Answer Your Cat's Questions Day 2014
Do you ever wonder what your cat is thinking? Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day is a chance to find out, and to answer some of their big questions. Take some time and attempt to work out what questions your cat is asking, and make a concerted effort to fill in the blanks.
The proper way to participate in National Answer Your Cat's Questions Day is to be aware of your cat on a more conscious level, and notice when your cat is trying to ask you something. Your job is to stop what you're doing and try to figure out what your cat is asking, and do your best to answer the question.
Here are a handful of questions that I think Truffles would ask me:
Am I the cutest kitty in the whole wide world?
Yes Truffles, you absolutely are.
Out of all the homeless kitties out there, why did you pick me?
You know how I talk about your big sister Tara all the time? Well, when she died my heart was absolutely shattered. I knew I wanted another tortie just like her. When you popped up on Petfinder I thought you were absolutely adorable and I knew I had to bring you home. Plus you came from the same neck of the woods that she did so a part of me likes to think you may be related somewhere along the way.
Why did you name me Truffles?
I had every intention of naming my next tortie Mocha, but when I saw how cute and tiny you were, my first thought was, "That's my little Truffles!"
Why did you take the Christmas tree down? It was so pretty!!!
I know honey, it made me sad to take it down too. Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year, but if we left the tree up all year we wouldn't have the fun and excitement of looking forward to putting it up next Christmas!
Why can't I lay in my screened-in window during the winter?
It's January in northern Vermont...you would freeze your cute little buns off!
Why have you nicknamed me Truffles the Treat Junkie?
Because they're your favorite thing in the world! All of your treat packages are kept in a basket in the living room and the minute you enter the room you sit right in front of it waiting for me to open a package. If I'd let you, you would live on treats alone!
That reminds me...can you go shopping for some more kitty treats? I think I'm running low...
No sweetheart, you got so many new treats for Christmas that I put them in a bag in the kitchen. You have plenty.
Love me Mommy?
I love you so, so much Truffles. And I always will.
