My First Award

I am so thrilled; my friend Harry from Cherry City Kitties has nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award.

The last few days, I have not been feeling quite myself  (Mummy has been rather concerned - she even mentioned the V-E-T at one point), so this is just what I need to cheer me up!!

Thank you so much, Harry.

Seven things about me:

(1) I am called Rainbow because I am pure white and white is composed of all the colours of the spectrum;

(2) Two of my favourite foods are cheese and ham;

(3) I am an indoor cat living in an old house with lots of cosy spots and plenty of hiding places;

(4) I like to attract Mummy's attention with a gentle chirrup and seldom meow loudly;

(5) My ears are odd - one 'cat' ear and one 'bear' ear. The 'bear' ear results from the removal, about a year ago, of a nasty growth.

(6) I am rather shy and prefer a quiet life (which is what Mummy and I enjoy together nearly all the time);

(7) I don't know when I was born so my Official Birthday is my Gotcha Day and I also share Mummy's Birthday (but more about that another time ...).

Now 15 nominations:

Forever Foster  (for Fui, Suey and Lishy - my first blogging friends)

Hannah and Lucy 

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties


Fuzzy Tales

The Chans


Angel and Kirby

Katnip Lounge


Jan's Funny Farm




Sparkle the Designer Cat

all of whom are amongst those who have welcomed me to the Cat Blogosphere.

The rules for accepting this award are

(1) Thank and link back to the sender;

(2) List seven things about you that readers may not know;

(3) Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.

Looking forward to learning more about you!!

My Gotcha Day - Two Years

Thank you for all the good wishes - it is lovely to meet you all and make so many new friends.
I had a super day full of treats and lots of cuddles and snuggling up with Mummy.

It was two years ago last Friday that I came to my forever home.

My first mission was to explore the house and find some good hiding places!! I gave Mummy one or two frights during the early days but she soon learned that I could usuallly be tempted to come out for food especially if there was a treat as well.

Life was quiet and peaceful (and still is, most of the time), so I settled in quite quickly. Good food (Mummy soon worked out that my favourites are chicken, tuna, cheese, ham, smoked salmon and prawns - no, I don't get them all the time, but I often find something special in my food bowl) ensured that I put on some weight - good marks from the dreaded V-E-T!!

My fur was rather matted when I arrived but Mummy gradually sorted that out and these days I even enjoy being combed - I put both paws on her shoulder and purr the whole time!

I think of all the abandoned kitties and woofies out there and hope that some of them will be as lucky as I have been.
