Welcome to another great edition of Katdid Konversations!
I am your host, Kitty Mojito!
It is a cold and snowy Sunday here in the Canadian prairies and I am chatting with Harvey, a 2.5 year old kitty from Cleveland, Ohio!
KM: Thanks so much for joining me today, Harvey! Shall we start by talking about how you came to find your human?
H: My Mama fostered me when I came in as an injured kitten..3 weeks old…to the Cleveland Animal Protective League where she works.
KM: Can you describe a day in your life?
H: Most days, I’m playing with my brothers and sisters. We are all rescues. Mama saved us in one way or another. I have 9 ‘siblings’ ages 2 – 15. I love chasing my sister Grover the best. She’s fun. Occasionally, she hisses at me but most times she will chase me back. I love treats and before Mama goes to work and when she comes home, we all line up in the kitchen to get some. I was attacked by ‘something’ when I was a baby so I have half my left cheek missing. It makes for eating difficulties as food and water tend to fell out the hole in my face. But no matter what, Mama cleans it for me daily and even though I have ‘stink mouth’ as Mama calls it, she still loves me and makes sure I know it.
KM: What a wonderful Mama you have! It is so lucky that she found you all! What is your most favourite kind of food?
H: I love Fancy Feast wet food. We all get a small amount for breakfast every morning. Catnip Temptations are my FAV treat!!
KM: OOh I love those treats too!! But I can’t eat much of them now due to my sensitive tummy! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?
H: Hard decision because I love all toys….but I’d have to say I love catnip toys the best and the Yeowwww Catnip Bananas are Pawesome!!
KM: Yes! I call it an iBanana and use it to call my furriends! Do you have a specific sense of style?
H: Style? I just move on in and take over, mostly when someone else is on Mama’s lap!!! I just crawl on over and lay as close to her as I can. I am a talker so when I want Mama’s attention, I just loudly ‘Meowwwww’ and she calls me!
KM: That is definitely interesting. I was thinking more of personal style as in clothes but your personality style definitely gets attention for sure! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
H: I’ve never lived with doggies…but I love playing with my kitty family. When Mama brings home other kittens to foster, I like playing with them too. Although, at times, I think they get too much of Mama’s attention!
KM: It is nice that you are so kind to your foster kitty family! I am sure they could use lots of love! If you could make one wish, what would it be?
H: I wish I had a full cheek on the left side of my face. It makes for some dental issues without having a ‘normal’ kitty face..and I always have to have Mama clean the ‘gunk’ off my cheek. It would be better if I could eat like other kitties. But Mama says she loves me just the way I am…and if I hadn’t been brought in with the injury, Mama might not have been there to foster me! So I guess it all happened for a reason.
KM: Your positivity is very inspiring, Harvey! Everything DOES happen for a reason! And I think you are just perfect just the way you are! What do you do to relax and chill out?
H: Whenever Mama sits on the couch, I jump up on her lap! She is always so warm and I love cuddling up there with her.
KM: Do you have any special skills?
H: Yes, if you count eating and spitting it out all at the same time? LOL!
KM: I don’t see why that can’t be a skill!!! LOL! What do you value most in life?
H: My Mama. She takes such good care of me and my brothers and sisters. We are all very lucky kitties to be with her.
KM: She sounds like a fun gal! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?
H: I would have a nice quiet dinner of Fancy Feast Grilled Chicken, some nice ice cold fresh water with ice cubes and then go curl up with Grover on a nice comfy blanket by the Electric Fireplace.
KM: It has been so much fun chatting with you Harvey! I am so glad your mama found you and gave you a wonderful life!
