Mancat Monday- Award!

My girlfriendcat KC gave me an award!

I'm supposed to tell seven things about myself, then pass it on to seven other cats!

1/ I have lived with 28 cats in my life (Not all at once! And some of them only for a week or two!)

I loved all of them. Except Trapper who my people wanted to adopt last year (he went back to the shelter because he needed to be an only kitty or only live with girl-kitties, but they found him another home where he could be bosscat of his OWN place), and the Orange Menesis, who bites me. (Also two rabbits, three rats, three budgies, two chinchillas and a tank full of fish, and another fish)

2/ I live really far north. On this map I live about where the red dot over Alberta is. The three other arrows are; Vancouver (left) where I used to live, Toronto (right) where I was born, and Yellowknife (top) which is as far north as my OTW has gone (but she didn't take me).

3/ I'm really brown, not black!

4/ My OTW is an artist and I'm her model. Hey! Not funny, OTW! That last one isn't me!

5/ I have MINIONS; the General Foods International IKEA-Rat Army! I still need eight more names for them, though!

These are the ones I have: HAMibal, HamiCARP Barca, Kublai CHICK'HAN, AlexHAMder the Great, BEIF Eriksson, PORiKles, HAMratio Nelson, HAMurabi, GilgaFISH, SPAMerlane, Brian BOARu, Fionn MACKEREL, CucuLAMB, SpaRATacus, TUNA Mulan, BIRDdicca, SALMONemnon, Joan of CARP, Julius CaeDEER, Attila the BAC-HUN, TURKEYtus, CharleMOUSE

6/ I'm a Viking kitty. I have swords and a Longship!

(My Rat Army sails in it!)

And this new sword is from my girlfriendcat KC! It was my Christmas Present, along with a red nip pillow, a red sparkle ball, a red ribbon and a red piece of tissue paper! It's a very special sword with runes on it (which is Viking writing, but it's also magical)!

And KC gave me a Navigation Stone a couple years ago, so I could always find my way home!

7/ I have the beautifulest, smartest, bravest girlfriendcat in ALL the world! She's my Valkyrie-cat and I wrote a Viking Man-cat poem about her!

Well-known, this girl-cat’s worth,
Her word-fame, far spoken
A golden-pawed goddess
Is she who gives me joy.

Hawk-keen out of heaven
She hunts, Bug-Valkyrie
Tortie of mousie-toys
She has taken my heart


Seven cats to Pass this on to...

Persephone wants me to pass it on to the Turkey Cats, especially Batman, so maybe they'll blog again? She misses going to talk to him!
2. Tiger, Treasure and JoyJoy, the new cats at Mickey's!
3. Tenzing votes for Mr. R.W. Emerson, because he's orange and floofy like him.
4. Cat of Nine Tales, who should have to do extra things, one for each cat! (Not seven for each!)
5. Amy and the House of Cats
6.Four Crazy Cats (SuziQCat)
and 7.The Furry Bambinos because I don't know much about the last three cat families but you visit a lot and we're glad!

That was so interesting.. I am thinking hard on other generals with ham names... HMM.. I really like Attila the BAC-hun...

Amy & the house of cats said...

Wow that is so awesome - congrats and thanks for passing it on! The viking poem you wrote for KC is great - we like viking stuff at our house because our dad is part Swedish. And our mom thinks it would be cool to go to Yellowknife because that is a good place to watch the northern lights!

Dear Jack

It is so cool to learn a bit about you because last night I mentioned your great research on Vishus Deer in a report I did to help Cats fill out their 2010 Censu Forms!

I thought that since this was an apprarently little known Breed of Vishus Deer that you might be interested, and know more.

KC also gave me the award so I know how tough it must have been to choose just 7 things, and 7 Cats! ;-D

When you click on the link in my name you can go right to it! ;-D

My beautiful Persephone,
