Interviews With Cats: Graveskull The Persian
Graveskull the Persian is one of our favorite kitties who is living the good life in NYC! We've had the pleasure of meeting Graveskull's pawsome mama (and lucky receiver of Gravie's "Healing Paws"). Read on for more adventures and follow along on Instagram @graveskullthepersian!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: My name is Graveskull...yeah, you heard it right: GRAVESKULL. I am 4.5 earth spins old and live in Queens, NY with my older brother Senor Tacos (who is a dog) and my lil sis KitKat and purrents. I have a lot of nicknames like Gravy, Gumman (Swedish for cute old lady), Battle cat, Wild cat and many more.
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
A: YES!! My mom loved the cartoon He-Man growing up in Sweden and she always thought He-Man’s castle was called Castle Graveskull, when it in fact is Castle Grayskull :) My dad thought this was so hilarious, so they decided to name their first cat Graveskull. So that’s the story behind my name.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: I think my biggest excitement must have been the day I opened my spa: “Healing Paws by Graveskull” where I offer different kinds of treatments like meowssage, acupurrture, meowki, pawlates, meowga, aromapawrapy, purr baths and more.
Q: Tell us about your best day ever:
A: Everyday is Caturday! So I guess everyday has been purretty pawsome so far!
Q: What’s your favorite treat?
A: I love savory treats like salty chips and cheese doodles. I will even steal them right from the humans' hands muhahahhaa *naughty laugh*
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy:
A: Well, there was this one time when mom made all these blueberry muffins that she put in a sealable container. When she left the house to go and get something from the store, I opened the container and tasted every single muffin! I even dropped one muffin onto the floor for Senor Tacos to enjoy whilst I kept nibbling on all of the muffins (like 10 of them) in the container. Mom wasn’t impressed.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: Is Caturday a holiday?
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I hope to expand my Healing Paws business and maybe offer my own teacher training for other cats wishing to learn more about manipulation techniques so the humans give us more treats.
Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?
A: Anything that is free like a piece of string or an old crinkled up receipt from Trader Joe's.
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: If you didn't know already, my meowssages are world-class and my meow classes always sell out and have a waiting list.
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: I refuse to let them brush me for more than 3 seconds. I heard that the hippie look is in so I don't want to look too neat!
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: I think purple brings out my eyes the best.
Q: Do you have a best friend? If so, who?
A: I guess that has to be Senor Tacos and KitKat, even though they can be annoying sometimes :D
