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

Boos: My meowmy was recovering from a broken femur and wrist. A co-worker found me as a little baby and became my meowmy’s first bottle baby.

Lucy & Dubs: Our meowmy and cat dad rescued both of us from the Salt Lake City Humane Society. Lucy was two years old and Dubs was a few months.

Dubs: Though my fur is dark, I was rescued shortly before Halloween and the humane society was having a discount on adoption fees if you adopted a kitty over 80% black. They did not get the adoption special but they still brought me home!

BG: I lived with my meowmy’s furriend. I was six-months old and living with my real cat dad, real cat mom, and siblings. Although my coat is calico, I am actually half Bengal and half Mainecoon.

Lucy: I try to be a mama to all the cats besides Boos! Making sure that BG and Dubs are always groomed and looking the best!

Grooming level: Expert

Q: Is there a special story behind your name?

BG: Our meowmy is horrible at deciding name. For example, she choose Boos for a name! While trying to see what personality would best fit a new name, she continued to call me Baby Girl, Jellybean, Squirrel (because of my fluffy tail), and settled on BG. It doesn’t matter anyway because I pretend I can’t hear them.

Lucy: At the humane society, my name was Saber but my meowmy felt that the name didn’t fit me so she named me Lucy.

I look like a Lucy, don’t I?

I look like a Lucy, don’t I?

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

BG and Dubs: The most exciting days are when the UPS guy comes and gives us boxes and boxes! Better yet, boxes with packing peanuts!

Boos: When Dubs joined our family, he was young and playful. I tried to play tag with Lucy and get her to chase me but she never would. Dubs and I became best buddies! Even at a young age, he still whooped my butt.

Tell us about your best day ever:

BG: I was so used to being around my other feline and canine friends and when I was placed with my meowmy, none of the other cats would play or snuggle. After a few day, Dubs is so easy going and likable that we started snuggling in only a few days and have been best pals since!

Boos: When my purr-nets went to California and left me for a few days, I was so lonely. A few days later they came back and I purred so loud and wouldn’t let them put me down. I was SO happy!

Lucy: I was in a cage at the humane society and my meowmy unlocked the cage and I jumped out. When she tried to put me back, I flat out refused. She decided then and there that I was coming home!

Dubs: Whenever there are delicious treats in the house, that’s my favorite day!

Q: What’s your favorite treat?

BG: Anything edible regardless of what type of food it is. If it’s good enough for my meowmy, it’s good enough for me!

Soooo … I get treats for putting up with this sh*t, right?!

Soooo … I get treats for putting up with this sh*t, right?!

Dubs: I’ve become a treat connoisseur and will only eat Tukabear freeze dried chicken treats. I put my nose up to any other treat that is offered to me.

Lucy: If it has the words “cat treats” anywhere on the bag, i’ll eat it.

Boos: I am a very picky eater but I will steal bacon from my meowmy’s plate and catnip.

“What do you mean it’s empty?!”

“What do you mean it’s empty?!”

Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy (or cat dad):

BG: I wasn’t spayed when I arrived at my new home. I loved peeing on my cat dad’s side of the bed and blankets!

Dubs: When my cat dad hasn’t done an efficient job on cleaning the litter boxes, I let him know by peeing on his clothes!

Boos: I was the only kitty at the time and still pretty young. While my meowmy was sleeping in her bed, I loved peeing on her comforter, but one night she closed the bedroom door so I would no longer have easy access to her bed and I never did it again.

Lucy: I am perfect! I never get in trouble.

BG & Dubs: “We would never pee on cat dad’s stuff! Oh wait …. yes we would.”

BG & Dubs: “We would never pee on cat dad’s stuff! Oh wait …. yes we would.”

Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?

Dubs: I love Halloween and Christmas. Knocking shiny balls off the tree is the best and on Christmas day, MORE BOXES! I also love Halloween. My meowmy sometimes puts up cobwebs and spiders and it’s fun getting tangled in all the webs!

Don’t mind me….

Don’t mind me….

New toy?!?

New toy?!?

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

BG: A demolition worker! I love destroying boxes, paper, and any paper related items.

Dubs: A mechanical engineer. I help my cat dad with his homework all the time! I help with homework and studying.

Lucy: I’m happy being a stay a home cat mom.

Boos: I want to be an treasure hunter! I love finding new spots where no one has gone to explore.

“Wasn’t me!”

“Wasn’t me!”

Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?

BG: Twisty ties, paper towels, paper bags, Dubs, catnip toys and toilet paper.

Lucy: I love playing with fishing poles but I just like grabbing onto them and never letting go.

Dubs: I have my favorite leopard print mouse and wrestling with BG and Boos.

Boos: If it has catnip in it, it’s my new favorite toy. I love Stark Raving Cats catnips joints.

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

BG: I love playing fetch and wrestling Boos and Dubs.

Boos: I love playing hide and seek. My paw-rents can hardly ever find me!

Dubs: I can sleep for a long period of time.

Lucy: I am a professional groomer. Everyone needs to look their best!

Wrasstlin’!

Wrasstlin’!

Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?

Dubs: My cat dad doesn’t like when he has his schoolbooks out and taking notes and I jump up and try to help but he doesn’t think it helps at all.

Q: What’s your favorite color?

Dubs: Green brings out the colors in my eyes!

BG: I love bright colors! Orange, reds, and yellow.

BG says that red is the color of passion.

Lucy: Pink and blue! I love dressing up with a wide variety of colors.

Boos: Green because it’s the color of catnip.

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

BG: Don’t forget wrestling and playing fetch!

Hellooooo … we were busy napping!

Anything else you’d like to share?

Boos: I love kissing my meowmy and cat dad’s noses. I love being held like a baby and my meowmy even has a special song that she sings and I come running in to get some love!

Lucy: My purr-rents are incredibly dirty! I take it upon myself to groom their toes, fingers, arms, and feet.
