Saturday Stars

Saturday is our day to leap around to shift Äiti from her pit.  We've had a very leapy start to last week, and then a sad end. We thank you for your good wishes yesterday. Today however I am grateful for   two awards. First, the 'Honey I shrunk the Pig' award from Nellie at the Cat From Hell blog. This is for multi pet households - thanks to Tessie-kilpikonna we qualify! Tessie is sleeping away the winter under some book shelves. Just as well, it's chilly outside now.
And then I have this 'Best Blog of the year' with stars to fill in This is from Simba and Audrey from Simba's Antics
Now each time someone is nominated for the award they gain a star and the idea is to get all stars highlighted and then, well we are not sure what happens then but we are sure it will involve more joyous leaping. The etiquette is to award it to 6 blogs, including the original awarder. So I am nominating: Simba's Antics (of course!); the Katnip Lounge , Spitty Speaks (just to prove I am not resentful about being just his 7th best buddy and not geting the award from him!), Prancer Pie , the Poupounette and Mark's Mews
There are of course many other deserving loyal readers, to whom I apologise.
King Spitty did try to make amends by sending me a kingly crown to add to my collection.
It suits me well, and a swift bite did prove it is made of metal and not chocolate, so I extend grateful thanks to the Prince of Kiimamaa.
And here is some more leaping Ruska is pouncing on the string.
He is a fluffball of enthusiasm, and a mighty string hunter.
Happy Saturday - here's to a good weekend! And we WILL make Äiti decide a winner for the comment competition - promise!

You have a look King, that surely a trip to poo corner could take care of!

Concatulations on the award! If any kitty family deserves this, it is certainly you guys!

Well, first, who the Sam Hill is Tessie-Tortoise? I have carefully reviewed the rogue's gallery at the top of your page and do not find her. Please eludicate.

Hmm, ask yourself: Am I **really** "seventh-bestest"? I mean, what if it's "twenty-seventh"?? Something to ponder, is it not, my royal buddy, as you survey your kingdom? King Spitty has not forgotten the meaning of Kiimamaa, you know.

Well, I guess that's just about all for now. Oh yes, about the non-chocolate crown. Well, I believe I have heard chocolate is unsafe for kitties, and, 7th or 27th, I have no wish to commit Feline Regicide. Hence, the 24-carat gold. Just a small token of esteem to the King of Finland (North).

Oh you are looking so regal. I hope everyone stays in your good graces.

Ha! My Human has sent me here because she says it was rood, even for me, not to have thanked you for my STAR. I say I was so consumed with curiosity about Tessie Tortoise I could hardly have been expected to remember by Royal Manners.

Still, having been properly chastised, privately by my Human, and here in public by your Royal Majesty, I come to humbly seek your forgiveness for my transgressions. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

So, thank you for the STAR. It is the nicest, shiniest star ever and I shall treasure it for always.

Okay, are you speaking to me again now? Are you going to tell me about Tessie, or do I have to read back through months (years?) of the Life of Punapippuri, King of Finland (North)? Or perhaps you were a mere prince back then?

Katnip Lounge said...

Well. Now we have SOMETHING ELSE to add to Mommy'e ever-growing List of Infractions; her refusal to publish awards as of late.

SO, in the spirit of International Cooperation, please post a star for yourselves from Us, the Nevada commoner-cats.

Cripes...can't get a decent secretary nowadays...always breaking body parts and whingeing about pain...blah blah blah.

Mr. Black said...

Punapippuri, that is indeed a very nice crown. You do look however, as if you have a bit of indigestion! And, is that a little bit of fang showing??

I am very jealous of Ruska's fluffiness. I have fur, but no fluff.

Kari said...

Congratulations on your awards! You certainly deserve them.
Ruska! Hurrah! We are so glad to see you! Such a beautiful kitty!
Puna dear, " Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown". So says Shakespeare. From the look on your your sweet, kingly face, we agree.

Oh GOODNESS! We JUST noticed that you awarded us a star! Thank you so much and please accept our apologies for being late about it!
