Interviews With Cats: Gaston & Maurice, Best Friends Forever!

mm.jpg

We are so excited to bring you today's "Interviews With Cats," because it features two of our favorite kitties - Gaston and Maurice of @gastonlemagnifique! They are always together - Gaston with his fox-like tail and Maurice with his shiny blue-gray coat - they make a purr-fect pair!


Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.

Gaston: My name is Gaston but you will sometimes hear my humans call me Tonton. I am a 10 months old ginger boy. I take pride in my beautiful coat and my fox like tail. I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my two humans and my baby brother.

Maurice: I am Maurice, Gaston's brother. I am 8 months old. One of my nicknames is Squeaky because, well I squeak instead of meow. Kind of like a chew toy, you see? I think it's more melodious. I like to be different.

Q: Is there a special story behind your name?

Gaston: Our meowmy is French so she wanted us to carry on French names. Gaston was a purrfect fit!

Maurice: When my pawrents saw me, they knew right away that I was a Maurice.

We think our human thinks she is a cat sometimes too.

Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?

Gaston: Definitely when my pawrents brought baby Maurice home! I was 3 months old and I saw that fluff ball entering the room. I found him so ugly and at first I hated him but the thought of becoming a big brother was very exciting!

Maurice: I think it's the day that I discovered that when the humans open the apartment door there is a gigantic hallway in which I can run, sniff new stuff and even meet passing dogs once in a while!! I go there almost every day while the humans take the garbage out.

“I eventually warmed up to him ….”

“I eventually warmed up to him ….”

Sometimes I played pranks on baby Maurice. That’s what big brothers do!

Q: Tell us about your best day ever:

Gaston: My best day ever was when I got adopted. I discovered my new home and met my new pawrents. My home is great, I love it here and I love my family!

Maurice: My best day ever was three days after I was adopted. When Gaston and I finally became furrends. During the first two days, he didn't like me. AT ALL!! He would attack me everytime he would see me... but on the third day everything changed! He told me that he wanted us to become the best of friends. I was so happy! From that moment until now, we never stopped cuddling!

I don’t know what I would do without my bff!

Q: What’s your favorite treat?

Gaston: Oh my... definitely tuna! Nothing better than hearing meowmy opening a can of tuna. The juice of it, the flesh, everything tuna!

Not tuna, but I’ll take it!

Not tuna, but I’ll take it!

Maurice: You also love milk.

Gaston: True. Milk is amazing! I sometimes get a drop or two in the morning.

Maurice: I am not picky. I'll try anything you give me. I have a preference for fish flavored treats but I'll even eat human food.

Sometimes we wonder what other things taste like … like those birds …

Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:

Gaston: Mom has some pots with plants growing in the living room. One time she brought that amazing new planter. It was even bigger than me. She put fresh soil in, some cute little plants. I was observing the whole thing. When she left I couldn't resist, I jumped in, started digging, it felt so good to put my pawsies in dirt! I peed in it multiple times and I eventually got caught... To this day, I regret nothing.

Maurice: I guess you could say that I am the trouble maker in the house. I knock things off all of the time, I hiss at strangers if they try to touch my head. Meomy never gets mad though.

Hard to be mad at these two!

Hard to be mad at these two!

Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?

Gaston: I love Halloween because it was the first holiday I ever spent with my human familly. We dressed up, there was lots of new things to sniff at such as pumpkins and the best part is that I got lots of treats!

This fits me perfectly, don’t you think?

Just sharpening my fangs for Halloween!

Maurice: I like thanksgiving. I was adopted the day before Thanksgiving and I couldn't belive all of the turkey they gave me! The apartment smelled very good. Everything was new to me so it was a lot of fun!

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Gaston: I could see myself being a gardener. I love dirt! I'm going to invest in a house with a garden, grow catnip and pee in dirt.

Maurice: I'm just gonna stay a baby forever. It's working well for me.

Being the baby is lots of fun!

Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?

Gaston: I Love my bouncy balls more than anything. They move so fast! They are great. I have two of them that are the perfect size. I can carry them in my mouth.

I also like to play with feet.

Maurice: If you ever looked at our instagram account, you know that I love my Fox. I've had it since I was a baby. It smells very good. A mix of my drool and the smell of the house. I play with it every single day!

Anyone want to play?

Anyone want to play?

Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?

Gaston: I think that my wonderful tail should be considered a talent. I mean did you take a good look at it? I am a very good model. The camera loves me!

Look at my glorious fluffy tail!

Look at my glorious fluffy tail!

Maurice: I play fetch. Nobody taught me. I just learned by myself and I can play for hours! It's my favorite game. Also if you hide my toys somewhere, I'll go look for them and put them back where they belong.

Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?

Gaston: I guess that the only time meowmy gets annoyed is when she is cooking and we come and sniff everything. We like to try to grab everything she prepares too.

Maurice: Daddy gets annoyed all of the time. He gets annoyed whenever Gaston steals his bookmark, when we run on the bed at night, or when we claw the leather chair in the living room. It's not his fault though, he is just a grumpy human.

Can’t you see we are angels?

Q: What’s your favorite color?

Gaston: Orange. It's the best color of all!

Maurice: I focus on the taste of stuff, not the color.

“Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?”

“Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?”

Q: Do you have a best friend? If so, who?

Gaston: Above anyone, Maurice is my best friend. I'm very happy to have him with me everyday. When I lose sight of him I call him and he answers with a squeak.

Maurice: We also have lots of friends on Instagram. The cat community is big there! Some of our best friends are @BERGAMOT.THE.CAT, @FREDLILLYFRANKY, and @lovekittykarma.

Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?

Gaston: I really enjoy being brushed. It makes me purr and it help me stay handsome.

So fresh and so clean!

So fresh and so clean!

Maurice: When I have energy I love to play fetch and when I feel sleepy and cuddly I suck on my favorite blanket and knead. It's very relaxing. It takes me back to my kittenhood.

I also like boxes!

I also like boxes!

Q: Anything else you’d like to share?

Gaston: We would love to thank all of our Instagram followers for their love and cute messages. We love every single one of them!

Maurice: And we hope that anyone interested in getting a cat goes to his local shelter. There are a ton of cats just waiting for someone to love and be loved In return. Cats make amazing companions! #adoptdontshop
