A] Personal Details
“Lucky & Thomas.”
Your 2 Leggeds Names?
“Mom (Jay-lyn) Little One (Tember).”
Are you a specific feline breed or just your ordinary Moggie?
“We are of the Royal Bloodlines of the Oddball Catsvandergarden.”
How old Are You?
“Lucky-I am 11.” “Thomas-I am 4.”
Do you run your household? If yes ….. how?
“Of course we do. When we lay on Mom or the little one they dare not move. All it takes is a whine and our food bowls are refilled. Unless it is Mom she always says ‘Just because you can see the bottom of the bowl does not mean you need to have it recovered.'”
Do you live in the house, or outside or ‘Meh’ “I live where l want!”
“We live indoors.”
Where abouts in the world do you live?
“Steinbach, Manitoba Canada.”
B] Exercise/Play Time/Adventuring
Are you an outdoorsy type of Kat, or exclusively indoor comfortable?
“Oh no,Exclusively Indoor.”
What type of exercise to take part in?
“We chase one another around the house nonstop at times.”
When out and about are you an intrepid explorer and love to go walkabout or do you prefer to stay within your home territory?
“We sit in the window and watch all those large metal monsters and are glad to remain indoors.”
Do your 2 leggeds play with you?
“Lucky-Mom and I have a game where she pushes me away and I keep returning to her lap. I can do that for hours.
“Thomas-When Mom cleans under the oven and finds my rubber ball, she will roll it around for me. The Little One often leaves his smaller stuffies out so I can hunt and kill them!”
Do you do any ‘typical’ Katty things that you enjoy, but maybe your 2 leggeds don’t?
“We sleep a lot. Getting in all our naps so we can be alert in the evening”
Have your 2 leggeds ever embarrassed you? If so how?
“No, they are good that way.”
Do your 2 leggeds allow you to bring home any goodies from the outside that maybe you have hunted?
” Oh No. Although. when we were smaller and had a bigger brother, he would bring home mice and birds. Alive. Mom was not a fan and screamed, loudly!”
Do you have favourite toys and if so what are they?
“Lucky-my scratching post. Thomas-my balls. Small stuffies from the Little One’s bed.”
Are you allow to freely scratch inside the house?
“Ssshhhh – Only if Mom doesn’t catch us!!”
Do your 2 leggeds take you away on holidays with them or do you have to stay with friends or within a ‘Cattery?’
“Granny is allergic to us so we remain at home. Because I am actually a grown up in cat years, I Lucky get to babysit the brat Thomas!”
Are you given treats? Too few or just right? What are your favourites?
“No Mom says we are too fat!! I mean we are really just big boned, you know?”
Are you fed a nutritional diet? What type of diet is it?
“Mom has to get us a special formulated one because as a teenager I Thomas am having skin issues. Lucky eats whatever is put in front of her!!”
Do you enjoy it or is it boring?
“It is the best thing of the day.”
Do you eat it every day, or sometimes refuse to?
“We would eat four or five times a day if Mom would feed us … you know being ‘big boned’ and all …”
D] Your Personal Feline Katz Stuff
Are you a vocal Kat or quiet and unamused?
“When we are hungry or thirsty, we are very vocal. Thomas will wake Mom up at 5 a.m. when he is really hungry. I can as well when I want to cuddle.”
Do you deliberately play up at times, just to annoy or worry the 2 leggeds?
“No Mom is onto us, she be a real smart cookie!!”
Do you have a bed of your own or simply share everyone’s?
“We have a king size bed, a couch and a loft bed”
Are you an early riser, or a late napper? Are you in early of an evening or a dirty stop-out?
“We get up with Mom around 5:30-6 on the days when she disappears forever and 7-8 when she does not disappear.”
How much alone time or ‘just you’ time do you have?
“None we are always together.”
Are you into the whole affection thing at all, or is it on your terms only?
“Oh yes affection is very important for both us and Mom. The Little One takes it or leaves it depending on what he is doing.”
Do you like being hugged, belly tickled and so on?
“No no no no no .. and in case we haven’t said that yet , no, no, no!”
Do your 2 leggeds make you dress up?
“Never Mom would not dare … ever!”
Do you actually enjoy it or simply tolerate it because it appears to please them?
“See above, but in case you missed it …. “Never Mom would not dare … ever!”
Do you tolerate photos or do you like posing for them?
“We love love love having our pictures taken.”
Do you have a friendly vet?
“We don’t often have to see the Vet because Mom keeps us indoors.”
Do your 2 leggeds talk to you in meow and does it really make any sense?
“Mom doesn’t talk to us in meow but she is very fluent in understanding it. We know the human language but only when it is convenient. You have to have principals, you know?”
Do you share the household with other companions, perhaps a K9 or ‘’other’’ species? If so what are the others, or indeed the K9’s name?
“When we use to live with the other Big Man we had doggie brothers but they were old.”
Do you get on well with the others, or simply tolerate their presence?
“We stayed away from them, they would bark at us!!”
Do your 2 leggeds insist on bathing you or do you simply say NO?
“No baths … ever, perfectly capable of doing that!”
What would be your purrfect day?
“Thomas-laying out in the sunshine Lucky-sitting on Mom’s lap.”
Finally, in your own words tell us something about both you and your 2 leggeds that the questions haven’t touched on or asked about – something unique …
Lucky-Mom is very sensitive and cries…at movies….t.v. shows….books. But sometimes she cries because of her depression and I am able to sense the difference. When she is sad sad I snuggle on her lap and purr to make her feel better. Thomas-I like to bite the Little One’s toes!! No, seriously it is fun!!”
Maybe you have a Blog like me, or run your own website, or … even social media, like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram?
