Wow! I am stepping back in amazement: I got an award!
Thank you to Zoe and Fuzzy, the OK cats, who also wrote some very nice things about me on their blog. Now I have to do two things:
1. Link to the blog who gave the award - done that!
2. Say seven things about myself that might not be public knowledge (but I am a modest, shy mancat - how can I possibly......?)
3. Pass this on to seven blogs we think are stylish.

Okay, seven things that you might not be known about me.......
  • I am bilingual: my mother-miaow is Finnish but I can also miaow in English. I understand what all perheeni says - but maybe sometimes I do not listen.
  • I do not have a big appetite - in fact I probably eat the least of all of us
  • I don't often make a noise, in fact Äiti says I squeak (until I get in the car that is - then I sing my heart out).
  • I am beginning to let Äiti comb me (but not my tummy furs)
  • I was born in the wild, in a place called Muhos which has fields and not many forests (unusual in Finland)
  • I do not purr very much
  • I love washing Äiti's hands, especially the hand which is typing or holding a book she is reading.
And now I have to pass this on to seven blogs. This is going to be so hard. I read many blogs and it's impossible to choose - and the OK Cats have already snaffled some I would award the accolade too.......
So, I choose: Maggie May (my girlfriend - she has tortie style!), The Poupounette, The Cujo Cat Chronicles, Rumblebum, Fuzzy Tales, WeezDaBadCats & DaMeenDawg, and Eric and Flynn's Adventures. All of these blogs have their own individual style, and are very different. They span three continents as well so working out the climate and the time zones is great fun. I look forward to reading about you guys.

And thank you again to the OK Cats for my award - after all the things I have written about you girlcats too, hehehe.

Congratulations on your well-deserved award! And thank you for including us when passing it on. :-)

The mom will have to give some thought to those 7 things about us!

P.S. Tell Äiti that your photo is terrific -- great motion capture!

We're impressed that you were able to do this so fast, King Punapippuri! It took our mom ages to think of things to tell about us. We were going to stop by earlier and tell you about the award, but our mom got busy at work. We love the photo to go along with your award!!!!

ConCats on your award!

We almost fainted reading about your light appetite. You must keep a lean mean cardboard killing machine under all your floof, which you are starting to allow to be combed.

We think you need sardines every day to fatten you up!

We love the photo, Puna-Chan!

Thanks for the award. We won't be able to do it justice until next week, though!

Psssssstttttt... did you get her to give you any of the treats?

We agree with Kea, love that photo!! And also on you getting the award...we think you guys are great, too!! Those 7 bits of info were good...funny how we have ideas of what a country should look like...I didn't imagine Finland with lots of forests, but you say it is unusual to be from a place with no forest. But why don't you purr much?? Purring is like laughing, it does a heart good!! Purr my friend!! And thank you, too, for including us when you passed on the award. This is going to be a brain tickler...seven things about us...hmmm....my brain is hurting already just thinking about it!! ouch! Purrs to you all, Lautrec, Tiny and Ellwood

Congratulations on your award : )
I'm pretty surprise you don't do much purrs. I love this award. It's something to know about you

What an awesome photo! A well deserved award to be sure. We are new to your bloggie, and are amazed by the exquisite cat photography. Our mum can rarely get a photo of us that is anything but a big blur. And your mum's photos of black cats are truly amazing. (Our mum loves black cats). Also, because we are new, we really appreciate learning about you.
In celebration of your award, some yummy treats will be consumed in you honour.
