Yeezy’s Favorites – Mila

One of my favorite things to do is interview/blog about some of my favorite things. Mostly it’s fellow cats that I’ve met and love! If you or someone you think needs to get their story out please let me know. Email me at yeezycat@gmail.com. I promise to get back to you between naps. Today I interviewing another bestie from Instagram. Let’s get to it!

Yeezy: First things first go ahead and Introduce yourself.
Mila: My name is Mila, nickname Sassypants.

Y: When is your birthday/gotcha day?
M:DOB: September 6, 2005

IMG_4372

Y: How old are you?
M: Eleventy (11)

Y: Where are you from?
M: Colorado but I lived most of my life in Ottawa, Canada and now I live in Montreal.

IMG_4371

Y: How did you come into your parents’ lives?
M:This is a good story! I was born at a Buddhist temple in Colorado. When I was just a tiny sassypants I went home with my first human, we’ll call her Buddhist Lady. She was very nice and took good care of me. (I’m named after a Tibetan Buddhist monk who used music to teach his students meditation.) She even took me with her when she moved to Ottawa, Canada. It was a long car ride and I probably cried like crazy but I don’t remember. After a few years in Ottawa, Buddhist Lady had to go to another city for school so she asked her former roommate to look after me. She cat-sat me for about a year and we grew super close. I need lots of snuggles and she was more than happy to comply! She started asking Buddhist Lady to please let me be adopted by her but we never got a straight answer. She bought me the best quality food and took care of all my needs but I still technically did not belong to her. Then, in the fall of 2015, I got into a pretty serious accident. I decided to go dancing in the street early one morning and a car ran over my tail! We were so scared that it was broken but in the end the bone was fine. It was still gross though, because the top layer of skin and fur had been ripped off. I had to wear the cone of shame and go on lots of painkillers. My cat-sitter put antibacterial gel on my tail three times a day even though I howled and tried to run away. She even let me snuggle at night like usual even though my I kept poking her in the face with my cone! That’s when Buddhist Lady realized that she wasn’t just my cat-sitter, she was my Mom and we needed to stay together. Now we live in Montreal with “Mom’s”boyfriend, even though I’m pretty sure he’s mine. He says I’m obnoxious but he still lets me sleep on his lap while he watches hockey and sometimes Mom catches us napping together! I think that speaks volumes, no? 😉 I love my little family and I’m especially happy that I’m the spoiled only child around here. I’m a big brat with other cats. (Oh and by the way, I don’t wander around outside anymore. Mom keeps me safe and supervised so I don’t run in front of any more cars!)

IMG_4376

Y: What is your favorite food?
M: Anything that makes my breath nice and fishy so I can give Mom stinky kisses on the nose.

 

Y: What is your favorite toy?
M: I’m kind of lazy. I love getting high on catnip but I ignore most toys if they’re not laced with it. I have been known to catch the little red dot, though.

IMG_4375

Y: What is your favorite cartoon cat?
M: Sylvester, hands down! I love watching him “play” with Tweety Bird! They remind me of me with my dearly departed guinea pig brother. RIP Reepicheep.

IMG_4374

Y: Do you have a favorite quote or saying?
M: “Don’t be a drag, just be a Queen!”-Lady Gaga. Mom says I’m a sassy gay man in cat form. Whatever, I’m fabulous.

You are so awesome. Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. Follow Mila aka Sassypants over on Insta @la_afrikita

Yeezy Travels – Red Roof Inn Plus – Houston, Texas

While we were in Houston we stayed at the Red Roof Inn Plus. The room was nice and of course I had to sniff every inch to see who or what has been there before. We stayed for two nights and the only bad thing is that it was super close to the highway. If you have a pet who is fearful of cars or loud noises this location would not be a good fit. I was fine and had a great time. I almost forgot to mention the best part. Pets stay FREE! Enjoy the photos below!

Yeezy Travels- Houston, Texas – Lupe Torilla + Meet Up

One of the best parts about traveling to Houston is that I got to meet my best friend Teddy’s parents! I waited at the hotel while our parents when out to dinner. They went to Lupe Torilla and said it was so good!

IMG_4014IMG_4015IMG_4010IMG_4012IMG_4009IMG_4011

After dinner Teddy’s parents, Curtis and Cindy, came back to the hotel to meet me. I got rubs, scratches, and a birthday present! They were so sweet. I can’t wait to go back so we can hangout again!

IMG_1935IMG_4013

I also got to meet flat cat Teddy. We are practically twins!  Don’t forget to check him and his family out on Instagram @jones_fids.

Yeezycat’s Favorites- Bodie Jones

Welcome to another installment of Yeezy’s Favorites. Today I’m interviewing my friend Bodie Jones.

IMG_3845

Yeezy: Hi Bodie thanks for joining me on the blog today. First things first go ahead and introduce yourself.

Bodie: My official name is Bodie Jones, but I usually go by Bodie. Sometimes my mom calls me The Bodester. She even shortens Bodie Jones to BoJo…. I ignore that one, though.

IMG_3849

Y: When is your Birthday/Gotcha Day?

B: My Gotcha day is February 26, but I’m not sure when my birthday is. My mom didn’t adopt me until I was an adult, and I can’t read a calendar so….I’m not a big help.

IMG_3842

Y: So how old are you?

B: I think I’m about 7 years old. My vet looked at my teeth once and said she could tell my age. Aren’t humans the weirdest?!

IMG_3843

Y: Where are you from?

B: I live in Pittsburgh, PA. My mom’s family is from Ohio, so I go there and visit sometimes. As long as I can look out the window at my Pap Pap’s I’m happy.

IMG_3844

Y: How did you come into your parents lives?

B: My mom used to work at a shelter called Animal Friends. The dog warden actually brought me there because he found me roaming around on a farm. When I arrived, I had been living outside for so long I was kind of sick. I had bugs in my ears and worms in my belly. AND fleas! Have you ever had fleas? Ugh. The worst. Anyways, they fixed me up and it wasn’t long until my mom took me home with her. When I first got there, I was a little uncomfortable. I had never seen a bed before! But now, I get all the way under the covers and sleep with my head on the pillows. I love living inside!

IMG_3846

Y: What is your favorite food?

B: I have a really sensitive system – my skin gets itchy and my ears bother me if I don’t eat a special prescription food. I guess it’s ok. I don’t care too much, as long as I can eat whenever I want and have Party Mix treats a couple times a day.

IMG_3848

Y: What is your favorite toy?

B: I like little foil balls I kick them all over the house. My mom calls me a “soccer player,” whatever that means.

IMG_3847
Y: Has anyone ever told you that you look like a superhero? Do you have a secret identity?

B: I’ve never really heard that I look like a superhero, but I have been told I look like Maru, the world’s biggest feline YouTube star! Does that count? Oh yea! My mom sometimes mistakes me for a lion. Like, she’s totally told me a couple times that she thought I was a lion when I walked in the room.

IMG_3851

Y: What is your favorite cartoon cat?

B: Simon’s Cat! I like him because he makes my mom laugh really hard. Also because he’s always hungry and I’m always hungry too. I figure we’d be friends IRL.

IMG_3850

Y: Do you have a favorite quote or saying?

B: Good things happen to those who nap. (I made that up. Pretty good, huh? Good things happen to me and I nap all the time.)

 
Thanks again for joining me today, Bodie! I know so much more about you and I have to say you just keep getting more and more awesome!

You can follow Bodie on Instagram @bodie.jones. You will not be disappointed! Meow ya later!

Yeezy Travels – Sweet Cup Gelato – Houston, Texas

After a warm afternoon in the park we had to go get something that cooled us off. We found Sweet Cup Gelato and it looked like the perfect place because it had outdoor seating.

965B878C-4291-42A7-A249-E95161DBCB5CIMG_1847IMG_1848

Pops and Mama went in to get something and came out with the best thing… whipped cream. Whipped cream is my guilty pleasure. Yum!

IMG_1853IMG_1852

They had a lot of flavors of gelato and some sorbet and you could get it in a cup or a cone. They also had something called brioche gelato. That’s what they got. It’s like a homemade ice cream sandwich. Pops got caramel gelato and Mama got rose milk gelato. They said it was like something out of a dream! So delicious. I certainly recommend going here if you’re ever in Houston. #yeezyapproved

IMG_1858IMG_1855IMG_2112IMG_1860IMG_2111IMG_2108

Our next stop is dinner with my best friend Teddy’s parents. Stop back by to see how much fun we had!

Yeezy Travels – Discovery Green – Houston, Texas

We drove from New Orleans, Louisiana to Houston, Texas and it wasn’t a bad trip. Just a little boring. But, on our way out of New Orleans we had to avoid some traffic on 10 west and we ended up going trough Hollygrove. If you don’t know that is Lil Wayne’s hometown. So that was cool.

When we arrived in Houston we went to check in at the hotel. We stayed at the Red Roof Inn Plus. (review post to follow) After checking in Pops and Mama were starving so they grabbed some food at Jason’s Deli and then called it a night.

The next day we were excited to get out and explore the city. We drove into the city and found parking in a deck and then walked to the Discovery Green.

IMG_3446

Discovery Green is a 12 acre park within the city. It’s beautiful and leashed pets are welcome. They also have dog runs that looked awesome if your a pupper. Not only is it a park but there are restaurants, a stage, skating, and much more. If visiting Houston this is a must visit! #yeezyapproved

IMG_1795IMG_1797IMG_1803

We had to get photos in front of this awesome wall! There was a lot of commotion going on and I knew there were treats in my bag so I was ready to get carried. I need Pops and Mama to get me a proper carrying bag but for now this works. There was also a selfie station that took your photo, put a frame on it, and then was available to email to yourself. How cool is that!?!

IMG_1806IMG_1811IMG_1823IMG_1825IMG_1834

We had a great time exploring our next stop is a place for dessert. Stop back by to see the rest of our adventures.

Yeezy Travels- La Quinta Inn and Suites New Orleans Downtown

While in New Orleans we stayed at the La Quinta. Honestly we have never been to a La Quinta we didn’t like and this was no exception. We love staying at La Quinta because pets stay FREE, nice beds, spacious rooms, reasonably priced, and free breakfast. Side note: A lot of La Quinta’s have free parking but at this and most downtown locations are valet only. Valet is $35 a night so make sure to add that in to the price of the stay.

IMG_3021IMG_3022IMG_3018

After a long road trip it’s so nice to find a comfortable place to lounge. First I had to sniff out the entire room. I could smell all the other animals that stayed here before me so I just got to make sure they are actually gone. Lol! At most hotels we stay at a lot of the pet friendly rooms are on the same floor which is how it was here. I ran into a nice German Shepard in the hallway and I could hear another small barking dog down the hall. I kind of feel bad for the D-O-G-S because we were on the 9th floor. That’s a long way down for them to go to the potty.

IMG_3012IMG_3013IMG_3014IMG_3001IMG_3011

After I sniffed everything out it was time to eat and boy was I hungry! I scarfed it down quick and then had to go straight to my litterbox. (You can see my set up below. Pops and Mama said I do better when I have all the same stuff in the room that I had in the car and I agree.)

Finally it was time to chill in bed with Pops. My favorite part of the day. He gives the best belly rubs! We watched a little tv and then it was time for bed.

IMG_2996IMG_2997IMG_3005IMG_3008

The next morning Pops and Mama went down to get free breakfast. They always get a waffle. Yum! I had my breakfast and had one more look down on New Orleans and then we were off to our next destination, Houston, Texas! Stop back by to read about our next stop.
