WCB 101 - Meme~

Kamikaze was tagged by Sammawow (namely Sam the cat) for a meme. This is the 1st meme that we've EVER been tagged with, so we're going for it! Here are the rules: Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

So okay!

Kamikake was just a tiny yowling cat who I rescued on a busy Japanese street in 2003.

His full name is Kamikaze Kamakiri Kitty.

He was infested with fleas, which were treated, and then had hook worm from the fleas, which was gross- but was also treated sucessfully.

Kamikaze used to be very very mischevious. He liked to chase things on the television and try to break everything in the apartment. I got a water gun to spray him from my bed when he was running around and yowling, being a bad boy.

He once managed to break just about EVERY dish I owned by jumping up on the drying rack above the sink. The kitchen floor was covered in broken china. It's a wonder he didn't cut his paws up. (And that I didn't kill him.)

When I went to visit Canada in 2004, he escaped his cat-sitter's house and lived outside as a stray in a strange city for a month. I thought I'd lost him for sure. But somehow I located him within 3 minutes of starting to search for him, once I came back and learned he was missing.. He got scared away by a passerby, though, and I had to "re-find" him a day later. He was injured and so skinny, but seemed relieved to be re-rescued. I was so happy.

He's grown into a big sumo-cat who loves being brushed and petted. He's a decent cuddler and will let me spoon him for hours. I'm convined he knows a little Japanese, Korean, and English. He's a wordly cat.

The only time he's mouthy is when he figures it's time to get fed. He loves his food. He also loves his catnip toy I finally managed to find here, and carries it around, usually storing it in his carrot.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I'm going to tag Bonnie who has a wealth of cats to write about. Hopefully she'll play along and write seven things about one cat, or one thing about seven cats!

Now please skip on over to visit the lovely Sher and her kitty cats over at What Did You Eat? for this week's WCB. Cheese and cats. Seriously, what could be better?

Oh my God! I loved reading these things about Kami! And those pictures of him as a kid are just fabulous. The drama: Living as a stray for a month. The Humor: Lying in his carrot. The horror: fleas and hookworm. It's got all the colors of a great script! And you're a great mom!

I totally agree with Sher.
I will work on the Meme and post soon. Got to get back to the homeless cats and find them homes.

Hope you are feeling better, Jelly.

Do you pronounce 'kamikaze' the Japanese way or the American-English way?

Jelly said...

I suppose it's the Japanese way. What's the American-English way?

yonsu said...

Pronounced as if it was spelled "kamikazi."

Jelly said...

Ahhhhh - ok. I tried to say it different all day long - but couldn't figure out how it would otherwise be said than with the Japanese version. Do you know what a kamakiri is?

Kitikata-san said...

Oh, what very interesting facts about Kami! I am glad you found him after he escaped from the petsitter. He is just a cute boy.

astrid said...

Great list about Kamikaze! I can totally relate about the broken china - for the past week it seems every time I open the cupboard I drop something breakable! I'm so glad that you found Kamikaze after he was lost. Hope that you had a great weekend.

Katie said...

Wow, poor Kamikaze! I'm so glad he was found! He's a lucky cat to have such a loving mummy!

Kamikaze is a lucky cat! It was very nice of you to have adopted him.
A cute kitty that I'd love to kiss...
