Cats on Tuesday: An Award & A Meme

Cats on Tuesday Dragonheart: Katz Tales tagged me for the "3 New Things" Meme.

1. Merlin is now the same size as me, and he actually weighs a little more, since he's stockier than I am. So, despite the fact that we have two sleeping bags, when he decides to crawl into a sleeping bag with me, I get crushed.

2. I have rediscovered the joy of playing with my catnip cigar! It's a great toy!

3. Dreamies are now available here in Germany. They are very much like Temptations, but are slightly different. We have some Temptations that friends have sent us, and they are a little larger and a slightly different colour from the same flavour of Dreamies. But they are very, very similar. They probably had to change the formula slightly to make them available in the EU, since there are strict regulations concerning the production of all animal food here. We aren't fed the Dreamies very often, due to my food allergies, but we do receive them as treats after we've had our ears cleaned or our claws trimmed.

Concatulations on your awards!

I do not like temptayshuns or even those greenies that mommy bean gets for the other kittys. I am sure they are good though!

Its so cute that you 2 sleep together. The Spice Cats never sleep together, maybe because its too hot over here in Malaysia.

Oah Merlin,

It is so nice seeing you are sharing everything to each other, that is very lovely view~~~~~

I am glad you have your own style "temptations" that is very good!

And Congratulations on your award!!! So happy for both of you!!

Daisy said...

I never thought Merlin would get bigger than you, Dragonheart! But you will always be the big brother.

Parker said...

Dreamies sound dreamy! Concats on your award! You really deserve it! I would love to play with that catnip cigar, those and the nanners are some of my favs!

Isis said...

Getting treats is important, I'm glad to hear you're still managing to get a few for special times Dragonheart! The kittens learnt about treats last night, though they weren't really supposed to... ;)

Criz Lai said...

That proved that Merlin had grown up real fast :) The two of you snuggled in the sleeping bag always look real cute. Anyway, congrats on the award :)

Congratulation on the award. You look so cute sleeping together. Btw, where did you get the Dreamies? Maybe we should try them too.

Gattina said...

It seems that Merlin has become a big boy ! Even bigger than you I love the picture in your sleeping bag, he certainly keeps you warm, lol

The Meezers said...

Monty Q. Kat said...

Does Merlin hav ehis own snuggle bag?

Deana said...

The first picture of you guys snuggling is priceless...just so sweet.

Irishcoda said...

What an adorable snuggling picture! Merlin's gotten so big so fast! That's a good idea to save the treats for special occasions--the gang feels entitled to them now and get very cross with us when we run out. :P

Tybalt said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that picture of the two of you in the snuggle bag!!!!

Dreamies sounds very yummy . . . I love temptations, and I'm sure I'd love Dreamies, too. I'm glad you still get some as treats occasionally, DH!

Cecil the Cougar: said...

Dreamies sound very nice, and the package does look very similar to Temptations! Num Num Num! It is best to get Dreamies/Temptations after traumatic, life-altering experiences like baths, nail clipping, etc.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Congratulations on your award. I hope that Merlin does not sit on you too often.

The Furry Kids said...

DH, I am sorry that you are getting squished by Merlin. But I do that to EG, too, sometimes. hee hee
You guys look super cute.

Love,
Tazo

Babs (Beetle) said...

You look as "snug as a bug in a rug" but much more beautiful! I wonder if we can get Dreamies in UK. Mummy will look out for them.

Junior said...

Yep, Merlin, you have definitely grown.

Dragonheart....I bet cigar is just as good as my carrot!

I bet those Dreamies are just as good as Temptations!

Oh, you discovered the German Temptations. I´m surprised that they are different, but our cats love the dreamies too.
Cute photos ! The catnip cigar looks good !

Eric and Flynn said...

You look cute squashed in together. If Merlin gets much bigger, you'll never both fit in there. Concats on your awards.
We get Temptations in the UK but they are in cartons shaped like a cat's head.

jenianddean said...

Goodness...I can't believe how big Merlin is getting! He looks like he's squishing you!!!!

We get treats after our pedicures also.

The Devil Dog said...

andrée said...

Poor Dragonheart! I'm sorry you are squished! But perhaps you are warmer with Merlin squishing you? I hope there is a benefit to it. Congrats on the award!!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

what a great award! you certainly do deserve it.

i like whisker lickens, but am picky about Temptations. i don't get treats like that a lot cause of my allergies and IBS.

i can't believe how much Merlin has grown already! you're doing such a great job teaching him to be a wonderful Mancat like yourself.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Dreamies will work too! Momma got us a new treat that everyone can eat, Renna too. Freeze dried chicken, way yummy! Now we can share treat time. ~Queen Snickers

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Well, maybe you should be "older brother" rather than "big brother" They grow up so fast... LOL!

Kitikata-san said...

Congratulations on your award. It's very well deserved!

I wonder how big Merlin will be when he's fully grown. I know he's not even a year old yet.
