Monday Meme on Thursday Thirteen


My special friend, SlyCat, tagged me for a meme. So even though this is Thursday Thirteen, I am going to play Monday Meme.

How did I get my name???

Oh, that's a good story that starts out even before I was born. My pet human worked on the Naval Base in Ventura County, and she made friends with April.


April always had candy at her desk. One day, my pet human visited April, and she had a bag of Skittles. So my pet human poured some out, and then separated all the colors into neat little piles, because that's how she likes to eat them.

April laughed and laughed and laughed!!!!!!! Pretty soon it was quite a joke. April would buy huge 5 and 10 pound bags of Skittles and give them to the pet human.
Soon, the kitchen cabinets were stuffed with Skittles.

Later, after my pet human moved back to San Diego, April found me scrounging for food in the warehouse on base. I had trouble being nice to Auntie April's other cats, and so my pet human took me to her house.


So, of course I got named Skittles!

I tag the following cats:
DKM ( AND the Fluffies)
Gretchen
Gigolo Kitty

Hello Skittles, from Australia. We like to take Her Maltesers. But we are supposed to just hide them, not eat them. Trixie is in her bad books for this:
