2 Meme Tuesday

I was tagged by my new friend TT for the Name Meme.So here goes.

Actually the story is rather short.When Mom adopted me from the Vet's office and took me home ,she needed to find a name. She had a young nephew everyone called Ricky. The simple sound of that name struck a chord.Mickey was the name she chose. I like it.It suits a House Panther,Mancat.

Now as a lot of cats have done this, I tag any cat that has not done this yet.Just let me know so I can come read it.

I was also tagged by the wonderful Yao-Lin for the "Seven Things Meme"

The guidelines for this tag:1. Link to your tagger and post these rules

2. Write some facts about yourself: some random, some weird, some just plain fun.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)

4. Let those 7 people know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

The challenge is to keep it interesting without making the reader think “Um, too much information…”
Seven things about me…

Mickey 1. I simply loved to be brushed. When I hear Mom brushing her hair,I come running and plead for my turn.I always get it too.

2. I have trained Mom to get me grass and feed it to me one blade at a time.

3. Mom can't have flowers.Since there is greenery in the bouquets, I want to eat it, and the flowers.( Sorry Mom)

4. I will stare at Mom when she eats ice cream to make sure she does not forget to let me lick the bowl.She eats flavours I like.

5. I stand in front of Mom's monitor if she ignores me.( I mean ,really Mom)

6. I like to climb. The TV is on a shelf and I climb up there to sleep since it is warm.

7. At night,Mom leaves the back deck light on.That way,I can watch the bats flying around to eat the bugs. Boy do they ever move fast too!!


1. I am a tortie and Tillie is my littermate. We both have round faces with big eyes.

2. I am polydactyl. I have extra toes front and back.

3. I like to pick on Tillie, she hates it, and Mickey (only a bit though).

4. I also loved to be brushed and get scritches.It's like a body massage.

5. Mom likes my reow,reow instead of a regular meow. It's just what I do.

6. I like to crawl under any type of covering, like sheets,blankets,mats.It feels safe under there.

7. I have black whiskers on the right side and white whiskers on the left side of my face.


1. I'm the cute one.My fur is silky soft. Softer than Mickey and Georgia.

2. Mom is my 2nd Mom. My (and Georgia) first Mom was an older lady with cancer and she went to the Bridge.We are named after friends of hers.

3. I have to be in the kitchen! I have to help Mom get things done.I like to help.

4. I love to sleep in the sun in a box.( I think you know this,heehee.) Any box will do.

5. I have black fur with a tiny bit of white at my throat and a bit on my belly.

6. I like to sharpen my claws on the doorframe.Mom said she will get me another place "to do that"! Well,the frames are old and need to be replaced!

7. Mom says I still have my baby meows( I'm 4 years old). I say it's a girly meow(Mom,I don't squeak! )

Again, I will ask any cat that would like to do this to please do. Just let me know by leaving a comment in my blog. My brain is too fuzzy and I don't know who is left to tag( oh crud!)

Ciao for now!!

Hi Mickey, love your and your sisters' answers:)
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I think some cats thought I was having a winge, but really it was supposed to be funny because I think these strange things are hilarious! They make me laugh. I have lots to learn but am making some slow progress. And guess how I got my nickname... from the first cat in my adult life that I was privileged to share my life with:)and I would love to give a forever home to another black kittie should s/he choose me:) xxx

Oh my goodness...you all are so beautiful. Mickey - I too love brushes. My mom brushes my face every day. I have her trained very well. It sounds like you trained your mom very well also. Tillie, you remind me of Huggy Bear - big beautiful yellow eyes and his meow is tiny also. And Georgia - how neat that you have white whiskers on one side and black on the other.

I enjoyed learning more about each of you! Mickey, you have your mom very well-trained to feed you grass! I also like to lick the ice cream bowls. Georgia, I like to burrow under coverings too. It's warm under there. Tillie, I like to sleep in the sun too. :)

None said...

OH Georgia and Tillie you have such beautiful round eyes! I have never tasted ice cream but I have put my face in some yogurt cups before :)

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I had one white wisker on one side of face, now another grow in white on other side. Bean does not know if this is because I getting old or not since I do not know how old I am. I think I did the name thing before, it it is on my PetsPlaces page: http://www.petsplaces.com/bladesgal17/

Thank you for visiting my blog. Black Cats is best Cats!

Starbuck and Torrey said...

I love the name Mickey! Great to find out how he got his name!

Oh Tillie, Momma says I have a baby meow too! And I think it is very smart to stand in front of the monitor. I was just doing that.

We playeds along with the name meme.

Daisy said...

Those are some interesting things about you three. I wish I could get my Mommie to feed me my crunchies one piece at a time, like your grass blades.

Georgia, it is very beautiful how you have different colored whiskers on each side of your face! That's special.

Tillie, I have baby, squeaky meows, too.

Milton said...

Mickey, I love being brushed, too! And Georgia, your colors are so lovely -- and Tillie, I have very silky fur, too!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Jimmy Joe said...

Those were great answers! I did that meme today, too. I love ice cream, too, but I don't get it too much. Momma gives me coffee cream every morning, though--I wrote about that! Your whiskers are super neat, Georgia.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

sammawow said...

We loved learning about all of you. We both enjoy being brushed like you. Thanks, we will take your suggestion as a tag and let you know when we get our answers up. Now we are still trying to get our Meow Like a Pirate post ready!

Purrrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow

Unknown said...

I do not like to be brushed like the two of you do. I cannot stand to have anything touch my back. I will give the bitey to anything that tries it whether it be a hand or a brush!

Sasha said...

Hi Mickey, I was glad to see you on my blog. I have put a link to you. I like grass too. One of my favourite things.

Christine and FAZ said...

I'm not convinced about brushing. I had before brothers and sisters who quite liked it but I've never really been into it. FAZ

Laura said...

I still have my baby meows too! And I still remember when I did not have any meows. When I first started meowing 5 years ago, Mosaic Lady used to say to me all the time: "Sadie, remember when you didn't have any meows?" She can be dense and irritating but I try to humor her since we only just got to try Temptations this summer and I don't want her to forget to keep them well stocked.
