6 Unspectacular Quirks of Mine

I was tagged by Eric and Flynn
for the Six Unspectacular Quirks Meme in the beginning of August.

The Rules:

Link to the one who tagged you. List the rules on your blog. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours. Tag some blogger friends with links. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know that they have been tagged.

I've had a while to think about my quirks and here are six of them!
Maybe while I'm in here listing my quirks Willow will go into the red box top. This morning I think she gave me a look while I was sleeping in the red box top.
1. I like to be warm. Really warm. Daytime in the winter, I sleep in my heated cat cup
or at night in bed under the blankets with my Food Lady. She keeps me very warm, even on her lap. I also sleep on the back of the couch because there is a reading light that that is very warm on my face.
2. In the summer, I love to sleep in the sunshine. Even when it is over 100 degrees and humid. My Food Lady always makes sure I have cold water, sometimes with ice cubes in it too! When I have been out for a while, she makes me come in to cool off a bit and she calls me "Humidkitty".
3. When I drink water from the water bowl I always put my paw in it first. Then I dig on the floor in front of the bowl with both front paws. But I never lick the water off my paw - I just drink out of the bowl.
4. I like to lick Willow on the top of her head and sometimes I clean her ears for her.
5. I talk a lot. When anyone says, "China Cat" I always answer: mrrrrrrrrriiiip. My dad thinks that I chirp. I chitter at the birds outside my mom's office window. She put a bird feeder there so we can always chitter at lots of birds.
6. Whenever my dad goes to the front door, I run as fast as I can to the front door, chirping my mrrriiiip, mrrriiiip, mrrriiiip the whole time. Sometimes they laugh at my belly swinging back and forth as I run. But I don't mind because I know that when I get to the door, my dad will pick me up and just the two of us go out front and sit on the bench that is on the front porch.
Well, that's 6 quirks of mine and now I would like to tag Moe, who is a gorgeous ginger like me and his sister, Mindy, who has a lot of white fur like my sister, Willow!
