Thursday Thirteen #10

Thirteen Ways I differ from a PIG
As you may remember, the human male (notice I have stopped calling him “The Man”), has taken to saying I am a pig. I am using today’s TT to discuss thirteen reasons he is WRONG. At least I’ll try and keep it to 13. We all know he *is* wrong on everything.
1. I have sleek beige and chocolate fur that covers my body in a soft, smooth coat. Pigs have coarser little bristles and it’s unlikely to find them with the fine chocolate paws, tail and mask that I have.
2. I meow. Pigs Oink.
3. I weighed in a 7 pounds 6 ounces at my last check up. Pigs weigh slightly more than that. In fact, looking online, a healthy pig should weigh between 200 and 240 pounds.
4. As a cat, I am a true carnivore. Pigs are omnivores.
5. I have soft toes. Pigs have cloven hoofs. (like the human male)
6. I live indoors. Pigs live in drafty barns (can you imagine ME living in a barn?!)
7. I attack spiders and kill them. Pigs make friends with them and listen to them for advice.
8.It is recommended you clean your pig with a garden hose. I’d like to see someone try that with me! Of course, I keep myself tidy and such a thing isn’t necessary.
9. I have large, lovely almond shaped eyes. Pigs have beady little round eyes.
10. Pigs have poor eyesight. Cats have a keen sense of vision.
11. I do not have a snout.
12. A full grown strong pig could knock down a house if it choose to do so. How I wish!
13. I have claws.
An odd fact that I found which I do have in common with a pig is that they hate to be picked up. I’d like to have seen the human male do that. I hate to be picked up to but at my size, just about anyone can do it.

  1. Some cats do have to live in a barn….but, no, I can not see you doing that ! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I never would have known that a pig doesn’t like to be picked up, but of course I never have had a reason to know that either. Great list!

  2. This is such a great blog to read..!

  3. Hey, Cheysuli! Great list. Have pity on the human male; he’s probably just jealous of you! Thanks for stopping by my blog. About the chocolate, tell your human that I share – but I’ll probably eat all the Godiva. Happy TT!
    DK (Buddy’s human)

  4. I find your post amusing. Great post.
    Thanks for passing by.

  5. Lol !! That is really funny because I have the same story but seen from a woman who should better take a cat than a man !!

    Very good comparison and on the top cats eat elegantly a pig not !

  6. Yeah, the human male is sooo wrong! Calling divine beings like cats pigs, how dare he.
    Our human’s TT is about Halloween.

    Love, Freyja & Bastet

  7. I don’t think I’d put up with being called a pig!

    Happy TT!

  8. awesome list. it’s too cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I don’t think I’d take advice from a spider either.

  10. how funny!!! #7 made me laugh out loud. by the way.. my human thinks i look like Smiegel from Lord of the Rings after my bad haircut.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Hey Chey, although I do know of cats who live in barns I can honestly say that I can’t envision you living in one. But you definitely aren’t a pig. I’m sure the human male didn’t mean anything derogatory by it.

    Happy TT. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Having to side with you on this one Cheysuli. You are too beautiful to be a pig.

  13. You also don’t have a corkscrew tail.

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Happy TT.

    Eat something.

  14. You? In a barn? um, no.

    I am sorry that the human male called you a pig. You can tell him that quite often the phrase ‘men are pigs’ is used – and for a reason!

  15. You crack me up. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. That was a great and funny list of 13. And cats are cuddly!

    I’m up also.

  17. Right on, Chey! Perhaps he should be called “The Pig.” See how he likes it!

  18. Perhaps the man needs his eyesight checked? Clearly, you’re all feline.

  19. Ah — I love this post.
    Especially #5 (Not The Mama said, “hmpf” to this one, though)
    I will have to steal this idea — comparing me to something, for a future TT.
    My sixth TT is up now at

    Meow for now ~ Daphne

  20. Chey, you are not even close to pig-like!

    Silly man.

    Happy TT!

  21. You? In a barn? I think not!

    Hee at the hoof remark. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. Wonderful list! How dare the human man compare you to a pig!!

  23. No way you’re a pig! Pigs ares stinky and ugly, not like my beautiful Chey!

  24. I LOVED this list! You are such a funny cat! #5 made me literally LOL. Thanks for giving me my first chuckles of the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. I know pigs. I keep pigs. Oh yes, I know pigs. Nothing but a pig is a pig. Note, however, my use of the term on my post today. Yes, a pig *is* a pig.

  26. Chey, I do not blame you for demoting him to human male. Of all the nerve.

    It made for a good TT, though.

  27. I accidentally commented under Merlin’s username, Chey, sorry about that.

  28. It sounds like pigs are almost as weird as humans.

  29. Hahah! The pig make friends with spiders and listen to their advice this is so true!

    So go on attacking, cat! I hate spiders too. ๐Ÿ˜€

  30. Whut a grate list, Chey! Yoo forgot the curly tale part (I don’t THINK yer tale is curly.)

    Anyway, heer’s my link for TT:

  31. I loved #7!

  32. If #7 is true, then I need a cat. Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!

  33. Definitely not a pig. Although it’s a bit sad that you don’t like being picked up cos everyone loves to hug a kitty.

  34. Uh, maybe we should feel sorry for the guy? We think the fool probably needs glasses. Everyone knows you’re a CAT!

  35. Chey, I looked for an email for you, but didn’t find it. When I went to your main page (not the blog), it automatically uploaded a file to my computer that my virus protector identified as a virus. I am assuming this is not from you directly, but I thought you should know.

  36. Really new to this. My wife makes me do a TT and read those who read hers. ๐Ÿ™‚
