Thinking Blogger Award

Wowie, my superduper friend Jeter (and maybe fyooture bruther-in-law) has awarded me the Thinking Blogger Award:

I'm excited, touched and humbled all at the same time -- aw, shucks, that was so nice, Jeter! Thankie so much. We Ballicai are happy and proud. And tell Mick that Marilyn is purring extra-loud.

So now we've gotta give the award to five blogs that make us think. That's gonna be hard 'cause everykitty we've met on the bloggiesphere has such a nice blog.

Here are the rules for the Thinking Blogger award:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

Okeydokey, here's the bloggies we're gonna give the Thinking Blogger Award to:

1. Phoebe and Monica, who blog over at Pablo Fan Club. Whee, they're such bee-yootiful girlkitties. They make me think in lots of ways 'cause when I see their pictures I think about how I could look at 'em all day. Hubba hubba. And they're furry, furry intelligent, too.

2. Everykitty and Megan over at Bad Kitty Cats. They have a great blog, and one of the Bad Kitty Cats, TeaCup, could be my twin. He's sick right now, so everybodies please go over to the Bad Kitty Cat bloggie and let him know you're purrin' for him.

3. Faz the Cat. I like Faz. She's a coolcat, furry purr-etty and furry adventurous. We Ballicai like lookin' at the pictures on her bloggie -- she has pictures of pretty places and funny things like duckies and horsies and critters we've never seen.

4. Grr, Midnight & Cocoa. They're great kitties, lots of fun, and they post cool pictures on their bloggie.

5. Zippy, Sadie and Speedy who blog at Kattonic Cats. They're warm and funny, and their posts make us think and make us smile.

And here's pictures of all us Ballicai lookin', well, thoughtful, and Marilyn MonREOW has a message after her picture for her special mancat, Mickey Mantle, who is Jeter's big bruther.

Chairman Mao: I'm thinkin' about stinky goodness, turkey flavor.

Brainball, our big Alpha Cat and Fearless Leader, who's thinkin' about when next to patrol our perimeter.

Dorydoo, my dances-on-air sister, who's workin' on inventing an anti-gravity machine

Marilyn MonREOW, who's thinkin' about, who else, Mickey Mantle, and writes to him here:

My dearest Mickey,

My dreams are all of you, and every waking moment, your handsome image is first and foremost in my mind. My heart is with yours, my darling. Here is a poem by Emily Dickinson which speaks to what I feel:

My river runs to thee.
Blue sea, wilt thou welcome me?
My river awaits reply.
Oh! sea, look graciously.

I'll fetch thee brooks
from spotted nooks.
Say, sea,
Take me!


Your loving Marilyn


(Chairman Mao sez: hehehehe, I can hear my buddy Jeter sayin' "Duhr.")


Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

Hi Your Beautiful Kitty Cats. Oh Thank you - we are indeed humbled. We our humans brain starts thinking again, we promise we will pass this along. She is pretty frazzled but we will give her Kitty Treats and she will feel better.

Thank you very very much for the Purrs and Prayers for TeaCup. He isn't doing anything but sleeping and getting all the attention from the Humans. Even the Bad Kittens Five are not as popular today.

Sending Much Love and Purrs to you all.

Luv, Zed Monster
Spokesman for Bad Kitty Cats

Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

Hi Us Again... I Zed Monster do not practice typing often. We were meaning to say WHEN our humans brain starts thinking not We... I think we may have caught the Frazzles with the Human...

Purrs Purrs

Very good choices, Chairman Mao. I liked seeing your pictures and what you all are thinking.

The romance between Marilyn MonREOW and Mickey is very sweet.

Dearest Marilyn,

Mr. Hendrix said...

What pretty pictures! Marilyn and Mickey sure have it bad for each other don't they?? It's cute though...

MaoMao said...

Thanks so much, everykitty! Purrs and hugs all around.

Bad Kitty Cats and Megan, I'm soooo relieved to hear that TeaCup seems to be doin' better. We've been purrin' and purrin' and purrin', and we'll keep purrin' for him.

Oh, here comes Marilyn, bumpin' me off the blog to talk to Mickey:

Dearest Mickey,

Thank you, my heart, and if only you could hear how loud I am purring.

"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul." ~ Judy Garland

Chairman Mao, thank you so much for the thinking blogger award. I'm blushing at your reason for nominating us... What a nice compliment to give us. We will have to think and think about what we can post.

MaoMao said...

You're welcome, Monica and Phoebe! You kittygirlz are just so purr-etty. And smart, too. Sometimes I think real hard about which one of you's the purr-ettiest, but I just can't decide. Hubba hubba!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!
