Awards & Pigeons!

Oh my goodness...Meowmie finally switched on her pooter and I have got TWO awards! *boggles*

My first award is from the handsome and adorable Chairman Mao and is called the Heart of Gold Award. The Award was created by Ariel and this is the thinking behind it...

"Everyone knows someone who goes beyond. A person who always helps others, always has a kind word, a person with a heart of gold. So I told mom I wanted to make an award we could give to those we think deserve it."



I'm so chuffed to have been considered for this award especially by such a lovely fellow as Mao. I am sure this has been given out quite extensively as there are so many thoughtful cats here, so I apologies if you already have it (everyone deserves it!) but I am going to pass this award on to Princess, Chey and Latte.

My next award was given to me by the cute Boy! Boy thinks I am totally HIP! Yay! So he gave me the Totally Hip Blogger Award. Again, apologies if you already have this but I am going to pass this on to Daisy and Karl over at The Cat Realm!



Well, it's that time of year again (and am I very glad to see it once again!)...Yup, it's Pigeon Time!!! The pigeons are increasing in numbers and they like to roost on the roof of our balcony, which we can see from our sitting room window. They do this on purpose to wind me and Castle up, they know we can't get at them. They flap about, waddle around, coo and make a racket in order to get our attention. I try my best to ignore the little buggers but Castle spends hours swearing at them from his perch by the window. Check him out here, getting annoyed by one single pigeon...




...but can you blame him when the little buggers do this to him!!! They PARADE about on the sill RIGHT IN FRONT of our noses, staring at us and winding us up, just inches away through the glass!!! Then when Castle tries to kill them through the glass, they just FLY BACK again and carrying on parading!



I'm doing well, haven't been sick since Sunday - I have still been straining to 'lay eggs' but not to the point where my Sick Up Switch is flicked on and I chuck up afterwards. So maybe the pumpkin is making things easier for me...3 days without an incident is quite good but not unheard of. If we get to 4 or 5 days without incident then I think is a sign the pumpkin is doing its job.

Dear Storm - congratulations to your awards, you deserve them very much! And thank you so much for giving me the hip award - I am very honored!!!
I love Castle's voice - but those pigeons need to be taught a lesson!!! We don't have pigeons in our garden but Doves. And yes, we successfully hunt them.......

Yay for the pumpkin seeming to work for you! :) Now as for those pigeons I have had quite enough of birdies and noisy cats today to last me a few weeks at least... Mummy snuggles should not be disturbed like that for anything!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Congratulations on your awards Storm! And thank you for sending the award my way! Hopefully I can get the Woman to put that up on my blog one of these days... sigh.

Daisy said...

Congratulations on your awards! And thanks for thinking I am Hip, too.

I loved listening to Castle's voice. He has a lot to say! Those pigeons do seem to be a little bit rude.

The Furry Kids said...

Those pigeons are rude!!!

I'm glad your tummy is doing well. We'll cross our paws that the pumpkin does the trick.

Love,
Tazo

Parker said...

pigeons are very rude and they have a lot of nerve getting in your space and taunting you and Castle!
ps - I think the pumpkin is doing its job!

Oah My God~!
The second video is TOO EXCITING!!!!!
And you ROCK!!!!! You make the Pigeons know who is in charge!!!! Excellent!!!!!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Congratulations on your awards. They're very well deserved!

Those pigeons are very brave, or very stupid. We have a lot of birds around here but few come right up the window. If a bird does, and sees one of the cats cat they fly off quickly. I can't believe those pigeons just sit there and taunt you like that! If not for the glass, they'd be din din! Dumb birds :-p

That's good news you haven't had any sick ups after potty yet. I hope this continues for you. Have a great weekend!

storm those videos are hilarious!!!! The first one is so funny - honestly, it sounds like Castle is responding to your human by saying ' I knoooowwwww they are bloody pigeons, I knoooowwwwww'. Hahaha too too cute for words! You crack me up! x

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Thank you so much for the award!!! It means a lot to me. I think Castle is a lot like Kaze because the birdies torture her and she yells at them too. I didn't realize you guys live so high in the air!
