Good morning pawsies!
Welcome to Katdid Konversations with your host, Me! Kitty Mojito!
Today I am talking to a fabulous foursome… Some hunky gentlecats!
Please say hello to Joey (8), Tux (3), Marvin (4) and Bob (1) from Denver, Colorado!
KM: Thanks so much for joining me today guys! I would like to know a bit about the history of each of you. How did you all come to find your humans?
Joey: I was in this horrible shelter. I had been given up twice. When I saw my future meowmy walk by my cage, I flipped over on to my back and rolled around. Meowmy and dad fell in love with me and felt so bad because someone had declawed me in all 4 paws!
Tux: Meowmy and dad wanted to get a little baby sibling for Joey to take care of so they came over to the house where I was being fostered. They loved my tuxedo fur! When meowmy picked me up and held me like a baby, I gave her an immediate kiss on the lips. They also saw me hanging around all my brothers and sisters and I was so selfish with the wet food I would bash them all on their heads with my paw so I could have all the food to myself. They had to have me!
Marvin: I had been living on the streets and I was extremely malnourished and stressed with all my fur falling out. I only weighed 7 pounds and was 2 years old. Meowmy saw a picture of me on a shelter website and told dad to go to the shelter and look at me and a bunch of other cats. When dad met me he realized I was such a sick and poor boy and felt like I really needed a good home. When he brought me home and meowmy saw me for the first time she started crying because of how sad I was. I feel much better now. I weigh about 12 pounds and my fur grew in so thick that meowmy and dad have to give me lion cuts to keep it under control.
Bob: Meowmy got kitten fever one night. Dad had already put his foot down and said NO MORE CATS. Meowmy begged and pleaded and even started crying from the thought of so many cats needing homes. Dad finally gave in! they drove all over town looking for the kitten of their dreams. They found me at Petco and dad picked me out because I had the cutest little tummy that looked like a gray leopard pattern. They took me home to be with my new brothers and I am so happy!
KM: Those are some amazing stories guys! You are all so lucky to have found your pawrents! Describe a day in your life.
Joey: Dad usually gets up early for work and feeds us, but if it is the weekend and he is sleeping in, I (Joey) like to walk all over mom with my toothpick legs and meow until she gets up and feeds us. While meowmy and dad are at work, we sleep and cuddle all day. Then, when they come home, we meow for food.When meowmy and dad are home, I like to sit on their laps and I also like to be held like a teddy bear when they are in bed at night. My brother Tux loves to roll around on the floor and play with catnip toys and shoes. He also like to claw the stairs, which dad hates. Then, at night, Tux likes to snuggle up behind meowmy’s head. My brother Marvin is a very chirpy boy. He walks around the house meowing all the time, and also gets very excited for fresh water. He also likes playing with Tux a little too much. He will chase Tux around until Tux begs him to stop. Bob is the baby of the house so he is always doing baby things. He loves snuggling his brothers and loves it when meowmy holds him like a baby and gives him kisses on the lips.
KM: That is just too cute! You guys must have lots of fun times at home! Now what do you REALLY think of your human?
Joey: We love meowmy so much! She is very weird though and gets crazy-obsessed with us. She is constantly talking to us in a really high pitched voice and gives us constant hugs and kisses. Dad is pretty cool too, but I must say that me (Joey), Tux, and Bob are all mama’s boys to the core. Marvin is kind of a daddy’s boy though. We think it is because dad took him out of that horrible shelter.
KM: That is very sweet. There is nothing wrong with being a mama’s boy or a daddy’s boy. I’m sure they love you all the same 🙂 What is your most favourite kind of food?
Joey: I LOVE carbs. If there is bread around, I would pick that above anything else. I especially love donuts and goldfish. The other boys love fancy feast the most.
KM: If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?
Joey: I would definitely have to go with good ol’ string! You can’t beat classic string.
Tux: Those little mice that come in white, black, and gray. I love carrying them around everywhere and putting them inside shoes and meowmy’s purse.
Marvin: I really like to bite the legs of tables and chairs.
Bob: The laser light!
KM: All really good options! Marvin, you have …umm… strange.. taste in toys LOL! How would you describe your sense of style?
Joey: Debonair and aloof
Tux: I like to wear my cute tuxedo all the time. It makes me feel fancy!
Marvin: I am a mangy cat turned handsome beast!
Bob: I like to think I have tough guy style but all my brothers say I’m just a little baby.
KM: I must say you all look really dashing. I bet all the lady cats reading this interview will be swooning over you all! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
We are all a little scared of dogs, except for Tux. He wants to be friends with everyone. We haven’t ever hung out with any other animals but we like to scare the birds away that come to our bird feeder.
KM: High five Tux! I like to be friends with dogs too!! If you all could make one wish, what would it be?
All of us can agree that we would wish that every cat in the whole world could have as loving a home as we have. It makes us very sad that there are lots of homeless and mistreated cats out there.
KM: Oh definitely! One day maybe that wish can come true. All humans must adopt, NOT SHOP! Do you have any special skills?
We are all pretty good at getting to the window within 1 second if a bird shows up to the bird feeder. Also, making humans fall in love with us and do whatever we say. We can make meowmy stop whatever she is doing, no matter how important, to give us pets and hugs.
KM: That is an amazing skill! It’s almost magic! What do you all value most in life?
Family! We love that we can be surrounded by brothers to snuggle and play with and have a meowmy and dad who are both crazy about us.
KM: That is so true guys! There is nothing better than being around the people that love you the most! Ok, let’s switch gears! Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?
We would certainly like the world to be a kinder place, but we are tired of politics! If only everyone could just be happy.
KM: Well, not sure if that will happen in our lifetime! On a happier note, Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?
We love Instagram! Meowmy watches our Instagram account for us and posts pictures of us. We love it when we can make other cat friends. We especially love when our new cats friends give our photos hearts and comments. There is one thing that we don’t like though; we can’t stand it when some of those cats follow and then unfollow. We are on Instagram to have real cat friends!
KM: That does get frustrating for sure. I personally don’t pay much attention to that! Ok let’s talk about love. Do you guys have any special someone in your life?
All of us boys are single and ready to mingle. Marvin has a huge crush on our cat friend Snowbell on Instagram.
KM: Hear that, Snowbell! Marvin wants to as you out!! (Hope she sees this!) If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?
Joey: It would start off with some donuts and cake. Then my date would let me lick her head and we would cuddle up for the night.
Tux: We would share a can of cat food and my date would let me rub my head against hers. This is how I show another cat I care for them.
Marvin: My date would let me chase her around and once we were both too tired to play anymore, we would snuggle up.
Bob: Pure snuggles!!!
KM: Oh boy! That sounds heavenly! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?
If only we could catch one of those birds we keep seeing out the window. We really think that would complete our lives!
KM: I feel the same! I have never caught a bird before. I don’t think Mama will let me hurt one though! Do you have anything else you would like to say?
We hope to make many more lasting furriendships with other cats. We also looooooooove to be told what handsome boys we are, so bring on the compliments!
KM: Guys, this has been fabulous! I had some much fun chatting with you. You are all so fabulous in your own unique way! Thank you so much for being a part of this!
