Thankful Thursday

Tom: We have been given a lovely award by our friend The Dutchess, and would like to say a big thank you!

The footwear is not exactly in line with my paws but the thought behind it is quite lovely: it is awarded to those who  seem to have a little bit of magic around them. We are supposed to pass it on to three magical friends, and making that selection is terribly hard as we believe all of our friends to be magical. Still, this time around, we will pass the award on to Addie and Lucie at Raising Addie, Goldie, Shade and Banshee over at Sumac Stories, and JB, Puddin' and Bear  at JB's Small world

We were also tagged by our friends Siena and Chilli for the 5th photo meme. We are pretty sure we did something similar in the past, but was it the 6th back then...? Anyway, here is what we found:

The picture is of IKKYU (the One-Who-Came-Beforest) sunning himself at our summer cottage in Prince Edward Island in the summer of 2004.

We did not want to leave you without any photos of us, so here is one taken earlier this month:


  1. Lovely award - you received it very rightfully!
    It is very nice seeing IKKYU, he seems to have been a very interesting mancat! That summer cottage sounds interesting too! Mom, why does everyone else have a summer cottage?!
    Purrs, Siena & Chilli

  2. Congratulations for thios beautifull award!

    ViVi & AB

  3. Congratulation on beautifull award, you deserve it completely!!!My mommy and I think that you are really magical. We always like sooo much to see your pics together. Tama-Chan should learn something about snuggling my Mico, than you,Tom, should learn me too:-)
    Love you a lot,

  4. You are both looking great and it's nice to also see a photo of IKKYU "he who came before". I have been having a lovely morning here, testing out the kittens bed while Mummy cleaned their "maternity ward". It really is the bestest bed in the house, well other than My Mummy's bed with her in it! ;)


  5. Cpngrats on your awardies!!
    It was wonderful to see a picture of Ikkyu, we would love to hear some memories your momma had when she feels like reminiscing :)

    hehe that last picture of you guys.. Tom you look very protective face over your little sisfur :))


  6. Tama-Chan,
    It looks like you are inspecting Tom's snout. Did it pass?

    Abby & Stygia

  7. Lucky Tom! He looks like he's about to get a kiss from you in that photo. I'm so jealous!

  8. What a beautiful award!!! Congrats on receiving it and thank you so much for thinking about us!!!! I would love to see the PM try to teeter around on that shoe!!! Quite a bit different than her good ol' birkenstocks! Hee hee!

    Gorgeous pic of IKKYU on the Island.

    You two are looking like a perfect pair!!!

    Purrs Goldie, Shade and Banshee

  9. Congratulations on your award! We remember the 6th photo thingy, too!

    We absolutely love the photo of Tom in the post below! Wow! It makes Mom want to get a woofie just like Tom! Except we don't have a ginormous field for a woofie to run in nearby.

  10. Congratulation on your award - I think Tama will look lovely wearing four of those shoes...just not on the tatami mats!

    Your pal,


  11. What a nice award, and you're right Tom, we don't think those shoes were made for you! the idea is very funny...Meowmy is snorting with laughter! It's lovely to see Ikkyu who went before..a very handsome mancat basking in lovely sunshine. PEI is very far away from where you live now...there must be an interesting story there. And Tom and Tama-chan that last picture of you two is as always sweet and wonderful

  12. Congrats on the award! As always the pictures make us smile.

  13. IKKYU is very handsome!
    That's a cute pic of you two, also!
    Mama just wants to pick you guys up and give you cuddles.

  14. Congrats on the award!! What a lovely sunspot from the past. The LL has always wanted to go to PEI.


  15. That is one very impractical looking shoe.

    An oriental rug does not look quite right unless a cat is resting on it (so I've been told).

    I wish I had a buddy like Tom.

  16. Khongrats on the furry khool award

    My mom is smirking at the shoe though!


  17. wow dat is pawtasic award!! omedeto~~~!!! you guys deserve it!!!

  18. Congrats on your cool award and thanks for passing to me!
    I like the pic of IKKYU. He was a very handsome mancat.
