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??

Hey! It’s me…Ernie! The other day, our furiends from Holland, Lars and Odin over at Bengal Business, gave us this great award that they created.
When we first saw it, we thought that it was supposed to say LIFE and that Lars and Odin made a BIG typo! But they told us that the award really does say LIEF which means SWEET in Dutch! Aw, thanks for the award, guys! We think you’re really sweet for giving it to us! If you haven’t met Lars and Odin yet, go on over and say hello!!
Lars and Odin asked that we pass this award on to 3 deserving bloggers. This is really hard to do because we think all our blogging furiends deserve this sweet award! But, we did our best to choose 3.
We give this award to…
Truffle and Brulee - These two girlcats are just the sweetest and they make their Mom Paula very happy!
Penelope and Kozmo – We know these Cats from Hell try to put on a tough act, but deep down, they’re pretty sweet!
And last but not least, Katie Isabella, the newest sweetie in the Cat Blogosphere! Katie is temporarily using her angel sister, Admiral Hestorb’s blog until she gets one of her own. Welcome, Katie! We look forward to getting to know you better!!
Enjoy your award! And remember to pass it on to 3 more deserving…and sweet…bloggers!!
