Furiends, this week I have the pleasure of introducing the pawesome Toby to you all! Welcome Toby!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Toby and I am an orange marmalade with long fur. My fur is my best feature, or maybe it’s my golden eyes. Despite what everybody else in the house says, I’m in charge around here! Mom picked me out of a litter of kittens to bring home. My cat mom belonged to a friend of my human mom. I was born on Super Bowl Sunday, 2006! And I was named after a favorite character in a television show called “The West Wing.”
How do you spend an average day of your life?
I wake mom up for breakfast, eat, harass the other cats to remind them of who I am, nap, wake, eat, harass, etc. and wait till mom gets home from work so we can snuggle.
Tell us about who you live with? Do you like them?
We are 5 cats living in a small house. There’s me then there’s Simon, an aging house panther; BobbieSue, a black tuxedo with no tail, and the two most recent additions, PeggySue, a black tuxie; and Merry Belle, a tabby tuxie. Do I like them? Not especially. Not since I lost my foster cat mom, Piper, last summer have I bonded with another cat. Simon likes me way more than I like him. He likes to groom me but I don’t return the favor. BobbieSue ignores me. PeggySue is just around a year or so and is full of energy. We share meals together and when I’m trying to get a drink from the bathroom sink she likes to get in the way and play with the water. She is a real pest. MerryBelle is still feral so I don’t see her a whole lot.
Do you like meeting new furiends?
I love meeting new furiends. I have a next door neighbor named Bella Mae. She’s a doxie and really sweet. On the other side of us are three really loud dogs and they nice, too.
What’s your favourite hobby?
Helping mom with her crafting. Whenever she’s cutting up paper or gluing or painting, I’m there ready to help. Sometimes I help her with the tape and string as well. She’s very appreciative of it.
Where’s your favourite place to relax?
It changes. Right now my favorite place is on top of the antique spool chest. I also like to relax on mom. She’s very soft and lumpy and very comfy!
Have you ever been on a boat? Do you think you would like it?
I have never been on a boat. I think I would love it because I love to go outside. Mom only lets me outside when I’m on a harness and leash.
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? (Don’t be shy it’s good to get it out in the open.)
Thrown up in her shoes. And believe me, I can throw up some yucky ones!!
What do you think your next big adventure in life will be?
Well, mom’s going to start getting me out and about and used to riding in a car. I know I’m having my photo made this year with Santa and we are hoping to go to BlogPaws next year! Its’ going to be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina so we can drive there.
Where’s the best place you’ve ever been?
Anywhere with mom is the best place I’ve ever been.
If somebody asked you for advice and you only had a few minutes to give them your best tip, what would it be?
Give your mom (or other loved one) as much love as you can because you never know what will happen in the next minute.
Do you have a website or social media channel where we can follow your future adventures?
Yes!! Toby’s Wrecking Crew is my blog name and the address is http://www.kittycaperz.wordpress.com . There I share the blog with all the cats, but as I started out this interview saying, I am in charge of it and write the most! I also review books with the Crew over at Library of Cats blog. The address is http://www.libraryofcats.wordpress.com . Simon reviewed your book, Bailey Boat Cat!! Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out!!
Thank you SO much Toby! It was a purrleasure to have you here today and to learn about you and your siblings. Great advice and so pawesome that you get to go to Blog Paws next year! I wish I could go! It’s great being in charge and you obviously do it so well! Keep it up my furiend.
