Welcome to another wonderful edition of Katdid Konversations!
I am your host, Kitty Mojito
Today we take a trip to Santa Clarita, California to chat with Winter.
KM: Hi Winter! Thank you for joining me today! I am so thrilled to have you here. So let’s start by talking about how you found your humans.
W: On Black Friday, Momma always buys cat and dog food to take to the shelter. When she stopped by the cat area, I was in the same cage that 2 of her other kitties were adopted in. I was sick and the attendant said not to even bother as I was going to have to be euthanized in the next hour. Momma said, “Sorry he is coming home with me.” She paid $5 for tags and immediately took me to her cat doctor and they fixed me right up.
KM: Wow! I am so glad she was able to save you! Describe a day in your life.
W: I wake Momma with a toy. I like to drop them on her. Then it’s breakfast but I like to eat everyone’s food too so Momma has to pick me up and snuggle me while everyone eats (at least I get snuggled)! Then it’s hang time with my dog siblings. They like me a lot and they are old so I help them stay warm. Then I go find the hidden treats Momma leaves for me and watch birds from my window hammock. I usually nap like 20 times a day to keep my energy up for night time. After dinner, it’s crazy time with Momma. I usually help her go to sleep by sitting on her face.
KM: What do you REALLY think of your humans?
W: I love Momma. Momma is awesome. Papa and my human brother are cool. They feeds me and pets me, but Momma… oh Momma is just so awesome. She is my very favorite.
KM: That is so sweet! Mommas are just so wonderful aren’t they? Winter,what kind of food do you like?
W: I’m almost embarrassed to say this but dog food is really tasty! I also enjoy catnip Temptations. But the best thing is eggs! I love eating Momma’s eggs!
KM: Eggs? That’s interesting! I’ve never had them before! What are they like? Are they yummy? OK OK I got sidetracked there for a minute! What is your favourite toy?
W: I have ‘Red Bird’ from Birds of a sweater that I carry around and adore, and I also love the red dot. The red dot is amazing! Have you seen the red dot? The red dot is so sneaky fun!
KM: I love the red dot too!!!!! Now how would you describe your sense of style?
W: I’m dapper all the way! Give me a bow tie and I’m all set.
KM: You sure look great in those bowties! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
W: I have 2 wiener dogs and a chihuahua in my life and I love them. I helped bring 14 year old Boomer back from almost dying (part of the reason Momma brought me home was to help with the loss of a dear pup that went to heaven). Boomer loves kitties and I helped love him out of his sadness. I even hang out with my Doberman niece once in a while. Birds though… I want to touch them…. They tease me at the windows.
KM: Oh my goodness! That is so wonderful. You are a real hero! What do you do when you get bored ?
W: We don’t get bored too much. Momma treats the house like a zoo and introduces new stuff and takes away old stuff all the time. We have a bird feeder that moves from window to window and we all love to find the treats she hides.
KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?
W: All the humans would be responsible about their pets so shelters wouldn’t have to exist.
KM: That is a very honourable wish my friend! Do you have any special skills?
W: I am an expert Momma tracker. I also pose for pictures. All Momma has to do is ask me to sit pretty.
KM: What things are most important to you now?
KM: How do you feel about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?
W: I think the humans should do a better job or us animals should be represented.
KM: Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?
W: I love seeing beautiful animals. Some are super funny and all are super supportive and sweet. Momma and I have made some ameowzing friends that we cherish. What we don’t like… people who are cruel to animals and say mean things about animals.
KM: Winter, I think I know the answer to this question but I will ask you anyway 🙂 Do you have a special someone in your life?
W: I have a girlfriend. Sweet Prim. She is a pure breed that is very sweet and kind.
KM: Prim is a very lucky girl! What is your dream date?
W: I would love to bird watch after a dinner of eggs. Then of course snuggle and bathe each other.
KM: What would you like to accomplish in the near future?
W: I’d like to help raise awareness about some of the ameowzing fosters we know on IG. And Momma thinks I should be a meowdel.
KM: I think you will make a wonderful meowdel! Do you have anything else you would like to say?
W: I love Momma!
KM: Oh Winter, you are just so cute! Thank you so much for chatting with me! I hope you had as much fun as I did!
