Hope you're all well and having a great weekend! I've finally got a weekend off which I'm so excited about. Unfortunately I'm completely skint though, so I won't be doing any fun stuff (like spending money). Instead I will be going down the gym and blogging, which isn't that bad either I suppose haha!
Yesterday the lovely Shona from FreshBeautyXOX tweeted me and asked me to do the Furry Friend Tag. I love animals and whenever anyone blogs about their pets I always read the post, so as soon as I saw Shona's post I knew I had to do the tag too! Here are all the questions and my answers. Enjoy ☺
1. What is your pets name?
My pet is called Billie.
2. When did you get Billie?
I got Billie when she was 8 weeks old in June 2012.
3. What is something that Billie does that annoys you?
The only thing that Billie does that really annoys me is that she likes to go roaming. If I let her out in the garden, she doesn't just stay in the garden. She likes to go for a wander and I panic a bit when I look out of the window and can't see her. Having said that, she is a really good cat and when I call her, she does return, but I would still prefer it if she didn't roam.
4. What type of breed is Billie?
Billie is a random bred domestic medium hair cat. A lot of people ask if she's a pedigree when they meet her because she looks quite posh, but she really is just a moggie.
5. Has Billie ever had a near death experience?
Thankfully Billie has not had a near death experience. One time however she did get stung by a bee and her paw swelled up massively. I called the vet who advised me to give her half a Piriton tablet which I did and the swelling went down after about 2 days. I felt sorry for her, even though she did look quite funny with her swollen paw!
6. Does Billie know any tricks?
No not really; she's not a dog.
7. Does Billie like to snuggle?
No Billie doesn't like to snuggle and she is certainly no lap cat. She'll come and cuddle up next to me for a stroke in the morning, but that's about as far as it goes and everything always has to be on her terms.
8. Where did you get Billie?
I used to work with a girl whose cat had kittens. My cat Jessie had died the year before, and I had no intentions of getting another cat. Actually I really want a dog. However, I did go around to my colleagues house to look at the kittens. Billie has the exact same white markings (white paws and a white bib) which my cat Jessie had, which is why I decided to adopt Billie.
9. Does Billie get along with other cats?
Yes Billie gets along with other cats. Billie actually gets along with everyone, she's so friendly!
10. Does Billie get along with strangers?
Again, yes. I have yet to meet anyone Billie doesn't like.
11. How much does Billie weigh?
No idea. Less than me that's for sure anyway.
12. Do you ever dress Billie up?
No, I think dressing up pets is stupid. (No offence).
13. Has Billie ever tried to run away?
Last summer she snuk out of the window one night and didn't come back till the next morning. We always keep her indoors at night so she wasn't supposed to do that. When she returned, she was limping and had obviously hurt her paw on her adventure, so we took her to the vet. Luckily it was just a sprain and she hadn't broken anything.
11. How did you come up with Billie's name?
I live with my brother and he chose the name as part of the deal of getting another cat. He says she's named after the Michael Jackson song Billie Jean, so God only know what he'll call his children.
12. How much does Billie mean to you on a scale of 1-10?
I hope you've enjoyed reading this post and finding out more about Billie! Thanks again Shona for tagging me, and if you're a pet owner, I'd love it if you did this post too (in particular if you own a staffie...)
