When I was a very young kitten mum used to call me her Slinky Malinki after the rhyme by Lynley Dodd.
It went something like;
Slinky Malinki was blacker than black
A stalking and lurking adventurous cat
He had bright yellow eyes and a warbling wail
And a kink at the end of his very long tail
He was cheeky and cheerful
Friendly and Fun
He'd chase after leaves
And he'd roll in the sun
But at night he was wicked and fiendish and sly
Through the moonlight and shadows he'd prowl and he'd pry
What was he up to?
At night to be brief; Slinky Malinki turned into A THIEF!
Only lately mum has taken to calling me Chunky Malunki!!! I am not in anyway 'chunky' as it's clearly winter floof, that's my excuse and I am sticking to it.

P.S. Mum apologises for not visiting much over the last few days, but things where scarily busy. She hopes to catch up with you all soon.
