Meme and Gingery Wednesday

Seven Things Meme: I was tagged by MoMo for this meme! These are the rules:
* Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog
* Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
* Tag 7 random people at the end of your post & include links to their blogs
* Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK, I don’t think of myself as being particularly random, but here are some things about me that you might not already know:

1) I get my teeths brushed every night. I have yummy poultry-flavor teeths-paste.
2) Momma cuts the claws on my front paws once a month or so. The back paws are off limits, though.
3) I hate the evil carpet-eating machine. It is loud and scary and it goes after my precious furs. I run and hide on the sheet shelf in the closet when Momma drags it out. I figure she can’t change her sheets and vacuum at the same time.
4) I stare at Momma in the morning while she eats her Bean crunchies, because when she’s done she puts coffee cream in there for me. I love having cream after my breakfast crunchies. I don’t understand why Momma wastes good cream in her gross coffee.
5) Coco and I wrestle almost every night. She makes growly noises and lunges at me, but then I WHACK her on the butt, and it’s really funny, hahahaha!
6) I knock on the window screen when I’m ready to come in. I don’t like to be outside for more than a couple of hours at a time, tops, because I get lonely after a while.
7) I like bread. Momma makes breads all the time—muffins, pumpkin bread, corn bread, rolls. I like to lick them. Crackers, too, and English muffins, and…mmm, you get the picture. The best? Bread with butter on it!

OK, I tag Sunny, Olive Oyl, and Rascal, and the Ballicai Chairman Mao, Brainball, and Dorydoo, and Tiger Lily.

So, since it’s Wednesday, I thought I’d show you a good example of my gingery fluffness:
I bet your Beans are sayin’ right now, “Oh, I just want to scrunch that fluffy ginger-and-cream sweet-bun!”, right?

Well, believe it or not, Momma is leaving me for 5 days, so I am going to be seriously massage-deprived. She is going to a place called “Phoenix,” for a so-called “conference.”
I can’t stand it!

Oh sweet Jimmy Joe; you will be just fine when mamabean goes off, we'll stop by to share a hug and headbutt and nosetap each day...

Dragonheart said...

I'm sorry to hear your mom is going to be leaving you. I enjoyed learning more about you through the meme. Once a month claw clipping? You are lucky. I get mine done twice a week, front AND back.

Fluffy, the one who came before, used to knock on my mom's screen to come in. I thought he was the only one to do that. I've never had bread before, but sure sounds yummy.

I'm sorry your mom is going out of town.

Hang in there, Jimmy Joe! Your mommy will be back before you know it. I love creamer, too, and anything sweet. I bet I would LOVE pumpkin bread!

And yes . . . my mommy wanted to cuddle your floofy gingery-goodness when she saw those pictures.

DEBRA said...

Oh JimmyJoe

We can't stand the idea of our fellow ginger buddy being alone...Ping says he will come over and visit you! We just loved your fluffy photo.

Thanks for sharing those very interesting facts with us. We love milk too and have no clue why Mom puts it in coffee - yuck! We are sorry that your Momma is leaving for a conference. Beans should stay put!

The Cat Realm said...

Very sweet pictures of you! You can teleport over when your Mom is gone and you will be actually very close to her - we live in Tucson, which is just a couple hours drive (with the big loud metal boxes) from Phoenix!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

You get your teeth brushed EVERY night! Wow, you are brave! My Mum tried to brush my teeth with that poultry toothpaste and I runned away.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Oh my gosh! What beautiful pictures of you. Especially the first one. You look like you need to be picked up and cuddled. Soooo adorable!

Daisy said...

I keep reading about cats who get their teeths brushed! I think it is a very good idear, but I will not allow it. I get my clawrs trimmed about every two weeks (whenever my Mommie notices they are getting too sharp).

The Furry Kids said...

It was neat to learn those things about you. We get our claws trimmed about once a month, too. Momma thinks it should be more. :)

MoMo said...

Hi JJ, we have quite a bit in common and so does SS with your mom. They both waste good milk in that murky stuff they call coffee. They both leave us far too long at home and go away on conferences delivering papers. Why can't they get the newspaper deliverymen to do that? SS is going to Cambodia next month to do one of these deliveries.

The Crew said...

Hahaha! I stare at my Mom while she eats, too. Lots of times she gives me a taste.

We can not believe that you get your teeth brushed every night! We NEVER get ours brushed. We have the kit and all, but it makes ML gag to consider it.
So now we all have to go to the fur doctor and risk anesthesia and minor surgery for her convenience.
We also can't believe that you let your mom leave you.
We never do that, either.
You make ML want a floofy ginger in the worst way.
We might have to block your blog from her view.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Yoo should stay here while yoor mom is gone. You and Sadie can have some buttered homemade bread effury morning (Sadie is a buttered bread nut) and den some 1/2 and 1/2 dat mom gives Sadie and Zippy and den my mom would be happy to give you a massage. After dat you could either nap wif us or go outside wif Zippy. Den der is lunch and more massages and den play time...

Caesar and Princess said...

JimmyJoe. You have 7 very intersting things about you. I like that you get cream. We never get that. Sometimes I can drink after daddies crunchies, but milk or cream makes Caesar barf.
I never barf... well, not a lot.
Believe it or not... we are not afraid of the sucking machine. sometimes mommie sort of sucks our furs with it. we are not afraid. Mommie told us when we were kittens that she would never hurt us... we still believe her....

We are so sorry your mommie is leaving you. This is terrible.

My mommy just said, and I quote "Oh, I just want to scrunch that fluffy ginger-and-cream sweet-bun!”, You are a gorgeous kitty! I'm sorry your mommy is going to be gone so long. I'll telyport over and keep you and Coco company if you want.

PS I only get my front nails trimmed but I get it twice a month...I get my teeth brushed almost every night. Bendrix won't allow it and Mommy and Daddy don't always want to fight with him.

michico*Adan said...

I need to learn from you, I should brush more often~!!!!

Mickey said...

I really liked those facts.I hate getting mt nails done!
We will keep you company while your Mom is away :)

China Cat said...

Oh, you do have lovely ginger fluffiness, indeed! I can't imagine anyone ever brushing my teeth! But the poultry flavor sounds very good!

Purrrrrs, China Cat

Ramses said...

Nice to meet you, fanks for popping by my housemate Tigmut'hep's blog! :)

Parker said...

You sound as though your life is pretty spiffy. But when the folks leave, that's awful! Just awful!

Ramses said...

Oh I'z not sure about that toof brushin thing! :( I'z not that fond of the pawdicure thing either... What I like best is sitting in the sink while My Mummy tries to get ready in the morning and demanding a good hair brushing! There's nofink better than getting your furs all pretty! :)

Gretchen said...

Oh, I like your seven meme. I get my back claws clipped once in awhile when my mom bean can't stand them puncturing her legs anymore. I only have one claw in the front, unfortunately that gets clipped, too. That's my only weapon of mass destruction! But she cuts it anyway.

Hugs...G

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Oh dearest Jimmy Joe! I wish your mommy was not gone right now. When mine went away, I stopped eating and got very sick. Please eat well for me OK? I hope you do not think me too ungracious of a kitty for taking such a long time to return your visit. You can only imagine how happy I was to see you come cheer me on while I was so very sick. Mommy was heartbroken and thought for sure I would not regain any of my spirit and was prepared for the worst. But I was worth a small miracle. With your purrrayers and some good medicine, I have regained my strength day by day. Mommy would not have made it through her worries about me without your comfort. Each night we keep you in our prayers and wish you endless Blessings this Thanksgiving season.
Love and hugs from our house to yours, Miss Peach and the mommy
