Shine On Brightly

Singing the old Procol Harum song for the Shine On Award.

Blog posts sometimes write themselves. I was trying to decide what to write about so I thank the Lone Star Cats for nominating me for the Shine On Award and giving me a blog post. I’ve lost track of what awards I’ve received but I think this might be my first time for this one.

There are four rules for me to toss aside and break if I care to.
  1. Visit and thank the blogger that nominated me.
  2. Acknowledge that blogger on my blog and link back.
  3. Share seven random facts about myself.
  4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On award, provide a link to their blog and notify them on their blog.
Facts … you want facts? My life has been an open book since I started this blog.
  • I’m stunning. When TW sent my Petfinder link to her BFF Pauline, she received an email back with the comment that I was a very stunning cat. Since I am, the description stuck. In fact, last week over lunch, Aunt Pauline mentioned to TW that I’m still the most stunning cat she’s ever seen.
  • I’m a very picky eater. All I got at the shelter was Iams kibble and to this day I prefer kibble to stinky goodness. The peeps only give me kibble for a treat. Bummer.
  • I’m still partly feral. I like to bite and attack the peeps so sue me.
  • I’m part Russian Blue but my tailio has tabby stripes.
  • I only use the right side of the litter box in the front.
  • I don’t like shrimp, bacon or beef in cat food or human food.
  • I once sat in a plate of cranberry jelly. Heh heh.

Bonus fact: I also like playing with my foam rockets.

So there you have it. Here’s where I break the rules. The buck stops here. Anyone who covets this award can have it. The little ghetto kitteh is no nominating committee plus rule #4 seems like a lot of work.

Kitty Cat Chronicles said...

Concats on the award! We enjoyed reading your facts. Sassy too likes to only use one side of the litter box. She piles up the litter in one corner. What a silly girl! That cranberry jelly incident sounds pretty interesting too…

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Okay, Travis gived me the award too and I think I will post about it tomorrow . . . but I can tell you straight up I dont have NUFFING like the cranberry sauce incident. NUFFING.

Jobi Harris said...

Congrats on your award. You sure have us wondering, though. WhatEVER came over you that would sit in a plate of cranberry jelly? I am going to conjue up that image whenever I get into a lousy mood. That will take care of it.

Fur Everywhere said...

Concats on your award! We learned some new things about you.

Clooney said...

Yes we concur with the "stunning". And we bet that was TW's jelly...huh?

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Sitting in a plate of cranberry jelly sounds messy. Was it in your dish?

It was nice talking to you last night CK.
