An Award!

Last week, we received the Liebster Award from Kitty Tales!  We are so very thankful and honored that they thought we deserved this award!  Thank you so much! :)

The Liebster Award is an award given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers by other bloggers.

The rules:

Link to the blogger who gave you the award.  Answer 11 questions posted by your nominator.  Post 11 questions to your nominees.  Post 11 random facts about yourself.  Nominate 11 blogs for the award.

11 Facts:


1. I often lay on the back of mommy's computer chair while she's at the computer, and when she gets up to go do something, I steal her seat.

2. I give hugs; I put my paws on either side of my mommy's head and snuggle against her shoulder.

3. I use mommy's office chair as a scratching post.


4. I wake up mommy by walking on her and meowing until she pets me.

5. I start begging for my yummy wet noms two hours early everyday!  Sometimes, I get mommy to feed me a little early.

6. I talk more than Milita does.


7. I have become very picky about what I eat.

8. My favorite spots are the fleece blankie on the couch and by the heater.

9. If you give me a french fry, I will eat it, but give me a second french fry, and I will turn my nose up at it.


10. My sister and I have the same birthday (three years apart) - which is in a couple of weeks. :)

11. I love to read; some of my favorite authors and series are: Jodi Picoult, The Cat Who... series, and the Harry Potter series.

11 Questions Given to Me

1. What made you want to be a writer?
This is actually a complicated one.  I always wanted to help people, so I got my BA in Psychology and went on to study Social Work in grad school.  During my Master's program, though, I developed severe chronic pain.  I was no longer able to hold down a "traditional" job, and I remembered my mom remarking that I was a good writer.  So, I looked up some websites where I could begin to sell my work, and the rest is history. :)  I've developed my skills quite a bit in the past six years, and I'm so thankful for the opportunities I've been given thus far.

2. What is your all time favorite type of food?
I love Italian!

3. When did you have your first pet?
I got my first real pet when I was in middle school.  We had a chocolate Cocker Spaniel named Hershey.

4. What is the one most important thing you can/have learn/ed from an animal?
Unconditional love.  I never knew what that felt like until I got Milita and Carmine.

5. Cat or dogs?  Why?
Cats because they are so incredibly loving.  They have such unique personalities.  They are intelligent.  I love everything about them! :)

6. What is your favorite movie?
I loved Titanic.  I was just thinking about watching it again the other day.

7. What was/is your favorite subject in school?

8. Would you rather ski down an icy slope or sit in the lodge by the fire and read a good book?
Sit by the fire and read - mainly because with my vision, I think I'd run into someone or something and hurt myself (or them).  Besides, I love to read.

9. What was your nickname as a kid?
This is embarrassing...Pee Wee. LOL.

10. What is your "pet" peve?
Inconsiderate individuals.

11. If you could teach the world anything, what would it be?
How to love and value one another as well as all of the animals on this earth.  Everyone (human and animal) is precious.
