Whiskers & Meme

DKM says I have white elbow whiskers…

What? I'm cleaning...

Here’s a close up – what do you think? Does anyone else have elbow whiskers?

Elbow whiskers

7 Things Meme


  1. Every night before DKM goes to sleep, I must clean her hand and then I curl up against her neck with my head on her hand and fall asleep.
  2. I do not let anyone touch my tummy.
  3. I spend hours cleaning my toes every day; I’m very fastidious about toe cleaning.
  4. It took me two years after living with DKM to trust her to hold me for more than 30 seconds.
  5. I like to tickle DKM’s face with my whiskers to wake her up in the morning and then I curl up in her arms and fall. asleep. I will not let her get up in the morning unless I have done this and she has scratched my ears for at least 30 minutes.
  6. I love listening to Chet Baker and Craig Armstrong. If their music is on, I start to purr.
  7. I’m a one person cat. I’m very protective of my human. I don’t like to share DKM with anyone and I get very jealous if other humans or cats try to play with her.

Fiona Bun

  1. My most favorite bun in the world (next to my BoyBun) is my brother; I am very protective of him.
  2. I love it when DKM gives me head rubs; I would let her rub my head for hours, if her hand didn’t get so tired after 30 minutes.
  3. I sleep with my eyes open and in a bunny loaf. I don’t flop very often.
  4. I love to do binkies up and down the hallway.
  5. My most favorite things to eat in the world are bananas and Italian parsley.
  6. DKM held me in her hands when I was 3 days old. I knew that day, she would be my human.
  7. I love to steal DKM’s Netflix envelopes and chomp them up.

Orlando Bun

  1. I have one line of brown fur over my right eye that DKM calls my eyebrow.
  2. I sleep in a flop next to Fiona and she cleans my ears for me until I fall asleep.
  3. My favorite food is anything but I really love Basil and tomatoes. Because of this, DKM calls me her Italian Bun.
  4. I play catch with DKM.
  5. I protect Fiona and our nesting box from Sophia who tries to steal our hay.
  6. I have the best GirlBun, my honey bunny Mrs. Sniffles, Bunny Rabbit.
  7. DKM sometimes calls me thumper boy because if she or Sophia is doing something I do not like I will thump!

  8. Great lists! It sounds like you all have DKM wrapped around your paws…as it should be. She is a very nice mommy we can tell.
    I’m starting to get white whiskers and some white on my legs. I’m going to think of it as “sunkissed” from my sunbeams.

    I am also protective of my tummy, but mom can rub it gently. This took a while to work up the trust.
    Fiona & Lando, what fun buns you are!! Binkies & head rubs & yummy food must be the bunny staff of life!

  12. Thanks for writing about me, my sweet BoyBun! I especially loved note number 2 – that you and Fiona sleep right next to each other and she grooms your ears. That sounds FURRY adorable.

  16. The Spice Cats do not have elbow whiskers. Yours are so cool!

    What lovely elbow whiskers you have! They really are the same type of whiskers that you have on your face. The formal name for them is ‘vibrissae’ and they work just like the facial ones. They are there to tell you more about what you are walking through when you are hunting :) All cats have them down the back of their front legs.

  19. What fine elbow whiskers you have. It’s enough to make me wish to be a tuxedo cat!

    Orlando and Fiona, what great pals you are. I wish I had a friend who let me snuggle with them.
