The other day, I got an email from The Bump.
If you don’t know what that is, let me clue you in—it’s a website for mothers and mothers-to-be. ACK! I’m neither of those yet.
After working in the marketing world for a few years now, I could sort of figure out why I got the email. The Bump is connected to two other websites, The Knot (for newly married or engaged couples) and The Nest (for newly married or engaged couples that are making a home). I used The Knot to make our wedding website while we were engaged, so the company has my email address and tries to figure out at what point of my life I should be receiving which emails.
I guess they figure that The Bump is the next step in our lives. Slow your roll, The Bump. Slow…your…roll.
That was a long-winded way for me to get to the point(s) of this blog post:
- I don’t have a baby, nor am I pregnant. (Someday hopefully though!)
- I have a blog called The Kitten Kitchen. Duh, right? You’re reading this post right now.
- I love my kitchen. Duh x2. This blog is about stuff I make in the kitchen.
- I love cats. Duh x3. This blog is called The Kitten Kitchen and is thusly named because I have four cats, all of which are awesome and love to hang out with me while I’m making delicious foods in my kitchen.
- My “kittens” are the closest thing I have to a baby, but way easier because I can leave them home whenever I want to go drink wine and Child Protective Services won’t knock on my door.
I still don’t get the point of this blog post, Daniele.
Okay, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to help you get to know the Cusentino “babies,” since they’re a big part of our lives. They each have very strong personalities, which is why they were each eager to participate in my interviews for the blog. Yes, you read that last sentence correctly.
They’re also really excited because they got to try Kroger’s new pet food line called #Luvsome, for free, simply because I have this here blog called The Kitten Kitchen. We’ll get more into that later. Let’s enjoy some Q&A with a cat named Eleanor RigbyCat, top left in the photo below.
Q: State your name for the record, please.
A: Eleanor RigbyCat. And you are Captain Obvious. You just stated my name in the paragraph above. Sheesh. This is going to be a long interview.
Q: Chill, little girl. What are some of your favorite activities?
A: Sleeping, throwing up, blocking Chris from getting anywhere near you and obviously hating the three other disgusting boys that live here. Four, if you count Chris.
Q: Do you have any nicknames? If so, what are they?
A: Well, seeing that you are crazy and can’t just call me by my lawfully given name, of course I have nicknames. Where do I even begin? Ellie, Ells, Ellers, Riggs, Rigsby, Riggers, Rigsies, Buggs, Booshy, RiggaRoo, Ellie Roo, Rooby, Roobers, Roobs, Kitsies…ugh. This is disgusting. My name is Eleanor RigbyCat. Just call me Eleanor RigbyCat in this interview. Don’t embarrass me.
Q: I can’t help it you’re so freakin’ cute. Alright, I’ll try not to embarrass you. Next question. What’s your favorite food?
A: Wet food. I love the stuff. Know what else I love? That I can eat it and 10 minutes later throw it up on purpose so that you can have something useful to do.
Q: Thanks. So what did you think about that #LUVSOME canned cat food you tried last week?
A: Well, I thought it was pretty dang delicious, and it was nice of you to let me have some, considering I’m mostly on a bland, disgusting diet because of my kidney disease. I guess I should thank you for that small treat. But I won’t. Next question.
Q: Is there a famous cat that you view as a role model?
A: Hilarious. I think you should ask the famous cats why they are always trying to be like me.
Q: Anything else you want the audience to know?
A: While I do have an attitude, I also have one heck of a purr motor and wet nose. I like to use these things to get you to pay attention to me, and it always works. I have you eating out of the palm of my paw at all times of the day. And it’s pretty nice—because you’re my best friend and we were made for each other. Okay. Sappiness over. Give me more of that canned food.
And there you have it. That was Eleanor RigbyCat doing what she does best—pretending to have an attitude.
