Flattered Friday

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! It's Cody! Mom and I were flattered a couple of weeks ago when we received the:

from our dear friends Sammy and his Mom, Pam, over at One Spoiled Cat. If you have never visited Sammy and his Mom before, please do! There is always something fun going on there!

We are deeply honored, as well as surprised to receive this award because we truly don't think we are very inspiring at all! There are a lot of blogs out there who are deserving of this award, but we are flattered and thrilled that Sammy and his Mom have this opinion of us!

As with any award there are requirements that must be met before you can accept it, and the  requirements for accepting this award are that we must answer more questions to give you a little more insight as to what makes us who we are, whatever THAT is!

As always, we will each take a turn replying:

I'm Most Creative...

CODY-when I am hungry and Mom won't give me a snack. I am so "creative" that I just taught myself how to open the kitchen cupboard where my kibble is kept. I taught myself this amazing feat this week! Pretty creative, eh?

MOM- after a few rousing rounds of Words With Friends at about midnight.

If I Were A Color I Would Be...

CODY-RED!! I am an Aries kitty and the color for Aries is RED! That is probably why my red mousie is one of my favorite toys.

MOM-GREEN. Forest green, kelly green. The color of nature. My eyes are green (like Cody's and I don't wear contacts!) Green is my color!

I Often Imagine Myself...

CODY-Face first in a bowl full of kibble. I live to eat.

MOM-living on the island of Kauai, my favorite place on this earth. If not living there, I want to return to Kauai Beach Resort where my husband and I honeymooned almost six years ago.

I Really Wish I Knew How To...

CODY- open a can of cat food by myself so I could eat whenever I would like to!

MOM-there are many things I wish I knew how to do. A few of them are knitting, crocheting, and ice skating.

I'd Love To Spend A Lazy Sunday...

CODY-sleeping on my cat tower. Wait! It doesn't have to be Sunday for me to do that! I do that EVERY DAY! Well, why should Sunday be any different?

MOM- "lazy Sunday?" What's THAT???!! Haven't had one of those in AGES! If I were to have one again (and that won't happen for quite some time), I would love to read the 30+ magazines I have sitting here that I subscribe to that I have NO TIME to read.

I'm Most Excited About...

CODY-my BIRTHDAY!! My birthday is this Sunday (April 1st and that is NO JOKE!)  and I am going to be having a HUGE GIVE-AWAY! (also not a joke!)  I am going to be 5 years old and there are going to be PRIZES you can enter to win!! Our friends at Creme de la Cat and Petfinder have contributed some great prizes just for ME to give to YOU!

MOM-BlogPaws 2012! I have never been to Utah and I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful scenery there. I am also looking forward to reconnecting with some of the amazing people that I met at BlogPaws 2011 and I am greatly looking forward to learning more and  meeting others who couldn't make it last year! Speaking of BlogPaws, Everyone LOVES a discount right? Going to BlogPaws and want to save on registration? Go to and enter the CODE BlogPaws2012-POPs-Caren when you register and you will get a 20% DISCOUNT!! What are you waiting for??? Get those paws moving NOW!

My Secret Talent Is...

CODY-I know tricks. My Dad says "show your trust" and I roll over and show him my wonderful belleh. My Mom snaps her fingers when she is in bed and I come running! I know more tricks than Dakota!

MOM-I have a few! I am an amazing cook (if I do say so myself!), I draw, and my most SECRET talent is that I can shoot water through the gap between my front teeth like a Dolphin!! Oh and I am a fabulous swimmer!

That about sums it up! Those of you who read Cat Chat regularly know that Mom and I are not big on passing awards on, we follow so many blogs that we just know when we do that we inadvertently hurt someone's feelings and we don't want to do that. We just want you to know that the fact that we follow you to begin with means that you are VERY INSPIRING to us!!! Soooooo...grab the award for yourself....with much love from Mom and I!!! And....don't forget about my Birthday Give-Away this Sunday, April 1st!!!! Here is just a teaser of something that you could win!
