Interview with my mum

HM: Hi Mum!

Mum: Hi Huffle.

HM: What is your real name? Is it something other than “mum”?

Mum: My name is Tracey… but you can call me mum.

HM: What do you do all day when I’m left home alone?

Mum: Dad and I go to work so we can afford your stinky cat food and all those mouses you love playing with.

HM: Hmmm… where is this “work”? Can I come too?

Mum: I work for the Victorian Government – if I worked at Google I’d take you to work but you’ll just have to stay home for now.

HM: What about dad? Does he go to this “work” with you?

Mum: Well, we travel together but he works in a different place.

HM: Can I go there with him?

Mum: You’ll have to ask him! But remember you don’t like travelling in the car.

HM: Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Why is Salvador so mean to me?

Mum: He’s old and grumpy. And he has dementia. He’s nearly 16 now so I think he finds your 7-year-old energy levels a bit much. Just stay out of his way and he’ll leave you alone.

HM: Why don’t I get more new mouses?

Mum: You don’t play with all the ones you do have! How many more do you want?

HM: That’s beside the point. I should get new toys all the time. Other cats do *sniff*.

Mum: Which other cats?

HM: Never mind. So what do you and dad do for fun?

Mum: We don’t have time for fun – we have to keep you and Salvador in food and mouses. We like to go out for dinner to nice places, and we like going on holidays.

HM: What’s that all about? You keep going away and leaving me here!

Mum: But we don’t leave you alone – your aunt comes to look after you. And I’ll bet she feeds you more than dad does.

HM: Well... that's not important right now. Are you going to get me a puppy to play with soon?

Mum: Probably not for a few years. We don't have the room. And I don't think you'd like to share with a puppy. You might lose a bit of space on our bed. Which reminds me, I have a question for you!

HM: Really? But this is me interviewing you.

Mum: It's just a short one. How does one small black cat take up so much space on a king sized bed?

HM: It's a gift.

So there you go! One day I will try and interview dad but he's a bit shy.

Hey Huffle Mawson,

I like your new blog look. You look so big in your picture! Are you bigger than me? I hope not...Anyway, your mum and dad seem nice to buy you new mouses, but I agree with you that you need more toys. Especially since they leave you alone all day.

That was a great interview. Be sure to stay on Mom about more mousies. I see you've mastered the art of bed hogging. Very clever!

Woo Huffle. From this interview, it sounds as if you have your humans right where you want them. Excellent job training them

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

nice to meet you! sounds like your mom's priorities are almost right. she knows that she's gotta go to work to provide you with food and mousies (do you like the feather butt kind or the rattly kind?), but you've still gotta get her to realize that a holiday isn't a holiday unless she spends it with you.

Great interview. Very informative. I don't mind so much when my humans go to work. The furry beasts get put in their crate so then I can have the run of the house without them bothering me. What kind of stinky food do you like? Mom keeps trying to buy me different canned food that is supposed to be healthier, but I won't eat it. I prefer my Friskies canned food.

Meow,
Wilbur
