An Awardie

Nerissa, handsome mancat that he is, awarded me with a beautiful award.   It's the Thinking of You award.
Thank you Nerissa, you handsome mancat you.  xoxo

I'm supposed to tell you 7 things I love.

I love peace and quiet at night and when I'm at the door watching TV.  NO cats or raccoons.

I love breakfast, lunch, and supper and I've found I hork less that way (three small meals).

I love sleeping wif mom in our bed mashed up against her or at the foot of the bed.

I love my Neko fly.  The tarantula one especially so.

I love sleeping on the recliner, rocker and couch back.

I love crawling up on mom's lap, making her legs go to sleep by staying a few hours sleeping on her.

I love my fevver wands and  my dangly denim bow on a wand.  ("Kitty Tease")

Mom said to tell you that no one was in the trap this morning and the trapper said it could be that because we had bad thunderstorms during the night, that may have curtailed activity.  But I had a good night sleep and so did mom.  We brought the hummingbird feeder in again and put it back out early in the morning.  The hummers are "bulking up" for their trip back to Mexico and Central America.  Mom does NOT like to take the feeder in at all.

Mom won't do anything that would harm the animals which ever get into the trap.  And while mom wants them away from here and the damage they do, she can't control what happens when they are turned loose elsewhere.  If they scare another kitty elsewhere or damage another place, then that is something mom can't control.  She just wanted me to tell you that.


  1. Oh Katie... those are GREAT things to love. And... thanks for calling me handsome. purrs

  2. We are glad you slept well and Mom too. Maybe bringing in the hummer nectar will mean the raccoon stays away, though a thunderstorm sounds like quite a deterrent too.

  3. Congratulations on your award, Katie. I keep telling Mommy that raccoons aren't those cute cuddly things she sees on Walt Disney. Silly Mommy. I sure hope the raccoon is caught really soon. I don't like the look of those claw marks one bit! xoxoxo

    Love, Boomie

  4. Concats on your Awardie, pretty Katie. We glad you and Mom got sleep last night.

  5. We hope that mean old raccoon can be relocated very soon.

  6. Congrats Miss Katie on the beautiful award! xo

  7. Beautiful Katie Isabella!! Awwww huge congratulations with your very pretty award!! It's very pretty - just like you!!

    Awwww you have the bestest sleeping places right next to mum and on her legs! LOL!!!

    Hope you both have peaceful calm nights!!

    Take care

  8. Well to catch something in your trap, you will have to be vwery vwerey quiet... hope you get a photo for us if you do catch someone!

  9. Congrats on the award, Katie.

    Yes, we are sure Admiral is now walking 'tail-in-tail' with Cinders.
    Thank you for your comforting words and purrs.

    We love you. Purrs!

  10. Congrats Katie!!! I sure am glad you both got some snoozy time!

  11. Concats on that award! It's purrfect fur you as we are thinking about you often. Happy Tuesday, sweet Katie. xoxo

  12. Concats on your great award, sweet Katie! We love you, so we really enjoyed learning about those things YOU love. :)

    Glad to hear you and Mommy got some good snoozing in...

  13. Congratulations Katie on the award. Now hopefully tomorrow you'll have another award - a captured raccoon. M says the are cute little critters, but they can also cause a lot of damage.

  14. Congratulations on your award! We love the things you love!
    So the thunder didnt bother you but the raccoon did? Interesting..

  15. Concatulations on your award, Katie! I hope you get a little - make that a LOT more peace!

  16. Concats to you dear Katie. Peace is a precious commodity xox

  17. Dearest Katie!
    I was not trying to suggest that you shouldnt have been afraid of the raccoon! I may have phrased that backwards! What I meant was the fact that you were NOT afraid of the storm, and slept well through it, was interesting! I myself, the human, cannot do such a thing.. And the kitties are not fond of storms either. Leo is bigger than the average raccoon, but Star is not. Leo would run, Star would try to show them who's boss and I'd have to grab her up and get sliced in the process! It's interesting what scares one kitty and what doesn't another.

  18. Awww Katie you are simply so sweet.
    We are so glad you and your Mom got a good sleeps last night, we hope those night critters have just moved on. Concats on your terrific award.

  19. Congratulations on your award! You deserve lots of awards, anyway. :-)

    That is a very interesting list. It seems we have no raccoons around here, but our late Hemingway (OTRB 2007) used to go berserk if he saw another cat in the yard. Gracie & Millie like the recliner, the beds, the dining room chairs, and other places.

    In the late 1980s (yes, LONG before you were born, Miss Katie), I was able to see a couple of very young raccoons up close. Even the little ones had impressive claws!

  20. Hooray for your award, Katie!

  21. Concats on your award! That's a really pretty one, the Mom here loves pansies. We are glad you got a good nights sleep. Hopefully its the first of many!

  22. Concatulations on your award! It's always fun to learn more about you! We're glad you got more sleep last night!

  23. That's a very cool award, Katie! Congrats!! We hope Mr. Raccoon gets trapped soon so things can get back to normal...almost...for you.

  24. CONCATS on that beeYOOtiful awardie! And YAY for a good night's sleep!

  25. Hello my darling! I just loved reading your list today. It makes me want to come visit later. . . I'll bring chick-hens and haff'n'haff and we can tell stories, okay?

  26. We are sorry for all the troubles you have been having, Katie. Life can be like that sometimes. We do think that you love absolutely great things! If all the outside cats and raccoons would just stay away, life would be purrfect. Please stay your sweet happy self. Purrs.

    Laura & Taffy

  27. Glad you got good sleep! And congrats on the award!

    I went looking for your Olympic entries so I could vote for you, but I can't figure out where to vote?! Ack! I found you on the crazy sleeping singles event, but how do I vote?

  28. Conga rats on your award Katie. We loved hearing all those facts about you. Take care.

  29. CONCATULATIONS on your beautiful NEW award!!!! It is well deserved!

  30. I am sooo very happy you got a great nigh sleep and I LOVE the new award you got and learning more about you!
    I think I am in LOVE
