Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from August 2009 titled:


Are you calling me a clown?

Yesterday Mom was cleaning out the computer desk and way back on the bottom shelf she found very old back issues of Cat Fancy. She was very happy to have found this one dating back to December of 2003 because the feature breed of the month was the Turkish Angora. My ladycat, Baby Patches, and I are this breed.

Some quotes from the article:
  • "They are very athletic. They do things that other cats wouldn't think of doing. They're almost like clowns."
  • "To me, they're almost the border collie of the cat world. They need to be challenged."
  • "Turkish Angoras love to be on shoulders and doors and they can do it in one jump. And they rarely miss."
  • Friendly busybodies.

    One thing the article didn't talk about was how vocal we are. Mom says I have a meow vocabulary that is unending. She can also imitate all of mine so well that people walking down the hallway must think we have two of me! And when you walk into our house, I will sing at the top of my lungs how happy I am that you came to visit me.


  1. MEOW
    I'm not a Turkish Angora but I'm pretty vocal too. Mom always wonders what I am saying half the time.

  2. We didn't realise your meow was so versatile Minchie.

  3. My human's boyfriend's brother used to have Turkish Angoras and my human liked them quite a bit! (But then, what cat doesn't she like, MOL!)

    I'm not terribly vocal myself, but I have a sweet little meow.

  4. Minchie, you make such a cute clown. I learned some things about you. I didn't know you were such talker. Annie has really starting talking more the last few months but not to your extent. Mainly she meows her displeasure or excitement for treats.

    Enjoy the warmer temps and sunshine!

  5. Minchie somehow we didn't realize you were that talkative! We bet you communicate very well with your Mom!

  6. We would love to hear you sing, Minchie!

  7. I didn't know you were a talker pal. My Sister Gracie yacks all the time!

  8. The border collie of the cat world? We had never heard that one before!

  9. That was interesting to find the old magazine. Your mum deserved that raspberry for calling you a clown.

  10. Hello Laila and Minchie. We are Whipple and pepper, and we are still meeting cat bloggers in the blogging world. We are also quite talkative. I, Whipple, always have stuff to say. And even Pepper is talking more now. We will be back to visit you both! - Whipple and pepper

  11. We didn't know you liked to sing, Minchie!

  12. Minchie, that is so cool that you're a talker! Mommy wants to visit and chat with you.

  13. Minchie you are talented and beautiful!


Meow at us!
