Thankful Thursday

Da Beebs: Meee-Yaow, Everyone! The Beebster here with some heavy duty thanking on the agenda! You see, we have received two awards recently, and we need to follow the proper protocol.

Firstly, we Chans received an award called "Bring On The Nip" from Hisia, Genji's little cousin who lives in the south of France:

We are supposed to tell you about something we wish to celebrate. That's pretty simple. We celebrate all of you, our blogging friends, whose joys and tears we share on a daily basis. You have enriched out lives, and we look forward to continuing to share your adventures for many more years.

We are also supposed to pass the award on to between one and twelve other blogs. We have no idea who has already had this one, so forgive us if we are giving you something you've already got. We pass the award on to all the kitties at Mickey's Musings and Team Tabby (they're cousins!), Prancer Pie and Twinkletoe tails, Critters at The Cottage and Cory Cat Blog! That's a LOT of kitties!

We also received the Dragon's Loyalty Arard from The Swiss Cats, Loupi and Zorro.

Now, once again, there are rules and requirements and we are finding it a little much to be asked to nominate 15 other blogs, so we will just nominate a few. Let's start with the boys over at Meezer Tails, and also Flynn, Derby and Ducky, Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy over at Purrfect Haven, and the huge crowd including newcomer "Nekkid Seppo" over at Pikku Punapippuri!

And that is not all! We are also supposed to tell you seven interesting facts about ourselves.

1- We are all closely related, except for Genji.

2- Tama has not yet forgiven Da Beebs for not leaving home when he was weaned...

3- Sei-Chan is a terrible scaredy cat.

4- I, Da Beebs, talk more than everyone else combined

5- Genji has a tiny squeaky voice, and specialises in the silent miaow

6- Mama Tama and I love all the same foods

7- Genji and I make loud proclamations before using the litterbox

Phew. That was a lot of work. I think I need a nap.

Tom: I have something to be thankful for as well! A couple of days ago, as I mentioned, I had the best time going logging in the woods with Orgueil, Vidock's Daddy. You should have seen the sludge!!!

I am not too sure just how thankful I was for the bath that followed our return home, although the water in the tub was deliciously warm!

#1 actually used a shampoo called "Dirty Beastie"!!!

She said I smelled just wonderful afterwards!


  1. ConCATulations to the awards !
    It was fun to get to know 7 new things about you :)
    Tom , I think it was good that #1 had the proper schampoo to clean you up after the visit to the woods :)
    Happy Thursday to you all !

  2. Dirty Beastie. THAT was funny Tommy it was great to know so many new things about you guys.

  3. TOMMY! How in the WORLD did you get THAT dirty??? My GOODNESS!

  4. You look so happy Tommy - is it because you know #1 will give you a warm bath? We're glad the "after" perfume was nicer than the "before" one.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  9. Concatulations on your awards! Tommy, when I saw how muddy you were, I knew just what was coming!

  10. On est pareil Genji. Moi aussi je miaule silencieusement, ou presque. Ca agace un peu Nat à Chat parce que la chatière n'est toujours pas installée, et souvent on ne m'entends pas quand je miaule à la porte pour rentrer.
    Faut vraiment être un chien pour se mettre dans l'état de Tommy ! Nous les chats jamais on ferait un truc pareil !
    Plein de ronrons.

  11. Congrats on your awards and giving one to us! WooHoo!
    We giggled at Tommy's shampoo "Dirty Beastie" heehee

  12. We love to hear all of the little things about you.
    Few things are as totally adorable as those precious, silent meows. Love 'em!

  13. Congrats on your awards, very nice ones. And Tommy, Lightning would love to feel that sludge between his toes, but he would not be very happy with a bath.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  14. We love learning more about our friends when they win awards. Tommy that shampoo could not be more appropriate for you, but you sure looked happy being all muddy.

    Millie & Walter
