How do you keep your sleek appearance?
Do you miss not having the urge to go catting around with other female cats?
What is <your person>‘s best, and worst, traits?
I’ve been napping and contemplating your questions deeply.
Fur-stly, thank you for your compliment on my appearance! While I certainly take care of my grooming regularly, I’m not a compulsive bather. My fur is shiny due to my human giving me plenty of petting – the oils from her skin help keep my my fur shiny. She also brushes me regularly – I insist on that.
Second item – that is a rather sensitive question. We boy cats don’t like to discuss our missing, er, fur balls, not to put to fine a point on it. That said, I prefer the company of humans. Other cats, while of course superior creatures to humans, are very hard to control and I don’t like fisticuffs – although I’ll take on any dog that dares come to close, I’d rather not get into a cat fight.
As to my purrson – She is a very attentive and caring human and caters to my needs as best she can. Unfortunately, she likes to sleep through the best part of the night – between 2-5 am. I’m doing my best to break her of that habit, and it seems to be working — for the last 2 weeks, I’ve had her up between 3-4 in the morning for food, treats, and walking the halls. Hoping to get her fully night-trained soon.
Thanks for your very insightful questions!
Clark, you are so wise!
