Thursday Thirteen 11/13/08 - 34th Edition


13 Bits of Chattery in the Cattery
(the first 30 minutes of any weekday morning at my house, spoken by me to the three meow babies, yes, it's gaggable, complete with hairball souvenir):
  1. Aw, g'mornin' mama's original meow, my orange little cozy.
  2. Thank you for sleeping by me, my love.
  3. G'mornin' missy sissy, you guud gurl (whose a good girl? is the missy sissy is? yes she is a guud gurl).
  4. Mama gets your breakfast after the shower, my pretty little fatness.
  5. Oh, da dinky do, my boo boo!
  6. How svelte you are, my sophisticat, best all around good kitten, many years in a row.
  7. Mama loves.
  8. All of those.
  9. Each.
  10. Lillow-bee! Breakfast! (followed by singing special song just for her to the tune of Breakfast at Tiffany's while pouring her special diet kibble)
  11. Aw, lovin'a's, mama wishes she could stay home and nap and snack and do lovin's all day and be a cat in my house next lifetime.
  12. K, you all get along, my little freeloadin' meows.
  13. Have a good kitten'a' day and mama loves.
Do you talk totally batshit nonsense baby talk to your pets and give them all a million nicknames? Just me?

  6. Oh, yeah, doesn't everyone talk silly talk to their animals? And the nicknames? The list is long - for all the furballs in the house.

    Now my Dad - he used to ask the animals legitimate questions, not rhetorical type questions, but real honest to goodness in his normal voice questions. We always asked if he he expected the animals to answer. :-)

  10. Yep... Kevin and I have conversations with them daily. Sometimes we even talk for them - acting as if they're speaking to each other. lol. This is a great list!

  11. Those are really funny, but I know people who talk to their kids like that! Unfortunately, I don't have any pets and my kids are too old to talk to like that, so I settle for talking to myself!

    Happy TT!

  13. Well, I don't have any pets right now, unless you count the hubby, but YES. I did do that when I had pets. I am a total cookey talker to animals.
    :)
    That was a fun TT!

  14. Great pix and phrases. I too talk to the cats nonstop when they're around me. I wish I could be reincarnated as a house cat - that's the life!

  15. LOL! You are too cute :)

    I used to talk like that to my dog. He would tilt his head while I spoke as if he was really trying to understand. But I'm sure it sounds like blah blah blah.

  16. Your cats are too cute. Which one is the mischievous master of tricks? We talk pretty darn stupid to all our pets. Some people would think us very strange if they ever heard it. All 8 Chi's have nick names, as well as the 30 pound Bengal who insists on sleeping on my legs. His name is Mai Tai, but is called the dirty white boy, because his coat looks like he has been walking around under a coal shoot or something. Destiny, the Red Healer, is simply Baby Girl to me.

  20. I'm all about speaking batshit nonsense baby talk to my cats. I'm on a kick of "What's up, monkey butt?" with one of them right now!

  21. OMG I totally do the same thing with my cats. I have a million nicknames for them. I baby talk to other people's animals too and they look at me like I just did crack or something....but I think its hilarious that we all do that!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes I do too. My one little old lady cat I talk sweet nothings to. The young kitty who keeps mounting her despite "things" being gone, well, there's a lot of yelling in my house as of late.

    What to do! (The kiddos' stuffed animals are now targets...)

    kitty tmi? maybe. got some advice?
