We are all involved in the blogging of Crotchety Cougars so we shall all take turns answering the questions.
Why Did You Start Blogging?
Angel Phoebe and I started up the blog because there was a need for us female felines 15 and over to vent our feelings and generally enjoy each other.
What Keeps You Going And Motivated?
AMBER: You mean where do I get ideas and why do I want to share them? Ideas come from everyday living, ideas that pop into my noggin that make me smile and I figure other peeps would get a smile too. Life can be very serious….let’s laugh at ourselves.
What Is Your Weirdest Habit?
SASHA: I don’t have weird habits. I’m perfect. However, I do turn around 3 times before I lie down but so does Kali. I guess I’m a wee bit superstitious. This is good…many a kitty has been lost to snakes because they collapsed on a snake pit. mol
What Is Your Favorite Cuisine?
BINGA: Now, you’re talkin’! My favourite foods. Well, I love beef so bring on the roasts. I prefer my steaks and roasts sliced thin so I don’t have to chew too much. No need to waste my energy. When I was a yungun’ I could saw through a raw brisket in no time. I’m pickier now.
What Are The First Three Things You Notice In A Person?
BINKY: That’s an easy question. Right away I notice if they laugh. A happy person is usually a kind person. Does this peep talk a lot? I want to be with someone who will let me talk and express myself not someone that yatters constantly. Does this peep have treats? Always a great way to break the ice is to offer some treats.
How Do You Deal With Negative Comments Of The People About Your Appearance Or Anything Else?
ALLIE: Peeps don’t say anything nasty about my appearance…..I’m beautiful. They may think I’m snooty, no not snotty…snooty, nose in the air, you know what I mean. That’s because they don’t know me. The worst thing I’ve been called is furry face. I can live with that description.
What Is The Meaning Of Your Name?
SARABI: The meaning of Sarabi is Mirage. The origin of the name Sarabi is Swahili. This is the culture in which the name originated, or in the case of a word, the language. Mother character in the Disney animated movie “Lion King”
I am but a mirage…mew, mew. Now, the name Crotchety Cougars was the brain child of Kali. The name says it all…we are crotchety and we’ve earned the right and we’re cougars. We are older kitties that appreciate the swinging life of some man cats but we’re very picky. mol
What Is Your Goal In Life?
MADI: My goal in life has changed from when I was a yungun’. When I was a wee one I wanted all things for me. Treats and toys would make me happy. Now I want to enjoy my friends in Crotchety Cougars and cuddle with mom.
What Is Your Job Or Jobs?
ALI: Heavens, I don’t work. The only work I do is providing a warm and lovely atmosphere at home for my mom when she comes home from work. That can be tough some days.
Do You Have A Pet And If So, What Is Your Pet Or Pets?
BUDDY: Why yes, I do have a pet. My younger brother is my pet. We call him Einstein or Einey. He is a yungun’ and has lots to learn so I try to teach him. I’ve found the best teacher for Einey is experience. The lesson sticks more this way. Lordy me, I’m just too sexy for words. mol
What About Yourself Would You Like To change?
KIT: No way would I change. Hmmm…well I could do without the the health problems I have. Even the illness is me and makes up my personality so I would say…I am what I am so get used to it.
