Bert - Nominated by Pearl, Jake and George

All right, there's been a lot of debate around here as to who we should nominate for "Best Fur Sibling of the Year".

Jake thinks it should be him, since he's the oldest. Pearl thinks it should be her, since she's the princess and therefore the best. George thinks it should be her, because she's the biggest and the rowdiest.

So that's why we're all going to nominate Bert. That's three paws in the air for Bert! Bert is a great brother for both kitties and woofies.
Wow, thank you - It's an Honor, just to be Nominated!

Here are all the reasons that we think Bert should be the Fur Sibling of the Year:

Jake - I Nominate Bert because he is a good "ManCat In Training". Like my big brother before me, I'm training Bert to be a good and courageous ManCat - and he is doing a very good job. He is very brave outside, but smart enough to stay close to home. He's a good bird and mouse catcher, and is also good at catching the chipmunk that lives in the yard (but it always manages to get away - it's a smart chipmunk). Bert is always kind enough to let me wash his head, and always lets me eat his left over Stinky Goodness. When it's time to play "Run through the House as Loud as Possible" he's always the loudest and the fastest. And best yet, he loves to play Laundry Basket Wrestling, one of my favorite games!

Here we are in the Laundry Basket (a little snuggle after the wrestling)

Pearl - Bert was adopted just a few months after I was so we're a pair, a happy kitten pair. We are each other's favorite playmates. When we were still small enough to fit, we'd sleep together in the kitty hammock (now I sleep in the hammock and he sleeps above me in his basket). Even though he is younger than me, he always looks out for me outside - we sit together on the porch watching all the birds and squirrels go by. We also team up to make a great hunting team, we catch tons of mice for Mommy (and she squeals with excitement when she finds them!). When we play inside with the stringy toy he always takes turns with me so that we can both play. Even though he's bigger than me now he's always fun to play with, and always stops when I tell him he's being too rough.

Here's Bert and Pearl hanging out in the hammock (Bert was still a baby)

George - Bert is my cat. Mommy has her cat (Pearl, okay well I guess they are all hers, cause she's the Mommy, but you know what I mean), Daddy has his cat (Jake) and I have Bert. Bert will only give Headbutts to me, not even Pearl or Jake. He comes into my room and rubs me and starts to purr (something he doesn't do very often - and never for Daddy). Bert's not just a cuddler either, he's my play buddy. No matter how rough I get he just lets me slobber all over him - I can paw him and put his head in my mouth and he never complains (though Mommy and Daddy yell A LOT when I do it). Bert never smacks me in the nose or puts the bitey on my ears, just one of the many reasons he should be Fur Sibling of the Year!

Here were are cuddling together.

So here's three cheers and at least three votes to Bert!!!

Bert sounds like a purrfect fur sibling! Brave too. We sure don't think we could let a woofie put our heads in his mouth, no matter how sweet the woofie was. Purrs!
