Saturday: Farewell, Friend, and a Meme

First of all, I would like to say a heartfelt and very sad farewell to my beautiful buddy Forest, who died in a terrible accident. With both Forest and MuShue the Hero going to the Bridge, we have had a sad week.But that means that we need some cheering up, too, so I am finally getting around to doing the Quirk Meme that my buddies the Meowers from Missouri tagged me for 3 week ago!!! (see how behind I have gotten with all of this broken-computer-silliness?) Okay, here is the meme:

1. Link to the one who tagged you.
2. List the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag some blogger friends with links.
5. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know they've been tagged.
6. What's a quirk?

My Quirks:
1) I get car-sick. (Momma said this isn't a quirk, it's just disgusting, but I think that it is a charming quirk.)
2) I like doggies. I know, I know, a lot of you are saying: "ARE YOU CRAZY??? Doggies are JUST WRONG!" But I think it's important to give everybuddy at least the chance to be a buddy, and anyways--a lot of the time you can scare a doggie just by walking up to it. And scaring doggies is HILARIOUS!!!
3) I don't like getting up in the morning. Bed is comfy. Momma should sleep in late every day and then spend an hour giving me a massage.
4) I like to climb trees to show off. But I don't bother climbing trees if no one's watching. What's the point?
5) I won't let Momma handle my back feets at all. I let her give me a peddy-cure on my front paws, and teeths-brushing is okay. She can pick me up and carry me back inside, or pull me out from under the bed--that's okay. Anything but the back feets.
6) I like visiting other people's homes and apartments. It's especially fun walking into neighbors' apartments. I like to see how they decorate and what sort of a view they have from their window. And if they have anything yummy hanging around.

Has any-buddy not done this meme yet? If not, try it out! As Momma says, "Boyfriend-quirks can be annoying. But kitty-quirks are always charming."

Those are some funny quirks, especially the part about going into other people's homes! I like to sleep in, too. My Mommie gets up, and I just stay lounging around in bed.

Jimmy Joe you have some very interesting quirks, funny. We are amazed you go into other homes, we don't like neighbours coming into our home at all. We like to get up early, eat, and then go back to sleep.

We are sorry about Forest. It is such sad news for all.

But the good news is that Mu Shue is still with us. He had too much spunk and fight yesterday to send away and he's eating again.

It's fun to know more about you!

Sunny's Mommy said...

You have a very outgoing personality, Jimmy Joe :-D You visit your neighbors and you're not afraid of woofies. I bet you're not afraid of anything!

Motor Home Cats said...

We're only afraid of some woofies. Our Camie is okay and any doggies that Mom brings to us are usually okay, but woofies outside are not. But you are right, a good hiss and the woofie is usually scared and that is fun.

wow, you have great quirks! it is nice of you to give woofies you meet a chance. i'm to scared.
i like your idea for #3. mommies should spend lotsa time with kitties, especially in the morning...and afternoon...and nighttime...
