10 truths about us

Thank you to The Devil Dog for this award. We should have posted this ages ago, but it's the same old story about trying to find good help.

The "rules" for this award and meme are as follows: "When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim. Link back to said person so everyone knows who he or she is. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or, improvise by including ones who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. After, pass it on!"

Ms. P: Ten honest things about us? No problem.

Cinza: Too bad we can't list 10 honest things about our humans because I've been keeping lots of notes!

Ms. P: (With a big sigh) Okay, back to the subject at hand, here's our list:

1) Cinza likes her greens -- plants (dead or alive) and romaine lettuce (she doesn't like iceberg or the red leafy stuff); so far she won't eat broccoli.

2) Ms. P enjoys her morning coffee straight out of the man's cup and can't understand why he isn't willing to share.

3) Cinza loves to dig in the litter box and manages to come up with a different design each time (even after the box has been freshly cleaned); she also scatters litter all over the floor.

4) Ms. P doesn't like to dig in the box and leaves her business for her staff to take care of (Cinza will run into the bathroom and cover up for Ms. P before the humans get a chance to clean).

5) Cinza won't respond to her name, but will respond to the smell of lettuce.

6) Ms. P will respond to her actual name (Patches).

7) While the humans are watching a DVD, Cinza will run into the room like her tail is on fire, open a drawer and then run out again.

8) Ms. P, on the other hand, likes to say hello to both humans before curling up on her special pillow and settling in for a nap beside them.

9) Cinza will continuously sleep for hours and hours during the morning and early afternoon.

10) Ms. P takes short naps and when she wakes up she'll say hello to the humans, inspect the castle and then find a new place to snooze.

We would like to give this award to everyone who comments on today's post, but only if you would like to participate.


  1. You two are very interesting! We especially like #7:) And somehow we didn't know that Ms. P's name is actually Patches, so we learned something new about her. We'll post our Honest Scrap next week.

  2. We recognize a couple of those. Others made us laugh. Especially #7. We already got this award, so we'll pass. We also have problems with the help so we haven't blogged about it yet.

  3. Hi,

    Alfie sent me round to read your honest scraps so I can tell him all about what you said (as he's still feeling poorly).
    I love the ones about the litter box - 'cos Alfie does that too! Mom said he digs for England - and sometimes he even gets in the litter box when Mom is trying to put fresh grit or scoop the poop.

    love Milo xx

  4. Hey, you ladies have cool honest scrap! Cinza should come and live with us....Mother has puréed spinach to put in our food today....blech! And Cinza...what's with the drawer thing? That's funny! We have done this tag twice already, otherwise we might have played's really doing the rounds!
    Slobbers xx

  5. Yum, I think lettuce is tasty!

  6. Well you two are delightful cats! I love learning more about each of you.

  7. We love your honesty. I say we make one day Tattle Tale Tuesday about your beans. That would be very fun. But only if we could escape afterwards.



Thanks for visiting. We love hearing from you!!
