A Meme And An Award

The Furry Bambinos recently tagged us for a meme. This meme was created by all of the kitties at Petspix. Here are the rules:

You have to post who tagged you and link back to them and then to Petspix. Then you have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal.

What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?

Well the first one is easy. We would drive Jan's car again and this time we'd actually drive it on the road instead of into the bushes - with headlights instead of a flashlight.

We felines would like to have a huuuuuuuge, humungous, giant litterbox with low scalloped sides so we could pee outside the box without having to work so hard at it. Okay, we have peed outside the box before (that's why Jan keeps newspapers under the boxes) but this time we wouldn't have to try so hard - and we'd get away with it.)

And we canines would like to roll in the mud, then come inside and wipe it all off on the Jan's bed and the sofa. (A dog can dream.)

We tag Karen Jo of Kitty Limericks, Lacy Lulu and Archi Ann.

And Asta gave us the thinking blogger award.
=Jan's Funny Farm., who's deep cawing fow fellow animals always moves me.

Asta, thank you so much. We appreciate this. You also care deeply for fellow animals.

We passed this on before and we're getting as bad as Jan about not remembering who, what and when, so we'll wait.

We have met so many wonderful kitties and woofies and enjoy keeping up with their blogs. But we are finding it harder to do this because more of them are changing the templates and/or adding so many outside extras that the loading time has become prohibitive.

We're disappointed to see this becoming a trend among bloggers because not all readers have an ultra-fast Internet connection. Some of us have regular DSL and there are some who still have dial-up. Plus, we have heard from bloggers in other countries that they frequently have trouble with their service and just getting on the net can often be frustrating. So, those of us who are blessed with good service might want to be aware that not everyone shares those blessings.

We personally need to spend more time updating our links. We are way behind on that. So for those blogs we have been reading and commenting on for a while that are not listed on our links list, we want you to know we haven't forgotten you. We're getting to it.

We are glad to report that Bruno is doing well after his surgery to remove the tumor. You can read his update here.

The family of Mr. Hendrix the cat is grieving the loss of Sonny. His cancer was too far along. Even thought they are sad, they have some good news.

There news is still good about Tia, though she isn't home from the vet's yet. Perhaps tomorrow.


  1. Thank you for tagging me for the meme. I'll have to think about it some, but it should be up late tonight. I am glad there is good news about Bruno and Tia. I will resist putting up any more widgets on my blog. I think I only have one.

  2. #3 sounds like a whole lotta fun!

  3. We agree there seems to be many different kinds of internets and everyone seems to have their own issues..

    Yes Louie is home and doing well. We no longer have that quiet house that we had for one day. Louie always manages to keep things interesting..

  4. Driving sounds like fun. Yay, Bruno!

  5. Driving? Ummmmm, that's a thought! Sassy was 'driving' SS's car yesterday because Roscoe and I were sort of a bit under the influence of the MOMO wine.

    Thanks for your kind thoughts on Charlotte. We are all very distressed over her disappearance.

  6. Hey there guys!
    Sorry that our page isn't working! We'll try to make some changes on the weekend!!
    And we posted about Bruno's new diary entry! Thanks fur letting us know!
    Wags and licks,

  7. I sure like your first choice on the meme to drive the car, ha, ha, ha. If ya ever get the keys again please let me know so we can all head out together. Stop on over to my place I have an award for the Funny Farm, it is for all of ya over there cause ya are so neat and help so many.

  8. Congrats on the much deserved award; we thing you're great!

  9. Those are super wishes!
    We are not sure about the muddy smelly woofies, but if that's what they want, we're cool with it.

  10. Congratulations on your award!

    We are sorry that our blog takes a long time to load for you. We purposely changed out template to make it FASTER loading, and most people tell us that it is much faster. IE users seem to have a problem though, so, although our IE has no problems loading it, we will be looking at updating it again.

  11. Driving a car sounds fun, indeed! Congratulations on your award! I hope that my blog is a fast loading one for you because I have an award for all of you over there today!

    Purrrrrrrrs, Willow

  12. Congratulations on your award~!

  13. That's a great meme

  14. Hi Gang, That's an interesting 3 things meme. We appreciate the thought behind #2, but we try to use the garden instead of the litterbox as much as possible. As for #3, well that's really one for the dogs. Oh and we're not really keen on the car, even if we could drive it.

  15. Hi again, we forgot to say congratulations on your award - you really deserve it, 'cos there is a lot of thought put into all of your posts. We're also glad that there's good news about Bruno and Tia, particularly after Mr Hendrix's cousin Sonny went to the bridge.

  18. I always have to visit Dragonheart & Merlin in Firefox and we have cable. For some reason IE freezes when we try to visit them.

    I don't know if you have trouble with our blog. We have a lot of stuff on it. Mommy said she will check the next time she goes to Grandma's cause they have DSL. But IF you do have trouble with it Mommy said that you can subscribe to the blog and get it in email form without all the bells and whistles. Hope this info helps you.
