you can imagine. When her mommy Karla and LapDaddy came back from a short trip, Miss Peach was very sick. Her Mommy and Daddy did everything they could and the whole cat blogosphere was purring for her, so we were doing all 10. And it helped!! The sweet and great Miss Peach started to eat again and became stronger day-by-day! But she still has a bad mammary tumor on her tummy which cannot be healed. So although this will be one of our last posts for a while, she is always in our thoughts and we’ll keep on purring for our so special 11th kitty, Miss Peach!
