Our great friend Pedro has bestowed on us the honor of the Wonderfulness Award.  We think Pedro’s pretty wonderful, so this admiration is thrillingly mutual.

Here’s our rule-following effort, in connection with this honor:

1.  Yes, we follow Pedro’s blog.

2.  Here is where Pedro lives, at “Maru Can Kiss My Furry . . .”  Pedro is an excellent highly motivated business-cow-cat.  In his pursuit of market-share, I’m sure he would appreciate a visit from you.

3.  And the envelope please.  The award goes specially to two others, who share our passion for the subject of empathy.  These two write about dogs, too, but hey.  It’s a big world.

First we want to honor Melanie at “House of Carnivores.”  Melanie and her husband are one of the saintly foster-parents and they have a horde of their own cats, also including two greyhound rescues.  Every post is food for the soul.

Next up, “Love and a Six-Foot Leash,” the chronicles of the joys of pitbull rescue and fostering.  We found this one through WordPress’s Freshly Pressed and boy are we ever glad.  The “When We Don’t See Eye To Eye” post exemplifies why our heart sings, to know that these beings, human and canine, are on the planet.

Let the third slot be filled by all you dear readers who comment and follow this blog.  No reason to write, without you!

Where’s Bugs, you ask?  Sleeping.  Again.

He’s probably overcome by the excitement of preparing for Trex’s arrival.

So here’s a shot of the progress we’ve made, in transforming The Hell Room into Trex’s Base Camp.

Not quite there yet.  But almost.

We better be – time is a-marchin’!  Projected date of transport:  ///This SatCaturday!///

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

  1. There was a BED in there? Wow, it really was a Hell Room!

    • nadbugs says:

      No, see, that’s the thing. The bed was in the living room and the credenza was in The Hell Room and so the stuff from the credenza had to get excavated and thrown out or moved to the storage car and then the decision had to be made whether the stuff got moved to the dump or to the storage locker and then . . . . Somebody stop me.

    Congratulations for being wonderful! I didn’t need to see your award to know that.

  6. Melanie says:

    Thank you, thank you for including us! And I can’t wait to hear more about Trex.

  7. Melanie says:

    Oh, and I will accept the award on my blog… on a different night. I was far too ranty tonight. I want for that to be written about when I’m not doing the ranting thing!

    • nadbugs says:

      Well, but consider the provocation. In light of which, I wouldn’t say you were too ranty at all. But I take your point, about wanting a different mood in which to accept Your Wonderfulness. We shall wait.

  8. Congrats on (and thanks for) being Wonderful! I can’t wait to check out the blogs you chose, even if they do involve canines.

    Great work in Hell Room! Trex is going to appreciate every drop of sweat you shed to get ready for him.

  9. Dianda says:

    Congratulations! 😀

  10. You do realize you are going to have to supply at least a few pictures of the trip, right? A lot of kitties & beans have a purrrrrring interest in Trex.

    Concats on adding a great kittie to your noo home.

  11. I’m so excited for your road trip tomorrow!!! I hope Caturday goes well for all THREE of you!

    • nadbugs says:

      . . . and three of you have even kept track of the date, even in (y)our busy lives. So, on this momentous Caturday morning — as I watch the sky redden to the east, as I await Teresa’s arrival to begin this crazy adventure, as I listen to Bugsy nom his last breakfast in peace — I will reply in three-part harmony:

      I am —

    It is now Caturday – and I SIMPLY CAN NOT WAIT to hear all about it!

    Warmest wishes and purrs for a Happy Trip, Happy Homecoming for Trex, and Happy BigBrotherhood for Bugs!

    It’s Saturday! I will be sending good thoughts your way (and Chrystal’s), hoping for a smooth trip for all and a successful hand-off!

    • nadbugs says:

      — so happy, in all y’all’s care, attention, and companionship.

      Cue that song about wind beneath my wings.

      Life seems very full and, well, wonderful at the moment. Thank you all.

  14. Just checkin’ in. Purrrrrrring that the transport is going/has gone well, and Trex is well on his way to his furrrever home.

  15. So…

    How’s Bug’s reacting?

    How are the beans adapting?

    Kitties and beans really want to know.

  16. The suspense is killing us!!
