Caturday Connections – Mario

Furiends, today I have the purrleasure in welcoming the very handsome Mario for Caturday Connections! Welcome Mario!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m 10 years old (we think as I’m a rescue from the shelter). I was at the shelter for 4 months before M and D came in looking for a new kitty to adopt.


How do you spend an average day of your life?

My life is kinda boring and since I’m a senior, I like just laying around taking it easy – especially if there is a lap to be sat on.

Tell us about who you live with? Do you like them?

I live with M & D and I love them to death. They are senior citizens too, so we all like to be lazy.

Do you like meeting new furiends?

I love meeting new humans and always greet humans at the door. So far I’ve only met my sisfur’s two kitties, but I did kinda like them. When we lived in our house, last winter they came to spend 2 weeks at our house while Sisfur and SIL were on vacation. We had a great time playing.

What’s your favorite hobby?

I love napping. I also like playing with the Neko Fly when M plays with me.

Where’s your favorite place to relax?

On a lap, if there is a human around. If not, I’ll go to a bed or my window perch if the sun is shining.

Have you ever been on a boat? Do you think you would like it?

I’ve never been on a boat. Since it’s surrounded by water, and I don’t like to get wet, I probably wouldn’t like it. It might be too confining for me as I couldn’t run very far.


What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? (Don’t be shy it’s good to get it out in the open.)

A couple of times when we lived in our house, I snuck outside without my harness or leash. I didn’t go far – just wanted to patrol the back yard. But it wasn’t long before M discovered I was missing and came to get me.

What do you think your next big adventure in life will be?

That’s a good question. Since we have only lived in this apartment for 3 months, I don’t have any plans right now.

Where’s the best place you’ve ever been?

Outside in my own backyard when we lived in the house. I loved it out there and would ask a couple of times a day to go out please.


If somebody asked you for advice and you only had a few minutes to give them your best tip, what would it be?

Periodontal disease is rampant among cats and dogs. See your vet for a good cleaning or have your humans brush your toothies. I became toothless at the age of 4. The vet said I was probably born with the genetics to have periodontal disease. You can see my full story in my bloggy:

Do you have a website or social media channel where we can follow your future adventures?

I have a blog:
I’m on Twitter: @Mariodacat
I’m on Facebook: M’s name “Mary J Roever”

Wow Mario you sure do know how to take it easy! I think all of us younger kitties should take note that the secret to a long and happy life seems to be lots of cat naps! I think your fly toy looks pawesome! Thank you so much for pawticipating today!

Happy Caturday evfurryone!

Bisous, Bailey

  9. Good evening Bailey, the first photo of Mario looks just like my pretty fur baby Penn. His mother was feral and died before her babies were weaned. He was raised on a bottle and is very precious to me. Mario is a lucky cat.
