Good News by Rusty

Hey, Rusty here.  I'm a bit excited, kinda like when I'm outside in my doghouse ... I mean, cathouse. Lots of good news.

First, congratulations to all the award winners from BlogPaws 2013.  And extra special congrats to Skeezix's Food Lady, the editor of Mousebreath ezine.  As you might already know, she won in two categories. Best Video and Best Cat Blog for Mousebreath.  You can read her short post on the subject here.

And you can watch Karen accept the award for Mousebreath here. She has a "crazy" sense of humor, so if you'd like to watch her award winning video, it begins approximately 17 minutes into the video.  The Mousebreath award acceptance begins at approximately 27 minutes.

We're very proud of Karen.  She ad-libbed her acceptance speech and remembered all the Funny Farmer Felines except Cyndi.  But she's forgiven. Whenever Jan lists our names, she has to think and count - and she lives with us.  In fact, she named us!  But if she can forget our names on occasion, so can Karen. the surprise was she remembered and mentioned us.

We were very pleased and surprised to receive the versatile blogger award from Daddy Kiril, Nikita and Elvira from the Opinionated Pussycat.  Pay no attention to Jan's name being listed as the sole recipient.  Jan asked and was told, "Tell the funny farmers the award is just as much theirs as yours!"  That's a relief.  We're the talent.  Jan just supplies the ... um, I'm not sure what she supplies.  Meals?

We're a bit short of time, so we'll have to do the 7 facts another time.  But we would like to pass this on to one Blog.

The Tabby Cat Club - This club was started by the lovely Gracie and her hu-mom.  The club is active and the members come up with some interesting ideas for events.

We're very proud to receive this award from Purrime Ministerettes Shiva and Jaya.  If you haven't read our Mousebreath interview with them, you're missing some fun.  Click on their name and you'll find a link to the interview in their post.  Or click here and find a link in our post.  However you get there, you won't regret it.
