Katdid Konversation with Roger, Jimmy & Lottie

Hello furriends!
Welcome to another great edition of Katdid Konversations!
I am your host, Kitty Mojito!
Today we are chatting with some cool Brits from Tamworth, Staffordshire.
Please say hello to Roger (11), Jimmy (3) and Lottie (1)

KM: Hi guys! Welcome to the show! Thanks so much for being here today! Let’s start by talking about how you all found your human. Tell me your stories.

R: I was a street cat, then took in by an abusive household. I was rescued and Mommy and Daddy fostered me. Their current furbaby, Ebby was dying and they fostered me to help them cope with their grief. I was a foster fail and they couldn’t give me up!

J: Mommy decided Roger needed a playmate. Mommy and Daddy saw me on a rescue page and as I looked like Roggie, they thought it must be fate! Mommy came and picked me up. I was 16 weeks old. Turns out Roger didn’t like me very much!

L: Mommy had lost two girl cats in two years and felt overrun with men in the house with Daddy, Jimmy and Roger and wanted a little girl. Mommy saw me on a rescue site and came to meet me. She loved me from first sight and I came home with Mommy when I was 18 weeks. I’m one now, two in September.

 
KM: What lovely stories guys! I am so glad you all found each other and your awesome pawrents! Describe a day in your life.

R: I’m lazy. I had a tough life on the street so I enjoy a few home comforts. I love to lay on top of the cat tree. The little ones can’t get me up there. I like to chill in the sun, roll on my back with my paws in the air. No one is allowed to tickle my tummy though or you may lose a finger. I love a snack. I tend to graze throughout the day and if they are a bit slow putting my bowl down, I give them a nudge by howling with my head in the air.

J: I love to run round at a hundred miles an hour, jump on and off the beds, the sofa and sprint in and out of each room. It keeps me fit. Vet said I’m a bit overweight so I find it helps. I love to play chase with birdie and I like to bite and chase my sister too. Most of the day, you will find me sleeping on Mommy or my blankey or sitting by the window bird watching. I chat to them but sadly they don’t chat back.

L: I love bird watching! It’s my favourite pastime. I chat very loudly to them. I want them to be my friends. I also love to play! Tunnels are my favourite. I have 3 tunnels and a cube and can usually be found in one of them. I love treats and know where they are kept. So I often sit, climb or claw the treat cupboard!  After all that, a nap is in order!

KM: Sounds like a super fun household! What do you all REALLY think of your human?

R: I love the humans. Mommy says I’m a big softie. Daddy is my favourite human. I love to lay on his chest. He has a big broad chest so plenty of room for me as I’m a big cat. I fall off Mommy’s lap as she’s too small! I like her though, she feeds me and kisses me. I don’t really like kisses but she feeds me so I have to be nice to her. I always know when Daddy is on his way back from work. I wait by the window for him and I speak to him when he comes in. I get excited even though I’m getting older in years!

J: I love my Mommy! She’s the best! I just love her so much! I can’t bear to be without her. I go everywhere with her, bath, toilet, kitchen, living room, you name it. I love Daddy too. I give equal amounts of kisses to both. I love giving kisses and I need lots of kisses too. If they don’t kiss me or love me, then I go and fetch duck and cry and walk round with him in my mouth. You can usually find me attached to Mommy.

L: Humans are ok. I like them but I’m my own person. I have recently started climbing into bed with Mommy when Daddy goes to work. I only stay a little while. It’s nice and warm and she seems so happy. I might do it regularly or I might not. We will see how it goes. Mommy feeds me and gives me treats so I like her. I let Daddy fuss me but not for too long. There’s always something else I could be doing! Things to do, people to see!

KM: Haha! You guys are so funny! I love all the little habits that you all have! What is your most favourite kind of food?

R: I love ham! Oh how I love ham! I cry, scream and jump at the fridge. I know ham is in there! Tuna is OK, don’t mind tuna. I like a bit of chicken and turkey occasionally. To be fair, I’d eat anything but ham is my love!

J: We all eat dry food and have since I was a kitten. I’m not that keen on human food but I love treats! If Mommy has tuna, I have to have some. I like a bit of tuna!
L: I love food! Just food in general! I love treats especially these cheese and ham ones my Mommy got just for me. I like tuna and salmon too but I love treats, any treats in any shape or form!

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

R: I don’t do toys. I like to sleep. I’m getting old! There is a catnip thing that looks like a bit of wood, that’s ok and I’ll rub on it but nah! Toys are for babies.

J: I love duck! He’s the best! He goes everywhere with me. He got lost once and I cried and sulked for 24 hours. Luckily, Mommy found him and I  was ok again. Mommy said to Daddy “What are we going to do when duck falls apart?”. It will be the end of the world!

L: I like Birdie. He’s on a pole and I like to catch it and chew it. I always catch it! He don’t stand a chance. I’m a fierce hunter. I play with Jimmy and birdie but he’s too slow. I always get there first. He sulks a lot when he loses!

Jimmy

KM: Do you guys like to dress up? If you do, how would you describe your sense of style?

R: I’m a relaxed kinda guy. I don’t wear clothes of any type! Try to make me at your peril. You will find me upside down with my feet in the air a lot of the time relaxing. However, I permanently wear a tux so it does not suit my style.

J: I’m disheveled!  My fur is always sticking up and I look like I’ve been somewhere I shouldn’t. I tend to be covered in floof and grit! I’ve never worn clothes but if Mommy put them on me I’d probably pull them off in seconds. Like Roggie, I permanently wear a tux but it isn’t really me.

L: I’m told I’m pretty every day. I think I’m elegant and pretty. I’m a proper girl. I’m fluffy and very stylish. I’ve never worn clothes or accessories but Mommy might try me in a pretty pink collar or bandana. I think I’d look beautiful.

KM: I think all of you will look lovely in some bandanas or bowties. Lottie, you must tell your mommy to check out the bandanas in my Mama’s store CrazyCatLadyCorner! You will love it! OK, what are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

R: HATE THEM! I had to get used to these two idiots and that was bad enough!

J: I’d like to say hello, possibly? I’m not sure….

L: Take em or leave em!

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

R: If I had a wish, I’d make Jimmy and Lottie disappear!

J: If I had a wish, I would make a new home with a garden so we can go outside and chat with the birds.

L: Same as Jimmy! We want to move away from the busy road and go outside and explore. Plus a life supply of treats and to make Jimmy stop biting me! Sorry that’s 3! Whoops!


KM: Roger! I think you will miss Jimmy and Lottie if they were not around! I hope you get you wish for a new home soon! Do you have any special skills?

R: I have survival skills! I lived on the street for a number of years. I do not need them anymore though, I am waited on hand and foot!

J: I can run really fast! I can make it from the bathroom to the kitchen in 2 seconds!

L: I am the fastest eater in the west! I eat all mine and then get to Jimmy’s or Roger’s and eat theirs too before Mommy notices! I am also very good at catching my crinkly ball by standing up on my back feet and catching it in my front paws. Mommy says I’m so clever!


KM: Those are some very impressive skills! What do you value most in life?

R: FOOD!

J: DUCK and Mommy

L: TREATS!

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

R: I think we would all get on better in single cat households. One cat per house would be a great policy. I would get so much more sleeping done. Life would be bliss!

J: I think kisses should be mandatory, we need a kissing policy. I need regular head and nose kisses.

L:
Sooty Paws recently stood for Pawminister! He is doing a wonderful job and has a number of great policies. He appointed me as Peacemaker Minister as I have to sort out Jimmy and Roger on a regular basis.
 
KM: All very interesting policies guys! Are you sure you wouldn’t want to run for office? Lottie, I will look up Sooty Paws! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

R: We have made loads of furrfriends on Insta. Mommy loves it, all the Mommies chat. I can take it or leave it to be honest. A lot of the human Mommies seem to like my tuxedo and pink nose and want to kiss and cuddle me. I might quite like that now and then but I do like a quiet life.

J: I love all our furrfriends. They are so cute and they do so many interesting things. I sit on Mommy’s lap and watch all the videos. I love them all!

L: I love all our furrfrriends too. They make me smile and tell me how lovely I am. They make me feel special and pretty. We have so many pretty and handsome furrfriends. I love to see them all. Mommy recently played matchmaker and paired 25 couples for the #petprom2017! She loved it and our furrfriends loved it too. We all had a great time at the prom. Me and Jimmy love all the pawties we go to.

Roger and Jimmy

KM: That is awesome! PetProm2017 was so much fun! Do you have a special someone in your life?

R: I took the beautiful Ally to the prom. She is very pretty. I like her. I am getting on now though and not sure anyone would have me! Plus I am set in my ways.

J: I love my Duck and Mommy! Not sure there is room or anyone else. I did take Willow June to the Prom and she is very pretty but her Daddy says she too little to have a boyfriend.

L: I went to the prom with Sooty Paws. He is a lovely, shiny black panfur and very handsome. He is currently away on holiday at the moment but has promised me a gift when he comes back. We might start going on dates. I am hoping he will ask me. Daddy said I’m too little as I’m not yet 2 but we will see.

 
KM: I think anyone will be lucky to date you guys! You are all so much fun! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

R: As long as it involved food I would be there! Obviously there would be a young lady too and a nice moonlit walk, paw in paw, a nice meal and a nap would be just lovely.

J: Can I take Mommy? and Duck?

L: I would like to go somewhere sophisticated like afternoon tea at the Ritz, with tuna sandwiches and tunatinis. I could wear a pretty pink dress. Perhaps Sooty Paws could take me?

lottie2

Lottie


KM: That sounds wonderful Roger and Lottie! Ummm.. Jimmy… you can’t take your Mommy on your date… (Whispers to Roger: “You better have a talk with this boy!) 
 
What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

R: I would like to finish my nap, finish my dinner and then we shall see what follows. 

J: I would like to improve my sprinting time, get the bathroom to kitchen sprint down to a second and half. I’m in training.

L: I would like to bring out my own cosmetics and beauty range. I am thinking of calling it Lottie Loves. It would contain floof volumiser, shine oil, nose balm and cracked paw cream.

KM: I think you will all do amazing in accomplishing your future goals! Lottie, I look forward to your beauty line! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

Thank you for interviewing us, it was so nice to meet you. Please pop round again soon!

KM: Thanks so much for joining me today guys! I loved spending this time with you!

Katdid Konversation with Joey, Tux, Marvin & Bob

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!

beast2

 

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!

beast1

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.

beast7

Joey taking care of Tux as a baby

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!!!

beast13

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!

Katdid Konversation with Pebbles, Sparrow and Peanut!

 Hi everypawdy! Welcome to Katdid Konversations!
I am your host, Kitty Mojito!
I have an extra special treat for you today!
My guests today are three amazing kitties from Miami, Florida!
Please welcome  Sparrow, Peanut, and Pebbles!
 psp2
KM: I am thrilled to chat with you guys today!! Thanks so much for joining me! So let’s start by talking about how you came to find your human?

PSP: We were all adopted through Smitten with Kittens, a non-profit no kill organization. One day Meowmy was shopping next to a Petsmart and decided to go inside with no expectations of adopting a kitty. Inside she found me (Sparrow) and my two brothers (they were already adopted), Captain and Jack. I cried for her until she picked me up. What a sucker! After 2 seconds I had her! She went home with me that day.

I got really sick after a few days and they say I was probably depressed because I missed my brothers. So Meowmy went back the following weekend and adopted Peanut. We were so close since day one. We cuddled and played and were inseparable!

And yet another week later, Meowmy made the mistake of logging on to their website and saw Pebbles. She was so cute and looked like a little possum. Her story was sad. They found her behind a restaurant with her mother who had been hit by a car and didn’t survive. She didn’t do well at adoption events and had really bad anxiety. Meowmy wanted to help and had to drive an hour to the fosters to go see her. She fell in love and adopted her. We didn’t get along at first but a week in we all loved each other.


KM: Your Meowmy is so kind to take three kitties in! Describe a day in your life.

PSP: Well it starts off at 5am when I, Sparrow, pull Meowmy’s hair and Peanut meows like crazy until she gets up and feeds us. Once we eat, we are nice enough to let her go back to sleep because we need a warm body to cuddle with. On weekdays, Meowmy usually goes to work and we sleep, sleep and sleep. On weekends, she is usually home spending time with us. She acts as our Social Media Manager, Meowdeling Manager and Photographer (you know, since we are meowdels and all).

We are very spoilt kitties and live the good life. We had tons of accessories (bow-ties, flowers, bandanas) and tons of toys. I think we have trained our Meowmy very well.

 

IMG_4744

KM: Oh definitely! You have her under your pretty little paws! LOL! I must congratulate you all on your budding meowdeling careers! But tell me, what do you REALLY think of your human? 

PSP: We wish we could say that she is our servant and does whatever we want but we love her and she loves us. We ARE treated like royalty BUT we show Meowmy just as much love.

KM: That is very sweet guys. What is your most favourite kind of food?

PSP: We love seafood, the wet kind, but we are on this crappy weight management food (I mean seriously?? We are meowdels! How can we possibly need to lose weight?!?!?)

KM: I think it’s so you can all stay healthy and strong so you can do even more meowdeling! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

PSP: Oh this is tough… For me (Sparrow) it’s Meowmy’s hair ties! Those are the best!  Peanut loves catching prey in the middle of the night so he likes to catch mice toys. And Pebbles loves wand toys.

IMG_5029

 

KM: Now I know you guys are some of the most well dressed cats out there! How would you describe your sense of style?

PSP: Fashionable! We love dressing up and looking cute. We actually sit still when Meowmy does a wardrobe change!


KM: It definitely shows in all the wonderful photos that you post! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

PSP: We haven’t really had too much experience with dogs after coming to our forever home. Our fosters had dogs and I used to ride on the dogs back. Most other animals, well they look delicious. Our hubro used to have a hamster and we would sit and watch him. Meowmy did put him in the hamster ball once and we got scared. I mean, no, no. We were brave and scared the hamster.

KM: You guys are too funny! If you could make one wish, what would it be?

PSP: That all cats/dogs are lucky enough to find the love and care we were lucky enough to find. And if we have a 2nd wish, unlimited supply of treats!

 

IMG_5085

KM: I am with you on both those wishes!! Do you have any special skills?

PSP: I (Sparrow) know how to calm my Meowmy down no matter what is bothering her. Peanut has almost learned to sit on command but it’s really when he wants to. And of course, we have our signature meowdeling poses down! Head tilts and adorable faces.

KM: You are all amazing at your meowdeling!  What do you guys value most in life?

PSP: Our meowmy without a doubt.


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

PSP: Wait, I thought we already ruled the world?!?! If not, we should.

KM: Haha! I think we secretly rule the world and no one else knows it!! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?


PSP:
We love meeting all of our great furriends amd Meowmy has really made some ameowzing connections with their hoomans, but this is really about us, not her. We don’t like the whole follower count and people who follow to unfollow. We want furriends who truly connect with us.

KM: That is so true. So many people follow but don’t interact! Do you guys have any special someones in your lives?

PSP: We are all lucky to have many special someones in our lives! I (Sparrow) have my sweet Jimmy aka Jimbo (@we3catbros). I fainted after watching him perform with the Orange Crush Cat Band. After that, it was love at first sight. Peanut is with Zippy (@collins_cats). They both played hard to get and we all knew where it was heading. They are purrfect for each other. It’s not all lovey dovey like me and Jimmy, but it’s so them! Pebbles has Tony (@tony_bologna_cat). They’ve been together the longest and I think they look so adorable together with their silly faces. 💕 I adore how he calls her bootiful!

KM: That is just so wonderful! They are all my furriends too!! If any of you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

PSP:  For me (Sparrow) I’m all about romance. I like the smooches, romantic dinners and occasional stalking of Dex (@dex_the_cat_life) and his not girlfriend, girlfriend, Stella (Jimmy’s actual cousin). Peanut likes going for rides with Zippy and feeling the wind through their fur. They are all about the adventure life! Pebbles loves going to fun pawties with Tony. He throws the best ones!

 

IMG_5132

 

KM: Yes! Tony’s pawties are epic!  I love how you guys are into so many different things! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

PSP: We’d like to try to venture outside when we move to our new apartment. We hear we are right next to a gorgeous lake and in a quiet complex. It’s much calmer than where we live now. Hopefully we won’t freak out! 🙀

KM: Sounds beautiful! I can’t wait to see photos of all your outdoor adventures! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

PSP: We hope to make more furriends and get to know all of COI better. We are silly kitties who don’t take too much seriously.

IMG_20170607_212656_705
KM: Peanut, Sparrow and Pebbles, thank you so much for taking time from your busy lives to sit down for a chat with me today! I loved getting to know you guys more and I’m sure your followers did too!

Katdid Konversation with Katniss

Welcome to Katdid Konversations, the coolest place to be on this fabulous Sunday morning!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

Today we are chatting with the feisty and fabulous Katniss from Hertfordshire, England!

 katniss9
 
KM: Thanks for joining me today Katniss! It is so lovely to have you here. Can you tell me how you found your human?
K: My mum was looking for a cat and my mum’s friend knew that I was looking for a home. My Mum came to meet me the same day and took me home.
KM: That’s very sweet! Now that you have found your forever home, how do you spend your day?
K: I have an easy relaxing life. My mum works from home so I spend all day sitting with her while she gets her work done. I’m also an indoor kitty.
 
KM: You’re so lucky! I too love it when my pawrents are home with me all day! What do you REALLY think of your human?
K: She can be annoying sometimes. She constantly takes my picture!  When I eat, when I groom she is there taking photos. But I love her. 
 
KM: Ha ha! Tell me about it! Mine does the same thing! I swear the only privacy I get is when I use the potty. Anyway, on to more pleasant things…. What is your most favourite kind of food?
K: Chicken and gravy 
 
KM: Mmmmmm…… delicious! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?
K: My rocket fuel catnip mouse 
 
KM: Wow! That sounds like an amazing toy! How would you describe your sense of style?
K: Pink and girlie 
 
KM: I bet you must look lovely in all your accessories. You look marvelous in this bandana you are wearing! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
K: Cats rule, dogs drool. Cats are definitely at the top of the hierarchy. 
KM: Those are some wise words Katniss! If you could make one wish, what would it be?
K: That every cat has a loving home with lots of love, food and toys.

Katdid Konversation With Sisu

What a fabulous day it is to chat with a wonderful furriend!
Welcome to Katdid Konversations!
I am your host, Kitty Mojito!
Today we are heading to the beautiful city of Calgary to chat with distinguished 18 year old gentleman Sisu!
IMG_3339
KM: Thanks for joining me today Sisu! It is an honour to finally get to chat with you! Let’s get started by talking a bit about your past. How did you come to find your human?
S: I was found in an industrial area of Calgary in January, the coldest time of the year. Luckily, a kind worker noticed me and took the time to catch me and take me to a shelter. Here they did the old snip-snip and fixed me up in other ways. I was very malnourished and had some skin problems but they took very good care of me. The first day I was put up for adoption, my hoomins came in and immediately took me to the play room. They smelled nice and talked to me so much that I went right up to them and started purring. Next thing I know, I’m in a box with a bunch of food and cat stuff all around me, riding in a car to my furrever home.
 
KM: That is a wonderful start to your great life! Describe a day in your life
S: I wait outside the bedroom door and the second I hear them moving, I start meowing in very short, sharp loud bursts. That’s why they call me The Trumpet. I only ever do this first thing in the morning. It’s my reminder to them that my food bowl is empty, or at least there is a hole in the middle of the kibble. Isn’t that horrible? I sit on their laps while they have their tea and coffee and read the paper. I like reading the paper too, by crumpling it up. After breakfast, I sit on my perch and sleep. Then I move upstairs and continue napping throughout the day, on the couch or under the lamp. Evenings are often movie or book time which means I get to sit on laps and snuggle. Oh, and nap some more before bedtime.
 
IMG_0545
KM: That sounds very cozy! Now if your human has returned home from a very long day of running errands, how do you greet him/her?
S: I run to the door. I’m not aloof like some cats. I meow and rub myself on their legs to let them know how much I missed them, how much I love them. Also, by doing this, sometimes I get extra treats.
 
KM: Extra treats are the best aren’t they? What kind of food do you like?
S: TUNA.  Ahem. I might have lost it for a moment but I go crazy for tuna. I don’t eat any other human food except sometimes I’ll get a piece of extra old Balderson’s cheddar. No other cheese, just that one. With tuna.
 
KM: What is your favourite toy?
S: My green mousie. I’ve had it for a long time and I love to carry it around. Often I put it in Meowmy’s shoe. It’s safe there.
 
KM: Sisu, you have a few years under your belt. How has your sense of style developed over the years?
S: I am dapper and old fashioned. I am a senior cat after all so I like the bowtie and suspenders look. It suits me and my mellow mood.
 
KM: You definitely do rock that look! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
S: I do not like other animals. The hoomins tried to introduce another cat with the help of my Meowmy’s sister, who works in animal shelters and knows how to do these things, and I told them who was boss. No way was I sharing my space with another kitty! It’s okay though because Meowmy’s sister adopted the other kitty and he has a great home. His name is Wyatt. It all worked out for the best.
 
KM: I hear you… I’m not sure about other cats either! Although Mama keeps saying that we should get another kitty. Like I’m not enough for her! Jeez!… Anyway, if you could make one wish, what would it be?
S: I wish people were more educated about animal welfare and realize that animals are living beings, NOT objects. There needs to be more done for education about spay and neuter programs, how that stops so much suffering. Also, tied in to this, our laws need to change to reflect animals being treated as living, breathing beings with harsher penalties for people who don’t respect this.
IMG_4917
 
KM: Most definitely. The animal procetion laws here in Canada are so pathetic! Sisu, do you have any special skills?
S: Purring. Definitely purring. My purr is deep and loud. Sometimes in the morning when I am so excited to see the hoomins, I get a squeak in my purr and it makes them laugh but I keep on purring.
 
KM: What things are most important to you now? 
S: Changing laws on animal abuse and cruelty. In Canada, the laws haven’t been changed in decades and the one that tried to be passed last fall failed. Meowmy is researching and finding out what to do to re-word the law and get it on the floor again. Canada needs to catch up to modern times. Also, paws need claws. That is another petition that needs to be refreshed and made into law, like most Western countries already have in place.
 
KM: How do you feel about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?
S: I think we could learn a lot from cats. I definitely follow #derpcabnet and Mr. Derpurrez @little_franklin_ Many of the top issues regarding cat welfare are brought up through these posts. Also, the COI community is fantastic for being supportive and caring of all who are on there. Maybe hoomins could learn a bit more about getting along and accepting others even if they are different from one another.
IMG_9188
 
KM: Hey, I’m in the DerpCabnet too!! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?
S: There is real in the unreal on IG. I have friends on IG who I haven’t met, yet I feel as if we have known each other forever. There are true bonds and connections that form from sharing and caring and that is so beautiful. I don’t like all the ads. What’s up with that?!
 
KM: I share that sentiment with you Sisu! Do you have a special someone in your life? 
S: My hoomins. Both give me different kinds of love. Meowmy spoils me and kisses me and cuddles me so much. Catdad does too but he plays and rough houses more with me, which I like as well. Different types of affection but I can tell they love me so much. I love them too. I’m grateful to have found them.
IMG_9602
 
KM: Don’t tell me a handsome hunk like you is single! No way! What is your dream date?
S:  Quiet classical music with some tunatinis. Me in a bowtie, her in a ball room gown. I’m an old fashioned romantic.
 
KM: Sounds so dreamy! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?
S: I really would like to consume some more tuna. It’s been awhile. Might have to get on the hoomins about that.
 
KM: Is there anything else you would like to say?
S: I am really grateful to have found the COI community. Meowmy was unsure about IG but now she feels the love and support of like-minded people. She also loves the fact that by being on IG, she has taken more photos of me and created a photo journal of my life and that matters a lot to her. She loves the sharing that people do, about their cats, their lives, their passions, everything. A big thank you for all who follow us! Head bonks and tail hugs to each and every one of you.
KM: Sisu, it was so great to share this time with you. We love you and your meowmy (and catdad!) so much and look forward to more of your adventures!

Katdid Konversation With Pelusa and Melon

Welcome to another wonderful edition of Katdid Konversations!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

Today we are chatting with two lovely ladies from the beautiful city of Tenerife, Canary Islands.

Please say hello to Pelusa (3) and Melon (2)!

DSC_0192

KM: Ladies, it is so lovely to meet you! How was your flight from Spain? Good I hope! So let’s start with your history. How did you come to find your human?

Pelusa: My humans saw an ad that said that there were some kitties that needed to be adopted. They had recently lost our other sister Picota, who sadly we never met, so they decided to get another cat because a home without a cat is just a house.

Melon: My humans were looking for a sister for Pelusa so that she would have someone to play and fight with. They saw me in an online ad and they were captivated by me.

KM: Wonderful! Now what is a day in your life like? What do you both do?

P & M: We love to wake our humans up early, to let them know we’re hungry and that it’s time for breakfast. If they don’t wake up, we’ll start meowing and jumping on them until they do! We loooove it, it’s lots of fun! Everypawdy should try it. After breakfast, we chill in our teepee and take a nap until we’re hungry again. And in general that’s pretty much what we do. We eat, sleep, and play. It’s a pretty tough life.

Pelusa: I’m a very active cat, so I love to climb things whenever I can. My favourite place to climb is the wardrobe because I can spy on the people on the street. I also like to climb on the shower, because I’m fascinated by it, although I don’t like to get wet.

Melon: I’m more chill than Pelusa and I looove to cuddle with humom and take long naps. I don’t get why Pelusa likes climbing when there’s no food on the wardrobe or the shower. I guess she’s a little wild.

KM: That sounds so relaxing!  What do you REALLY think of your human?

P & M: Mmmm….. I cannot say too many bad things, because they’re the ones who feed us but I guess they’re alright. They have us on a diet now because the vet says that Melon is overweight. That’s so rude! The vet should look herself in the mirror before saying those things. We don’t love our eating schedule, but other than that we’re really spoiled cats. We’re living the good life.

KM: That is true. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you 🙂 Speaking of feeding, what is your most favourite kind of food?

P & M: We’re obsessed with tuna, wet food and pates. Every time we see our humans with a can of wet food, we go crazy.

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

Pelusa: One of those feathery toys with the long stick. Every time the humans show it to me, I get so excited.

Melon: A paper roll. It doesn’t matter what my humans buy me, I’ll always play with paper rolls.

DSC_0107

KM: Hmm, both very good choices. The paper roll is always so much fun isn’t it? How would you describe your sense of style?

P & M: Mmmm….. we don’t love wearing anything, because we don’t need accessories to look gorgeous, although Meowmy sometimes makes us wear bow-ties.

KM: You guys! You must try out some outfits! I’m sure you both will look just fabulous! I will get my Mama to send you some bandanas! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

P & M: We’re indoor cats, so we haven’t really met many animals besides our humans, but we’re usually scared of the animals we don’t know.

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

P & M: To have an open tuna bar. Eating tuna 24/7….. we’re thinking about it and our mouths are watering.

DSC_0215

KM: Wouldn’t that be just fantastic? Wow! Imagine…. unlimited tuna….. OK, OK, let’s not get sidetracked. Do you guys have any special skills?

Melon: I just learnt to sit but I just do it for the treats. Other than that, I guess being super cute and getting away with anything.

Pelusa: I can jump up to places that you would think are impossible.  I’m also super cute so I get away with anything too.

KM: Being super cute sure must have its perks! What do you value most in life?

Melon: Food, Pelusa and cuddles with my humans.

Pelusa: The coffee maker. I love marking it, although I let the humans use it in the morning. I guess Melon and my humans too, but after the coffee maker of course.

KM: A coffee maker? Pelusa, that is …ummmmm….interesting. Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

P & M: We believe that the world should be ruled by cats so that nothing bad would ever happen again. We love that cats are getting into politics, because as we see it, we’re the future.

DSC_0227

KM: We definitely are the future! I hope everyone out there got that message! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

P & M: One thing we’re impressed with is the kindness, love and support there is in the Instagram Cat Community. When Meowmy made our profile, she wasn’t sure what to expect and it has completely exceeded her expectations.

We’ve made so many furriends in the last few months and we’re so grateful for each and every one of them. Without Instagram, we would have never met so many wonderful kitties.

KM: Yes, the COI community is definitely the best! Do you have a special someone in your life? 

Pelusa: Right now, I’m taking some ‘me’ time and focusing on myself.

Melon: Not really, although there’s a kitty named Bach who looks like me, and I think he has a thing for me, but we’ll see where things take us.

KM: Melon, a secret crush?? Oooh! How romantic! If you were to go on a date, what would that perfect day/night look like?

P & M: If you’re with the right person, it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you’re together.

DSC_0313

KM: Awww. that is such a sweet sentiment. You guys are just so adorable! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

P & M: We’d love to rule the world as we said earlier, but for now, we’ll start by ruling our home.

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

P & M: First thank you for this lovely interview Mojito! We’re so glad to have met you and we look forward to getting to know each other more. Also, excuse our English, because as you can see it’s not our first language. Lots of kisses.

DSC_0318

 

KM: Pelusa and Melon, thank you so much for this wonderful chat! I’m so happy to have made some wonderful new furriends as you! Looking forward to getting to know you both too! And by the way, your English is perfect!

Katdid Konversation With Bizzy

Hello dear furriends! Welcome to Katdid Konversations!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

I have an extra special guest here with me today all the way from South Africa.

Please give a warm welcome to Bizzy, one of the bravest kitties I know!

IMG_9013

KM: Thanks so much for joining me today Bizzy! I am so excited to get this opportunity to chat with you! So let’s talk about how you found your human. Tell us the story.

B: My Mauwie’s tabby cat, Buddy crossed the rainbow bridge at the golden age of 23. She said she waited a while and when it was time to get another cat, she decided she wanted a “real” Siamese. She approached a few Siamese Registered Cat Breeders on the internet and she contacted my Siamese cat breeder. The breeder sent Mauwie pictures – I was 1 of 2 kittens in a litter. From pictures, the Purrents decided on me. When I was old enough to leave the Cattery (around 12 weeks old),  I was put on a plane for a 3 hour flight to my new home in Cape Town, South Africa.

KM: Wow, you were so brave to travel so far all by yourself! Describe a day in your life.

B: Breakfast, morning nap, morning play, afternoon nap, afternoon play, afternoon neighbourhood leash walk, supper, evening nap, tv time nap, bedtime treat, night night sleep.

KM: What a busy schedule you have! What is your most favourite kind of food?

B: Meat! And more meat … chicken.

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

B: My catnip mouse. I bathe them all the time.

KM: Ah yes, the nip mousies. They are some of my favourites too! How would you describe your sense of style?

B: With a pedigree of champions and show supreme champions, I am posh.

KM: Indeed you are! Now Bizzy, you are a special kitty who has been affected by Progressive Retinal Atrophy also know as PRA. Tell us a bit about PRA and how it has affected your life?

B:  I went blind at the age of two. At first, I would walk into furniture or run into walls but now my other senses are very sharp. If you didn’t know that I was blind, you would think I am sighted.

(FYI: Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) is a degenerative disorder of the retina. In case you’re a little rusty with your eye anatomy, the retina is the light-gathering tissue inside the eye that acts like the film in a camera. PRA leads to degeneration of the retinal photo receptors (the cells in the retina reactive to light). In cats, PRA can be either inherited or acquired)

IMG_9360

KM:  Wow! That must have been quite an adjustment for you! What would you like to say to the humans who have kitties with PRA?

B: Once a home is made safe for a PRA blind cat (i.e no unsupervised roaming outside and if the property is not enclosed etc) there is very little that is needed to keep a blind cat happy.

KM: That’s great. With a little planning, I think that more people will be prepared to open their homes to a cat with some special needs. What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

B: I have two dog brothers. They are my best friends. I call them my guide dogs. And birds, if I catch one (and I do – even without sight) I … will .. (sorry birdies!) … I eat them.

KM: You….. EAT…. the birdies ?? (falls off the chair!) …. Oh I’m so sorry, I don’t know what gotten into me there…. (clears throat!) … If you could make one wish, what would it be?

B: To have on demand laps 24/7. I love lap time.

KM: Do you have any special skills?

B: Yes, I enjoy walking on the washing line. I started the balancing act when I was still a sighted cat. Mauwie has to help me down.

KM: That is amazing! It takes a lot of skill to walk on a line! You are indeed very talented! What do you value most in life?

B: Sunny days.

KM:  I love sunny days too!! It’s my favourite kind of day! Considering the political climate today, wow do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

B: No comments – I am not into politics.

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

B: Mauwie is my social media secretary and she says there are not enough hours in the day to be 100% involved with my account. It is a pity because I know if she was better at time management, she could be more involved. Humons!

KM: Tell me about it! I tell my Mama to keep up with IG, especially now that she is not working. I mean, why bother looking for work when she can spend all her time with me right? Do you have a special someone in your life?

B: My special someone is my family – My purrents. My Pauwie is very calm and he speaks to me in a gentle voice but when he says “off the table” I listen because he has that tone in his voice. Mauwie is a pushover. When I yell, she comes running! She picks me up, gives me treats and belly rubs. She changes my litter tray, feeds me and walks me. She is my slave.

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

B: Date! Me! Pass … I am a bachelor boy …

KM: Oh Bizzy! Any girl would be lucky to date you! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

B: A million people to be PRA aware.

IMG_6462

KM: What message would you like to share with those kitties living with any health issues?

B: If finances allow it, get pet medical insurance to help with big medical expenses.

KM: Yes definitely. Pet insurance is so important! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

B: Thank you very much Kitty Mojito and Crazy Cat Lady Corner for this interview. It’s interviews like this that helps me spread PRA awareness with more cat (pet) owners.

PRA cats are born with sight but they go blind before the age of 5. Keep watch when you get a kitten and if you see your kitten bumping into the wall or anxious to climb down from places not that high, take your kitten to the vet for a check up. A blind cat can be happy with just a little extra care. During his first few months, help him adjust to his blindness. When I was diagnosed, Mauwie said some folk asked her if she was going “to put me down” – to be kind to me. Thank catness ! Mauwie said “No way! My Bizzy will see with no sight because he is a fantastic cat”

There is a feature about me in the Purrington Post blog – under their Inspiring Stories called-: A brave kitty called Bizzy.

IMG_6511

KM: Bizzy, you certainly are a fantastic cat!  Thank you so much for taking time to chat with me. I am very happy to be able to provide you this platform so that you can spread your message about PRA. I hope everyone who reading this will take time to learn more about PRA and how to help kitties living with it.
