Foster Cat Chats

Inside Buddy Foster's World

Foster Cat Chats Nominated for Liebster award


Foster Cat Chats has recently been nominated for the Liebster Award by Amelia, the cat, and her mommy Robin at One Sunny Place .  I love to get awards and mommy says, “Thank you , Robin, for this honour. It is good to know that someone appreciates and enjoys our blog.” Robin’s blog is a diverse place. So far in October she has written about the colour purple, her cat and dog, Amelia and Shiloh,the outdoors, flowers and photographing glass. Be sure to check her out at the above link.


Just a few hints about the rules–it’s easier to just save the rules as an image, and then post the image into your post. I tried copying and pasting, and I couldn’t highlight the copy.  So, you can either type out the rules or just right click on the rules, save as an image to your Downloads file/whichever file you choose, and then upload to your Media gallery and paste into your post as you would an image.


Here are the answers to the questions Robin asked me.

1) When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging in October after attending a blogging workshop at a local digital festival.  I have always wanted to write and wordpress gave me a venue.

2) What’s  your greatest strength?

I’d like to believe I am patient which was helpful as a teacher.

3) “No one does it like me.” What is one skill or talent that you do better than anyone?

No one could love my son and daughter better than I do.

4) What is your favorite genre of books and why?

I like biography.  I love to read about other people and their world.

5) What keeps you motivated?

The desire to learn and do new things and stimulate my brain.

6) What’s most important to you in life?

My family-my husband, son, and daughter.

7) How do you define success?

I define success by how happy you are and how happy you make those around you.

8) What is your most memorable moment?

My most memorable moments were holding my children.

9) What would you change in your life if you could?

I’d change the weather in my home town.

10) What is your favorite kind of music and why?

Classic rock. It brings back memories of my youth.


Here are 11 random facts about me.

  1. I love turquoise and aqua.
  2. I have a tiny cabin by the ocean.
  3. My favourite animal is cats.
  4. I binge on Netflix.

  11. I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles.

      It’s a good idea to respond to several nominations in one one post. I Sometimes they can be overwhelming. I so envy the fact that you are attending the Blogpaws convention. Living in Newfoundland, it is a bit expensive to travel there but I am sure it will be fun and informative and i hope you share your experience with your blogging friends.
