July 2014 Fur Friend of the Month – Dinnermintz
Dinnermintz is our lovely moggie friend all the way over in Australia
Thank you Dinnermintz for staying up late (morning in the UK – 12 hours behind) purrrrr. Have a coffee 🙂
You are one gorgeous moggie we love the photos your clever mum Bev ( otherwise known as Fozziemum) took of you.
So how did you end up in your fur ever home?
I ended up in my forever home after being a 3 times foster fail..MOL ..mum was a volunteer at the shelter and I was in the ISO ward..i had catflu..me and my litter sister anywho..mum was cleaning the wards feeding us all and doing trays..there were so many sick kittens that all foster mums (mum was a foster carer too) were asked to take some kittens home with their meds and get them better..so mum took me and my calico sister home…we had lots of meds and stayed for a week and got well..so mum took us back…(she had another foster with her at the time…Cleo..yep Cleo) soon she found I was sick again..the catflu was really bad..so she got the meds and bought me home…again….after a week and a bit I was much better..she took me back…and then…yep..i got catflu again!!! so…she bought me back AGAIN with meds AGAIN..and boy when she opened the PTU I was out like shot up on the kitchen bench and having a drink from the kitty water bowl…then down and wrassling with Pickles…so family conference and Ta da I was adopted…mum just couldn’t take me back!…
You have a unique name. How did you get it?
My name Dinnermintz was sort of long winded..i was nicknamed Gingerninje and mum hated it…it became ginny moo..then Dinnermintz! and you know evfurryone always comments on what a great name it is MOL …
What is your favourite treat?
My favourite treat is cooked chicken..i am on a strict diet as I had a serious issue with crystals..so I can never even have special vet dry food…and tinned food is a real treat occasionally as I can’t have that either…so fresh meat for me!
What do you love most about your human slave?
She loves me no matter what..i know she will always be there for me…she did a lot to get me well and she always has my back.
You are a multi pet household. Tell us more and who is your best buddy?
In our home we have three other kitties and two poochies and three sheep! my best bud is Pickles..we clicked right off when I was a foster and even though she tries to beat me up MOL (she is such a midget I let her go) we snooze together and our of all the kitties we groom each other all the time…but I also really love Forrest and we snooze together as well.
Something you have never shared before?
mmmm..well I don’t like being picked up…all those meds being put in my mouth as a kitten makes me think being picked up means meds! and the only person I EVER lie on or cuddly up to is mum….and I also may be a bit chubby….
Who is your super hero?
I have to say my superheroes are those people who volunteer at shelters..it is furry hard work ad can be sad and if it wasn’t for these peeps kitties like me would not have the lovely home and life I have.
What music do you like to chill out to?
l love to chill out to Spanish gypsy music…go figure…I am a strange girl! but I find it relaxing…
Well thank you for taking the time out. You must go and get some shut eye now purrrrr
