Awards on Wednesday

I got myself TWO awards to announce! This is truly incredible cos Meowmie hasn't helped me visit at all lately, so we are humbled that people still visit us and think about us. I am going to FORCE Meowmie to make time each week to come and visit you all. She really needs to organise her time more efficiently.

My first award is from the lovely Black Cat and is the Blogging Friends Forever Award. Black cat's friend 'Pinky' is thinking of adopting a cat - you must drop by and encourage him as mush as possible! I have had this award before so will share it with my fiend, Timmy Tantrum. Although they may already have it, I would like to pass this on to Princess, Casey Meezer Diva, Isis, Fat Cat Muffin and Miss Peach.

My second award is from Niko and Cloud, who now live with our old pal Texas's Slaves. This award is the 'I Love Your Cats' Award and we are so happy to get this from these two little adorable balls of fluff! I have to share this one with Timmy anyway, as it was awarded to both of us. We shall pass this on to Kaze, Latte and Chase, Daisy and Harley, Jan's Funny Farm and KC and ML

You know, I am such a nice cat to Timmy, he needs to start being a bit nicer to me though. He just wants to nip me, bat at my back legs and chase me around, which is OK sometimes as I like a game as much as the next nearly-13-year-old-cat, but at other times I just want to chill. Luckily for me, cos he can't quite see properly he loses sight of me if I run from him quickly, and because his ears aren't quite right he mostly can't hear where I am, so he just sits there looking a bit confused sometimes.

I don't think we have mentioned that we think Timmy's vision might not be quite right did we? Well, basically we don't think his periphery vision is very good cos Meowmie dangles toys by the side of his head and he has no idea they are there, plus a couple of times he has hissed and jumped at a cat-size cat statue that my Meowmie has. He also misjudges heights and a few times when he has tried to jump up on the sofa he hasn't quite made it...and vice versa, when he has jumped down from soemthing he lands a bit hard or not quite on his feet, as if he reached the floor sooner than he thought he would! It's not enough of a disability to hinder him though, he still jumps around after wand toys...but Meowmie just has to move them a little slower so he doesn't lose sight of them.

Congratulations on your awards! They're well deserved.

Considering Timmy was an only cat for so many years, it's great he wants to play with you. Even if he's a little rough in his play, I think it's very good.

Isis said...

Ooh thank you for my charge card award Castle (and Timmy too), I shall go out and by myself lots and lots of lovely goodies with it now! ;) Well ok so mostly I wanna charge eer services to the card right this moment... *blush* Mummy says I have to be good for a few more weeks and then after the Supreme I can wail all I want and she'll take me to visit Solo for a nice time!!!! Well ok so I'm a shameless hussy, but at least I'm a sweet natured shameless hussy! :)

Thanks again for the award!

Purrs and kisses,

Congratulations on your awards. Try to be a little patient with Timmy as it sounds like he might be frustrated with some limited vision.

Daisy said...

I think Timmy sounds like an extra-special cat. I am glad you are taking the time to be so nice to him while he is adjusting to you.

Congratulations on your awards! And thank you for thinking of me, too!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Thank you so much for the award!! I think its good you see that stuff about Timmy because he probably can't help that the world is a little extra scary for him.

Mom has had dogs with poor vision or no vision (as well dogs with poor hearing or no hearing) and it did change their temperament and curb their activities a little. We think it is wonderful that you're trying help him adjust to his new environment and possibly a new physical challenge!

Concatulations on your awards, they are well deserved! It's good to see how well you and Timmy are doing Castle - you're being ever so patient.

Black Cat said...

It does seem as though Timmy has some problems with his sight. I can't judge distances either with my double vision so I know how he feels!

I went to the Siamese Rescue site and fell in love with the little 2 year-old girlie and several others too! By the time Pinky is ready to adopt they will probably all have found forever homes. Of course I hope they do as there so many cats needing loving homes. Pinky is having a new kitchen installed and then a new bathroom so it will be a while until his house is cat-safe. :) xxx

Congratulations on your awards!

I think cats adapt well to all sorts of issues. I am glad that Timmy has such a loving and patient human.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Dearest Castle! I am so honored that you have given me such a nice credit card Awardie. conCATulations on getting both of them yourself.
You are such a fine friend to your new Timmy meezer. It can not be easy for him after so long to share his life with a new buddy in a new place. You are very patient and I love you for giving him such a chance to live out his life.
All my love, Miss Peach

Concats on all of your awards to both you and Timmie, Castle. You're being a great brother to Timmie, Castle, especially as he must be a little uncomfortable 'cos he can't see or hear as well as you can. It's nice that the two of you have agreed to sleep on the same bed and share your Meowmie. Hope you guys continue to enjoy hanging out together,

Poor Timmy. You're being a good brother to him.

Lux said...

Many congrats to you on the great awards! It's good that you're being so nice to Timmy, Castle.

Mickey said...

Congrats on your awards!!!!!!
I am glad that you and Timmy are playing more even if if he does most of the chasing ;)
It sounds like he may have a few issues. Maybe that is why he is taking a while to get close to you. He probably feels vulnerable.
Purrs Mickey

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Congratulations on your awards, Castle and Timmy. And thank you for sharing the one with us. We will post it soon. We're a bit behind again. sigh.

We're glad Timmy's vision doesn't keep him from having fun.

Camie's Kitties said...

Congratulations on you awards. We are sorry to hear that you think Timmy might have a vision problem. He is lucky to have found you to be his forever home because some people are mean and wouldn't want him.

Tiki, Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

Congratulations on your award Castle.

Maybe Ben Vet could tell you more about Timmy's vision and hearing issues? He's certainly at an age when hearing can start to go.

I am so pleased to see you both relaxing together now, both of you in the doughnut bed is great progress.

Your Meowmies are very kind and patient to help Timmy acclimatise!
