MEET MY CABINET: ME I'm 11 today

TODAY IS MY 11TH BIRTHDAY AND IT IS ALSO
MEET THE CABINET MONDAY SO I THOUGHT
I'D ANSWER THE SAME QUESTIONS I'M SENDING 
TO MY CABINET
WE THANK SQUIRREL QUEEN FOR THIS LOVELY
BUTTON
Mom told me it is supposed to be your lucky year when your age is the same as your birth date.  I don't know how I could be any luckier!!!


1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age and a very special trait.
I am Madi(son)D. Cat, I was born on March 11, 2002...so today I am 11.  As for a special trait, I have a teeny, tiny speck of black on my left hind foot.  
2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why. 
PUDDLES D. RAINWATER BECAUSE SHE IS HER OWN WOMAN, SHE TAKES NAMES AND KICKS BUTT and she is gawjus!!! BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Mom says my personality reminds her a lot of Toto the mighty mini Doxie who taught the family just how a family pet should be treated.

3. What do you like best/least about where you live
The best thing about where I live is it is climate controlled, has a fresh flowing water fountain, a gazillion
places to sleep, hide and explore and Free Bird TV.
The worst thing about where I live is the fridge and pantry are are password protected. And I still don't know the password.

4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
EVERY ONE OF YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE ALL VERY SPECIAL AND MAKE ME LAUGH AND KNOW ALL MY FAULTS AND LOVE ME ANYWAY
5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
ALWAYS SLEEP WITH ONE EYE OPEN AND NEVER EVERY SLEEP WITH YOUR BACK TO THE DOOR.  TWO LEGGERS CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

6. What do you do for fun
GET UP EVERY MORNING AND IF I'M PATIENT FUN COMES TO ME.
I THOROUGHLY ENJOY A GOOD NAP BUT I ALSO LIKE TO BE SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF WHATEVER THE PEEPS ARE DOING. SOMETIMES IF THEY ARE IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE HOUSE I PARK MY TUSH HALF WAY BETWEEN THEM JUST SO I'M READY FOR WHATEVER LOOKS LIKE FUN.

7. What is the first thing you do each morning
SIT PATIENTLY SCREAM TO THE TOP OF MY LUNGS WOMAN WHERE IS MY FOOD WHILE MOM PREPARES MY BREAKFAST
8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
THEIR SENSE OF HUMOR, KIND HEART AND IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY!!!

9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name. 
On the Saturday before Mother's Day, May 11, 2002, my peeps finally decided after nearly 2 years w/o a kitty,it was time to have a furry ball of love in their lives.  They had decided they wanted a gray kitty.  Dad's brother took them to see two siblings who were listed as kitty L and kitty M.
Kitty L was a lovely calico and Kitty M was gray and white.

This picture was taken on May 11, 2002.

Dad's brother adopted Kitty L aka Lucy and my peeps adopted me. At first they were not thinking of names beginning with M.  Dad told me it took longer to name me than it did my
human sis. MOL  Anyway after about 3 days of thinking they
decided on Madison because they thought it suited me but they were going to call me Madi.  Little did they know Diva would have been a more suitable name.  MOL

10. What is your absolute favorite food?
Over the last 11 years the only food they have found that I don't like is veggies!! I am not fed from the table but if it hits the floor and it isn't a veggie I will eat it. Which is another reason Mom says I remind her of Toto he was a K9 disposal.  Wish I had known him...I think we would have been good friends.

Bonus Question:  Tell us something no one knows.
Mom can speak Felinese!! Yep....she is fluent too. Evidently she started learning it about 25 years ago.
Imagine my surprise the first time I tried to sass her and she sassed me right back. She has a serious cat-a-tude too. Every sound I make she makes and we have the best mom daughter talks.  Dad says he can hardly tell our voices apart.  MOL

I received an 'special delivery air mail' card on March 8th 
from my BNFF, (best Newfie friend forever).

Thank you Angel Remington, Beth and Mike
I love you big guy!! 


I love your candle shades
Mom says this card is suitable framing!!


ALSO I RECEIVED AN ECARD FROM MY VET

  29. Oh...HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY my BFFF! There musta been a REASON that mom dreamed abouts you and your mom last night. I guess somewhere in her kerazy head, she KNEW it was your birthday!

    I loved learning more abouts you. And guess what? I like to be right in the middle of whatever the two-leggers are doing, too! Oh, and guess what else? My mom is really good with the feline-ese, too! Although she doesn't have as much need to use it as she did when Cap'n Ripley was around. Yeesh! That boy could talk. But Abby and Smudge don't seem to have a lot of opinions about stuff. Weird, huh?

    Anyways, I hope you get lotsa extra treats and skritches and NO vegetables for your birthday! Sending you oodles of brindle birthday kisses from Collie-rado!
