Easy On Sunday—WINNING!

Yesterday was a big day for me. I'm sorry I didn't get to visit with furrends but I'll make up for it, I promise. You see I WON THE BLOGPAWS NOSE TO NOSE AWARD for TWITTER DESIGN. Yes, this stunning ittle ghetto kitteh is now sporting some heavy-duty hardware! Woot! Now I know what Beyonce feels like when she wins all those Grammies! I was sure busy what with the phone calls, the innerviews, the photo shoots! Everyone wants a piece of me and you guys can say you knew me when!

This is gonna look great in my trophy case—and the peeps better BUY me a trophy case. I've earned it.

How about this award! Dunno why they had to put TW's name on it too. It was all ME.
We were Live Streaming and what a roar went up in La Casa Keisha, as well as at Blogpaws when my name was announced. Thanks to all my furrends in attendance that believed in this kitty from da hood. I especially want to send a shoutout to my homey @MaggieTKat, who called the minute I won, and to @BoSoxAmy, who saw me hitchin' and graciously gave me a ride to Salt Lake City and cushy accommodations. And I can't forget Glogirly, who designed my winning Twitter page! You guys are the bestest.

Here's my acceptance speech:
I'd like to thank Blogpaws and Halo Purely for Pets for recognizing this little ghetto kitteh. I'm accepting this award for all the ferals, strays and shelter cats, who haven't yet found their furever homes, and are not s lucky as I am.
I feel like I've revolutionized cats on Twitter. When I first logged on back in May of 2009, all the cats I befriended were sweet, cutesy and submissive. Since I came on with my brashness and always keeping it real attitude, more and more have imitated me, thank Cod. Everyone knows most cats aren't lovable and sweetness, but we're independent. We take no prisoners and we bite the ones we do take.

What, besides this cool piece of hardware did I win? My charity, A Call 4 Paws, will be getting 5,000 bowls of pet food (and I'm sure Linda digging on it cos it's grain-free)! My furrends at the cat sanctuary will be having dinner on me for a few weeks.

I heard from Linda last night and she's as THRILLED as I am!

AND, if all this wasn't good enough, I found out that my sisfur for a day, Isabel, now has her own furever home and is thriving!

Oh CK, that is so exciting and no one deserves it better than you. We need to get out mom off her duff and learn how to do Twitter. She is such a doofus. We are very excited that you won that. Good job. Have a great day.

Concats and smoochies on your award, CK!! (Besides, I knew you had the cutest nose all along :)

Twitter, schmitter. Mom Julie's cutting back on all her social networking lately. I guess I'll have to pick up the slack.

Hugs,

Oh CK - I am so happy and thrilled for you. You deserve every second of the award and praise. I missed the live streaming so had no idea who won anything. I'm so happy you did girl - not bad for a ghetto girl. You'll give all the ferals out there hope for a future like yours. (Oh, I'm one of the "other" kitties that is good almost all the time - really!)
