We would like to thank Chef for the following two awards. We're glad he thinks our blog is well-done. Jan thinks we're well-done too, but more along the lines of being left out in the sun too long.
We'd like to pass the premio on to Zoolatry for the beautiful graphics they share with the blogosphere.
It's been a rough week for them. Maggy & Zoey's human is currently on probation and under a warning to ship up or shape out (No, that is not a typo.) before her next purrformance appraisal. On top of that, their human has lost many of her jpg files in a computer meltdown. No, wait, the human had the meltdown. The computer sprung a photo leak, possibly from M & Z playing on the keyboard? (We ask because a certain nameless cat with the initial Crystal recently hit a key which politely asked Jan if all of certain files should be deleted. Jan was not nearly so polite when she responded.)
Seriously, Zoolatry, we hope you are able to rescue your photos. Although you have been joking about it, we know this is a serious loss to you.
And we're giving the Big Red Puffy Heart to Charlie, Chase, The Zoo and Willie.
Now, this one we know we earned -- Daisy May's Wacky Rosie Award, given to friends of Katie and Da Katz for attending their movin partee.
Ooooh, was that fun. Especially, since our ac went out that morning - the hottest day of the summer, at least so far. It was over 100 dripping tongue degrees in here all day. But our landlord saved the day. After work, he changed into his superhero costume, located a new unit and flew over here to install it. Too late, we were due at Da Katz's. But before we set to work, they let us fill their bathtub with ice water, where we could soak hot paw pads and cool down our bodies.
We're sorry about the drippy spots through the house. We didn't want to get the bath mat wet, so we shook ourselves damp in the master bedroom.
For any of you who haven't heard the story of the black Lab that is imprisoned at the shelter, falsely identified as killing a cat and biting the cat's owner while the dog was home sleeping, you can read about it here. As cats and dogs, it's scary to think someone could accuse one or two of us and we could be taken away from Jan without hope of bail or rescue, even though we were falsely identified. No one in authority who could and/or should help her will help her. Jan would be freaking out too. Any ideas to help this blogger?
Upate: Thanks to Deb and ML and .... we don't know who all was involved. But Cheyenne is home! We would guess an update will be posted on Leigh's blog but meanwhile a very brief update is posted on Cat Blogosphere.
PS - Yes, an update is posted on Leigh's blog, Thoughtprints. Go Leigh, and kick some butt there in Logan County, CO!
After reading our last post which included the story of the woman who sold her house to raise the $50,000 to clone her deceased dog, Whicky Wuudler sent us a link to a related news article. We googled the names and found this is a legitimate news story, so we're going to post a link. You have to read it to believe it, but Bernann McKinney, the woman who now has 5 puppies cloned from her beloved Booger, is suspected to be Joyce McKinney, a bail jumper accused of sexually assaulting and kidnapping a male Mormon missionary more than 30 years ago. Story here.
And while we understand a little more of why Booger was so special to her from reading this article, we still disapprove of men trying to play God and "create" animal life. Not a one of these puppies is or ever will be Booger!
