My Boy is Back and Meme

Oh what a wonderful life it is, the decoration is nearly done, all the tiles are up in the kitchen, the birds are in the garden and D'boy is home at long last! :) I've missed him so much and now he's home and all is right in my World... Soon he will be rested and the toys will come out again and I can play with them, oh how I have missed the Lego! ;)

Other than that I have been tagged for a meme by Black Cat, so seeing as I'm in such a good mood today I thought I'd do it! :)

The rules: Link to the one who tagged you. List the rules on your blog. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours. Tag some blogger friends with links. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know they've been tagged.

1) I have a real passion for Lego and love nothing better than running round the house with some little Lego man in my mouth, while D'boy chases me to save his poor little Lego man from his fate! ;)

2) I love to eat sweetcorn, it's my fave and I'll even leave meat to get to one of those sweet and tender niblets! :)

3) I'm mostly forced to sleep alone, none of the other cats will sleep with me even... All this just because I snore really loudly! :(

4) I love my belly, so much so that I like to show it off all the time and keep my belly fur down to a bare minimum so it's far more visible than it would be if I let all my black fluffs grow all over it! ;)

5) I love to nip the seams of Mummy's jeans and trousers, (one of the reasons she often wears skirts I hear. I even do it to Dad's occasionally, but as yet he hasn't chosen to wear skirts! ;)

6) I love teddy bears and sleep with them as often as possible, well they don't complain about my snoring so why not?! ;)

These are all elements of what make me unique and different from those Abys that Mum loves so much. Honestly she'd be lost without me and my own special ways! :)

I'm tagging my buddy Yao-lin as I know he has some amazing traits to share with you all! I have also tagged that lovely ladycat Miss Peach as I'm sure she'll enjoy it too! :)

Mancat Monday Meme

Well it's been an interesting weekend here, Ramses and I had a peaceful day on Saturday after being served breakfast at the proper time for once. Mummy & Dad took Isis out for the day to make it an extra good and restful day for us mancats, so even if Ramses was a bit of a whiny baby about missing Mummy and 'sis it was lovely to have so much peace and quiet! :) When at last they came home they bought home piles and piles of the yummy Swedish cat food I told you all about a while back - so I forgave them for bringing Isis home again! ;)

That nice Mrs. Oz from the The Cat Realm tagged me for a meme all about my name, this is great 'cause I love things about me! ;) Anyway here's how the Name Game goes:

What is your name?
Tigmut'hep, though I'm called Tigs or sometimes Tigger

If you could change your name, what would it be?
Tigmut'hep Ruler of the World

What is your pet's name?

Ramses (even if he doesn't accept this fact)

If you could change your pet's name, what would it be?
Slave (but I fear that'd cause a riot!)

What is your brother or sister's name?
Some may consider Ramses and Isis to be my siblings, but it's not true!

If you could change their name, what would it be?
As I have said Slave for Ramses and Isis would be Gone... :)

Now I have to tag as many people (or critters) as the letters in my new name!
Eeer I think there are some real advantages to going by the shortened version of my name, Tigs!
So that's 4 letters...

Hopefully the following will have as much fun as I did playing the Name Game:
Kimo & Sabi

Far Away Family Friday...

As some of you will remember my boy is off on holiday in Canada at the moment, much to my annoyance I might add...
It seems I have to time share him with Garfie his Canadian cat, whether I want to or not! :(

So the Lego is packed away and no one wants to play toy cars with me, what's more when I decide to sit on Mummy she fidgets way too much! Plus she's just a little too tall to give me the room I require to sleep at the foot of her bed - a good 3ft is all I ask for, but she moans that her legs go numb if she's forced to sleep all curled up in a ball. Honestly if they're that numb she can't feel them, so what's the problem?!

Anyway as you can all tell I'm suffering from neglect and have abandonment issues, so when my boy phoned Dad last night to wish him a Happy Birthday I jumped onto his lap and head butted the phone until he got the message and told my boy I wanted to talk to him. So there I sat on Dad's lap with the phone held to my ear and purred at my boy as he said nice things to me. It seems Garfie is not as good a playmate as me and will only play toy cars for 20-30 mins before wanting a nap, and believe it or not he has no passion for Lego! I mean what is Lego without a cat to help take your little men on wild adventures? With me by his side my boy's Lego men live a life of great daring, often grasped around the neck, head first in my mouth as I rush off into the distance awaiting my boy to come and mount an intrepid rescue operation! :)

At least I hear that it's now only both ears and all my claws until my boy comes home and by the time Dad starts working again next week it'll just be all my claws - from then on it's an easy countdown until he's back where he belongs and my toys will be out again! :)
