blogger-recognition-awardWe’re happy to tell you that we received the Blogger Recognition Award from Johnny , of Pets Overload, about ten days ago.

It’s always pleasant to receive one of these blogger-to-blogger awards, and it’s a nice way to let our new readers know a little bit more about us.

Here are the rules :

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to his blog
  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers

Johnny, Beau, Walker, Twitch, Flub, and Blub, thank you for giving us this award !

How did The Swiss Cats start ?

Inspired by Mr Bumpy, his very first Internet buddy, our Angel Loupi founded the blog The Swiss Cats in April 2012. He wanted to share his adventures with the world, spread some Swiss cat wisdom, and find pals.
Step by step, our goal has become clearer : we want to educate and entertain our readers ; we speak about topics like behavior, health and safety, and we share many anecdotes inspired by our daily life. Since 2013, The Swiss Cats began to post more regularly. two or three times a week.

Our advice to new bloggers are :

First : have fun !
Be true and trustful to your readers. Always.
Learn and make friends : join communities, ask questions, respect copyright stuff and other fair blogging rules, and visit and comment on other blogs.
Oops ! That’s more than two pieces of advice !

Fair zu Pfoten Award

Fair zu Pfoten AwardWe are not finalist for Nose-to-Nose Awards, but we are proud and happy to have received the Fair zu Pfoten Award on behalf of the Hermit. He asked us three questions :

  • What animals do live at your home, or of what animals do you take care ?
    We are two cats, and we live with two humans. Claire always lived with cats.
  • How did you receive animals, or where do they come from ?
    We adopted our humans while we were still kittens (Zorro at the beginning of 2013, and Pixie at the middle 2014). We met them thanks to common acquaintances.
  • Are you vegan or vegetarian ?
    Oh no, that would make us feel sick ! We are cats after all… But we appreciate some fresh grass from time to time.
