The Unpredictable Thing Called Life!

I have finally managed to steer Kitty away from ‘Katdid Konversations’ for a moment in order to write my own blog post!

I must say she is having so much fun hosting and interviewing so many wonderful cats all over the world!

For today, I wanted to share with you all a few things that has been on my mind lately. First is the loss of my job. Anytime you lose your way to financial stability, you instantly get nervous and anxious. And this is how I feel right now. To be honest, I never really liked my job but it was good money. Now there is NO money which is really scary. And not being able to contribute towards household expenses is not a good feeling.

Anyway, the positive side of being unemployed is that now I can spend more time on my creative activities like running my Etsy store! It also has given me a new found desire to build my little business! There is nothing more gratifying than working for yourself…

So in order to fulfill the dream of running my business as a full time occupation, I have upped my advertising and have begun experimenting with new product ideas…. I love the creativity aspect! I can come up with some wackadoodle ideas and sometimes they work! The scariest part of having a creative business is the uncertainty of where your next sale will come from. A sale = income = how I pay my bills………

For now, I am hoping for the best and working towards building my dream of being my own boss a reality. It is a slow and tedious journey but I believe that it can be done 🙂

If you are reading this, go check out my Etsy store Crazy Cat Lady Corner and get a few goodies for yourself and your kitty! 🙂 If you already have some of my products, please share about them with your friends! It will be of great help to me 🙂

Katdid Konversation With Augustus

Good morning everypawdy!

Welcome to another edition of your favourite talk show ‘Katdid Konversations’

I am your host, Kitty Mojito

Today we are chatting with Augustus, a stylish stud from Montrose, Colorado!

He is 8 months old and is quite a fashion forward dude!

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.

Gus1

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.

gus4

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.

gus3

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!

Katdid Konversation With Salem

 

Welcome to another week of ‘Katdid Konversations’

I am your host, Kitty Mojito

Today we are talking with handsome Brit, Salem who will be turning 2 next month!

 20170409_120825

 

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.

20170101_095336

KM: What kind of food do you like?

S: CHICKEN!! Its my favourite. But I’d eat anything… including bugs and rabbit poo.

KM: How would you describe your sense of style?

S: Naturally, purrfectly handsome

20170308_130158

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

S: I love my bunny friend. He is called Bugsy. We sleep together sometimes. Sometimes I chase him and sometimes he chases me. I like other kitty cats too! I want to be friends but some of them hiss and hit me and I run away! I hate dogs!!! I make them scared of me grrr!

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: So Salem, you do a lot of fun stuff so I am thinking that you must have many special skills! Tell me about them.

S: I am very floppy. If I get picked up, I flop.

KM: Oh that is so cute! What is most important to you now?

S: Having fun!!! Because fun is fun!

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

S: I am too young! I’m only 2… I don’t know lol meow

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

S: I LOVE the IG cat community. They helped my meowmy pay for some expensive medical treatment for me. I also love sending and receiving gifts and letters from my furr friends all over the world.

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?

S: I want to spread the word on how black cats aren’t bad luck or cursed. We are amazing kitties with so much love.

 

KM: Most definitely! All kitties deserve to be safe, happy and loved! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

S: Purrlease give me a follow! I love new furrriends!

Katdid Konversation With Orson

Today we are chatting with the sauve and stylish Orson! This handsome hunk hails from Berkeley, California and currently lives in Oakland!

This is Katdid Konversations and I am your host, Kitty Mojito

orson2

 

KM: Orson, it is so great to have you here today! Let’s talk about how things started for you. How did you come to find your human? 

O: I was brought to the shelter in Berkeley as a stray. As if! I was not a stray, I just hadn’t picked out a human yet and was walking to get a slice of pizza and more tobacco for my pipe when I was rudely interrupted. Anyway, my human’s friend volunteers at the Berkeley shelter. She posted pictures of me on Facebook and my human was smitten with my stunningly handsome looks. The human and I officially met after I was transferred to the East Bay SPCA. She came to visit me but didn’t take me home, as she had an older kitty at home who wasn’t keen on a roommate. I was adopted by people who I can describe only as utter nut jobs since they returned me to the shelter because I have allergies, and therefore, some skin issues. Anyhow, the human’s kitty had passed away in the meantime. She caught wind of my return and snatched me up as her foster kitty. We all knew that was a ruse though. She had no intentions of merely fostering me. I came home with her on July 28, 2016 and here I shall stay.

KM: Wow! What a wonderful story that was! It sounds to me like you and your human were just meant to be! Can you describe a day in your life?

O: I start my day by waking the human with a variety of techniques including, but not limited to: face taps, toe nibbling, butt slaps and elbow licking. After the human arises from the bed like a swamp monster having a bad hair day, I dine on my breakfast. After breakfast, I often nap on the couch. If it’s a workday, I’ll leave the human alone until I’m hungry for my lunch, at which point I will start jumping on her back while she sits in her office chair. This is particularly rewarding when she’s on a video conference call. After my lunch, I’ll play with my toys, watch some birds from the window and nap about 28 times until dinner. After dinner, I prefer to lounge and watch TV on the human’s lap with one of my favorite blankies.

orson1

KM: So if your human returns home from a very long day of running errands, how do you greet her?

O: I greet her when she opens the door and then I demand food while making threats about calling the authorities because my lunch is late.

KM: You have an awesome sense of humour! LOL What kind of food do you like?

O: All kinds, although I’m on an allergy diet. I eat a rabbit and pea based kibble. I steal whatever I can get, however. I scored some mac and cheese the other day. I even like dog food!

KM: What is your favourite toy, Orson?

O: Probably my Kong feathered catnip balls.

KM: So you are seen wearing some very cool outfits! How would you describe your sense of style?

O: Smooth. I’m a clothes horse, as they say. I have about 8 bow ties, several shirts and even an argyle sweater.

KM: You sure do have a great style sense, Orson! What are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

O: I like them. I was in the “cat sanctuary” at the shelter, which means I hung with other kitties in a dorm room. I especially like other critters when they come with food that I can steal.

orson3

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

O: For my allergies and skin issues to go away.

KM: I think I know the answer to this question because you are so cool but I will ask anyway! 🙂 Do you have any special skills?

O: Yes, I’m a champion car-rider, an accomplished wine taster, I come when called and take my medicine like a pro.

KM: That’s aweseome! What things are most important to you now? 

O: My humom. She makes me feel secure. I’m pretty cool in different situations because I know she’s there and will protect me. Also, my blanket collection, toys, favorite box and cat scratchers.

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

O: I’m positive felines could only raise the bar in this political climate. We definitely need fair representation. Tunatinis for all cat-kind!

orson4

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

O: I’ve adored my Instagram experience! I’ve made so many friends all over the world. It’s amazing. I love the support and kindness I experience and witness in the COI community. The only negative about IG would have to be the algorithm. Mark Zuckerberg thinks he knows what I want to see and I miss some of my friends’ updates as a result. I wish IG’s feed was chronological.

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

O: Well, my girlfriend is Rosie of @rosiemal. She lives in Brooklyn and is boooootiful. We go to a lot of Instagram pawties together.

KM: Rosie is a sweetheart! You two make a lovely couple! What is your dream date?

O: Tunatinis, a bird feeder to watch, a pizza to eat and my Rosie.

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

O: I’d like to have a boo boo free spell that lasts longer than two months.

KM: I wish that for you too buddy!! Do you have anything else you would like to say?

O: Thank you for the interview! I love all my Instagram buddies! And, my favorite word is SNACKS!

Orson, it was such a treat getting to know you! I wish you all the best in your future! Let’s catch up again at an IG pawty!

Katdid Konversation With Ellie & Pippa

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.

  ellie and pippa

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.

Pippa

Pippa

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!

Ellie

Ellie

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.

Pippa2

Pippa

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.

Ellie2

Ellie

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!

Katdid Konversation With Rocket

Today we are chatting with the charismatic Rocket in this new edition of ‘Katdid Konversations’

I am your host, Kitty Mojito!

20170429_143812

Rocket Richard Rapson will be turning 15 years old on June 1! He lives just outside of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Here is a fun fact! Rocket was actually named after the Great Canadian hockey player, Maurice “Rocket” Richard.

KM: Thanks for joining me today, Rocket! Let’s start by talking about how you found your human?

R: I was a feral farm kitten in Smithville, Ontario and a lady my mom knows gave me to her and the rest is history. I was born in 2002.

KM: Describe a day in your life.

R: I need to have my breakfast by 6.30am sharp and my morning Insulin needle. I have a tight napping schedule I try to keep. Then I sleep all day. I’m happy when mom comes home from work because we play and then I nap more. She sometimes lets me meowdel yarn or knitting. I love to bother her when she reads. I have my evening Insulin needle and some treats at about 7pm and then we just hang out until bedtime. I do have a problem with getting the zoomies in the middle of the night and skidding all over the hardwood floors. Sometimes I’m so loud my Poppy gets up and takes my toys until the morning. I guess he doesn’t like me playing under his bed in the middle of the night.  We live with mom’s parents at the moment. Mom is trying to find a condo for us to buy.

KM: You have a busy schedule to keep up with! So if your human returns home after a very long day of running errands, how do you greet her?

R: Depends on my mood. sometimes I sit and greet her at the door, sometimes I make her hunt for me.

KM: What kind of food do you like?

R: Friskies Salmon Pate, Crunchies, Lickem sticks and Greenies.  I’m not really into human food because I need to watch my sugars but OMG have you ever tried yogurt?  I could bathe in that stuff. Peach is my fave.

KM: I’ve never tried yogurt! It sounds delicious! Do you have a favourite toy?

R: Fluffballs with tinfoil

KM: I know you enjoy wearing bandannas and you look great in them! How would you describe your sense of style?

R: Kooky but laid back.  I love meowdeling yarn, nice soft yarn. When you’re tired, you can use it as a pillow.

KM: You have given me something to think about! I must get Mama to buy me yarn! Sounds like so much fun! Tell me Rocket, what are your thoughts on dogs and other animals?

R: When mom was married a long time ago, her husband had a dog. We got along ok. Now when I know a dog is around, I just hide. I don’t like it when they chase me.  I mostly get along with other cats. Birds are fun to watch.

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

R: That I live for a long time.

KM: I wish that too! So we can be with our mommies forever! Do you have any special skills, Rocket?

R: I am very stealthy. I like to slink around. I’m also good at getting yogurt cups stuck on my face. I love playing hide and seek, I excel at the hiding part. I can fall asleep while hiding!

IMG_20170429_110313_777

KM: Whoa! So many interesting skills! That’s awesome. So let’s get a bit serious. What do you value most in life?

R: Right now, getting my insulin is important to me because it keeps me alive. Also spreading the awareness of special needs cats is very important to me. People were mean to my mom when they found out I was diabetic. They said I shouldn’t suffer and had best be put down. Mom would never do that. I have been diabetic since Easter of 2013 and have never had any issues. I have been very lucky. Mom takes great care of me.

KM: Yes, I see your mom loves you very much! Do you follow politics, Rocket? Do you think we need fair representation in office?

R: Kitty Mojito for President! Or in our case (because we are both Canadian kitties) Kitty Mojito for Prime Minister!!

KM: Ha Ha! You are so sweet! Do you think I will have a chance against Mr. Trudeau? LOL. Anyway, let’s talk about Instagram and other social media. We became furriends on IG. What do you like/ don’t like about social media?

R: I like social media because I’m kind of a shy guy.  There are a lot of cats I have made friends with from all over the world.  It’s making me less shy.

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

R: I’ve never had a girlfriend. There are lots of pretty ladies on IG though. A couple have caught my eye.

KM: Ooohh, I think you should go ahead and talk to those pretty ladies! What is your dream date?

R: Something fun.  A fall fair, ice skating or some tunatinis on the catio. Share some yoghurt or fish tacos.

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

R: Letting more people pet me. Usually only mom, her niece and 2 nephews can pet me. I did let her brother pet me the other day. That’s only happened twice in 15 years.

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

R: I would really love to learn how to Meow. Mom said they forgot to give me a meower when I was born. Do you know anyone that gives lessons?  I’ve got Skype.

KM: I’m sure we can get you meowing in no time! Thank you so much for chatting with me Rocket! We all loved getting to know more about you!
