Clear Evidence . . . and Awards!

Stygia: First of all, we'd like to thank our friends at The Poupounette and Ramses Meowings for our first award of the new year! How beautiful it is to have friends. We love making new friends, and sometimes friends are lost for one reason or another, but friends are always in the heart!

We are going to pass this award on to Niko and Cloud of Cats in Maryland and to Whicky Whuddler and his family at Everycat. By the way, Ms. C is ashamed to admit that when she tried to remodel the blog, she lost track of last year's awards. She is still hoping at some point she can discover a way to resurrect them, but if not we shall start afresh with the friends award!

And now I have something far more serious to report. You can see that I am very serious, yes?

She . . . I mean Abby Normal, has finally been captured wet-pawed doing that thing she thinks she is doing secretly!!! She does it in her water-bowl, and now she has even started doing it in Ms. C's water-cup, as you can see here! In case you cannot tell what she is doing, she dips her paw repeatedly in her bowl or the glass and licks it off. I just can't understand this behavior, so I can understand why she wanted to keep it a secret, and why she stops when she thinks Ms. C or anyone else is looking. But now we have PROOF.

Nevertheless, we still love her even if she is a sneaky little adolescent type of girl, because she is just so cute. And I appreciate that she bathes my head and ears for me. I have only just started giving her a tentative lick from time to time. Maybe when she calms down a bit in a year or so, I will be able to return the favor.

At least we can calmly share the couch together. We like it that our humans cover it with all kinds of comfy blankets for us to snuggle around.

That's a funny way to drink water, Abby...and that tummy is snorgle-worthy!

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

That is a seriously panther-like shot of you, Stygia! And a seriously cute on of Abby too!

I must try these water games. They sound like fun!

Abby, don't bother, we both do that water thing, too! Concats on the award!

Oh your blankies look so cozy!!!

Niko and Cloud said...

What a nice award, and thank you for passing it on to us! We will post it tonight or tomorrow on our bloggy!
Cloud likes to dunk her toys, and ever her FOOD in her water bowl, and also leave toys in her food bowl, as you will see on the blog soon.
Mom got a package in the mail yesterday. We don't read well, but it said something about a "Viziters Guide" and had a picture of mountains on it. Hmm, wonder what that was about.

Ramses said...

Abby has some strange habits and some lovely belly fluff! ;)


PS: Glad you liked the award! :)

Congratulations on the award and thank you so much for passing it on to us. Friends are wonderful. That's very sad about the shelter closing. As for the water - Abby this is most excellent cat behaviour and the humans must be grateful that you entertain them so well. Our Mum adores that picture of you on your back on the cushion - yes she wants to snorgle the screen. It's lovely that you both share the sofa together.
