For this edition of “What WAS That Wally Doing?”
we go back to May 2009.
that sign is still there and I still don’t get fed any faster!
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.
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?
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!

Hey, everybuddy! I’m so excited! The other day, one of my bestest girlfuriend’s, Katie Isabella, gave ME an award! Just ME…and not those silly boycats that live here! Thank you, Katie!!
For this award, I’m supposed to tell 7 things about me. Well, I think most of you already know lots about me, but I’ll try to come up with some different stuff.
I like to play with my tail. It’s one of my favorite toys.
And there’s no better place to play with my tail than on the cat tree. I love doing flips and seeing how many times I can grab my tail!
I love to sleep under the comforter on the bed. The lady with the yellow hair says I’m gonna suffocate under there!
I have no interest in going outside. Must be because I spent my early days out there and I’ve had enough!
I like laying on the guy’s jeans…’specially if he’s wearing them.
I love getting brushed. When the brush comes out…I come a’ running!
But I hate getting my nails clipped. I fight “toof and nail” and I throw in some bunny kicks too, trying to stop the clipping!
Now, I’m supposed to pass this award on to 7 of my furiends. Well, I’m so happy that I got this award all to myself, I’m passing it on to everybuddy…’cept those boycats that live here!!

We received The Addictive Blog Award from some new kitties we met the other day…Hemingway and Shakespeare! Thanks, guys! If you haven’t met these two yet, why dontcha go on over and say hello??
The rules for this award are pretty simple:
Thank the one awarding you
Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started
Paste the award on your blog
Nominate 10 other blogs you are addicted to and let them know you gave them the award
We started blogging almost 5 years ago in December 2007. The mom always wanted a website where she could post “cute pictures” of us, but she’s technologically challenged and didn’t know where to begin. So for Christmas, the dad-guy, as a surprise for the mom, had a couple of techy guys set up this blog for her.
At first, the mom thought it was gonna be HER blog…that she would post pictures of us and tell stories about us and other cat stuff. In fact, if you go back through some of our early archives, you’ll see posts that the mom did. But then she let us do a couple of posts ourselves. And we LOVED blogging! And then we found the Cat Blogosphere and met lots of other cats that blogged, too. So we hi-jacked the blog away from the mom and the rest…as they say…is history!
Now we’re supposed to give this award to 10 bloggers whose blogs we’re addicted to. Well, y’know what? We’re addicted to WAY more than 10 blogs and we can’t choose. So here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re giving this award to the first 10 bloggers that leave a comment here on our post. Congratulations! We hope you’re as addicted to us as we are to you!!
Hey…is there a 12 step program for bloggers??
