Thursday Frolicks ~ Cat of the Week! WE'RE BACK!

Welcome to

Thursday Frolicks

Many greetings to all our wunderpurr furriends and welcome back to our weekly feature, that sadly got put on the back burner due to me getting Lost in Space! MOL

So without further adieu here's this weeks

Featuring the totally amazing

Many Con'Cat'ulations Sammy!


Sammy and I are memfurs of Cat Scouts and he's a truly remarkable Scout, a  polydactyl kitty too and his Mom writes mystery novels, anyhoo before my ramblings continue here's what Sammy had to say during his interview:

1.      A Little About Myself:   I turned 15 on January 1st!  I was adopted from the local shelter at the age of ABOUT 6 weeks old but nobody knows.  I was found under an abandoned house all alone.  My Mom and Dad live in a BIG house and I’m an only cat but I wouldn’t have it any other way!  Spoiled?  Yep!  

2.      What Is My Most Favorite Thing:  Blogging – secondly, strawberry yogurt, thirdly, bacon

3.      What Is My Least Favorite Thing:  Noise.   I like peace and quiet.

4.      Indoor Kitty or Outdoor Enthusiast:   I am mostly inside but Mom trained me on a harness from kittenhood so I do get to go outside for walks.  Now that I’m older and know my yard limits, I can go out in daylight without the harness but always with Mom or Dad.   If it’s dark outside I’m always on the harness and I kind of like being out there in the DARK!!!

5.      My Favorite Treat:   Bacon…..I also quite like the occasional piece of turkey, ham, or salami

6.      My Favorite Snooze Spot:   Anywhere my Mom is sitting – I love being on her lap.  As I’ve gotten older my favorite “other” spot has changed….used to be Mom’s bed but can’t get up there anymore - - - then I switched to window seat but don’t like that - - - then sunny spots on the floor and that remains my “second best” spot for a snooze to this day!

7.      Special Toy?   I have a very old toy that was one of my first EVER – but all that’s left is the elastic string and the ball at the end of the string…..there was more to the toy when it was new but it’s long gone.  I drag the string around with me frequently.   I also quite like my toothbrush!   It’s a human baby’s type toothbrush but I’ve had it since I was a kitten and I like to chew on it……..Since I like to chew on the brush part, Mom says I’m brushing my OWN teeth.  

8.      My Favorite Time of the Year:    Spring and Fall – it’s a “tie” – I love both of them.  Not super hot – not super cool – it’s JUST RIGHT.  

9.      Anything Else to Share?   Well, I’d like to say that I’m happy that the only medical problem I have at my age is hyperthyroidism which is controlled by medication for now.   I know so many others my age who have heart problems, kidney problems, teeth/gum problems, litterbox issues but I have none of those………..I’m a little bit arthritic but even that’s not so bad.   I think I’m lucky to be in good shape and I hope I stay that way for a long time because I really do love my life and my Mom and Dad.   They are THE BEST!

10.  Am I creative?   I didn’t write a book myself, but I was the “inspiration” for my Mom’s two childrens books.  One was about a feral kitten who wandered off and lived in a magical woods and started his own community of feral cats and the other book is a childrens book of fables in which animals are the main characters.   

11.  If I Could Do ANYTHING, What would it be?    Well, there are TWO things……I’d quite like to be able to fly like a bird (how cool would THAT be?) AND I’d like to live another 15 years with my Mom and Dad.   We are the purrrrfect little family!

Hugs, Sammy
