Our three questions...

So we heard today was National Answer your Cat's Questions day,  so the Momma agreed to give us each a question, and she would answer them for us today... so here goes...


Harry:  So how come my name is Horatio Petrushka Nutkin ?  I do like Harry, much better.

You did start off as just Harry, but as many parents do, when their children are in hot water, utilize all 3 of their names to call them.  So in case  you don't remember you were a pretty naughty kitten, so the first part you got was Nutkin, because you had big ears when you were a kitten and you looked like Squirrel Nutkin from the Beatrix Potter book.  Harry became formally "Horatio" probably because your dad and I watched CSI Miami a lot and we liked David Caruso.  The Petrushka came from the fact that several of our angel kitties somehow ended up with "P" as their middle initial (Arthur P. Suckboy, Abberita P. Kins)  Somehow, sorry I don't remember more, but your "P" sounded better as Petrushka.  Now if you would be a good boy more often, you could just be Harry, or Harry Nutkin... get my drift ?



Tipp:  So Harry and Dexter got all these cool catnip toys for Christmas... they get crazy for them,  rolling around, drooling, being silly...  Me, when I go to play with them... meh... nuthin'.  What's up with that ????

Don't worry sweetie, lots of kitties could care less about nip.  It is part of what makes you, you.  About 1/3 of kitties don't care about nip either, which works out just right since there are 3 of you boys. ( I know, you don't know math... ask your daddy, he'll explain it to you... at length... until you get sleepy...)

Just remember that you get your excitement from the thrill of the hunt.  You are the bestest killer of feather wands, crinkly balls, squeeky mice (and real ones on occasion) and your brothers are pretty lame in that department.  So be proud of who you are, and remember, if you don't get nipped out, chances are I will take less pictures of you in compromising posititons.




Dexter:  Why am I so snuggly all the time?  I always want to make biscuits and like your hand, I like you to hold and have my belly rubbed... and I get sad a little when you are not around.  Daddy said when you were gone to a trip that I seemed a little lost and lonely.  The other boys don't act like that... why do I ?

I'm not sure my sweet boy, but maybe it's because you see me as your mom. Your real kitty mom is an angel, she went to the Rainbow Bridge when you were a teeny tiny kitten.  Some really good people raised you and your little sister (remember Valentine?) by holding you and feeding you from a little tiny bottle and keeping you warm and safe.  The people were like your family, like a mom who would take care of you like that.  You were still pretty young when you came to live with the Daddy and I, so maybe I became your mom, just like the other people had been.  I think it's also because you are a sensitive kitty, and that you feel my energy, like when we sit really quiet sometimes together.  But the why doesn't really matter, you are my boy and I love you.  I love your brofurs too, but you and I have our own special ways.  Really, can you see me trying to rub Harry or Tipp's bellies ?  That's your special love and I only do that with you.

Well, thanks mom for answering our questions... we hope you kitties out there take a minute today to ask your humans for some answers to the great mysteries of your lives.  See ya soon!

  4. Our Mama is so out of the loop, she didn't even know to answer our questions , so we didn't get to ask any! Your questions were good and your Mama's answers were loving and sound! Dexter, Mitalee thinks you are pretty darn cute too. But she would kill us if she knew we told you!

  10. Great Q & A! Every one of our mom's 12+ kitties have been nip heads. What are those odds? Our Mica Moo is just learning to like it, and she's about 5 years old. She really needs to relax!

  21. Harry, I love the name Horatio Petrushka Nutkin. It's so distinguished and unique!

    Tipp, I'm so sorry you don't care about catnip. I understand some cats don't but I don't get it. Maybe you'd like Silvervine or valerian, it's worth a try. You can get toys with either one these days.

    Dexter, I'm not a cuddly cat but my fursib Frangi is (though she doesn't go as far as allowing belly rubs). Mommy says every human should have one cuddly kitty, so you are fulfilling a very important function.

    Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs to all of you.

  22. Harry dood. You have three names too? Only faraday has that many over here. Come to think of it, maybe there's a reason for that...!
    (Pee Ess, Dexter dood, I'm in the same boat as you. I love extra special on momma cuz she nursed me back to health as a kitten when they found out I was deaf and quite sick. I guess our mommas will always be very special to us boyz).
