Interviews With Cats: Kitters The Rescue Kitty
It's been a little while (OK, a long while) ... but we're back with another installment of "Interviews With Cats"! This week we get to know rescue kitty Nala Kitters - or just Kitters for short. He lives in Florida and his mom Natalie works for Chewy - so he and his fur-siblings get perks galore! Read on for more fun - and a simian surprise!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: My name is Nala Kitters, even though I’m a boy! My family calls me ‘Kitters’ for short. I’m a 1 year old kitty and I have 4 canine siblings and a bird brother (who calls my name all day long).
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
A: There is! When my meowmy rescued me off the street, I was only 2 weeks old. Being her very first cat, and since I was so young, she thought I was a girl (What an amateur). My name was originally Nala, so they added “Kitters” at the end to make it up to me.
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: Finding my furever home! When my meowmy found me, my eye was completely sealed shut with an infection, but she cured me. Let me tell you, two eyes truly are better than one. After I was all better, the first time I cuddled with my new family I was in kitty heaven.
Q: Tell us about your best day ever:
A: Well, that’s easy! One day, I was home alone and my daddy forgot that I could climb on counters (this is why I love daddy). Would you believe it, he left a WHOLE half-eaten sandwich on the table. I was just purrin’ out of control. Long story short, I was a full and happy kitty for the rest of the day. To make it better, daddy didn’t even notice! I was only caught when my meowmy saw the plate out of the counter with licks all over it... meowmy is so smart. I didn’t even get in trouble! Best. Day. Ever.
Q: What’s your favorite treat?
A: Meow, that’s easy! Anything that’s on meowmy’s plate!
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy (or cat dad):
A: Well, I really like to play in the toilet and I just like to paw at the water. The day I figured out how to open the lid just a tad, my pawrents were so mad! They say that I could get hurt, but the bowl of water is so amusing to me.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: My favorite holiday is Halloween! I’m a black kitty, so I always see myself all over the TV and on decorations. It’s like MY holiday!!
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: When I grow up, I want to be a Jaguar. I saw one on the TV the other day. He was jumping through the trees and growling…just for fun! I can’t wait til I’m all grown up!
Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?
A: I love my Bergan Turbo Cat Scatcher Toy! I just paw at the ball and it goes around and around…and around. It never gets old.
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: Well, they say I’m one of the best nappers around. I can nap through anything… and I mean ANYTHING.
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: My favorite thing to do at night is to walk all over them when they sleep. They get so mad, but it’s so fun!
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: Black, of course!
Q: Do you have a best friend? If so, who?
A: I do have a best friend, her name is Lily! She is a marmoset monkey who visits me every few months.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
A: Keeping up the title as “Best Napper in Town” is tough to keep up, so I spend my time practicing.
Q: Anything else you’d like to share?
A: One thing that separates me from all the kitties out there is that I don’t have a tail! When I was a baby I dropped a vase on it and I had to have it removed. Personally, it makes me look like a hipster, so I’ll take it.
