A Stylish Award!!

We have been given an award by the wonderful and beautiful Miss Kitty over at A Cat's Golden Years. Miss Kitty has the most wonderful blog. It tells of Miss Kitty's golden years and my Mocha can relate. :) The kitties here always enjoy making new blogging friends. :) Please swing by and give Miss Kitty some kitty hugs and checkout the most beautiful golden eyes! We all want to give a big hugs and a huge thank you for awarding us this fabulous and stylish award!!

Now the Stylish Blogger Award asks the receiver to share seven things with my followers, seven things they may not be aware of. I am going to do a couple of these for each of the kitties. :)

First we will present Mr. Quincy.

1. When I first saw Quincy he was 4 months old and it was at a cat show. He was a show kitten and I fell in love with him at first sight. His show name was "Red Fred" but I didn't bring him home until a week later and drove three hours away to get him because I couldn't stop thinking about him. :)

2. Quincy was born on St. Patricks Day! He is the perfect little red head indeed!

Miss Mocha:

1. I bought Miss Mocha in Costa Mesa, California 15 years ago. I bought her at Petsmart during their adoption day. I had intended to purchase this adorable tabby kitten since the last tabby I had stayed with my ex husband after our divorce. :( Fortunately, a store attendant brought me this screaming ball of fur and fleas and begged me to take her because no one wanted her. You know me, being a soft heart and all..I succumbed to her blue eyes and screaming cries. Lol!

2. Mocha has had her battles with IBD. She is the strongest kitty I know as far as resilience and determination. A few times we thought we were going to lose her but she always bounces back! She has the strongest zest for life of any cat I know. :)

Last but not least, Miss Emma:

1. Little Miss Emma has a strange injury on her right back leg. When she was very young, only about 6 months old, she jumped off an outside chair that had a cushion on it and the cushion caught on her nail. She twisted her poor little foot and it has healed funny ever since. Now her leg bends both directions! Oh and she loves sleeping. :) Mommy is going to have to get Emma to start exercising a little though. ;)

2. Emma eats too much but she has the sweetest demeanor. She is never too feisty, always very sweet. She cleans Mr. Quincy ever chance she gets because she doesn't think he cleans himself all that well.

The last question I will leave to me. Something you may not know about me. Hmmm....besides looking at home decorating and crafting blogs, I adore fashion style blogs. I love fashion and makeup and all things girly!

Congratulations on the Stylish Award Michelle! What is it with kitters and sinks? Your little ones are very sweet looking. Unfortunately their fur doesn't like me. Allergies! But I can still love from afar. Very cute little angels!

dear Michele,

I am sorry I came so late. I have been painting these two days, finally after more than a year. Right now I am signed in on my account and not Miss Kitty van Dyck.

I enjoyed reading about your cats and was not aware that you had more than one.

People like us who take in strays and less fortunate I think are blessed as these beautiful felines return the love without end.

Wisihing you all the very best,
Miss Kitty and Egmont

your fur babies are the sweetest...I never tire of seeing photos of them or hearing you talk about them. I didn't realize Mocha is that old! She sure is a fighter. ox
