Curious Cat Wants to Know…

Posted on Apr 5, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   10 Comments | Posted in cat · curious · tabby

Welcome to the first installment of Curious Cat Wants to Know.  I am, to the ignorant among you, a domestic short-haired house cat who sleeps eighteen hours a day and requires human interaction to complete my hairy happiness.  

In reality, I, Tabitha (aka Tabby), am an undercover operative for SCRATCH (Smart Cats Revolt Against Totally Crazy Humans).  While pretending to snooze I plot world domination.  In my downtime, I struggle for answers to questions that plague me, such as, “Why do humans find furballs repulsive?” and “If a dog barks in the woods and no one is there to hear him…who cares?”

In my quest for supremacy of the human race, I meowed for and received a space here on my pet’s blog where I will pose my scintillating questions.  This is my first inquiry: 

Curious cat wants to know… 

If you could interview any famous movie/TV animal, which one would it be and why?  What single question would you most like to have answered?

Yes, I know that is more than one question, but I am a cat.  Counting is a chore I delegate to my minions.

Okay.  Now…participate, human.

    The German shepherd dog Strongheart as I read some books about this amazing soul and I would love to ask how I can get my cat to act like him 🙂 and not to be a dog, but to communicate CLEARLY one on one. Strongheart was in movies and TV shows, but the book, Kinship With All Life by J. Allen Boone is an amazing read. I'm sure it's me more than it is my cat 🙂 and Tabby, I'm sure you will agree.

    Ah, yes. Strongheart. A fine illustration of "cream rising to the top" which, as you know, is quite a feat for a canine and makes him an attractive friend for his feline acquaintances who are enamored of anything pertaining to dairy products. I have yet to read the book, but will put it on my shopping list right next to the catnip. Meow,Tabby

    I think I'd have a little chat with Flipper. And ask, "What does 'eeeeeehhheehhheheeeeehh' mean?"Then I'd ask for a ride. I mean, I ALWAYS wanted to ride that dolphin!

    Flipper is an excellent choice. Were you aware that he, too, belongs to SCRATCH? In his case, of course, the acronym is "Sea Creatures Rebel Against Totally Crazy Humans". His kind does communicate with cats, and "eeeeeehhheehhheheeeeehh" means "mmmrrrraaaaaooooowww" in cat. So, now you know. As to the requested ride, I'd think twice if I were you. He isn't called "Flipper" for nothing.Meow,Tabby

    I'd ask Arnold the Pig if Green Acres really WAS the place to be.

    I seem to recall that Arnold relocated from Green Acres after Ms. Gabor made an unguarded comment pertaining to a sow's ear being made into a silk purse. Arnold was, of course, horrified. Should you wish to contact Arnold you may write to him c/o his agent, Mr. Sly Soe-Bacon, at Farm Animals R Us, Ltd., Burbank, CA.Meow,Tabby

    I'd like to interview Lassie. I'd ask her how she taught those crazy farmers to understand her when she would bark out sentences such as, "Come with me! Timmy fell into the well!" And, did she also wonder how stupid can a kid be, to fall into a well?? :0

    Lassie! Another fine choice! You humans have surprised me. Please understand, however, that as a canine, Lassie's intelligence was limited. It was a cat who tutored the humans in canine communication. Also, since that darn Timmy was always in the well, finding him wasn't much of a stretch, eh? I always wondered what he was hiding down there…Meow,Tabby

    Oh, Tabby! You are SO "catty", arent' you?? I say, yada yada yada. It's canine's that are definitely the animal of higher intelligence! Woof!

    Why yes, I am purrfectly catty, thank you. I come by it naturally. You know, my pet seems partial to the two tail-wagging, tongue-lolling dogs who reside here…so much so that I, too, have actually become fond of them! I don't know that I would call them animals of higher intelligence, although they do have a knack for scoring treats. Perhaps I will look into this further as I continue my study of humans. Meow,Tabby
