Tagged

But not me... mum was tagged by Fin's mum to play this game. The rules are:

Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself.

We don't have a scanner at home so mum says she can't show you a childish picture of her. So go ahead mum, tell everyone about yourself.

Okay here's my list of 10 things!
  1. I was born in Melbourne Australia and have lived here all my life, but I have travelled to a lot of places.
  2. I used to wear glasses and was quite blind but I had laser eye surgery two years ago and now have perfect vision.
  3. I work for the Victorian government, in the area of catchment management.
  4. I started out my working life as a librarian.
  5. I don't have any children - Huffle's dad and I are happy with Huffle and she demands enough of our attention.
  6. I am petrified of spiders, and have been known to leave the house if no-one else is home to kill them.
  7. I am addicted to buying shoes.
  8. My favourite book is Catch 22 by Joseph Heller.
  9. Before Huffle, I had never owned a cat, only dogs.
  10. Helping Huffle to blog has made me some great friends around the world, some of whom I've been lucky enough to meet in person!
Now, Huffle thinks we should tag the following mums:

Batu Khan's mum
Domi the Therapy Dog's mum
Ginger Jasper's mum
The Island Cats' mum
Poppy Q's mum

So did you have you have your eye surgery before or after you got Huffle instead of a dog? Just saying . . .

Easy Huff - no hissing allowed. You know that intimidates us.

Hey Huffle,
We enjoyed learning about your mum. We read through her entire Holiday Blog this morning and say the picture of her and your dad with Steve and Kat in Seattle. She is a very good travel reporter. We liked the Polar Bear and Grizzly Bear pictures and were really amazed by the New Zealand pictures. We didn't kow where broome was so we had to look it up. How did camels get there? How many pairs of shoes does Emelda Tracy have all together?

Those are interesting things about your mom.

My mom went to school to be a librarian.... but she works as an aid in a special ed class.

I along with Stella am wondering about the parsley pot.... did the workmen break it?

Princess Eva and Brice said...

We knew some but not all.
Plus we now know that hissing cats intimidate TH.

Fin said...

Hi Huffle Mom!! So nice to learn about you. We don't know what catchment management is, but I'm sure it's very exciting. Mom would abandon the house if a hopper got in too.

We love coming over here and being friends with you and your people!

Reese =^..^= said...

Very nice getting to know you better. This is a fun meme.

The Island Cats said...

We like learning stuff about our furiends' humans! Our mom hates spiders too!! But she won't kill a spider if she sees one...she leaves that to us!

Our mom did this meme on Saturday so we won't make her do it again...she sez there's no more interesting stuff about her anyway...heehee!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Thanks for sharing about your mom. We know lots about her, as we chatted over bully sticks.

Pablo said...

Catch 22 is one of the bestest and funniest and cleverest books in the world. That's what Kate told me to say, anyway...

pughy said...

Interesting facts, it is so good to getto know the mums who blog. Thank you for tagging mum, she says she has been tagged twice now and will try to do it after work.

Hugs GJ xx

It's been great getting to find out more about the people behind the blogs:)

Forever Foster said...

P.S. Mum got my Boogie Bliss toy from Bowhouse. She has seen them in Petbarn, too.

Milo and Alfie said...

We enjoyed reading your answers. Mom was impressed by the laser stuff 'cos she wears contacts and would love not to have too. Porr dad is still having lasers for a different eye problem though ...

Parker said...

We loved learning more about you!

Kari said...

You're a wonderful kitty, dear Huffle. Its nice to know about the person behind the cat.

The Army of Four said...

There's only one thing holding our mom back from that laser surgery thing. Something about a chicken. Or being a chicken. Something like that.
Play bows,
Zim
PS: Huffle is an honorary Sibe, so you sort of have a pup!

Neat info to know! What a cool meme :)

Hee hee, my mom says to use the blue bug killer that says windex on it for spiders like she does!

Whitey said...

You sound like Mom's Mom... she would not kill a spider herself for anything. She would just run around begging somebuddy else to kill it until she dropped dead of exhaustion. hehehe.

The Kitty Krew said...

Fun stuff! We love hearing about the beans behind the kitties. They're so much more interesting than our bean. ;)

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

We always like to learn more about our friends and their beans!!!
That was cool!!!!

Domi said...

Hi Huffle.

My girl said to tell you that she plans on playing soon but that she has been really busy lately. It's taking a while to get caught up.

Tail wags,
Domi
