6 Unspectacular Quirks About Us

Ages ago now, Black Cat tagged us for
the "6 unspectacular quirks meme". We really enjoyed her meme because it featured some kitties she used to share her life with. They sound like they were wonderful cats. Our beans are not renovating the kitchen anymore or going away right now so we got them to help us with this
meme. We hope you enjoy reading about us.

The rules:
Link to the one who tagged you. List the rules on your blog. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks
of yours. Tag some blogger friends with links. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know
they've been tagged.


1. I am fascinated by moving water. I like to sit on the edge of the washing machine and
watch the water run in. In the bathroom I will put my paws on the seat of the toilet and watch
the water swirl. Do you think I could learn to push that handle thingie myself? Oh, and I put
my paw in our water dish just to see the water move, then I take a drink.

2. I am another one that likes to be at the door when our beans come in.

3. I love catnip and I am usually a calm and cool mancat. There is something about that 'nip
that makes me lose control. My beans won't dare to touch me then because they see the claws
are out and I can't help whipping those through the air. The beans say I am seeing things.

4. My beans say I snore when I am in a deep sleep. Don't believe it!

5. My absolute favorite toy is a bright red dot. Our beans stand idlely by while this amazing
red spot travels over the floor and up the walls. It's hard to catch. Mindy thinks it's
boring. Sometimes it's not red, just very bright, but I love to chase because it is so fast.

6. Sometimes when I am starving, okay I am hungry all the time, I have to feed myself. I am
very good at opening the cupboard and finding the Temptations bag. Then it's easy to get my
face in there and just help myself. In times of desperation, I will push the food container
off the countertop. The top almost always comes off - and out comes food! yes no kidding! I
love food so much that when sonbean was eating something yummy he shared with me. It was a
chicken strip. Mom was surprised I ate it because there was no chicken in it. She said
sonbean is vegan and does not eat meat. Ha, it was tasty with or without meat!! Am I becoming


1. I love, love tummy rubs. I can't get enough of them. What is quirky about that you ask?
I only want them from mombean. I am nervous of the male beans in the house. It's my
upbringing you know. I was rescued by a food lady and she took good care of me.

2. I am brave. Last week there were so many thunderstorms. I stuck close to mombean, but
didn't hide. Okay, I was a little bit scared. Moe, however, was no where to be found during
those noisy storms.

3. Every, yes every time mombean changes the beds in our house I am right in the middle of
things. I want those tummy rubs right then and there. Then sometimes mombean puts her hand
under the sheets and I forget it's her hand because it's so much fun to pounce and whap the
hidden moving thing.

4. When I had to go to the vet for my checkup I gave my beans a difficult time and didn't want
to go into the PTU. I don't like small, confined spaces with doors on them. Once I got to the
vet's office my beans worried I'd have to be sedated to be examined. I fooled them, ha. I was
a model of sweetness and calm. They couldn't believe it.

5. Our stairwell has a wooden railing. When the beans come up the stairs, I like to stick my
paw through the rungs and try to snag them as they go by. Hee, hee that is lots of fun, and I
am gone by the time they get to the top of the stairs.

6. Of the two of us cats, I have the loudest, and most unique purr. I can also do a lip curl
on one side of my mouth, that's a little bit cheeky I guess, but the beans think it's funny.

Is there anyone that hasn't done this meme? If not, you are tagged by us!

This is how I am going to spend the rest of today.

I want to look my best.

This female hummer was still around as of yesterday. She definitely has her bags packed though. The males have already left for the south. We will miss the little birds. Their leaving means summer is almost gone. See you in May little birdie, we'll have the feeder out for you.

Those are some pretty good quirks! We wish we had stairs and a stair rail, but we live in a ranch. Rats.

Those are good quirks! We love to watch the water in the sink too!

Yes, we are sad that the hummers are leaving too. We had a couple hanging around here but we think they are gone now. :-( Mom's gonna keep their feeder out though, just in case any more come by on their way down south.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Moe, you have a lot in common with Sunny. Sunny's Daddy says Sunny snores, too. Sunny says "no way". Also Sunny was tagged ages (and ages) ago to do this meme. Still not done :-p

I snore too, Moe. My mommie laughs about it all the time.
