Tag, I'm it. You could be too!

Amie the Cattle Dog gave me a quiz. Even though she is a d-o-g she looks very nice and happy. So I told her I would play...
1. What advice would you give a young kitten who seeks to be as successful a cat as you are?
You have to train your humans early. Show them how you will reward them with purrs and loves if you get the kind of treats, sleeping places and otherwise appropriate attention that you want and deserve. Don't ever bite or scratch unless it is a human who should know better. Kitten humans just don't understand the idea of 'gentle' or 'don't pull' so it is best to just go limp and slip out of their hands. A pitiful yowl will also help you be rescued. Half-grown kitten humans (the kind that try to dress you or put silly hats on your head) should get a gentle swat and then one with heat in it. Grown-ups sometimes like to play, so you let them do it until it hurts and then you give them a "bat-bat-tiny claw" so that they figure out you don't think it's fun. When all else fails, hide under the bed. And don't come out until you hear the Greenies bag rattle.

2. How can peaceful coexistence between cats and dogs be maintained?
I have never lived with one. They walk by our door and the smell of them scares me. Amie seems very nice, and so do Dogblogger and Molly. I think I like them because I can't smell them. I think the key is that if dogs and cats are co-habitants, that you let them get used to each other slowly.

3. What is your humans' most endearing trait?
They know how to give a girl Greenies and most amazing scritches. Sometimes both at the same time!!!

4. Even the most advanced beings have room for self-improvement. What do you hope to accomplish in the next year?
There is this yummy looking stripey chipmunk... some day I will catch it and it will be MINE MINE MINE!!!!

5. What would you like to tell humans who seek the secret of contentment?
Three things:
  • purr loudly and often
  • wash behind your ears
  • a nap in a cozy spot brings your mood back up to sunny

RevGalDogPals or CatPals (or humans, for that matter), would you like to be interviewed by me, Tiria the Shadow Princess? Here are the rules:
1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave a comment here or on my human's blog saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post with your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Gotta run... it's time for my facial...

Nice play, Tiria!

Yes, I'm sure if we smelled each other, our friendship would start to get complicated.
