Tuckered out On Tuesday - & a Meme!

Hi all. I am sooooooooooo tired from all the great parties and telyporting I did yesterday. Whew! Everyone did a fantastic job on their parties and Bendrix and I had so much fun. It is a rainy day made for sleep today. I plan on sleeing all day after I do the MeMe my pretty meezer friend Scout tagged me for.

Here is how it works:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.

2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)

I am named for the great guitarist Jimi Hendrix. His birth middle name was "Allen" but his daddy changed his middle name to Marshall when he was four. That is the name he carried with him throughout his life. I know I'm in trouble when mommy yells "James Marshall Hendrix you get down from there!" or "James Marshall Hendrix you stop scratching right now!" You get the idea. I like being called "Hendrix" for short. I am also sometimes called "Mr. Hendrix" like at the VET or when I write for the blogosphere. It sounds more professional.

M: Mancat. I try hard to be a "good" Mancat, but with an Evil Alter Ego, that is hard.
A: Appreciative. I am appreciative of having a warm and loving home after being a feral for the first 2 years of my life.
R: Ruckus. What Bendrix causes when I don't keep a close eye on him.
S: Snuggly. But on my own terms - meaning I will snuggle only with mommy and only in bed at night - or - on the sofa (If she pretends to be asleep - not if she is reading) if mommy has an afghan on her legs.
H: Handsome. Mommy tells me I'm handsome all the time and I have a tendency to agree with her.
A: Amazing. As a House Panther, I am naturally talented at whatever I try my paw at. Cards, Craps, Pool playing, playing string toys, getting into trouble.
L: Lightweight. No matter what mommy and daddy say, I am NOT a weeble. I am svelte and trim. Really. Don't laugh. I am svelte!
L: Loveable. As a former feral, it took a lot of time and a lot of patience for me to get here. Even after I would let my mommy and daddy pet me, I never let visitors near me. After mommy and daddy showed me the people who came over are nice (especially with grandparents) by giving them treats to give me, I now know that visitors are here to see me, pet me, feed me and compliment me.

So that is my middle name Meme!

I have to tag eight kitties! Wow! I wonder who hasn't been tagged....I'll go with the following and hope they haven't been tagged. If you haven't been tagged yet, remember, Bendrix gets his own list so consider yourself tagged by him!

I hope you all had as much fun on St. Patrick's Day as Bendrix and I did!

Thanks for tagging us. We also got tagged by Griffin, so each of us will do one; one from you and one from Griffin.

Now, all we need to do is pick ourselves a middle name. Hmmm...

You have a very cool name, Hendrix. :) Those are great words to describe you. We're pretty sure the vet doesn't think you are snuggly though. ;)
