family and friends

...  And no, I'm not doin' an ad for a long-distance provider.  Hehehehe...

But seriously folks, not that long ago, I was given the honour of bein' awarded the absolutely stupendous Multi-Cat Blog Award by my pals over at The Cat on my Head.  My friends Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette were celebrating their first blogoversary and decided to do so by creating and introducing this gorgeous award!  It's beautiful and I love it.  Thanks so much for presentin' it to me. 

In accepting the Multi-Cat Blog Award, I must thank my pals at The Cat on my Head and link back to them.  Well... THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!!  THANK YOU!!!  I really am very thankful for this award.  Even though the link to their blog is shown on the award itself, I'm gonna link back officially, too.  Just click on their blog's name, here...  The Cat on My Head, and you'll be whisked off to visit them all.

Apparently, I was one of the chosen recipients 'cause I'm a blogger livin' with more than five cats.  What's that Peepers?  You think Nerissa's Life was given the award 'cause you're a peep livin' with more than five cats?  No, I don't think so.  I don't think that can be right.  Peepers, you'll notice that the award was given to my blog, Nerissa's Life.  Nerissa is my name, not yours.  That means it's my award.  Had the award been for you, it would have been presented to you over on that thing you call a blog but hardly ever update.  You know the one...  The Peep's Cheeps or somethin' like that.  It's hard to remember the name 'cause you work on it, so rarely.  That's 'cause you're the peep.  I'm Nerissa.  Nerissa the cat.  Nerissa the cat of Nerissa's Life.  The award is mine.

And let me tell you something, it's not easy livin' with all these other cats.  There are twelve of us, you know.  Yeah...  twelve cats.  It's a pretty big family.

Havin' a family of this size means that I have to share my peeps' attentions with eleven other cats and that could be a bad thing.  On the other paw, havin' a family of this size means I GET to share my peep's attentions with eleven other cats and that's definitely a good thing. 

You know, even though there are twelve of us, there are more than enough of the kisses and cuddles to go around.  Sometimes, too many.  Sometimes, way too many.  I'm always havin' to watch out for peeps comin' over, pickin' me up and givin' me cuddles.  One day - I swear - those peeps of mine are gonna wear my fur right off me with all the cuddling.  It's pretty amazing I'm not bald already.  If I didn't live with eleven other cats, I bet I would be bald already.  If I didn't live with eleven other cats, I'd never get a break.  Thank goodness for my fur family.  Thank goodness they're willin' to accept some of the cuddles on my behalf.

And if you're wondering if two peeps are enough peeps for the twelve of us cats...  I can assure you, they are.  I've got my paws full with just the two of them.  I don't know what I'd do with a third.  A third peep might just put me over the edge.  Two peeps are more than enough!

So between all the other cats and the couple of peeps, I've got a pretty big family but I always have time for my friends.

One of my pals, Sammy from over at the world-famous blog onespoiledcat, recently introduced me to a new friend.  Her name is Cat even though she's a peep.  Yeah, I know...  it's kind of confusing.  No more confusing, though, than the fact that I'm a boy with a girls' name.  Thanks a lot for that, by the way, peepers.  MOUSES!

Anywho...  This new pal of mine, Cat, is a musician.  Now, I must admit, I was a little worried about this fact, at first.  You all know 'bout my trials and tribulations with my caterwaulin' peep, right?  Well, I didn't have to worry about Cat at all.  It turns out, that Miss Cat is good.  Actually, really good.  I wouldn't describe what she does as caterwaulin', one bit.  That's the difference between my new pal, Miss Cat, and my peep #1 and let me tell you, it's a really big difference, indeed.

Miss Cat has a website called and you should really check it out.  It's incredibly interestin' and fun.  I liked it a lot.  I'm even followin' her, now.

And she makes videos!  Works of art, they are.  If you wanna watch all Miss Cat's videos, you'll have to go to her website to check them out.  And you can hear more of her music there, too.  It's really good and I should know 'cause bein' a cat, I have very sensitive ears.  If music passes the test of my ears, it must be good.

And get this...  I got to make an appearance in Miss Cat's most recent video.  Bet I might even end up on MTV or something.  Wouldn't that be fun?

I'm not the only cat appearin' in Miss Cat's latest video.  There are lots of us along with some dogs.  It was really neat 'cause a lot of those cats and dogs were already my friends.  It was like a big ol' happy reunion right there on film.  I think I'm gonna probably want to watch this particular video over and over and over again.  Yup, it's that good!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if all of you wanna watch it over and over and over again, too.  Like I said, it's that good!

  3. Congrats on the nice award, y'all qualify 2+ times! Dang, I couldn't get the video to play so I'll have to check it later, looks darn cool!

    1. Oh no! It wouldn't play for you? MOUSES!

      If you go onto Cat's webpage, the video is there, too. It should play fully for you there. That's where I watched it the first few times. purrs

  4. We really liked the video and the music, Nissy. Now you go and keep those peeps and siblings in line.

  5. What a wonderfur bit of music. We visited and like what we hear and see. You look very nice in that movie Nerissa as do our other furends!

    Luckily our Peep does not overdo it with the cuddling except on occasion. I give him the wiggly worm act and he puts me down. MOL


  6. its is a great video Nissy,congrats on the award to you do deserve it my friend,xx Speedy

  7. Congratulations on your award, Nerissa!
    The video was very fun and we enjoyed it! Perhaps we need a couple more furblings to keep Mommy from cuddling us all day. Though we might not enjoy having to share our treats!

    Mollie and Alfie

  10. Wow, Nerissa, I knew you had a big family, but I didn't know there were 12 of you! I bet you keep your humans really busy, MOL!

  11. Wow, Nissy thanks for all the publicity. You are one terrific friend. We are grateful to the bottom of our furry little hearts, and Mom is over the moon. Think we could get her to stay their if we asked nicely? But, as usual, we digress. Of course, that award is yours…ALL yours. The post did say it was for Nerissa's Life. And as you said, you are Nerissa. Let your woman peep get her own award. We saw that very cool video with you and many other of our bloggy friend's. We wonder who's you-know-what Sammy had to kiss to get that #1 spot? We love you bunches Nissy and so does our mom. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  12. Congrats Nerissa! That is a pawsome award :)

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  23. ConCATulation to the award , Nissy !
    Cool video with all thoose blogging cats and dog´s :)

  24. Concatulations on your award, and on appearing in a music video.

    I'm more into metal music myself. Mr 19 and I listen to metal together, and we both wear metal music colours (black and white) ALL the time. We're such devoted metal heads. But I don't headbang. And Mr 19 says he can't take me to concerts because they're all on licenced premises and I'm only 7. You can't get into those until you're 18 (so Mr Woof could get in next year, but he says he's too old to want to go, and he says he likes Bach better anyway.)

  25. Concats on your award, Nissy - Yes, YOUR award. No doubt about that :-)

  26. Congratulations on YOUR award! Geesh! What were those others thinking?? Purrs....

  27. Concats on the award NERISSA-not-the-Peep. That's a darn cool video (except for all those woofies; well, I like Easy and Misaki but I dunno about the OTHER ones). Also, what's up with that French girlcat that likes peas? Pretty darn strange, I think. Maybe she's not REALLY a cat?

  28. Well I am glad you're not bald, Nissy what with living in Canada and all. It gets mighty cold!! Guess what? I'm on that video too AND the stupid snivelling menial of a human assistant hasn't even let me mention it yet on the blog. It's outrageous!!


I love hearin' from my pals. I really, REALLY do. PURRS.
