Accepting the Sunshine Award

The Sunshine Blog Award
Hello out there in the Bloggosphere,

You may have realised that I'm not the kind of cat who goes in for the beauty-pagent type cat shows. But I am pleased to announce I am still an award-winning cat.

In the past month I have been awarded the Sunshine Blog Award, not once, but twice.  This of course advances my work towards total world domination dramatically.

I first received the Sunshine Award from my Minion Dugal, and his associates at Three Aussie Cats. These three fine felines clearly recognise blogging excellence.

Then I received it from my Minion Gemma, who looks something like a dog, but is in fact an honorary cat. You can read her work at Gemma's Little Gems.

In accepting this award, I have to share with you some things about myself. These questions are all highly personal, so I hope you'll respect my privacy and not go telling this information to just anyone.

Favourite number: 18, because my favourite human is Mr 18. Next year, when he turns 19, my favourite number will change.

Favourite non-alcoholic drink: Cream. I have lactose-free cream so it won't upset my delicate constitution.

Facebook or Twitter: I have both, but I only have about eight minions on Facebook, and about 800 on Twitter.  I believe Twitter will be a much better tool for my quest to rule the world.

My passion: World domination. Humans really are not competent to control the planet - you know what a mess they've made of the job.  I believe it's up to me to fix the problems.

Favourite pattern: Muddy paw prints. They look great over the car windscreen, across Mum's bedspread, along benches, pretty much anywhere.

Favourite day of the week: The days Mr 18 stays with me instead of going to TAFE.

Favourite flower: Catnip. Mum says that's not strictly speaking a flower, but if I'm ruling the world I can decide what is and isn't a flower!

The other part of accepting the award is to give it away to ten other blogs. This was a hard one for me.  Most of my Minions who have blogs have already received the award.  Mum said she knew some awesome lupus bloggers who deserved an award - but they're all humans and really, do we want to encourage humans at anything? In the end, I decided to do some of both - five awards to my minions, and five to Mum's lupus bloggers.

  1. Billy the Pig
  2. Cat Food Breath
  3. Cat's Life
  4. Jessie and Jane
  5. Swiss Cat's Ideas
  6. A Lupie Existence
  7. Lissa's World
  8. Takin' Pills and Payin' Bills
  9. Lupus Interrupted
  10. Lupie Cave

In conclusion. I thoroughly deserve this award. I am, after all, an absolutely awesome cat.

Until next time we meet in the bloggosphere,
I remain,
Mr Bumpy,
