Manic Monday: Blue

Today's Manic Monday word is "blue" ~ since I'm a Russian Blue, I thought I'd re-post this about me: Spooker.

Not The Mama woke me up from my morning nap to do this meme-thingy, so let's get this over with so I can go have my mid-morning nap. Here are seven things about me, Spooker.

1. I like to nap. The older I get, the more naps I like. I'm 14 years old. My Gotcha Day was Mother's Day, but notice how no one made a fuss about that anymore since those two interlopers came and invaded my home?

2. Until last year, I was the Glorious Center of Not The Mama's Known Universe. Then those two hellions came and shattered my reality.

3. I only eat kibble. I have a sensitive tummy, and stinky stuff is not goodness for me. I never in all my life would even sniff a treat, until we tried Temptations. Now, I even tolerate that Chloe Monster within 2 feet of me during our Temptations Treat Time.

4. Every night when Not The Mama goes to bed, I have to jump up on his chest for a chin scritch. He reads books and spends some quality time with me in order to relax before sleepy time.

5. When I was younger and more adventurous, sometimes I'd get "Spooker Marie!" yelled at me. Now there are TWO trouble makers in our house, so I'm off the hook.

6. When we lived in our first house in Dayton, Ohio, I would run up and down the stairs in the middle of the night, barking. Not The Mama says I was channeling the terriers who used to be bred in our basement. I just thought I was having my midnight crazies, but strangely, when we moved from that house - I never barked again...

7. Along with having a sensitive tummy, I have very sensitive skin. Our litter has to be UN-scented or I break out in an itchy rash, and I can't wear a collar - it gives me hives. But I am a big scaredie cat, and I would NEVER venture outside. I've never been outside in my whole entire life, except for trips to the Vet and when moving -- unless you count when I was abandoned in a shoebox on the doorstep of the Animal Shelter in Dayton. Maybe that's why I don't ever want to go outside. Not never ever.

Okay, that's enough about me. Time for another nap.
Growls & Hisses,

Mo and The Purries


  1. boy I really enjoyed getting to know you better! Happy MM.

  2. What a great job you did in between naps Spooker. You are a beautiful cat as well, but you already know that. Have a purrfect MM. :)

  3. Wow, you barked?! I wish Not The Momma would've gotten that on video. How interesting! :)

    Happy MM to you all.

  4. It's nice knowing about you.

  5. Happy Manic Monday. :)

  6. Indeed your fur is of a beautiful midnight blue ! Do you also have blue blood in your veines like I have ? If you sleep that much you can pick up the award for sleeping cats on my cat blog, lol !

  7. Sorry to interrupt your naptime, you are obviously a cat of regal bearing and gracious temperment. Back to snoozing now.

  8. Dude, channeling terriers sounds bad. Have a great nap!
    your bud Pepi

  9. i am allergic to all that stuff that smells to honey. it makes me itch and itch. like dryer sheets with smelly stuff in them and all. and i don't like stinky goodness either. maybe we are sisters???

    smiles, auntie bee

    ps: do you speak russian too?

  10. Oh Spooker, I think you are beautiful. Grumpy old kitties are my favorite. They appreciate a good nap and snuggle time. :)
    Love and Purrs,

  11. Spooker that was very interesting to learn more about you. I am sorry you have such sensitive skin. I am also sorry you now have to share your person. Still you look cozy and content.

  12. I've never been outside either because we genius kitties know that the gweat big outside is not a nice pwace at all!

  13. Come on over and check out my blue skies! Nice Monday BLUE!

  14. Spooker, I love your beautiful blue furs!

    Spooker, you have pretty blue fur...and I'll bet life really isn't too bad with Not the Mama and the two interlopers. I know that inside you're just one big softie.

  16. Hi Spooker! I know how you feel. I am 14 and my sisfurs are 4.They are very active and cute. I too like to nap more.Mom is good though. I get to have a room to myself so The girls don't bother me. I was 12 when the girls came and I am used to being an only cat.
    I hope you get spoiled lots(it sounds like you do) :)

  17. Spooker dear, it's nice to see you. We hardly ever get to hear from you.

  18. We think your fur is beautiful! It was interesting to learn all of those facts about you. Channeling terriers, hmmmm. Freckles grunts from time to time, wonder if she's channeling a piggy!

  19. Spooker, we enjoyed learning more about you! Dragonheart has a sensitive tummy too - he's allergic to chicken. But stinky goodness is better for him (venison stinky goodness that is).
