Maunzerl is a funny cat

With Lilly strolling through the neighbourhood during the night, Maunzerl is clearly the king or shall I say queen of the house. She has been very clingy and is most likely missing the action when Lilly is not around. With both her can openers gone for most of the day, she is sleeping the time away until we return. No Lilly to disturb, bother or chase her. At night she is all the more active and wants to be with us whenever she can. Despite feeding her and playing her tired, we heard her scratch in front of the bedroom door. A habit we successfully stopped with Lilly by placing oh so dreaded laundry baskets in front of the door. Maunzerl is not afraid of anything, hence we let her in, where she settled nicely on my duvet and cuddled up to the hubby. Well needless to say even with the room being so warm it did get a bit chilly in the wee hours of the morning, meaning I stole my duvet back, thereby waking the kitten and she went off like a rocket. All that energy bundled up and she wanted to eat, play and be petted all at once. Mind you, it was only 5am. Going back to bed was not an option unless all of the above was checked off Maunzerls list. She is still a very cute kitten. Tonight she will be less fortunate as we have reserved a quiet sleeping place for our beloved Lilly, should she decide to come in. The weather forecast predicts rain so we are sure to have a "guest appearance" by the one and only L-I-L-L-Y.

Ive never heard of the name Maunzerl before. May I know the meaning behind it? I find it cool!

The cat's name is actually Sheila but we call her Maunzerl. To "maunz" is to meow in German and Maunzerl is just a way to pronounce it in the Bavarian regional dialect. I know it is hard to pronounce for non-native speakers. We called her that because she "talks" a lot.
