Padre tagged me for the Nicknames Meme he created along with JB of JB’s Small World. We have also been tagged for a meme by Poppy Q and Meerkat was tagged by Millie. We are busy working on those memes! We’ll post those in the next few days.

Here are the rules for the Nicknames Meme:
Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you.
Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Real Name: Panda Bear

Laughing Panda Bear

Named Panda Bear Because: I am a black and white tuxedo kitty. Mom and Dad wanted to name me something to do with my markings and personality, and panda bears are cute and cuddly. (I am glad that they didn’t choose to name me Skunk!)

Nicknames I Like/Tolerate:
Bambino!
PB
The Purrmeister
Little Guy

Nicknames I Do Not Like:
Trouble
The Food Bully
Pot-Bellied Pig (Mom and Dad think they are funny by calling me something with the same initials as Panda Bear)
Poopy Butt (again, not funny, but maybe I should poop on their pillows)

Now, I tag the following kitties:

Captain Jack and Sir Dante of Purrageous Pirates
Queen Snickers and Empress of Royal Kitties
Tybalt, the Prince of Cats

Hi efurrybody!! Padre here. I have been thinking of creating a meme about nicknames. Although I have lived here with Mom and Dad for just three months, they already have bunch of nicknames for Panda Bear, Meerkat, and me.

And yesterday on JB’s Small World, she wrote about all the nicknames her Mom has for her and her sisters. So, in the spirit of cat blogosphere collaboration, this is the Nickname Meme, created by JB and Padre.

Here are the rules:
Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you.
Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

Real Name: Padre

Padre Plays Well

Named Padre Because: I am a dark grey tabby with a white patch of fur on my neck. Mom and Dad think that the white patch makes me look like I am wearing a minister’s collar. Padre is Spanish for “Father” as in a priest’s title.

Nicknames I Like/Tolerate:
Big Grey Kitty
Silver
Mr. P.
Bambino!
Puss
Padre-Man

Nicknames I Do Not Like:
Clyde (because I look like one of the kitties who came before me… named Clyde. Sometimes Mom and Dad accidentally call me Clyde.)

Now, I tag my adopted siblings, Panda Bear and Meerkat, as well as:

Miles and Sammy Meezer
Max, The Psychokitty
Buddah
Monty Q. Kat
Poppy Q

Hi efurryone! Padre here, and I am doing my very first meme! We got tagged by Tybalt the Prince of Cats and Tigger the F.B.I. Cat for the 7 Weird or Interesting Things about You Meme.

here are the meme rules:
* link to the cat who tagged you and post the rules on your blog
* share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
* tag 7 random cats at the end of your post & include links to their blogs
* let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

1. I was adopted eight weeks ago into my permanent furrever home. I used to live with someone else, but they left me on the doorstep of a veterinarian’s office earlier this year. I wound up in kitty prison for awhile, although I did not do anything wrong. Then I got rescued from prison in the nick of time by a very nice lady who enrolled me in PetSmart college. I graduated from college and came to live here.

2. I love my Daddy and Mommy very much. I am so grateful to have such a nice furrever home here.  I especially LOVE when Mommy gives me baby food.  Yum, yum, yum, it is my very favorite treat!

3.  I don’t have claws on my front paws, but I do have claws on my back paws. 

4.  I like to chatter at birds. 

5.  I like to yodel.  I especially like to yodel at 2:00 am.  Apparently Clyde (one of the kitties who lived here before who is now at The Rainbow Bridge) also really really liked to yodel.  Since Clyde and I both are grey tabbies, Mom thinks that it is a “grey tabby thing” to yodel.  (Mom was wondering if there are other grey tabbies out there who also like to yodel?  She also wants to know if you yodel if you are not a grey tabby.)

6.  I was injured a long time ago … before I came to this wonderful furrever home.  The bones on my front right pinky toe have healed a little bit out of alignment.

7.  I do some of my best sleeping on Daddy’s lap!  I do not like to nap on Mommy’s lap.

Now, I need to tag some other kitties so that they can do this meme too.  I tag:

Kelly, Lizzie, Caitie, & Nicky from It’s all Good, Chance, and Rocky et al at Artsy Catsy.

we were tagged by Tybalt the Prince of Cats and tigger the f.b.i. cat for the “seven weird or interesting things about you” meme. thanks!

here are the meme rules:
* link to the cat who tagged you and post the rules on your blog
* share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
* tag 7 random cats at the end of your post & include links to their blogs

1. i love temptations treats! i also love baby food which the mommy lady feeds to us when she is home in the middle of the day. therefore, i also like it when the mommy lady is home in the middle of the day!

2. mostly, i prefer to make what the mommy lady refers to as “chirpy trilly sounds” rather than meowing. this is part of the reason that the mommy lady and the daddy decided to name me meerkat. i have only just begun to practice my meowing, and i’m 6 months old now.

3. i was born under a porch in may of this year. i also got the eye infection that two of my siblings got. my brother panda bear lost his right eye to the infection, and our sister nod lost both of her eyes. fortunately, i have both my eyes, with just a little scarring on my right eye.

4. i am a tabby girl, with both butterscotch-gold and brown-grey stripes.

5. when i eat, i prefer to eat with my mouth open, like my namesake meerkats of the kalahari desert.

6. i like to sit on the mommy lady’s desk while she works on the computer. the lamp light keeps me warm. like my brother panda bear, i also enjoy playing with the lamp cord.

7. i like to jump very high and do acrobatics while playing the chase-the-bird-on-a-string game with the daddy. daddy is very fun to play games with!

Meerkat - The Flying Bambino!

now i tag castor and pollux of the meezer brothers and my adopted brother padre to do the 7 interesting things meme.

Hi everybody!

I was tagged by Tybalt the Prince of Cats and Tigger the F.B.I. Cat and by the cool kitties at The Cat Realm for the “Seven Weird or Interesting Things about You” Meme. I am so excited!!

Here are the Meme rules:
* Link to the cat who tagged you and post the rules on your blog
* Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
* Tag 7 random cats at the end of your post & include links to their blogs
* Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

1. I have only one eye. My right eye was stolen by a doctor when I was a wee kitten because I had an “infection”. Having one eye does not hinder me one bit when it comes to running or playing, though!

2. I was one of eight kittens born in my litter! Mom and Dad adopted two of us, my sister Meerkat, and myself.

3. I like to investigate everything I can. Once, I even investigated the indoor rain room and discovered Mommy in there!! Why would she want to get all wet like that?

4. I really like to eat. That is one of my favorite things to do. Mommy mentioned this to the Cat Bully (the doctor) the other day, and he called me “The Food Bully”. Now Daddy and Mommy have been calling me The Food Bully.

5. I prefer to eat cat food to eating treats like baby food. Of course, I show up and eat some of the baby food just so I am not left out of the fun.

6. I have found all sorts of “non-traditional” cat toys around the house here. I particularly enjoy playing with the dangly chain on Mommy’s lamp on her desk.

7. I like to chase my tail in unusual locations around the house: the landing at the top of the stairs leading down to the basement, the ledge above the basement stairs, inside the clothes hamper in Mommy and Daddy’s sleeping room, to name a few.

Now, I have to tag 7 others, but this will be a challenge, since I think many of the cats in the Cat Blogosphere have already played this game. So I tag Meerkat, and let her figure who to tag next!
