A Week We'll Never Forget #SundaySelfie

Meows from Mudpie!

Mommy and I are lying low this weekend, recuperating after a week we'll never, ever forget.

On Thursday we told you all about being named a Finalist for the BlogPaws Nose to Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards in the Best Blog Post category.

Then that morning Mommy got an email that we'd also received a Certificate of Excellence from the Cat Writers' Assocation with the opportunity to win a coveted Muse Medallion! This award wasn't for a particular blog post like the BlogPaws honor, but for our entire blog as a whole! We were one of three recipients in the Blog/Any Other Topic alongside Pooh Hodges and Sparkle Cat featuring Summer!!!

Needless to say, we've both been walking on air all week long. Writing about cats and pursing a career path because of her passion for cats has always been Mommy's dream, so this whole week seems to good to be true. And I'm the lucky kitty who gets to be her muse.

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for taking time out of your busy lives each day to visit with us. We cherish our little blogging community so very much!!!


We're joining our friends at The Cat on My Head for the Sunday Selfies blog hop.
