August Intermew Blitz with Help Find Chester the Cat Lost By Air Canada!

Standard

Day 20 of my August Intermew Blitz! Meet Chester!

Advice?

Always remember to thank your fans and meow all the time for no reason. People like that. Also no matter what, always try and stare at them for a long time.

Inspiration?

My biggest inspiration is Abby the Tabby. She does everything for me. I enjoy watching her move and jump over me to get to where she wants to go. She inspires me to get up and walk into other rooms.

Entertainment?

I enjoy watching anything on TV that has birds, food or other cats. I also watch whatever the little humans are watching on TV.

Politics?

I’m too lazy to worry about feline power. All the power to them, but I will be on the floor with my legs in the air watching it on TV.

Dream Date?

I would love to have dinner with my fans. I would eat a turkey. I might even share.

Mistakes?

My first mistake getting into that crate, the second mistake was not attacking the airline worker who dropped my crate. I learned that eating bugs and drinking out of puddles can keep you alive on an airfield till someone realizes you’re there.

Conclusion?

Thank you for believing I was still alive and supporting my owner as she tried to find me. =^..^=

Thanks, Chester!

August Intermew Blitz with Sophia the Three Legged Kitty!

Standard

Day 6 of my August Intermew Blitz! Meet Sophia the Three Legged Kitty!

Advice?

Just to be very sweet and sincere! Always be kind. Appreciate and love your fans!

Inspiration?

Homer the blind cat! He was a very strong kitty that overcame being blind and lived a normal, happy life!! The momma also loved his book!

Entertainment?

For books I’d say Homer’s Odyssey (I love Homer the Blind cat!!). I also love horror movies. I like to sit next to the momma and daddy and watch scary movies! As for TV, I watch whatever the momma likes, like the Walking Dead and Once Upon a Time!

Politics?

I think the rise of [cat power] is great!! I think more kitties will get homes! Two of my sisters and I were strays at one point so hopefully the rise in power will make people want to adopt more!!

Dream Date?

Hmm… Maybe Tara the cat. Kitty food or chicken! Preferably at my house! I don’t like to leave my house.

Mistakes?

Do NOT trust cars!! I trusted cars once and I lost my leggie! They are evil!!!! The momma keeps telling me that they aren’t all evil but I don’t believe her!

Conclusion?

Hm…I would say just that I love all of my followers!!!! (Heart Symbol)

Thanks, Sophia!

Caturday Intermew with Fluff!

Standard

Happy Caturday, furriends!

I am so excited and purry to bring you an intermew with my good buddy Fluff!

Hazel: Hi Fluff! Welcome to this week’s edition of the Caturday Intermew Series! Furst question, as always, what advice do you have for bright young kittens aspiring to build a web presence?

Fluff: To young kitties who are thinking of starting a Facebook page, be kind, and sensitive… Post happy things, although there will be sad times to share too… appreciate all of your fwiends, and know that you are providing a service to many people who need your fwiendship. Never get involved in DRAMA, i hate to visit pages that all i hear is negativity about someone posted something they did not like and how this person iz being mean, if you ever have anyone be mean, you can block them without all the DRAMA.. i haz had for almost a year, and i have never had any drama.. I believe your page iz what you make of it, and if you make it a happy place, then you will have lots of fwiends who will lub you always.

Hazel: That’s some smrt advice, readers. People will like a page that they like, and nice things are easy to like 😉 Who has been your biggest inspiration and why?

Fluff: My biggest inspiration for starting my page iz a kitty named Max Thompson, he iz a writer like yourself, I haz read all ob hims books.

Hazel: Oh, I’ll have to check him out!

Fluffy: But my mommy and daddy also inspire me, they are kind and loving and haz shown me how to trust… but there are so many friends that also inspire me on a day to day basis… I am inspired by anyone who iz kind and has a good heart..

Hazel: What do you like to read or watch?

Fluff: Some of my favorite books are: The Psychokitty Speaks Out: Diary Of A Mad Housecat ( Max Thompson ) Bite me ( max thompson ) HOMER’S ODYSSEY ( Gwen Cooper ) As for Movies and TV… i do not watch very much, but i lub anything with Garfield, he is my favorite kitty

Hazel: Me too! We share a mutual admiration for lasagna. Speaking of lasagna, how do you feel about the rise of feline power, and how do you see that power shaping the world in the future?

Fluff: CAT POWER !!!!! I see that cats are becoming more and more powerful and verbal… we haz opinions and we are letting them be known.. I think we are creating awareness for shelter kitties, and feral kitties, and we also are raising awareness for animal abuse… I think as time progresses, you will see cats involved in many things, even politics, heehee… My friend Andy is running for president in 2016.. he iz a gweat cat!!!

Hazel: I’d vote for him! According to this BuzzFeed article, kitties are getting some visibility. Okay, we haven’t talked about lasagna in a while…who would you love to have dinner with? What would you eat and where?

Fluff: Lets see, who would i like to have dinner with ??? Dis is a hard one…. I would like to have dinner with Monty… he is a friend of mine with a genetic condition which affects his looks, but he is bootiful… He raises awareness for special needs kitties… I would eat CHICKEN, cause dats my faborite !!!!! Oh and I would lub to have dinner wif the cat on the Dear Kitten videos, i fink him iz PAWSOME !!!!

Hazel: Haha both of thems are great!! What are some mistakes you’ve made and what did they teach you?

Fluff: Mistakes i haz made …. mmmm. let me fink…. I dont make mistakes, heehee… but seriously…. the first mistake waz not trusting my mommy at first… if i had i would hab been inside long before i waz… I eat Fat Rats tweats when her iz not wooking… and i hide wheneber we haz company… dont know if these fings would be considered mistakes but dey are my vices…

Hazel: Oh yeah, you were a feral cat that your mommy rescued! What a great story. We’re almost near the end of the intermew, so to conclude, if you could say only one thing to a potential new or existing follower, what would you like them to know?

Fluff: One thing to potential fwiends : I lubs all my fwiends, and I lub making new fiwends.. I iz not famous, just a wittle kitty who cares about others, i wike to hab fun and joke and play …and share wif all my fwiends.

Fluff 1

Hazel: I lubs being your furriend, Fluff! Thanks for chatting with me today!

And thank YOU readers for reading!

A cordial purr,

Hazel

Caturday Intermew with Buzz the Fuzz!

Standard

Happy Caturday! Intermew time with my beautiful buddy Buzz the Fuzz!

Hazel: Hi Buzz! Thanks so much for being here! What advice do you have for bright young kittens aspiring to build a web presence?

Buzz: Be yourself, whether you are a beautiful baby, disabled dude, one-eyed wonder, missing limbs, or not, you are you and that is pawesome.

Hazel: Pawesome! Who has been your biggest inspiration and why?

Buzz: The Columbia Greene Humane Society (http://cghs.org/) They rescued me and 39 dogs from a bad situation, and it was the costliest cruelty case in the shelter’s history. Without their hard work and dedication to animals, we could have flown under the radar and not been helped at all. They have a new facility and it is absolutely amazing. Every single person who works there and volunteers is an inspiration!

Hazel: Wow, that’s incredible! What a story. Speaking of story, what do you like to read or watch?

Buzz: Being a cat, reading is a bit hard. I get fan mail from all across the world and my Mama reads me that. I like those (Buzz the Fuzz, PO Box 150, Rensselaer, NY 12144). As far as TV I enjoy when the nature channel is on. The other day, there was a documentary on penguins which I found very enjoyable!

Hazel: Haha I have a penguin buddy in Spain right now, he takes pictures of his shenanigans, they are so cute 🙂 How do you feel about the rise of feline power, and how do you see that power shaping the world in the future?

Buzz: Everyone needs entertainment. Cats on the internet are here to stay. Live & laugh, and if you are fortunate to have a cat in your lap-HOORAY! People who don’t recognize and enjoy felines will eventually be phased out, as evolution continues.

Hazel: Even kitties should get kitties, they are just a great furriend to have. Who would you love to have dinner with? What would you eat and where?

Buzz: Well Buzz Aldrin of course!!! I would eat tuna from a dish on the floor and he would have a designer PB&J sandwich in my kitchen- Chez Buzz.

Hazel: Lolz that sounds like a great time. What are some mistakes you’ve made and what did they teach you?

Buzz: I learned really fast not to jump on the toilet when the seat isn’t down. Swimming in the toilet is not okay.

Hazel: Oh no! I keep trying to open the toilet seat by my humans keep saying that’s a bad idea.

Buzz: I also have learned that I’m not aloud to dart outside in the middle of the night and take a lap around the garage. Dad successfully got me back inside but it shocked my Mama to tears even though I was safe. I never wanna see Mama cry again!

Hazel: I’m glad you’re safe! Well this has been fun, Buzz! If you could say only one thing to a potential new or existing follower, what would you like them to know?

Buzz: No matter how much life has got you down, someday, someway, it will turn around.

Hazel: Beautiful. Thanks Buzz! 

And thank YOU reader for reading!

Headbonks and a sandpaper tongue bath,

Hazel =^..^=

Caturday Intermew with Hunter from “Hunter and Friends!”

Standard

Hi everypawdy!

It’s Caturday!! I am so excited to share this week’s intermew with my furiend Hunter from Hunter and Friends! We had a great and stimulating conversation, including the topics of fat pawing, inspurrations, and inter-species friendship. 

Hazel: Hi Hunter! Thanks so much for being here. You sure have a bunch of furiends! What advice do you have for bright young kittens aspiring to build a web presence?

Hunter: Wow! There was so much to learn and figure out when I made my page and got my first furiends. Here’s my top tips:

First get help from your human. My pushy paws are too fluffy and I couldn’t see the keys on the laptop. My human said I was “fat pawing” because I kept hitting lots of things at the same time.

Hazel: “Fat pawing,” MOL!!

Hunter: Fur your page, make sure you let furiends comment and post their pictures too….us felines do like to strut our stuff, you know.

Then sit really pretty and let your human take your picture for your profile picture. I like to keep mine the same all the time so my furiends know it’s me when I visit their pages.

Then you have to introduce your page and who mew are for the world to know. I wanted my page to have a mission, not just be all about me. I did a short introduction about me and my page’s mission and then used the long option to tell my story of finding my furever home.

Hazel: That’s smart, having such a positive mission as “to educate, protect, respect, love and smile all that is the magic and mysteries of the Feline,” makes the internet a bit brighter of a place!

Hunter: I like using the “Notes” options too. I can put impurrtant things there for my furiends and their humans and they can find it easily, long after the original post.

Once you get your page set up, you have to make some furiends too. When you’re the mew kid nobody “likes” mew at first, so I went and searched for furiends and “liked” them first and told them who I was. I asked them if they had furiends who might like me too. Humans call it networking. I’m really furiendly, so it was easy to make furiends all around the world. Sometimes we don’t all miaow the same, so I installed “translator” so we can purr together.

Be true to mew! Don’t try to be a copycat and do what other purr pals are doing on Facebook. Share posts and memes but keep your followers interested with stories and pictures of mew. And don’t let your human get too involved….sometimes they get upset over a post and start posting their opinion. Remember, we’re dignified!

But the most important part, is to keep visiting your mew purr pals and giving them some headbonks. And, when they visit me, I miaow back to them. If mew don’t share your toys and play with your furiends when they call, pretty soon they won’t visit and mew will be lonely again.

Hazel: Wow, thanks for all the tips! That’s some great advice. It sure can be hard to keep up with the rapidly-growing community of internet kitties, but it sure is worth it. Next question, who has been your biggest inspurration and why?

Hunter: This is tough one, because it’s hard to pick just one. When I read stories of some of my furiends, I realize I have little to complain about, being an amputee kitty. If you’ll allow me to pick two, it would be:

My humans. They are my biggest inspirations. I wish every kitty could live with us. They really love us just the way we all are, even when we’re not so nice or so purr-fect. They know each of us is different and they like that. And they take really good care of us, even though we don’t like going to the vet, or getting medicines or baths. We get good food, toys and lots of attention and they spoil us. After my neglect by my breeder and the bad rescue place, who also hurt my roomies Juno and Jayden, my humans restored my faith in humans.

But for kitty inspirations, I have to say ALL homeless, stray, feral and abused animals are my inspirations. They don’t have nice warm beds and lots of food or toys. And they meet bad humans who hurt them. No animal should ever have to live unloved, crippled, or blind or hurt or die.

Hazel: That’s interesting, you know when I ask kitties for their inspurrations, I often find that they tend to be the sources of light in some of the darkest times, which makes them especially special. When I found my forever home I was a really sick kitty, but they took care of me and I couldn’t stop purring! High-paw for inter-species friendship!

*High paw*

Hazel: As a Writer Kitty, I’m purrious: what do you like to read or watch? Favorite books, plays, TV shows and movies?

Hunter:  My favorite book of all time ever is “The Silent Miaow: A Manual for Kittens, Strays and Homeless Cats” by Paul Gallico. This is a must read for every kitty who needs a home or has one and wants to train their human. And, it’s fun to read by the human who loves us.

You would think my favorite play would be “Cats” but it isn’t.

Hazel: It’s fun, but you can tell it was written by humans.

Hunter: My favorite play ever is “The Gin Game” about two old people in a nursing home playing cards. The man teaches the lady to play gin and she keeps on winning and he gets mad. It’s funny and sad at the end. But, I think it should have had a cat in it. Our purr makes sad and sick people feel better and we love to play with cards on the table.

Hazel: Note to self, restage “The Gin Game” with a cat in it.

Hunter: My favorite movie is “The Birdcage” I thought it would be about birds and feathers, which are my favorite toys. But it wasn’t, but it makes my humans laugh a lot and I like that.

Hazel: Note to self, refilm “The Birdcage” with actual birds.

Hunter: My favorite TV show is “My Cat From Hell” with my hero Jackson Galaxy. He proves to humans that we are not bad, we react to the way we’re treated and he makes humans learn to think like us and stay in furever homes.

Hazel: I am really glad we have a human like Jackson doing some of that inter-species dialogue. Now that cats are becoming so prominent in the media, I like to ask my feline furiends: how do you feel about the rise of feline power, and how do you see that power shaping the world in the future?

Hunter: Well, I am a Persian, as you know. It’s one of the oldest breeds in the world. So, I’m going to get historical and philosophical here.

Hazel: Of course, go right ahead!

Hunter: Cats have always ruled the world from the time of Mafdet and Bastet in Egypt over 10,000 years ago. We’ve just been quietly taking over homes and the Internet. More people have multiple cats in their home vs multiple dogs. Maru and Grumpy Cat are more famous everywhere than any dog. I found an excerpt online that states, “Today points out that the most-watched pet video of all time belongs to a husky who says, “I love you” (aww). But Maru and his many boxes has the most subscribers. The site also points out that the top five cat videos have been viewed almost two million times more than the top five best dog videos. Which leads us to assume that while dogs are crowd pleasers, they won’t inspire the cult purr-sonality of a kitty. So, as Wu-Tang says, Cats Rule Everything Around Us, and if you want a viral star, you better find yourself a very grumpy cat. ” I think because of our growing popularity, quiet dignity and poise and purr (which baffles scientific explanation) we are making in-roads on exploitation, abuse and neglect. I see more convictions for abuse, but feel there is so much more to be done. We have not only an opportunity but a responsibility to educate and protect, and expand animal rights. I’d like to see the day, in my lifetime, where we are legally considered family members, just like the little mini humans, and protected the same way, not as “property” that we are now.

Hazel: Exactly, we aren’t humans, but we still experience than mysterious, mesmerizing, wonderful thing called life. My family treats me like I belong there, and I couldn’t feel happier. If you love a cat, they love you back, so it’s just overall a really nice, positive experience, like dinner. Speaking of lasagna, who would you love to have dinner with? What would you eat and where?

Hunter: Hmmmmm. As a purebred cat, I have very discerning tastes. My humans say I can be purr-snicketity. I like the finer things in life. So, it wouldn’t be Grumpy Cat because he hates everything MOL I think, it would be nice to dine with the Fancy Feast kitty. She looks like me and has very good taste and manners, eating from a Waterford crystal dish. I think I’d love to dine in Paris, at Le Taillevent, We will have Boudin de Homard Bleu “Tradition Taillevent” ou Pressé de Volaille Fermière au Foie Gras de Canard I know I’m Persian, but I have a very refined taste. Lobster and shrimp pate, of course, mais oui!

Hazel: Oh that sounds delicious! What’s are some mistakes you’ve made and what did they teach you?

Hunter: Oh boy, I’ve made some doozies and Mom catches some of them on video to shame me.

Hazel: Mol!

Hunter: Let’s see:

I made the mistake of trying to sit on a standard window sill with only 3 legs. I clawed up the front of a chair in front of the window, hopped across the seat and clawed up the back to the top of the chair. From there I could step to the window sill, but it was too narrow for me to balance and I fell off. I tried 3 more times, with the same result. I learned that I can only sit on the wide window sills or in the kitty perch to watch the birdies. I also learned my humans thought I was cute and laughed at me but felt sorry for me and I got extra hugs.

I learned dog food is not good for me and makes me fluffier.

Hazel: Interesting, I have to try that.

Hunter: I learned that not everybody “likes” me on Facebook and some friends unliked me. That hurts my feelings, but it taught me to just keep being happy and sweet, to keep purring and be myself. We are all different, even if some of us look alike. We may all be cats, but we’re individual felines with our own purr-sonalities. Sometimes we can get catty and just don’t see eye to eye, but we can co-exist together and even have the same furiends.

Hazel: I get some unlikes too, Hunter, I don’t think it’s purrsonal. Like the inspurration part of the intermew, there is more good in this world than bad and it’s amazing to see how we pick each other up. Truly one of life’s most beautiful things. This has been great, Hunter, so to wrap up: If you could say only one thing to a potential new or existing follower, what would you like them to know?

Hunter: “All kitties are “special” and so are the humans who love us, so don’t be a copy cat, just be yourself, forgive, have fun and keep purring.”

Hazel: Love it. Thanks Hunter! This was fun, hope you have a great rest of your Caturday!

And thank YOU reader for reading!

Purrs and a headbutt,

Hazel
