Meowsday C.9

Ha! You guys thought I had forgotten about our dear old kitty feature. Nope, I just been fighting an awful cold, going to school, and working like a mule. So, sorry for the late post on this fine, rainy, Monday. Enjoy!

Introducing today, Mrs. Susannah from Susannahbean and her little Mr.


What is your cat's name?:
My cat's name is Mr. Earl Marshall Littlejeans. 

Why did you pick that name out?:
When my boyfriend and I adopted him, his name was O'Malley. We weren't huge fans of that name, so I picked Earl (because he's gray, so like Earl Grey Tea!). One day we were watching the movie Rushmore, and at the very end there's a line where they say, "What did you think, Mr. Littlejeans?", and my boyfriend repeated it to the cat. It just sort of stuck, and we ended up giving him a middle name just because :)

Nicknames:
We call him Jeans more than anything, but I also call him Jeansy, buddy, little guppy, and about a hundred other random things!



How you met:
We adopted Jeans from the local humane society in September 2008. I went to the shelter by myself first, and I really had my heart set on getting a little orange kitten. There weren't any, and I was about to leave, when I saw this little gray dude in the corner. He was so pretty, I asked if I could see him and they let me take him in the little play room. He totally won me over, he climbed behind my neck and nibbled on my earrings and played like a champ. I brought my boyfriend to meet him the next day, and he loved him, so we brought him home!



Special characteristics (features that make them unique:striped tail, white paws, etc...):
Jeans has a really pretty blue/gray coat, which makes some people assume he's a Russian Blue. I've read up on it, and it is possible for regular domestic cats to have that distinct coat color, so he's probably not a Russian Blue, but he's just as pretty :) He has very bright green eyes, and a whole "vocabulary" of meows. 

adorable thinngs they love to do (loves catnip, hides in dryer, etc...):
Jeans plays more like a puppy than a cat! We play fetch and he loves catnip. 



And anything else you would like to include:
I know it sounds silly, but Jeans wears pajamas at night! Without pj's, he's up all night biting our toes, knocking stuff down, and pawing at the wall. We found out that if we put a t-shirt on him, he goes to sleep right away and sleeps all night. It's odd, but it works for us! 


Isn't He a cutie!? If you would like to be feature on the next Meowsday, click here.

  7. This cat is exceedingly cute. If I would guess what he is thinking in the second to last pic, it would be something along the lines of, "errrr turn off ze light, i haz to sleep."
