Frootbat Friday & Memes

Dragonheart: Yes, Merlin is essentially the same size as me now! We are pretty much the same size when it comes to length, but Merlin weighs a little more than me, because he is stockier. As our humans say, I'm built more like a distance runner, and Merlin is built more like a hockey player.

tagged us for the book meme.

Here are the rules:
  1. Pick up the nearest book.
  2. Open to page 123
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences.
  5. Tag five people and post a comment to Empress once you post it to your blog so Empress can come see!
The nearest book is our mom's Anatomy and Physiology textbook. Since she's studying to be a physiotherapist, it's always right here, next to her desk and the computer.

"Collectively, they are referred to as glycosaminoglycans or GAGs. Except for hyaluronic acid, the GAGs are associated with proteins called proteoglycans. The proteoglycans form a core protein and the GAGs project from the protein like the bristles of a brush."

We are glad we are cats, and don't have to worry about stuff like this!


Boy tagged us for the Make a Wish meme.

The Rules:
1. Think about what it is that you want more than anything, what your heart’s desire and fondest wish is, and what it is that you would wish for if you were to see the above wishing star flame across the night sky.
2. Right click and SAVE the blank graphic below.
3. Use a graphics program of your choice and place your wish on this picture:
4. Post the Make A Wish Meme and your wishing star on your blog along with these rules.
5. Tag as many people as you like so that there can be wishing stars all across the Blogosphere and ask them to please link back to Linda so that we can see what wishes others have made and share those wishes with others.

You are really really almost like the same size. I hope my brother could also grow just like Merlin, same size as me, then we could play many things with each other.

And I think your wish is great, I sincerely hope it will be come true.

Daisy said...

I am so amazed that Merlin already weighs more than you, Dragonheart! I wonder how big he will eventually get? Those are some good frootbat ears!

topcatrules said...

Pyewacket is still small and light - well, maybe she is and maybe she isn't. Her legs got long, but she is lightweight when she sits on mom's chest.

Trixie on the other hand, is a whole different story.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Wow, we didn't know Merlin was also a hockey player! hahaha. Kittens certainly grow up fast, don't they!

We think you made a lovely wish and we hope it comes true.

Parker said...

We think that your wish is wonderful!

Isis said...

Ooh that's a lovely wish! :) I have one to make too in a bit...

As for little Merlin being likened to a hockey player with his build... I fink that means Tigmut'hep can be likened to a sumo wrestler! ;)

Mickey said...

Very nice picture.It's always fun to see how we cats grow and what size we become :)
I am also glad we cats don't have to learn that book stuff ;)We're just born smart ,heehee
I like your wish meme too!!!!
Purrs Mickey

The Meezers said...

that's a wonderful wish!!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a wonderful wish, and we hope it is fulfilled.
Merlin has certainly grown fast to overtake you with his weight.
Hehe, you lost us on the book.

Eric and Flynn said...

Pee-ess
We meant to tell you we've changed from IE to Firefox, and your blog isn't freezing on us any more. The photos still load a bit slow, but much faster than they did.
Yayyy for Firefox!!!

The Furry Kids said...

I hope Merlin wears a hat when he plays hockey. I wouldn't want him to freeze his froot bat ears! :)

I fink it would be good to be a distance runner or a hockey player. I might not make a good hockey player though because of my bitey issues.

That is very impressive that your Mommie studies to be a physiotherapist. My Mommie is in college studying to be a communicator. Her major is Mass Communications. I fink that your Mommie will make many more temptations than my Mommie! MOL.

jenianddean said...

I can't believe Merlin weights more than you. Crazy! I love your double frootbat ears!

And as for A&P textbooks, I have taken some really good naps on those books while my mom and dad were trying to study. I highly recommend them for napping.

We will purr with you all to help make your wish come true.

Junior said...

That is a great wish...and a strange book.

You two are so cute sitting together!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I have to admit it, your book meme was even more confusing that my humans!

That was a wonderful wish!

Tybalt said...

Great memes, guys! I can't believe that Merlin is already heavier than you, Dragonheart. Wow, he has sure grown up fast!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I have no idea what that stuff from the book was all about.

I think Merlin is going to be a FURRY big mancat!

4 Boys and a Lady said...

Wow, Merlin is getting so big now! He probably has a lot more growing to do.

Your wish is truly wonderful!

PB & J said...

That's a great wish guys! We'll purr for it to come true very soon!

Veronica (M) said...

Veronica

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Wow, Merlin sure is growing fast no wonder he eats so much! Maybe his new nickname could be tank. Dad calls Speedy "da bulldozer" cuz he's bigger and heavier den any of us. We really hope yoor wish can come true...

Lux said...

What a cute picture of you two!

That book is *wayyyyy beyond me! :)

Veronica (M) said...

the closest we can get to organics is free-range chickuns. but our normal chickuns is not free range because it is not always available. you two must go to a special stores for that kinds of organics. Mamaw said for now since she can't affords organics for herselfs we get regular foods too. But we switched to homemade paraben-free cleaners because that is so much better for kitties...

DK & The Fluffies said...

He has grown up so fast!

Moki said...

Hehehe...we know all about having a textbook near by, momma bean just finished her finals yesterday!

What a great wish you made and good luck with your studies!

goldenshade said...

So is Merlin the next Gretzky?

That was a wonderful wish, I hope it comes true and all the families can stop worrying.

The Devil Dog said...

Thanks, mom actually knows how to do this now. ha ha

Roxy

But what do I wish for? Oh, that will be hard. I will have to think about this.

Linda said...

Dear Dragonheart & Merlin,

That is by far one of the very nicest wishes I have seen so far in the Blogosphere. That was so sweet and thoughtful of you and I really, really hope it come true.

Thank you for playing!

Linda

Sunny's Mommy said...

Wow! Merlin has grown so much in 3 months! I was looking back at his pictures when you first brought him home, and he was so small, and look at him now.

Jamie said...

Your wish is very nice. Mine is the sam except I'd like to include US soldiers, British soldiers and Austrailian soldiers..ALL of the coalition troops.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...
