Here is my second cat, Munchkin. He is a Flame-Point Himalyan, age 4 1/2 years. After I had had Shorty for awhile, I decided that it was not fair, him being left in the apartment alone all day while I was at work. He needed a playmate, so I started looking for another kitten to join our little family. An old friend of mine bred Himalyans, and I decided to give her a call. Munchkin immediately struck my eye, because he was different from the other kittens. The rest of the litter were seal-points. And the breeder told me if she had to choose, she would go with the flame-point. So, I took him home with me.
Imediately Shorty was threatened by another cat entering HIS house. So, there was alot of hissing and growling going on, but soon they developed a brotherly bound between the two of them.
How Muchkin got his name. Originally the breeder called him Prince Albert, but that was just too prissy for my taste. Again, here I am trying to name this poor cat. Heck, Shorty didnt even have a real name yet! And one day the two of them were playing, and though Shorty was still a kitten too, Munchkin was just so much smaller than him. So.....what's smaller than a "Shorty"? but a Munchkin! I still have never sent in his kitten papers, because I just could not come up with the prissy name that they need for kitten papers! Does that make me a bad momma? Nicknames for Munchkin include, Monkey, Pumpkin, Precious, and Pumpkin Pie.
Munchkins favorite past times include, but not limited to: watching the birds and squirrels in amasement while he makes this clicking noise in his throat, playing with his stuffed mice, sleeping on top of the afghan in the back of my bedroom closet, hiding from Shorty, and his terrorists attacks, and eating momma's houseplants.
