Thanks to the charming and, ahem, very masculine Nerissa, I have this "Illuminating Blogger Award" to share with you today.
The rules are simple enough: Share an illuminating fact about yourself, and then pass the award along to five other bloggers.
The second part of the task is easier than the first, so here goes. I choose the following LadyCats of Mystery:
Zoey of The Island Cats
Audrey of Simba's Antics
Cathy Keisha of The World's Most Stunning Cat
Binga of Sparkle the Designer Cat
Allie of A Tonk's Tail

But, huh. Here we are now at the Hard Part. As it turns out, I do, in fact, have a rather poorly-kept secret to share with you today and here it is:  I am still a Real Boy.
Now, I know that is not generally considered a good thing. But I hasten to assure everyone that I never but never, but NEVER go outside, and I am a perfect gentleman in the litter box department.
So what's up you may ask? Well, here's the thing: I am so strong and so fast and so wiggly and acrobatic that the Human has in the past been unable to stuff me into one a them troll boxes kitty carriers. I have, however, mellowed considerably since the last time she tried, plus she has purchased a Large New Container. So she is thinking (hahaha--I just LOVE it when she "thinks") that perhaps this summer we might give it another try.

We'll just see about that, Kitties!

Oh my, Spitty, that is ILLUMINATING!!!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Ooooooohhhhhh....so that explains it all! And yeah, that bit of information sure was deserving of the Illuminating Blogger Award!

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

Waaa! You are NOT supposed to pick Binga! SO not fair!!!!

The one boycat my human had as an adult (coincidentally a black kitty, but shorthaired so not really like you) remained "intact" for far longer than he should have been, but my human was lazy, young and broke and he was indoor-only and never caused any "problems" like you might expect. Eventually she did cart him off to have his operation though.

Ellen Whyte said...

Hehehe, we like your style! And concats on the Award.

Angel Simba said...

Well, Spitty, that fact sure IS illuminating. Especially because I did not realize even when we shared naps in my Red Beddie. Which certainly shows what a gentleman you are.

Thank you for the award. I will set my human to deciding which of the many illuminating facts about be to reveal.

Angel Simba said...

Pee Ess: that was Audrey in the last comment, not Simba.

Marg said...

Well nothing wrong with being a boy Spitty as long as you are not out making other little boys and girls.
Conga rats on the award. Love your enlightening news. Take care.

Brian's Home Blog said...

You are a real Royal Boy Spitty! Congrats on the award, you really have earned it!

Ivan from WMD said...

So...you could have little royal princes if the opportunity arose? Oh my!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! I know you shared that fact with me before when we've snuggled. Since you're purrfect the way Cod made you, I see no reason to put you through it now. Love those man bits even if I'm not able to keep my end of the deal.

Thanks for the award. I don't think I can top your illuminating fact but I'll try to keep it interesting.

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Oh my... I never knew! That was very illuminating, indeed! Even my sister Constance has been you-know-whatted and she avoids goin' to the doctor like a fish avoids the desert.

And good choices for passing along the award... picking all girls... you'll get a date for the anipalprom for sure!


The Island Cats said...

Oh Spitty! Thanks for passing this award onto me! I feel so special to be considered one of your ladycats. :)

But really, Spitty...you're still "all" there?? That's something! Y'know, I'm a holy terror when I get stuffed into the evil PTU, but I've never managed to avoid it. I can't wait to see what happens next time your human tries to get you in it!


Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

Congrats on your award! But...how does the woman take you to the vet???

Avalon's Garden and Mewsings of Garden Cottage Cats said...

♥ Penelope ♥


Ah ha now we understand Spitty!!


Stacy Hurt said...

WELL! It is little wonder that all the LadyCats are aflutter (when they aren't being LadyCats that is) Goodness me, when you do have your, um...er... trim; it will be front page news & I can only imagine the amount of blog hits you'll have then!

A Tonl said...

FaRAdaY: *bug eyed look* Oh my CAT! Do @Rosieandcheeto know you still has your CHEEZBALLS???

They would be wanting to swing a deal, fer sure!

Maxwell: oh dear, I'm more worried about Allie thinking she's a Woman of Mystery...

Katie Isabella said...

Spitty, Admiral knew all along, didn't she? She told Katie too. We thought it was soooo dangerous. It added to your aura. Like CK, we couldn't keep up our end of things but we like to dream. xoxoxox

Willow said...

Spitty that was quite the well kept secret through you have given hints to being all boy.

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

You know, Spitty, that explains soooo much about you...Sassy wants to know how she can become a Ladycat of Mystery.

meowmeowmans said...

Concatulations on that well-deserved award, King Spitty!

As far as you still being a real boy ... this explains a lot!

GLOGIRLY said...

Now that IS some juicy news, Spitty! No WONDER you are such a flirt. hehehe!
xo Katie

Mark's Mews (Marley, Lori, Loki, and Binq) said...

First, concatulashuns on the awardie!

Second, we bet yer Mom putsibreakfast in the open PTU one morning and you will be all sleepy an stuff an go IN! Presto-chango, no more boy-bits!

Oui Oui said...

Well, that explains a lot!

When Oui Oui damaged her cornea and had to go to the vets last month, the mom got her in the PTU but she was literally hanging upside down from the grate at the top of the carrier. Boy was that fun!

Oui Oui said...

Sorry, concats by the way! A better kitty couldn't have won!

Unknown said...

Oh Spitty! A Real MAN Cat!

And me posted a picture of yous and me at the Debutante ball.
Now me must goes and tries to read some posts. There is 167 in my reader!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

no wonder you're such a ladycats man... Well, truth to be told, Star was unaltered years longer than she should have been too...

Ok, Spitty, stop reading, this is for your momma. I have had tons of trouble getting kitties in carriers too but now I know a trick. If you dont have a top loading carrier, put them in butt first, they cant use their paws to keep from being shoved in that way. Poor kitties, dont know what to do, but much much easier on the human!
