Monday MemeDay

I am very behind in memes and tags so in an effort to get myself up to date I am doing a double whammy today.

The first is The Three Name meme which my sissy Sassy tagged me some time ago.

In case you aren’t familiar with The Naming of Cats, in the Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, by T.S. Eliot, we all have three names! In this meme, you must link to the originator of the meme, Tara, list the following rules, and then tell us:

1. The name that the family uses daily (such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo, or James)
2. The name that is particular and more dignified (such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat)
3. What you are doing when you are thinking of the name that only you know, and will never confess (when engaged in rapt contemplation), that deep and inscrutable singular name
4. Then tag three cats to give their three names.

Here it is:
1. The family calls me MoMo and SS often calls me Mini.
2. My dignified name is Minilushka Crinita, the small kitty with soft lush fur.
3. The last will never be in print. I would be sitting on top of the back garden wall scrutinizing all that is below me when I am thinking of it.

I am tagging Socks, Scylla and Charybdis for their names.

The second meme is The Seven Useful Things meme, which Colby and Cheddar tagged me last week.

1. I am a good mouser. I would hunt and bring dead mousie for SS from time to time.
2. In this age of multi-tasking, I double up as a soft toy for SS.
3. I am a lap warmer on cold days.
4. I am SS's study buddy on long cold nights when she slaves over books and articles in the little study room in the back garden.
5. I am an excellent de-stressor with my soft purrs and gentle headbutties.
6. I help SS to finish her lunch and dinner. Without me, all that meat, cheeese and milk would go to waste. Or worse, SS might feel obliged to finish them all and get fat.
7. I am a good alarm clock. I wake SS up for breakfast no later than 5.30 am, even when she doesn't need to get up e.g. weekends and holidays.

I am going to take the easy way out and tag any kitty who would like to play this game.

Terrific memes! :) We like your names, Momo, and you are a very useful kitty! :) We are impressed with your hunting ability, since we have never caught anything that's alive. We like to act as alarm clocks too. :)

I really liked your names for the name meme. And I like finding more out about you when I read facts about you.
Letting your SS know that you are with us and we will be visiting with the Italians for a copule of days while she is busy.

What excellent memes Momo - we love your formal name!

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Hi Momo - you have wonderful names! I think we cats get much better names than D.O.G.S. and also, they don't get an inscrutable name either! The big D's are okay, some of them are even friendly, but I say that cats rule!
