Interviews With Cats: Floof At Its Finest With "That Cat" Conrad!
Today's Interviews With Cats features a very special kitty whose Instagram name sounds a lot like our blog name - @ThatCatConrad - but we swear we're not related! Just a happy coincidence, as Conrad resides in Wales! Read his interview here and be ready to feast your eyes on the most regal floof you've ever seen!
Q: Tell us about yourself! Name, nickname, age, city, siblings, etc.
A: Meow! My name is Conrad. I’ll reach the grand old age of 2 on September 20 and I live in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales (UK). My humans amuse themselves by calling me several nicknames including: King Con, KC, Conny, Connichiwa, Fluffy Slug and Baby Son.
Q: Is there a special story behind your name?
A: My name was decided upon after a family vote; we pretty much went around the world trying to come up with a name! I was nearly called Floyd (a name which originates from the Welsh name Llwyd meaning grey-haired) but after sleeping on it my humans preferred Conrad, one of the names on the shortlist. The rest is hiss-tory!
Q: What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
A: My willow tree. No question.
Q: Tell us about your best day ever:
A: It has to be the day my humans came and collected me. I knew from birth that I was destined for bigger things. I’ve ruled my Kingdom with a fluffy paw ever since.
Q: What’s your favorite treat?
A: What isn’t? I eat EVERYTHING, even inanimate objects. It might be easier to tell you what I don’t like – bananas. And that’s it.
Q: Tell us about a time you got in trouble with your meowmy (or cat dad):
A: I mainly get in trouble for clawing the rug or couch when I want something. I think my humans find it kinda funny though, plus Dad is super soft so I can always get round him. Mum takes more time to come round to my way of thinking but I always manage to convince her that I’m not naughty, just ‘spirited’
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and why?
A: It has to be Christmas! My humans have a couple of weeks off work to wait on me, plus I get to climb the Christmas tree AND I get a ton of new toys and treats!
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I didn’t get to choose, the Royal life chose me.
Q: What’s your favorite toy and why?
A: Well it’s not really a toy as such, but I have a sacred garden hole that I protect at all costs. Put stuff in it at your peril – it will be removed with a level of mania rarely seen in the world today.
Q: Do you have any special talents you’d like to share?
A: Oh many! I’m a highly skilled climber, you can often find me on your roof or up a tree. I also have a gravelly baritone singing voice which I normally use to extort food. Also fluff, that’s a talent right?
Q: What do you do that annoys your parents?
A: I suppose I can be a little demanding but a cat of my caliber has the highest standards. Solution: If my humans spent less time annoyed, they could be more subservient. Win win.
Q: What’s your favorite color?
Q: Do you have a best friend(s)? If so, who?
A: My neighpurrs cat Murtaugh was my BFF for my first year of life but he sadly got injured and passed away. I miss him a lot. I do have a black and white girlfriend that visits me often and I also have several frenemies around my Kingdom.
Q: Do you have a favorite pastime?
A: Sleeping on my back like a dead seal.
