Toesies Tuesday and an Award

Happy Toesies Tuesday to all! Please biggify to see two very important things about this photo: 1) my multi-color toesies 2) my "great truths" jar which reminds me and my brother Mr. Chen to lead examined lives and to remember to consider the great truths and mysteries of this precious thing we call life.

We were also recently awarded a "Thinking Blogger" award from our good friends Zevo Calamari, Miss Boo, and the Pooses For Peace. This is very humbling for us to receive this award from them because their blog definitely makes us think. Thank you Zevo and Miss Boo and the other Pooses!! We are very grateful and try to now carry this great honor forward for thinking kitties everywhere.

Here are the rules (as passed on from Zevo and crew):
1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.

2. Acknowledge this post.

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

4. Go tell your humans to fork over the treats!

While it is very tough to choose five other blogs that make us think out of all the wonderful blogs out there, we would like to award this to the following five kitties:
Karl because Karl and the entire Cat Realm always get us thinking, especially about issues of justice.
Dragonheart because Dragonheart teaches us so much about his breed and about tolerance for those who might not look like we do
Adan because Adan is always thinking and he and Michico teach us many things about Taiwanese culture and history
Chase for her amazing ability to transcend obstacles with positive thinking and service to others
Rocky and all the other staff at Artsy Catsy for nurturing the creative side

But really each and every kitty in the Cat Blogosphere makes us think and learn something new so thank you to all our dear friends for opening our eyes every day to your worlds. It makes us all better for sharing them with each other, don't you think?

Chen & Ollie said...

Hi Kimo and Sabi, yes it is a Mac Book Pro and *technically* I'm not allowed to sit on and I'm especially not supposed to lie on it like this but yesterday was very cold here in Philadelphia and the thing generates a lot of heat so I worked it till I got booted off. (Mommy obviously didn't think it was too bad of me to be on it because she got out the flashy box first before kicking me off it.)

I like you multi-colored toes! I wish I was allowed to sleep on the laptop. You are lucky. I am not even allowed to walk across the keyboard. Even though I try to do it every day.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...
