Thanks to everybuddy that came by yesterday and celebrated Ernie’s Gotcha Day!  It was a fun party!!

Yay!  We recently were honored with 2 more awards!! We received the Honest Scrap Award from both Derby and Grrreta!  Thanks so much!!

This award comes with these rules: “When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows who he or she is.  Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.  Or improvise by including ones who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends.  Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.”  Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.  List at least ten honest things about yourself.  Then, pass it on!”

Well, being cats and all, we don’t follow rules very well…so we’re gonna split the 10 honest things about ourselves between us.  Here goes…


1.  I like to chew plastic.

2.  Don’t tell the gang over at Forty Paws, but I hardly ever sleep in my ham-mick.

3.  I love drinking water out of the sink.

4.  I’m a real momma’s boy.


5.  My name at the animal shelter was Mister…mom changed it to Ernie…I like Ernie lots better!

6.  I’ve locked myself in the bathroom a few times.  Even though I got big feets, I still haven’t figured out how to turn doorknobs.

7.  I chewed right through the coffee-maker cord which did not make mom very happy.  She’s gotta have her caffeine in the morning.


8.  I still get real scared of people and I run and hide from them.

9.  Whenever I go to the v-e-t, I pee and poop in the PTU.  How embarrassing!

10.  I love getting furminated!

Now, for passing it on…once again, we’re skipping the rules and passing it on to Mishkat, Angel and Kirby, and Milo and Alfie!

We also received the Kreativ Blogger Award from Elin, Milo & Alfie, and Tristan Tabby Cat Longtail!  Thank you!!

The rules say we hafta list 6 things that make us happy.  Well, you know how we don’t follow rules…so we’re gonna split these between us too!  Here’s what makes us happy:


1.  Sleeping in dad’s open sock drawer

2.  Going outside, even if it’s on a leash


3.  Getting to go down to the room below

4.  Being brushed by my dad in the morning


5.  Sleeping under the comforter

6.  Playing with my string toy at 5am

And we all agree that having our Cat Blogosphere furiends make us real happy!!

We’re passing this award onto our furiends TuckLaila and Minchie, and Sunny!

  2. Congratulations on your newest awards, Island Cats! We wish we had big feets like you Ernie, but we do not think we would be able to open the bathroom door either.

    ::shhhh:: we do not use our Hammick anymore either unless Mom puts catnip on it for us, but Gandalf’s litter mate sister Sarah is in hers all day, everyday.

  3. You don’t sleep in your Ham-Mick???? That’s ok. Not all poodins do. We still luf you.

    Luf, Us

  19. Wally, Rascal likes to lick plastic (and boxes and socks, etc.). I cannot believe you were named Mister before, Ernie. That’s not a good enough name for such a handsome mancat as you 😉 Zoey, that’s great you love getting furminated. I think I need to get one of those for Sunny.

    Thanks to all of you for passing that award on to Sunny. I know he’ll enjoy it 🙂

  20. I forgot to say, congratulations on your awards 😀 They’re very well deserved.
