Truffles Interviews...Mudpie!


Hey everybody, it's Angel Truffles!

By now you've all had the chance to meet Miss Mudpie. She's a cute little thing, isn't she? I'm sure many of you are interested in knowing more about her and how Tara and I came to choose her for Mommy.

This is how it happened:

I'm very "in tune" with Mommy's heart. On July 30th she saw Mudpie (who was then named Gemma) on Petfinder. The minute she saw that sweet little face she felt the same tug at her heartstrings that she felt when she first saw me.

She saved Gemma's pictures on her computer and tablet and looked at them several times daily. I kept telling her it was okay to take that next step, but she needed a little more time.

Finally, a week later on August 5th, she decided it was time to contact the shelter and find out more about her. She heard exactly what she had been hoping to hear, her adoption application was approved on Friday, and on Sunday, August 9th, Mudpie came home.

Of course, before any of this happened, I had to make sure that Gemma was a suitable candidate to win Mommy's heart. Here's how our initial interview went:

Truffles: Hi Gemma! I understand you're applying to adopt my Mommy. Could you tell me a little more about yourself?

Gemma (now Mudpie): Thank you so much for the opportunity, Truffles. If I'm the kitty you choose for your wonderful Mommy, I know that I have very big paws to fill!

Basically, I'm a teeny tiny kitty with loads of love to give. I just need to find the proper purr-son!

I'm about 2 years old, and I started life in Cattaraugus County, New York...that's on the Pennsylvania border! I ended up in a shelter there, and then got transferred here to central Vermont's North Country Animal League...boy, was that ever a long car ride! Luckily I seem to enjoy road trips.

I love playing with toys, I'm a super picky eater (but let's not tell her that ahead of time, okay?), and I love snuggling in human's arms and sleeping on their laps!

Truffles: You sound like just what Mommy is looking for. She always hoped that I could be a lap cat eventually. Now this position also includes being a kitty blogger. Mommy spends *a lot* of time on the computer. Her part of the blog is mostly book reviews, so you will need to cuddle up with her while she reads. Every now and then she will ask you to interview the fictional cats and dogs in the cozy mysteries she reads. Then there's Caturday Art and Sunday Selfies...and you will get to write some reviews too when toys and treats arrive in the mail.

Gemma (Mudpie): I love toys and treats!!! This sounds like fun!

Truffles: It is a lot of fun, and you will make so many lifelong friends in the cat blogosphere. Just wait until Christmas when you'll get to participate in the Santa Kitty Toy Hop and send toys to the kitties still waiting in shelters for their forever home.

Gemma (Mudpie): That's pawsome...shelter kitties need Christmas too. Will I get prezzies for Christmas?

Truffles: Absolutely. Mommy will sign you up for Secret Paws, a Secret Santa gift exchange. Kitty bloggers are randomly paired up to shop for Christmas gifts...it's a great way to share the holiday spirit with our friends.

Gemma (Mudpie): WOW!!! I really think I can do this, Truffles. Will you help me to learn everything I need to know?

Truffles: I will always be by your side, both yours and Mommy's. Now do you promise to be the best kitty you can be, and to take care of Mommy and love her to pieces?

Gemma (Mudpie): I do, Truffles. Oh, I do. I love her already.

Truffles: Then I choose you to be Mommy's special new kitty. I wish you a purr-fectly beautiful life together.

Gemma (Mudpie): {{{Purrs}}} I'm going home!!!
