Etrigan Von Asshole, folks:

Asshole Cat is an Asshole 02

He's kind of pants at cuddling.

Asshole Cat is an Asshole 01

He likes to chew on Jandar's necklace.

Asshole Cat is an Asshole 03

Look at his pretty ear.


Etrigan In the Window 01

A more typical expression.

Etrigan In the Window 02

He's black, so he kind of flattens out, but he actually has a rather long nose. So in person he doesn't look quite as kittenish as he does in some pics. He's a big boy. Average, I suppose, for a boy kitty, and smaller than Smooch, but we've had girl cats, so he seems really big.

And, finally, a video.

Or a link if that does not work.

He purrs the whole time. Also, he falls off the chair about halfway through when I was trying to blow in his ear to get him to do this thing he does where he goes "MRRRRR!" in this kind of pitiful way that makes me laugh so hard. The other thing it makes him do is roll around like a dumbass, so he rolled right off the edge.

Warning: I say "Asshole" A LOT. Also, I baby talk. And I repeat myself when I baby talk. Because cats like to hear their names. And his name is "Asshole."

The video cut me off. The last line should be "'Cause you're an asshole."

LJ is being stupid and I'm too tired to dick with it. He's a nice looking cat! Please do Smooch when you get a chance! :)

Yup. We continue to have twins. Only Nox is really, REALLY talkative. Like, all the time.

Yeah, Etrigan is very quiet. Smooch is the noisy one. Which should not be the case, because Persians/Himalayans are supposed to be quiet, and Etrigan very obviously has some Siamese ancestry in there somewhere (he has a tiny tiny tiny kink in the tippy tip of his tail).

They do look SO MUCH alike!

Does Nox have upper arms and shoulders like a beast? Because Etrigan is ripped, for a cat.

Yes. Homeboy is the most muscular cat I've ever met and makes 7 foot jumps easy peasy.

YES. Etrigan can hit the top of the kitty tree in one leap. Usually does it in two, but if there's a bug in the house . . . yeah.

His calf muscles are the size of chicken drumsticks almost.

Wow, you guys have the younger siblings of my Bucky (Buckminster Charles mylastname hislastname III). He's 15 now but in his prime he could hit a 6-7' jump from a sitting position no problem. He was crazy muscular, especially in his hind legs, and he's still all glossy and black. He's very verbal and very smart. When I lived in an apartment with an enclosed courtyard he'd make it to the window ledges of the 2nd floor in two jumps and then visit the upstairs neighbors, window ledge to window ledge while threatening the birds and squirrels. He's in his retirement now, but he's still the boss of the house.

I swear, that is what it looks like, every time I see pics. They look so much alike it's crazy.

My sister's current cat Jeffrey is more often called Shithead. Her cat before that, named Sneakers, I renamed Demon Spawn early on and that was what the family called him for all his many years. Mine are all four individually and severally referred to as monster(s). Miss Kitty Fantastico (my best friend's cat that I inherited, I would never have named her that) is further called Grinchy.

Cats know perfectly well when you're talking to them, regardless of what name you're using at the time.

When we adopted our Hooligan, his foster mom told us that one of his alternative names would probably be "Shithead". We already have a "Demon Spawn", so that one's taken. Though the Hooligan richly deserves it.

Beautiful. I adore black cats. I still mourn my black Max. He was wonderful He used to sleep with his "arms" around my neck and his nose nestled in my ear. He purred all night long. His much littler sister Maxine (or "Little Max") was the daintiest and most beautiful little girl. Both long long departed for the rainbow bridge. I miss them both so much.

Now, I have little orange spawns and a Seal masquerading as a cat.

OMG Max sounds like the best cat ever. T_T I love cats that give good snuggle. That's, like, the only thing about Etrigan I would change, besides making him not asthmatic because I hate seeing him uncomfortable. I wish he was better at cuddling. He just stinks at it. I love him anyway. Asshole cat.

My parent's dog responds to Butthead. Mine responds to such undignified things as Fuzzbutt and Foofypants. The new dog, Bailey, is being called Asshole enough that I suspect she'll start answering to it. She gets called that because she's very needy and often pushes my dog out of the way when she wants attention. The funny thing is, with water and toys (even her favorite toys), she tends to defer to my fuzzy boy. She's kind of halfway in love with him, and he's very 'meh' over her. He doesn't seem to really dislike her, but he doesn't like her, either.

I dunno, Chihiro's a girl kitty and she seems about the same size. He's much sleeker than my fuzzball, though. Beautiful, vain little thing, isn't he? Or he would be vain, if he had any thoughts in his darling head.

Chihiro can't jump to save her life- at my parents' house, there are baby gates to keep their cocker spaniel out of rooms he likes to go pee in (he's an asshole) and Chihiro prefers to go under them, or very, very pathetically climb over them. I think it's more due to her lack of depth perception than anything else, though.

Mine is a tortoiseshell, but under a year old and tiny. She would be tinier if she hadn't hadn't gotten out, stayed out for four days and came back pregnant. She couldn't have been more than 6 months when we found her going through our trash a few months ago.

We figured if she had a home she wouldn't be going through our (or anyone's) trash looking for food, so we gave a her a bowl of food and some milk and let her inside until she wanted to go outside again. She disappeared for a week and came back. We gave her a collar with a bell and named her Firestorm due to her coloring, then we found out it fit her temperament and then we discovered her love of fire.

The only name I tend to call her other than her name is 'Little Brat' due to how she sometimes behaves and treats my husband's nephew's cat Louie.

Ahahahahah -- omg, you laugh like me!! That tiny little bit of Muttley-wheeze and then an out-loud laugh -- love it!

Also, this video is made of PRICELESS AWESOME.

Zuul answers to "Cranktopus." Because.

I really need to make more kitty-videos -- yours is priceless!! And Etrigan really IS a handsome boy (even if he is, so I hear, an asshole.) *grin*

Yeah, that's my "laughing at someone's expense" laugh, I think. The cats get it a lot. <3

"Cranktopus" is awesome. That can go in the bestiary of nicknames alongside Fish's "Thunderoceros" and Tazendra's "Wooly Little." XD

Hee! Yeah, my cats get it a lot, too ;)

I love your bestiary of cat nam-- okay, Zuul decided to inform me that if I ever tried to call her something as undignified as "Thunderoceros," she would give me a small sample of the pain to come -- she just randomly sunk her claws into my foot, which was next to her on the bed.

Just *poke* *flex* *remove* "You know what you did, human!"
