Missy - I Was Tagged...

I was tagged by Mr. Hendrix (or maybe it was Bendrix?) for 7 Weird Things about yourself, so here they are:
  1. I don't like to be touched. Period. Especially not my tail and my tummy. Sometimes, when I decide, I do like my ears scritched and my head petted, but just a bit. I've trained my humans to detect my oh-so-subtle signals. And when they don't, it's the Big Hissy! Late at night, when no one is awake, I have been known to jump on one of the humans and make love paws and purr. But if they ever ask, just tell them are nuts.
  2. I don't like stinky goodness. I love dried, crunchy food. And Temptations. But that's it. No cooked food, no canned food, no baby food, nothing. Well, I might eat a bit of a potato or a corn chip Daddy Charley drops.
  3. I have two Gizzy Quilts. The first was purchased when they first came out, made up just for me. It has orange koi on it and is very pretty. It goes in my wonderful kitty carrier, where I sleep. The second was offered for sale before Christmas. Mommie ML saw it, in shades of blue, and ordered it on the spot. I move this one around wherever I want to be.
  4. I can't climb! I was declawed before getting my forever home here. I would love to climb like KC. When I was feral, I climbed and climbed. There was a 5-story building that I climbed. There was a 3-story apartment building I climbed. There were trees and fences and I climbed those, too.
  5. I have never bitten anyone in my forever home. If they touch me or get to close, I'll start the Big Hissy and show my teeth and go for their hand (or whatever is closest). But all I actually do then is growl and lick. Most of the time, they are so traumatized by all the noise, they don't notice.
  6. My furrs mat across my lower back. I can't lie down right or relax because the mats pull at my soft skin. Dr. Smith just zaps an electric buzzy razor down my back. Problem solved.
  7. I love my Kitty Carrier. It is blue to match my eyes. It has lots of meshy windows and several zippered entrance/exits. We keep my first Gizzy Quilt, the one with the koi on it, inside. I love to sleep in it. The humans used my Kitty Carrier to take Momma Tortie to the vet and she pooped in it. It will never be the same. Thank goodness they removed the Gizzy Quilt before Momma Tortie pooped.
The official rules of this meme: (1) Link to the cat that tagged you and post the rules on your blog; (2) Share seven weird facts about yourself; (3) Tag seven random cats at the end of your post (include links to their blogs); and (4) Let each cat know they were tagged by leaving notification on their blog.

Here are my seven random picks: Yuki and Kimoko, Brandi, Napoleon, Momma Grace, Cocoa Puff, and Max. Now I'm off to notify each and every cat they've been tagged. Then I will take a nap.

Missy - it is very nice to know you. You sound similar to Cody, only he can't be touched at all.

Missy, we enjoyed learning more about you. The fur mats sound like they are very uncomfortable! We are glad we have no fur. It is too bad you don't like to be touched. We LOVE being touched!

Daisy said...

I am very, very impressed that you have never given the bitey. I do not know how to hiss or growl. But I bite all the time!

Parker said...

I bet the Big Hissy is scary! I liked learning more about you!

Eric and Flynn said...

Missy that is a byootyful pikchur of you. We don't bite either. Sometimes when I am being groomed, I get furry excited, and I grab mum's hand, but I don't bite it.

Missy, you have such incredible eyes! My mommy can never get over how blue they are.

I loved reading about you! I'm jealous of your koi gizzy quilt. I am telling my mommy to save up green papers and order me one. I think a prince should have his own gizzy, don't you?

I am so sorry about Mama Tortie and your carrier. At least your gizzy was safe!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Maybe yoo should let dem brush yoo...den yoo wouldn't get da mats and yoo wouldn't hafta get shaved. Speedy drags his Gizzy around to, he likes to nap in difirint places and hasta haf his blankie wif him.

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Missy you are such a pretty girl!

Tyler said...

Missy, when I read your post I was sure that I was reading that of my sister's Cookie's by mistake. You two are very similar. She's very good at doing the Hissy, but she also loves to do the Growly-bear noise. She doesn't like stinky goodness, yet unlike you she doesn't like the Temptations. Mom says she's hard to bribe. There is more, but I bet if I met you up close I would confuse you with my sis.

Tesla said...

You're so pretty.

i enjoyed reading your facts.

Missy, Mom said it is such a shame that you don't like to be touched, cause you look so loveable. She said she would love to hold and squeeze you. That's what I have to put up with. She hugs me and kisses my head and lets me go. She doesn't hold me to long cause sometimes I don't like it either. So glad you hold back on the bitey. Your Mom is a very nice person. So is your Dad. This picture sure does justice to your big baby blues.

Love,
Casper

Sorry this is so late Missy, but thanks for tagging me. I get mats on my back too, right above my tail and I won't let Mom trim them either!!!
