7 Things About Us

We received an award from Freckles and Deb. If you haven't met them yet, Freckles is an adventurous rabbit and Deb is her human.

Thank you, Freckles and Deb.

Now, we are supposed to tell 7 things about ourselves and then share the award with 7 of our friends.

1. We are not really related. Not by blood. Bet you never would have guessed..

2. We live in a mansion in Beverly Hills. Well, in our dreams. Actually, we live in a small mill house.

3. On Twitter we're (surprise!) @jansfunnyfarm from Georgia. Recently we met @gafunnyfarm. They have a cat outdoor enclosure for exercise and fresh air. Jan said we cats will have to get a job if we want an outdoor enclosure. Nobody will hire us. Anyone interested in a slightly -- okay, well-used cat pan? We don't mind parting with one. We'll even throw in a free shredded cat stuffie. (We didn't shred it. The dogs did.)

4. We dogs are learning quite a bit about photography. On our morning walks lately Jan has been taking photographs of a mill building being torn down. We snoopervise. You know -- Stand on the cement block to get a better view. Stick your camera lens through the chain link fence for an unobstructed view. Put a longer leash on little Merci before you strangle her when you hold the camera up.

5. Buddy is our official telephone call announcer. When the phone rings, he howls. And just in case Jan can't hear Buddy, Merci chimes in with her soprano rendition of "Hurry up, answer the phone and shut Buddy up!"

6. It's chilly and rainy today. Buddy hates the rain and the cold. We've tried to convince him to let Jan put a sweater on him but he won't wear one. He just likes to complain. Buddy would make a good human. The rest of us never complain. Well, rarely. Okay, frequently. Are you happy now, Buddy?

7. We have a live-in chauffeur, maid, cook named Jan. We are all going to be writing her annual performance review this month. She said she's not sure she wants to read it but the suspense is actually getting to her.

We would like to pass this award on to these blogs. They all make us smile, sometimes downright roll over with laughter.

1. Khyra
2. Zoolatry Be sure to pick up a performance review to fill out on your human this month. And let Zoolatry know when you've posted it.
3. Army of Four
4. Charlie & Molly Daniels
5. Martha & Bailey Bassett
6. Marvin the Hollow Hound
7. Sammy, Miles & Billy

  2. Woo just want more dirt on me...



  3. We enjoyed reading those facts about you! We especially found interesting the bit about taking a picture though a chain link fence.

  4. We are sure Jan will get a pawsome review. ~S,S,C & F

  10. Congratulations on the wonderful award...I really liked the call announcer!!!

  11. Concats on your awards. When the Beans were in Mericky they saw lots of the mansions in Beverley Hills and one had the complete garden done out to look like a graveyard for Halloween. They said it looked really spooky.

  12. Congratulations on the award. It is always fun to learn more about our friends.

  13. Oh, that was fun to read. We enjoyed it! Congrats on the award!

    Purrs and hugs,

    Tail wags,

  15. I always love looking at your picture on the top and going through all of you one by one - now I know some more little tidbits!

    lickies from Charlie's DogBlog

  16. Those were juicy tidbits!

    P.S., I almost forgot about the annual review...I'd better get cracking.

  17. Congrats on your award! Loved the list of things about you...especially the photography one. Mom can't help but giggle when she thinks about Merci being 'strangled' when Jan puts up the camera! =P


  18. Congratulations on your Award!
    And thanks for telling us all those things about you!
    # 7... sounds familiar to me!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. Hey all of you,
    Wow that was some very interesting stuff I learned about you guys.
    All you cats--do any of you feel medically inclined. I understand from listening to Pellie and some of her nurse type friends that there is something called a Cat-scan that people need. I don't know how much it pays or even if any of you would be able to do that, but it might be a good job. Maybe you should check it out!!!!
    I will pass on all those good tips from the dogs about photography to Sir Knight; he is the man behind all the pictures around here. well unless you want a pic or two of Pellies thumb or fingers - she can not master the art of taking a pic without it having one of her digits in it. Sir Knight says she is photo challenged.
    What is this annual review thing - is this something I should be doing with Pellie & Sir Knight?


  20. Thank you so much for the kind award you have given me!

    I will post about it soon, my Jeannie has been really very poorly with a bad cold, and not felt up to blogging, or looking at a computer screen.

    However, your kind award really cheered her up!

    lotsaluv and many licks, your friend, Marvin xxxxxxxxx oh and Jeannie Who Is Not Well! But getting better!

  21. Congrats on the award! And it was great learning more about you! (What do you mean you're not related? - Ha! ha!) That story about the phone ringing made me giggle...
