I'm publishing an extra post this week.  Need to...  in order to catch up.  You see, a couple of weeks ago - maybe even more 'cause as you know, time flies... just like the birdies - something happened. 

I had been tagged and I didn't even know it.  Can you believe it?  You'd think that a cat like me - one with two adorable healthy ears like mine - would have heard it when Caren & Cody over at Cat Chat said "you're it!"  But I didn't...  sorry...  the peep even checked my ears for mites.  Nothing there.  I just didn't know there was a game of tag going on, I guess.  That's the only reason I can think of.  Thankfully, Caren & Cody let me in on it.  Boy, did I ever feel silly.  Don't tell anyone but...  I'm blaming the peep.

So, there are questions to be answered...  ten in all.  Here goes....

#1.  Describe yourself in seven words.
       cute, cuddly, sterling silver tabby, formerly feral
#2.  What keeps you up at night?
       I live with eleven other cats.  Someone is ALWAYS bound to be up.  The next thing you know?
       There's a tail in my face or a paw on my head.  It happens.
#3.  Who would I like to be?
       Hmmm....  that's a tough one.  All in all, I have a pretty good life.  I can tell you who I wouldn't
       want to be.  I wouldn't want to be a dog.  No offence to dogs but, they have to use outdoor
       facilities.  Yes, even in bad weather.  And I live in Canada where we have winter.  I like to use
       indoor plumbing.  Yup, I'm talking about the litter box.
#4.  What am I wearing right now?
       Uhhh....  my fur coat?
#5.  What scares me?
       People I don't know.  I was feral so I love and trust my two peeps but other people...  not so
#6.  The best and worst of blogging.
       The computer!  I've learned a lot about using this thing the last couple of months but there's still
       so much I don't know.  And it's not like the peep is much help.  She's worse at it than me!
       Eventually, I'll figure it all out.  After all, I'm a cat...  and cats are smart.
#7.  The last website I visited.
       Hmmm...  I went over to to ask for some advice.  Had to borrow the peep's
       account.  She's called orientallily there or something silly like that.  Anyway...  Brian, from
       Brian's Home, had received something called 'silver vine' and I was quite intrigued.  It's some
       kind of super duper extra potent nip.  And those of you who know me, know I love the nip.
       If I'm gonna get the peep to grow it, I need to know what the stuff is.  She thought it might be
       some kind of kiwi vine but wasn't sure so, I trotted over to myfolia to ask the experts.  Someone
       there is bound to know.
#8.  What one thing would I like to change about myself?
       Oh, I would so love to have opposeable thumbs.  Can you imagine the things I could do with
       opposeable thumbs?  I'm pretty sure that with opposeable thumbs, I could take over the world.
#9.  Slankets, yes or no?
       I have to admit, I have no idea what a slanket is.  Neither does the peep.  Best I can figure
       is that it's some kind of blanket and it's slanted 'cause it's falling off a peep's lap.  I'm pro
       blanket but I'm opposed to falling off things so....  I guess I'm sitting on the fence on this one.
       Oh!  I'm pro fences!
#10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
       Oh, Cody and his mom are the best.  They're just great.  And I love the fact that neither one of
       them got upset when I didn't realise I had been tagged.  It was so kind of them to think of me in
       the first place.  I'd hate to think I had upset them.  But they're so great, they weren't upset at all!
       How wonderful is that!!!

The following is a list of blogs I'm gonna tag...

It's a Wonderpurr Life
Mario's Meowsings
Bengal Business
The Island Cats
Brian's Home
Ginger Jasper
Cat With a Garden

Now, some of you may have played this game before.  If you don't want to play again, that's okay.  It's also okay if you'd rather just go and have a nap or some treats.  I understand...  really.
But...  if you wanna play...  well....  then...  YOU'RE IT!
