Mancat (in Training) Monday
Hi peoples! I'm Ziggy, the youngest new member of The Kitty Krew. The people at the shelter named me Thor, but The Mommy said that just wouldn't do here at my new home. We have Rules to follow here, y'see, and Thor didn't work at all. All the long-time members had a name ending in 'y' or 'ie', and it wouldn't do for me to not fit in, right? So now I'm Ziggy. It's okay, I didn't really know the name Thor all that much anyway. I like Ziggy, it's a fun name and I'm a fun cat.
And I've got some great nicknames, too. Zig; Zig Zig; Zig Zag ('cause I can be running across a room and then turn on a dime to avoid something - or just because I want to!); Zoom Zoom (for much the same reason! MOL); Z-boy (that's from Zoolatry!); Ziggy Boy; Zigster. Sometimes I'm not really sure what my name is exactly... MOL
I'm a brown/black/gray and white tabby mancat in training, 'cuz I'm still less than a year old. I was born in late April, so I'm not yet 7 months but more than 6 months. I guess my momma kitty had me and some siblings unexpectedly and her bean couldn't keep us kittens and so took us to the no-kill shelter, where The Mommy came and rescued me. I was the first one to greet her and say hello and lick her fingers when she came into one of the cat rooms at the shelter! (See how smart I am??)
The Mommy says that in many ways, I'm a typical kitten; I'll be playing really hard and running and going, and then WHAM! Down I'll plop for a nap. Well, hey, playing and running and going wears a guy out, y'know? But I'll have her know, I'm anything but a typical kitten. I mentioned how smart I was at the shelter, to get her attention quickly, but see what else I've already learned in my 2 weeks here? I've learned to play with the nip nanner...
I've learned good grooming habits...complete with cute pink tongue!
And I've learned about the importance of the comfy hairy blankies!
I dare say that most typical kittens aren't near that smart. Ha!
Anyways, I look forward to getting to know you kitties and other aminals and peoples better in the days to come!
The Mommy is currently owned by 6 beautiful, lovable, fantastic kitties that make up The Kitty Krew -- Bugsy and Sassy are 6.5 years old (siblings), Roxy is 4.5 years old (half-sibling to them), Pixie is 3.5 years old, Gypsy is 1.5 years old and Ziggy is just at 1 year old. The Mommy loves her kitties, and they love her right back!
