MOUSES!

Yoo-hoo!  YOO-HOO!!!  IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!

Did you hear?  DID YOU HEAR???  It's my second blogoversary.

That's right, exactly two years ago today, I wrote my very first blog post.  Wow, time sure does fly when you're havin' fun.

And now my friends... kick back in your seats, have a little nip of the nip, indulge in the fanciest of the fancy feast and let's have some fun 'cause today is a day to celebrate, for sure.  'Cause did I tell you?  IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!

Wow, so much has happened durin' the past two years.  Too much for me to mention everything here but there is one really, really big thing that I wanna celebrate 'cause it's the epitome of celebratory...  celebratory...  stuff to celebrate.

MOUSES! is a word.  Could you believe it?  I've invented a lot of words over the past two years but only one - so far - has made it into the Facebook and Blogger spell checks.  Unfortunately, I am still waitin' to hear back from the peeps at Oxford and Websters about gettin' MOUSES! into their dictionaries but I haven't given up.  I'll never give up.  I'll get MOUSES! in there eventually even if I have to teleport over to their offices, myself!  MOUSES!

So, in keepin' with the whole MOUSES! theme...  we're gonna celebrate my blogoversary, MOUSES! style.

First of all, I enlisted the help of the peep to create a brand spankin' new award just for the occasion and you guessed it...  the name of the award is...  MOUSES!

Acceptin' the MOUSES! Award is super easy.  Easy peasy, as they say.  You just have to do four things and they're all easy peasy things to do.

Firstly, you need to thank the blogger who gave you the MOUSES! Award.  Secondly, you need to post the award somewhere on your blog.  Thirdly, when acceptin' the award, you need to use the word MOUSES! in a sentence.  For this requirement, you may also choose to use one of the many variations of MOUSES! if you so desire.  You know...  like...  mousin', mouses, moused-up, etc...  Finally, you need to pass the MOUSES! Award on to two or more bloggers.  You can pass it along to as many as you like but please try for at least two so that the award is spread around the blogosphere and doesn' fizzle out or anything.  And you'll wanna pass the award on to bloggers whose work you read regularly and would therefore, sure as mouses recommend.  See what I did there?  Yup, you spotted it.  I used a derivation of MOUSES! in a sentence.  Lead by example, I say.  Lead my example...

Allow me to now announce the first ever recipients of the new MOUSES! Award.  PEEPERS...  drum roll, please... 

- Herman at It's a Wonderpurr Life
- Sammy at onespoiledcat
- Savvy at Savannah's Paw Tracks
- the staff' at Dash Kitten
- Spitty at Spitty Speaks
- Katie at Katie Isabella
- the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head
- Sparkle at Sparkle the Designer Cat
- Katie & Waffles at GLOGIRLY
- Nellie at Cat from Hell
- Flynn at Our Life by Eric and Flynn
- Mario at Mario's Meowsings
- Layla at Cat Wisdom 101
- Austin at CATachresis
- Texas at Texas, a Cat in New York
- Timmy at Tomcat Commentary by Tim
- Purrla at Singapore Kitty
- Speedy at Speedy the Cheeky House Bunny
- Maxwell, Faraday & Allie at A Tonk's Tail
- the crew at Colehaus Cats

But the fun doesn't end there.  No sir, the fun is just beginning 'cause...
WE'RE HAVIN' A GIVEAWAY!

That's right, I got the peep to whip up some knitted mice along with a couple fabric biff bags and she's in the process of stuffing 'em with nip as we speak.  Ol' Peepers used autumnal colours and they're really quite pretty and, of course, the nip is of the highest quality available.  Totally organic and everything.

Now, who out there would like to win some mice stuffed with the nip?  I know I would.  What's that Peepers?  Oh yeah...  I'm not eligible to win 'cause I'm supposed to be the one giving them away.  MOUSES!

Anywho...  I know there are some cats out there who would love a selection of paw-made nip mice so let's get this giveaway started.

The contest is open to all cats (and dogs, bunnies, peeps, etc...) WORLDWIDE.  You don't have to be a blogger to enter.  ANYONE can enter.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post with your name, making sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner.

You can earn extra entries, too.  Yoo-hoo!  YOO-HOO!!!

Earn an extra entry if you like my page on Facebook (if you haven't already) AND share 'bout my giveaway there.  Just leave a separate comment here on this blog post sayin' you did so.

Earn an extra entry if you follow me on Twitter (if you don't already) AND tweet 'bout my giveaway there.  Just leave a separate comment here on this blog post sayin' you did so.

And earn one more extra entry if you leave a comment on this blog post and in that comment, you use MOUSES! in a sentence.  You can use the original MOUSES! or any of its variations such as mouses, mousin', moused-up, etc...

All entries must be in by midnight Monday November 11th, Atlantic time.  I'll be doin' the draw on the 12th.  MOUSES!

  73. Mouses! Happy Blogoversary Nissy. We are a little belated for which we apologize. It is the fault of those moused-up humans of ours who will not stay home. And the worst part about getting here late is that you gave us little mouse-loving (as in catching and eating) kitties the Mouses award. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We feels so honored to receive this award directly from you, the Mouses creator. We'll get the useless mom from her foreign location to post about it right now, since it is still Thankful Thursday. And, of course we want to be entered in the nip mouse giveaway. Mauricio would like to win one for his girl friend, Allie.
