Totally Cool Fact on , and Thankful Thursday too!!!

Well I learnt something really, really cool today... It seems that both Ramses and I are related to the cats from the American Abyssinian Breeder Tausert's, who played Jake in the 1978 Disney movie "The Cat from Outer Space" - now how cool is that?! Ok so we're talking 12 generations or more ago, but never the less we're both related to cats from this blood line and breeder. Now that's gotta be the cat equivalent of finding out you're related to Clark Gable or similar?!

So not only have I become Royalty this year, but I've found a long lost famous relative too! :) Darn shame I'm not due some of the movie royalties, 'cause I'm sure that'd keep me in 'nip and bikkies for a while... ;)

Now for the other reason Thursday's were created... Yes to be thankful for! :) Today I'm feeling thankful for a few things:

  1. I'm thankful that my ickle baby kittens are growing in my belly, I now weigh 4.2Kg thanks to them getting bigger all the time!
  2. I'm thankful that it's only a little over a week now before I have my ickle kittens...
  3. I'm very thankful for big dinners, breakfasts and lunch as being pregnant makes you very hungry!
  4. I'm thankful that Dad's getting better slowly, but surely - 'cause he's ben a dreadful sofa hog all week!
  5. I'm thankful that the boy keeps leaving his bedroom door open 'cause I like it in his room!
  6. I'm so thankful that Mummy bought me a zoom groom last weekend! :)
  7. I'm thankful that I've had a pawdicure - this means I won't need one for weeks to come! ;)
  8. I'm thankful that I have a wonderful Lady in Waiting and friend in Miss Peach and I hope she knows that I loves her lots! :)
  9. I'm additionally thankful for having inspirational ladycats as some of my friends, like Princess and Storm!
  10. I'm very thankful for being awarded an award for Blogging Excellence from Mindy and Moe at Team Tabby! :)
  11. I'm thankful that I can pass this wonderful award on to Daisy as I find her Fashion Friday's inspiring and just love her Sunday Cartoons! :)
  12. I'm also thankful to Kimo and Sabi for teaching me lots about Bean Kittens, so I'm passing them the award too! :)
  13. Lastly I'm extremely thankful that Tigmut'hep doesn't like cat milk or yoghurt, 'cause I can eat them in peace and I love them both! ;)

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

My dearest Queen Isis! it does not surprise me that you stem from such a rich past...you are a star indeed. Please do watch out for yourself these last few days in your maternity stae. The ickle kittens will soon be here and I am all ready with a pan of warm water and very soft towels. Do eat well and get plenty of rest. You will be up till all hours once they babies are here for they need constant milk and warmth and watching. They tend to wander around so I hope your birthing box is small. I have fixed you a nice cuppa camomile tea and a fresh baked tuna shrimp puff. Now let me fluff your pillow for you and I will be off to bed. Please call me if you need me, I am just a bell ring away....
Your Lady in Waiting...Peachy
