8 Random Things

Abby: The most handsome cat-vocalist Tristan Tabby Cat Longtail has tagged me for the 8 Random Things meme! The rules are as such:

1. Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. A the end of your blogpost, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their name.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

Now, let me get started!

1. When I sleep, I often squish my ears in ways that my humans think must be uncomfortable. In fact, as you can see, sometimes they even flip inside-out! What can I say, except that I am a very happy and safe-feeling cat, so I can really let go and totally relax when I sleep!

2. I do not like being left out of anything and I am naturally attracted to the most active person in the household at all times. When Ms. C's dad was here and assembling the catcases, I mean bookcases, I helped him every step of the way. And please, do not shut me out of any room. It makes me very, very sad and I will let you know -- loudly!

3. Last time I was at the vet, Ms. C asked them to clip my claws, and when the vet's assistant came in to take care of me, Ms. C (who was patting me) looked at me, then the assistant, and said to her, "Here's my monster." She could not have been talking about me. Monsters are the things that live on the stairs and come up when we turn our backs and scare us. Anyway, ever since I got fixed a few months ago, I have developed a passionate hatred for every member of the vet's office, and I hiss at them all!!!

4. Right before I have to go to the bathroom, the stinky kind, I run around the house like crazy. My mom says that most cats run around afterwards. Well, I live by my OWN rules.

5. I am a very concerned cat. Even if it's Stygia hacking up a hairball, I am right there to make sure everyone is okay. When Ms. C is feeling blue, I am by her side. Although, sometimes when Ms. C is singing around the house I get concerned, too.

6. Ms. C has a digital piano that she sometimes likes to leave on, because I often walk across it during my house-prowlings. She calls the sounds that come out "Abby's Songs."

7. Some cats chatter about birds or squirrels. I like to chatter at the rain. It just does something to me, it's so exciting!

8. Many of my whiskers are bi-colored. The begin white, but at the base they are black for about a centimeter. My mom calls this "the floating whiskers" because they almost look like they levitate from my face!

And now I will tag 8 cats and dogs to carry on the meme:

1, 2, and 3: Sen-Chan, Tom-Kun, and new Tama-Chan of The Poupounette
4 and 5: Ambrose and Grrreta of Grrreta
6 and 7: Niko and Cloud of Cats in Maryland
8: Pearl of PB&J is my Favorite

I can't wait to see what you have to say!

These are most interesting facts about you Abby. I like getting to know cats of the world. Chattering at the rain is most unusual.

Those are some really interesting thing Abby. I don't run round before I use the litter box, but I sing a little song - or maybe it's giving off a warning of what's to come. Who knows?

As for singing, yeah, I get really concerned when the Message Therapist sings. That's usually a good time to hide under the bed and cover your ears!

Thanks for tagging us, Abby! We really enjoyed reading your random list of eight things. Now we need to put our thinking hats on...

Your Pals,
Sen-Chan, Tom and Tama-Chan

Those are some really interesting things about you, Abby...we learned alot!

Daisy said...

Hahahaha! Abby, you are funny! I run around like crazy after I go number 2. I never thought about running all around BEFORE going!

PB 'n J said...

I do not appreciate closed doors either, Abby. I especially do not appreciate closed blinds. I paw machine them. "Open, Open. Open. Open. Open. Open, Open. Open. Open. Open. Open, Open. Open. Open. Open." Finally, Mom opens them.

Great list! Chattering at the rain is a tad weird. I chattered atsomething very strange this afternoon. I'll have to use that when I do this meme next week. I was tagged too.

Hi Abby, those were really interesting answers! You know what? I need your advice: As you might know I am in Norway with the other Norwegian Forest Cats. My mom back home is behaving really strangely and I wondered... How did Ms. C behave when they brought Stygia in?

Abby you are quite a character. Those are some very interesting random things. From the photograhic evidence, I have to agree with you that you "really let go and totally relax" when you sleep. You have some of the finniest sleeping positions ever. I also love that you chatter at the rain. That's so cute! I would love to hear "Abby Songs". I bet they're beautiful.
