August 2014 Fur Friends of the Month – Lone Star Cats
Have you met our friends Travis, Crockett and Maurice? if not then read further
Thank you moggies for taking the time out to be interviewed today you all look mighty handsome (Michelle’s words not us the man cats) MEOW
So who is who..
How did you come to your forever home?
Maurice was adopted from the pound as a kitten. Crockett and me wuz both at Petco with the Feral Friends rescue group and we were adopted from dere.
How did you get your names?
Maurice wuz named after Maurice Chevalier. His momma has always liked Frenchy stuff and took French in high school, so she picked that. (Before this gets too confusing sounding, we got a lotta humans in our house – Crockett’s momma and daddy and their 2 daughters – one of whom has Maurice and the other one who has me.) My momma liked a Texan name for me, so she named me after William Barret Travis, da Texan commander at the Alamo. For Crockett, da humans decided to go with the Texas theme and named him after Davy Crockett.
Describe your personalities
Maurice is da cool cat. He’s definitely da most suave and cat-like. He can be a big sweetie though – he even gives da people hugs. But sometimes he looks at the rest of us like he can’t believe he has to put up with us. Then he’ll join in playing!
I’m da big sweetie of the house. I’s never bitten or scratched a person and will even roll over and show my belly at da vet for tummy rubs. I will steal food right off da counter though, so while I’m sweet, I’m definitely a mischief maker.
Crockett is a little ball of kitten energy – he can play play play! And I’m teaching him well in my food-thievin ways.
My favorite is bacon, although shrimp and crab are favorites too. And I’ll rip open a bag of Greenies or Temptations treats and eat dem all (dat are why dey are locked up). Crockett likes da bacon too and Maurice prefers fish.
We luv our wand toys and our catnip mousies. And of course, our tunnel. We are always runnin through the tunnel.
Your super hero?
Mine is Garfield. An orange cat who eats everything – sound familiar? I do luv me some Italian food too. 🙂
Favourite place to sleep
On my momma’s bed or on my Hazel Lucy Tranquility Blanket. I also like the back of the couch.
Any advise for anyone thinking of owning more then one moggie
Try to pick compatible personalities. We are all pretty friendly dudes and get along fairly well. And don’t stress about some hissin or a lil slap fight – dat are just us playing!
Finally you guys are very photogenic and have beautiful conditioned fur. What is your secret to looking so fine in front of that flashing annoying object the slaves call a camera?
First is dat my momma do not use da flash on her flashy box (while photographin us anyways). She says it can make our eyes look a little demonically-possessed. She will snap or whistle or dangle jewelry to get our attenshun. And she takes a lot of photos – y’all don’t see all da bad and blurry ones. And my advice for da kitties – just put up with it – da sooner da peeps get a good picture, da sooner dey will stop takin em. My momma won’t stop until she gets one she likes, so we’ve all kinda learned to put up with her.
Thanks so much for featurin us!
Travis, Crockett, and Maurice
