My true confessions...

Well, Monica has tagged me for Marilyn MonREOW's True Confessions meme. Trouble is, I confessed most of my confession-worthy deeds in my seven facts meme, like my greasiness and the fact that I wasn't properly toilet-trained until I was two. But never fear, cats of the blogosphere, there's always more dirt in the Pablo Files...
So... my true confessions:
1) This is related to my pre-toilet-trained days, when I used to poo in corners... a lot. When I went to live with Kate, her housemate Rachel nicknamed me... Pablo Poopants. Part of the reason I shaped up with my toilet training was to live down that name.

2) When I was a youngcat, I disgraced myself by jumping up onto the lap of a dinner guest and proceeding to eat her delicious meal from her plate. You snooze, you lose, Jan!

3) Like most of you out there, I jump up on tables and benches when the housepeople aren't around. But I've also got a thoroughfare. Nick and Kate call it the 'kitchen bench', but I know better. It' s my thoroughfare between the loungeroom and the rest of the apartment. Who needs doorways when you've got a multi-level thoroughfare?
[Here's Nick cluttering up my thoroughfare by making jam. Photo taken from the loungeroom.]

4) Okay, this is a biggie. You know the West Hobart Tigers? The Australian Rules Footy team that I captain/coach in the Southern Feline Football league? Well... nocat in the SFFL actually knows how to play footy. We have teams and training sessions and we get together for matches, but we don't know how to play. We're working on it though, and that's the main thing! I'm actually trying to get star Australian Football League player Matthew Richardson (a Tassie-born footballer who plays for the Richmond Tigers) to come down and do a training clinic with us.

5) I have a pinup of a Balinese hottie from Cat Fancy magazine on the fridge next to my food bowl!
Don't worry, I only buy it for the articles! You can also see my picture of Amos and Heidi, my favourite Garfield comic (Panel 1, Jon:'Who knows? Maybe there are beings on other planets?' Panel 2, Garfield: 'Yeah...' Panel 3, Garfield: 'Chickens would be nice...'), and above that is a picture of Axel rolling around on the floor of his Nonna and Nonno's house.

So that's my true confessions! I tag Phoebe, because I don't think she's done hers yet, and I tag Axel too, for a very specific confession... I wanna hear about his breakout at Melbourne Airport!

Cheers,
--Pabs

Hahahaha! I can just see the whole football team standing around ready to play, but nocat knows the rules! Keep trying, you will figure it all out someday. In the meantime, you can just have fun.

Parker said...

Pablo Poopants?!?!?! Wow, that would take all 9 lives to live down! You 'da man for confessing that one!

Marie the Defender said...

Wow - you are my fan! I loved what you did in #2...I hope you can show me the trick of eating off of someone's plate....

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

oh yeah, that is a great list Pablo. I don't think you disgraced yourself by eating from the plate, I think the human just needed to be shown how to appreciate her meal....
I agree with Parker, Pablo Poopants? That took some guts to admit to. Not the pooping in the corners, jus the name...

Monica said...

Pablo, your true confessions were very provocative. I snub the people who dared to call you Pablo Poopants! I really like your kitchen thoroghfare. Nick should not clutter it up so much. Or at least he should share some of his jam with you. Is jam any good? And I have complete confidence that you will obtain the proper instruction for your football team. The training that you do is just the preparation phase...

But perhaps you should change your pinup poster. Wouldn't you prefer to look at a picture of me while you are eating?

Phoebe said...

Thank you for tagging me, Pablo. I will get to work on my list right away. I hope you won't be disappointed in me from what you find out...

Pablo said...

Actually, Monica, I don't look at those pictures while I eat... I'm too busy looking at my food! Oh, and I haven't tasted Nick's jam, or any jam, for that matter. I don't like fruit or sugar, and that's all that jam is. If it was chicken jam, that would be another story. The jam Nick made was nectarine jam, which even he admitted was a pretty unorthodox jam to make. There are still half a dozen jars of it in the fridge, so I don't think that Nick and Kate like it too much.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

*giggle*! I loved reading your confessions. Yes, a multi-levelled thoroughfare sounds delightful -- I like to jump, too, anywhere and everywhere. Who needs floors?

And thank you so much for that delightful Marilyn Monroe quote you told me about on my blog -- I'm going to put it in my sidebar!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Jeter and Mickey said...

Dear Pablo,
I am very happy to be a fan.
I am interested in your pin-up! I think I'll ask if I can put a picture of Marilyn MonREOW next to my bowl. Meeee-yowwwww.
Mick
ps--i just read Marilyn's comment. I saw the quote in her sidebar. It made me run out and find a Mickey Mantle quote for mine.

Pablo said...

Glad you liked the quote, Marilyn! I'm off to check Mick's blog for his Mickey Mantle quote.

Ali & Fiona said...

Yes we do look a bit a like, us tabbies are a handsome bunch!

Zoey and the furballs (the Zoo Crew) said...

Wow, maybe my Mommy and Daddy will start calling the furballs embarassing names to get them to stop pooing in the corners! I mean if it worked for you, maybe it will work for them?

Axel and Manny said...
