TattleCat Presents...The Wonderpurr Award 2013

 My Anipal friends are known for being super talented, super creative, and super giving of their time in support of those pals in great need.

I wanted to acknowledge a handful of special pals who have maintained a higher than average level of giving throughout 2013.

The first Wonderpurr Award goes to Dana Moody @DanaPixie for Superior Creativity on Anipal Wedding photos. My mom, @KimberleyKoz joined the Anipal Wedding Planners to help Dana this past year, and now has a deep understanding of how much time and utter patience Dana has in making Anipal Wedding dreams come true. Yes, it truly takes a village to put an Anipal wedding together. Besides Dana, the other Anipal Wedding Planners are @holliecatrocks @lilyluwhoT @TigerBoyTheCat @FreshOtis @PuppyNumber7 @ShaynaCat @MickeyShortTail and my mom Kimberley Koz.

The next Wonderpurr Award also goes to Dana Moody for #PawCircle support. 2013 has been a truly horrific year of sadness, and without #PawCircle we would not have had a place to go to give someone in need our prayers and our support. Thank you Dana, and also Donna @TigerBoyTheCat, for this truly wonderpurr gift to the Anipal community.

The next Wonderpurr Award goes to @JeffMusk for Superior Creativity and Creation of #WigItUpWednesday. This started out as something fun to do on Wednesdays, but this year Jeff color coordinated wigs to support issues like Breast Cancer and Abuse. While there are others who are happy to make wigs for those pals unable to make their own, it's Jeff who makes the truly fabulous wigs and for that we are grateful.

The next Wonderpurr Award goes to @NewtTheCat for outstanding Promotion of Liver Shunt Awareness in Cats and the Creation of #TiaraTuesday and #HopePawty. I didn't know about Liver Shunt before I met Newt, but now I'm informed, and I love the concept of wearing tiaras on Tuesday.

And finally, last but absolutely never least, I present my Wonderpurr Award to @MorboKif and @OldLivvyCat for Superior Pawty Avatars and the Creation of #RideDayFriday. If you haven't been on one of the monthly Rides, you don't know what you're missing. Yeah sure, we usually ride a dog...or maybe a camel...but what is spectacular is the adventure we have of traveling to interesting places to learn about them. The effort behind the Ride is considerable and @MorboKif, along with @HRMeownessWills and @ArcherPaws and... me @TattleCat ... try to make each Ride something special and fun for all who join us.

Despite the sadness that 2013 brought to most of us, I still feel blessed to know all of you. Some of you I just met this past year, while others I enjoyed getting to know better. In any case, I truly love you all and look forward to having a lot of fun with you in 2014.

Happy Mew Year!

Herman!!! @TattleCat, Kim @KimberleyKoz, Gidget @Chef_Gidget and Dori @Adorapurr

1st Nerissa The Cat Award Goes To...

Of course!

For the past two years Nerissa has entertained and informed his readers with a variety of topics from political to adventure. He is funny. He is smart. He is talented. He is super great about being there for all of his friends. And best of all...despite his many awards...he maintains a humble ego.

This is not an award to pass around. This is an award that me, Herman, will give to someone on December 31st every year for their outstanding purrformance as an Entertaining Blogger.

And so, with great pleasure, I award the First Nerissa to my bestie, @NerissaTheCat. I'm proud of you, Niss, and I am inspired by your wonderpurr talent.

Wonderpurr Phi

Our beloved Phi always surprised us...but we never expected her to surprise us like this...
Going Over the Rainbow Bridge...
without us first sitting on her porch
or having pawprayer rallies.

That's okay. I understand.

Sometimes when an amazing opportunity comes along you haz to grab it.
You can't wait.
That's what our Beloved Phi did today.
She got the opportunity to see what it's like on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
So she took it.

Tent Town

This morning Dad made a cool tent in dining room. He had to go to work, so he didn't get to play in it.

We will warm it up for when he returns.

Man Cave Kitty

It’s been a wonderpurr week at my house -- the place where I live.

At least it has been for me.

I no longer need eye drops for my allergies. For a couple weeks I’ve not had my picture taken cuz I looked like I’d been sobbing my lil heart out. My eyes were red, crusty and runny. Mom said she could hardly look at me let alone post my photo for furends to see. But now I’m better. Yay!

Then outside kitty Jesse started coughing and his nose looked puffy. Dr. Ellis said his lungs were clean, so coughing might be allergies…or heart worms, but we aren’t going to think like that! His puffy nose could be an allergy to sunshine and he was prescribed a daub of zinc oxide like he is sunning at the beach. It could also be plastic allergy.

Jesse's nose allergy at its worst

Years ago my mom’s Siamese, Holly, had her lower lip balloon from plastic food dishes. We don’t use plastic, except Mom FORGOT the outside water bowl was plastic because the raccoons love fresh cat water. Ceramic bowls break. Regardless, plastic bowls are gone, replaced by a turkey roaster.

Then! If all that wasn’t enough to keep my mom busy and not writing…Dori’s twin, Patsy, who is an outside cat, got real sick. Before you ask why is Patsy an outside kitty and Dori is an indoor kitty -- it's like this: Patsy was not happy living indoors during the winter, but the minute my mom put her back outside with daddy Nik, Patsy simmered down and became a well-adjusted cat.

Anyway! Patsy wasn’t hungry and slept a lot, so she went to see Dr. Ellis. Poor lil tiger kitten had a tempurrature of 103, and her lungs were raspy. She got a shot and had to take Chlorpheniramine pills two times a day for over a week. Since she couldn’t stay outside, she got to hang out in my dad’s Man Cave with access to closets where she had a snuggly bed. Dad even put toys in the tub for her, including a well-loved ball that now has her stink on it so it’s no good to me anymore.
Patsy loves living in back yard
Patsy surprised us by taking her pill without issue. Mom dipped pill in wet canned food and Patsy swallowed it. But then…Mom was rushed, didn’t have canned food ready and popped it into Patsy’s mouth. OMC! Patsy drooled and scowled something fierce. So of course she ran and hid. It took a couple days before she was back to taking her pills like a good girl. She also let my mom clip her nails without issue. What a show off!

Dad calls Patsy “Tiger” and enjoyed having a Man Cave kitty for over a week. He even shared his cheese nachos with her. We aren’t allowed in the Man Cave so me and Dori and Opie and Gidget huddled outside the door scowling while we listened to Patsy get special attention.

But now she’s back outside and no one is happier than her dad, Nikolas. He had been calling for Patsy all week, worried about her. 

Best Daddy Cat Award goes to Nikolas
When he saw her, Nik was so thrilled he licked her ears and checked her over to make sure she was okay. So now they’re together again, hunting tiny frogs and exploring the woods behind our house.

Well, that’s what happened at my house. What’s been going on at yours?

Haz a wonderpurr week!

Princess Mya Art Work

I was speaking to @ItsMeDeaner a couple days ago, and he said his furless has been suffering from a cold and allergies. Just miserable! Enough to keep her home from school.

So I asked my mom to make her a picture to cheer her up:

Well, the picture inspired untapped talents in the lovely princess. These are the pictures she made for me:

Me, Herman, on a magic carpet. It's 3D!!!

Me again on the Magic Carpet, and that's Princess Mya lying down, enjoying the ride.
I am a huge fan of Princess Mya. She loves kitties, and her smile brightens up any room she's in.

This is another picture she drew for me earlier this summer.

If you want to leave a comment for her mom to read to her, I'm sure she would enjoy hearing from you. Or, you can tweet to @ItsMeDeaner and tell her you enjoy her art work.

Tango Charlie 622

I took Basic Training on Saturday, August 17, 2013 and passed! I got accepted into The Aviators!

I just wanted to show off my official pilot photo and also my license. There is a lot more I haz to learn, but for now I'm super happy that I passed and my instructor @DearClyde didn't take my goggles away.

I also made a couple new pals in class:


So stay tuned. I can't wait to go on my first flying adventure.

#Bedtime Story with a Golfing Princess

#GiveAHoot Fundraiser Success

On Friday, July 27, Anipals slipped out of their furs and shells, and dressed up in their best feathery fineness to attend the #GiveAHoot fundraiser in support of our pal Lou @LiveLoveMeow and his mom, Sass.

Homeless, and without a job, Lou's mom struggled to keep Lou safe, especially after the temporary place to stay she found for them turned out to be full of scary hoomans, which put them back out on the street.

But on Friday night, pals flocked around Lou and Sass to show their love and support. By the end of the pawty, the dark clouds that had been hovering over them for a long time were pushed away. They no longer felt alone and afraid. They knew they had family in the Anipals, and were on their way to a Happily Ever After!

Sass owns an on-line business called that sells quality cat-related items. She is now having a SALE to help her afford a permanent home for herself and Lou. Please click on link to see more.

If you missed the pawty, but you still #GiveAHoot to help Lou and Sass, click on Lou's photo for link to their YouCaring.
