My new friend Dinah gave me the Honest Scrap Award! And so did some more new friends, Ash and Pinky!

Here are the rules:

"When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows who he or she is. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including ones who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with ‘Honest Weblog.’ Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"

Okay, here are 10 honest things about me.
  1. I do not like fish.
  2. I have two grey furs. Please do not tell anyone.
  3. I have never climbed a tree but I have climbed the fence.
  4. I fell off the bed once.
  5. I can woof like a puppy.
  6. My favourite place to sleep is under the doona between mum and dad.
  7. I hide under the bed in the spare room when there is thunder.
  8. I take my food out of my bowl and put it on the floor to eat, sometimes.
  9. I bare my teeth at dad when he annoys me, but I don't make any noise.
  10. I refuse to stand on the red rug in the bedroom because it looks suspicious.
I don't know who else has already been tagged for this so if you want to play along, please do! Leave me a comment so I can see your 10 honest things.

Huffle, I have never climbed a real tree, either. One day, I hope I will.

Thunder said he will try very hard not to scare you if you come back to visit again. And Phantom doesn't like the color red either. Red hat or red shirt - he will run and hide.

We don't see your grey hairs, you must have been imagining them.

Word verification - allys - spelled wrong but definitely true.

You woof like a dog? Huffle you sure are a funny cat.

Hi Huffle! That's a very good list - now I know a lot more about you. I had to look up doona - that sounds cozy, all right!

See ya!

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

Those were some interesting honest things Huffle. It was cool getting to know more about you.

Mickey's Musings said...

Kate (Pablo's mum) said...

You can woof! No wonder you're an Honorary Husky.

Misha said...

Apparently we cats can't see the colour red, so that could be why you don't like the bathroom mat.

Ozzie the OZmonster & Zowie said...

I wanna hear you woof. What's a Dona? Kelly say it's a comforter or blanket. I am just not sure.

By the way, I cant climb a tree or the fence, but I have fallen off the bed a few times.

Check out my 10 things a few blogs ago.

We also had to look up doona.
doona - 3 definitions -
1. Doona is Australian slang for quilt or blanket.
It was 7º so he decided to walk around the house wrapped in a doona rather then put clothes on.

2. doona A doona differs fron the quilt, eider-down and duvet in that it has a removable, washable cover thus eliminating the need for cover sheet and blankets.
The word is Swedish implying that it is filled with down, although the great technical advance was that it was actually filled with non-allergenic polypropeline padding. The name comes from an advertising campaign in the 1960's in Australia by the furniture company, Ikea.
"Now at your Ikea store, the latest for the bedroom - the doona! Just the thing to go with your futon."

3. doona one of the funnyest words in english history, along with omnibus and fork

So then we had to look up duvet:
A duvet (pronounced /duːˈveɪ/, from the French duvet "down", IPA: ) (or continental quilt or doona) is a type of bedding — a soft flat bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or a combination of both and used on a bed as a blanket. Duvets originated in rural Europe and were made from the down feathers of the Eider duck, known for its usefulness as an insulator.

We all voted to ask you to use easier words that we don't have to look up you smartypants (look that on up).


Stella said...

Cool list, Huffle. Lets talk about the red rug, though, what makes you thing it is suspicious?

I would certainly like to hear you bark.


(angel) Grrreta and Fam said...

Congratulations on your award! That red rug sounds very suspicious. You are very smart to avoid it.

Mason Dixie said...
