Thursday Thirteen-About Whisper (AKA Grumpybutt)

Whisper's turn!!! (The Cat known as Grumpybutt!)

Whisper has eyes the colour of my OTW’s amber ring.

Whisper is 13 years old. He lived with someone else from the time he was a kitten until he was about 11-12 years old, but then the man had to find him a new home. My OTW took Whisper in to be my friend, but he wants to be an only cat and he’s grumpy. Which is why he’s called Grumpybutt

Whisper ALWAYS snuggles into my OTW’s right side in bed. Except when he crawls under the covers. Then he has to be on the left.

Whisper is sometimes called the Midnight Snuggle Burglar, because he WON’T purr for my OTW during the day. He lets her pet him and stuff, so long as it isn’t too much, but no purring. Except at night, in bed, after she’s turned off the light when she can’t SEE him purring as he snuggles up. Lately, he’s even taken to crawling under the covers with her.

Whisper knows when the Big One is going to bed. He sees the Big One kiss my OTW goodnight, and say “I’m going to bed” and he hops right off the couch and follows him. One of his other nicknames is “The Furry Little Stalker”

Whisper is a fierce dead-mousie-onna-string and guts hunter.

Whisper head-bonks people really hard, so he’s also called ‘Bonk’.

Whisper loves treats and ‘nip so much he doesn’t even care if he’s nose-to-nose with anycat else.

Whisper has really long whiskers and lots of them.

Whisper likes head smooches, but not if us other cats are watching.

Whisper doesn’t like the Out. Except the balcony. He loves the balcony.

Whisper sleeps in really weird poses.

Strangely, no biteys were administered by cats after the picture in the preceeding post. I thing Whisper may be mellowing out with age.

There are a lot of things to like about handsome Whisper. If he's like me, he's got a good heart under that grumpy exterior.

What a great list! Whisper is a very handsome kitty and looks like lotsa fun (when he feels like it - it's a kitty's perogative!). That Midnight snuggle burgler thing still makes my mommy laugh. Those eyes are gorgeous.
Thanks for sharing these fun facts about Whisper. He sounds like a great kitty.

It wuz furry nice of yoor mom to give Whisper a home when he needed one. Yeah, Zippy's grumpy too but she's mellowing a little now. It took her two years to allow Sadie to be near her and den I came along and she got grumpy again. She's let me sniff her a cuppul times.~Speedy

Hmm...I share that same thing about snuggling and purring at night when the lights are off.


Daisy said...

Whisper, you seem like a really great cat! I'm glad we got to learn more about you. And I like seeing the funny pose you slept in, too.

That was a terrific list about Whisper. He doesn't look too grumpy in these pictures - he is a nice looking cat.

Sabi does not like OUT either - wonder if that is a black/white kitty thing?

Kate (Pablo's mum) said...

Whisper sounds a lot like me in the purring department. I will only snuggle with Kate at night. And I only do it cause I'm cold. I never sit on her lap or anyone else's lap for that matter. I guess you could say that I'm a bit of a grumpybutt, too. But my whiskers aren't as long as Whisper's. Wow!

Whisper is a very handsome kitty. If he was an only kitty for 11 years, I can really understand why he got grumpy when he moved in with you. He looks like fun when he wants to play, though. I love the Midnight Snuggle Burglar bit.
