Meezer Monday

(dedicated to my sister Stormie)

A happy Meezer Monday to you all!

Today I am going to look back and remember my lovely sister and celebrate one of her milestones. Two years ago on December 16th she was first diagnosed with lymphoma and started treatment, then a year later she decided to celebrate still being alive (and exceeding her 6-9 months of remaining life prediction) by creating the Extra-Ordinary Gold Star Award.

In honour of my sister I am going to revive the award as there are so many new kitties around who deserve this award - and lots of 'old-timers' who do too!

The Extraordinary Gold Star Award was created by my sister Storm, The Furry Fighter - and is for Bloggers who have achieved or done something special. The award celebrates beyond what is ordinary or usual.

1) Post the explanation and rules of the award and link back to the blogger who presented you with the award and repeat the reason why you received it.

2) Pass the Award on to THREE other Bloggers who you fink deserve it and explain why!

So here are my three awardees:

Deb at The Taylor Catssss - for doing so much for the Cat Blogosphere, raising funds for sick kitties and going beyond what is usual in helping others.

ML at Missy & KC - for the exact same reason as above!

Niko & Cloud's Mum & Dad - for being brave and caring and nursing their adorable Texas through lymphoma so carefully...and for giving a home to two wonderful little kittens :)

There are soooooo many more people that deserve this award too, so I hope it manages to get around and bring a smile to those who receive it!

Love Castle Pants (and Timmy Tantrum)

That is a wonderful idea to revive Stormie's Award. You picked good cats and beans to pass it on too.
