*ahem*, I Have Two Brothers...

...but no, there isn't a new kitty in the house. There are still only four of us Ballicai.

In short? Brainball, our Alpha Cat and Fearless Leader, is a Mancat.

To find out how this painfully obvious fact was missed by the beans, go read MaoMao's post on the subject. Beans can be so dense! And they can be untrustworthy secretaries. We kitties know whether our siblings are male or female, it's Mom (and a VET) who got confused! Floofiness can obscure private parts rather well, it seems!

Oh well, Mom -- all of us Ballicai forgive you, even if we are rather amused. *smile*



Please purr for Brainball -- he's doing better but is still under the weather. And we Ballicai do love our big BROTHER, *giggle*. I was so happy to see him when he came back from the vet yesterday that I gave him a very affectionate nose kiss.

(Darling Mickeybear -- what would you do if beans mistook you for a girl?)

I read the story. It is hilarious. How didn't they know? It was sooooooooo obvious.

It is so funny to read that story. Poor Brainball, I can imagine how he must feel, "finally, finally, they realize I'm a mancat! Finally! Now I can post on Mancat Mondays!"

The wind is blowing somthing fierce outside, it's cold and we're going to get a whole bunch more rain. I wish I could send some of this rain to you and your beans.

Hugs and snuggles sister friend...G

Poor Brainball. Imagine being mistken for a girl all this time. I'm glad that his nickname is non-gender-specific, so he can continue to be Brainball.

I read that over on the Ballicai blog, Marilyn. I can't believe the first vet made that kind of mistake!

Oh that's so funny Marilyn! Getting a Mancat confused for a girlycat?! Oh my I've just got to go tell Tigmut'hep about this (after all Isis is too young to know about these things for now..) ;)

We are doing lots of purring and Momma lighted a healing candle. I think I will get a colored contact lense that is blue.

I sure do like your "new" brofur.
