Katdid Konversation With Olivia

We have a wonderful guest here at Katdid Konversations today!

Say hello to a sweet and beautiful kitty from La Jolla California.. This is Olivia!

KM: It is so lovely to have you here with me, Olivia! We have become great friends so I am so excited to find out more about you! Can you tell me how you came to find your human?

O: My Meowmy came into the shelter one day after my dearly departed brother, Tyler passed over the 🌈  rainbow bridge. I was hiding in the back of my cage, on the top row of cages and as soon as Meowmy and I locked eyes, I crept Furward and she opened the cage and picked me up and I felt love and security that I had never felt beFUR.

KM: That is so wonderful! Describe a day in your life.

O: I sleep in Meowmy’s bed all night. We wake up and I get breakfast. Next, I walk around my home, looking for sun spots and then I take a nap. The rest of my day is spent resting and waiting for Meowmy to return. I look at the birds and hummingbirds outside. I also work  with my Pawtner Nugget at the Meow Matchmaking Service! We started this company together and are very proud to match kitties looking for l♥️ve with each other! We even made the cover of Forbes magazine! Please see our prior posts on Instagram! When Meowmy comes home, I must sit on her lap for awhile because I’ve missed her so much and I still suffer from abandonment issues. I get my dinner and play with Meowmy before bed.

KM: Sounds like you have your routine down to a T! What is your most favourite kind of food?

O: I’ve gotten very picky lately, so I’ll have to get back to you on that!

KM: Fair enough! I am fairly picky myself so I hear ya, sister! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

O: I do love my catnip toys that my friends in Europe sent me! I think they have special catnip there! 

KM: Hmm, they must! I got a gift from Germany and I love that toy so much! Do you have a specific sense of style?

O: As Coco Chanel said, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. Therefore, I believe in keeping my fur coat soft and conditioned and my only accessory is a collar with a jewel hanging from it. To date, I have 14 collars that I wear. I have my own jewelry box for them. They are insured by Lloyd’s of London.

KM: Oh you are such a stylish girl. You look beautiful in everything you wear! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

O: I absolutely love and treasure all of my Instagram furry friends, however in real life, I am not a fan. My time in the shelter scared me and it was so noisy! I never had any privacy. Besides we all know that dogs drool and cats RULE!

KM: Haha! Truer words were never spoken! If you could make one wish, what would it be?

O: I wish that all creatures were as lucky and blessed as I am.

KM: So Liv, when you are not running a business and being a style icon, what do you do to relax and chill out?

O: I get massages from Meowmy. I love being groomed and brushed. I also love cuddling with my BF Usko in front of the fireplace and watching Catflix.

Screenshot_20180127-193629

KM: Yes, Catflix has some great programs for sure. Do you have any special skills?

O: Werking the 📷?

KM: Well, you are doing a great job! What do you value most in life?

O: ♥️ ….. Love is all you need!

KM: What is your opinion about social media?

O: I love that my Meowmy and I have made furry friends from all over the world! We are blessed to know that there are so many kind, beautiful 2 and 4 legged friends out there.

 20180127_193733

KM: Do you have a special someone in your life? 

O: My Usko (@usko_the_cat on Instagram). He is the most wonderful BF ever! He is handsome, kind, loving and intelligent! He is my everything and my Furrever Valentine.

KM: You two are just so adorable and make the purrfect couple! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

O: I enjoy just spending time with my Usko. We like to watch meowvies in front of the fireplace and sip 🐟🍸 (tunatinis) while snacking on 🍱 (sushi). We believe that time spent with loved ones is the meowst important thing.

Screenshot_20180127-193638

KM: What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

O: I have already written my memoir and am now working on a story about the l♥️ve my Usko and I have for each other.  My Usko is so talented with his paws and is illustrating our book.

KM: That is so exciting! I can’t wait to read it! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

O: I would like to thank you for your furry friendship! You are a beautiful, furry friend on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside where it really matters. I believe that humans could learn a lot about how to treat each other from the way we interact on Instagram!  Us kitties are always supportive of one another, we celebrate our successes and share in our sadness. We invite everyone to our pawties and remember one another’s birthdays and Adoptoversaries.  Also, Adopt Don’t Shop! Let L♥️VE Rule! 

KM: You are too sweet my furriend! Thank you for the kind words! I wish you the best in all your fabulous endevours!! Kitty kisses to you!! Thanks for the chat!

Katdid Konversation With Harvey

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!

 

IMG_1037

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.

IMG_6296

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. 

IMG_2629
KM: Most definitely! She sounds like a lovely mama! What is your opinion about social media?

H: I love watching and keeping track of all the kitties around the world. It’s fun and I get to know how others live and meet lots of nice humans and their kitties.

KM: Very true! There are so many kitty friends out there! Do you have a special someone in your life? If so, please tell us a bit about them.

H: Of course…My Mama..silly! But if you mean other kitties, Yes!  Grover is the one I love the most. She is a bit younger than me and is a Selkirk Rex/Scottish Fold. She has a lot of curly black fur. When we play, I love chasing her and when I catch her, I nibble on her curly fur on her neck!! Mama says she doesn’t like it but she doesn’t run and always continues to chase me back.

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: Ooh! That sounds so cozy and romantic! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

H: I’d love to meet other kitties from around the world. I love rescue stories of others that have been saved by nice humans.

KM: Do you have anything else you would like to say?

H: I feel honored that you asked to interview me. I love my life with Mama although it does have a few complications. I’m so happy you love kitties too because that’s how Mama met you. She likes being on that Instagram and Facebook thing, meeting new people and showing pics of us. I think she is going to start her own page with just US on it!  I like that idea! I think we are all Purrfect!!

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!

Katdid Konversation With Oliver

Today we are chatting with a handsome and dashing kitty from Bronx, New York. Please say hello to 3 year old Oliver!

20171103_111217

KM: Thanks so much for joining me today, Oliver! It is so exciting to chat with you today. Shall we start by talking about how you found your human?

O: My human sister came across my siblings and I in a lot. I was cradling my sibling that had passed when she was finally able to get in and pick me up.

KM: Wow, what a way to be found! Describe a day in your life.

O: My day starts with breakfast, followed by some baby talk and cuddling. In the afternoon, I get in a good play time for about 15 minutes, then it’s lunch time followed by a nap. At 5pm-ish, I’m looking for my kibbles and a dog to chase. Then repeat for the rest of the night..(true story)!!

KM: Sounds like a pretty exciting day! What is your most favourite kind of food?

O: Chicken!!!!

20170831_163953

KM: Haha! I love chicken too!! And tuna and salmon and shrimp……..! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

O: It would have to be one of my toys on a stick. I love the play time with Meowmy and the stick toy.

KM: Oliver, you are known to wear some super stylish outfits. Do you have a specific sense of style?

O: Yes! I love dressing up with bows and ties.

KM: Fantastic! You sure look very dapper in them! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

O: I grew up with dogs. They are fun to have chase you and then jump where they can’t and just taunt them 😹Other animals, I’m not too thrilled, unless its a fish.

KM: I had some fish once. I would watch them for hours and tried to reach into the tank on more than one occasion! LOL! If you could make one wish, what would it be?

O: For every homeless cat to have a warm place to call their own with a human to love them as much as I am loved.

20170709_151106(2)

KM: That is so beautiful! I wish the same! What do you do to relax and chill out, Oliver?

O: I enjoy bird watching!

KM: Ooh that sounds like fun! Do you have any special skills?

O: I am trained to sit, stand on my hind legs and give meowmy my head when she asks for a kiss.

KM: Wow! So talented! What do you value most in life?

O: Besides that bank card I use to buy my treats, I’d say love. Love is misused, and when it’s real, it has to be valued. So I value the love I get every day.

20171031_125807

KM: That is so true! What is your opinion about social media?

O: It’s fun. I’ve made some really awesome furry friends.

KM: Do you have a special someone in your life? If so, please tell us a bit about them.

O: Don’t tell anyone, but my mom is my special someone. I have a girlfriend on IG but I flirt way too much to mention names 😹😹

KM: SHHHH! Your secret is safe with me! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

O: I’d take meow lady to an all you can eat tuna bar with an open meowgarita bar. Then we will head out under the clear sky so we can bird watch as we sit on the grass, full from all the tuna.

20171221_113045

KM: That is certainly tempting! I can already hear the ladies lining up to meet you!!! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

O: I would love to bring awareness to rescued cats. There is a bad misconception of what a “rescued” cat is capable of..as far as loving, compassion etc. Oh and I’d like to take over the world..lol

KM: Rescue cats are the greatest! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

O: Yes, thank you for the interview. Do I get treats now?

KM: You are most welcome! It was my pleasure! (hands over a giant bag of chicken treats!!)

Katdid Konversation With Finn And Ellaria

Welcome back to Katdid Konversations!! 

It’s a brand new year and we have some wonderful interviews lined up for you!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

We are starting off the 2018 line up with a wonderful couple from California!!

Please say hello to the most adorable QuiGon Finn (1 year and 5 months)  and Ellaria Zafrina Rey (9 months)!

 

lando6

KM: I am so excited to chat with you guys today! Let’s start by finding out how you came to find your human.

F: MY HUMON FOUND ME ON INSTAGRAM. THEY WERE GOING THROUGH THEIR FEED AND SAW A VIDEO ON @KITTEN.SMITTEN.RESCUE WHERE I WAS STANDING ON MY BED, IN MY CRATE SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS.

MY BROFUR LANDO SOLO HEARD ME AND CAME RUNNING FROM WHEREVER HE WAS CAUSING TROUBLE AND JUMPED ON THE HUMON’S LAP AND STARTED PAWING AT THE IPAD. LANDO WAS JUST A YEAR OLD AND LONELY BECAUSE THE OTHER CATS WOULDN’T PLAY OR INTERACT WITH HIM. LANDO WAS ALSO STARTING TO BECOME MORE PUG THAN CAT BECAUSE PAPA PUG WAS THE ONLY COMPANION HE HAD. SO THE HUMON LEFT A COMMENT ON KITTEN.SMITTEN’S PAGE ASKING IF ANYONE HAD PUT IN AN APPLICATION. THE HUMON DID NOT EXPECT A RAPID REPLY BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY GOT. SHE TOLD MY HUMON THAT NO ONE HAD PUT IN A APPLICATION YET AND WHERE TO GO TO APPLY.

THE HUMON DID NOT HESITATE AND GOT THE APPLICATION IN RAPIDLY, THEN WAITED TO HEAR BACK FROM THEM. WHEN MY FOSTER MOTHER @KITTEN.SMITTEN POSTED THAT I WAS GOING BACK TO THE SHELTER TO BE FIXED AND THEN TO MY FOREVER HOME, THE HUMON WAS HAPPY BUT THOUGHT SOMEONE ELSE WAS APPROVED INSTEAD OF THEM.

lando1

The photo that caught the Humon’s attention about adopting FINN

A FEW MINUTES AFTER THE POST, THEY GOT A CALL FROM THE SHELTER SAYING THAT THEY HAD BEEN APPROVED TO ADOPT ME AND THEY COULD COME PICK ME UP THE NEXT DAY. THE HUMON DROVE OVER THREE HOURS FROM FRESNO, CA TO SANTA BARBARA, CA TO COME AND GET ME. I WAS MADLY IN LOVE INSTANTLY AND SO WAS THE HUMON. ON THE CAR RIDE BACK, I SLEPT ON THEIR LAP AND PURRED MOST OF THE WAY.

WHEN WE GOT BACK TO THE HOUSE, THE HUMON HAD PLANNED TO SLOWLY INTRODUCE ME TO THE PRIDE BUT I HAD OTHER PLANS. I RAN STRAIGHT UP TO MY BROFUR LANDO AND PAPA PUG. THEY BOTH INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH ME AND ACCEPTED ME RIGHT AWAY. MASTER BUBBA CERSEI SKYWALKER WAS NOT SURE OF ME FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS. THEN SHE DECIDED THAT I WOULD BE HER APPRENTICE NOT LANDO’S. SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO BE A STRONG AND INDEPENDENT CAT AND IN TURN, I TAUGHT MY BROTHER HOW TO BE A CAT INSTEAD OF A PUG. NOW I AM THE ONE WHO TEACHES THE FOSTER KITTENS HOW TO BE CATS.

Ellaria: I was a feral foster kitten that turned into a foster fail. The Humon got a call from a fellow rescuer one day on their way back from the shelter. Their friend had four feral kittens that they couldn’t even handle and knew that the Humon was already working with another group of feral kittens.

The Humon wasn’t sure at first if they could handle four more kittens but after their friend pleaded with them, the Humon decided to go ahead and take us. What the Humon didn’t know was that the house had been contaminated with the Panluke Virus. When we first arrived, we were very feral and the Vet said she wasn’t sure we could be converted to friendly. The Humon worked with us everyday little by little to gain our trust. It didn’t seem to be working. Then the first kitten from the other group of fosters got sick. Within a week, we were all infected with the virus and we required around the clock care and maintenance. This meant that we had to be handled regardless of how we felt about it and we definitely didn’t like it.

After a few weeks and the death of my twin sister Obara, I started to relax around the Humon and would constantly beg to be with one of the kittens from the other group who is named Ash Wren. She would beg just like me to be together. Finally, the Humon realized that four of us were so much healthier than the others and decided to put us healthy ones together and the sick ones together.

That’s when Ash Wren moved into mine and my brother Gendry’s crate and our brother Ramsay moved into Ash’s group. Ash likes the Humon a lot and was always asking to be held and play with the Humon and the big kitties. Finally, one day the Humon decided to try letting me out to play with Ash and Papa Pug. I love Papa Pug and would follow him around and let him clean me. One day, Finn got into our playpen and it was love at first sight. He was so handsome and strong and he instantly fell head over heels in love with me and I with him.

The Humon wasn’t planning on keeping me and they were already talking to people who were interested in adopting me. When the Humon saw how much I love Finn and how much he loves me, they knew that they could never separate us. We have been inseparable ever since. We are star crossed lovers who are meant to be together forever.

lando2

KM: Wow, what an amazing story! I am so happy that you both found each other! Describe a day in your life.

FINN: SLEEP, EAT, HUNT, GROOM MYSELF AND ELLARIA, REPEAT.

Ellaria: Snuggle with Finn, practice lots of Meowga, play with my SisFur Ash Wren, get in lap time with the Humon, then lots more snuggling with Finn.

KM: Sounds heavenly! What is your most favourite kind of food?

Both: Homemade Wet Cat Food, Temptation treats, and Traders Joe’s cat tuna.

KM:Ooh homemade wet food sounds interesting!! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be? 

Finn: A dead mouse

Ellaria: My SisFur Ash Wren

KM:Haha! You guys are so funny!! Do you have a specific sense of style? 

Finn: Other than a harness, the only bandanas I wear are from Crazy Cat Lady Corner!

Ellaria: Same

KM:Mama and I are so happy to hear that you love our bandanas!! You all look so great in them! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

Both: We love them especially Pugs.

 

lando3

Ellaria’s first picture

KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?

Both: It would be that the Humon can raise enough money to start their Sanctuary so that other kittens and cats can know what it’s like to be safe and loved.

KM: That is a wish we all have for your humon! I hope it comes true very soon! What do you do to relax and chill out? 

Both: Snuggle with each other, Papa Pug or the Humon.

lando4

KM: Do you have any special skills?

Finn: I’m an expert mouser

Ellaria: Starting in February I will be teaching a Meowga class at @bensonandbitsy studio called #lapmeowga.

KM: Fantastic! I don’t do a lot of meowga but I will definitely check out your class! What do you value most in life?

Both: Each other, our siblings,Papa Pug and the Humon

KM: What is your opinion about social media?

Finn: IT’S A GREAT PLACE TO SHOWCASE MY CHEEKY MONKEY BEHAVIOR.

Ellaria: Without social media, I wouldn’t be here with my Pride and I wouldn’t have a place to teach Meowga.

lando7

KM: And we wouldn’t have been furriends if we didn’t have social media!! Well, I already know the answer to the next question but I will ask it anyway. Tell us about your relationship!

Both: We are soulmates and you just have to check out our Instagram account @BS13INC to see everything about our relationship.

KM: If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

Both: Just being together is purrfect.

KM: Aww you lovebirds are so cute. How romantic is that! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

FINN: PURRFECT MY HUNTING SKILLS

Ellaria: Teach my first Meowga class.

lando5

KM: I wish you the best! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

Both: Adopt don’t shop and love can change your world if you let it.

KM: That is an amazing and very important message that we should all share with the world! Thanks so much for joining me today guys! It was such a pleasure chatting with you both!

Note from Humom: I always hear Finn’s voice as having a proper British accent and he always speaks in all caps. Ellaria is definitely more reserved and rather shy with a Valley girl accent.

Katdid Konversation With Cobalt

Welcome to another great edition of Katdid Konversation!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

Today, my guest is a good buddy from North Carolina! Please say hello to Cobalt, a very spunky and hip 4 year old Siamese kitty!

 

13719723_308480619486544_4613791075472065704_o

 

KM: Welcome to the show Cobalt! I am so excited to chat with you today! Shall we start by learning a bit about your history? How did you come to find your human?

C: I came to find my human through Siamese Rescue. My human had lost her Siamese kitty named Henry and was looking for a pair of kitties. She saw me and my brother on the Siamese rescue website and automatically knew it was meant to be. I, at the time, had a pretty bad leg infection known as “Septic Elbow”. Nobody wanted to adopt me because of my bad leg. But my human knew we were the perfect kitties and even travelled 6 hours with a family member who is allergic to cats to check and see.

KM: That is so nice of your human to come so far to get you! Describe a day in your life.

C: I wake up the humans at 5:50am every morning for food. I meow and nudge at them to get up. Next, I meow and run downstairs once the humans finally get up to feed me. I meow more and nudge the human’s leg while the wet food is being opened. I gobble up my wet food and eat any leftovers my brother or sister may have left. Then, I jump up on my favorite brown chair and put my missing leg over the chair arm and watch the human sister eat breakfast. I get up from the chair, play with my catnip toys and my light up crinkle tunnel. I meow at the human to let me out on to the catio. I hiss and protest when the humans leave and I have to go back inside. Then I nap and eat my dry food while I wait for my humans to come home. I meow at the humans when they come home. I sleep and go on the catio while they do homework. I meow for dinner. I follow the humans downstairs for TV time. I sleep some more and then repeat again next morning.

KM: Wow you have really gotten your routine down to the T! That is very impressive! What do you REALLY think of your human?

C: I really love my human and would do anything to make her happy. I even let my human cry on my fur when she has had a bad day.

KM: Aww that is so nice of you Cobalt! It is so nice when we can make our humans feel better isn’t it? What is your most favourite kind of food?

C: My favorite kind of food would have to be Blue Buffalo Healthy Gourmet Chicken Flavor in Meaty Morsels

KM: If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

C: It would have to be the Petlink Mystery Motion Electronic Cat Toy

KM: That sounds like fun! I must tell Mama to look into that! How would you describe your sense of style?

C: I have always been a meowdel since I was a kitten and like to accessorize and show off my tan fur and missing leg with cat feather toys, scarfs, bow ties and just going as the handsome model I am!

IMG_0019

 

KM: Well, I am sure those lady kitties will be just throwing themselves at you when they see your meowdelling skills! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

C: I DO not like dogs at all as I only have three legs and get scared of them. I love and get along with other cats just fine. Sometimes, I play wrestle with my brother and sister but it’s all in good fun!

KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?

C: If I had one wish, it would be to get all the special needs kitties and kitties deemed unlucky or un-adoptable to all find wonderful homes like I did!

KM: That is a wonderful wish Cobalt! Do you have any special skills?

C: Indeed! I do have a special skill. My special skill is waking my humans up at inappropriate hours for petting and treats. I also have some pretty sick dance moves.

 

KM: Can you show me some moves? (Cobalt busts a few, amazing moves….. Applause!) That’s fantastic! You are an amazing dancer! Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

C: I feel like cats getting into politics and making the world kinder is a wonderful idea. The world is filled with too much hate and negativity and I believe that if kitties were to get into politics that the world would be a happier and cuter place!

KM: That is so true. We are definitely a better species to run this world! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

C: I like being able to meet and interact with new kitties. I do not like how Instagram turns into drama sometimes (mostly out of the Cats of Instagram community)

KM: Do you have a special someone in your life?

C: I don’t currently have a special someone in my life but I used to have a beautiful special kitty and her name was Precious.

KM: If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

C: A perfect date night for me would be going out to dinner with my special ladycat. After dinner, we would lay underneath the stars and watch an outdoor movie showing of ‘A Street Cat Named Bob’. My perfect date night would end with my beautiful lady cat, eating Temptation treats.

KM: You are such a romantic! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

C: In the near future, I would like to spread the word about how awesome special needs kitties are and even if we are missing a leg or an eye, we are just as loving and should be adopted into forever homes. I hope to accomplish this and help special kitties like me get adopted.

813844C4-4502-4512-BD4D-28DEDF996654

KM: Cobalt, you are such an amazing kitty with a very kind heart! Thanks so much for joining me today on Katdid Konversations! I will see you at the next pawty!

Katdid Konversation With Wallace

Good morning pawsies!

It’s a beautiful Sunday to have a chat with a wonderful furriend!

Please say hello to Wallace, a brave and adventurous cat! Wallace is currently going through some health issues but it doesn’t stop him from living his best life! I am so honoured to have this chat with him!

20151115_151052

An Introduction by Wallace

Wallace Pepperspray is my given name stated on my documents. My Daddy calls me ‘hound dog’ because he thinks I act more like a dog than a cat. 16 years ago, I found myself at the city animal shelter. The young guys working intake named me Wallace. They told humom that I needed a dignified, “big” name to fit my big personality. I met my humom at the shelter. She was the Animal Control Officer of our city at the time. Pepperspray came into play because of a couple of silly reasons. Before I was neutered, I would spray any and everybody, looking for someone to call my own. I have black spots on my skin and fur, mixed in between some of my tiger stripes. Humom used to carry pepperspray for work. After I was neutered, they stopped calling me that.  When my humans created my social media accounts, I became known as Hounddog Wallace. I also have several nicknames.

Age : Unknown. I’ve never told my humans. They rescued me almost 16 years ago. The doctor guessed I was between 2-6 when I met my forever family. It’s understood I’m at least 17.

Hometown : Kenosha, WI

KM: Thanks so much for joining me today Wallace! It is a great pleasure to be able to have this chat with you! Let’s start by talking about how you found your forever family.

W: I was picked up off the mean streets and brought to the shelter. Humom worked for the city as the Animal Control Officer. When we met, I was in the infirmary. When she’d walk through, I would stick my paw out of the cage door and cry my saddest song in hopes of catching her attention. I met my Daddy when I got home.

KM: I am so glad you got her attention and she took you home! Describe a day in your life.

W: Blessed. I start and finish my days feeling safe and loved. I never know exactly what new adventure awaits us but we have them everyday. I go all over town, meet new people and visit interesting places.

KM: You definitely have the most interesting life! I love following your adventures! What do you REALLY think of your humans?

W: I love them, unconditionally!

KM: Aww! You are just too sweet! What is your most favourite kind of food?

W: Broiled wild salmon steak.

KM: That is some great taste in food you have! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

W: My ice fishing rod, with the correct string tie on the end. No toy attached to the “hoodie” string, just that.

KM: How would you describe your sense of style?

W: Timeless. Classic. Cool.


KM: What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
W: I try not to think about them. I had traumatic experiences with both cats and dogs as a youngster. I’ll tolerate them and stand my ground. I’d much rather be in the company of humans. I’m cool and even curious about all other animals.

KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?

W: I could live and spend time with my Team Wallace longer.

KM: Oh we all wish the same thing for you. You are such a kind soul and we all want you to be here with us for as long as you can. Do you have any special skills?

W: Many. After I went deaf, I learned sign language. I swim, hunt and fish. I can open doors and play fetch. I enjoy riding in my bike basket and boats without a harness or leash. When I was younger, I would skateboard. I’m good at sledding and enjoyed it last winter. My most special skill is that I can bring smiles to people’s faces. Even bringing joy to those that aren’t “cat people”. If I look at my humans a certain way, I can get them to do anything for me.

KM: Wow! You have so many amazing skills, Wallace! What do you value most in life?

W: Love… giving and receiving.

KM: Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

W: I’m all fur it. The world needs more kindness.

KM: Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

W: Team Wallace and I have had an amazing experience with it. The only regret would be that my silly humans set up my Facebook account as a human page instead of a “fan”, nonhuman page. We had the account for at least 18 months before it was taken down. We completely lost hundreds and hundreds of contacts, photos and art. Team Wallace was hurt and pissed by that and hasn’t gone back yet. That’s why I went to an IG account. I still have my YouTube channel. Check it out ‘Hounddog Wallace’.

KM: I will definitely be checking out the YouTube channel! Do you have a special someone in your life?

W: My humans are very special and mean the world to me.

KM: If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

W: Calm, cool and relaxed.

KM: What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

W: I am the president of The HoundDog Rocketry Club. The engineer is working on the HoundDog2 rocket now. We have our class 1 certification so we can build bigger, faster, go higher. I hope for a successful launch before the weather turns.

KM: You never stop doing amazing things! That is just fabulous! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

W: Even though the doctors have given me only 3-6 months to live, I will fight on. Every day has been a blessing and I am very grateful for what I have been given. If you would like to know more about my current health conditions or are able to make a donation to my medical fund, please visit my Go Fund Me account at Hounddog Wallace Medical Fund. It has been a treat getting to know you. I hope I was able to answer your questions so that you might get to know me a little better. Thank you. The adventure continues…

KM: Wallace, it has been my absolute pleasure getting to know you more. I will help share about your GoFundMe here on the blog as well as on Instagram! I pray that by some miracle, you will heal completely and be here with us for a long, long time!

Katdid Konversation With Lando

Hello furriends!

Welcome to another great edition of Katdid Konversation with your host, Me! Kitty Mojito!

Today I am talking to a very special furriend of mine! Please say hello to Lando! He just turned 2 yesterday, September 9th!! He tells me his hometown is Mos Eisley on Planet Tatooine (Nomadic)!

KM: Welcome to Katdid Konversations Lando! Before we start, I would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day with your family. Shall we start by talking about how you came to find your human? 

L: I was born to a feral mother in Fresno, CA and at one month old, I was cold and scared so I climbed into the warm engine bay of a car. The next morning, that car drove to the county fair with me still in it. The person who owned the car heard me when they arrived. I thought they would help me but instead they pulled me out and tied me to a chain link fence just high enough that I couldn’t get down. A really nice woman and her children heard me crying and rescued me from the fence. First they took me home but their dogs didn’t like me and my savior was scared that they would hurt me. So she took me to the place where she got her dogs fixed. They don’t take stray animals and told her to take me to the shelter. She knew that if she did that it would be a death sentence for me. In Fresno and most of California they automatically put down black cats from the end of September to the first week of November. My savior called a friend who put her in touch with a rescue that my Humon volunteered with. The rescue called my Humon to ask if they would pick me up from her. The Humon agreed and asked where they were and the rescue said that she was in the parking lot of the Spay/ Neuter clinic. It just so happened that the Humon was sitting in the very same lot waiting to pick up Master Skywalker who was getting spayed. The savior was actually parked two cars over and the Humon went to their car. My savior pulled me out of an old dog bed and as soon as the Humon saw me, they knew that I was meant to be with them. I was big for my age and they thought I was two months old. I was a big, black fluff ball and covered in oil and break dust. After they retrieved Master Skywalker, they took me to their home, cleaned me up, and we’ve been together ever since.

Baby Lando

KM: Oh my! What a story to start off with! It is just heartbreaking that so called ‘shelters’ put down black cats (or any cats!) just like that. Describe a day in your life.

L: Nap in da sun or behind da monitor. Eat breakfast and smack around da Padawans for a bit. Take a nap in da shade in da afternoon. Have a midday snack of either whatever da Humon is having for lunch or Temptation. Climb my favorite tree and smack da Padawans around some more. Take another nap in da sun. Beat up my BroFur Finn and run around chasing da Padawans. Help da Humon eat their dinner, den sleep behind da monitor. Once the Humon goes to bed, I plot world domination.

KM: That is one busy day you have going on! What do you REALLY think of your human?

L: Dat they belong to me and dey are da best Humon minion a cat could ask for.

KM: What is your most favorite kind of food?

L: Sheba cuts!  I won’t eat any other brand! Temptation treats, cheddar cheese, chicken and tuna, goat’s milk anything.

KM: OOh sounds delicious! I have never had this Sheba cuts before! They sound yummy! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

L: My BroFur

KM: Haha! You are too funny Lando! Not sure how Finn feels about being your toy! LOL! How would you describe your sense of style?

L: I’m sexy and I know it.

KM: Definitely! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

L: Well I mez Papa is a pug so I be good with almost all doggiez. I really, really hate birds! Dey only be good for eating. Az long az dey know I iz in charge I iz good wit other catz.

With Papa Pug

KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?

L: Dat da Humon could raise enough money to start dare Sanctuary so dat other Black and Feral Cats dat are not az lucky az me can be saved and have a safe place to live out dare lifez.

KM: That is a very special wish indeed! I think if we all help spread the word about it, we can help the Humon raise the much needed money. The sanctuary sounds like an amazing place. Do you have any special skills?

L: I iz a Je’Daii and Iz usez mez mind tricks to control da Humon.

KM: Oooh ! Mind control!! I don’t have that kind of skill sadly! What do you value most in life?

L: My Humon and my BroFur Finn.

KM: Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

L: Sure, if dey want too! Whatever floatz dare boat be okay wit mez.

KM: Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

L: Iz meet mez girlfriend, Tilda on IG so dat be mez most favorite ting. Dat people usez it do harm be mez least favorite ting.

KM: Sweet Tilda! You guys make an adorable couple! Tell us a bit more about her!

L: Mez girlfriend Tilda, she be the SisFur of @godric_and_jojo_show. Mez favorite ting about her iz her eyez and her fierce attitude. She’z got lotz of spunk and iz strong enough to control her BroFurz. Her Meowmy iz da Humon’z pawtner in saving unwanted kittiez. Datz how wez meet.

Lando’s favourite edit of him and Tilda!

KM: If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

L: Dat be between mez and Tilda. Diz cat be a gentlecat and dare are sometings dat Iz just don’t share.

KM: Fair enough! You don’t want to ruin any surprises 🙂 What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

L: In da nearest future, another nap but after dat I’d like to help change how peoplez see Black Catz. Show dem our beauty and dat dare superstitions are unfounded. In many placez in diz big world, Black Catz be good luck not bad luck but in America, people still believe dat wez be bad. Black Cats be the most overlooked and unwanted catz and kittenz of all da different color of catz. Black and Feral Cats are da first to be euthanized in shelters all across da US. Diz will only change when people realize da uniqueness and beauty of both typez of catz.

Lando at 6 months old!

KM: A great message to share indeed! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

L: Adopt don’t shop and pick a Black Cat or Kitten because you will be saving a life and getting da best companion youz could ever ask for.

KM: That is so important! Never shop! Always adopt! There are so many animals in shelters, desperate for a forever home! Lando, thank you so much for chatting with me! You and your human does so much life saving work! We are all very proud to call you friends 🙂
