Probably true

You Are: 60% Dog, 40% Cat

You are a nice blend of cat and dog.
You're playful but not too needy. And you're friendly but careful.
And while you have your moody moments, you're too happy to stay upset for long.

I saw this quiz at the blogs of Scout the Wonder Dog (she's gorgeous, no?), and Grendel my gravy-loving buddy.

Of course, as far as totems go, I am really not a dog or a cat but a bear. I wish I were hibernating right now.

I test 60% cat, 40% dog, but I'm really an otter in a bear suit ...
and I think you're absolutely fabulous!

Diane said...

hey, thanks! Scout woofs, but can't leave comments on blogger very well.

50%, 50%, but I prefer wolf to bear.

FranIAm said...

Now that is just lovely- playful but not too needy. Even if you were still a little needy, that's ok by me.

You doggy-cat-bear!

You're either a bat or a cog.

Woofs back to Scout.

I am very fond of wolves but I identify as bear. Some of this may be the abiding love I have for the family dog that was malamute-samoyed mix. My ex sees him as the clear model for a wolf that plays a critical role in my fantasy novel.

Fran, please remember Bush's warning about "human-animal hybrids" in an earlier SOTU. Now you will have the NSA hunting me down. (I wonder how much time they waste monitoring my rants against the little shit.)

Paul said...

Mickey, now I am worried about hybrids.

Diane said...

You wish you were hibernating??? What if you lived here?
(It has warmed up a little.)
but I wish I were hibernating.

Diane, I thought it was a sufficiently giant leap to move from coastal California to Albuquerque where it does get down to freezing and we sometimes have a dusting of dry snow. This much I can handle, but this is where I draw the line. I am a sun-lover raised in a Mediterranean climate. This is why I a say I have a Latin soul in a Swedish body. You hardy types can keep the Midwest. If I were there I would disappear in late fall and not emerge until the daffodils bloom.

Heh ... Paul, we live in Cincinnati, the weather had become so wonky here that we have an aster magnolia budding in the backyard, iris already sprouting, forsythia blooming, and ice in the street.


P.S. if you need to confirm my identity

Paul said...

Raven~, it sounds gorgeous. Right now all I have are buds swelling on the trees and shrubs. Sun breaking through at this very moment though just a little while ago we had about two minutes of snow.

I love magnolias in bloom. I think my fave is the magnolia stellata.

Been a while since my exterior self was more otter than bear.

"Been a while since my exterior self was more otter than bear."

Hee hee ... Oh Lordy, yes!
I (too) have burgeoned into full Bearly amplitude, but the inner otter is still playful!

I love Magnolia stellata ... our magnolia tree was a house warming present. It's only 10 years old, and already over 25 feet tall.

Paul, it makes me all teary eyed and stuff to hear you talk about Albuquerque, and about California. I lived in Claremont (Claremont Colleges) 14 years before moving to Cincinnati in 1978. Before Claremont the family were in Twentynine Palms, Santa Ana, Barstow, and San Francisco. I attended Argonne Elementary school, and Presidio Jr. High. Yes, as you might guess, my dad was a career Marine.

Your knowledge of Eastern Orthodoxy intrigues me. Would you care to share that story someday? (and do you know Robert Lentz?)

If you'd care to move this "gettin' to know you" conversation to email, you can use the addy I gave in prior post

Paul, I got the very same % as you! Quelle surprise. ;-)
