Billy the Cat





1. Billy Batters, the new addition to the family. Age, 6 weeks, weight, 200 gms. Temperament, will have as much fun as possible. And oh, he is sitting inside the car's dashboard.

Billy is what I have been upto the past three days. People get bunnies for Easter; I got myself an Easter kitty. Rather Partner's mom got me Billy.

Partner's parents live on a farm with 16 wild cats and Billy is from a litter of 3. Other than Billy, the weekend has been fun, food and family. Except for the one time that Scroobie the dog nearly ate Billy; everything has been bonny and fine.

He does not cry, he has used his litter right from Try 1, he is happy with his formula and two teaspoons of mashed fish and he is loads of entertainment when awake. He is also a very good alarm as he woke us up this morning at 7.30 am sharp. He was hungry and he lets you know.

Saw hello people to Billy and a proud and happy Mamma. And oh, it's 'Billy' for the Aussies and 'Billi' for the desis. As I've been explaining here, the pronounciation is 'Bill-Lee' without a pause. The cat's bilingual you see. :)

AW YOU LUCKY THING HE'S SOOOO CUTE! I'm sooo bloody jealous. Bring him to Indien the next time you visit! Oh I could tickle him under the neck for hours on end. Man, once I figure out where I'll be in four months, I'm definitely getting one too. Kit-Kats! They're the best!

Eve* aka JB said...

@Flygye: Took it from India, along with all other furniture you see in the pic. Only the chair i am sitting on and the computer table were purchased here. What about getting Bebe used to a kitty? Partner used to hate cats...but now I see him cuddling up to it. :D

@DewDrop: Minka sounds good. Put up pics!

Billy Batters :) :) :)

I had a cat called Bonny Banerjee. That was age at 6.
Then, ages 15-20 (mine, i.e.), we had the following motley bunch claiming Top Cat rights at various times:
1. Dodon Tutki-Putki[mommmy of]
2. Pooti [bhaalo naam: Vladimeow Pootin, after the then new elected Russian President]
&
3. Dodu [because he was so lazy when he slept you could open his mouth and put his paw inside and he still wouldn't move ; bhaalo naam - Godendro Naath Dotto]
4. Moturola [Because he was fat and round (hence motu) and when he purred he was like a Motorola phone buzzing away in the vibration mode]. Ma also called him - Idiot.
5. Krishan Kant [Because he had a slightly hoarse meow and it sounded like khey khey, hence, KK, which was expanded to Krishan Kant]
6. Gundurao Honda [because he was a real gunda and purred like a revved up Honda bike]
7. Bullet[speedy little clown!]

Of course, none of them ever responded to any of those :D

Here's wishing you loads and loads of fun with the little chap :)

Of all the toys available to a cat, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a sound when you jump on it. ~Stephen Baker
