I got tagged by Tully to play Zach's "Who are you really?!" tag game, so here goes...

From Zach: "Answer with your alter ego or as yourself. 

Here's the questions just copy and paste. And tag 5 kits to play along.

 "Who are you really?"

1) Tell me your funny Christmas story.

Well, Mom didn’t really do a lot of dressing us up before we came to Catster. I mean, I had a few cool t-shirts, but that was about it. So one recent Christmas she picked up a little Santa Hat. And it wasn’t the best little Santa hat and even Nadi was very worried about the situation.

Oh and there was also Christmas at Sleepers when we were hanging 20 on Christmas afternoon. Read Sleeper's diary to find out what happened next when I was sledding on the back hills.

2) Where's your favorite hiding place when playing hide and go seek?

Hiding under beds is good, also a certain closets work well to hide in.

3) What did you dream of being as a young kit?

I dreamed of just being the best me I guess.

4) What's your favorite hobby? Anything goes.

Eating is my hobby. I also enjoy the being outdoors and I still like to lick Mom’s ears.

5) Whats your one "bad habit" that you love and your Mom hates?

Hmmm, tough question! ???

Update: I used to bite Mom's nose every morning to wake her up or even if I was just snuggling with her on the bed. Now I don't really do that anymore. I did this all of my life up until this year. And even though Mom didn't really like it, now she misses me doing that and it makes her sad I'm not biting her nose anymore...Just don't have the same energy.

6) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

I’m really a homebody and enjoy being home. All of us cats who have great forever homes are lucky and I like being right here, but it would be fun to time travel back to ancient Egypt where cats were revered.

7) What is your guilty pleasure? Food, skirts and suits or cars? What?

I’m a connoisseur of different forbidden foods. Yum, corn on the cob!

Mom had some watermelon and honeydew melon recently that I was interested in. Mom also seemed very nervous when I wanted to try some chocolate this past spring.

8) What is your favorite make believe monster? And yes girls, unicorns and fairies are included. Post a pic of this mysterious beast.

Fireworks! Hate 'em!

Not fond of vacuum cleaners either.

9) What is the one dreaded thing you have to do at home? Babysitting, taking baths, entertaining guest....what is your dread?

My dread is being poked with needles. I got poked to get my insulin for a few years until my pancreas started working again and I got a reprieve, but now I have to get poked again to get fluids for my kidney problems.

 Try getting poked everyday with a needle!

10) We are going to have coed ships this year so which ship do you want to be on mine, or Zoes. Gris will be having a small ship (more like a dingy) for all our kits to be on.

Either one... I’ll be all ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day.

My buddy Tully said I look like Keith Richards here. Yeah!


I tag...

Whoever reads my diary gets tagged.

Number 9 is my dread of any hoomans coming into the Tomcat residence. I just cannot seem to get Pops to keep them OUT! I was feral, and, well, enough said.

And that brings up Number 2
I hide under the couch. Some of his friends did not even know he has an Orangie cause I let the Brofurs come out and run interference. MOL

I love the photos you posted in your answers, Gumpy ~ MOL! I always thought you were a well dressed, stylin' Dude in your tee shirts and red winter coat. You look pawsome in your Santa hat and you are really rockin' as Keith Richards the Pirate!

Thanks for playing buddy, I loved reading your answers!

I really meant to call you The Rock Star Pirate, Gumpy. You are much better looking than Keith Richards, although he is still a great rocker. Mom loves the Rolling Stones:)

Hey! I paw at Mom's nose to get her attention when laying on her. We've got that in common. And Diamond eats corn on the's one of her stupid pet tricks..she looks like a type writer when she does it. MOL!

PS- about Talk like a Pirate Day...well it seems the girls are going to change their minds about having coed ships. I thank they want to take over the boys ship and make you guys do their chores while they lay around and work on their suntans. So let the games begin! Me and the kits are just going to be observers. Lets all sail to Egypt wouldn't that be cool??!!!

Very cool Santas hat btw but it looks top heavy.
