Boy-oh-boy... let me tell you... PEEPS!
So way back when, in old and ancient times now appearin' in the latest of the history books, the peep promised to make me an award to celebrate my reaching twenty-five thousand hits on my blog. Well... that was three thousand hits ago! MOUSES!!!
Now finally... FINALLY... she has the award all ready for presentation. Turns out the timing is kind of appropriate 'cause the award is about love and this is February and all and Valentine's Day is next week. But let me assure you - under no uncertain terms - this was not the peep's plan all along. This is simply what one calls a fortuitous coincidence. I know... some cats and peeps don't believe in coincidences and whatnot but again, I assure you, this was not part of the ol' peep's plan. The original plan was that I present the first recipients of this award, with this award, three thousand hits ago!!!
So without any further delays, let me tell you all about the Why I Love Thee award. In acceptin' this award, one must do the following four things. Firstly, you've gotta thank the cat who gave it to you and link back to their blog. Secondly, you need to post the award somewhere - anywhere will do - on your blog. Thirdly, you need to tell us all why you love your peep. Now, this is part that get just a teensy bit complicated. What if you are a peep? Well, in that case, tell us all why you love your cat... or dog... or bunny... or... well, you get the picture, right? But you've gotta tell us why you love somebody 'cause this award is all about the love. And last, but not least, you need to pass the award along. You can pass it along to one blog or fifteen blogs or any number of blogs in-between. Pretty easy stuff, right? Yeah... easy peasy.
That reminds me... Remember last year around this time when my brother Seville wrote a poem entitled Easy Peasy and presented it to the peep for Valentine's Day? It went like this...
The more I drink,
the more I pee.
I more I pee,
the easier it be.
That's the key!
Yeah... the rest of us cats gave peep #1 a little red rose bush last year. Seville wrote her a poem and then so helpfully demonstrated by peein' on her. That's right. For Valentine's Day, he peed on the peep! What a character. But I digress...
Back to the award. Well, since I'm startin' us all off I guess I don't need to thank anyone or link back to their blog. Although I could thank the peep for finally gettin' her act together and makin' the award presentable. Okay, I'll officially thank Peep #1 and link back to her blog, The Peep's Cheeps. Think she might even have a new story on it today. Who knows? She's not a prolific writer like me. And I do need to explain why I love the peep. Hmmm... let's see... I think I love the peep most 'cause whenever I'm sad or scared or even just a little nervous, I can go over to the peep and she'll pick me up and kiss the top of my head and cuddle me and all my worries disappear like magic. I can just melt into her arms and feel safe and loved 'cause I know she loves me lots and lots. Plus, she knows how to open the tins of Fancy Feast. Never mind that... she knows the way to the grocery store to buy the Fancy Feast in the first place! You've gotta love a peep who supplies the Fancy Feast.

Well, there you have it folks... a brand new award goin' to fifteen very deservin' blogs. And since there are lots and lots more deservin' blogs out there, I sure am hoping this award will be hopping all over the blogosphere in no time at all. Got all four paws crossed on that one. But don't worry... I'm sittin' down so as not to fall or anythin'. Standing with all four paws crossed at once can be quite the balancing act!
