I am very thankful this Friday, because I got a Fortress Protector award from His Royal Highness himself, Yao-Lin!

This award was originally created by Tesla who said "I award this to every cat that defends its fortress and castle against evil!"

Yao-Lin graciously awarded me with this because he said I reside in a fortress with a dog and presumably have to defend my territory against canine visitors! Yes, indeedy, I try to make sure that Coco behaves as cat-like as possible. I have trained her so well that she doesn't even really like other dogs so much, preferring the company of cats. The last step of the indoctrination is to get her to say, "Cats rule! Dogs drool!" I'm not quite there yet--she agrees with me that dogs drool, but she keeps saying "Wiener dogs rule!" Apparently the drooling thing doesn't apply to them.

I would like to pass this award on to my great buddy Adan, who makes sure that Michico practices her beautiful photography skills, and who is keeping an eye on his new little brother Lego, teaching him who's boss. Great work, Adan!

I am also super thankful because Momo gave me some special glass for St. Patrick's Day at the beginning of the week!

The grass outside was all yellow and soggy this week, and this morning it is white with snow all over it again. Boy, am I glad I can put on my special glasses so everything looks green.

Happy Easter, every-buddy! mmm...egg salad...

Well, they can't be rosey colored glasses, so I guess they must be emerald colored glasses.
