Jimmy Joe tagged me for the 7 P's
The Rules: In an attempt to get to know fellow bloggers a little better, this new meme was started called the 7 P’s. Fill out the 7 P’s and tag up to five blogs that you read on a regular basis.
Dedication: I've written this with the lovely Anastasia and puppy cat Oscar in mind, both of whom have gone to a happier place.
Passion: sad to say but it's munchies. I love them. I go straight to my munchie bowl as soon as I come through the cat flap.
Purpose: to keep the Wimbledon mouse population under control.
Pursuit: I'm always trying to catch cheeky squirrel and give him what for, but he always manages to elude me. Squirrels are a lot faster and more agile than those luscious little mice.
Position: I'm going to have to sit on the fence on this one - literally (see above)
Pummeling: I don't do it often but sometimes the passion overtakes me and I go wild with pummeling fever.
Progress: I am a complete Luddite and don't believe in progress.
Personality: I'm a roughy toughy girl cat and like to be independent. I am very fond of the humans but the relationship is very much on my terms.

We went to a special pet friendly hotel where I had my
own 'en suite' litter tray.
I wasn't allowed outside but I could sit inside
and watch the seagulls which was rather good fun.
This is a view of Walton on the Naze (near where we stayed).
British seaside towns are famous for their Piers and
Walton on the Naze is no exception. Many of them are
falling down but some are in full use and many
are listed buildings.
There's lots of fish and chip shops at the seaside and most
of them have their own resident cat,
so no leftovers for me, sadly.
This is a special kind of fish restaurant; it specialises in
jellied eels, which are a delicacy around these parts.
The humans aren't great fans but I love them.
And these are local beach huts.
Families have owned these for many years.
Inside you usually find a little kitchen area, a day bed,
a table and chairs and somewhere to change.
They cost quite a bit to buy, especially the ones in prime
locations and are usually painted fancy colours.

Well I don't actually 'use' nip but I do have my own nip substitute. It's a little browny green moss I find underneath the grass.
So, here's my list:
- run around the garden in circles
- run around the house in circles
- do loads and loads of rolls and fully montys
- try and nip human ankles (that's probably why it's called catnip I guess)
- get the munchies then fall asleep

When Dan found out he was going to inherit a fortune after his sickly father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with. So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful blonde he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away.
"I may look like just an ordinary man," he said as he walked up to her, "but in just a week or two, my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars."
Impressed, the blonde went home with him that evening and, three days later ...
... she became his stepmother.
Who said blondes are dumb? FAZ

I was tagged yesterday by Skittles to do a mememe based on Eight Random Things About Me, this is quite hard to do because I am a very organised cat and am not inclined to random tendencies.
Nevertheless, I have thought about this long and hard and have been able to come up with some things that may be of interest.
1. I am named after a suburb of Liverpool (the home of the Beatles).
2. I never eat beef, chicken or ham.
3. I absolutely love yoghurt.
4. I don't like to be picked up or cuddled, but I don't mind sitting on laps when I am in the mood.
5. Both my humans work in advertising. They develop advertising for toilet paper, paper towels, aeroplanes, lingerie, insurance and cars to name a few.
6. I was born in Kingston (Kingston Upon Thames not Kingston in Jamaica).
7. I am a coward at heart and always run away when I see other cats in my garden.
8. I always know when my humans arrive home because I recognise the sound of their car and go outside to meet them (even if they park two streets away).
I tag Phoebe and Monica from Pablo Fan Club

Do you like my space suit?
The Scientist beans at NASAC adapted it to accommodate my tail and my whiskers. It is very comfortable and I may wear it back on earth for my confrontations with Hefty Tabby. FAZ
P.S. yesterday I shut my tail in the airlock - in space no one can hear you scream!

In the meantime, I have been checking out my lunar module cat basket. It has been designed especially for me to land on the moon in order to check out the Luscious Little Space Mice I hope to find there. As you can see, it is a magnificent feat of engineering.

1. How long will you be in space?
FAZ: As long as it takes to get to the moon, check it out and come back.
2. How did you get selected for this space mission?
FAZ: I volunteered. I know I am not the first cat in space (as there have been Russian cats who have gone before me) but I hope to be the first cat to land on the moon and discover the Luscious Little Space Mice.
3. What do you eat when you are in space?
FAZ: I have specially prepared space munchies which were developed by very smart scientist beans back on earth. This is what they look like.
4. What do you do when you need "to go"?
FAZ: I also have a specially developed anti-matter gravity-induced litter tray. The original plan was to jettison the "space waste" on a regular basis but it took me ages to clean the windows afterwards.
I hope that helps my blogging pals understand a little bit more about what it's like in space.
TO FAZ-SPACE AND BEYOND!

Here I am, walking towards the launch pad about to become the latest CATronaut in space. To take one giant leap for feline kind and proudly go where no FAZ has gone before.
It's taken days of specialist training (unlike human astronauts who have to train for years).
My mission is to discover if there are any Luscious Little Space Mice or Cheeky Luna Squirrels on the moon.
Here's my specially converted shuttle named the Litterbox during our successful take off at O Six Hundred hours this morning.
I will be transmitting regular broadcasts via the blog to my earthbound friends, so you can all find our what I discover. Wish me luck. FAZ

I know from other blogging pals that their humans also seem to get upset with these early morning wake up calls for some reason.
This device is how my human resolved our little early morning contretemps.
I now get fed 'automatically' at 4.30 AM every morning which just about keeps me going until 7.30 AM.

My back was turned for a second and next thing I know Cheeky Squirrel is on my lawn ...
