Luxor

Luxor, The Whitest of Boys, is a pure white, green-eyed Oriental Shorthair. He was born in Arizona but now lives in New Mexico with his Mom, Dad, real sister Silky, and adopted sister Ninna. This cat loves life! When he was a kitten he would wake up each morning with anticipation just shining in those big green eyes, and he hasn't changed very much since that time. He's pretty much fearless, with the exception of a few things. One of them is a peeled banana (this will send him racing for a hiding place) and the other thing is the clinky sounds made when a dishwasher is being emptied. If he isn't moved to another room, he begins to emit a tiny wail not unlike that of a miniature siren.Otherwise, he's a very friendly, outgoing, sociable boy, although he'd rather not receive too many kissies from his human Mommy. He's a Daddy's Boy! (But Mommy kisses him anyway.)

I've always been fascinated by Luxor's exotic looks! He's a very beautiful cat and he has amazing eyes. How old is he? It's cute that peeled banana's scare him, what a character! Did you get your name because you look like the Egyptian cat so common in paintings and replicated in statues?

Hello All!

My Luxor, what big ears you have! (In a good sorta way, of course)

Morning all!

Emma's Kat said...

Good morning! I so love Luxor and his handsome self and froot bat ears! You'll have to check out his site if you haven't already, and see his beautiful sisters! Kim, I think you might be right about his name! Lol, I have a computer video game called Luxor - Amun Rising and of course it's Egyptian.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi Lux, you are looking so good.

So photogenic. And isn't he WHITE!

Check out Lux's baby photo, even back then, at that young age, he already knew how to work that camera.

Rascal said...

Very handsome!

Catzee said...

Hi Luxor!

Ariel said...

So Handsome and beautiful green eyes.

Ella's Mom said...

Hi Luxor, what a handsome boy you are! Looks like you're putting on your innocent cute face just for the camera.

Merlin said...

Lux! Yay! Congratulations! You always look so nice in your pictures.

Elaine said...

Hi, all - this is Lux's Mom! He's feeling sort of shy over all the attention - NOT! :)

Anyway, I've always been fascinated by Egypt (and place names) and although the city Luxor used to be known as Thebes, I just like the way Luxor rolls off my tongue. Further, in Latin, "lux" means "light." And Lux is indeed a shining white light!

His sister Ninna is actually named Nineveh. The second name we gave to Silky is Lycia. It's becoming a tradition. Should we ever get another boy kitten, I've already got his name picked out: Karnak.

Thanks, Kat, and thanks to all of Lux's friends and "commenters!"

Chatty Cathy,

Elaine said...

Oh, and Luxor will be three on January 4th of 2007 (one day after Silky's birthday and four days before mine).

KC said...

o, sad news. Butterscotch went to ta Bridge this affer-noon.

jess said...

Luxor is a very handsome guy with gorgeous eyes and i love his ears too :) and what a purrsonality! i loved reading about him, and about his 'fears'... isn't it odd the things that can scare an otherwise fearless and friendly cat?! lol

Very handsome cat. What *is* it about banana peels (or bananas in general) that they don't like? I can understand oranges or other citrus but I don't quite understand what is so bothersome about bananas. I never noticed until I was eating one last night and my cat looked at me like I was eating poison. :-D

Kitty said...

Whoops, sorry -- didn't mean to pick "anonymous". Doh!

Emma's Kat said...

Just visited Butterscotch's site. So sad. At least he was in the arms of his mommie and is not sick anymore!

On a lighter note. KC - Benji and Marley got their names "pimped out"! Ok, so Marley's pimp name is Trick Magnet Marley Schmoove, and Benji's is Mack Master Benji Valentine! I love it! Emma refused to do it. She said she liked her name just the way it was. I tried to tell her it was all in good fun! Oh well, spoiled sport! She's not been feeling 100%, maybe that's why. She has had the sniffles and been sneezing some. I'm just gonna keep an eye on her because so far she's not got a fever. She's eating, drinking, playing, following me around, pretty much herself. Just has the achoos every once in awhile.

Thanks to all of you for saying such nice things!

I was very sorry to hear about Butterscotch, though.

Emma's Kat said...

Has anyone checked out Cute Overload today!! OMGosh! Cute alert for sure! And speaking of paw pads, as we were yesterday! Everyone must go and look! The second picture is why I so need a new camera!

Kim said...

OH NO! Oscar's pimp name is "Reverend Oscar Doctor Clinton!"

How will I ever explain this to my husband? We're Republicans! LOL!!!
ROTF! LMBO!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Hey Luxor! He's such a cutie. If you haven't seen his wonderful blog, you should check it out. There's a picture of him licking his daddy's nose that's the sweetest picture we've ever seen!

Oh dear, too much going on today!!

We are so sorry about Butterscotch, but he was in his Mommy's arms and he's not hurting anymore. Sounds good, anyway.

I love Lux, and his blog! Question-Does he get to participate in Froot-Bat Friday AND White Cat Wednesday, or do we frown upon double-dippers?!!?

I'm almost afraid to find out what our pimp names are, I'm kinda with Emma. Besides, my cats are not only Republicans, they are heathens as well!

BTW-- KAT--I love the new floating hearts on the slide box, too cute!

Anonymous said...

Heavens, my mom says about all she can handle is Froot Bat Friday! But we appreciate the thought ...

Emma's Kat said...

I forgot to tell everyone. Dante will be coming back here tomorrow for another few weeks. He has unfortunately done his 2nd 4 weeks at PetsMart. He will get a home soon though! If not while staying w/us, for sure when he goes back up! Keep purrayin' for his furrever home! I can't wait to see him. Last I saw him (a couple weeks ago actually), he had really grown! I will post pix asap!

Btw, did anyone see the new addition to the Slide box? I'll give you a hint. Her name means moon! Bet you can't guess that one! Lol!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Okay, question.

KC is asking what a pimp is, now that she has her pimp name. What should I tell her?

Your cats are gonna ask, too.

Those hearts are just wonderful. Kinda like we feel watching the tummies go by. Oh, there's Missy's tum covered with hearts. And there's KC's bright pink tummy. How sweet.

Emma's Kat said...

Well, ML. I don't know what to tell them either. Here is the Dictionary.com definition:

pimp  /pɪmp/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[pimp] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation

–noun 1. a person, esp. a man, who solicits customers for a prostitute or a brothel, usually in return for a share of the earnings; pander; procurer.
2. a despicable person.
3. Australia and New Zealand. an informer; stool pigeon.

6. to exploit.

[Origin: 1630–40; orig. uncert.]


I'm not sure we need to tell them. Maybe we should just tell them they'll learn when they get older and that we were just having fun coming up with cool names for them! I don't know!

Kim said...

Tell them a Pimp is someone who sets up "dates" for his "employees", how does that sound? I agree with Kat, they don't really need to know right now. LOL

Emma's Kat said...

That's great Kim! Purrfect! That's all they need to know for now! ;)

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Yeah, that's good. I'll tell her it's a "fun" name, cause it is, that's all it is, is fun. And it's someone who sets up things -- won't even use dates -- for employees. Thanks.
