Whoa! I'm Happening

Just when I thought I was becoming a Has-Been and would soon be axed to judge one of those talent shows along with the other has-beens like JLo, Mariah and Nikki, I get The Next Big Thing Blogging Award, not once but twice. I guess that means I'm relevant again. If you thought my head my big before … MOL!

I was thrilled to get the award first from one of my fellow #Nipclub DJs, @GizmoGeoDog, who has the great Terrier Torrent blog. We both hung out at Nipclub and never realized the other had a blog. Can you imagine that?

Then I got the award from the Cherry City Kitties, Harry, Dexter and Tipp. They've only been blogging since last July and only have 59 followers (hint hint). They're 3 rescue kitties with big hearts, who are meowin' to get other cats adopted.

I looked up the rules for this award and found that I'm supposed to thank the cats who nominated me (which I've done), nominate 5 other lucky recipients and answer some questions about a work-in-progress. Dunno about that last part. I don't think it applies to cat bloggers although it might refer to my as-yet-unmade Tower of Power. I hereby nominate:

  1. Jessie Janey of the fairly new blog Jessie & Jane. Jessie lives with her Mum in Australia and is fairly new to the blog world. She did a heart-wrenching post to our furrend @ToughTeddyBear, who went OTRB Thursday. Jane is her Mum.
  2. Selina from One Eye on the Future. I think everyone here knows Selina, the uni ocular kitty from North Carolina. She may be one eye short of a full deck but she's beautiful and smart.
  3. Savannah of Savannah's Paw Tracks. Savvy's time is now cos she's loved by everyone in the CB and beyond. She just celebrated her 1st Gotcha Day and has posted about her recovery as an adult rescue cat.
  4. Quinn of Quinn's Got Catitude. Quinn just started blogging after being adopted to fill the paws of the recently departed and loved Brandi. 2013 is definitely Quinn's year to be The Next Big Thing.
  5. Pasha of the eponymous (now there's a real Vocabulary Building Word) blog. Just what the CB needs, another handsome mancat! Oh yeah!!! *wink* His blog is always filled with great photos of his good looks. Don't let the fact that he's FIV+ scare you away, just use protection. MOL! Love you Pasha.
Now for a gratuitous photo of your Next Big Thing, here I am! Some of my best pictures were taken on my cat tree that's soon to be replaced. The Tree of Pain and I have had some good times together.

AND I'm not finished yet! The lovely Ann Paws of Pawsitively Pets has named this little ghetto kitty one of the 10 Coolest Pets with Blogs of 2012! Here's the infographic to prove it! I'm honored to be in the same company as those other blogs. I read a lot of them and think they're, well, the Coolest.

Would you like to comment?
