As I Was Saying...

After several years around here, I decided I should clarify some questions I am frequently asked, or discrepencies which may need clarification.

~ Why am I so dark?  Until I was two years old, I was the color that is usually associated with Sealpoint Siamese:   Tawny with dark points. I started to get darker where I had been as light as my brother, Vijay. We Siamese do change with temperature and the Seasons, but I just kept getting darker. Oh woe. Finally I was told by a Tonkinese breeder, of all people, that I was a normal Traditional Siamese. Really? Really. Perhaps this is how Jacques got the idea to research the history and genetic links of cats from our area of origin.

~ Why do I have a nick in my ear?  I also learned that ferals are often "nicked" or "notched" in one ear to indicate that they have been TNR-ed. Really? Really. Let me assure you that the nick in my ear - which is hardly noticeable unless backlighted - is the result of...rough play with Vijay? A klutzy collision with something? Whatever. It was cleaned by the cat mother and is the evidence that I am not a sissy when it comes to the rough and tumble life of an indoor cat.


Oh my, Oh my!

Simon Cowell...
Hard to Please

Enterprising, brassy and not afraid to meow what's on his mind, VIJAY is Idol-maker Simon Cowell!

There's no beating around the bush with VIJAY and flattery will get you nowhere. VIJAY calls it like he sees it, and stands firm on all fours behind his decisions. The cat definitely does not have VIJAY's tongue—some of his pals think he's bitter and confrontational, while others find him to be impawsibly hilarious. VIJAY's influence on those around him is remarkable, and he takes advantage of this fact and uses it wisely. Behind his no-nonsense mask, VIJAY is a perceptive sponge, taking in what he sees and hears around him, and then figuring out how to make it look, or sound, better.

Selket:   What on Earth?     Vijay!!!   What is this garble?

Vijay:   My Celebrity Status, of course. Where's yours?

Selket:   You know I would never enter any contest, especially something like this! Why, why, it is a parody, satire! Multiple choices for complex issues. I thought you were far above all that, and I don't mean because you are Up There!

Vijay:   But, my dear, you know that is the point!

Selket:   *sigh*


I'm it

My friend Kay has tagged me!
I am to write 7 facts about myself in my Diary and tag 7 other cats. Cats who are tagged post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to purr them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been tagged.

 1.  It may be common knowledge, but I am named after an Egyptian goddess;
 2.  I can beat up both my younger sibs if I am so inclined;
 3.  I am not a sportskit - I will demonstrate once that I can run, jump, walk on leash and all, but after that is done, I choose not to perform;
 4.  after the Power of Purr Chain, my charity of choice is Save the Jaguar XK-120;
 5.  lately I have developed a habit of biting the cat mother's nose to wake her up;
 6.  I am told I snore!
 7.  I love Catster almost as much as I love my brothers.

The lucky cats I tag are:

Little Bit

...when I shared a diary with Jacques, I stated that a diary does not have to be what you do every day and it does not have to be "Dear."

Now that the Young Fiends have a place of their own, I think I will start to write a bit again.
If I can catch him between his comings and goings, I may chat with Vijay here, too. I must think on this, however, as when Vijay starts on a subject he can pontificate forever.

Onward. I have been tagged, or am "IT" in the meme game, so here goes.
