Nicknames

3

padre and jb of jb’s small world created the nicknames meme, and my brother padre tagged me. so here goes.

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: meerkat

Meerkat Lounging About

named meerkat because: i am a gold and brown tabby kitty. mom and dad wanted to name me something to do with my markings. they also really like to watch the tv show “meerkat manor”. mom and dad think that my markings make me look like a meerkat, and i make chirpy sounds like meerkats make. mom and dad also say that i eat like a meerkat. i take some offense about the eating part, as i do not dig up bugs or scorpions. so what if i chew with my mouth open?

nicknames i like/tolerate:
meer meer
ms. meerkat
meerkitten
little girl
girly-girl
bambina!

nicknames i do not like:
food bully (hey, i happen to be going through a growth spurt right now and need my nourishment…)

now, i tag the following kitties:

dragonheart and merlin
kimo and sabi

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
