Good Day to Everyone!

We had already attempted to post this morning, but it seems Blogger has misplaced Our efforts.

C'est la vie...

Today We would like to respond to Sir Pounce, of the House of Katnippia, who "tagged" HRH Princess Marigold to reveal five puuursonal facts about herself. The Princess had a bit of difficulty choosing only 5, but with the Queen Mother's help, We believe we have five facts that may entertain you all!

Fact #1.

Princess Marigold has quite the refind palate, and especially likes salmon, as prepared by Queen Mum. She and Her brother, HRH Prince Brutus will come to inspect Queen Mum's plate, and being quite amused by their curiosity, QM will carefully take bits of the salmon, cool them, and offer each about 4 bits. We are about to share a confidence with you, as what We are about to reveal may be misinterpreted as unseemly behaviour for a Young Princess. The Princess has a very healthy appetite, and will finish her portion, and go over to her brother's portion and finish his off, as well!

Fact #2.

In keeping with the first fact revealed, Princess Marigold enjoys serving as sous chef to the QM when She is preparing meals, on Cook's half-day off. The Princess will climb the Queen Mum's robes until she can perch on Her shoulder, and will offer advice as to seasoning, side dishes, wine selections and the like. This is a trait that must have been learned in Her time with Our Most Gracious Godmother Deb, who is quite the Gourmet Cook! In her youth, the Princess must have enjoyed the aromas from Godmother Deb's kitchen!

Fact #3.

It is well known amongst the Household that the Princess has developed a fine technique of Classic Greco-Roman wrestling! This she learned from Her brother, as He bonded with the Princess from birth, and would play-wrestle with her. Being a petite 4 pounds, she often will "take down" the Prince, who weighs in at 5.7 pounds! At times, the Queen Mum will offer the Princess an unfair advantage by holding the Prince down, but that is rare, only when QM has had a nip too many of Fine Port wine...

Fact #4.

Princess Marigold has a favourite toy amonst the many Our Godmother Deb has made gifts of, and it is one she has had from her very early days; a shiny green mouse which rattles when it is tossed. She also will play happily with the plastic ring that comes from a container of milk. After a time, Queen Mum will toss it into the rubbish bin, to prevent any possibility of ingestion. The Princess will sniff about for it a bit, then move on to an authentic toy, one safe to play with.

Fact #5.

The Princess conducts Herself in a true Royal fashion whilst out in public. Last week, she had occasion to visit the Veterinarian for her shots, and was SO brave, she continued to purr, even whilst the injections were being administered. We were Most Pleased!

In general, Princess Marigold is growing into quite the lovely Royal of Refined Manners and Sensibilities. HM Queen Emily sees to her education to insure a Lovely Adult Princess.

We thank you for visiting with Us today and hope you have a Pleasant week ahead!

What a sweet princess you are Marigold. The picture of you is so cute. Queen Emily is teaching you very well. Loved reading about what you like to do. Just keep on directing QM in her cooking and make sure she is making the stuff you like so much the right way. But I do think you better let brother Brutus eat all his own food, he is a growing boy. Oh well, guess you are a growing girl as well.

Princess Marigold, you are growing up so quickly and I'm glad to hear that you're holding your own over Prince Brutus and not letting him get the best of you.

Princess Marigold, you are a very beautiful kitty. happy to hear that you can put your brother in his place, and still be the purr-fect lil princess.

brandi said...

You are indeed a sweet princess. We are so lucky to get such beautiful pictures of you. But you probably should let Brutus eat all his own food. He IS your protector, is he not??? He needs to grow into the job a little more!

And, congratulations on the comment moderation! Hope this helps mom!

Good Evening, furriends!
You are right...perhaps Marigold does bully her brother around at times...but it's so much fun, and Brutus is a good sport about it! He is a loving, playful soul, always in a good mood!

Brandi, Thank You for the idea of comment moderation! It DOES make my mind rest easier! We were reading comments on The Daily Kitten today, and 2 deadful individuals have been posting there, one a self-described cat-hater...We have to wonder, is this misgiuded soul so lonely on a Sunday afternoon to spend time antagonizing cat lovers? No, We do NOT want an occurance of that sort on this site! Cat to Bean, Bean to Bean, Cat to Cat...we wish only friendly, funny, kind comments for everyone to enjoy with a smile!
What IS funny; now, WE have to play "word verification" too!

Rose said...

Oh yes, one more thing...The Prince does have an appointment for his hoo-ha-ectomy this Thursday, as does the Princess Marigold, to undergo her procedure as well...
We expect TRH Brutus and Marigold to be quite brave in the face of this experience. Your Purrayers are, of course, always welcome and most appreciated!

I'm the little petite girl kitty too, but I take food from my brother and sister all the time. Plus I jump out and attack them and wrestle them to the ground. You go Girl!

.....ahem......Marigold will be getting her 'lady garden' removed..
....hyak.........................

Rose said...

Hello Friends!

Rosie, THAT's it! ML reminded me of the name of the procedure Prince Brutus will be having, the "hoo-ha-ectomy". But I did not know the name of Princess Marigold's procedure-the
"Lady-Garden-ectomy". I'm greatly relieved...thank you, Rosie!

We're rather sad at the moment. We just learned that Trixie Meezer
has crossed over to meet her brothers at The Rainbow Bridge.
We are sad for her Bean family's loss and pray for their grief to be bearable. However, We also have
brothers and sisters at The Bridge,
and knowing they are free of all pain and physical impediments, and are in Our Lord's Presence lightens Our hearts.
Please let us all to continue our purrayers for Luna's safe return to her Family. And let us keep Trixie and her Bean family in mind and heart as all have an adjustment to make.
Have a peaceful, Blessed Day, Our friends.

Marigold, sweet princess, I love the picture of you in the window. You are getting so big! I'm so happy that the Queen Mum adopted you and Brutus. You look so healthy and happy! Kisses from your Godmother!
