Sundays with Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 170

Published in: Just For Fun

Tabs still hasn’t stopped talking about the last Sunday Pet Poll. He quite enjoyed reading about your pet companions and furry (and fur-less) friends, and when I asked him if he thought we should do it again, he immediately replied, “Mrow!”



Tabby gets what tabby wants, so here we go. :)

Same idea as the Monday Poll. Just copy/paste the list at the bottom into your comment.

Who is Tabs the Cat? About three years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model). :)

The Sundays with Tabs Sunday Pet Poll

  1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
  2. Tabs is a 5-year-old 18-pound American Shorthair kitty supermodel, image consultant and blogger with gray, black and orange tabby markings.

  3. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
  4. He rolls on his back, flashes his tum and meows up a storm! After 15 minutes of that, he generally won’t let me out of his sight for at least a full day.

  5. Can your pet do any tricks?
  6. Does kitty modeling count? :) Or how about looking stylish in jewelry? Other than modeling, he’s not big into tricks. He does like to play fetch with El Hub, but that’s more of a game than a trick, and it has to be his idea.

  7. Does your pet like people food?
  8. He didn’t for the longest time. For years he was content with Fancy Feast in Gravy and Science Diet (and the occasional piece of sliced turkey), but over the past few months he’s become more brazen at the dinner table. Now I can’t leave any food unattended, because if I do he’ll jump on the table and explore. So far he’s employed this approach to taste test wheat bread, smoked salmon and yogurt. Sigh…

  9. Where does your pet like to sleep?
  10. In about 10 different places around the house. There’s at least one in every room. Lately, he’s all about sleeping on the treadmill, draped across El Hub’s stinky running shoes, at the foot of the bed, at the top of his cat tower in the living room, in the laundry basket (but only on top of clean clothes, which is weird considering how much he likes dirty shoes and socks) and in the bathroom sink.

    I wish he’d sleep on the bed with me at night, but he only does that once in a blue moon.

  11. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
  12. Possibly a new cat tower, because his current one is falling apart. Maybe that or a heated pet bed, but the kitty-sized ones I’ve seen all look too small for him. If I upgrade him to doggy-sized and he finds out, there will be hell to pay.

  13. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
  14. Oh, yes. Right now it’s the neighbor’s Russian Blue. Ever since Tabs caught him bogarting the catnip plant in the front yard, the two haven’t been on good terms.

  15. Where’s your pet at this very second?
  16. He’s standing up on my lap, with his body draped over my right arm. Kinda hard to tlype ligke thjis, but watcha gonna do? :)

  17. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
  18. He actually does! He likes to hide things, especially eyelash curlers, which he’ll bat around until he gets them good and stuck under a dresser. I’ve yet to catch him messing with my brushes, though (knock on wood).

    Indescribably Unique and Cute as a Teddy Bear

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    Jumps up on your legs, tail wagging, demanding pets and then she’d latch onto us like no tomorrow. At least, that’s what we’d think she’d do. We’ve never left her home alone for more than 6 hours!

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Sit, down, heel, paw (aka shake), stay (somewhat), place, dead dog, roll over, up (aka standing on hind legs), high five, touch and kisses (on her terms.) Zena’s Rule: Have food, will train.

    On any bed that’s available, the couch and the La-Z-Boy rocking recliner.

    Rabbits. Squirrels. Rodents of all kinds.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Sleeping in Dad’s bed, probably slowly kicking Dad off the bed. She IS a bed hog.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Um, yes. Have you seen the FB album of my destroyed makeup brushes? Yep, that’s her doing.

  4. Sadie says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    A rescued ex-stray, three-legged, black and white ball of hyperactivity and naughtiness. Who jumps on my head at 5am demanding breakfast.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    He pokes his head through the banisters from the landing and stalks my feet until I sit down, where he makes himself at home on my lap for as long as he can get away with.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    He can still get around pretty niftily even after losing his front right leg, and does all sorts of twisty turny things – so flexibility is probably his main talent!

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    He loves any kind of meat – there’s usually a bit of kabanos with his name on it in the fridge. And if we eat dinner on our laps, his head is usually in the plate before we know what’s happening!

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    In his bed on the landing, on my feet, on my chest, on my head, on my lap, on the blanket on the sofa, on a dining room chair… little man likes to sleep!

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    Some extra bits of meat and the discarded wrapping paper to play with. A kitty of simple pleasures.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    I’m pretty sure he does from his old street life days, but now he’s a pretty chilled out ‘live and let live’ kind of cat.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    At home, probably either sleeping or eating

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    No, he’s very restrained (and they’re hidden well out of reach!).

    4. Does your pet like people food? Cynder wants it but won’t eat it. Emmy is a rescue so she’s always in your plate.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep? Cynder sleeps in his bed on the loveseat in the bedroom, Emmy sleeps in the pillows with me.

Last Wk, Cynder ‘sniffed’ a little too close to the eyeshadow pigment and well, his grey facial markings was a little bronze for a day. lol..

  7. Ruchita says:

    Yay, I love the Sunday Pet Poll!

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    Mingus: A wild kitty from the tough streets of suburbia now living the domestic (spoiled) life.
    Ella: A sweet, lovable girl who loves to cuddle with her humans. Has a weakness for catnip.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    Neither Mingus or Ella are too different. When I’ve been away for a couple of days, my husband has been home to attend to their demands.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Mingus: He likes to play fetch with balls of paper. Before he got tired of Da Bird, he would do flips in the air trying to catch the feathers.
    Ella: Not really a trick, but she’ll give kisses by rubbing her nose against mine.

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Mingus: Yes, he gets very curious when I’m in the kitchen. He likes chicken, bacon, milk and yogurt. He is fascinated by cereal. Just today, he sat right next to me, staring, while I was eating my Cheerios. :-) Since he’s so darn cute, I gave him a little taste of milk.
    Ella: No interest in human food – which is good, b/c she’s a bit overweight.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    Mingus: He sleeps on the couch, or on one of his cat perches – he has one downstairs in the dining room and one in our bedroom.
    Ella: We converted a chair into a cat perch for her with a cushion and blanket that faces out the back window. She’ll sleep there, or in her cat bed. At night she’ll jump right up on me to sleep and then make her way to the foot of the bed. She’ll also sit with my husband when he’s on the couch.

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    No, not this year. I got them some new toys around Thanksgiving.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    Mingus: There are a couple of male strays that get him riled up. If they get too close to the window, he’ll make this awful growling/moaning sound.
    Ella: Unfortunately, she’s not always fond of Mingus. She’ll hiss and swat at him at times.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Mingus: He’s asleep on the couch.
    Ella: She’s asleep on her chair.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Mingus likes my tweezers, I think because they’re shiny. In the mornings, he’ll jump up on the bed (because he’s hungry) but he also likes to knock my glasses off the night stand.
    Ella has no interest. She prefers the natural, kitty grooming methods. Sometimes, she’ll lick my hand when I’m petting her.

  8. Megan says:

    Any chance to talk about my kitty! (Pepper meows and concurs.)

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)? 8 years, 10 lbs, torbie beauty with green eyes, bunny fur, and a thing for laps!
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip? She runs up to me, head butts, and sniffs me and the luggage. Then she remembers I left her for a few days (With a pet sitter! Whom she loves! THE INDIGNITY.), gets ticked off, and ignores me for a day. After that, I get lap snuggles and purrs.
    3. Can your pet do any tricks? Well, she knows the words “vet,” “treats,” “breakfast,” and “dinner.” So…kind of?
    4. Does your pet like people food? Well, except for the piece of onion-stuffing-free Thanksgiving turkey she got this year (she loved it) she’s on a people food-free diet. She keeps to her fish/chicken/kitty treats, and I keep to my cupcakes, and all is good.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep? She goes in phases. Lately it’s on her blanket in the bay window. Sometimes it’s in a box under a chair in the office. In my spot on the couch. She sleeps in her chosen spot for a week or two, then switches. I don’t get it, either.
    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays? Her food will be all fish and no chicken that day…and she gets all the boxes and wrapping paper! I’ll stuff her stocking with kitty treats, too.
    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies? My husband thinks he is. Except he secretly loves her.
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second? Hiding from my son by her food bowl. She’s done with her breakfast, but she knows perfectly well that Tommy’s not allowed by her food. Sanctuary.
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products? If I leave them out! An open makeup bag is inviting her to put her head in and sniff. If I leave tube glosses that roll out, she’ll paw and chase them, too.

    Basically, she is the cutest cat ever. Except Tabs and everyone else’s cutest cat ever, of course. :)

  9. Ines, Cha Cha & LeRoux says:

    Heya Karen! It’s been a long time!

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    ChaCha is a 12-pound, black Domestic Shorthair with a fangy smile, who thinks he’s overlord of teh hoomins. ChaCha was rescued off the streets when he was 2 months old.

    LeRoux is a 14-pound, ginger tabby Egyptian Mau mix who is insanely long & lean, and a willing minion of Lord ChaCha. LeRoux was taken in from a kitten mill where people were treating him horribly.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    ChaCha MIGHT look up at you and give you blinky kitty eye-kisses or an occasional rub/headbutt (but enthusiasm is not his thing unless he hasn’t been given his daily gravy yet), while LeRoux (the poor, confused cat) runs to the door like he’s a dog and meows up a storm, telling you about his day.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    ChaCha can sit on command, but you better have some food for him; LeRoux can do sit, up and turn-in-a-circle if you *pretend* to have food in your hand. They also occasionally play fetch, and bring toys to you to play with like dogs do.

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    ChaCha goes bonkers for cooked fish, creamy cheeses and beef, LeRoux will try just about anything – he’ll eat asparagus, mushrooms, all kinds of meats, cheese, muffins, bread and fish just to name a few things. LeRoux will physically sit on your lap while you’re eating dinner and often do the “I NEED DIS… O GOD I NEED DIS” thing while ChaCha sits and demands food with an imperious stare.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    LeRoux sleeps glued to his hoomins, or anywhere high up where he can see what’s going on. ChaCha loves his personal chair (he’ll give you a dirty look if you sit on it) and prefers to sleep where he can keep an eye on his hoomin slaves, rather than near them, although occasionally he’ll grace us with his presence.

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    They’re getting a scratching post and a jumbo bag of feline greenies!

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    ChaCha HATES the vet, who once had to give his bottom a very *personal* exam. I swear he remembers every time we go, even though it’s been over a year; he also doesn’t like other dogs very much. LeRoux holds no grudges, everyone is either a friend or is potential food (he has a very high prey drive, so birdies are unfortunately in the latter group).

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    ChaCha is curled up by the heater in the bathroom, where the hot water pipes warm the tiles. LeRoux is glued to my sister, draping himself across her legs while she studies for an exam!

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    When ChaCha doesn’t get immediate attention, he’s been known to knock stuff over intentionally. Quite a few of my compacts have been broken this way, while LeRoux is too scared of the various beauty tools to come too close when I’m doing my makeup. To him, an eyelash curler might as well be a medieval torture device, and so he stays well away (although he does like the bigger makeup brushes, he thinks they’re cat teasers).

  10. Stef Smith says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)? Two female black and white outside felines that hunt the heck out of gophers. One male black and white pit bull love muffin of a dog!
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip? The cats meow and follow us until we feed them, and the dog woo-woo-woo’s at us for lovin’s!
    3. Can your pet do any tricks? Hannibal the dog sits on command! The cats are really good at looking at my husband like he is a peon and they are his masters! The cats also are really good at taking a huge amount of abuse from love from our two daughters.
    4. Does your pet like people food? They only get meat, the cats loooooove it raw, and the dog eats it so fast that I don’t know if he actually tastes it.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep? I actually have no idea. They’re all outside pets, the dog is in the backyard, but there are a bunch of large Oleanders along the fence line and I think he sleeps under them, even though he has a very posh doghouse that he doesn’t ever use. The cats are a complete mystery, they go where they want!
    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays? The dog always gets a new chew toy and a big bone, and the cats will probably get a few toys.
    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies? Each other! The dog wants the cats, the cats know it, and taunt him!
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second? Dog is in the backyard, the cats? I don’t know.
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products? No, they are outside pets, not inside!

  12. Danielle says:

    1- I have two Golden Retrievers. Brinkley is the linebacker outside/teddy bear inside and Oakley is the softspoken wise, honor student. LOL
    2- By flipping out. I get tackled (almost) and if I have flown my travel pillow gets stolen (ripped from my grasp) and happily frolicked away to get destroyed. I think that’s a subliminal message.
    3- Lots, mostly when food is involved. “being dead”, shaking hands, high fiving…good stuff.
    4- Like? No. LOVE? YES.
    5.- On my legs. It’s painful. But sometimes on the bed, sometimes on their beds or rugs. Also, sometimes on my chest, because apparently I don’t need to breathe.
    6- Yes, big huge dog bones and obnoxious squeaker toys. And tennis balls.
    7- PAPER BAGS! They are nuts. Paper bags are their nemesis. Also, loud crashing noises and squirrels.
    8.- I imagine they are both sleeping on the couch, though I’m not home to verify the exact coordinates.
    9- Not on their own, but the second I put on hand lotion or lipgloss/lipbalm they want to lick it off. Talk about weird.

  13. Iris says:

    This suggestion may be interesting for you. I just got a doggie-size pet bed for only $15 at CVS for my 18 pounds cat and it works wonderful.

  14. Lisa says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)? Loud, whiny, stripey, and adorable. And very, very talkative.
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip? I can usually hear him yowling at me through the door when I come home, and he follows me around begging for attention for a few days after I get back.
    3. Can your pet do any tricks? He recently learned how to open the cabinet door where his food is stored, unfortunately. But no tricks on command.
    4. Does your pet like people food? Yes, very much! His favorites are eggs, cheese, avocado, squash, and bread. He will try just about anything. Once he actually snuck up to my plate, grabbed a piece of garlic naan, and dragged it off. He was pretty mad when I took it away.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep? Usually on the foot of the bed with us, but during the day, on the couch, at the base of his kitty tree, in the windowsill, or on my lap.
    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays? Nope, he’s already spoiled!
    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies? No, he’s mostly curious about the neighbors’ dogs.
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second? Trying to get into my backpack.
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products? He would bat a lipstick around, given the chance, but not really.

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    Feline THUG!
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    The “look”, then, “Oh….you’ve been gone”?
    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    I think it’s more a success than a trick…his back legs are paralyzed, but he can get up on almost anything he wants. He has tremendous muscles in his front legs (he looks like a kitty version of the “Hulk”), and he pulls himself up on beds, sofa, chairs and anything he can grip with his claws.
    4. Does your pet like people food?
    He isn’t interested in anything except his cat food.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    On my bed or next to a panel of the living room curtains. Sometimes he just sprawls out on his back in the middle of the floor and zonks out.

    Of course…toys!
    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    None…he rules!
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    I have no idea. He has secret places in this house known only to him.
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    He messes with anything he can see. “No, no, Barley” is the most commonly used phrase around here.

  17. Rebecca says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)? Abby is: adorable, stout, pound kitty turned diva, talkative, sweet, fluffy love bug.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip? She runs right up to us and rubs our legs, meows like nobodies business and purrs her little head off.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks? Not really but if I get down onto the floor with her and play “peek a boo” around a corner or the coffee table she will run up on me while I’m not looking and make her little “mer” noise and scare the crap out of me.

    4. Does your pet like people food? Depends on her mood but she will always eat cheese and whipped cream. She has also eaten Doritos, mushrooms and olives from a piece of pizza, crackers, hamburger…

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep? On her blankie on the rocking chair in our bedroom, the back of the couch, our laps or right up on me when I’m sleeping (but only right when I fall asleep and as I’m waking up, the rest of the night she’s on her chair.)

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays? Can’t even buy my hubby a present so no. But she did recently get some new mouse toys which she loves.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies? She only gets to go out into the backyard when we are watching her but when she sees the cat next door come outside she’s right up on the fence looking through the cracks. I’ve also seen her jam her little leg down a gopher hole like nobodies business.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second? I am sitting on the couch with my laptop and she is on the back of the couch right by my head purring her sweet little fluffy head off.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products? I don’t really have anything where she can get to it. I do however still have a MAC lip gelee with a tiny little tooth mark that didn’t go through the packaging courtesy of my old girl Kitty who is no longer with us.

  18. 1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    Calliope: long haired black and white lady with an outgoing personality and loads to say. Quite spoiled.
    Chloe: a tuxedo cat who’s incredibly shy, intelligent and curious, and only purrs for me. Hides and hisses at everyone else. Both rescue cats.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    Both are usually waiting at the top of the staircase for me, anxious for head rubs and the possibility of getting fed. When they realize I’m not going to feed them, they disappear.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Chloe’s getting good at opening doors and can catch flies in midair. Calliope can somehow get any human to do her bidding (like getting my mom to feed her at 5 am and open windows for her in December. In Boston!). Which is good, because she’s not the smartest cat in the world. Still has trouble understanding she can push on a door to open it!

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    No, although they’re both very nosy about my food. Calliope refuses to drink water unless it’s in a glass and the water is fresh.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    Beds! I’ve learned to sleep in the middle of my bed curled up because Calliope likes to sleep on my pillow and Chloe sprawls on the foot of the bed. They’ve also commandeered two chairs in the living room that are now permanently covered in fur.

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    My mom just bought them a cat bed, which I know they’ll ignore. Otherwise, they’ll get some canned tuna and some new catnip toys.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    They’re outdoor cats, so they sometimes fight with other cats. And any mouse, mole, or bird that enters the yard is fair game. For being such a spoiled princess, Calliope is a great hunter and brings us plenty of “gifts.”

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    I’m at work, but I’d bet money that Chloe’s asleep on my bed and Calliope is sleeping in the living room. Without their human servants to entertain them, they can be very lazy.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    They occasionally send an eyeliner flying under a table, but they’re pretty good about avoiding my makeup. Hairpins and water bottle caps are their most favorite things ever, though.

    Here’s a pic of them dressed up for Christmas! Note the defeat and anger in their eyes! :D http://www.flickr.com/photos/astylizedhysteria/6499283805/

  19. Maria says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    A rambunctious, too smart by far, 11 pound Shi-tzu with white, brown and gray patches, who truly believes he is a tiny human and should be part of all family discussions.
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    Much like Tabs, he barks up a storm and flops on his back for a well deserved welcome home belly rub.
    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    He plays tug of war with my stinky socks if that counts? He also plays fetch except he goes after the ball, but won’t bring it back to you. I think he believes since he caught the ball, it now belongs to him, so why bring it back? ^_^
    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Yuuup…everything from chicken breast, to turkey ham, apples, bananas, yogurt, buttered toast….you name it, he eats it.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    Hmm…so many places….the living room couch, the recliner, his own puppy bed, my mom’s bed and his preferred spot for spending the night….on top of my um….behind.
    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    A treat puzzle toy that I’m dying to see if he will figure out. Hehehehe!
    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    Men…aside from my father and uncle whom he sees regularly, my baby doesn’t want any other males around his territory.
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Napping on my mom’s bed.
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Thankfully no….although he did chew up a wood round hair brush, which I now have to hide from him so that he doesn’t keep using it as his chew toy.

  20. Karen F says:

    4. Does your pet like people food?

    Just about anywhere, but generally he likes to sleep on my chest if he can

    Yes! I have a little stocking for him and I got him a squeaky skunk toy, a tiger toy and a lion toy with bells on them!

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    I have a stuffed raccoon Webkinz that he just loves to torment!

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Sleeping on my arms and his tail keeps messing up my typing

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    He likes pencil shaped things so generally he tries to bat at or steal my eyeliner

  21. Evelyn says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    4 deranged chickens. Love strutting their stuff, idle-gossip and nibbling on corn when they’re not watching their waistlines.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    They all run straight at the back door clucking for food and lots of cuddles.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Lay awesome organic free-range eggs :)

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Yep – bacon rind being a particular favourite.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    In their nesting box, in a big pile of fall leaves, hay and grass clippings, all snuggled up together – cute!

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    All the xmas dinner scraps, they’ll be so happy :)

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    The neigbours cat and Penny the Currawong who steals all their food.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    In the veggie patch, de-catterpillaring my rocket (that’s Australian arugula for those who thought i might be conducting space experiments in my yard).

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Not directly – they always squawk to be let out in the mornings while i’m doing my make up to try to rush me!

  22. BeckBeck says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    Patches: 8 pounds of tabby goodness – or pure destruction, depending on what’s up!

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    She runs to the door to see who’s there (we have my in-laws come feed her when we go away, so half of me thinks she’s just checking to see if the feeders are here) and she always headbutts our suitcases.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    I doubt it. I’m not sure what kind of cat tricks I’d be looking for anyway.

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Yes, although she’s not allowed to eat it. She stole a crouton off a salad once when our backs were turned, and now we try not to leave food unattended; she’ll literally get right in your face if you’re eating ice cream, and no bowl of chips or popcorn is ever really safe from her inquisitive little nose.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    She rotates a couple regular spots – couch, loveseat, the desk chair in the guest room, sometimes the dining table chairs. She also occasionally likes to kick me out of my armchair so she can nap in it.

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    I found these adorable little goldfish catnip toys at Target. She loves catnip toys.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    She’s probably outlived them all – she was a street cat when she was young, then a shelter cat for over two years before she came to live with us.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Sitting on the couch with my husband, looking very interested in something he’s doing on his laptop.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    No – she doesn’t seem interested.

  23. Tessaa says:

    15lb tabby boy who is the perfect size, super adorable and meows like a girl kitty

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    the last time was quite a while ago but he hissed because he was scared

    3. Can your pet do any tricks? he’ s learning one.
    my bf’s brother gives him wet food 2x a week. and before he gets he has to stand on this cabinet run through it jump on the dryer then on the next level. Once he gets to that spot he says “shake a paw” and hes sorta been raising his paw on his own sometimes because he has done it every time he gets wet food.

    4. Does your pet like people food? OH YES. Aside from loving meat. He has a sweet tooth!! He likes nibs, cupcakes,muffins, ice cream and milk. Not that i give those to him.. he has been bad several times.. ate them on his own… and then trys to get more.

    yes.. i got him honeysuckle spray, a kong wobbler, mini kitty kong with kong stuffn and a cat it self groomer :3

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    mmm… are other cat Lucky we took her in because she is very old and didnt feel like it was right for her to fly over seas to be with her owners. He just eyes her down and she hisses and runs.

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    He is eating out of Luckys cat food dish..

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    He always sticks his head into my purse and into my makeup pouch.. i believe he has a secret love of makeup and is jealous

  24. Carly says:

    Farley is a 4-year-old Pug who loves food.
    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    He “Nascars.” He runs circles around our coffee table, whines, and jumps up and down.

    He sits and stays. He has a large vocabulary, so he knows a lot of commands.
    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Of course! The only thing he doesn’t like is the leafy part of celery. He even likes blueberries.
    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    Wherever we are. Mostly on the couch or on one of our beds.
    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    Probably a big bone. We already bought him PJs for Christmas.

    No. He loves Enrique.
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    With my stepdad at his apartment.

    Yes! He’s gotten into a makeup brush that was under the tree and meant for my mom. He gnawed it up.

  25. mn says:

    *** By the way, if you think Tabs will be stigmatized by a heated doggy size pet bed consider getting him a heated throw- saw them in this week’s Target circular. ***

    1. Describe your pet: Green eyed, brown oriental. Acts tough but is really a mama’s boy. Grouchy when woken up. Nickname = Zohan, as in , don’t mess with the Zohan.
    2. Pet’s respond after a long trip? Long trip or just out for coffee, he always flops over for belly rubs and meows a lot. I’ve noticed that when I come back from longer trips he is extra needy and will actually sleep closer to me, for example when I adopeted him he slept by my feet; when I returned from a week away he started sleeping by my waist and then when I returned from 3 days away he started sleeping by my head. Guess absence makes the kitty heart grow fonder.
    3. Pet tricks? Not sure if it qualifies as a trick but when I’m working at my desk he will stand up on his hind legs and tap my shoulder so that I can give him rub-rubs. He also will tap my eyeball in the morning to wake me up- how do they know to do that. I mean really, of all things, the eyeball?
    4. People food? He doesn’t hover when I eat but he will eat a bit of hamburger meat when I give him some. When his tummy is upset I give him baby food which he loves!
    5. Sleep? He sleeps curled up by my pillow (unlike my previous cat who slept next to my while resting his head on my shoulder- he was such a love bug).
    6. Holidays? Yes, I got him a flat squirrel and he already found it and started playing with it- guess he couldn’t wait until Xmas- now that I think about it it’s a bit perverse to get him a toy to attack which resembles the neighborhood wildlife.
    7. Enemies? I wouldn’t say it’s a sworn enemy but he does notice when the birds come to the window to chomp on birdseed. He is OK with the vacuum cleaner and ironing board now.
    8. Where’s your pet at this very second? Sleeping on the couch. Seriously, where else would he be?
    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products? Only ponytail holders when I let him- no real beauty products.

  26. nekosan says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    Phoenix: older grey kitty with chronic renal failure. Keeping his life good for as long as possible.
    Madeleine: stray calico cat from the backyard. ” Little Miss Gorgeous” and “The Mistress von Hisstress”
    Seeker: half Siamese cross-eyed stray cat.   Loves jumping up high and wrassling with his brother. 
    Finder: half Siamese stray cat, Seeker’s brother, big lovable galloot who’s 100% heart.  Has a goony eye from an old fighting scar.

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    Lots of begging for love and attention! Suitcases get a huge sniffing inspection, with several cats circling around.

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Hmmm… I’ve taught them all to beg for kitty treats – stand on hind legs and grab my hand with a paw,  no claws allowed.

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Phoenix: loves bread, cheese, sashimi, tuna, turkey.
    Madeleine: loves the concept, always begs, but then decides most things a disgusting and walks away. Likes yogurt.
    Seeker: tuna and sashimi.
    Finder: tuna and sashimi.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    At night: on the bed!  I used to read in bed with two pillows under my head, then yank one down and sleep with one, with the other open for the taking.  That pillow has been a permanent cat pillow for quite some time.  
    Our house has several bay windows, which are a big hit with all the cats.
    They also love the therma-kitty heating pads that I have scattered around (one per kitty, for a total of four).

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    Turkey scraps?  I bought them a new toy (neko fly), but gave it to them right away.

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    Phoenix: pill bottles, sub-Q fluids bag, and minty gack (aka phosphate binder). 
    Madeleine: any kitty that looks happy
    Seeker: neighbor kitty (Bunny)
    Finder: raccoon

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Phoenix: next to me on the sofa on the heaty pad.
    Madeleine: on my sweetie’s lap (on the sofa)
    Finder: on the laptop keyboard.  Bad boy.  (“But it’s warm!”)
    Seeker: in a cardboard box that’s inside another’s cardboard box.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Finder often jumps on top of them when I’m putting on mascara.  He has no comprehension that there are bad places to be, probably since he grew up outside.  Seeker has jumped on my makeup once or twice, but has learned not to.  Phoenix isn’t such a jumpy cat, and Madeleine is, uh, too plump to jump well.

  27. Amanda says:

    1. How would you describe your pet in a Twitter tweet (140 characters max)?
    My Shelley baby kitty, was named after Dr. Sheldon Cooper. He’s spoiled, and always wants to be held. He’s 4 months old and adorable as hell

    2. How does your pet respond when you get home after a long trip?
    I have not yet left him for a longer than a day.. But he wont sleep by himself and gets really lonely.. So I would just take him with me. :)

    3. Can your pet do any tricks?
    Just being adorable, while also being really mean.. haha.

    4. Does your pet like people food?
    Blackberry Pie, I know its not good for him and I won’t usually let him eat it.. But I can’t have it around him or else he does whatever he can to get into my plate.

    5. Where does your pet like to sleep?
    Curled up right next to me.. he wont sleep unless he’s touching me somehow! It’s so cute.

    6. Is your pet getting anything for the holidays?
    I gave him a bunch of toys for an early Christmas present.. But I’ll probably get him a kitty house for the holidays.. I wouldn’t want him to feel left out!

    7. Does your pet have any sworn enemies?
    Donkey, you know from Shrek? I took out my copy of Shrek I got when I was younger and watched it the other night and every time Donkey was on the screen, Shelley jumped up and started clawing at the t.v. it was hilarious!

    8. Where’s your pet at this very second?
    Running back and forth through the house, wondering when I’m going to go to bed with him.

    9. Does your pet ever mess with your beauty products?
    Always, he won’t let me put on makeup without trying to get it from me and somehow he got a bottle of nail polish off my nightstand like halfway under my mattress!
