Mid-Week News Briefs

Bear with me cos I'm still playing "catch-up" from the past few weeks.

Have I ever told you what a slacker TW is? The Blogpaws' Awards were handed out about 6 months ago, but TW finally saw fit to send my press release to the local newspaper, The Reporter. I'm happy to say they didn't waste much time at all in printing it. Yes! This little ghetto kitten was written up in the paper again. TW had no luck getting me to pose with the paper so she just screen-printed it from their website. You may notice one discrepancy: that is NOT my photo! It's Plush CK aka HHGutt. Amy Palmer took the photo at Blogpaws. Seems, heh heh, I wouldn't pose with the award either. Did I mention that TW just put in the order for my $100 worth of Halo noms?

In a similar vein, while the peeps were at their condo association meeting last week, they met a nice lady who recognized The Real Housecats! She'd read the original article about me (see sidebar). I have a fan! High paws to Tammy if she's reading this! I hope your hubby and his slate wins.

In more recent news, TW received an email informing her she'd won a kazzillion £ in the 13th Birthday celebration of Google. I thought they used Euros but what do I know. I'm a cat who was born in the USA! Sounds too good to be true and after she googled it, it was. Kinda ironic that gmail didn't flag it, you know, being that they're PART of Google and stuff. Hisses to them! If you get one of these, don't send them any info cos they'll make your nine lives a living hell.

Lots of furrends needing healing purrz. Don't want to start naming them cos I know I'll leave some out and cause hard feelings. Our friend, Marg, has a ChipIn on her blog because she's run up against some big v-e-t bills for Jasmine, her precious doggy who has kidney failure. Marg has done so much to help others in need so it's only right that we help her. She's living on a fixed income but Cod chose her to look after many of his four-legged creatures. (It's taking every ounce of strength in my furry body not to go off on a political rant right here. Must … control … emotions …) Purrs for Marg and Jasmine.

Congratulations! That is wonderful!
Twenty five years ago we bought our house. We bought catnip, and planted it in the herb section of our garden. It has literally taken over our neighborhood. *lol*

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Rocket girl!

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady said...

Happy Wednesday! You're sure good to your 'nip. Our catnip plants never last more than a few days before we tear them right out of the dirt.

Mariodacat said...

Oh dear - what are you going to do about TW. She's about as dependable as M. I think they are both untrainable.

Sweet Purrfections said...

We don't even have a nip plant!

CATachresis said...

Do you get those emails from Rev Nbongo Mgongo in Nigeria as well? We have quite a relationship going … well we will do when he coughs up the millions he’s promised!!!

Katie Isabella said...

I LOVE seeing you wif your rockets!

There are so many cats who need our purrs and I am working hard to purr for them as much as I can knowing other Anipals are too.

Yes, mommy was stove in from a HORRIBLE sent-her-to-her-Vet muscle spasm. Her betters. Fanks. xox

The Island Cats said...

How cool, CK, that TW met someone who read about The Real Housecats!

Mr Puddy said...

Conga-rats on the big win--especially since it comes in the form of NOMS. Good stuff!

Also, coolio! You have a real live fan! I have one too, but she's a friend of the Human's and a dog owner so she doesn't really count.

We did chip in some green papers for Marg--she is a total saint and we loves her for all the care she gives. Plus, we nefur knowed anybody else wif DONKEYS!

Clooney said...
