Tommy and I are so embarrassed that we haven't blogged since last month! And it's already eight days into June. Also, a million years ago Russell tagged us to do a meme.

Tommy hiding his face in shame.

Thanks Russell. Sorry we've been so slow. Here are the rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 4 or 5 cats and posts their names. Then be sure to go to the cats you tagged and let them know that you tagged them. Let the cat who tagged you know when you have posted your answers.
1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Tommy: I'm four years old so I wasn't me 10 years ago.
Shilgiah: I'm seven years but I think maybe this is my second of 9 lives but I can't remember what I was doing 10 years ago if I had another life.

2. Five things on my to do list for today.
Tommy: Lay in my rocky thing-Push Shilgiah out of sunspot where she is napping-Nap in sunspot-slobber on my favorite old nip pillow-catch fly on the balcony.
Shilgiah: Snuggle up to mom and purr in her ear to wake her up-sit on kitchen rug and politely meow for morning treats-lay in sunspot-get pushed off of sunspot by Tommy-bite Tommy's butt fur.
3. Snacks I enjoy.
Tommy: Temptations, Whisker Lickin's, Goodlife Recipe
Shilgiah: What Tommy said plus TUNA Juice and Kitty Grass mom pots for us.
4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
Tommy: I'm not sure...probably buy the worlds supply of Cat Nip and share it with all my blogging friends.
Shilgiah: I would buy a huge mansion and let mom stay there (but it would be mine all mine). Then I would get all the kitties from everywhere in the world who don't have homes (or who live with mean and bad people) and bring them to the big mansion and there would be lots of wonderful kitty condos and stairs and fun things to play with and do and we'd also have all the healthy and good tasting kitty food in the world and I'd make sure we had several human maids to clean up the kitty litter and clean house so mom would have time just to play with me and Tommy. Oh, we'd also have extra staff so that all the kitties would get lots of attention and playing with...cuz I don't want to always share my mom with others. Oh, one more thing we would have a huge enclosed and safe-to-play-in back yard so we could go out and romp without worry of coyotes or other scary things.
5. Three of my bad habits.
Tommy: Biting mom when she tries to clip my nails-Biting mom when she tries to brush my fur-biting my sister's head when we wrestle.
Shilgiah: Biting my brothers butt fur-chasing my brother through the house-hiding and pouncing on my brother when he walks by.
6. Five places I have lived.
Tommy: With a man from another state who came to Albuquerque and then abandoned me in Albuquerque-In the bushes at the apartment complex after the man left-very briefly in another apartment of college boys one of whom was allergic to me-with my new sister Shilgiah and my forever mom where I live now!
Shilgiah: With a college student who moved away and left me to fend for myself-In the big park where the coyotes roamed early in the morning-then I found my forever mom and lived inside next to that park-then we moved to another place where I found my new brother Tommy.
7. Five jobs I have had.
Tommy: One very important job I have is to make my mom laugh by being such a cute big boy.
Shilgiah: My job is to ensure that mom has time to pet me and brush me and talk with me and love me because it's good for lowering blood pressure and keeping her sane in the crazy work least that's what mom tells me.

O.K. I think probably everyone in the cat blogosphere has done this meme but if by chance you have not had a chance to do it, please feel free to join the fun.

No, don't be embarrassed, it's only just over a week! It was worth waiting for that precious picture and your meme:) xxx

P.S. Do you and William's family know each other or is that a silly question? I don't know how big Alberquerquequeque - darn it, where you live - is!

It's fun learning about you both! Tommy, that was a bad man ... :0

What great stuff about you both! Lucy had another home and they did not want her. Trixie was found wandering on the side of a country road at only 6 weeks old. We are all so lucky to have found each other!

Those are good answers for your meme!
glad to see you, we've missed you!
Don't worry about Mars. After mom loves him up, she scoops him in her arms & returns him home!

William said...

Those are great answers, guys. But Shilgiah, you need to just push Tommy back OUT of the sunspot. Living with your mom first has its privileges!
