Frootbat Friday & 7 More Things

In the photo below, especially if you click to make it larger, you can see the little bit of fur on my ears. You can also see a couple of the clear, plastic Gatorade bottle tops that I mentioned are my favourite toy (you can also see a feather-butt mousie that lost is feather-butt). A lot of you mentioned milk jug rings yesterday. I have never seen a milk jug here in Germany. My humans haven't seen any in Canada either. Milk comes in plastic bags or in cartons.

I had so much fun telling you random things about me yesterday, that here are 7 more random things about me:
  1. I am very fussy when it comes to my stinky goodness. I only eat stinky goodness that is real chicken or fish, and it must be shredded chicken, or pieces of tuna, salmon or other fish.

  2. I despise pâté style stinky goodness (which I consider mush) or any kind of cubes or chunks in gravy or jelly. As I mentioned above, I only like REAL chicken or fish pieces. None of this processed mush or chunks for me.

  3. When it comes to crunchy goodness, my humans only put a little bit in my bowl at a time, otherwise I eat it too fast and I eat too much of it, and then I vomit. As my vet explained, if I eat dry food too fast or too much of it, it then expands in my stomach, taking up more room, and when my belly doesn't have room for it, once it has expanded, it comes back up.

  4. When it comes to treats, I'm also fussy. I only like Gimpet Baby Tabs (made with milk, taurine and L-carnitine), Feline Greenies (salmon or ocean fish flavour), and ZiwiPeak Real Meat Jerky treats.

  5. At night, I like to sleep under the covers, either between my two humans, or curled up between or behind my mom's legs (she lies on her side in the fetal position.)

  6. When my humans are on the telephone, I either sit in their laps or try to climb on their backs.

  7. When I see birdies, I get very excited, and start chirping. I also move my mouth up and down very quickly. My mom has tried to capture this on video, but by the time she gets the camera out and starts filming, I've usually stopped chittering.
I tagged 7 cats yesterday, so those tags still apply if the cats haven't done their lists yet.

You can find more cats and other animals at the Friday Ark.

Are you Frooty or taking part in the "7 random things" meme? If so, leave your link below:

The Meezer Gang said...

You chirp??? That is the coolest trick, Dragonheart!

Pee Ess: Stella thinks your cute, too! Dang, she just gave me the paw and ran away...I think I embarrassed her. Purrs, Nick

Hello Dragonheart: I love learning new stuff about you. That meme was fun. I'll have to get Tiger to put his 7 random things up, too. Opps, thanks for commenting on the rock climbing adventure. Mom put it up accidentally, she wasn't finished with it yet. She thought she saved it and instead she published. She'll finish it when she gets back and then publish it again. I'll let you know. I look brave don't I. Wait till you see me at the top. I am Tuxie hear me ROAR!!! (Hee hee)
Be blessed,
Samantha, Tigger and Mom

Chase and Latte chirp, it is funny to listen to. You are an adorable frootbat who knows what he likes and that is great.

We love hearing more about you Dragonheart... it reminds us of when we were kittens.
We hope you have a frooty and fun Friday

Monty Q. Kat said...

I like bottle tops as well, but I usually send them under stove after a few minutes. That reminds me, I need to go meow by the stove and have MomBean fish them out for me.

I think you're quite the mancat!

Tara said...

I'm very fussy about my stinky goodness too. Right now, I'll only eat Fancy Feast Salmon Feast (no grain products in this one), but it must have real salmon mixed in with it. I can't stand that mush either!

Kim and Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

You are a very kitty boy. You live the life of Riley for sure! And...now that the word is out, I bet a lot of girls are going to be knocking down your door!!! You are quite beautiful you know!

The Meezers said...

i chitter at the fridgerfrator because that's where the ham lives. sammy chitters at the aliens only he can see outside.

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

I also try to sit on laps when humans are on the phone or on the computer.

You seem like a cat who knows his mind, Dragonheart.

Cheysuli said...

I love to watch birds. I've never been allowed to climb on my humans back.. hmmmm....

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Sadie still wants to know who da gerl cats are dat yoo haf a crush on. She thinks one of em mite be her but I told her she's to much of a flirt so yoo woodent be intristed...she beat me up but I'm not sher it had anything to do with that.

We love learning stuff about you! Your mommy and daddy take such great pictures of you. Mommy is jealous. Whenever she takes pictures of me with no flash by a window like that, it comes out fuzzy. She hopes for a new camera from Santa this year.
I chirp too! The beans love that doen't they? Sorry about the bomiting stuff. That must stink to not be able to gobble food down. Nice fresh healthy food is the best!
It sounds like you have a "not so secret admirer" over at the Meezer Gang. That Stella is a very pretty girl if I may say so...and a little fiesty with that "gave me the paw" stuff...
I'll bet she is good at track ball too.

Daisy said...

I like to cackle at the birds too! It's fun.

Forty Paws said...

Wow, you are a fussy eater! We do the puke thing too with R/D. The vet said it expands a lot. Maw is about to the point of not feeding it to us anymore.

We chirp too. We chatter at squirrels. They annoy us!!

If you send us your address to fortypawsATsbcglobalDOTnet then we will send you milk jug rings. You will love them!!!

Luf, Us

yao-lin said...

exclelent facts Dragonheart, I could read about you all day. I LOVE how fussy you are! Wait, I mean, not fussy, just a little pedantic maybe? Sounds like you have your humans very well trained my handsome friend! xx

=^..^= said...

I hope your Mom captures you chittering on video furry soon!

I watch the bird fly around and wait..oh... ten minutes... before reacting. But I'm cute. -Gizmo the cat (justonesheep.blogspot)

Karen Jo said...

I love your frootbat photo. I did see the little bit of fur on your ears. I like your 7 random things, too. It's always great to learn more about you.

jcfloresinc said...

Dragonheart are you awake? I think I might have to put my Mom in a loony bin. She's been trying to get my rock climbing adventure on all day and just now, at 6:37 pm EST in Florida, she got it up. I had to keep purring , so she would calm down. She hates it when she can't figure out the easy way to do something. I mean the pictures would disappear, the computer would freeze up, she lost your comment. Geez. I gave her the night off, so she would calm down. It's up, check it out when you get a chance.
Be blessed,
Samantha

LHK said...

Dragonheart,
It has been really fun to get to know more about you! I hope that we can do something like this again. I thought of a bunch of fun stuff that I should have added.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

What a great list of random things about you, Dragonheart, and what a beautiful picture!

My sister Dorydoo chitters at birds, at bugs, at about anything. And I have to admit, I'm not picky about stinky goodness -- turkey, beef, chicken; mush, chunks, pieces... *giggle*! It all works for me!

Purrs and snuggles to you!

Chen & Ollie said...

Hi Dragonheart! How fun to get to learn 7 more things about you. Ollie saw how much Mr. Chen enjoyed posting 7 random things so he decided to post 7 things about himself, too. We'd love to see a video of you chirping at those birdies. As you know, Mr. Chen enjoys this as well. We didn't know that about how our stomachs can expand though - thanks!
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

Monica said...

I really enjoyed reading all your 20 facts. You look very serious studying what is out the window. It must be very interesting.

Lux said...

Hi, Dragonheart - I saw your bottle tops - I love to play with those, too!

I hope your mom can record you chittering sometime soon!

Suzanne said...
