Nickname Meme!

I'z been tagged by My Sweety, Marie, to take part in the the Nickname Meme. This is how it works:

*Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.

*List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you.

*Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged

Real Name: Champion Myleenus Sir Lynxalot

How I got my Real Name: I got the Myleenus part of my name, because of the people who bred me, the Champion bit I earned at cat shows, lastly the Sir Lynxalot bit is to reflect my father's name LordoftheLynx. The Lynx part of our name is due to the fact that as a family we have excellent looking ear tufts! This is why my 'sis is really called Ladylynx - her ear tufts are a whole 1/4" long! :)

Nicknames I like: Ramses, Ramy, Ramy-boy, Puddin', Caramel Puddin', Lover Boy! :)

Nicknames I don't like: Wiffy Bum, Ramy Bum - the indignity of it all! :(

I'm tagging Yao-Lin for this as I'm sure he's got lots of nicknames! ;)

Mancat Monday...

Well I'z hadded a nice weekend with My Mummy and Dad, d'boy hadded a sleep over with one of his friends and for a bit I'z finked we was going to be abandoned as Dad took My Mummy out for dinner, but soon he bought her home again and they'z snuggled in bed with me and watched a movie! :) So I'z forgave them for leaving me for a bit and made the most of the good snuggling, including burrowing under the blankets right between them! After all it's the warmest spot in the house! ;)

Yesterday we'z all gotted to play in the run for much of the day as My Mummy, Dad and d'boy had a good tidy up of the garage. It seems that Dad and d'boy are planning on making us a kind of kitty hotel, climbing thingy for our run in the next few weeks and they'z wanted extra room for the banging and hammering stuff they'z gotta do! :)

Now I'z just heard My Mummy and Dad talking over lunch about getting the hall, stairs and landing re-carpeted and maybe the bedrooms too... Yay, I'z hearded it first and has therefore gotted my name on the list for chief snoopervisor already! ;) I'z not sure iffen they'z planning this before d'kittens are due or after they'z arrived, but I'z gotten my name down for the job anyway - after all it's a mancatly occupation and I'z all Mancat! :)

Old Fashioned - Photo Hunt

Well you don't get much more Old Fashioned than My Mummy's Family Coat of Arms. It was granted to one of her very early relatives by King James - with was many squillion years ago!

The fishy on the top is actually supposed to be a dolphin over water - this is because the family didn't originate in England, but came here from Italy in the late 1500's. With a name like Caesar I'm told it's pretty easy to trace the family back to the first member to come to this Country - he was a physician and the father of the man awarded this coat of arms. Being a physician also makes him an easy person to trace as there has been a roll recording the names of physicians in this country going back even further than the late 1500's.

This coat of arms hangs over the fireplace at My Mummy's Grandma's house in the New Forest, along with a lot of other very old fashioned but interesting prints of a famous cricket player who was also a family member. He played on the second English Cricket tour of Australia - and they won! :)

Finking Friday...

Well I'z hadded a very good nights sleep last night, all snuggled up in My Mummy's arms, with my sis keeping My Mummy's toes warm too! I'z fink this is why My Mummy never has as many overs on her side of the bed as Dad... Well that and d'fact that Dad's a beastly blanket thief! ;) Do you fink that's why I'z snuggles with My Mummy all night? Cause Dad pinches all the blankets and My Mummy would get very cold without my lovely furs to help keep her warm?! ;) I'z fink I'd sleep with My Mummy anyway, cause she feels and smells just right and makes me feel very safe... :)

I'z done lots of finking this week, since we now know that Isis is fur sure pregnant and expecting in March! I'z been finking that I might miss a few nights snuggling with My Mummy while she's helping Isis settle with d'kittens... I'z not sure how I feel about this right now, but maybe iffen I'z very good and don't upset Isis I'z can sneak in for a snuggle with My Mummy anyway! :) If not I'z going to have to catch up on my snuggles when she's not helping Isis with d'kittens... ;) But kittens grow fast, so even iffen I do miss some of my nightly snuggle time it won't take long for d'kittens to grow and need less care! :) After all they'z only going to live at home with us for 3 months or so... My Mummy says iffen Isis has a purrty little girl kitten and iffen we'z all love her lots, then maybe she'll get to stay here fur ever - I'z know d'questions I'z going to ask d'kitten before I'z agree to this! Oh yes, question number one: Does you respect the fact that she's My Mummy and I'z get to sleep in her arms at night? Iffen they'z ok with that one I can put up with pretty much anything else! :)

Now I'z fink it's time for a bit of a nap before Isis starts bugging for her lunchtime yoghurt! Oh I'z get a lick or two, but Tigmut'hep doesn't like it! ;) This means that Isis gets her snack purrty much unmolested... ;)

Mancat Monday Meme...

Well I'z been tagged by two lovely grey kitties called Gandolf and Grayson, but it's for a meme I'z already done just the other day... But since they'z also tagged my sister Isis and she's not done it as yet I'z just going to give her a helping paw with her go at this meme that was created by d'cats at http://www.petspics.blogspot.com/.

I'z hadded a great weekend with lots of snuggles, including some from that grump I'z live with, Tigmut'hep - it seems he'z loves d'kitty bed so much that he's willing to snuggle with me of an evening to get some kitty bed time! ;) Maybe he's not quite such a big grump as I'z thought?! Naaa... It's just that d'kitty bed is so soft and warm that it's tempting lure is too much for even Mr. Grumpypus! ;)

Now I'z fink it's time for a nice mancatly nap... :)

We'z all deeply saddened by d'passing of our friend Caesar... I'z finked he was a wonderful mancat, with great dignity and lotsa class. I'z just hope that I'z can one day be as dignified and mancatly as he was in everything he did... He will no doubt be greatly missed by his sister Prinnie as well as his loving family and I'z would appreciate all you kitties dropping by and letting them know that you'z finking of them at this time... Though we'z cannot make his passing any easier for them, we'z can at least let them know he was widely loved and respected here... My purrs are going out to Prinnie as I'z know all too well what the love of a sibling is like, even if Isis is only my half-sister!

Finking Friday and lots more...

Well I'z gotted lots to fink about this Friday for sure! Firstly I'z gotted another lovely award, this time from Black Cat - cause I'z make her day! :) That's so nice to know and I'z very honoured...

Then Adan gotted me to fink about the meaning of my name and look that it all means:

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.
You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.
You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

I'z purrty sure they'z gotted most of it right, though I'z not that confident iffen I'z not gotted My Mummy around... I'z go all scardy puss iffen she's not around all the time, though I'z not so bad since My Mummy boughted me Isis! :) Oh and the love of a good Ladycat has helped me too, which is why I'z not only fink, but know that My Marie is totally wonderful! :)

With all of dis in mind I'd like to pass on the You Make My Day Award to the following 10 kitties, who always make me purr:

My Marie - She always makes my day, 'cause she loves me! :)

HRH Yao-Lin - His evil genius is quite awesome!

Daisy - Her sense of fashion is outstanding!

Miss Peach - Her ability to love and care for everyone is inspirational!

Caesar & Princess - They both show that growing older is not something to worry about!

Chase - All I can say is Wow that's one brave cat!

Skeezix - His love for Mao inspired me to snuggle with Tigmut'hep for the first time in ages!

Kimo & Sabi - For their recent show of brotherly love as well as their blurpy girl love!

It's so exciting to get to tell you all that we'z been granted the Breeder Prefix Lovelynx (cattery name) by the GCCF, so all of Isis ickle baby kittens will have Lovelynx as the first part of their names like I'z got the registered name of Ch. Myleenus Sir Lynxalot and Isis has got Mikkar Ladylynx - you see our Sire was GC Myleenus LordoftheLynx! :)

New Meme!

This meme is created by all of the kitties at www.petspics.blogspot.com The rules are, you have to post who tagged you and link back to them and to us! :) Then you have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animals.

What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?

1. I'z would find a way of getting My Marie to come over here for a snuggle more often! Maybe I'z could get one of those Star Trek transporter badges for her collar, so I'z could beam her over when ever I'z got the urge to snuggle! :) Or Maybe I'z could get her cloned and leave d'clone with her Mommy... ;)

2. I'z would get my paws on lots of green papers and buy My Mummy a bigger house and get a bigger bed for her and Dad! I'z need more room to snuggle with My Mummy you'z see and I'd also learn how to play with d'alarm clock so I'z could have longer bed snuggles too! :) Iffen I'z just gotted her a bigger bed there wouldn't be any room left to move in their current bedroom...

3. I'z would start up a major farm business growing d'nip and raising chickens. Then I'z would make dem into chicken 'n 'nip kittyfood with lotsa yummy gravy... All d' leftover feathers could be used to make feather wand toys, maybe I'z could get a top scientist to make d'feathers naturally 'nip scented too... :)

we is gonna tag:

My Marie - 'cause I'd let her get away with anything she wanted! :)

Miss Peach - 'cause she'd probably do something nice... :)

Yao-Lin - 'cause he's probably an evil genius! ;)

Good luck and enjoy coming up with fun and unique Thing You Would Do....

Just for Yao-Lin, so he can see that he's not the first or only Meezer in history to be so badly picked on by another cat! Please note Barbie-Q's pained expression, this is partly as a result of Socrates 22lb weight pressing down on her and partly due to the sheer indignity of the situation! ;)

Mancat Monday...

I'z pleased to say it's not raining right now, but it was first thing dis morning... D'Weekend wasn't bad, in fact Saturday was purrty nice, but the end of last week was horrid and soggy and really yuck! I'z nearly asked for a refund it was so revolting... ;)

I'z spent much of the time finking and reading over My Mummy's shoulder... D'Finking was about what sort of New Years Resolutions I'z should make and about what sort of fings I can teach d'kittens when they come!

So my major New Years Resolution is:

To practice more "Furgiveness" - that is rubbing up against My Mummy or Dad and applying lotsa lovely furs once I'z got over them doing something I'z not fond of, like having a pawdicure or getting my breakfast later than I'd like...

As for d'kittens I'z fink I shall help Isis clean 'em a bit once they'z not too little and I'z fink they should be taught all about the true "Ramyfurccasions" of love and how to best express love to their own Mummy's when they'z get them... I'z mean it took me a long time to learn about applying furs to ones own Mummy's clothing, especially her bestest pj's! ;) Dis way d'kittens will get a head start! :)

Belated Finking...

Well this week I'z did so much finking on Friday that I forgotted to blog about it... Well I'z had been reading My Mummy's kitty pregnancy book with her and so was doing some really hard finking about becoming an Uncle! :)

I'z been readin' all about what sort of food Isis should eat to help her percolate good healthy kittens. It seems a queen needs about 400 calories a day, or about twice as much as a normal kitty her size! Iffen you'z fink that's impressive she'll be demanding close to 1,000 calories a day once d'kittens are born and she's lactating... Dat's more like the sort of level of nutrition that d'boy requires and he eats loads! My Mummy weighed Isis dis morning to see iffen she'd put back on d'weight she lost while at Stud and it seems that she has even though she was very moody about her dinners all last week... Though for d'past 2 days she's been eating like a big piggy Tigmut'hep! ;) Heck dis morning she almost climbed My Mummy askin for her breakfast - before dat she's tried to make breakfast outta My Mummy's toes by putting d'bitey on them... So Isis is back to 3.2Kg and iffen she's got a belly full of kittens they'd be about the size of ickle peas at dis moment. By the time she's due to "pink up" (about 15-18 days time) they'd be about the size of hazlenuts! :) So you'z can see I'z had lots to fink about... Oh and d'books gotted lovely pictures of kitten development and all that, I'z lick d'pictures best of all, they'z easier to understand than all d'writing! ;)

So I'z very happy to have been awarded the Thinking Blogger Award, bestowed upon me by HRH Yao-Lin

This award is graciously accepted with the utmost humility. Thank you Yao-Lin for realizing that Meezers are not the only finking cats out there! ;)

Thankful and Thumpin' Thursday... ;)

First of all before I'z get to the thumpin' I'd like to deal with the thankful bit! ;) Thanks to Shadow and Molly for giving me a fantastic new award, it's really made my day to be able to share it with some of my fave friends! :)

This award was created by Colin and the only rule for this award seems to be that you link back to Colin as the point of origin of the award.

I woulds likes to give this too:

My Marie - Calgary, Canada

Baby Mao - Isle of Wight (aka Yao-Lin's Island), UK

Napoleon - Oregon, USA

Miss Peach (on her 15th Birthday!) - Washington, USA

Well now I'z finished being thankful I'z can get back to the thumpin'! ;) I'z just finished a really good game of thump and run with Tigmut'hep and Isis! :) Though My Mummy has taken the time to point out the fact I'z not supposed to bop my 'sis too hard on account of her peculating kittens... So I'z tolded My Mummy that I'z getting in all the bopping I'z going to want to do for a bit before Isis starts looking all lumpy and bumpy and full of kittens! Apparently that's not what My Mummy meant for me to do, so I'z just going to have to settle for bopping Tigmut'hep senseless - not that he's gotted much sense to start with! ;)

Apparently I'z also turning into an expert cover crawler and bed squirmer! It's good to know as I'z take pride in being able to wriggle my way between My Mummy and Dad at about 6am for a good hour or so's snuggle and warm up... In recent weeks I'z found I can dig my way beneath the covers and wriggle and head butt My Mummy just right to make her start cuddling me, but not fully wake up! Dis I might add is a very valuable life skill that I feel as a good Uncle I'z gotta teach all d'kittens in good time... ;)

Saturday, 5 January 2008

Super Saturday!

Oh I'z so excited as My Mummy, Dad and d'boy are going off in a bit to collect my 'sis! :) They phoned My Mummy yesterday afternoon and said she could come and get Isis when ever she wanted to, cause she'd been doing the ickle baby kitten making dance all day... It seems my little 'sis has turned into a demanding ladycat! ;)

Anyway My Mummy arranged to go get Isis today just before lunchtime, so she'll be home in time for her dinner tonight! Heck I'z may even be nice enough to leave her a little of my breakfast for when she gets home... Oh and Tigmut'hep's missed her so much dat he's taken to sleepin' in d'big, huge, massive luxury cat carrier! There's him tellin' everykitty he's such a tough nut and d'Boss, but really he's a big old mushpot! ;)

Finking Friday...

Well it's my first Finking Friday of 2008, Isis is away making ickle baby kittens and I'z just gotted out of my warm patch in d'bed between My Mummy and Dad, under the red chenille blanket with My Mummy's arm around me for security and added warmth... I'z fink I'z a pretty lucky cat on the whole! :) Though I'z missing d'sis a lot... My ears are even starting to feel like they need a clean! ;)

I'z fink My Mummy and Dad might be able to go and collect Isis sometime over the weekend, 'cause My Mummy gotted the phone call she's been waiting for from d'nice people at Silversmoke Abyssinians and they'z tolded My Mummy that 'sis has been doing all she needs to do with Dan to come home with a nice big belly full of kittens! :)

My Mummy's tolded me that she's got to do some shopping for kitty stuff later today and I'z fink she knows I's after a big comfy snuggle spot for d'sofa like she used the mattress from our luxury carrier for over KissMouse while d'rest of it was folded up and in d'loft. You'z see I'z not sure iffen I'll get to sleep with My Mummy for a few nights when d'kittens is due and just arrived so I'z need to make previsions for d'future! :) It's vitally important that I'z get a soft warm patch to sleep in iffen I can't have My Mummy every night... She's also gotted to look at some big collapsible pet crates that will do nicely for an enclosed kitten playpen - when they'z big enough for one of those My Mummy will give dem our old igloo beds for sleepin' in, though I'z hear she wants to wash of all the lovely smells and furs first! Surely dat's not natural...

Oh well I'z fink it's time I demanded a breakfast and gotted Tigmut'hep to wake d'boy up! ;)

Wednesday, 2 January 2008

Wanton Wednesday...

Well what a Wednesday I'z had! First of all My Mummy was running round the house like a nutter getting bits of paper together, packing a picnic for her and d'boy and getting me and Isis into d'big huge luxury cat carrier...

First of all she droved us to Sally vet and I'z gotted a little worried for a moment that I was going to have a shot of something yucky, but all Sally vet did was tell me how lovely I was looking! :) She's right about that you'z know! ;) She tooked Isis off for a moment and stole just a little bit of her bloods to do a "Snap" FIV and FeLV test to make sure Isis was fit and healthy to be a Momma cat. She then wrote My Mummy a little official letter to tell her that she was and we'z all headed off to Kent where Silversmoke Abyssinians are located. My Mummy said it was good on the road as it was pretty much clear all the way and only took us a little more than 1 1/2 hrs to get there...

When we gotted there My Mummy carried us all into d'house in d'carrier, I remembered d'smell of d'house as I lived there for about 2 yrs, when I was a Stud cat myself. I'd talked to Isis on d'car trip and explained about how she had to act iffen she wanted a nice belly full of kittens and so when we arrived she wasn't worried. D'lady and man who used to own me haded a good look at Isis and with My Mummy decided they'd see how she liked Grand Champion Silversmoke Dan Dare for her first time. My Mummy, d'lady and d'boy tooked Isis down to see Dan in his Stud house and putted her in d'queens house that's attached to it, so they could talk for a bit and see how they liked each other! Well Dan tolded Isis she was d'most beautiful Aby girl he'd ever seen and she tolded him nice stuff too (but that she could never love him totally as she had her heart set on Napoleon) this didn't bother Dan at all, so after only about 1/2 hr My Mummy, d'lady and d'boy went back to the Stud house and opened the connecting doors and made sure that they still liked each other now that they could touch each other... My Mummy tolded me she was a little nervous for a moment, but Isis was not and carried on talking nice to Dan and so everyone haded a cup of tea and a biscuit and talked about cats and I'z gotted fussed and tolded I'z still very beautiful and how they was so happy to see me loving My Mummy so very much! :) Once My Mummy and d'lady and man were happy that Isis and Dan were getting on well together My Mummy putted me back in d'car with d'boy and all the paperworks she's haded to drag along and we'z drove home... Again d'roads were good and it didn't take much over 1 1/2 hrs, but My Mummy said she was so pleased to get it all done today as they are forecasting snow in parts of the UK tomorrow and Kent is likely to be hit badly! :( Even though My Mummy's well used to driving on snow she says most drivers in the UK aren't and the roads are therefore not that safe in snowy conditions... Hopefully if it does snow it'll have melted again before she goes to collect Isis! :) I'z don't fink I'll go along for dat trip as Isis is going to smell like strange Mancat and might be a little moody, so My Mummy will give her a good clean with a dry bath cloth before they leave and make sure either d'boy or Dad are with her so someone can keep Isis company...

In d'meantime Tigmut'hep and I'z going to make the most of the peace and quiet of not having a wanton girlycat in d'house with us! ;) Oh and make sure I'z get lotsa snuggle time with My Mummy too... :)
