Thankful For Furriends

Hiya! Savannah Here!

My thankfulness is a bit lighter note today…it is about being humbled by the thoughtfulness of my furriends when they do something special for me.  I know lots of awards go around and some of us pawticipate and others don’t, and that’s peachy keen fine I think.  Our paw blog community is diverse and that’s how it outta be…IMHO.

So you saw my Mom’s first attempt at doing a holiday photo edit of me with a Santa hat.  Well, out of the ‘cloud’ I received an email from my very good gurl furriend Cathy Keisha…you know she is the furriend who got me to the Peacock Feathers…and then my Mom bought the Peacock Feather Holiday Wreath…just for me.

Well look what Cathy Keisha and TW fixed up just for ME!

Most of you know about the 2012 Blog of the Year Award circulating…you need to collect 6 Stars from 6 different bloggers to make it complete. I was so fortunate I got my award and first star from Princess Zena…purrrrrs to you PZ…and I passed it back to her as the Rules request.

Then I never received it again and realized I had passed it to mostly furriends who don’t typically (VBP) take part in receiving, passing and posting awards, which is OK.  It just meant I wasn’t ever going to get my award completed, so I started to take it off my blog page when WHAMMO!!

I got TWO more STARS!!!  One from Nissy, my very good mancat furriend at Nerissa’s Life, and of course I am sending one back to him, even tho’ I am sure his Award is complete already.  And next day…another WHAMMO! I got a third Star from Speedy, my bunny pal from Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny.

For Henry, at My Three Moggies, and he can share with Archie and Oscar if he wants, but Henry has a bad boo boo and I think he needs a Blog of the Year Star Award all for himself to make him feel better…purrrrs Henry.

For my Champion Jetty, Hey, It’s Jet Here!…a ladycat needs her Champion and I know Jetty ALWAYS has my back and looks out for me…play bows Jetty.

For a new furriend for many of us in the paw blog community, Miss Nylablue…she was so brave to step forward and share her Real Rescue Cats Are Talking Interview with all of us on my post Tuesday…I want her to end 2012 with a BANG!!…let’s all try to get her Star Award filled with all 6 stars before year’s end, ‘KAY?

For my New York pal, Texas, whose huMom has been dragging her toes and paws getting his post done for ALL the awards he is collecting…so I thought I would toss this one on top of the bunch…MOL

I copied the RULES again from Zena’s site because she was so clear and she was the first to pass this to me.

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

I have proudly displayed my THREE STARS on my blog page and hope I can fill my other 3 before year’s end, but if not, I am very THANKFUL to have furriends who have thought well of me and appreciate their consideration.

WHEW! Now I have to dash over and tell my furriends I passed this Blog of the Year Award to them…

Oh, and just a little ‘teaser’ about an upcoming post…who do you think I am preparing this Holiday Gift for…hmmmm?????  Bet no one guesses…heh…heh…


That’s just one part of the package, but I had to make sure the paper would fit…

Paw pats, Savannah

  5. see everybody loves you Savvy,xx Speedy

  6. Concatulations Savannah ;o) This peacock wreath is just wonderful – WE love it ;o)…maybe it is a gift for Doggy…a second “Tailmometer”?

  7. Hi Savvy…….congratulations on your stars and if you need more, I’ll gladly pass one on to you. This one’s certainly “been around the block” and I think maybe most of us have managed to get six stars one way or another! That Kong Kicker looks like it’s going to make someone a mighty fun prezzie – you seem to be a VERY good “wrapper” – I try to help Mom too but I somehow don’t think she appreciates my wrapping help!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • Well there are still plenty of paw bloggers who haven’t received this award I think. So I am still trying to move it around and still honor the rules. I just learned sweet Misaki passed it to me on Nov 17 when Mom was in Mexico and we lost track of that star. So now I have one more. Thanks for the offer Sammy, I will accept your star too because I did originally pass it to you when I very first got it and so you would have given me one from that post. Anywho, I am very good a helping Mom wrap, especially when she is not there MOL…paw pats, Savannah

  8. Hey Savvy, I think you were away when I gave it to you: so you have 4 stars:-)

    • ears hanging with embarrassment…Mom even commented for me from Mexico then she forgot to write it down…I will post about your kind and thoughtful award Misaki and add another Star to my award posted on my blog. You honored me and I failed to acknowledge you. I am so so sorry. paw hugs, Savvy

  9. congratulations on your award and three stars – and thank you for sharing the award with other great blogs

  10. Thank you so much Henry needs them at the moment especially as he has been sick :-(. Our poor moggie xx

    We are so happy you started getting your stars Savannah! You should have 6 in no time. We love the picture of you in the peacock wreath. The blue in the feathers accents your pretty coat. Your dad is right, you’re way to young to date. Just having good fur friends is probably better anyway. Hitch just saw you zooming around in Spitty’s Furrieri and felt a little jealouse. He’s better now that he knows it’s not serious. Your right, the three our you would look wonderful in a photo. We might have to start a Russian Blue & White club soon. Enjoy helping Mom wrap the present. That’s one of Hitch’s favorite jobs. Right up there with climbing the Christmas tree to check that it’s stable.
    Purrs to you,
    Mistletoe & Hitch

  12. Savannah, that is such a nice award you have received, and we think you have earned way more than six stars, you are always so nice to everyone. That photo of you as the center of that gorgeous wreath is really nice.

    • heh… one is gonna guess who the prezzies are for unless they have been paying attenshun! And I just added my 4th star I took from Trout Towne Tabbies…woot woot!!! And yes, CK was so generous to do that for me! We both share a love for Peacock Feathers!
