Now that the weather has unmuggified itself, and San Francisco's natural air conditioning has been turned back on, I can once again bask in the glory of mid- morning sunpuddles. I am really enjoying my comfortable meditation on what's right in Spitty's feline world: Pinkie has gone missing, the Human has been generous with the Gerber's, the hated Dodgers lost the NLCS, and I feel a nap coming on right . . . . . now.
Well, Day 3 of my mistreatment at the hands of an indifferent Human has come and gone. I have been given assurances that as of tomorrow, regular activities will resume-- brushie times, play times, blog-visiting times. But we've all been suckered in by our oh-so-repentant Humans before, have we not, Kitties? And yet, and yet...she sounds so sincere. I don't know what to think. But it never hurts for a boy to be at his cleanest, does it? Just in case.
Over the past several months, we have received some awards from our dear furiends, and then we got ridiculously behind on posting them. We saw another kitty who made a collage and so, in the belief that late is better than never ::glares at Human::, we decided it was high time we followed suit. So without further ado, we say a heartfelt Thank You to
1Swami Zoe who sent us the Opposites Attract a couple of weeks ago. I was totally godsmacked that such a beauteous girl gave me this. XOXOXO
2 My buddy Nerissa who gave me the Why I Love Thee award (way back in February--how embarrassing!), which I hasten to say was not to indicate he loved me, but rather to suggest I explain why I love my Human. Hmmm. I still have to think on that some more!
3 The fabulous Prancer Pie who passed along the Illuminating Blogger Award, and I think there were rules! The one I will follow is to thank him profusely (and Princeton and Precious too, cause I know Sweet Precious had something to do with it, right??)
4 The Femme Fatales Nellie and Star, who sent me the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, to which I say, "I'll be on your team anytime, my darlings!"
5Nerissa again, who also shared the Purrime Ministerette of Planet Purrth Award, which had such complex rules we was all flummoxed. We think it's probably 'cause we don't have Prime Minister here, only a President and since I am the King I don't pay much attention to such things. But I think this has something to do with a couple of kitties who are Purrime Ministerettes of the Whole Planet Purrth, and to tell you the truth, I'm kinda scared to find out too much about them because maybe they might not let me be King anymore?
6Nerissa (again!) AND my Lovely Queen Katie Isabella who sent me the My Favorite Things Award. The rules say I should list six favorite things but I know two for sure: Katie Isabella & Nerissa!
7 All the fantastic kitties from Cat on my Head (especially the LadyCats) who gave me this wonderful Dragon Loyalty Award. It is a mighty badge that I display with Feline Pride and gratitude to my furiends at Cat on my Head!
8Guess Who? Yep, Nerissa once again for the Best Moment Award.
The rules say that I'm supposed to write an acceptance speech, so I will say I am grateful every day for my furiends in the blogworld: kitties, Humans, and otherwise (Hi, woofies and goaties!) The Human & I love reading your blogs and having you read ours. And that's a really short speech but this post is about the longest one we ever made and we don't want you to fall asleep!
Thanks to efurryone -- You are all The Best Pals a Kitty could have!
I, Jane the Woofie, do swear that I will well and truly serve our Sovereign King, Spitty I, in the office of Viceroy of Cole Valley, and I will do right to all manner of Felines after the laws and usages of this realm, without fear or favor, affection or illwill. So help me Ceiling Cat.
Guess what, Kitties? My final Viceroy appointment will fall into place this weekend with the arrival of Jane the Pooch at her home in Cole Valley (the mysterious * on the Official Viceroy Map). Now, Kitties, I have anticipated your concerns and objections. I am sending the Human to meet Jane in person and administer the Loyalty Oath which will be required of her as a Woofie in service of the King. A full report will be filed and (finally!) a badge will be made available to all Viceroys in Good Standing. Right after I join up with the Cat Scouts, of course. First things first.
And I don't feel like moving right now. Sorry we've been a bit scarce--it has been miserably hot (well, by my standards anyway--it was 86° today and that's about 20 degrees warmer than I approve of). The Human went out gallivanting today and came home crabby, so frankly we're not much happier today than we were yesterday. Tomorrow, maybe?
It's hot. It's muggy. There are wildfires in surrounding counties making the air miserable and smoky. I am still having furball tummy troubles. I would like to take a nice long nap and forget all my woes. What'dya think? Sound good? The Human's feeling kind ofcranky. I think she needs a nap, too. So we're quite the pair today.
