Interviews With Cats: BG, Lucy, Dubs, and Boos of Sir Smitten Kitten
Today, in "Interviews With Cats," we feature not one, not two, not three, but FOUR fluffy friends to give you a little peek inside their daily shenanigans. Meet Lucy, BG, Dubs, and Boos of @Sir_SmittenKitten. Their favorite things include the usual suspects: catnip, boxes, and of course - napping. Read on for more cuddly adventures!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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: Dubs is my best friend and if Dubs doesn't want to play than Boos!
Dubs: BG is my best friend and sometimes Lucy depending on her mood.
Lucy: Dubs is my best friends and basically a son to me. He cuddles and lets me clean his dirty ears!
Boos: I love playing around with BG. She plays tag and chases me around the house.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
ALL: Sleeping, playing, and eating!
BG: Don’t forget wrestling and playing fetch!
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.
