A Meditative Monochrome Moment!


Some of you had the temerity to laugh at the fact that one of my nicknames is Poopy!! The person who gave me that name was summoned to appear before the magistrate and interrogated as to the reason why this came about! 

Under rather exhaustive cross examination the following statement was forthcoming from the accused: It is poo as in puddy with the affectionate ...pee (contracted to py) suffix as a term of endearment! So it's nothing to do with  ..... err ..... you know ..... doodoo or peepee! 

In fact I am given to understand that it is the shortened form of nincompoop. See below for definition.

We are joining Kitties Blue who are hosting the Sunday Selfie blog hop :)

nincompoop - a literate and erudite person or cat
erudite - a kind of glue or someone who adheres to rudeness

  4. Oh that's okay, Austin. You should hear some of the nicknames the mom has for us! On second thought, nope...we don't want those made public! Nice selfie, by the way. :)

  5. I think she weaseled her way out of trouble,, there, with the magistrate. Whatever she says, I do not think you ought to accept a name that is a short form of nincompoop.
    Mahvelous selfie!

  6. It sounds like a coverup to us Austin! We all know what nincompoop truly means! So to those within ear shot, it sounds as though she is calling you sh** or idiot! We think the cross examination needs to be further pursued! ;p

  8. I am glad she explained why she calls you Poopy, but I don't think I would want to be referred to as a nincompoop either. She is not off the hook yet.

  9. I agree with Flynn and what but about Winnie The Poo? Maybe there is something missing in the American vernacular? Anyhoo, you look like a proper gentleman cat today.

  16. Great photo. I heard there’s a new French parfum called Pupí that is pronounced like Poopy and smells like poos. I may not have the accents right on the spelling as I am not myself French.

  17. Hmmm...do we dare trust her? Well, it is a nice nickname the way she explained it if she's telling the truth. Nevertheless, you did a great selfie!

    That's the nicest definition of nincompoop we've ever heard!

  18. Poopy sounds a lot better now that you've explained it!

  21. I think we bought that explaination pal,

  22. Sweet, handsome Austin you have Mumsy laughing out loud. She has been called a nincompoop...tee, hee. Your definition fits her well because she is rude to me and moves me off the counter and table a lot when I am trying to get her attention and put my tail in her face...that is not rude for me to do that so she is the nincompoop, not me right? Hugs and nose kisses Pooh

  23. First we must say that we think your B&W selfie shows off your handsomeness. As always you gave us a good chuckle with your definitions. We think your typist's explanation of poopy was a bit convoluted. Our Mom has no such explanation for Turd Bucket for Mau, except that he is a pain in the backside. Thanks for being part of our blog hop. We really appreciate it so much. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  25. Dude, I had to do a double take when I saw your selfie! I thought it was me!! --Sampson
    P.S. We aren't sure if we are buying the whole poopy thing, Austin. Not sure if you should either! Perhaps NUCAT should get involved here...

  26. Mom gets annoyed with dad whenever he uses "potty" terms of endearment. I'm glad your poopy nickname is one derived from good natured affection.

  27. Beautiful selfie!

  28. Nice monochrome moment Austin......as for your explanation of the "Poopy" moniker, I'm not so sure that would make me feel better to know that it was purrrrhaps short for nincompoop. Although THAT is preferable to the doodoo/peepee reference. I'm thinking that you might not HEAR that particular term of endearment as much as you did before now that your human has been called to answer for that one.........know what I mean?

    Hugs, Sammy

    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
