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!

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!

Kitty Turns 5!

While April 1st is known for ‘April Fools Day’, it is also known as Kitty Mojito’s birthday!Yes, it is a big deal and this year, since we are not in our home to celebrate it as we do every year, Kitty had a great birthday up on the 28th floor of a downtown highrise!

Turning 5 in cat years in equivalent to around 34ish in human years. So I made an extra special banner, set out some party leis, got some cat wine (yes! there is such a thing!) and make a small cake with her canned food topped with her favourite freeze dried shrimp!

 

Here is Kitty checking out the décor and cake

The cake was simple and super easy!

And what’s a party without some wine! These lovely bottles are a creation by Pet Winery.

After a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ and hugs and kisses all around, Kitty dug into the yummy goodies.

 

And finally, the birthday girl decided to pose… Here she is wearing a lovely bandanna that was gifted to her by her best friends in Utah, Bonnie and Clyde. She also decided to try on the party leis!

The festivities didn’t end here. Her Instagram buddies flooded her with birthday wishes and we had a weekend long party on Instagram with her good buddies Timmy and Jimmy who threw a fabulous party. Check out the hashtag #timmyandjimmyandkittymojitoaprilfoolsbirthdaypawty

What did you wish for on your birthday, Kitty?
I wished to be a full time meowdel, Mama

That’s a great wish, Kitty! I will see what I can do to make that wish come true for you
Thanks Mama, do you really think I can be as famous as Nala and Grumpy cat?

Of course, Kitty. You are the sweetest kitty ever and everyone loves you already
Yes, I am very loveable aren’t I? Now can I get some extra shrimpies with dinner 😉 ?

Change Is Good…… Maybe?

As you know, we had some water damage to our condo earlier this year… While the restoration was done, the renovations were yet to begin…

Well as of last week, it finally got started…. What does this mean? It means that we will have a renovated place to go back to but in the meantime we have to leave home in order for them to get to work.

So last Friday, we packed up the car with some necessities and moved into a temporary apartment for a month or so. That sounds good right? Yes, it does… but what you don’t know yet is that this apartment is on the 28th floor! For someone who is terrified of heights, it’s not exactly ideal! But it is a beautiful place and the views are amazing….

Kitty on the other hand took to the new place with ease. Although she is not too fond of change and new places, she relaxes as long as we are around. Her safety net is us.

So she spent the first day exploring, climbing up on to cupboards, sniffing in every nook and cranny…. We got her a small collapsible cat condo and set it up on a side table by the floor to ceiling windows and she spends lots of time looking out and napping.

I suppose the purpose of this post is to remind myself that change is good. Sometimes the circumstance from which this change manifests may not be ideal, but every experience that we go though teaches us something, no matter how small a lesson it may be. For me, this taught me that I can live on less. I have the basics with me right now and I don’t miss anything else we left at home. It has given me a resolve to live more simply and not put much value on to material things.

CrazyCatLadyCorner Tee Pawty

I have some exciting new to share!

I have started a new campaign through Teespring to help raise some funds to get cats out of high kill shelters! Part of the proceeds from this campaign will also be donated towards @landosolofund whom I have gotten to know through Instagram. They work tirelessly to save cats from high kill shelters and spends many many hours transporting cats to various fosters. The money raised would help them towards the purchase of a cargo van, which will be crucial in transporting more cats to where they need to go. The cargo van can hold up to 9 carriers whereas their current car only holds a maximum of 3.

So this new campaign is all about t-shirts! There are many styles and colours available

The link to order www.teespring.com/crazycatladycorner-tee-pawty

Here are some of the items you can purchase!

What do you guys think? I really love the tank top and I think it would be a great addition to your wardrobe especially for summer! Add the tote bag to your repetoire and you are beach ready!
