Interviews With Cats: "Fatgry" The Rescue Cat
Meet Angry the Dutch rescue cat - her moms have nicknamed her "Fatgry" because when she first showed up, her wagging tail made her seem angry, and then once she was adopted she started getting chunky! This adorable kitty is our Interview this week and is fast becoming a celebrity cat in the Netherlands! Read on for her story.
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: Hi, I’m Angry - my nickname is Fatgry. I don’t know exactly how old I am, but I was adopted half a year ago and I live in Nijmegen, Netherlands. And the most important part - I am a calico cat. I’m supposed to bring good luck!
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
A: When my mothers first found me, I wasn’t used to being around people, so I would move my tail all the time and whenever someone tried to touch me, I would scratch them. So one of my moms decided to call me Angry. Later, I started gaining weight, so I also got my nickname, Fatgry, because now I’m fat and angry.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: Well, the most exciting thing happened not long ago. A magazine from my city wanted to have a photo shoot with me. It was so amazing, because I was getting treats every minute, just to make me pose.
Q: Tell us about your best day ever:
A: I think my best day was actually when the new students moved in last year. They offered me more love and food that anyone else before. For the first time, I felt like I had a home.
Q: What’s your favorite treat?
A: My favorite treat could be ham. I wait in front of the fridge meowing until my mom gives me some.
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:
A: My moms are really sensitive and they get very upset when I try to catch mice. Once they waited outside for an hour for the mouse to leave, to stop me from eating it. We argue for ages when that happens.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: I love spring. I can finally go outside and walk around. I sometimes get in fights with other cats, but that is fun too.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I always wanted to become the mascot of NEC Nijmegen [Dutch football club]. I like to dream big.
Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?
A: It might be strange, but I like to play with uncooked noodles that I find on the kitchen floor. It’s so fun.
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: Well, as you might already know, I am a really good model. I like to be photographed, especially when I sleep. Yes, I’m such a good model when I sleep.
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: I jump on the sink and try to lick their plates. But come on, I am just trying to make them clean them quicker. They shouldn’t leave their dishes in the sink if they don’t want me to touch them.
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: Being a calico, it is difficult to have a favorite color. So I have three: black, white and orange, because these are my colors. I wouldn’t change them for anything in the world.
Q: Do you have a best friend(s)? If so, who?
A: No, I’m kind of a loner. I don’t like to share anything that I have, so probably this is why I keep at distance all the other cats.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
A: I like to pretend I’m a princess and wear a crown.
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: Recently people started to make fan art for me. I feel very special when I see that people admire me.
