Team Tabby gave me this very nice award. Mom is just getting her lazy self into gear enough to post it. Here are the rules:
Upon receipt of the award, one is to:
1) Link back to the blogger who gave it
2) Paste the award on the blog
3) Choose 5 blogs to pass this award to (they must have fewer than 200 followers)
4) Let the recipients know about their nomination by leaving a comment on their blogs.
It is very hard to pick only five friends to pass this along to, but I'll do my best.

Now for a bit about what's been going on around here. Mom measured the dry food in my bowl and it was just about right. I would never eat that much dry food in one day.
Karen Jo: I am going to start making sure that you have only 1/2 cup of dry food in your bowl from now on. I think that even that is more than you eat in a day. It looks like I might have to follow the vet's suggestion about giving you a light lunch after all.
I think I'll survive. I rarely eat it all, anyway. I have found a new way to tease my Mom. I got her at dawn this morning for breakfast and as soon as she got into the kitchen I started eating the leftover Medley.
Karen Jo: I think you were just trying to get two breakfasts. You know I would never take a dish away from you while you are eating.
It worked, too. Mom gave me fresh Stinky Goodness at dawn and fresh Medley when she got up. Score!
Karen Jo: You do realize that you got the same amount of food you always get, just split up into two breakfasts, don't you?
That's OK. The plan was to get two breakfasts. Mom brought a strange kitty into the house today.
Karen Jo: I saw that same little kitty with tortie markings in my yard that I had seen months ago out in the snow. This time she came up to me and rubbed against my leg. She let me pick her up and read her tag, though she wasn't too happy about it. Once I had the phone number firmly in my head, I brought her into the house and put her in Emma's room. Then I called her Mom, who came to pick her up. She just lives up the street and is an indoor/outdoor cat who sometimes wanders.
Herman: I am glad that her Mom came for her right away. She hissed and growled at me while you were carrying her by.
She was probably just scared of you, Herman. She was just about Emma's size and you are so much bigger. I am just very relieved to know that she has a home nearby wasn't a lost kitty. I felt really bad the time that I saw her out in the snow and she ran away from me.
