Bumbles (marmalade) and Saki (Siamese)


Saki - is the 4kg cat with the 40kg personality. He was the first ever cat I adopted. He owns me and does not like to share. Normally, he won't let any other cat sit on my knee - this photo is a rare exception.
Bumbletail Tigerbear Stickywhiskers (Bumbles) - is a stray/feral? kitten who wandered into my life a few Christmases ago. He is a very happy cat and sits and purrs away to himself for much of the day. Because he was so young when we found him, he thinks Pearl (the dog) is his mum and used to try and feed from her. ~Val

Don't you ABSOLUTELY LOVE Bumbles full name?!?!?!?!?! I wish I was clever enough to come up with something like that!

It is a great name! Look at those sweet little faces - I'd never get anything done with those little loves purring at me!

I LOVE THE NAME!!! No, I would never be clever enough to come up with a name like that!

Being that this is such a rare shot makes it all the better! My cat Oscar was raised by a dog, a Great Dane in fact, and is the same way. He doesn't know how to purr, he just makes these weird noises from his throat. He likes as if he were a dog and likes to be called into the house with a simple "Here Boy". I love it!!!

Oscar, like Saki, owns me. He gets along very well with both dogs and cats, but prefers to be an only child! Great job with your kitties, they're wonderful!

OK, I have now updated my profile. I didn't know that we could have one. So those of you who have checked, I now have something for you to read.

I, too, love Bumbles' full name. Kind of like show animals but cute, not (forgive me) ostentatious.

And Saki looks like a beautiful Siamese. Is she as talkative as I've heard Siamese can be?

Hi Bumbles! Hi Saki!

They are too cute! Saki looks a little irritated there. I'm sure because of the fact that Bumbles is trying to sit in his lap! My Benji is an orange tabby and he has that same sweet unsuspecting innocent look about him.

Rita,
Did anyone tell you about the Bagheera imposter from yesterday!?

As soon as I can get one, I'll be sending you a pic of my dad's beagles. They are too funny and full of energy. They are 3 generations actually. Molly is Muffin's pup, Muffin is Sweetie's pup. Can I get a picture of them all together at the same time?? That is the question. Maybe I can take a picture of each of them. Print the picture out. Cut each one out of their picture and tape the 3 of them together. Then scan them back into the computer and voila! Lol...I'm bored. Can u tell?

Someone commented and signed it Bagheera. Remember the kitten slept in the milk crate for it's 1st few days. Go to Mar. 27, Dexter @ TDK. Anyways, he said something along the lines of: I can't believe you kept your kitten caged up in a milk crate. I should report you to the SPCA yo beeaatchhes. So, Rosie got after him, and made sure everyone knew he was an imposter. Then he commented back saying that Rosie was an imposter. So then I got on and told him he needed to find something better to do w/his time before I reported him to the Kittenmaster. Our lovely Kittenmaster deleted his ugly comments! Yeah for our great KM. Rosie, did I forget anything. I don't remember everything word for word, but that was the jist of it. Can you believe that? I wonder if it was that same person who picked on u be4?

lol maybe you should tie THEM together, then take the picture?! I dunno, it's very hard to get a pic where multiple pets without startling them-then you get .... that LOOK. I hate the deer-in-the-headlights look. Or if they're sleeping. Not many pets are photogenic. But I do need more pics.

BTW everyone, Bryan called a while ago to inform me that once again, Gheeri knocked the birdcage off the counter... I swear, that cat.... lol

Kat: wow, maybe. too bad I wasn't around to see what they said. I don't understand why everyone goes after ME. Oh well. At least my friends knew it wasn't me! [huggles] So they just signed it "Bagheera"? lol, you would think the person would be smart enough to put in my whole name. lol. Good thing on blogger you can't do that! I mean, you could sign it, but it wouldn't come out blue, because the name would be taken. People that aren't members come out black.

That's true about blogger. A good security...step (is that the word I'm looking for?).? Precaution? Yeah, they just put Bagheera. Good thing Rosie was on the ball. She did her:
...............ahem.........you are not Bagheera.........you are an imposter Bagheera!
Something like that. Lol

I knew that wasn't Rita! I thought it was strange that she would say things like that and act that way. Yes, Rosie and Kat were on the ball!

And that person is back--I was going to flame his/her a..butt, but I can only reply once a visit. I think it's the same one who tried to impersonate me last week--and Rosie flamed her good. Back I Go. TTFN

Duely flamed--Mumma to the rescue. I know why they pick on you,GS, cuz you are the best and brightest of us all--and I waited til Rosie went to bed to say so!!

I like the idea of introducing all our pets on TDK--more reading, but much fun.

Sleep well-- keep G away from Birdie. Hugs to all--

Hi! Thanks for all the nice comments. I love that you love Bumbles name :-) It came about because it was so difficult to find something which suited him! I kept trying out different names, based on different characteristics and in the end kept them all. And he is sweet natured.

The look Saki is giving here is nothing compared to what he CAN do, if I annoy him by patting another cat, giving attention to another cat, giving food to another cat ..... well, you get the general idea. If looks could kill, he'd be the last one standing. He's not a particularly talkative Siamese :-( - I guess he figures he can communicate with THE LOOK. It must work, coz nobody messes with the Sark :-)

Anyway - thanks for your comments and for posting their picture.

You know, now that you mention it, I think someone was impersonating me too. It was the other day. Someone using my name said something about "average cat, average love" or something like that. People wondered why I would say that. I asked the other Kim to use Kim2 or something different from then on. That's how I became Kim1. I haven't heard from them again. I think it's someone who likes to stir up trouble on a successful site.

That's soo true Kim. I remember that now! He just wants to get a rise out of all of us. He just wants confrontation & attention. We just need to make it known if he comments & uses one of our names to sign in and not say anything else. What do you'all think?

I agree but am not sure it will work. They seemed determined to cause trouble. If we ignore them then people might not know that it's not us and if we comment they win. It's a catch 22. I'm not sure what to do. Maybe saying something to Kittenmaster when that person appears. Something like "hey, that's not me, it's the trouble-maker". The KM knows us well enough to know when we're telling the truth.

BTW Kat, Miss Blue Eyes is so pretty!

Maybe if we have the KM post a statement that there has been an impersonator on the site, someone using our names to leave mean comments, and to ignore this person and to know them for who they are, would help.

These two are so very cute. Too bad they don't get along too often. All my cats don't get along. Its kinda sad. Everyone is right we all know who we are so if something doesn't look right ignore it. I wasn't on much yesterday.... a lot of work.

What if, when the impersonator posts an ugly comment...whoever he signs as replys(sp? looks funny) as THe Real Bagheera or The Real Kim. And then says the opposite of what the impostor said.

9:25 AM  
Blogger Kim said...

You know, that's probably the best solution. Hopefully we won't see much of that person anymore. Hopefully he/she's seen the loyalty on the site to make them think twice before starting anymore trouble. We can only hope. Gotta get ready for an appt. See you all in a while.
