Power of Schmooze Awardees!

Yippie!! We are so excited that our good buddy, Chairman Mao, has nominated us for a Blogger Community Involvement Award (aka "The Power of Schmooze")! We are so honored! We have never been nominated for anything so this is really something special - many thanks to you MaoMao for this very cool award!!

Here's some more info about the Power of Schmooze:

"As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability 'to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.' Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."

Each recipient is to post the badge on their site with a link to their post and bestow the award upon five other bloggers. We love to schmooze and to visit other kitties and meet new friends and learn about new kitties in the blogosphere. Now that we have been nominated, we get to pick some other kitties to nominate (this is just as fun as being nominated actually!) We nominate:

Monty Q. Kat from Survival of the Furriest because Monty always is very kind and has a good thing to say in his posts. He also pioneered the full monty (we think) so he is sort of legendary in the cat blogosphere.

Adan from Adan's Everyday because Adan is very community oriented and always is visiting his friends in the blogosphere and leaving kind words. Adan is also bridging international relations by posting in multiple languages and we think that's pretty cool!

Derby because Derby is a great guy and also always posts kind things and visits his buddies out in the blogosphere.

Zevo Calamari and Boo because Zevo and Boo are highly engaged in the community and are always exposing us kitties to important events and news. They're also always trying to help other kitties (like recently when they posted about kitties in San Diego who need a forever home).

Congrats to all our Power of Schmooze nominees! And, of course, thanks again to our budski Mao Mao for nominating us!!
