Wow - we got an award. The Life is Good Award. Thank you to the Creek Cats bunch.
Hang on, it's for Äiti! It's for 'Moms who help our kitties blog'. Answer the questions, then pick five Moms to pass it along to.
Now Äiti has to answer these questions; why can't I answer them - it's my blog!?

1. What would your prefect day consist of?

A slow start with lots of cat cuddles, an English breakfast, successful day bird watching (pah! Punapippuri) and photographing, then a sauna and sofa cuddle with many cats.

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?
Worn out, over-stretched but comfortable

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?
Designing a cat climber for the catio (get on with it then! Punapippuri) and photography - as always.

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?
At the moment, the beach as the woods here have millions of mosquitoes.

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?
Only to find out how long my arms are.

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?
Ideally growing my own but it's a bit hard here most of the year, so it has to be the supermarket.

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper?
Make it an Indian takeway! Definitely not posh.

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or water?
Water. It's really incredible living near a lake which is frozen for 5 months a year.

10. Do you believe in fairies?
Who else cleans the furballs up ? Punapippuri. NO! Äiti

Okay, now to pass it on to five moms - this is actually quite hard as Carolyn deserves one but doesn't have a blog (but could start!); then Maggie May (of course); Juuso; Christopher's Groove (whose mom has not blogged recently but she does totally awesome work); and Ginger Jasper (whose mom does many other fantastic things as well as looking after GJ).

Hey, we just gave this award to your mom too! Double congrats to her! Great answers!

Catio Tales said...

No äiti is just stupid!!!! The award did come from your mom she got the link wrong and is correcting it right now. Stoopid human

The Creek Cats said...

MOL!! Don't be so hard on Aiti :) We loved the answers and it's so great to learn more about her!

Thanks for passing it along to our sisfur Maggie May, but since we share a mom, we won't post the answers again. But Maggie May will display the award with pride in her trophy case!

P.S. The darn mosquitos are terrible here too!

YUM! Indian takaway...Suprisingly there are few good small resuarants in Las Vegas. Only crappy big chains and posh places with sky-high prices. Mommy would kill for a decent chicken curry.

We enjoyed learning about your mom!

Congratulations o the award. Great answers. I love reading about the mums. Thank you so much for passing on to my mum. We got it but are double blessed to get again and will add you to it.. Hugs GJ xx

Catio Tales said...

Thank you all. I still think I should get the award, not Äiti, hehehe. And I made äiti give it to Maggie May even though she is a Creek Cat as her Mom is extra special for nursing little M-M through TWO naughty patellae - and that takes very good Mommy skills.

Äiti is very pleased that there are THREE Indian restaurants here in Oulu - they are some of the most northern in the world. It's over 1050km to the next ones. She never brings us any chicken tandoori though, which is very mean.

Thank you! And maybe Bramble and Treacle will have a blog one day.
