Whistle and Fish's Cat Meme

Many thanks to St Casserole, who introduced us to Whistle and Fish, her two ginger kittens, who are the authors of this meme.

1. What's your favorite food?

Mia: Fish (sorry, Fish kitten). Tilapia or salmon are best, but I will get up and amuse my humans by begging like a dog for just about any fish at the dining room table.

Spooky: The leaves from my human's alstromeria, which I then promptly throw up.

2. What is your favorite toy?

Spooky: Twist ties. Rubber bands. Paper on the desk. Anything but those sappy cat toys, unless they're doused in catnip.

Mia: The blanket under which I hide (note that I hate dangling participles. I'm an educated cat.)

3. What is your best trick?

Spooky: It's not a trick; it's a feline imperative. I sit at the backdoor and cry to go out on the sunporch. I sit there on the porch for 38 seconds and then cry to come back in. My record for getting my humans to get out of their chairs to let me in or out is eight times in ten minutes.

Mia: The aforementioned hiding under the blanket. That's a feline imperative as well.

3. What is your favorite human trick?

Mia: Ignoring me. I want to be alone. Except when there is fish on the dining room table and I want some.

Spooky: Cleaning out my LitterMaid self-cleaning cat box. I then immediately re-enter it and leave a gift. It's so much fun!

4. What human rule do you break often?

Spooky: Sitting on the dining room table in the afternoon sun.

Mia: Sitting on my human's pillow and shedding on it.

6. What are you glad your human does NOT know about you?

Mia: I am a tiger, not a tiger kitty. If I so chose, I could rip them to shreds. I do not so choose, since they do occasionally give me bits of fish from the dining room table.

Spooky: I am panthera panthera, and I kill dust bunnies. I act like the alpha cat around here, but the gecko definitely makes me nervous...
