Congratulations, lovely Loreena, on becoming Cat of the Week for the very first time! How does it feel to be a celebrity? Will your Mom have a COTW party for you?
I feel very very happy and honoured in being a COTW. Mom was sad and worried for other reasons ( I NEVER cause it, you Know,,,except if Im not feeling ok,what is rare) and this news makes she feel great as well. I have parties all days,so I guess I'll only get more hugs and kisses...
You're our first cat of the Week from Brazil. Can you tell us a bit about the city where you live and is your home right in the city or out in the suburbs? How far do you go when you're outdoors?
Yes me and mom were the first and many times only brazilians in many sites all over the world. We live in an average city near a BIG one ( São Paulo) Touristic city named Atibaia. You guys can google.And we live in the city,central part, but mom would love to be living in the country. I'm a good girl and keep my travels just in the backyard.All I need is there,I have trees and birds, piles of dry leaves... I could be far away - But I dont want it.Thats why mom allows me to be there, kids are not allowed,They dont know about life like me Mom is scared to dead something bad happening to us
When and how did you meet your Mom? Was it instant love or did it take some time for you both to get to know each other?
I addopted her!!! I chose her.She wanted me, but had no conditions at that moment I arrived. She always wanted a cat and never could, I was her first one.She calls me one angel, gift from heaven. I took me more than months to be accepted there and even so I just entered house the day kids were ready to born. I am a persistent girl and I finally get her forever - none can run from loving claws right in the hearth :-)
Mom has given you some nicknames that seem a bit strange. What are these nicknames? Does your Mom only use them when she's angry with you or does she use them as affectionate teasing?
Are all affectionated nicks.All of them have a meaning , that she tried to explain by translating those. Some make no sense anymore,as magrelinha ( I was very thin when I arrived) or gorda (I was pregnant of 6 ! ) Now I have many other nicks. Mom addapted songs for me as well...
Two beautiful grown-up daughters, Joy and Lucky, live with you. Did you have only two kittens in that litter and have you had any more since then? Do you have a good relationship with them? What can you tell us about their Dad? Do you ever see him these days?
I had 6 babies and that was my only litter.I was not supposed to have any litter but I was faster them mom. I fact my pregnancy was a complete surprise to all here, since I was almost a baby myself and did all in silence. 2 of my babies died at 8 /10 days old,2 others grow up was healthy white boys and were addopted at 3 months. Mom still think about those... My boyfriend is way for a long now, last time I saw him I was just spayed and he was with another girl black as me. I dont care,I have mom and my kids - and still care for them as they were babies,even being bigger them me- the keep respecting me :-)
Your Mom is very fond of Irish things and has even given you an Irish name. Does she play Irish music and do you like it? If you could travel to Ireland, what would you most like to see or do? How would you react if you met a leprechaun?
Mom is crazy about Irish legends,folk music and so.My name came from Loreena Mc Kennit and , yes, we listen to a lot of irish music ( all I could get here - if you folks like to sell me more ,we would love) Traveling to Ireland/UK would be great. I would not fear the leprechaun or any other kind of pixie, elf or gnome - mom has a big collection of and - believe - I already saw the real ones! Sometimes they play with me - mom cannot see they so she things Im going crazy Mom says she would buy lots of new stuff and maybe get a tattoo with a black cat, a shamrock and a gnome were in Ireland.
Please tell us about a typical day in your life. Do you spend much time outdoors? What do you like to do when you're indoors? Where do you sleep at night? Do you enjoy being petted and brushed?
I spend my days in the backyard - except when I decided I would prefer stay inside ( if its raining or I feel someone weird is coming) Outside I can sleep in the sun , chase bugs or play and climb trees By the time mom arrive home -about 5pm nowadays-I enter by myself OR Im convinced to.So we eat and stay together -or no.What we do depends on my mood - sometimes we play, sometimes I sleep I enjoy pets, accept to be bushed ( tooth as well) and using clothes for a while - for taking pics. But Lucky enjoys petting more than me, she BEGS for while mom is running after me for!
Loreena, you've been very sweet to answer all these questions and we thank you. There's just one more short one: can you tell us three or four words that best describe you?
I'm a furry angel.Mom is right about!
