for today's post, i thought i'd answer some of my fan mail. it's interesting, being one of the only cats i'm aware of who keep a regular blog. perhaps there are other pets who have tried, but i like posting regularly. i like sitting at the keyboard, and that it's called a "mouse" still makes me chuckle.
but on to today's question - this letter is from Mr. Whiskers, a Persian housecat from Des Moines, IA:
hello PRATT - my name is mister whiskers and i am from iowa. i wonder what kind of cat you are. some of the photos look like you are big and fluffy, but some make it seem like you are a standard domestic shorthair. can you clarify? also, what is your favorite kind of cat treat? sincerely, Mr. W.
mr. whiskers, thanks for dropping me a line. the last question is a simple one. "Pounce" makes the best treats available, as they come in a variety of flavors and fun shapes i like to crunch on. my brother punch is very picky, and will only eat specific ones (Pounce Baste'mmmms turkey and giblets flavor), but i will basically go for anything that comes my way. eric likes to make us reach for treats with our paws, and when he brushes our teeth, usually gives us a few each.
as for what kind of a cat i am, you're right - the pictures can be a little confusing. i don't really know if my breed has an official name, but i think i could be described as "medium fur". that is, not too long, not too short. i don't shed a whole lot, but if someone holds me for a few minutes, they'll certainly know i was there. i like it when eric rubs my tummy and pets my head. he likes to make me all fluffy. oh, and my tail can get all puffed up as well, and i use that as a natural defense mechanism, to scare off prowlers and large biting cats (like punch).
hope that answers your question. take care, and keep those paws warm up north in iowa this winter! regards, pratt
