Well, it seems, Morris the cat,
snuck into my house, (now how he did this is totally beyond me) and put in my stocking hung with care on my fireplace mantle, another award. I found it tonight, as I thought my stocking looked a little strange….lumpy where it had not been before.
Now, this Morris dude, knew I already received the Sunshine Award, so he had to come up with a plan to make HIS award better then my other Sunshine Award. Now, believe me when I tell you all, how astonished I am that this cat, came into my house unnoticed by my cats. This is absolutely totally beyond my understanding. Morris, just HOW did you manage this?
You talk about smart? This cat MUST know how to teleport! He must! How else did he get into my house, especially by my Cuddles aka Mr. Security? And to deliver my award, silent as a whisper, then scamper right out? Amazing. Just amazing!
So, Morris the Cat, awarded me with the Sunshine Award. Wow! I am so touched that a third person has given me the Sunshine Award.
What an honor it is for me to know that I am bringing Sunshine to you with what I post on Petals Unfolding. Morris, you really made my day!
Morris the Cat’s blog can be found at
at a very cool site called Paws For Thought. The name itself is very ingenious. I highly recommend all of you to check Morris out. You I think, will fall in love with this guy.
Now, I really don’t follow these rules due to my “busy” life, but on this announcement, seeing as I have had so many awards lately, I will tell you a little about me.
I wear my pearls with my jeans on days that I don’t do anything special, just an ordinary day.
I cry every time I hear the line “I see you” in Avatar.
I hold my breath when I watch figure ice skating.
I love all things that sparkle, not necessarily expensive, but I wouldn’t say no to those.
I take care of “special cats” who over about a period of 10 years, began showing up here at our house. Starving, dying, frozen, ill, abused, hurt……..one by one, and actually at one time three showed up (dear God! How did I do it?) and I worked around the clock to bring them back to health. Many times the Vets told me to put these cats down, but something in me just wouldn’t quit. My husband and I studied Homeopathy and acupressure and herbs just to keep these cats alive. The research on nutrition and supplements was non-ending. I was taught by “Spirit” how to adjust necks, tails, legs, spines, hips, and joints.
Years passed, and with a lot of hard work, have managed not only to bring these cats to a semblance of wellness and happiness, but they have become family. I care for a total of 14 in my home, and outside, 3-5, depending on who is here. One of the cats outside is deaf, another has hip problems, a third something going on with his eye and neck. I do my best every day to bring them also wellness. Above all these guys are loved, truly LOVED. And they know it.
I love all things Art. I love books, I love to paint, I love to create with my hands making my own body soaps, whipped creme body butters; crochet work, knitting, gardening (yes all the flowers that are on Petals Unfolding are mine).
I love to think of ways to do things better, and I invent ways to improve something. An example of this is…..all pills that I must give my cats, I crush, or if small enough leave as is, and put the medicine in gel caps. From there I coat the gel caps with butter for easy swallowing. I gently open my cats’ mouths and put the gel cap way back in their throat, and it just slides right on down. No gagging. No frothing. No fighting. I actually got bit once, and from that moment on, I thought and thought how to improve giving a cat a pill. I came up with this idea. (Cats, ears up. Tell your humans about this, cause it really does work!)
Let me see, what else…..
I love contrasts. I use to wear leather and lace but now that I have gracefully “aged” I work with color. I combine colors that are usually not the norm
Speaking of color, I Love color. Bright colors.
I love wearing cotton and sneakers. And I love jeans.
I love the smell of fresh air.
I love SUNSHINE. 🙂
I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I do eat ice cream though. Speaking of ice, I love ice skating.
I love music and I love dance. I also love to sing.
Have I left anything out? Hmmmm……I love to travel, but that has been more or less nixxed due to my life with my cats and my back, that I injured 20 years ago. Nope, travel not in my plans. Now, IF I owned my own private jet, perhaps then it would be possible.
Yes, I dream big.
I Love to talk. Although lately I have become quite quiet. This is the most I have talked in a long time.
Last one. I love everything Nature. I love to explore. I love to feel the sense of awe when I see the wonder and beauty of Mother Nature.
Oops. Now this is really the last one. I Love to have FUN and to laugh. The end. Not really. There is still lots about me that you don’t know yet. 🙂
In closing, I am deeply touched that all these really cool cats and peoples too, think highly enough of me to give me awards. I bow to each one of you, especially to you, MORRIS. You remind me so much of my Doodles. Do you talk too, like my Doodes Man?
