A Passing, Awards, and more

A good friend of Ms. C's lost her friend Katie yesterday. She was two months away from her 16th birthday. Katie shared her home with two other doggie pups and three kitties, but she was unquestionably the Queen of the whole caboodle:

Katie was a dog with attitude and knew that her place was in the lap of her humans. One of her favorite things was when her mom had a job at a nursing home, where she adopted a woman resident's lap as her own. She and the resident would squabble joyfully all day. In return for nosing the woman's book out of her hand, she received a lot of pats and treats!
Here she is in that favorite spot (you can see how happy they all are!!) along with her mom Ms. A:

Katie had a great life, a great mom, but now she goes on free of pain. She will be missed.


Next, I'd like to thank the beautiful Grrreta and her family for honoring me with The Cool Cat Award! I am tickled pink! In fact, I am so excited I just have to go play herd of thundering elephants right away! *thunders*

I'm going to pass this award on to Adan and Lego, Parker, Sen-Chan, and the Cat Street Boyz! I think that's 9 cats in all. Thanks for making me and Ms. C smile every day!

Finally, I would like to share some cuddly pictures of myself. If one of my humans is napping on the couch, I love joining them there. I expect to make my nest in the safe, warm spot between their knees. I'll arrive smiling, and knead the cat-blankie softly before settling down. Here I am with Mr. R:

I hope you were not looking at my belly!

I also like to cuddle this fleecy scarf. I like to lay on it too, but sometimes I just want to put my paws on something nice like this, if Ms. C's foot is not available or I just feel like sleeping in my own chair.

You look comfy sleeping on your fleecy scarf.

We're sorry about Katie. She must have had a good life. She was certainly looked after and loved.
