Katdid Konversation with Tazz

Happy Sunday everypawdy!

Welcome to another great edition of Katdid Konversations!

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

Today I am chatting with Tazz, an 8 year old handsome hunk from Baton, North Carolina

20170513_164818

KM: Thanks so much for joining me today Tazz. First, I would like to welcome you to the COI family! It is so exciting that you have now found your forever home! So let’s talk about how you came to find your human?  

T: My previous person asked Meowmee to take care of me while she recovered from an accident. Then she decided I was happier with Meowmee and let me stay.

KM: Wow, that’s so great that you got to stay! I am thrilled for you. Describe a day in your life. 
T: Well, I wake up early, about sunrise, stretch a lot, demand my breakfast, take a short nap, have some Temptation treaties, watch birds, bunnies and deer out the window, enjoy the sunshine, sleep, have dinner, play on and off at different times, yowl at 3 am and sleep.
20170718_184253
KM: Ha ha! You have your routine down to a T! Well done! I wish I was that disciplined! What do you REALLY think of your human?

T: My Meowmee is the best, considering she tries very hard to make me happy.  I do like to keep her on her toes about my food though.  A guy gets bored with the same thing.  I would have to say yes, I love her.

KM: Aww, you are so sweet. Your Meowmee is such a kind and wonderful lady! We all love her! What is your most favourite kind of food? 

T: At the moment, I like Call of the Wild salmon and trout flavor as well as the Temptations Catnip Treats.

KM: Good choices! Have you tried Weruva BFF? It is so delicious! If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

T: My Miss Mousey! She has soft fluffy hair and is purrfect to wrestle, bunny kick, bat and carry in my mouth.

KM: How would you describe your sense of style?

T: For style, I am just feeling that I need to just be for now as I am new to IG.  But I would say hip, sophisticated and trendy.

KM: In time, you will develop your own sense of style 🙂 You already look pretty dashing in the pawty circuits! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

T: I haven’t really been around a lot of dogs. I would say they’re OK.  Other cats a definite yes, I want a brofur or 2 and a sisfur.

KM: I think your Meowmee will definitely be listening to that request! Fingers crossed for you my furriend! If you could make one wish, what would it be?

T: My wish would be to meet all my IG friends for real one day.

KM: Wouldn’t that be just amazing? Now Tazz, do you have any special skills?

T: My ultimate skill is carrying Miss Mousie in my mouth and yowling at the same time.

KM: That’s is quite impressive! What do you value most in life?

T: I would say food, then naps.  But Meowmee is in charge of the food so I guess it would be her, Miss Mousey is a close 2nd.

KM: How do you feel to be part of this new family?

T: I am so happy! I didn’t know how good life could be.

20170701_155626
KM: I think the best feeling in the world is to know that you are loved by wonderful people! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

T: I like meeting new cats and their people, getting to express myself and being creative.

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

T: Yes! Actually, as of this week, Lilly (who is the Sisfur of Cobalt) is my new girlfriend.  She is a beautiful seal point Siamese with the most amazing blue eyes.  She is actually my first ever girlfriend.

IMG_20170720_210158_132
KM: Wow! Congratulations! I don’t know Lilly but I know Cobalt! You two make the most adorable couple! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

T: Well I like to think I am romantic.  I would pick Lilly up and take her to a private dining room. After a delicious dinner, we could dance to beautiful music and spend the evening in each other’s arms.  Of course, I would buy her a beautiful gown, flowers and a blue sapphire necklace to match her eyes.

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

T: I want to see where things go with Lilly. I just joined her band, the PURR TONES, so I will see how that goes. Most importantly, I want to learn all there is to know about Derp Spays.

KM: I think Little Franklin will teach you all about Derp Spays! He is a great leader! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

T: I want to thank everypawdy for being so warm and loving to me on IG.  You are all wonderful Cats and People.  And thank you Miss Kitty for having me as a guest.  Peace Out 💚💜💙💛❤✌🐾🐾

KM: Tazz, it has been such a pleasure getting this chance to talk to you! I look forward to seeing what you accomplish in the future!

Katdid Konversation with Jude

Hi everypawdy! Welcome back to Katdid Konversations! 

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

After a week off to rest, I am back with a great guest!

Please say hello to Jude from Sturgeon, Missouri… a gentleman of many talents!

DSC_0762

KM: Thank you so much for joining me today Jude! Let’s start by learning a bit about how you came to find your human?

J: My hudad rescued me on a rainy Saturday in July. I was living in a old U-haul trailer with my siblings and cat mom, fairly close to my pawents property. Hudad had one of my nieces on the fourwheeler with him. They saw me out in the rain, picked me up, saw that I was sick and took me to what is now, home. They bathed and fed me, then took me to the vet later that week. They say that I was pretty pathetic. Eyes matted with green drainage, shivering, dirty, sick and very hungry.

KM: Oh my! I am so glad they found you when they did! Now that you have found your forever home, describe a day in your life.

J: My fun begins at 3.00 – 3.30am. This is when Misha and I chase each other around the house, down the hallway to the humans’ room and across their beds! At times, even on their heads! After we get bored, Misha usually goes back to sleep in the bedroom closet while I continue to play. I play with my bouncy tail ball or another small ball. I bat it around on my humans’ bed because they enjoy tossing it off the bed and then I retrieve it! My hudad’s alarm goes off at 6.30am. This is my signal to go snuggle with him until he gets up. Then I wait in the bathroom sink while he showers. I help him shave and entertain him while he gets dressed. He gives us treats before he heads off to work. When meowmy wakes up, the fun starts all over. She takes me out on an early walk. It will be a long walk at our favourite park or a short walk on our property. After we return home, I take a break and nap for a few hours. We play several times a day. When hudad gets home, we play with him while meowmy cooks. It’s treat time before the humans go to bed. All four of us play before they sleep. Misha gets comfy on hudad’s pillow while I get comfy on meowmy’s legs. Lights out!

IMG_20160929_175104

KM: What do you REALLY think of your humans?

J: They’re great! Best servants ever. However, if I had to point out their flaws, they would be:

* Meowmy needs to pay more attention to my social life. Lately she’s been preoccupied by minis, causing me to miss out on pawties and other fun stuff.

* Not enough outdoor time.

Other than that, it’s all good

KM: Oh I’m sure your meowmy will take note of those things. We have to keep them on their toes constantly don’t we? If not, nothing will get done!! What is your most favourite kind of food?

J: YOGURT! I absolutely love plain, low fat Greek yogurt. I get a little everyday when meowmy makes her smoothies.

KM: You know something… I have never tried this ‘yooogurt’ you speak of. I must tell Mama to buy some immediately.  If you had to choose one toy to play with, what would that be?

J: BOUNCYTAILS!

received_10213206698832919

KM: Excellent choice! Thanks to you and your meowmy, I got to play with bouncy tails too!! It is sooo much fun! Now you are known to be quite a stylish dude. How would you describe your sense of style?

J: Hmm… Hip and casual. I dig my shades, a nice bowtie or a cool bandana when I’m out and about hiking.

KM: Oh yes! You sure look cool in those accessories you wear! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

J: Dogs hmm, well, I’ve been around a couple and they were completely opposite of each other. One was hyper and the other didn’t even care that I was around – pretty nice.  I liked her.

I would say every species has a unique quality about them. Different in appearances, thoughts and personality but all have a need to be loved.

KM: That’s deep dude… You are an old soul trapped in a young body! If you could make one wish, what would it be?

J: PEACE!

KM: Do you have any special skills?

J: I am a great alarm clock.  I can catch, fetch, bat a ball back to my human and have a need to protect my home by securing the purrimeters of our property. That’s a must!  I enjoy protecting my family and furfriends.

20170619_122132

KM: Ah yes! You do take that role very seriously. It is why you hold that super important position in the DerpCabnet! What do you value most in life?

J: Family and friends

KM: You are so sweet Jude! Ok….Considering the political climate today, how do you feel about more cats getting into politics and making the world kinder?

J: I think it’s great! We need more of it. This world would be a better place if we all got together to spread peace, love and tolerance.

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

J: I love meeting cats from all across the globe and enjoy sharing a tiny part of their life. I think its great to get to know one another and support each other. On the negative side, it’s time. I’d love to have more time to spend on it because I really dig my furfriends.

20170513_115727

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

J: My special someone is a very sweet cat named Forrest (IG:@forrestkitten). I enjoy going out with her when we can❤

KM: How adorable! Forrest is a cutie! If you were to go on a date, what would a perfect day/night look like?

J: Probably a nice walk/ hike. A picnic in a beautiful meadow, then star gaze and chase lightening bugs. It may not be fancy but it’s quality time and that’s what makes it great.

KM: You are a romantic! I bet Forrest will enjoy that very much! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

J: Become the best SSA for Mr. Derpurrez and…well…let’s just say that I have some things in the works in the very near future.

2017-03-09-22-32-15

KM: Ooh I am looking forward to seeing the new projects you have going on!! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

J: I’d like to thank all my furfriends for always being so incredibly ameowzing! They always say the nicest things and I appreciate them all and sincerely care about each of them.

KM: Thank you so much for hanging out with me today, Jude! It’s always so much fun chilling with good furriends! 🙂

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 Stella

Welcome  to another great edition of Katdid Konversations dear friends!

I am your host Kitty Mojito!

Today I am in the company of the beautiful and talented Stella, an almost 4 year old from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada!

20170109_150617

Stella in a “Crazy Cat Lady Corner’ bandana

KM: Stella, I am thrilled that you are joining me today! Shall we start by talking about how you came to find your human?

S: Humom was looking into breeds with dog-like characteristics as Hudad has only had doggos in his life. Hudad always enjoyed watching videos of Maru. So when the time was right, they got me!

KM: Can you describe a day in your life?

S: I jump on the bed bright and early to wake up Hudad! I will lounge on him until he gets up. I eat my breakfast and watch the morning bird activity at the feeders. When Meowmy wakes up, I greet her and immediately expect to be let outside on my catio. Usually I have to wait for her to make her coffee and wake up a bit. Depending on her schedule, we sit outside on the catio for some time together. If she has to work, we play inside with my favorite feather wand toy before she gets ready.

During the day, I nap in my igloo until the humans come home. I eat my  dinner promptly at 6.30pm! When Meowmy is cooking, I can be found watching her in the kitchen, begging for food. At night, I chill out with my pawrents while they watch TV, Netflix or play video games. When it’s time for bed, I am always called up to join them but I decline. But several minutes later, I sing them the song of my people, trying to get one of them (usually Meowmy) to pay some attention to me one last time.

2017-05-10-18-29-46

KM: Your day sounds a lot like mine! I love to sing the song of our people too! It’s a great song!! LOL! So when your pawrents return home from a very long day of running errands, how do you greet them?

S: Whereever I have been napping, I always hear my pawrents’ cars. When they open the door, they can find me sitting directly in front of it waiting for them! I will hang around them and give them head butts and purrs.

KM: That’s a very sweet welcome! Stella, what kind of food do you like?

S: I love my BFF brand wet food by Weruva! There are so many different flavor combinations. My personal 2 favs are tuna & pumpkin and tuna & shrimp. For dry food, pawrents feed me Hills Science Diet Oral Care.

For human food, I LOVE shrimp and tuna fish from the can! I also like vanilla yogurt and cream cheese. On the very rare time Hudad gets KFC, I go crazy and beg for some of it!

KM: Oh wow, I love BFF too! And KFC! Have you tried the ‘Cats in the kitchen’ line from Weruva? It’s great! ‘Lamb Burgini’ is one of my favs! You must try it! What is your favourite toy?

S: I love my Karin SF kicker and feather wand toy. But there is one toy that forever has my heart. When my pawrents picked me up, I had this little blue ball with me. I always play with it! I also carry it around the house with me and leave it by the door when the pawrents go to work.

 

KM: Aww, how adorable! Now I know you have a pretty fabulous wardrobe. How would you describe your sense of style?

S: I am always oh so stylish in my Crazy Cat Lady Corner bandanas, Neemie Bows, Cat in Berlin and Furry and Fancy bowties and bandanas. I love floral prints and sparkles! To Meowmy’s dismay, I am not a fan of hats or wearing clothes.

KM: I think my mama will be very happy to hear that you love Crazy Cat Lady Corner bandanas! You sure wear them very well! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

S: I am an only child kind of cat! I am curious about other cats and dogs in our neighborhood but I get quite nervous when they get close.

IMG_20170521_123623_043

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

S: For there to be more pet friendly women shelters. Not wanting to leave behind pets and not being able to take them along can be a major reason for not leaving an unsafe and abusive situation.

KM: For sure! That is something that every city needs. Do you have any special skills?

S: Hunting/catching/eating flies.

KM: Very impressive. The only time I see flies is if I’m sitting out on the patio at night! What things are most important to you?

S: I love quality time with my pawrents. Meowmy’s new job doesn’t give her a lot of hours at the moment so having more quality time and company at home during the week days is wonderful. Yes, I would normally just spend my time napping while they work but having a human around more often to play, pet me, let me out on the catio and chill out with me is the best!

IMG_20170428_123017_858

KM: How do you feel about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?

S: Well,  Meowmy being an American talks about the going ons in the US with their orange President. I honestly could think of a few other naturally orange cats who could do a better job…ummm.. @punybear, Malcom of @the_furry_collective, Thomas of @3gingerfurbabies, @winksmeow or even Toothless Tigger of @holyhoneybucket! Maybe the world would be a little bit kinder and appreciate and enjoy the simpler things in life like sunbeams on the carpet, ribbons and twist ties.

KM: Oh those are some excellent candidates to replace the …um… orange person you talk about….. I think they will do a much better job in making the world a bit more kinder! Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

S: I love seeing how bonds have formed between cats furriends and human friends alike. The amazingly caring Cats Of Instagram community show support for other cats and their humans during hard times of sickness or loss, follower milestones or birthday pawty celebrations. There are many philanthropic cats and humans who shed light on special needs cats, charities, organizations, fostering or injustices such as @mycatkyle @kittenxlady @eddie_the_lilac_lion or @yellowhatsforcats.

Social media can be frustrating at times too though. Hearing about pictures being stolen by other users, accounts being hacked or lost is not uncommon and it is unfair. And don’t get me started on Instagram’s whole algorithm business!

But despite that, the internet and social media platforms are a fascinating place to meet furriends from around the world.

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

S: Around Valentines Day, my furriend @lola_theexotic_showgirl set me up on a blind date with @iamliquidcat and it was love at first sight! He is a three year old, lilac colored British Shorthair. He lives in Paris with his humans. He is just so handsome and is just a darling. I call him my beau. Not many humans and cats know his real name and his secret is safe with me!

KM: Why Stella, I didn’t know you had a beau!!! That’s pawsome! I hope we get to meet this elusive hunk sometime soon! What is your dream date?

S: Mine and @iamliquidcat’s first date was so pawesome! It was in Sydney, Australia. We had a beautiful picnic lunch in Hyde Park, went to the aquarium and then to Luna Park and went on loads of fun rides! It was a dream come true!

IMG_20170531_100935_529

KM: That sounds like a wonderful date! What would you like to accomplish in the near future?

S: The humans are taking me with them on their 2 week vacation to Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina. I hope to have a safe and stress free 15 hour car ride. Wish me luck! It will be an accomplishment for sure if I get through it.

KM: I wish you luck sister! I am not a fan of the car but Mama keeps saying she wants to take me on a cross Canada trip! Right! Like that’s going to happen! Anyway, do you have anything else you would like to say?

S: I love my followers on Instagram! I have met so many furriends who each have a special place in my heart. They are all so beautiful and handsome and have the most kind, caring and generous humans who share their stories.

KM: Thanks so much for chatting with me Stella! You are such a joy to talk to! Let’s catch up at the next pawty!

Katdid Konversation With Sugar

Another great edition of Katdid Konversations is ready to kick off!

Today I have with me the most adorable Sugar, a 6 month old kitty from Ogden!

IMG_4441

KM: Welcome to the show Sugar! I am delighted to have you here with me today. Tell us, how did you come to find your human?

S: I thought I had a forever home, but it was not so. I was kept in a room by myself, I ate by myself when they remembered to feed me and finally they surrendered me to the local shelter where I was put up for adoption. I saw my mama walk by and started meowing. She smelled so sweet and was so kind. She played with me and then walked away! I was sad! Then she came back…. she called the lady and said she wanted me out of there and in her home by Wednesday.

KM: That’s wonderful! Now that you are in your home, what does a typical day in your life look like?

S: I have two drool beasts, Gunner and Archer – but they are very kind and polite.  My fur brother and sister, Clyde Barrow and Bonnie are great too! We all run meowing to mama. If Cat Daddy is home, he calls me baby kitty, picks me up and he carries me around in his arms. He pulls a chair close to the counter and gives me a tablespoon of tuna.  Then we start to play. Bonnie and I run up and down the stairs, in and out of rooms. Then we nap for hours and do this over again.  Mama spends several hours just playing with us and grooming us. She loves the three of us. I love when she picks me up, cuddles me close and calls me her little Sugar Princess.

KM: What a terrific family you have, Sugar! So when your Mama or Cat Daddy comes home from a very long day of running errands, how do you greet them?

S: I come running out meowing and sitting up so that they will pick me up.

KM: What kind of food do you like?

S: I like tuna, Sheba fillets,fresh water from the fountain and Sheba stix.

KM: I am going to guess that you love playing with many toys! Which one is your favourite?

S: I love my cat nip banana (my tummy never tickled so much!)! My stick with crinkly balls, bells and feathers.  Oh and my butterfly!

KM: I love the catnip banana too! I call in the iBanana! How would you describe your sense of style?

S: I am a mini princess. Mama is helping me choose my first summer outfits.

KM: I’m looking forward to seeing you in your summer attire! I’m sure you will look fabulous! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

S: I’m ok with Gunner and Archer but no other.

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

S: That all the kitties that need homes find homes.I didn’t know how unhappy I was until Mama moved me to her house. She gave me space but made it clear I was loved.

KM: Do you have any special skills?

S: I am very fast and I can jump high! Very high!

KM: Whoa! You must get mama to take a video of you doing your high jumps! What things are most important to you now?

S: My Mama, Cat Daddy, Bonnie & Clyde. I also love my beautiful pink collar with a bow and purple name plate “Sugar”.

IMG_4436

KM: Sugar, what do you think about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?

S: I think we need more cats coming together and letting their voices be heard. It’s good to have role models but we all must use our meow.

KM: I totally agree with you! We must all stick together! Now Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/don’t like about social media?

S: I haven’t had to much exposure yet but mama and Bonnie and Clyde say they have met some wonderful friends, had their hearts broken and their faith restored.  I look forward to meeting everyone!

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

S: My mama and Cat Daddy

KM: Thanks for joining me today Gus! Let’s start by chatting a bit about your history. Tell me about how you found your human.

A:  At only five months old, my identical twin brother and I were abandoned at our local animal shelter by abusive and careless humans. We were underfed and as anxious as ever, but the people at the shelter were kind and offered us lots of love. For three weeks, we sat in separate cages, subject to the meows and screams of other kitties in the same situation. Strangers visited daily, always cooing at us and jabbing their fingers through the wires. Not once did any of these visitors take me out of my cage like they did with everyone else. The only pets and cuddles I received were from the animal shelter’s staff. They tried so hard to make me feel comfortable, but I always curled up in the back of my cage, hiding behind a sea of blankets and my litter box. One day, January 29th as I’m told, two humans came to my rescue. Both of them remained calm as they examined me. There were no unwanted fingers poking at me, but instead a click of the cage door being open. I decided to arise from the shadows and cautiously stepped towards them. Patiently, they allowed me to sniff their fingers, before one of them gently picked me up. She spoke softly, “He’s perfect. We have to adopt him.” And that was it. In less than thirty minutes I was walking on unknown carpet in an unfamiliar apartment, exploring the possibilities. This was home.

KM: That is such a wonderful story! I am so glad you found them! Now that you found your forever home, describe what a typical day in your life looks like.

A:  Most of my days start at 4:00 am, awoken by one of my humans mysteriously disappearing to this place called “work”. My eyes are always cloudy with sleep, disgruntled and disturbed by the early morning excitement. Mom doesn’t get out of bed despite my efforts to convince her otherwise. I strut around the living room chirping and meowing to get her attention, not because I’m hungry, but because I want to show her things; I want her to watch the sunrise with me. My tactics only become more intense once I realize she’s not getting up. I race from room to room, gripping the carpet and crashing into everything. Suddenly she’s awake, scrambling to grab me and take me back to bed. We snuggle up under the covers and I receive pets and scratches causing a series of purrs. Eventually she falls asleep and my eyes grow heavy. She wins…this time. By 9:00 am I’m practicing my shenanigans again, bringing all my favorite toys to the bed and attacking them vigorously. Two or three human sighs later I’m at last fed. Dry food, grain free salmon, my all time favorite, and a healthy dose of fresh water. After breakfast is the morning poop, timed perfectly to correspond with my human’s shower so that I stink up the bathroom, encouraging her to hurry it along. I lie on her pile of new clothes, keeping them warm for when she gets out. Next stop: lounging on the couch, and enjoying some lovely head scratches while we watch tv. At noon, Dad is home and psyched to see us. I no longer need to protect Mom, leaving my morning duties to do my daily bird watching. The windowsill is warm with sunlight and there’s always something new to see outside. Within the next hour I chirp and chatter at birds, before a bandana is slung over my head and a harness is buckled across my chest. The three of us head outside and it’s time to explore the grasses. I sniff a few dandelions and munch on some leaves. Without hesitation, I claw my way up my favorite tree and plop down to observe my surroundings. I do my best to model while Mom snaps some pictures, then we stroll around the block, avoiding the kitties who don’t like me too much. Back at home, we settle on a movie and while my humans are preoccupied with this entertainment, I stir up some trouble. I hop on the bar and shove foreign objects off. Everything belongs on the floor, including me since I have this condition called “litter box feet”. I leap down, grabbing my contraband and scurrying to the bathroom. Once there, I hide my stash under the rug, and flee, hoping no one has noticed my absence. I busy the humans by hunting my toys, wiggling my booty and pouncing on the unsuspecting victims. After a while of this, I’m pooped and ready for an afternoon nap. Hours later I’m awoken by the feeling of hunger. Dinner time! It’s always wet food and always a surprise, never chicken but always a fishy choice. Gobbling down each and every morsel, I lick my bowl clean. Then it’s on to washing my face, paws and butt. Back in the window, next the box, another nap, a tumble with my sheep, and all of a sudden this thing called “bedtime” occurs. Bedtime for me means a chance at playing on the counters, booping the plants and attempting to scale the cabinets. When this gets boring , it’s time to attack the litter box and make a huge ruckus, get in the bathtub and pull out drain and scarf down the last of my water. Off to sleep I am, cuddling in between my humans and dozing straight into dream land.

KM: Wow! Your days are full of so many fun times! I can tell that you live every day to the fullest! What kind of food do you like the most?

A: Nutrisca’s Tuna and Crab grain free wet food, Under the Sun’s grain free Salmon dry food, and Merrick’s Rabbit Cuts pouches

KM: What is your favourite toy?

A: My yellow lamb named Blep

KM: You are seen sporting some pretty fine bandannas. How would you describe your sense of style?

A: Trendy with a hint of adventure and spunk

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

A: Dogs shall not be trusted, they bow down to humans and they sniff lots of butts. I’m also not fond of other cats or strangers whether they be humans or not. I love bugs though!

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

A: To help all other animal shelter kitties like me find their forever families.

KM: That’s a very noble wish! I wish for the same! So tell me Gus, do you have any special skills?

A: Communication! I constantly communicate with my humans by meowing or chirping when they ask me questions. I also help my humans paint, sew and do puzzles. I’m an expert in booping, escaping harnesses, parkour, and hiding.

KM: So many amazing skills! What things are most important to you now?

A: My humans are beyond important to me. I hate seeing them upset or sick and I always attempt to comfort them and make them feel better. They are my heroes and I love them. Adoption in animal shelters is also very dear to me as I believe every animal deserves a chance at having a family.

KM: That is so true Gus! I wish that everyone will adopt a shelter pet and take care of them forever! How do you feel about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?

A: I never see any kitties in politics! Let’s elect one of our own into office! There is no representation of our kind and we deserve a voice!

KM: Most definitely. You should get in touch with Mr. Derpurrez @little_franklin! He is very active in the political scene! Now Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

A: I love connecting with kitties and their humans through Instagram. I’ve forged tons of new friendships with social media. The downside is that I don’t have enough time to connect with EVERYONE like I’d like to.

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

A:  There’s a little orange kitty that lives in the apartment right above us! I always see her in the window when we’re out on walks. She is very beautiful! We’re a thing, she just doesn’t know it yet!

KM: That is so cute! I hope we get to hear more about her soon! What is your dream date?

A: Sprawling out in the grass, dining on fine tuna and drinking the purest of water whilst planning the future.

KM: Oh My! Aren’t you a romantic? 🙂 So what would you like to accomplish in the near future?

A:  I’d love to raise awareness on the benefits of adopting even more and aide in finding homes for the strays out there. If anything I’d love to make more new friends and create more bonds.

KM: Gus, thank you so much for joining me today. You are such a unique and wonderful kitty and I wish you all the very best!

KM: Thanks for joining me, Salem! Let’s start by how you came to find your human? 

S: My meowmy went to a rescue to see kitty cats and I was so flat and squished into my bed, she didn’t even see me! I’m super glad the worker pointed me out to her because I love my meowmy and she loves me

KM: Describe a day in your life.

S: Ok here goes……

1. Wake meowmy up by twanging her bobbles on the door handle.

2. Meow and purr in her face uncontrollably.

3. Wait for meowmy to get ready and I follow her downstairs

4. Meowmy puts my collar on and puts my breakfast out and opens the back door.

5. I skip breakfast and go outside to hunt and play.

6. I come back home just after midday to eat my breakfast. I have a nap on meowmy’s knee and then I follow her to and from the shop.

7. I get home with meowmy and have another sleep.

8. I then go back out again and don’t come home until 8pm!

9. Meowmy shouts me in and I have my tea followed by a grooming session.

10. Next, I have a crazy hour! I run around and play with things I shouldn’t, like pens and important pieces of paper.

11. Around 10 or 11pm, I go upstairs and get into bed with meowmy. I curl up next to her belly. But in the middle of the night, I get too hot and I move and lay on her feet.

KM: Wow, your days are just full of fun and excitement! Salem, when your human returns home from a very long day of running errands,  how do you greet her?

S: I would be sitting in the rabbit’s cage with the rabbit waiting for her. I let out a little purr/chirp and rub against her legs. Or I’m just out having fun, no where to be seen.

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

S: I would wish that my meowmy never had to brush my long, fluffy fur

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

S: My special someone would be my meowmy! She rescued me and gave me a second chance in life so I’m furrrever grateful

KM: What is your dream date?

S: Eat and sleep

KM: Oh Salem, you are too funny! So what would you like to accomplish in the near future?
