Tagged, and Millie's Wearing the Wig!

My wonderful friends Ariel and Ramses tagged me for a fun meme! And thank you, everyone, for your hugs and your kind and reassuring words about the spat I had with Brainball. It's been a much better day for us today. We've each been purring on our purr pads and getting lots and lots of extra beauty sleep, so perhaps we won't be as crabby with one another for a while.

Mickey, darling, I have become very fond of this position on the new receiver. It's so nice and warm up there, and the warmth makes a Full-Monty too tempting to resist! Funny how this new favorite position of mine always makes Mom say "SQUEE!" and pull out the camera.

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Mom and Dad didn't know me then, but I was a young girlcat, close to MaoMao's current age. I still had plenty of kitten in me and was less contemplative than I am now... I did more playing than poetry-studying.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

I was only a few months away from showing up on Mom and Dad's back porch and finding my forever home.

Five things you like to eat:

Stinky goodness, any and all flavors -- yummy in my tummy! I am normally a very quiet cat, but at stinky goodness time, I holler the loudest and most frequently of any of us Ballicai, even MaoMao (and that's quite a feat!).

Tuna, oh dear me, how delicious!

Temptations, especially the salmon flavor, mmmmm...

My malt hairball remedy -- goopy but scrumptious!

Did I mention stinky goodness? Oh, how I love to eat...

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:

"I Got You, Babe" by Sonny and Cher *winking at Mickey*
"The Rose" by Bette Midler
"Your Song" by Elton John
"Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers
"La Gloria Eres Tu" by Luis Miguel

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

Build a glorious white house for me and Mickeybear with crystal catwalks, fragrant flowers, green grass gardens, and all the stinky goodness we could possibly eat

Build a bigger house for Mom and Dad so they could have more kitties and supply the kitties with all the stinky goodness they could possibly eat

Buy a whole island and designate it Cat Country -- all the kitties who don't have forever homes would live there with a least one loving human apiece to dote on them, plenty of human staff to see to their every want and need, and all the stinky goodness they could possibly eat

Supply every home who has a kitty with all the stinky goodness that kitty or those kitties could possibly eat

Buy up about forty trillion tons of stinky goodness (Mickey, do you think we could eat that much together? *wink*)

(Did anybody notice a theme there?)

Five bad habits:

Shredding the paper towels in the kitchen

Getting crabby with my sisters when they startle me (I'm a very sweet natured cat, but because I'm partially deaf, I startle easily)

Jumping on the counter when Mom is cooking

And really, I'm not trying to be a goody goody, but those are the only bad habits I have.

Five things you would never wear again:

I can think of only one thing: that awful *shudder* (dingleberry)... oh my, I am embarassed now...

Five favorite toys:

Cardboard boxes
Coffee Stirrers (all of us Ballicai are renowned slayers of coffee stirrers)
The stretchy-boingy monkey that hangs from one of the doorframes
Catnip mice (ahhhh, 'nip...)
Mom's bras

Five kitties to tag: I will tag Mickeybear (handsome mancat half of "MickLyn" (*giggle*, an adorable term courtesy of Anastasia) and I'll tag any other kitty who wants to play (I think Mickey has already been tagged, but I will take any excuse to touch his beautiful white fur -- a tag is as good an excuse as any!).


And look here, Darling Millie is wearing Anastasia's pink wig! Doesn't Millie look stunning. Pink so becomes her!

Hi Marilyn,

It seems me and you have somethings in common too.I love the songs you picked yet I haven't heard the last one.Plus your island sounds wonderful
your such a sweet kitty.I also admit
I've played with my mom's bra also,
maybe alittle to rough cause I ripped it so now she hides it.Yes Millie looks very pretty with the wig...Hugs Ariel

Dear Marilyn,
Well ... you certainly are a colorful character! Your mom's bras ... and (ehem) a dingleberry.
You are enchanting!

Gretchen said...

If you bought a whole island none of the kitties would have to worry about litter boxes, would they.

Millie looks cute in the wig, too.

Hugs and purrs my friend.

Marilyn that's a very cute picture - I didn't know your beans found you only an year ago - I'm glad though that you found a great home with MaoMao, Dorydoo and Brainball - I read about your spat with Brainball - she indeed is really big ~ you better avoid her!
Thanx for your great advice about the kitties :)

Ramses said...

It sounds as if you like skinky goodness times as much as I go mad for bikky times! ;)

Daisy said...

Cat Country sounds like a wonderful idea, Marilyn. And I think it is very good fashion advice not to wear a dingleberry. Those went out of fashion last season.

That's a cute Full Monty! :D

Marilyn, I just discovered you had your own blog! I have heard of you over at your brother MaoMao's, but didn't know you had yer own blog.

I liked learning more about you with this meme.

Great tummy shot Marilyn! It will probably send Mickey straight to the freezer. Really good meme, we learnt a lot of good stuff about you.

That's a darling pose, Marilyn! I hope you become a millionnaire!
