Frootbat Friday & A Meme

This photo is a little unusual for me, because my tail isn't wrapped around my paws the way it usually is! The sun was out yesterday, so I was able to enjoy some warm sunshine.

I've been tagged by Kelly Cat for a Meme. Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules
2. Write some facts about yourself: some random, some weird, some just plain fun.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)
4. Let those 7 people know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

The challenge is to keep it interesting without making the reader think “Um, too much information…”

  • I'm very particular when it comes to eating stinky goodness. My stinky goodness has to be REAL meat (chicken or fish), that flakes, like real chicken or fish a human can eat. I dispise pâté-style stinky goodness (it's just processed mush to me) and anything with gravy (more processed gunk). Fortunately, my humans feed me Almo Nature, which is 100% organic, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, human grade meat and 100% ocean caught fish. Then it's cooked with 100% organic rice and water, and that's it. My humans say it looks and smells just liked canned chicken or fish they would eat.

  • Another eating tidbit: I have what my humans call "an expensive tummy." On occasion, they've tried feeding me other types of stinky goodness (less expensive, as the Almo Nature is one Euro per can), and I just throw it right back up.

  • I like to drink from the TOP of my water fountain, where the water comes out.

  • I love feathers! Any toy that has feathers on it is quickly destroyed. So the Whirlybird is naturally one of my favourite toys.

  • When the sun isn't shining (and so there's no sun to lie in), I love to burrow. I'll burrow under the covers, in my sleeping bag, in the fleece blanket on my human's lap - anywhere that I can get under or into cover.

  • I sadly seem to no longer be affected by catnip. I hope it's just a phase. I used to roll around in it and get hyper, but now it has no effect on me. :( My mom even bought some fresh "premium" dried catnip for me, and it has no effect. Oh well.

  • Like most Sphynx, I LOVE people. I love cuddling with humans and I love meeting new people. When we have visitors, I will come and sit next to them, or on them if they'll let me. I love being stroked and I purr easily when someone pets me. I am just a furless bundle of love. :)

  • I LOVE to play. If I want to play with one of my wand toys that is kept in my toy chest, I'll scratch at the chest to let my humans know I want to play with a wand toy. If I want to play with the red dot laser mouse, I will knock the mouse off of the desk or table, to let my humans know I want to chase the red dot. (Yes, I'm smart - I know the red dot comes from the laser pointer shaped like a mousie.

My kitties don't respond to catnip, either! Fingers crossed they'll all change =)

Tyler said...

Oh Dragonheart, it's wonderful to get to know you even better.

Oah, Dear Dragonheart, Great meme you said.
I think catnip with no effect is also good, at least your human bean don't have to buy this stuff to try.
If your humanbean really want to try more, maybe wait for 1~2 years, it may change~! Just maybe~~

Stinky goodness has to be REAL meat is really special and unique, no wonder you are so healthy~!!

Daisy said...

It is very interesting that you used to like catnip, but now you don't! We have a fountain, but we never tried drinking from the top part. I might have to try that now.

Parker said...

Bummer about the catnip, I Love, love love it!

Monty Q. Kat said...

I want a cool drinking fountain...I'm hoping to ask for one for the holidays since a certian bean forgot my birthday.

Caesar and Princess said...

Happy Friday Dragonheart. You are the most handsome boy kitty.
Thank you sooo much for tagging us. we love this meme and we are going to get to work on it this week-end.

Goodness! and you are a picky eater! however, that is okay. Mommie even said that about our girls when they were babies and certainly also about us. She thinks that if your tummy does not desire or tolerate a food, there quite possibly is a food sensitivity. Maybe when you are older it will change, perhaps. Also the catnip... we used to enjoy it, and quite often turned us into wild destructive monkeys (we are athletic long legged kitties like you) and it made me too aggressive with Princess, so mom had to put it away and only gave us little bits. Now it only sometimes effects us.

We enjoyed reading this about you.
We hope you have a lovely Frootbat day and a terrifical week-end!

Mickey said...

Sun is the best ,but snuggling and burrowing are fun too.
I would like a drinking fountain.sounds like fun.

The Furry Kids said...

Those are neat things we learned about you. Burrowing rocks! You are so smart to tell your mom and dad that you want to play. Catnip stopped working on us for a little bit, too, last summer. Momma gave up for a few months, and then reintroduced us this spring. I love it a lot still, but it doesn't have the same effect on EG that it used to (he just lays around on it, looking stoned). I hope it starts to work on you again someday because it is FUN!

Love,
Tazo

WE hate pate style stinky goodness as well. In fact no matter how hungry we are we will not eat it.

I refuse to get along with Boo. I know she has special 'privledges' with my Momma and I don't like it one bit!

MeezerMom said...

those are great things to know Dragonheart!

you mom gets Ben and Jerry's Ice cream in Germany? That is so awsome!

Cheysuli said...

Sigh... I am also not affected by catnip. It helps for the presidential election but still...

The Crew said...

I understand about tummy problems. There are only a few foods that don't make me throw up. Mom says I have a delicate stomach.

I love to be under the covers, too. Why don't you come over today and we can get under the big quilt. It's quite warm & cozy.

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Great meme and thanks for tagging me! I'll be sure to do it on Monday. I don't like food in general so I can understand your needs. Burrowing is great when its cold!

Different cats like different kinds of catnip too. I wonder how onea our nip raviolis would do. That's some weird nip. Even GRANDMA likes the smell of it lots. Weird huh?
Hope you find some nip that you like sometime anyways.
Purrrrrrrs,
Sanjee

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Great meme Dragonheart. We really liked to get to know you better. Mmmm, we loves stinky goodness too! Mom bought us a fountain but nobody liked it so it was back to the bowl for us. We prefer our water out of the tap.

catsynth said...

It's interesting to hear more about you, and about Sphynxes, through these memes. Thanks for sharing.

Peach Man said...

Great Meme Dragonheart. If your Mom thinks you have an expensive tummy she could always get you a buddy and try a little "competitive" eating. It worked for Simone! And you'd have somebuddy to play with too!

Jimmy Joe said...

That's a nice sunbath you're taking there, Dragonheart! I think you deserve your expensive stinky goodness, and you are perfectly justified in yakkin' up the other stuff--you are a classy gentleman.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Henry Helton said...

Nice to get to know you better.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Looking good, as always! Speedy is the only one who actually yaks up food dat doesn't agree with him. Zippy just turns her nose up at anything she doesn't like. Thanks fur da tag, we'll do da meme's as soon as mom stops whining about her hed hurting (lazy) and all da coffing (lazy)

Chairman Mao said...

Happy Frootbat Friday, Dragonheart! What a lovely picture of you. And I enjoyed reading your meme! You sound like such a sweet and fun kitty.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Great picture! We like the way your tail whips around in some of your videos :)

Samantha & Tigger said...

Thanks for more neat information about you Dragonheart. We love learning new things about our furiends. Catnip effects Tigger much more than me. I'm more into snuggling under the cover than Tigger. Your very handsome in your picture as always. Have a great weekend.
Your FL furiends,

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Very good Meme Dragonheart - it is always good to learn new things about you.

I think this is the first picture of you I have seen when your tail isn't wrapped around your paws : )

I had a fountain and I hated it, so Mum went back to water in a bowl.

The Devil Dog said...

Hi Dragonheart. First, let me tell you that I think you have a spectacular name. Dragonheart. Oohh, I just love it (but then my middle name is Dragon). I also loved your Gizzy Quilt with the Dragons in it, I thought they were very cool. I love to sit in the sun, too, and if it is not sunny, I am right there with you burrowing under the blankets to be next to my mom and dad. I like learning more about all of Millie's friends. I don't have an expensive tummy, but if I eat the wrong thing, I have been known to toss it up as well.

Hi I had some trouble finding these comments... Poor cat no fur! Are you American? I've never seen a hairless cat (only didn't they have one on Freinds one episode Rachel sold it to Gunter for twice the $1000 she paid?!?) Well you don't look sad for the lack of hair so good on yer.... take it easy

Nice work on the meme, Dragonheart. It's fun to learn more about our fellow cats.

I sure know what you mean about throwing up... but just give me that chicken baby food, and Kelly's belly is happy.
