Since there are four of us and we are supposed to write about 10 things, this could be endless, so we’ll try to make it as short as possible by dividing up into categories.
Cuddles: Tommy loves to curl up next to #1 and Yuu-Chan loves to curl up ON #1. Tama-Chan only cuddles with Tommy and Uncle U, and Sei-Chan likes to be cuddled when she is asleep or half asleep.
Human Food: Tom is a real gentlemen and never bothers people when they are eating. We kitties sometimes gang up on #1 when she is having her meal, demanding our fair share (we get fed on the table, otherwise Tommy would eat our food). Yuu-Chan is the biggest pest at the moment, but he will probably grow out of it, as Sei-Chan did.
Our Food: Tom likes everything. Tama-Chan loves yoghurt, and soft cheese, raw chicken breast, and a little ham, and “Luvs” in addition to paté type cat food. Sei-Chan is more a fan of dry food but also loves ham. Yuu-Chan is a major carnivore and will throw himself on anything raw and gobble it up.
Play: Tom adores his Frisbee and tennis balls, and also sticks of wood that he either fetches or munches on. Tama-Chan is not much into playing at the moment. She loves to be out in the cat run, though. Sei-Chan and Yuu-Chan love to play with one another, lots of games of THoE and wrestling, but also anything dangly.
Sleeping arrangements: Tom sleeps on a dog bed right up against #1’s bed. Tama-Chan generally makes her own arrangements and does not reveal them to anyone. Sei-Chan often sleeps ON #1’s bed and Yuu-chan IN #1’s bed, but sometimes neither is to be seen all night.
The Cat flap into the run: Tama-Chan is basically refusing to learn how to use it. In line with her Princess status, she expects the flap to be opened for her. Sei-Chan and Yuu-Chan have figured things out.
The idea is to honour five of our friends and ask them to pass it on to five of theirs, and so on and so forth... We would like to pass it on to the following
Our woofie friend Hero who, with his buddy Tagpi and his family, will be facing a big move from the Azores to the East Coast of the United States at the end of this year.
Our kitty friends Megat, Bujang, Akira, Totoro and Tanaka, collectively known as The Amigos, over at Cat Tales. They live in Singapore with their person, San. Megat has just gone into remission after a severe bout of lymphoma, and we think it's a good enough reason to celebrate!
Our wonderful lady cat friends Siena and Chilli whose every post fills us with delight!
The gang over at The Furry Kids (one woofie and two kitties) who always make us laugh with their antics.
All the gang over at Cory's blog (Lots of kitties and one big woofie!). We love all of your stories, not forgetting you, Grete!
We would like to say that we think ALL of our friends are a true blessing, and the above is just a small selection. We have a feeling that this award is going to be circulating quickly and that no one will be left out!
Happy Friday everyone! And Happy Shopping to our American friends!
