We've Been Tagged!

Hi, it's Pumpkin's Momma. We've been tagged by The Crew and Rascal for the current on-line game.

Here's the rules: The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself ". In the end you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Pumpkin doesn't think that he has any weird habits, but I know better!
1. His absolute favorite toy is a paper ball. He would rather play with them than the store bought toys.
2. He plays with water. Splashes it all over before deciding to drink it. He'll even put his TOYS (including paper balls) in the water.
3. He jumps up at the walls for no apparent reason. He'd be running down the hall, pause to jump up, and then continue on his way. That's how he almost got the birdie (more about that in a future post.)
4. He's a klepto kitty. He'll take things like sponges, socks and pens to play with.
5. He likes the gravy from the dogs' canned Pedigree food. He'll wait, along with Blackie, for his meager teaspoonfull whenever I'm preparing the dogs' dinners.

6. I know, I know I'm only supposed to list 5 things but I couldn't leave this one out. Pumpkin pokes his little pink nose into every dusty corner of the house and as a result his nostrils kind of, uh, gets caked up with dirt but he LOVES it when I'm cleaning his nose with a wet cotton swab.

Bebe has some weird habits too:
1. He used to have a favorite toy that he would carry around and talk to. (He lost it quite awhile ago and he's never found a replacement.)
2. When he's happy and getting petted, he'll suck on the big pad of either front paw. Then he'll knead on you with his wet feet.
3. He's been known to unroll the whole roll of toilet paper.
4. He loves feet. He'll rub his face and wet nose all over your feet when he's happy. Then he'll collapse on them.
5. He uses the litter box like he's supposed to do, but when it comes to burying what he did, his aim is WAY off. Sometimes he'll scratch the litter box cover, the walls, the plastic sheet the litter box sits on and end up not covering anything up.

Tiger is an angel but he does have a few weird habits:
1. He pulls towels down off the towel racks.
2. He sometimes shreds newspaper into confetti.

3. If he seeks a bug or gecko on the wall out if his reach, he'll meow at it.
4. This isn't so weird, but his favorite food is shrimp. At the dinner table, he'll give you a nudge or lick your elbow if you're not peeling the shrimp and breaking it up into pieces fast enough for him.
5. And I can't think of anything else that's weird. (He really is a very good boy!)

Blackie, our senior citizen, does have a few weird habits:
1. See Pumpkin's weird habit #5 above.
2. She sometimes runs all over the patio, jumping up and over things, dashing here and there for no apparent reason.
3. She's our purr baby. Whenever you carry her, she's always purring.
4. Though she's old, she still plays with her toys. The mousies and nip toys go flying through the air as she chases them. That's not weird, that's exercise!
5. This is more gross than weird. Sometimes when she's eating her crunchies, she'll throw up right back into the bowl. Eww!

Almost everyone we know is already playing the game but if we had a choice, we would have tagged:
Missy Blue Eyes

I just checked and they've already been tagged so I won't tag them again.

My mom laughed when she read your wierd lists. I didn't think anybody on this blog is wierd. Everything sounds normal to me!
