How I Got My Name Meme!

My sisfur Marilyn taggied me fur the How I Got My Name Meme! She usually don't tag me fur memes, but I insisted cuz this one looked like so much fun. I told her if she don't tag me, I'll drive her crazy next time she's inna litterboxie!

I know it sounds like I'm named aftur this fella:

(Chairman Mao Tse-Tung)

But that ain't quite it, ecksept in a tongue-in-cheeky kind of way. Here's why I'm Chairman Mao (Chair + Man + Mao, but I'm not MAOing in this pickshure, I'm sleepin'):

  • I like layin' in chairs, so there's the "Chair" part.
  • I'm a Mancat, so there's the "Man" part.
  • Lastly but not leastly, I talk a lot. And when I talk, I say MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO!!!!! So there's the "Mao" part.

It didn't take Momma and Daddy long to learn these things about me. I showed up as a stray kitty, and before I was brought into the housie, I hung around with Daddy in his garage and helped him do manly things. I always took his chair. I had my walnuts back then, so it was klear I was a mancat. And I said MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO MAO alla time.

So, takin' note of all these things, Momma sez, "He's Chairman Mao."

And Daddy said, "Yup!"

So that was that, hehehe. And furry soon aftur, I was tooked to the vet and I lost my walnuts, but then I got to come inside to live with my Momma and Daddy.... and three SISFURS!

I'm gonna tag my sweetiepie Ariel and my buddy Henry Helton.

I had thought it was a tribute to your Asian ancestry (being Siamese) originally but then you mentioned that you always go Mao Mao Mao and I thought ! AHA! That's why he's Chairman Mao--although I had no idea about the rest! Nice name!
