Thursday 13 - Nice Things

It's ASPCA day and I am going orange for it!

There are lots of nice things all around. Sometimes you have to look a little harder for them, but they are there. Here's 13 nice things that I discovered this week!
Mommy seeing something so silly that it makes her snort Diet Coke out of her nose!


My orange brother Rudy in a rare, quiet moment in the sun.


Me trying not to get fired on Wozog's Cat Apprentice Contest! If I win, the money goes to Cat Friends Helping Friends - Which is a very nice thing too!

Sunny gave this award to me - over two weeks ago! Thank-you Sunny, that was very nice of you! Sunny's Mommy takes very pretty photos of him (and his gravy), and of his siblings.

Cecil thinks I am Pawsome! I think he's pawsome too! The Absolutely Pawesome Award was created by DaisyMae Maus and the Feline Americans. I'd like to give this award to Icon Baxter Bentley who just adopted a new sister - I think that's pretty pawsome!

Sweet and gentle Marilyn gave this award to me. It was started by Ariel. Isn't it pretty? I think it is and I am very honored that Marilyn passed it on to me! I am giving this to Rocky and the crew at Artsy Catsy for all of the hard work they have done to help kitties in the Blogosphere.

The weather has been a very nice for the last few days. The birds (and yes that was Mr. Cardinal singing for Mrs. Cardinal yesterday) are all over the place and so are the squirrels. There is so much to watch out of the windows!

The sun has been out a lot too! Sun baths are very, very nice.

We get to go out on the deck for a little while in the evening when Mommy isn't too tired. We stand by the upstairs door and crrrrryyyyyyyy for her to let us out. We're pathetic, but it's nice to get to go out!

It's nice to get chicken treats when Daddy grills. We cry for that too. And yes, we are pathetic when we do that as well!

It was also nice to win a round of TENT WARRRRRRS! I beat Rudy the other night, yup, I did!

And last but not least, it's nice to be here in the big house in O Hi O. I am safe and happy and loved. I salute the ASPCA for trying to help other animals be as lucky as me!

Smooches!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Those are some wonderful things on your T13, Parker. We're pathetic, too. In fact, we've got our cute little pathetic faces down cold. Mom's a total sucker for it.

We bought the ASPCA's scrapbook, so now Mom's gonna have brain pains figuring out if she can do anything with it!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Congratulations on your awards! They are very well deserved. :) We are glad that you are getting to go outside on the deck!

We aren't American, so we haven't gone orange, but we did support the ASPCA by buying a digital scrapbooking kit made for them. We also support a lot of local animal charities.

Wow! you beat Rudy at tent warrs? That's impressive, cuz Rudy's a pretty big mancat. Those are all very nice things you listed.

The Meezers said...

oh those are some very wonderful things Parker!

DEBRA said...

Parker
That was a gorgeous picture of Rudy. It looked like one of those old world master paintings.

It's really nice to see "good news". Momma gets so tired of watching the news on TV because all they report is bad stuff. She says that they ought to be more like kitties. We know what's important! Concentrate on the good things in life.

Concats on all of your wonderful awards.

PB & J said...

That's a super T13 Parker - all nice things!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Ahhhh Parker, those really are nice things. Sometimes us cats with forever homes don't realize how good we have it.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Congratulations on all your awards! They're very well deserved.

That's great that all of you are getting out on the deck, and getting fresh grilled chicken out there, too! That's almost like a party! All you need now is cold beverages.

Regarding the contest at wozog, please make sure to remind us when voting occurs. I only go vote on the site's contests when a cat mentions it. I want to be sure to continue to NOT vote for you. I read what was posted there today and I'm just rolling my eyes.

The Furry Kids said...

Parker, those goldens were VICIOUS. They came bounding right over. To our yard. BOUNDING. AND PRANCING. AND SMILING THEIR DAWG SMILES. It was terrifying.

TT said...

Good things every kitty has reminds Mom about Orange Day, she didn'ts know!
