Middle Name Meme

The other day we were tagged for the middle name meme and we promised Moki we would post it soon. And for once, we want to keep our word in the same month we gave it in. (Smile; that's a joke. We're always running behind in posting.)

Here are the rules:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.

2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name.)

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)

Merci is the most logical one to answer this meme since Jan calls her Merci Cat a lot. (Yes, we are aware Merci is a dog. Hold on. We're turning this over to Merci for the meme.)

Here are 3 facts about me:

1) Compassionate. I'm told I have a heart toward other animals and people. When our old friend Jenny was preparing to leave us, I stayed near her and kept her company. I would have accompanied her if I could have, but that's one journey we all have to take alone.

2) Attract. I love cats and before Buddy and Samaritan, when I walked Jan by myself, cats used to follow us. Cameron would follow us on our walks before he moved in.

3) Tactful. I know lots of secrets but I don't tell them. I never - well, seldom - tattle on my brothers and sisters when I know which one did which no-no.

I get to tag 3 others. Let's see. I tag - No, Percy, I get to choose this time. Okay, I'll pick Dr. Tweety. And Chance Bond and - I have to pick a dog too. Punkin. Punkin is new to blogging and I want him to participate too.

We've been reading a lot of sad news lately on some blogs.
Smudge is not doing well. He was given a blood transfusion today, but the vet has said Smudge has only a 20% chance to survive. This is not good news. We hope, after all he and his family have been through, he will make it.

We stopped by Poppy Q's and found him incensed about a guy named Yopie Alternburg who is killing any neighbors' cats that wander onto his property. This is how he repays them for allowing him to set up a flower growing business in a residential neighborhood? View the TV 3 New Zealand video. After watching that, we're incensed too!

LacyLulu and her mom are both having serious health problems. They are so good about passing on information and helping others. We missed a few days and discovered her mom was in the hospital and LacyLulu is going to the vet's for minor surgery. But at her age, it's risky to give anesthetic.

We're sorry we haven't been able to post photos and stories lately. Jan is just running so far behind it we have to post notes when we get an opportunity.


  1. Fanks for the updates on some kitties, we are purring very hard for them.

    I can tell from your Meme that you are very thoughtful and loving.

  2. That's a super meme! You sure are one nice woofie!

    Our mommy's been busy a lot too, we'll be here when Jan gets un-busy!

  3. I liked readying the meme stuff. You can find out a lot about one when they are posted. I appreciate your updates and will pray for all the little ones that are in need of help. I hope all the ones that are ill will get better and beat the odds.

  4. Praying for all the ones in need of our prayers. I hope the ones sick will get better soon. It must be so hard on the families to have a furry one ill. I liked the meme, that was an extra fun one.

  5. Thanks for visiting me during my jaunt in Ireland and share our adventures. I am now back and lazing in my sunny back garden.

    Thankyou for reminding me of the sick kitties and those who suffer through no fault of their own. I continue to purr and purray for them. We really are very lucky to be healthy, pampered house kitties with loving humans looking after us.

  6. Thanks for the updates! We are purring and purraying for everyone! We hope they make that man leave for hurting those cats!
    Happy belated St. Patrick;s Day to you, too.
    Your FL furiends,
