Welcome to another edition of “Katdid Konversations’
I am your host, Kitty Mojito.
Today we are talking to two really great gals from Bristol, Tennessee. Please say hello to Ellie, who is 1 year old and Pippa, who is 7 months. They are also known as the Gray Girls.
KM: Thanks so much for joining me today! So let’s start from the beginning, how did you guys come to find your human?
Ellie: My human adopted me from an animal shelter on June 18, 2016.
Pippa: She adopted me also from an animal shelter on March 16, 2017
KM: Describe a day in your life.
Ellie: A day of mine consists of bird watching, eating, napping, playing with Pippa and napping more.
Pippa: I like to wake mom up early and have a cuddle session, then eat some, nap, play with sister Ellie and nap, nap, nap til the humans come home.
KM: Your human has returned home from a very long day of running errands. How do you greet her?
Ellie: When I hear the key rattle in the door, I run to meet her at the door, usually laying sprawled out on the rug where she has to walk. Then I will give welcome home rubs on her legs.
Pippa: I’m usually napping in the window seat when she gets home and she wakes me up being all noisy. I meow my squeaky quack meow and want to be picked up and want to be majorly loved on for about 5 minutes before I am finished and want food.
KM: What kind of food do you both like?
Ellie: I have expensive taste. I will only eat the “real” wet stuff like tuna or salmon, usually made by Wellness or Applaws. I can’t help it I’m spoiled, my mother made me that way, hehee. But the rest of the time Pippa and I both eat dry food by Blue Wilderness.
Pippa: I LOVE tuna! When I first came home, I didn’t want to eat so I lost a bunch of weight. My grandmeowther got me some super smelly cheap food and I ate it up. But now, I like the good stuff that Ellie eats but I like Friskies too.
KM: Do you have a favourite toy?
Ellie: I really enjoy playing with my catnip banana but the laser pointer is “my precious”.
Pippa: I really like the laser pointer too, but I will play with anything! Especially yarn!
KM: You girls are very beautiful. How would you describe your sense of style?
Ellie: My mom calls me a meowdel, I am a girly cat and I wear clothes sometimes. When Pippa messes up my hair when we play, I get mad at her.
Pippa: My mom says I’m a tomboy. I don’t like wear clothes, I hates it. I am very messy, especially when I eat. I throw food all around. She also says I need to take lessons on how to be a girl from Ellie, ugh.
KM: What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?
Ellie: I have only been up close to one dog, I didn’t like it but I sat real still. Pippa is the only other cat I’ve been around since I left the shelter.
Pippa: I HATE dogs. The one that Ellie saw, I saw too. It came way too close to me so I swiped its nose and cut it. Ellie is the only cat I’ve been around since the shelter also, but I like her. She licks me on the head but she will deny it.
KM: If you could make one wish, what would it be?
E & P: For mom to be able to stay home all day and never have to go to work.
KM: Ellie & Pippa, do you have any special skills?
Ellie: I can jump super high, it always impresses mom how high and far I can leap.
Pippa: I have a very good purring motor. Does that count?
KM: Wow, those are some amazing skills! So, tell me guys, what do you value most in life?
Ellie: I like my heated bed, it’s very special to me. My mom got it for me after I “got fixed”.
Pippa: I think my home is important to me now, cause I didn’t have one before. And my family.
KM: How do you feel about cats in politics? Do you think we need fair representation in office?
E & P: We are not a real political family. My mom votes for whoever she thinks is best so we kind of agree with her. So we would totally vote for a politician cat!! Male or female, we should make our meows heard.
KM: Instagram is a great place to make friends. What do you like/don’t like about social media?
E & P: We have made several good friends on Instagram! I like that part of it and also seeing pictures and videos of other pretty kitties. I don’t like it when there are mean or rude comments posted as a response to a picture or video. We haven’t had that happen to us, but have seen it happen to others. If you don’t like something mom says keep your opinion to yourself.
KM: Do either of you have a special someone in your life?
Neither of us have anyone special but we are both taking applications for suitable gentlemen cats!
KM: I’m sure you will have to fight off the attention of many handsome gentleman cats soon!! What is your dream date?
Ellie: My dream date would be going to a seafood restaurant and ordering a plate of tuna with extra juice, then taking a nap, then go partying for most of the night before crashing to sleep again.
Pippa: My dream date? I’m not in a dating mood right now and would rather just stay home and sleep on mom’s lap while she watches TV or crochets.
KM: What would you like to accomplish in the near future?
Ellie: I would like to be a professional meowdel, I do a really great runway walk!
Pippa: I wish to not be so scared every time I hear a noise I don’t know. Other than that, I think I’m pretty content with the right now.
KM: Do you have anything else you would like to say?
E & P: Thank you for reading about us! “The Gray Girls”
KM: Thank you so much for chatting with me, ladies! It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both!
