A big thank you!

It's me, Austin! I've been allowed back in my own blog YAY! What a relief! The Staff's turning into a bit of a Moaning Minnie if truth be told. Come on! Chillax baby! Take a pill!!


I just want to say that I am cock-a-hoop.  Yep, my hoop is indeed cocked that so many folk now like my facebook page. It's now reached ..... runs to see ..... 119, nearly double :)

Ok, I know I'll never reach the dizzy heights of megastars like Sparkle and Glogirly who have thousands of fans and acolytes, but for this little Welsh unwanted stray, who was found inside a car engine, skinny and starving, badly injured and covered in grime and dirt, *sound of violins* it does my old tuxie heart good to know that later on in life I can add a little joy to the lives of various kitties around the globe and their hairless bipeds!

Thank you to everyone that gave a plug and bludgeoned encouraged their friends to click the like button. I promise that I will hardly ever post anything and clutter up your newsfeed.

Now it really is about time I showed my appreciation by listing some awards that have come my way in recent days weeks months.


from Nerissa


from Nellie and from Kitties Blue I received a star for my blog of the year award, but as I can't remember how many I've already received, I'm rounding it up to six ;)


from Kitties Blue and Miss Nylablue (no relation!)


from Miss Nylablue

Thank you all so very much :)

Are you still with me? *Hangs head in shame* I am really sorry I managed to accumulate so many without thanking the kind bloggers who gave to me! And even now I think I missed a couple! Now I know there are rules. Mouses! There are always rules. But as I don't want to detain you any longer I will just employ my specially devised Award Equation which has been adapted from Einstein's lesser known Theory of Thankability..


several awards + good friends = glad heart

  8. Concatulations on all your awards, Austin! And don't bemoan your humble beginnings - I wrote about a cat today whose beginnings are even more humble and tragic than yours, and she is now a famous kitty who appears on magazine covers and helps people!

  50. Congratulations on your awards Austin! We think our Mama needs to borrow Einstein's lesser known Theory of Thankability since she has a few awards piling up as well! And remember , in all things in life, it's not quantity that counts...it's quality , and we think you shine sweetie!

  51. We love you Austin no matter what. Sorry we haven't had time to comment much and really miss blog hopping. It's the downside of growing but I try to to do a big blog hop twice a week. The biggest blogs have few comments like Catsparella etc. On Facebook,it's not about numbers unless a blog is monetized like some of us larger ones and then it's a different kettle of fish or sharks.

  52. Wow well deserved :-) hope all is well with you Austin x
