Answer Your Cat's Question Day

So apparently it's Answer Your Cat's Question Day and my mum didn't tell me about it (actually, she didn't know about it, either).

Now, if I can catch her attention, we will begin the interview.

Come on, Mum, stop staring at your laptop and listen to me.
Athena: Mum, I've got some questions for you.
Marie: Ok, Athena. I'm listening. Ask away.

Athena: Why do you keep staring at the laptop all day, anyway?
Marie: You know why, sweetie. I have to work so I can give you a good life.

Athena: I already have a good life.
Marie: I want to make it even better. Besides, what else can I do when you're asleep? I get bored easily.

Athena: Sleep more. It works for me.
Marie: Yes, I wish I could!

Athena: What is so interesting on that box in the corner of the room with the little people moving about in it that you  like to watch at night?
Marie: It's a television, Athena. I watch because I'm bored and am usually too tired to do anything else by then.

Athena: Why do you watch other kitties on-line and on Animal Planet? Am I not enough for you?
Marie: Oh, Athena, baby, you know you are my world and I love you very much. But I enjoy looking at other kitties and learning about them. I do it so I can understand the cat world better. I find it so interesting and that's one thing I don't watch because I'm bored!

Athena: Why can't you play with me all day?
Marie: Because I'm getting older and tire easily, sweetie. Anyway, I play with you a lot, it's just that you seem to prefer sleeping most of the day!

Athena: Why do you drink such smelly drinks like coffee and wine?
Marie: Because I like them. One wakes me up and keeps me going, and the other helps me unwind after a stressful day. I know I should drink more water like you, but I can't.

Athena: Why do you nod your head in time to the music in your iPod when you're writing? When I sit on our bed and watch you from behind you look so funny headbanging that I want to jump on your head.
Marie: I listen to music through headphones so as not to disturb you, Athena. Just don't jump on my head, OK? Your poor old mum might have a heart attack, and who else will look after you so well? Now, get back to sleep! You are due another nap now, aren't you?

Athena: Mum, I just wanna say that I knew you were my mum as soon as you walked through the door of the cat shelter and I love you so much. You are the best mum in the whole world!
Marie: I love you too, my sweet pretty girl. I knew you would be my baby as soon as I touched your paw and looked into your beautiful eyes. Love ya, xxxx

Awwww, what a sweet ending to the Q&As!

BTW, our human's on board with yours re: coffee and alcohol (in our human's case the harder stuff--lol).

I didn't know it was answer your cat's questions day!! Mine would be"why didn't you tell me about answer your cat's questions day? MOL Lovely questions and answers :) xx

Your human gave some pretty good answers, Athena! (Although I think some of them are excuses, not exactly answers. ;-))

Of course you are the best Mom ever, and Athena KNEW IT right away!

Aren't you just the luckiest cat - like I am with Mum. I get night time cuddles, I get plenty to eat and it sure as heck beats living rough!

Athena, you didn't have any hard questions for your mom and she answered every one of them. We can tell by this that you two do love each other very much and definitely belong with each other. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Oh Athena, what a very special relationship you and your Mum have, that is just wonderful. We really enjoyed all your questions and learning more about you. We are also very happy to be able to comment on your blog now as we aren't on Google+. We look forward to joining all your future Caturday Art Blog Hops too as we love that you are doing this!

Lovely Q & A ! Mum has totally missed the Cat's Questions Day.... Purrs

Ugh! Gag! Was such mushiness necessary? I enjoyed the questions though. TW didn’t take the answers seriously so a little bitey was in order.
