Nickname Meme and Award!

We Ballicai are continuing to send love and purrs to Prinnie, Rosemary, and all of precious Caesar's family -- our hearts are with you at this sad time.

Yoggie, my brother, gave me such a sweet award -- the Bloggers of the World Award!

Thank you so much, dear! I'm touched and honored. I'd like to pass this award on to Caesar and Princess's Happy Place -- a true blog of the world. Such lovely kitties and a lovely family, who touch so many. Caesar will never be forgotten.

And my friends Miles and Sammy Meezer tagged me for a fun meme about nicknames! Here are the rules:

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.

Okay, here goes!

1. My real name: Marilyn MonREOW, and I go by Marilyn. As you can guess, I was named after the famous actress, Marilyn Monroe. Why? Well, I'm blond, I'm sweet, reflective and pretty, and the camera loves me. *smile* I love my name. I come when I'm called.

2. Nicknames I like: Little Miss Mary-lynn, Duallipot, Dually, Kittypie, Cutiepie, Sweetie Girl, Powderpuff-Cotton ball Cat, Baby Girl, Beautiful Girl, Snugglebug, Cuddlebug, Lovebug, Snuggle-dy Buggle-dy Buggle-dy Bug (I'm particularly fond of this one), Little Furry Purr Girl, Little Purry Fur Girl

3. Nicknames I'm not so fond of: Dually-dually-pot-pot Head (oh so silly). Tuddlepot (Mom says I don't walk, that I tuddle -- *ahem*, I beg to differ!). Little Meaty Mariloaf (so inelegant to be referred to as a Loaf). And oh dear: Dually-ball. Not funny, Mom. Not funny at all.

For the nickname meme, I'll tag my darling mancat Mickeybear, my future sister-in-law Ariel, and my great friend Monty.

You look so charming with your reference book! Is it helpful with your nicknames?

michico*Adan said...

That is very very cute of your nickname, Marilyn~~
But, in order not let you displease, I rather just call you Marilyn, that is the safe call~~ hehehe~~

Congratulations on your award!

I notice that you're sitting on a reference book from the "New York Public Library" atop another book with "The Road" in it's title.
Are you planning a surprise trip?
I enjoyed reading your nickname meme ... and have posted mine.

You have some very cute nicknames, Marilyn. :)

We are purring and praying for Prinnie and the rest of Caesar's family.

Princess and Rosemary said...

mommie calls me q-tip. I won;t say what she called Caesar... it will just make her cry trying to think about that. Thank you for this awardie. We are honored to have it. Thank you for thinking of us.

Congratulations on your award!

DEBRA said...


You are so sweet and charming just like all of your beautiful girly nicknames.


Tybalt said...

Some of your nicknames are very cute, Marilyn! Although I agree that you should never be referred to as a "loaf" . . . you are too much of an elegant ladycat for that.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh Marilyn dear you have some wonderfully cute nicknames. I do agree with you on the loaf name though - it is ever so distasteful to be called a loaf!

Daisy said...

Marilyn, your name suits your perfectly!

Sultanfus and Guy said...

Don't feel bad my auntie calls me SATANfus.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You have a great many nicknames. Be glad you are not Puffalump. Sigh

Boy said...

What a wot of nicknames you're got!

Karen Jo said...

Congratulations on your award and how sweet of you to pass it along to Caesar and Princess. You certainly have a lot of nicknames. I agree with you on the ones you don't like. You are much too elegant to be referred to as a loaf.

Humans can be funnie in giving us nicknames. I have a lot of them, too - mostly in German.
