Wordless Wednesday – Up Close And Personal With Magellan

Magellan - Portrait

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Week

I’ve found that the way a person feels about cats –
And the way they feel about him or her in return –
Is usually an excellent gauge by which to measure a person’s character.

Photos Of The Week – Magellan

Up Close & Personal

Hello, friends – it’s Magellan!
This week, I thought it was time we got to know one another a little better.
I thought I’d share a few fun facts about me that you might not know –
And in return, I hope you’ll do the same!

I was born in upstate New York and am Tsunami’s half-brother,
Although separated in age by several years.
We are both the sons of Grand Champion T. Ruxpin of Shubacoons!

Much to my parent’s chagrin, I am a morning cat.
I like to wake my parents up at the crack of dawn
So that they can play with me and make me a breakfast of champions!
Tsunami is a morning cat too!
Unfortunately – my parents do not share our love of dawn.

I have never met a toy that I did not like!
I have also never met an item that I could not turn into a toy!
My parents do not always appreciate my ingenuity.
They particularly lack vision where electrical cords (snakes!) –
Window blinds (so much fun to dangle and do pull-ups on!) –
And anything that goes flying through the air when I do are concerned.

Magellan My Gentle Giant

I am a very active cat who experiences my world through touch.
I am one of those cats that has to touch everything and
Stick my nose in everything to get a sense of what is going on.
Sometimes, this leads to unexpected results!
For instance, the other day, Mom was baking and when she wasn’t looking,
I went up to the dish and stuck my nose right in a very strong spice.
Boy, was that a mistake!
It took forever to get that out of my very sensitive system!

I love my family and am very protective of them!
I guard my house and watch what’s happening in the neighborhood
To make sure no suspicious characters are around!
I cannot rest when people are out of the house and unaccounted for.
Of course, when I am resting –
I expect my people to watch over me and cover my back too!

I love snuggling up with my parents at every opportunity I can!
Sometimes, when my mom is on her back,
I like to snuggle so close to her that if she isn’t careful,
She ends up with a mouthful of fur!
She says she doesn’t mind, though, because she loves me that much!
My dad loves me too.
They say I’m pretty irresistible!

    “You got my best side mum”?… he is sooooo handsome! Great to hear a bit of Magellan’s story… An insight to my world appears on today’s WW post; what you may not know is that I was born in Scotland, travelled much, emigrated to Australia and was there 25 years; then spent two years in India and life’s wheel turned… I am back in Scotland! Da-daaaa… YAM xx

    It is so nice to learn more about you, Magellan! Thanks for hosting. I enjoy watching the squirrel & stray cat TV channel outside of my window. There is something about me. 🙂

    Magellan and Tsunami are wonder cats beyond their beautiful looks- so playful too! Our Linus is ready for action about 6:00 and although he is not too aggressive about our getting up, he gives subtle hints, like a fake purr, to get us up for the day. Actually it’s cute. A great boy Magellan is!

  15. I have never met a cat yet, that wasn’t a morning person. I am not, but hubby is. but who does our cats want to wake up??? ME!
    It was fun learning more about you Magellean <3

  16. Ruth - Utah says:

    Your lovely photos of your cat makes me miss my cat. He’s been gone about a year now. He was on this earth 18 years.

  17. I have take got two cats from the RSPCA last week – Benji and Mobi – you can see some posts about them on my blog, I am now a fellow cat devotee!! Thanks for linky!

  18. It’s so nice to read about Magellan and champagne. Snort.

    From Kuzco: I knew it was love at first sight when I saw Mary walk in the rescue room. I got so excited that I reached out through the cage doors to try and grab her. It worked! She understood me!

    She opened the door and I jumped onto her. As she held me in her arms, I purred and purred to let her know how much I loved her! I could tell she needed a special kitty. She couldn’t resist me. But then she set out to find another kitty that I would get along with. She picked Lady… a good choice.

    From Lady: I love people. And I cried out so much that I broke my meow. I ran out of voice and couldn’t get anyone’s attention. But when Mary came over to see Kuzco, I came to the edge of my cage and tried to meow. Almost nothing came out. But she did look at me.

    Once Mary put Kuzco away, she looked down at a little bob-tailed cat and picked him up. But when she held him up to Kuzco, they growled at each other. Mary put him back. I tried harder to get her attention. So I reached out to her through the cage. It worked!! She picked me up and I melted onto her. Love at first hold! I purred and purred for good measure.

    When she put me up to Kuzco and vice versa, we got along right away. We were hoping she would take us both home. Then, the magic words came. She said, “I’ll adopt them both!”

    We knew she needed us and have been thrilled to be in her life. We run up to greet her every time she comes home. We want her to know we love her. And she makes sure we know she loves us too!

    Life is good.

    Lady and Kuzco

    You’re kitty’s eyes are always so intense, and I’m sure he’s right on top of things. I guess he’s like your watch dog in a sense huh? 🙂 Have a wonderful day as always you’re the hostess with the mostess.

    Terrific video as usual. We are all pretty much an open book. Astrid and Lily Olivia take turns sitting in Mom’s lap when she is on the computer blocking both the screen and the keyboard. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  31. Janice says:

    Sounds like a playful cat! I’m not a cat person, but if I were, I think I’d like Magellan. Except maybe the waking up at dawn part! 😉

  32. Andi says:

    My cat talks so much and she has different voices. Also she has never ever liked any toy I have ever given her!
