4th of july 1

Thanks, Kali and Shoko! Stereo purrs to you.

We got a nice surprise!  Kali and Shoko from The Canadian Cats nominated us for this award.  We like chatting with these two friends and we are happy they nominated us.

Do we get treats?

From the Mom:  Steinbeck, you don’t need treats ALL the time.  I started this blog back on April 30, 2011.  At the time, I had Hemingway and Shakespeare.  Both were young kittens that I had adopted from the Humane Society.  It was actually a year ago yesterday that I lost Shakespeare to a freakish accident.  I was heartbroken.  The very next day, or exactly a year ago,  I went to the Humane Society because I had seen Steinbeck online and knew he was for me.  He has helped me through the loss of Shakespeare and has wiggled his way firmly into my heart.  By writing this blog, I keep my writing skills active and I get a chance to meet humans and fur people from all over the world.

My advice is simple.  Have fun!  Don’t expect to win a Pulitzer Prize.  Just share something that means lots to you.  Don’t concentrate on the numbers.  Concentrate on the quality.

I’m also supposed to nominate 15 other bloggers.  I tend to be lazy when it comes to this so I’ll put out a few for you.

The Cat on my Head:  The delightful tales of a house full of kitties, known as Kitties Blue,  who will melt your heart!  They also host the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.

Hands on Bowie:  Mr. Bowie is absolutely the best.  He always has great words of wisdom.

Dash Kitten:  This is one of our new friends and there’s lots of information on the blog.

Catitude:  Mom has actually met Quinnie Makayla and her human.  Quinn has her paws full right now ‘cuz her Mom hasn’t been feeling very good.  Please say some prayers for both of them.

Glogirly:  Tails of Two Funny Cats and Their Girl.  Katie and Waffles will make you MOL!!!  Mom is friends with them and their humans.  They used to live really close but now they’ve moved.  You’ll love reading about them.  They are awesome!

One Spoiled Cat:  Teddy came to his home shortly after Angel Sammy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.  Teddy has become a good friend!  You’ll love reading about him.

I could go on and on but if I ignore my boys, they will get into trouble.  I’m supposed to be playing with them when I get home from work and not working on the computer.  Everyone deserves an award so feel free to reward yourselves.

Here’s what I had to do:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog

  • Write a post to show your award

  • Give a brief story of how your blog started

  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers

  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to

  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Now I will confess to being a little lazy so I hope those I nominated will read the boys’ blog to find out they did get nominated.

Mom says everyone should be nominated, but she’s running out of time.  The awards are fun ‘cuz they introduce us to other bloggers.   However, if they are as busy as Mom is, they may not have the time to nominate others.  Please know how much we appreciate the award and how much we love so many bloggers out there.  We have become an extended family ready to help each other through the rough times and then to laugh like crazy through the funny times.

So……………Mom says we are nominating all of our readers!!!  Thanks for being with us.  Mom, can I go eat now???

Mom said she gave us the names of famous human authors and figured we could use our free time to write our own blog.

Now we’ve met all sorts of fur people from lots of places and we enjoy sharing tails….oops I guess we mean tales.

We love rewards.

Shakespeare, we’re talking about blogawards.

We’re not talking about treats?

No, some of our really neat readers give us awards for being good kitties and sharing our thoughts with humans and fur people around the world.  For instance, we just received the “Very Inspiring Blogger” award.

We were nominated for this award by The Iceland Experience  and by Kofegeek so we want to send out a big THANK YOU to both of them for doing that.  Since we got two, we each get one and we don’t have to fight.  Mom says that’s a good thing!

You mean humans and fur people are actually reading about us?

Yes, and they are from all over the world.  We only go out in our back yard, but we know that the world is a very big place ‘cuz Mom has told us.

That’s so neat that we got nominated.  What happens next?

We’re supposed to nominate some other bloggers for the award.  So let’s get started:

Texas, A Cat in New York :  This is a neat fur person who was born in Paris and then moved to the USA with his owner.

DLC S Management :  This is a human who writes about all sorts of neat things.  Mom likes to read about Amsterdam and Shakespeare likes to read about food so they both find lots of interesting things on this blog.

Funkykarmamagic’s Blog : PlumaBlanca and Shakespeare think they are going to the Olympics.  Pluma’s human lives in New Mexico and runs the Funky Karma Incense and Tea Shop.

Brownponytail : She has a kitty who is always hungry, just like Shakespeare.  She also talks about all sorts of interesting things from food to fashion to travels.

Jimmiechew : Jimmie is a cat that looks like me (Hemingway) and is studying to be a model.  I think I’ll ask Mom if I can do that too.

Terriskitchenuk : She talks about food and we love food and so does Mom! She lives in England and has some interesting information that she shares.

Rantings of an Amateur Chef : Another blog about food.  Nothing wrong with that at all!  We love it!

Betweenfearandlove : Mom says this blogger is great because she understands how hard it can be to be a writer and she shares her struggles and triumphs.

2FlyAmerica :  This is a wonderful blog by a couple who built, flew and maintained an airplane.  Mom worked in the airline industry for many years (before she adopted us) and she loves airplanes.

Arignagardener : This is about a couple who live in Ireland and post beautiful garden pictures.  Mom said that’s too far for us to go visit but we like looking at the pictures, too.

What else do we have to do for this award?

Here’s the list:

1.Display the award logo somewhere on the blog.

2. Link back to the blog of the person who nominated you.

3. State seven things about yourself.

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award and provide links to their blogs.

5. Notify those bloggers that they have been nominated and of the award’s requirements.

We just started blogging so we don’t know 15 bloggers.  I hope it doesn’t matter.  We’re still kind of young kitties and we like to play when the weather is nice so we don’t go exploring blogs on the computer as much.

I think it will be fine what we are doing but we do have to state seven things about ourselves.

  1. We were both adopted from the Animal Humane Society.
  2. We both love to play outside and don’t like it when winter comes.
  3. We both love to open packages.
  4. We both love to “work” on the computer….especially if Mom is there.
  5. We both love getting treats.
  6. We both love having our picture taken.
  7. Our Mom says we’re both adorable!

Now can we go eat?

Just as soon as we let those bloggers know that we nominated them for an award.

Well get busy and let them know.  I’m hungry!
