Plume was chosen by Velvet to carry on the meme. When I told her so, she thought about it for a while, and then asked me to be her spokeswoman: she agreed to reveal 6 weird facts about herself.
(I am transcribing her exact words; although I am using the first person, do keep in mind that this is Plume talking) .
1- I love dipping my paws into my water fountain, and then strolling around the place. I really can’t see why Sylvie rushes after me with a towel to wipe my paws…
2- I enjoy waking up Sylvie at 6 every morning, meowing from the other end of the flat. Believe me, I have a lot a puff – nothing to do with those minute kitten squeaks. When I meow, you do hear me – a little too loud according to Sylvie, who keeps telling me that she wishes she could remove my batteries so I kept quiet (nonsense!)
3- I hate it when people take me in their arms. Seriously, I am not a ragdoll! I do confess that when Sylvie comes back from work, I love cuddling and I sometimes happen to abandon myself in her lap (although you have to know that I’ve never come there by myself)
4- Brushing – ewww! Except under the chin – I love being brushed there!
5- I could go mad for catnip, and this amuses Sylvie. Really, those humans – anything makes them laugh…6- I hardly ever wash, which accounts for my nickname – « Stinking Ass » (tut-tut – is that a name for a Demoiselle?) This enrages Sylvie… and this is why, when she deems it necessary, she uses baby wipes and cleans up my bottom – let me tell you straightaway that I really don’t enjoy that!
Wow… I certainly didn’t expect to unveil myself so much.
Who shall I pass this on to? … Let’s see
– Tichka (Nat),
– Lulu (Nicki),
– Polo (Nicki).
A big thank you to my dear friend, Isabelle, for the english translation!!!
