Meerkat Family Portrait from Zoolatry

you can see how well my furs blend in with the desert landscape. mommy and daddy named me meerkat because of the color of my furs, and because of the sounds i make. i don’t really meow, i prefer to make chirpy and trilly sounds. when i was a kitten, i had a really long tail compared to the size of my body, and i like to run with it straight up, like meerkats doing their war dance. my tail is still especially long, and is very useful for whapping. ๐Ÿ™‚

(i am still learning how to stand on my hind legs. it takes lotsa practice.)

a little while ago, i was tagged by the nice kitties at meaouwy troops for the middle name meme. i thought it would be appropriate to post my meme with my family portrait.

Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.

2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don’t have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother’s maiden name).

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged.)

i haven’t been given an “official” middle name, but daddy and mommy call me “meerkat girl” often, so i decided to use girl for my middle name meme.

g: great, gentle, gorgeous

i: intelligent, incredible, internet-savvy ๐Ÿ™‚

r: reserved, rambunctious, regal (hey, they don’t call me “queen of the kalahari” for nothing)

l: lady, loving, lovable

so now i need to tag some friends. i tag:

adan, lego, & michico

and if my brothers want to play, i tag panda bear and padre. (mom made me do this. sigh.)

thanks for tagging me, meaouwy troops!

That is a great image! So CUTE! Empress makes what momma calls her meerkat noise. It is actually called a chortal, a sound exclusive to the Egyptian Mau. It is a trilling noise she makes when she is really happy. You really look like you have some Mau lineage so you may be chortaling too! ~Queen Snickers
