Follow 5 Friday

Hello everyone. It's been another great week and were able to over 50 cats to our main list. If you haven't been there for a while you should stop by, I'm sure you would find a couple of cool cats to add to your follow list. Speaking of cool cats, we have a group of wonderful kitties to share with you tonight.

Used by Permission LadyFuzz


Or first guest tonight is LadyFuzz, who we've had the privilege of knowing for a while, here on twitter.


How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

Oh, now that's a story. When I was a just-weaned kitten, I showed up at the house in the country where Mama's parents live - and threw myself at their back screen door just the way their last cat used to, years before. Startled them fluff-tailed by doing that! Grandpa chased me off the porch then - and threw water at me through the kitchen window when I tried to say "hello" the next morning!

He and Mama were working in the same place back then, so when he got in that day he told her all about the crazy kitten hanging around. Mama called Grandma and said go ahead and feed me, she'd be there at lunchtime to pick me up. She did, and took me right back to her apartment. Since then I've gone on two loooooong cross-country drives with her, lived with her in two different states and five apartments, and finally settled in the house where we live now.

What do you call the humans you live with?

My human is Mama. (Except when she's trying to give me a pill, in which case I call her something untranslateable from the original feline.) The other house-humans are honorary moms.

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?

Mama has a lot of silly nicknames for me - Boo (because when I was little I used to hide under furniture and grab ankles), Bootiful, BooBoo Fett, LadyFuzz, Fuzzbutt.

Also, when she "narrates" for me, I have a Southern accent for some reason, despite having been born and bred in Michigan and now living in Pennsylvania. It's because of an old Looney Tunes cartoon phrase that Mama decided fits me - "Cheese! I just love cheese, really I do!"

I share the house and house-humans with three other felines: Kiri (a 12-year-old male Egyptian Mau), Tavi (an 8-year-old male brown tiger), and Hanabi (a 3 or 4-year-old female calico).

How about some of the very first felines I followed on Twitter: @Ghlaghghee, @DaisyCurlyCat, @mai_lyn, @Daphnethecat, and @dahliapkitten. =^~,o^=

Used with Permission d'ArtanganRumblepurr


We haven't known our second kitty very long, but Rumblepurr has proven to be one very adorable kitten.


How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

Mummy asked daddy for TWO years if she could have me (she says she was just asking for a cat, but I know she was really waiting for me to be born) Daddy said yes, and mummy looked all over New Zealand before she and daddy decided on me! They flew me over from my breeder on the South Island, MightyQuinn Maine Coons, and now I love living in the North Island!

What do you call the humans you live with?

Mummy and daddy.

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?

Mummy says there is a story with my name. Daddy insisted that the second cat in the house would be named d'Artangan. When they saw my photo from the breeder, they just knew I was perfect for them . When I came to live with them, mummy gave me my last name. She says that I am Rumblepurr in name and nature - I'm just so happy all the time!

I'm really happiest when big brother pays attention to me. He's my best buddy, and I want to be just like him when I grow up (even if he is a Ragdoll!) I also lovebeing up REAL HIGH!!

One of our newest friends is KitschKat who comes from a big family and has many stories to tell.

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)

In July 2002, I got rescued from Death Row at a shelter in New Haven, CT. I was there for three months and no one wanted me. My Mom volunteered to take me so I wouldn't get killed. She took me in as a foster. She was supposed to get a different kitty, but that kitty got really sick, so she got to have me, instead. When I got to her house, I wasn't feeling too good. I got really sick, too. I lost 3 pounds in a few weeks. I tried to be brave, but I eventually hid because I was so sick. I didn't want anyone to find me. My Mom searched for me and she realized I was sick so she took me to two Vets. One was really bad. He hurt me a lot, but I was too sick to fight. He put needles in me and gave me medicine. It took a long time, but I got better and finally went to my foster Mom's home. She made sure I was OK and did a lot to save my life. I gained weight back and my fur filled in really well. They shaved me down at the Shelter and everyone thought I had short fur. Boy, did I surprise them! My Mom's nickname for me is: Super Pouffy.

My Mom fell in love with me and adopted me on Christmas Day. I knew it. I had her when I first saw her look at me. I am a cutie.

What do you call the humans you live with?

Meow!

Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?

I live with SIX other cats. I'm pretty much the boss of all of them, except for Bob Dole. He came here two years ago after someone died. Bob's bossy, but we get along ok as long as he doesn't try to rub up on me. Bob's cool for an old dude. Also. my Mom writes funny stories about me and my bratty siblings on http://www.coveredincathair.com Some times she posts stuff about cats that other people should know so it helps them keeps their cats safe and healthy. I think that's really nice of her to help out as long as she gives me more attention than that BLOG of hers. Oh, and my mom made a group photo pool for me on Flickr! You can join us, too...if you're FLUFFY! http://www.flickr.com/groups/superpouffy/

Our final guest this week is no stranger to twitter. He is a cats cat who works for his human as a a spokes kitty and model. I am very pleased to be able to let my pal BrewskieButt share a little more about himself.

How did you find your forever home? (Or how did it find you?)



A lady that was a school teacher picked me up on the side of the road when I was about 3-4 months old and took me to her classroom to find me a family. One of her students was the daughter of my person’s coworker, and the coworker told my person about me. It just so happens that my person was looking for a young kitty like me! She came to the school and picked me up. As much as I enjoyed those little humans in the classroom, I was SOOOOOO happy to find my forever family!

There were two other cats at my new home at the time, Slick and Noah. Slick was 9 at the time and had recently lost her lifelong companion, Bub, who had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. My person got Noah, who was the same age as me, to keep Slick company, but he was pretty rough with her. I proved to be a nice diversion for Noah, and we became best buds instantly. Slick has never really cared for either of us, and the feeling is mutual.

Who is another cat in our home that joined us last year. He is actually Noah’s brother, but he lived with my person’s mother for awhile until she had to go to a nursing home. Noah, Who and I are great pals. Of course, Slick doesn’t like Who any more than she does Noah and me.



What do you call the humans you live with?



I just have one human. Sometimes I call her “Mom”, sometimes “my person”. “Mom” is shorter to tweet and easier to fit into Twitter’s 140 character limit, but it sometimes throws my followers that aren’t anipals, so I use both. I also call her BZTAT, her artist name, or @BZTAT, which is her Twitter account name. She doesn’t Tweet as much as I do, though, because, well, I take up all the computer time, according to her…



Is there anything else you would like your twitter pals to know?



My nickname is “The Brew”, and I call all my Twitter and Facebook followers “The Brew’s Posse”. My Posse is full of the BEST anipals and Tweeple a cat can find!!!

I am a model for my person, mom, BZTAT, who is an artist, and I sometimes post on her blog http://bztat.blogspot.com . I am also the Official Spokescat for Art Adventures Studios (http://artadventuresstudios.com), a job that I take very seriously. BZTAT loves to paint critters, so she really enjoys all my anipals. She is working on a series of Twitter Critter portraits. She also has a special offer on pet portraits for the month of March 2009 for anyone in the Brew’s Posse! You can read about it here: http://bztat.blogspot.com/2009/02/news-flash-from-brewskie-butt-pet.html. Hurry if yer interested—must be arranged by March 31, 2009.



Recommend 5 of your twitter friends to our readers:

Only 5??? Well, it goes without saying that I would recommend the great @OscarThCat, whom I am really hoping will continue to drink from his fancy fountain and gain back the weight he lost during his recent illness. You are the KING among cats, O, so please, take good care of yerself!

There are lotsa lady cats that have really caught my fancy after all the dancing at the cat party and the paw pawty this week. To be a true gentleman, I will not name them, as then I might leave someone out and hurt their feelings. Instead, I will recommend some non-feline friends to avoid any “cattiness”. Some cool pooches are: the smiling @LouPeb; the regal (ahem)@Duke_Richard_II; and @louloupants, who had the funniest and most original pawty hat for St. Patrick’s Day! @CaplinROUS is perhaps the most unusual, yet cool and smooth critter on Twitter, and @RainyTheHorse is the guy who got us all comfortable with using the words “manure pile” and “#poop” on Twitter. He’s still miffed that his human took off with the pile he had been working on for such a long time.
