COT and more awards



It's a lousy picture in so many ways with all the light bouncing off the floor and off Au's green eyes but I do like this pic because Au is so incredibly relaxed and happy looking. This was him yesterday, hanging out under the coffee table after having a quiet day's snoozing, playing games and hanging out with his pal Target and his best human Tom. Au was in such a good mood that even I got cuddles and purrs.

*apologies* I forgot that Anya and Kareltje sent us the World's Best Cat Mom award three weeks ago! Sorry, got all tangled up in work. It makes me very proud to be mum to Target. But I think I'm more slave to Au than mum. At least, that's how he sees it!

I'd like to send this on to Ee Lynn of Covert Operations who rescues cats, dogs, and everything else on paws or claws in Malaysia and the Creek Cats as they are all rescued fluffs living in the USA.

Also, we got another award from Ailurophile who writes those great weekly news roundups about cats and their big cousins the tigers, lion, jaguars etc around the world.

The 'Works of Heart' Award was designed by Yesterday's Glitter and her original post is here. The rule is that the award is for, "...people who put their heart and soul into their work, their words and/or their kindness to others." Each recipient is supposed to pass it on to 2 people. I'm passing it along to Ariel who always has something to say (usually while being beautifully accessorised) and to Elin who wears no accessories at all.

Au indeed looks very relaxed, and also pretty in this picture. Love his pretty green eyes. Hope you had a great Mother's Day and a nice week :) Congrats on all the awards. You deserve them!

Hahaha..don't worry about Au! I'm sure he loves you but just as much, but too 'manly' to show it! :) Congrats on the awards!!

That's really a nice picture ! He looks so "cool" ! My cats have also enjoyed the nice weather at least during the weekend. Now it's cool and grey again.

Wow! Thank you so much for the award! I do love my babies so very much and want to do the best for them.

Au is such a handsome ladykiller. I love the way he leans against furniture! What a come-hither look! Love his little mouth and cute pale nose!

Actually, it's not a bad photo. It has a very soft lighting and texture, and sometimes that can work well.
And it does show his green eyes (a detail we at CatSynth tend to notice)

The Creek Cats said...

Congrats on the award--that was the award that brought me to your blog actually (from the blog that gave it to you). To answer your question from the comment you left me a little while back: I'm owned by 4 kitties--Zorro, Allie Mae, Puma, and Snacker.
