Special Blog Announcement!
As I’m sure you already know, I’m an incredibly special cat. And for the first time in the history of my blog, SOMEONE HAS ACKNOWLEDGED IT! With gratitude to Playful Kitty, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been award the Dragon’s Loyalty Award.
1. Display the Award Certificate on your website.
I don’t know how to do this because I have paws. My humans ask your help?
2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award.
3. Present 15 or so awards to deserving bloggers:
There are a number of bloggers whose posts I read with feline fervor. Here is a sampling. If you’re feeling magnanimous, like me, give them a peek!
rtcvers (my human dad’s blog, sigh)
4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post:
5. Post seven interesting things about yourself:
Before I was Franny, I was Lacey. Before Lacey, I was Tabitha. And before I was Tabitha, I had an “ineffable effable / Effanineffable / Deep and inscrutable singular Name.”
2. I am a kitten explorer.
As a young kit, I appeared in a gentleman’s garage in Upstate New York. He was friendly and he fed me and called me Tabitha. But he left the screen door open and I had adventures to have. My next appearance was in the Bronx. What happened between Upstate and the Bronx I will never tell. I was collected in the Bronx and an adoption agency called me Lacey. Two months later, after escaping from my temporary holding cell in a PetCo not once, but twice (call me Houdini), I was adopted by my current humans. They named me Franny, like Zooey, like Salinger, because of my angst.
3. I don’t like catnip.
I think it’s because I’m simply stronger than other cats.
He lives across the courtyard from me. He occasionally sits in the window and we stare at each other. His name is Pouncival.
5. I am a world traveler.
Okay, “world” meaning “USA.” I have not only traveled many miles on my pink paw pads, but I’ve also flown to my mom-human’s homestead in Idaho twice. I like it there for all the places to hide, but there’s a large golden retriever who thinks I want to be friends and I DO NOT. I also frequently drive by car to my dad-human’s homestead in rural Pennsylvania. There’s another dog there, small and irritating, and I enjoy eying him with disdain.
6. I am toilet-trained.
And honestly I don’t understand why I’m the only cat I know who is. Heathens.
7. I tried to eat a roasted pumpkin seed this morning, and it was disgusting. I don’t know why humans try to eat anything but meat.
