Oh I got such a cool award from Jan's Funny Farm! It is the Gold Card Award, and it is given to bloggers who "are always working to make things better for all cats and doggies". Well...thank you everyone over at The Farm! Despite being a Meezer, I do sometimes make the effort to think of others!
I now must give the award to 5 friends. Four of these friends must be dedicated followers of our blog. One should be a new blogger and live in a different part of the world. Each awardee must link back to whomever gave the award. That sounds easy enough, except it is really hard to just pick 5 friends but here we go.
I can't think of many new bloggers who live in a different country to me that are new to reading my blog - cos I am quite new myself. I guess my pal Texas would be the best match for this category, and he is very helpful in sharing knowledge bout his treatment for lymphoma, so he can have the award!
And for the 4 regular readers I am going to choose the following, but I wish I could choose many more:
I am not sure this should be included in a Thankful Thursday, but I keep seeing my Meowmie looking at the following picture...apparently he is a contender for the position of "Castle's Friend (and subordinate)". He is a healthy 13.5 years old and possibly hard-of-hearing (to be confirmed), he has a scarred nose and a torn ear (not as handsome as me then). Sadly his Meowmie died and he needs a new Forever Home.
I have never met a male cat before so the Meowmies are going to go and suss him out and see if he is a good fit, then they have some long, hard thinking to do. We all still miss Storm terribly and need to reassure ourselves that we are not rushing into anything cos we still feel sad. There's no denying though that I am alone rather alot when they are at work though.
The Meowmies were only considering females for the position of "Castle's Friend (and subordinate)" cos they thought that would be best cos that's what I know, but they have since read that integrations are a tad easier between two males, so they are now considering both sexes for my friend...hmmm, we'll see...!
If you have any experience of integrations, please tell us about them in the comments bit!
