Happy Caturday, Lovelies!
I am so excited and purry to present you an intermew with my gorgeous furriend, Kooty the Owl Cat! Look at those eyes! And that face! And those little teeth!
Hazel: Hi Kooty! Wow, you are a cute kitty! What advice do you have for bright young kittens aspiring to build a web presence?
Kooty: I know this might sound a bit cliché, but be yourself. If you want to have a presence in the amazing vast world of the kitty-net, you need to do it for yourself, not for other people and kitties. As soon as you start stressing out on how you want people and kitties to perceive you and how you can please them, you will lose yourself and your identity and you will fail and be just like everyone else. Be your wonderful kitty self and you will be unique, original, and loved for it.
Hazel: I definitely pawgree and that’s super important to remember! Who has been your biggest inspiration and why?
Kooty: My biggest inspiration has probably been mama. We’ve been together for almost 13 years now.
Hazel: Aww wow, I am so happy you found each other!
Kooty: I never really thought of even going into the kitty-net world, but mama has always had so many pictures of me, and she’s always been my private Mamarazzi.
Hazel: Mamarazzi? Mol!!
Kooty: We both inspired one another and decided to open an account just for me and my Mamarazzi pictures! After opening one and delving into the kitty-world, I never really expected we’d have so many amazing friends and that there’s a whole huge kitty-net society! It was fascinating!
Hazel: And then us kitties get to meet each other and discuss movies and books and TV! What do you like to read or watch?
Kooty: Well, mama and I are quite picky when it comes to books and series/movies. We aren’t easily pleased. When it comes to books, we love most classics, like Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, and so on. We love the Harry Potter series (NOT the movies) and Game of Thrones series! And there’s so much more!
When it comes to series, our top three are Game of Thrones, Sherlock Holmes, and Downton Abbey.
When it comes to movies, Disney classics are always the best! (The Lion King, WOO! Major crush on Simba), and movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit trilogy, Braveheart, and so on…
Hazel: Nice choices! How do you feel about the rise of feline power, and how do you see that power shaping the world in the future?
Kooty: The rise of feline power is absolutely wonderful! Ever since the beginning of mankind, humans have always claimed that dogs are a man’s best friend. It has always been a dog’s world, until the Internet existed and we turned it into the Kitty-net! The humans need to see that there are much more to kitties than they think! We need some attention and we need to be prioritized. This feline power will help many unnoticed kitties to have a new home. If it wasn’t for the kitty-net, then me, a black cat, would never have the opportunity to go out there and show the world how amazing and wonderful black cats are! And because of my kitty-net presence, I’ve had many humans adopting black kitties that they probably never thought about before they saw me! I’ve very proud of the attention I’m giving to black cats and all cats in general!
Hazel: Right, the Kitty-net has made all the difference in busting the black cat myth. My character Nugget is a black cat but he’s too cute not to love! Other than Nugget, because who would you love to have dinner with? What would you eat and where?
Kooty: Well, I would definitely be @jayorag from Instagram! He is such a handsome kitty and we would have a wonderful time eating tuna flakes or honey-roasted turkey in a candlelit dinner in Spain (where Fellini is)!
Hazel: I hear Spain is pawmazing!! Let’s talk about mistakes. What you got?
Kooty: Well, when I was a little kitty I wasn’t very friendly as I am now. I didn’t like people touching me and I never ever sat on mama’s lap. I was afraid of almost everything and I ran away and hid a lot. As I grew older, I’ve become warmer, and now I am more trusting of my family and I sit on mama’s lap all the time!
I learned that I shouldn’t be so afraid and that I should have been more trusting long ago. I really wish I was but it’s better late than never.
Hazel: Everypawdy has their own path, I am purry you found yours! It’s been so nice chatting with you, Kooty, so to conclude, if you could say only one thing to a potential new or existing follower, what would you like them to know?
Kooty: I would like to thank all my existing and new followers, on Instagram and Facebook, for the constant support that they’ve always been showing me. I never in a million years expected to be loved and appreciated the way I am today, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without their support and inspiration. I wish I can show them how much I love and appreciate every single one of them, I always read every single comment and many of them makes mama and I smile. Thanking them will never be enough for us, but truly, I am so grateful for them.
Thank you so much for the wonderful questions!
I hope you enjoy them!
Kooty the Owl Cat
Hazel: Thanks Kooty! Have a wonderful rest of your Caturday!
And thank YOU readers for reading!
