I suppose I can now let the cat out of the bag I am olde furt of the month for the month February.
I love olde furts and the mates I've made since I joined. It is truly a great honor. I want to thank PixieBelle and the other olde furts for picking me.
I thought I better write about it in my dairy as not all my friends are olde furts.
Here is the interview I did if anyone is interested in reading it.
AN INTERVIEW WITH KA-ZAR!
PixieBelle: You're in the middle of summer now (in Australia), which makes many of us other Furts rather jealous! What are you doing in the warm weather that you especially enjoy?
Ka-zar: I have chair just outside the front door and when it nice and warm I love to sit in it and catch the sun rays. I also spend a lot of time outside keeping my Grandpa company while he reads the paper or a book.
P: Your Catster biography says you're a kitty who really enjoys human company - even the human kittens. Are you still playful with humans, or do you prefer just keeping quiet company with them?
K: I still love to play when I'm in the mood and it does take my humans by surprise a lot. I like to play with stress balls with them. I get them to roll them around for me and I hit them back to them. Mum reckons I still have my inner kitten.
P: MOL you are just helping them de-stress!
You are currently an only cat, but have you ever had any fur siblings?
K: I've always been an only cat.
P: Do you have any opportunities to hang out with other cats?
K: I don't get much interaction with other kitties unless it that orange stray that keeps coming around trying to claim my turf. Mum gets worried if we get in a fight that I will come off second best as I'm not good at the paw to paw combat.
P: You and your family have lived in a few different places. Which home have you liked best?
K: We lived in small country town in the middle of nowhere with the biggest backyard. I loved living there as they were plenty of places to wander and I was free go to where I wanted as long as I came in when I'm called.
But to me the best places I've lived are those where my family is. Because I love them very much. We've moved four times and they never gave up on me and I thank them for that as I could've been homeless at anytime.
P: I don't think they'd be proper family if they left you behind! But you're right, some kitties do have careless humans who would do that.
I notice you are a box-loving kitty. Do you have a favorite box, or will any box do?
K: I don't have favorite box. I just like to try out any boxes that are brought home by my humans. I think this started with our first move and it's something I've never lost.
P: Do you have any other favorite places or furniture, or a special hangout in your house?
K: I love hanging out in my mum's room. She's says it hasn't been her room for a long time and it's our room. It's nice and quiet and has a really comfortable bed to sleep on. I also like to sit in the windows at night and watch the wild life as mum won't let me out at night. Also in my mum's or grandparents' beds.
P: What does being an Olde Furt mean to you?
K: I love being a part of the Olde Furts community. It's nice to have friends my own age to share the good times and bad. The sad part of being a olde furt is when you have to say that final goodbye to a great mate. But they are never gone furever, they become your great angel mates. It's hard to put into words but I'll say this - Olde Furts means a lot to me.
P: Feel free to add anything else you want your fellow Olde Furts to know about your life!
K: Here is my gotcha story. My mum found me or I found my mum at the animal shelter when I was 8 weeks old. I was the runt of the litter and no one wanted me. I was a week from being sending to the bridge, and mum came to the shelter looking for a kitten.
As luck would have it I was the only kitten in the shelter at the time and the attendant showed me to mum. Mum picked me up and I started play-biting her fingers and looking at her with a "please take me home" look.
Mum reckons it was love at first bite and agreed to take me. I couldn't go home with her until I had my grapes stolen but two days later I was at my furever home. That was 13 1/2 years ago.
I just want to thank you for making me furt of the month I feel so honoured to have this honoured bestowed on me. I hope I live up to it.
P: I'd like to thank YOU for a fun interview, and for being such a loyal and friendly Olde Furt. I hope you enjoy your month in the spotlight! Remember that there's a Furt of the Month badge for you on the group's main page, that you can copy and put wherever you like.
I hope this finds my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send purrs to those doing it tough.
Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate

We really enjoyed getting to know more about you in your interview and are proud that you are our special friend. Toby and Josie
Terrific interview, Ka-zar! You are most eloquent. And heartiest congratulations for the cat-of-the-month honor.
I've been meaning to thank you for all the warmth you've been sending up here to us in the Northeast U.S. Winter is half over, and Mom has only had to have the snow thrower out twice. And she has yet to get out her heavy winter coat. One day this week it was almost 60 degrees! We know this is your doing, and we sure do appreciate it.
Great Interview Ka-zar and you represented us OFs well....love the grapes stolen...much more tasteful way to put that stressful time of our youth!
