Here's some more infurmashun about the Power of Schmooze:
"As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability 'to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.' Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."
Yup, we love to schmooze cuz we love to make frends...and now we are suppose to select only 3 of our frends to nominate fur diz award! This is very difficult because we think all our frends deserve this award and almost everyone has been nominated so we need to think furry hard about it and, well, we'z pretty lazy and thinking is a lot of work. Okay, we'z thinked about it and dis is what we think....all of you, anyone who hasn't been nominated already, get this award! There, now we haffent left out any of our dear frends.
We also got tagged by Chase, Peach Man, Ramses, Bogdan, editor of our favorite kitty news paper, the Morning Scratch, the beyootiful Millie, and the very beyootiful Anita, all the way from Spain for a meme....

5 bad habits?
Zippy - I have no bad habits. Shut up Sadie! Hissing is not a habit, it's a form of expression...
Sadie - hehehe, sticking my butt in beans faces...dat's it, it's the only one I have! Reely, move on now...
Speedy - Crap, where do I start? I'm a sloppy eater. I poop in what mom calls "inapropriate" places (we're working on this one) I just started doing this and mom doesn't know why. I always pee in da corner of the litter so the scraper thing gets stuck. I chase Sadie when she doesn't want to play. I get up on the backs of beans chairs fart and leave. I empty the entire toy basket and leave them scattered all over the house. I eat anything I find on the floor. I claw the curtains and drapes. I beg for treats efurrytime mom opens a cabinet door, even if I've just had some. I ask for nip at least twice a day...okay, I'll stop here, but the list is long! I'm proud of being a "bad boy" sometimes. Sometimes I wish I could be better about this stuff, but I gotta be me...
5 things you enjoy doing?
Zippy - Sleeping on the big bed. Sleeping on dad's office chair. Sleeping on the padded stool on my Gizzy kwilt. Sleeping in the soft grass by the naybors basement window. Beating the snot out of Speedy for no good reason.
Sadie - Playing wif my sparkly balls. Playing chase wif Speedy. Sleeping on my Gizzy kwilt. Talking to mom. Having my tail gently pulled and rubbed!
Speedy - Playing wif Sadie. Playing wif baby kitties (until they get bigger and attack me!). Sleeping on my Gizzy kwilt next to the couch while mom and dad watch tv. When Zippy lets me near her, once she even let me sleep on da bed wif her! Having mom here all da time, it's great!
5 things you would never wear again?
Oh, I think we're in agreement on this one - water and those stupid reindeer antlers dad puts on us at Krissmouse! We won't wear clothes - EVER!

Zippy - Eh, not so much...okay, daddy, he's a grate toy!
Sadie - I only have one favorite toy, my sparkle ball. But mom hasta flatten all the sparklies on it first.
Speedy - No Sadie, what about the fev-ver butt mousies we chase all over? Oh, she sez she only does that when I throw them for her to make me happy. Well, my favorite toy in the world is Sadie! Then in order, my spunjball, the oktopus, fev-ver butt mousie and mom.
