Thursday Meme

I was recently tagged by Ramses for the Nickname Meme. Appreciative purrs, Ramses!

Here are the rules:

Post a link to the cat who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.

*List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you.

*Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged

My Real Name: His Royal Highness Yao-Lin, Master of the Universe, to be adored for all eternity

How I got my Real Name
: The human decided upon my name - Yao-Lin - supposedly ' off the top of her head'. She liked it for its onomatopoeiac quality and actually believed that she had discovered this very original name herself. In fact, I share my name with Gabrielle's maid from Desperate Housewives, and thousands of Chinese people!

Nicknames I like: His Royal Highness, Beautiful Prince, Siamese stunner, elegance personified, slave trainer, most perfect and beautiful cat in the universe (to name but a few).

Nicknames I don't like: Stinky noo noo (HOW DARE SHE!), fatso catso (HOW VERY DARE SHE), heffa lump (!!!), whinger boy, bully boy, furchin lurchin, moody meezer, ouch let go, why can't I eat a dinner all to myself.


I should very much like to tag the following cats for this interesting meme:


Snow & Forest

Fat Eric

Have a lovely evening, my faithful subjects. I am pleased to report that the human recived her wages today. Consequently, I sent her to the shops to buy my pay-day steak.

It is the least she can do after calling me those hideous nicknames!

Dear Human

I admire your attempt to try baking home made bread. However, I feel obliged to inform you that what you actually baked was something of similar consistency to pizza dough. With added cat fur in it.

Might I suggest that you stick with cooking only MY steak from now on.

Yours, bemused at your glaring inadequacy as a female,

Sunday Meme

I have been tagged by the delectable Scout for the 7 Random Things Meme. Yes, yes, another chance to talk about myself. How completely wonderful!

Here are Seven Random Things About Me:

1. I trained the human in taking me for walks with my harness and lead. I walk - she follows. Obviously, I take my time so as to ensure the human becomes agitated and bored. It is far more entertaining for me.

2. I can play fetch but I refused to as soon as Baby Mao arrived on the premises. Call it male ego - he plays fetch with such enthusiasm that I simply cannot muster the energy to join in.

3. I will eat any human food available. To date, this includes (but is not limited to): trifle, brussel sprouts, Yorkshire puddings, baked beans, toast, yoghurt, runner beans, peas, carrots, sweetcorn, hummus, sausages, ham, jelly, ice-cream, KFC, MacDonalds, pizza, chips, coleslaw, salad, spinach, boiled potatoes, oxtail soup.

4. I will raise my paw on command but ONLY if the human offers me temptations. If not - she can forget it.

5. I like Royal Canin biscuits for breakfast, followed by Lamb Chops and/or steak for dinner. Organic meat, of course.

6. I enjoy awakening the human from her snore filled slumber by sitting on her pillow and resting my tail over her fat face. I usually do this just after I have used the litter tray. It is highly entertaining to watch her wretch.

7. At the moment, my sole aim in life is to cause the human slave a serious injury by tripping her on the stairs. I lay in wait every morning, hoping to catch her out but thus far she has avoided my cunning plan. Time will tell, my friends. Mwa ha ha. Watch this space!

I shan't tag any other cats as I believe most of you have completed this meme. If for some strange reason you have not - consider yourself tagged!

Thursday Meme: What's New With You?

I have today been tagged by Sammy and Miles for the following Meme:

All you need to do is tell everyone 3 things that are new with you! Link it back to me and the purrson who gave it to you and pass it on to 3 more kitties you'd like to know more about! :)

So, here are 3 things that are new with me:

1. Today is the human slave's birthday. She is only 28 but I fear is having some kind of mid life crisis. She hasn't even cooked me my lamb chops yet and it is 2.30 in the afternoon! WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?

2. Yesterday, I ate some cooked brussel sprouts. No, not because I like them (I don't) but because I knew they would generate severe feline flatulence which is a useful tool in diverting stinky brothers. Mwa ha ha.

3. One of the neighbourhood cats keeps spraying on our front door. It stinks. I retaliate by pooing in the neighbour's pot plants on her porch. She doesn't even have a cat! Mwa ha ha!

I should like to tag:

The Meaning of Yao-Lin

I found this fantastic tool on Isis' blog. This is by far the most accurate description I have ever seen. I urge you to try it out!

What Yao-Lin Means

You are a royal prince, and you resent anyone who doesn't worship you.
You are stunning, Siamese, and always highly entertaining.
You may miss out by having an inept human slave, but you're too busy destroying the house to care.

You are usually the best at everything ... you have no need to strive for perfection because you are perfect in every way.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive when need be.
You have the classic "Type A Star" personality.

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and other cats can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself but your life is so awful this is to be expected.

You are not relaxed,and are very likely to scratch your human when peeved.

Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You tend to be pretty easily wound up. It's easy to get you excited... which can be bad thing for the humans around you.
You have a lot of enthusiasm for bunny-kicking, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one limb for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish ripping the curtains that you started on yesterday.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a fits of jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in your quest for the finest cuisine.

Oh, and congratulations, Isis on your pregnancy! I trust you will train the kittens in the ways of feline world domination..? Of course you will!

Yes, I am sulking. Again.

You see, the human has informed me that she intends to abandon me tomorrow.

Apparently, she is going to the theatre to see Wicked.



Oh yes, I am sharpening my claws as we speak. I shall trash the house - do a royal poo on the rug, throw up on the bed, shred the curtains.

Wicked indeed. How very dare she.

A Meme on Thursday

I am sure you are all still swooning over yesterdays photograph. To avoid any injuries, I am today posting this interesting meme instead of stunning you all with another picture of me.

Thank you, Ramses, for acknowledging the evil genius that is me!!

This meme was created by the charming cats at

The rules are : you have to post who tagged you and link back to them and then to Then you have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal.

What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?

1. Hmm..only three things? Well, first and foremost I would empty the human's bank account. She doesn't need the money - I do! Naturally, I would hire the local butcher to supply fresh organic lamb and fillet steak DAILY.

2. I would arrange for Gordon Ramsey to attend my palace and cook said meat. I am a royal prince - I deserve nothing less. If he so much as DARES to shout and swear at me, I will have him beheaded and arrange for Jamie Oliver to attend in his stead. Pukka.

3. With a steady supply of organic meat and a first class chef on hand to cook my meals, I would have no need for my fat inefficient human. So thirdly I would fire my current slave. I would ensure she lived next door - out of sight but steadily working to supply her wages to me. Oh, and she could take Baby Mao with her.

I should like to tag the following:

Cheysuli who needs to take time out to daydream occasionally, what with the stress of her political life!

Fiona who has recently returned to the blogosphere after unceremoniously dumping me. We are currently trying to patch things up.

And I simply HAVE to tag Bendrix. My evil genius is dwarfed in comparison to this master of evil.

I have to retire to the kitchen and eat some cat food. It is disgusting. Have a lovely evening.

In the absence of steak or lambchops....

I am served sweetcorn. Naturally, I voraciously devour this food, ever mindful that I am an OBLIGATE CARNIVORE.

It is a shame that the human slave does not understand this fact.

I imagine I will be served ice-cream for afters. Life isn't all bad.

Come Home Mao & Awards

Mr Dear Friend Mao,

Whilst I agree that upsetting the humans is usually a good idea, I think it would be a better idea for you to return home as soon as possible. I am sure your slaves are chewing their nails and ripping out their hair, not to mention crying inconsolably. You are worrying everyone and you need to go home NOW!

I am praying for your safe return, Mao!

I have recently been given two fabulous awards by some of my most faithful subjects.

The first is the Thinking Blogger Award, given to me by Tybalt

This award is accepted with the utmost of grace and appreciation. Thank you Tybalt! Exquisite taste as always!

Finally! A photograph worth looking at!

I do hope you enjoy gazing at this masterpiece of Siamese beauty. I am not complimenting the human's photographic abilities (which are amateur at best). No, I am of course complimenting the subject matter.

I am sure you will appreciate it.

Have a wondrous weekend, my faithful subjects. I will endeavour to pose for as many photographs as felinely possible this coming weekend. Unaccompanied!

An Award on Tuesday

I was recently given this 'Bloggers of the World' award by Diamond:

There are no real rules for this award - other than to link to THIS CHAP who appears to have created it!

I think it is like a comment on the expanse of the Blogosphere and how global it is. This is especially true of the Cat Blogosphere -so many felines, all united in their purpose: world domination.

I would like to pass this award on to:

in Taiwan.

Pyewacket in Australia

The Mosaic Cats
in America.

I was going to tattle about the human's footballer's legs but have decided to save that for next Tuesday! Revenge will be mine!

Meezer Photoshoot Monday

I ordered the human to take part in a photo shoot involving ME and ME ALONE.

Initially, it went rather well - here I am gazing into the mirror at my exquisite reflection, whilst practicing my 'moody meezer' look...

However, I was soon distracted by a familiar smell..

Oh. Wonderful. Photo shoot ruined. Baby Mao utilises his alleged 'cuteness' as a traitorous tactic to deflect the camera away from ME! AND THE HUMAN IS TOO STUPID TO SEE IT!


Mark my royal words.

A Jewel in the Crown

So many adoring subjects, so little time to appreciate you all....

I have created this award for the sole purpose of recognizing those bloggers who are, quite literally, gems!

Take this award and pass it on to as many blogs as you see fit - you know, the ones who make you smile, laugh, even wince (on occasion!). If you know someone who is a diamond, a gem, a cubic zirconia in the rough then this award is for them!

Don't forget to include your reasons as to why you have bestowed this gift upon your chosen recipient - and link back to me for royal authenticity.

So, without further ado, I should very much like to acknowledge:

Princess Tara because she is royal and dignified and copes with a poo-smelling sibling.

Luxor because he is the epitomy of grace and style.

Anastasia because she shone brighter than most during her too short time in this world.

In hindsight, I should also like to award this to Cheysuli. A powerhouse in the world of politics, Chey is a fearless fighter in the unending campaign for Meezer World Domination.

Happy New Year (really)

Just as I predicted, the New Year has started just as it finished - reeking of poo.

I do hope the Cat Blogosphere enjoyed its New Year celebrations. As you know, my human slave deserted me for the evening so whilst she ate, drank and got merry, I sat in a cold, dark house listening to Baby Mao singing Christmas Carols.

Happy New Year everyone, I do hope it brings much joy and happiness for each of you.
