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!
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.
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?
