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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
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.
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!)
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.
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.
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.
