Why You Shouldn't Nominate Me For A Blogpaws Nose to Nose Award

Why You Shouldn't Nominate Me For A Blogpaws Nose to Nose Award

My fellow cat lovers. I stand before you as a kitteh who in my mind stands head and tail above everyone else. I understand there are awards that everycat is fighting each other to bring home. I'm not one of them. You'll not see this little ghetto kitteh groveling for nominations like others who we won't nominate for that very reason. This cat has never been about self promotion. There are a lot of talented cats blogging and I don't have to tell you which ones.

Here are some reasons I've made NOT to nominate me. If you have already, I have stopped payment on all checks that were promised. HAH!

  1. I'm already the World's Most Stunning Cat and that's reward enough for me.
  2. Awards don't pay the rent. Really. I tried to sell the Nose to Nose Award my Twitter account won and was offered chump change. Every month or so TW blows the dust off it.
  3. Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Cruise and Glenn Close have never won an Oscar. Does that diminish their acting accomplishments?
  4. Mariano Rivera is the best relief pitcher/closer ever in baseball history but did not win a Cy Young Award.
  5. Did I mention awards don't pay the rent OR the property taxes? 
  6. Can I turn it into 10K page views? I doubt it.
  7. Will brands be falling over each other to have me endorse them and be photographed with their product? Prolly not unless they don't have to pay me.
  8. Pop loves me no matter what and that's all that matters.
  9. That is not the reason we started this blog or added a little blurb outing TW on my About page. 
Now go out and nominate whoever you feel is best. This isn't the Presidential Elections. Nose to Nose Awards aren't that important. Don't nominate me but please consider voting in your state's primary for the candidate with the best record on animal (and human) rights who can make a difference. I'm just a cat who blogs.

Bravo! Very well written! Exactly the kind of incisive prose one would expect from a girlcat of your caliber, CK! ~Allie

Oh you are a clever girl, CK. But whether you're asking for it or not you will get a nomination from me long before I ever vote for him ;)

Paws up, CK! We are all about good animal rights records around here. Not so much about blog awards.

OH CK you are smart and beautiful.

Excellent post. There are so many wonderful blogs, I wish they could all get awards. The best award is that so many cats are helped because of your blog and so many others.
