The Lovely Liebster Award and the Not-So Lovely Balloon

The furry handsome Clooney and gorgeous Neytiri have given us the Liebster Award!

"Liebster" is German for dear, beloved or lovely.
So this must mean that we are dearly beloved kitties with a lovely blog!

Thank you, Clooney and Neytiri!!!

As part of accepting this award, we are to...

1) Link back to the blogger who gave it to us,
2) Paste the award on our blog,
3) Choose 5 blogs to pass this award to
(they must be up-coming blogs with fewer than 200 followers), and 
4) Let them know about their nomination by leaving a comment on their blogs.

So here are 5 lovely blogs that we are passing the Liebster award to:

We would like to wish them all a furry big

And now... here was what happened 2 days ago when Mommy's friend brought a balloon to the house.

Slash got totally spooked by it and Mommy had to comfort him.

He kept wanting to run away, but Mommy made him stay.

She stroked his chin to calm him and explained that there was nothing scary about balloons.

So Slash did his best not to run and hide.

But he was extremely suspicious of the balloon. 

He stared and stared and stared at it without blinking at all.

Gotta say that I was impressed that his eye balls didn't dry out.

And that he didn't get a stiff neck.

Mommy stayed to comfort Slash for quite a long time and he seemed to relax.

But the moment Mommy got distracted, he made a run for it.

Hmmm... looks like balloons can now be added to Slash's long and growing list of fears.

Oh Slash, you are such a sweetie, that must be a bad balloon if it frightened you so! Congrats to the 5 blogs who received the award, they are awesome!

Concatulations on the award! BTW, I too think balloons are scary - but Binga is fascinated by them!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Slash, WE'D run from a scary monster balloon too! That was mean of your mom to make you stay there, we think. And smart of you to run and hide as soon as you could! Those balloons can float around, so who knows what trouble they could create?

Concats on your award! We follow all the blogs you awarded it to, they're all wonderful. :-)

Congratulations on the award. We are very happy for you. You did a fabulous job with staying there watching the balloon. Mom was there to protect you. Maybe, later on, you can go play with the string. It will be a fun game. Have a great weekend. Thanks for the share.
