Tag :o(

Sorry to those I tagged. I have also gone around and apologized individually on each of your blogs. I was so excited to be tagged for something that I didn't realize others didn't enjoy it. Also I haven't been paying close attention to the comments on everyone else's blog, so I didn't realize that this person who tagged me was one who had been irritating others. I promise to pay closer attention next time! It was a long tag to do anyway. So we'll kill it with me.

My first ever tag!

First I want to thank everyone for all the support with my operation and the haikus and everything.

In the comments of my last post I got tagged. I've never been tagged before so I'm very excited. Recently there was another tag going around using your 23rd post, but I haven't made 23 posts yet, so I couldn't participate. Anyway, here it goes!

1) 5 Things You Can’t Do
2) 5 Things You Can Do
3) 5 Things That Scare You
4) 5 Things You Love
5) 5 Things You Hate (we'll change that to dislike)
6) 5 Random Facts About You
7) 5 Things You Want To Do Before You Die (we'll change that to life goals)

1. I can't: open my own can of food, get Mom or Dad to believe I'm ALWAYS STARVING, make more Mattinglys (I still don't quite understand what that means but I keep hearing Mom say it), poop at will like Max, get a piece of tape off the back of my neck between my shoulder blades

2. I can: jump real high when I'm chasing feathers, make Mom lay still for ages because I look so cute sleeping on her and she doesn't want to disturb me, make a wide range of sounds to communicate my mood, sit and watch the fish for hours and hours and hours, make Mom and Dad happy just by giving them the littlest bit of attention

3. Things that scare me: the doorbell, the vacuum, people that aren't Mom or Dad, loud noises, being outside

4. Things I love: FEATHERS!!, paper towels/toilet paper (like William), watching the fish and lizard tanks, reading blogs, catnip, playing games with Mom and Dad... that's more than five, but I love so many things!

5. Things I dislike (since I don't really hate anything): the doorbell, Vet visits, getting my nails trimmed, when Dad makes me be the slowest flying cat in the world (will have to post pictures of that), when Mom stands up when I'm sleeping on her

6. Random facts: I am indeed named for the Yankee first baseman (Dad's favorite player), the pads on my paws are both pink and black, I enjoy eating fish food when I can get my little paws on it, my fur is so soft that Mom and Dad call me "Chinchilla kitty", I like to bathe Mom while she's sleeping

7. Life Goals: get in the lizard tank, get the fish to talk to me, figure out how to reach the treats (the fish food is also kept there out of my reach), overcome my fear of the doorbell, claw my way through Mom and Dad's box spring

It took me awhile to complete that... I needed Mom's help even! I was tagged by, katonia scratchalot, but there was no link or anything. Does anyone know who that is? In the meantime, I need to tag a few people. Let's see, who do I want to learn more about? I will tag: The Beautiful Stumpy Lady, Derby, Jasper, Princess Mia, and Musette. You're it!

Haikus and other news

Hi everyone. We've been busy around here. I'm recovering this week from some minor surgery last weekend. It was a terrible ordeal. Perhaps I will relive it another time. All I remember is fear, fear, fear, and then coming home, trying to clean myself and noticing something different... I'm a little, um, smaller in a certain sensitive area. But I have stopped walking funny and am back to my normal self. Mom assured me most cats go through this and all will be fine. She just wants to assure that I can't ever make more Mattinglys. She said she can only handle the cuteness of one. I have no idea what any of that means... I just hope I don't have to go through that again.

I've been keeping up with reading everyone's blogs, even though I haven't been writing in my own. I know I'm a little behind everyone else, but I wanted to write a haiku too. There are a few special ladies out there that I think should know how I feel about them. I just hope they don't think less of me now that parts of me are missing forever. They aren't much, I'm not a poet, but it was fun to try. Ok, here goes!

My first crush is an older lady... the lovely Stumpy!

Gray and white delight
With a tail so short and sweet
Beautiful Stumpy

And who can resist that playful little Maggie McKitten-Cat. She's more my age.

Small, lovely Maggie
I like her unique beauty
And her playful ways

Ok I hope I didn't embarrass myself too much. I'm not trying to start anything like what's going on with Kukka, William, and Moose. I just wanted to let two ladies out there know how beautiful and appreciated they are!
