I saw this great Q & A thing for parents and kids at Tracy’s blog (whose girls are such cuties 🙂 ) so I thought why not try it with my boys.
Here’s how it went…
Feliks: Bad Cat!
Boris: No, kitty, no.
2. What makes your mum happy?
Feliks: When she feeds us, pats us and we lay on her and stuff.
Boris: When we’re not naughty.
Feliks: When I accidentally pat her with my claws out.
Boris: When I play with her toes when she’s asleep. It scares her, I think. 4. How does your mum make you laugh?
Feliks: When she thinks she can get us to stop fighting.
Boris: Yeah. She makes funny noises.
5. What was your mum like as a child?
Feliks: Small like us but not as furry.
6. How old is your mum?
Feliks: In cat years?? Nearly 5.
Boris: Ancient. That’s how old she says we make her feel.
7. How tall is your mum?
Feliks: High enough to be a great perch.
Boris: *whispers* She’s a giant.
8. What is her favourite thing to do?
Feliks: Pat us.
Boris: Feed us.
9. What does your mum do when you’re not around?
Feliks & Boris: ????????????????
10. If your mum becomes famous, what will it be for?
Boris to Feliks: What does that mean? Is she leaving us because she’s become famous??
Feliks: *sigh* It’s a hypothetical question, doofus.
Boris: Oh… What does that mean?
Feliks: *rolls eyes* Just forget it. It’s not like she can become famous for looking after us anyway.
11. What is your mum really good at?
Feliks: Cleaning up after us.
Boris: Saying bad words. *giggle*
12. What is your mum not very good at?
Feliks: Not saying bad words.
Boris: Letting us play with the stuff we want to play with. You know like those white things that come in the little boxes with plastic on them. Man, they’re fun on the floor boards.
13. What does your mum do for her job?
Feliks: She reads a lot and plays with that long black thing she likes me to lean on sometimes. It has a lot of buttons and makes clicky sounds.
Boris: *tilts head* What’s a job?
14. What is your mum’s favourite food?
Feliks: You know; the food we like too.
15. What makes you proud of your mum?
Feliks: The way she cleans up and looks after us.
Boris: The amount of bad words she knows. *gigglesnort*
16. If your mum were a cartoon character, who would she be?
Boris to Feliks: What’s a cartoon??
Feliks: It’s those things that move on the big black scratching post.
17. What do you and your mum do together?
18. How are you and your mum the same?
Feliks: We both get annoyed with Boris.
Boris: We both like to sleep.
19. How are you and your mum different?
Feliks: I have a tail and she doesn’t.
Boris: I have ball..
Feliks: Not anymore you don’t genius.
20. How do you know your mum loves you?
Feliks: When she comes running when I start crying.
Boris: When she sighs and pats me.
21. Where is your mum’s favourite place to go?
Feliks & Boris: She likes it with us best.
My boys. *sigh* God luv ’em.
That’s just SO not true Sissy – while I was at your place today Boris told me Feliks had suggested if they give you all the right answers you might give them something really nice for tea!!!I’m not kidding, he said that they acted cute and said all the right stuff so you would be proud of them. Good cat, good cat, but sometimes just a little bit naughty!!!!
You shock me, Mumma. You really do. They’re so well behaved… not.
I think this is a good reason why you need to come off the drugs and alcohol, Kris!Lol!I daren’t do this with my kids, except maybe eldest daughter cos I know she’ll be nice about me!
Do you reckon I was hallucinating then, Jen?? You could be right.Although Mumma’s comments show some of the family are capable of cat-whispering… either that or we’re insane. *gigglesnort*
Aww, they’re so cute. My kid is a single one, and she’s too much of a princess to let any others come along.
LOL. My girl, who passed away last year after allowing me to share a home with her for 15 1/2 years, sounds exactly like yours, Sean.Having two boys from the same litter is enough to drive anyone to drink though! Cute?? Ha! *heading off to get another glass of whine*
That is just so adorable. They are quite the characters.
They’re not so adorable when they wake you up at FIVE AM! *mutter, mutter*
ooh just like real kids!Actually mine have started being more reasonable and getting up at 6am. Every. Bloody. Day.Oh, the joys of parenthood.
Yes, dammit.6am every day?? *shudders*Oh well, just think of fun you’ll have getting them back when they’re teenagers and they try to sleep in. A lot of stuff comes back and bites you on the arse when you’re a teenager. Or so I’ve heard since I was all that was sweetness and light myself. 🙂
Mine take after my daughter and like to sleep in. Getting kid or cats out of the bed in the morning requires a crow bar at times. Guess Canadian cats (and kids) are just inherently lazy. 🙂 I’m the parent who for 13 years has had to wake my child on Christmas morning because its 9:00 and she’s still out cold.
But… but… Tam, it’s Christmas. Santa’s been and there’s loot. Free stuff! How can she sleep?? That’s just wrong.I had to leave my desk for a moment due to mayhem at the back of the house. What did I find but a soggy mess of cat biscuits and water as well as the inside of one of those microwave boiled egg things that obviously makes a good soccer ball for boy kittens. *sigh* The little shites.
