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!
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!
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.
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!
