Frootbat Friday

When Mommy told me what Frootbat Friday meant, I knew it was the day for me! For my first Frootbat Friday, I have to tell you about my nickname and how I got it. It all started when I was just a baby - here's a picture of me, taken on my first night with Mommy and Daddy.



Wasn't I a cute kitten -with big feet and even bigger ears?? I was told by Aunt Susie that I would grow into my feet and ears and that I would be a "Moose Kitty" when I got older, whatever that means (Mommy says it has to do with me being a big kitty - I weigh 15 pds and do not have an ounce of fat on me - I is just big). Because of my ears Mommy gave me the nickname "Jack Rabbit" although she often shortens it to just "Rabbit." I asked her once why she called me Rabbit when I am obviously a cat and she showed me this picture of an animal called a jack rabbit.


Are my ears really THAT big? Well, the good news is that I did grow into my feet. I think I kinda grew into my ears too - what do you think?


Anyway, I like my frootbat ears. It gives me character and I can always hear Dante sneaking up on me to attack. Do you like my ears?

You have very handsome ears and paws! I think you gre into them nicely. You were a cute kitten. Your mommy is silly calling you a rabbit! (Even though we kitties love the bunny kicks.)

You have very nice ears. :) You have grown into them - you were more of a frootbat when you were an adorable little kitten - but they suit you. I love my frootbat ears. My humans love my frootbat ears too. :)

I think your ears suit you perfectly. And I enjoyed hearing all about you as a kitten.

DEBRA said...

You are a very handsome kitty, and yes I think you did grow into your feet and ears. We are a teeny tiny bit partial to tuxedoes so we do think you are extra special.

Sunny's Mommy said...

You definitely grew into your ears and paws. You don't have frootbat ears anymore. But your paws are still big. That's probably why you grew in to being a 15 lb. cat. You were meant to be that big ;-)

Jimmy Joe said...

You have very good ears, Captain Jack. I got big, white paws, too. Momma says I can't get up to 15 lbs., though. I'm stuck at 14.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

I'm a tuxie, too, but I don't think I ever had frootbat ears.

I don't actually think your ears are that big.... But they are definitely beautiful!

Lux said...

I think you have perfect ears. It's especially good that you can hear well out of them! :)

It's furry good to be a frootbat. I was never a frootbat, but Lucky Charmz an' Cocoa Puff are both wanna-meezers who had ears of the "frootbat" type when they were just little bleebs ... They grew into their ears quite nicely.

I don't know what Frootbat Friday means, but I like your ears, Jack.
Some of the other kitties here have huge ears, but yours are not too big, I think they are purrfect!
