Introducing the cats...

Today being Friday, I thought that I would introduce the cats. We have two, a male and a female.

We got the female first, although she is a little younger and certainly not the alpha-cat. She is a mildly feral, rather retarded, striped tabby cat. Her name is Muxa. Muxa? you say, in a very puzzled voice?. What the heck does that mean? "Muktzah" is a Hebrew word that basically means things that you shouldn't futz with on Shabbat, if you are observant. We are not, but it was a nice-sounding word, and we figured that nobody else in the world has a cat named Muxa.



The other cat is Ajax, who is sort-of Muxa's brother. He is a weird combination of scaredy cat and pet-me-slut. He has a "Pet-Me Meter" that frequently has a hole in it and requires lots of petting to fill up. I call him a "morning suit kitty" instead of a tuxedo kitty, because he is gray and white. He has no idea that his name is Ajax (named for the Greek warrior, not the foaming cleanser), but probably thinks it is Fluffy. He also has about 9 other names, but he responds to none of them.



If Ajax had his choice, he would live in a studio apartment (or perhaps a one-bedroom) with TheHusband, because I and ThePinkThing basically spend our time getting between him and his Master...

So I missed this post. You actually satisfied the Internet Authorities much earlier than I thought.

Now you know something more about me. :)
