Super Saturday!

I'm honored! Our great friend Storm awarded me -- Brainball -- the I Love Your Blog Award. Thank you so much, Storm! We will display it proudly on our blog.

MaoMao, Dorydoo and I would like to pass the I Love Your Blog Award to:

MaoMao's Sweet Ariel
My Lovely Patches Lady
Handsome Earl Grey
Kind and Gracious Miss Peach
Our Friend, Sister, and Cousin Gretchen


Well, it was a week ago that I got so sick, and in that time, I've gotten much better. I even wrestled with Mao last night!

Medications are a trial, though -- and I still have a week of them left (harrrumph!) -- but I know Mom and Dad will get them in me. They love me and want me to keep getting better, but ugh, those pills taste awful. But by golly, I'll hang in there, like the tough Mancat I am.

Here I am, resting with my sweet little sister, Dorydoo.


After a round of medications, I teleported over to the Piney Woods to visit my Patches Lady! We had a great time together, and I met her sisters, who are very nice. She lives in a beautiful place, and she showed me around. We even saw two vishus deer! If they had shown inclination to be a problem, I would have protected my beautiful Lady, but they stayed at a safe distance.

My Lady and I shared the sweetest nose kiss. Here's a picture her Mom made:


And more exciting news -- my sister Marilyn received a fabulous prize package from Henry and Clyde for winning their 100th Post Contest, and she shared the goodies with us -- among them was a catnip bananer! Pictures are on Marilyn's blog.


And yet more great news! MaoMao was just awarded the Sweet Award from our wonderful friend Adan! Thank you so much, buddy!

We're going to pass it on to Henry and Clyde Helton, because not only are they two of the sweetest fellows around, they are wonderful friends.

Thanks to MaoMao for letting me blog again today! Mao will be back tomorrow. And don't forget Dorydoo's birthday coming up on the 16th!

Brainball, Oh, thank you for the I Love Blog Award.

I'm so tickled you are doing so well. I love the nose kisses picture of you and Lady Patches. I be you weren't scared one bit of those vicious deer.

I got a Sweet Award from Adan, too. I'm getting ready to post my 99th post.

Big, warm fuzzy hugs, to you and all the gang...G

Congratulations on your awards. I am so happy that Brainball is feeling well enough to wrestle Mao and go visit Patches. The nose kiss picture is sweet.

Thank you so much for your kind wishes and purrs. A Ballicus blanket was exactly what I needed to feel better. All the purrs seem to be working. My sister-in-law is improving and may be discharged and be able to come home Tuesday.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh Brainball you are such a sweet mancat to give me an I LOVE YOUR BLOG awardie! I am just humbled beyond words really I am. Mommy has promised to put all my LOVE on my bloggy this weekend even if she is really busy with a box full of clothes. I don't know what she is doing yet but I don't think I like it much. So I am going to give her a hard time and NOT come down off the fridge box at all!
Guess what, I had a wonderful walk in the garden with sweet Mickey the panther! I brought me flowers from his:)
oh I am so happy....
Love Peach who conCATulates you on your award also!

Me and mom have been visiting the blogs of our friends. Mom's still very sad about our old blog and all the lost memories.As some of the photos she posted on the other blog she no longer has.I've long since forgiven her yet she still get's misty eyed.Somehow the new blog just isn't the same,mom liked to go back in the archives and read old posts.She even thought about giving up blogging yet I told her I'd miss
all my friends especially you.If you can please teleport over for a snuggle...Love and Many Kissies Your Ariel
