Hi everybuddy.  The lady with the yellow hair says when I sit like this, I’m sitting pretty.  She’s right, y’know.  I’m sitting…and I’m pretty.  I’m sitting pretty.  Teehee.



I’m excited ’cause I get to tell you about another award we got.  It’s a new one from Patchy Meow over at Catnip Corner.  Thanks for this award, Patchy Meow!  The rules for this award are easy peasy:  1)  you post it on your blog,  2) you post a link to who gave you the award, and then 3)  you pass it on to one other blog.  We’re passing this one on to our furiend Sammy over at One Spoiled Cat as a thank you for the fun moon trip he took all of us on!  That trip was outta this world, Sammy!

I think these are words we should all live by…Keep Calm and Blog!  Happy weekend, everybuddy!

Hey everybuddy.  I’m taking it easy today after all that celebrating we did for Ernie’s Gotcha Day.  He’s sleeping it off somewhere…that boy sure knows how to party!  By the way, he wanted me to thank all of you for the nice Gotcha Day wishes.


Since I’m taking it easy…this is a good opportunity to acknowledge this cool award we got from Noodle.  Hey, thanks for thinking of us, Noodle!  If you haven’t met Noodle yet, go on over and say hello.  She’s quite the political animal.

I like this award ’cause all the flowers remind me that spring’s not that far off. Though it’s hard to believe spring’s close when we’re still getting snow.  Yep, that’s right!  More snow…and lots of it.  This better be the last of it and it better not plan on sticking around long.

We wanna pass this award onto any of you who that still have snow…and hope these flowers help brighten your day!

what was wally doing


For this edition of “What WAS That Wally Doing?”

we go back to May 2009.

Funny thing…

that sign is still there and I still don’t get fed any faster!





Hey you…mom-lady!

See that sign above the door there??



You better feed me.




I also wanna take this time to acknowledge

a couple of awards we’ve received recently.


We got The Best Blog Around the World Award from our good furiends at The Cat on My Head…and we got the The Lighthouse Award from our friend, Beverly at Moggiepurrs.  Of course, we forgot what the rules are for these awards…but we did wanna say thank you for passing them on to us.  We appreciate you thinking of us!

Hey everybuddy!  Wally here!  Ears to you!   ;)

And ears to our buddy, Texas, over at Texas, a Cat in…Austin, for giving us some awards the other day.  Now we haven’t been the best at posting the awards that we’ve received.  We blame the mom…she’s really bad at keeping track of those things.  We told her if she doesn’t want her pay docked, she’s got to do better.  We’ll see how she does.


cracking crispmouse award

Texas gave us this cool award called The Cracking Crispmouse Bloggywog Award. Thanks, Texas!  The rules for this award are pretty simple:  To be eligible for the award, a bloggywog must spread one or more of joy, peace, hope and love.  Anyone receiving the award may, if they wish, pass it on to any other anipal bloggywogger whose bloggywog satisfies rule number one.  There’s no minimum or maximum limit on the number of furiends you can pass the award on to…you can be as Scroogy or as generous as you like.

Well, we’re feeling really generous, so we’re passing this award on to all of you! Enjoy it!

Hey Ernie!  Do you wanna tell everybuddy about the other award Texas gave us?

© Blog of the Year Award

Sure Wally!  We also got the Blog of the Year Award from Texas.  Now we know others have also given us this award.  But, of course…due to the mom’s ineptness…we don’t remember who.  So, thanks, Texas, and anybuddy else who passed this great award on to us!

Hey everybuddy!  I got another award!  Oh yeah…I got the award and not those stoopid boycats that live here.  It’s from Willow over at the Cherry City Kitties.  Did you know that Willow and her brothers and sisters are Mitten Kittens like us Island Cats?  That’s right. We all live in Michigan which is also called the Mitten State. Willow lives farther up the mitten than us, though.

Oh…back to my fabulous award…


Isn’t it beautiful?  Thanks, Willow!

For this award, I’m supposed to tell 7 things about me.  Most of them you probably already know, but here goes…

1.  One of my favorite napping spots is under the comforter on the bed.  The lady with the yellow hair says I’m gonna suffocate under there!


2.  I have no interest in going outside.  Must be because I spent my early days out there and I’ve had enough!

3.  I like to chew string which gets me in trouble.  Did you know that I ate the string on our Neko fly?  So now the lady with the yellow hair has to make sure to keep any string away from me.

4.  I love getting brushed and combed.  When the brush comes out…I come a’running!

5.  But I hate getting my nails clipped!

6.  I hate hate hate going to the v-e-t.  I turn into a wildcat when I’m there.

7.  I like laying on the guy’s jeans…’specially if he’s wearing them.


I’m passing this award on to a few of my girlcat furiends…Katie Isabella, Madi, and Mitalee, Esme and Malou over at the Critters in the Cottage.

Happy Weekend, everybuddy!

Jeez, Wally…enough with the washing!

I’m trying to sleep here!


But Ernie…I gotta look good!

We got a new award…in fact, we got it three times…



We’re The Next Big Thing!



Wally, with the way you’ve been eating lately…

chowing all your food down and then stealing mine…

the only Next Big Thing around this house is



We wanna thank Basil the Bionic Cat

all the kitties at Twinkletoe Tails and Loupi

for giving us this fun award!

If you haven’t gotten it yet…take it!

You’re The Next Big Thing!

(and I don’t mean like Wally!  ;)  )

Hey kitties!  Wally here.  The other day our good furiend, King Spitty, bestowed this cool award on us Island Cats…The Blog of the Year Award!  Thanks, Spitty!  We lubs you, too!

Now we admit, we haven’t been too good lately about posting awards and passing them on.  It’s not OUR fault, though…it’s the lousy assistant we have (yeah…that’s you, mom!).  By the time she thinks about helping us post about them, she’s forgotten what awards we got and who gave them to us.  Well, it’s not OUR job to remember that stuff.  She gets a big FAIL for that, doesn’t she, Ernie?


Yeah, Wally, sometimes she’s useless.  I can’t believe we actually got her to post about this one.  It’s probably because the rules are pretty simple and she can’t screw them up:  You can get this award up to 6 times so you fill up all the star spaces.  Since we got it once so far, only one star is lit up.    You must pass it back to whoever passed it to you…so we send it to back to Spitty and he gets another star!  Then you can pass it on to as many others as you want.  So we’re passing it on to these furiends:

You’re under no obligation to play along…but this award is easy to share…so have fun with it!
