A Chat with Mario!
I am so glad you stopped by today, because I have an extra-special treat for you! Today’s guest is fellow blogger and animal welfare advocate Mariodacat! You’re gonna love to hear how he went from shelter cat to sheltered life, so give it up everybody for Mario!!!!!
Rumpy: Oh Dog! Thanks so much for being my guest today Mario! Woo woo woo!Mario: Thank you Rumpy for wanting to interview me – a cat! I’m truly honored and surprised. I have always admired you since I first read your blog several months ago.
Rumpy: Thank you! *blush* Well how about we start by you telling us about you.
Mario: I am a 7-year-old, black and white, very friendly and loveable kitty. Some call us Tuxies, some call us Cow Kitties – take your pick. Oh, and at the age of 4 I became toothless because of stomatitis.
Rumpy: That’s scary! Are you doing OK now?
Mario: No worry though cuz I’m getting along just fine without any toothies. I can and do eat kibble.just like any other kitty,.
Rumpy: So who do you live with?
Mario: I live with M and D (my human mom and dad), who adopted me from the Humane Society in our city, where I had been living for 2 years.
Rumpy: Two years! That’s a long time!
Mario: I selected D to live with – M came along with the package deal. he he . When M & D entered the shelter for the first time, I walked right up to D, started rubbing on his pant legs, and purred. Once he picked me up, I really turned on the charm so he couldn’t resist.
Rumpy: Good work!
Mario: M finally agreed I was the one after visiting the shelter 3 times, so I was finally adopted. The day I went to my new home, I immediately jumped up in Dad’s lap when he was in his recliner. I didn’t even care what the rest of the house looked like or where any of my stuff was, I just knew I was home at last.
Rumpy: *sniff sniff* That is beautiful man! Now what kind of treats do they give you?
Mario: I’m not allowed many treats cuz M think’s I’m f.a.t.!
Mario: I’m supposedly 3 pounds overweight from where the vet lady wants me. Geeeesh – that’s mostly floof and muscle! When I do eat treats, it’s mostly a little fishie shaped treat made by Stewart that we get from the vet. I have to work for them tho by playing with my puzzle box and fishing (he he) them out of the box., It’s kinda fun. I try to con M into playing with the puzzle box and treats more than once a day, but she refuses. Sigh!
Rumpy: Humans *rolls eyes: Now you are out and about in the world of the Internet. What social media do you use?

Rumpy: That is so awesome! We’re gonna have to have a blog post about #Nipclub sometime. Now tell us, Mario, if you could be a dinosaur what kind would you be?
Mario: Ha ha – now why would I want to be a dinosaur when I’m living the purrfect life!
Quite frankly Rumpy, I don’t know nothing about dinos except that they are big, scary and eat little kitties! he he
Rumpy: I dunno, they haven’t met June Buggie! *giggles* Thanks so much for being my guest today Mario. You rock!
