What are your pets’ names, and how old are they?

Sascha is 12 and Maggie is probably 16. I’m not sure because I got her third-hand.

What kind of pets are they?

They are called domestic shorthaired cats.

Describe the day you got your pets.

When I got Sascha, I went to the vet because I wanted a black-and-white cat, and there she was. She was about ten months old.

I got Maggie because I went to the supermarket and met a woman who was a cat rescuer, and she said, “We have this cat who needs a home. And so I got a cat.”

Do they get along?

No. When I brought the second cat home, the first one said, “I want to be an only cat.” They’ve gotten a lot better, though.

How would you describe your pets in three words?

Sascha is a couch potato. She’s very superior, like a queen. She’s very predictable.

Maggie is unpredictable, all over the place, and wants to be with me every minute that I am at home.

Do you celebrate their birthdays? If so, how?

I know Sascha’s birthday, which is Valentine’s birthday. I don’t know Maggie’s. Every day is a birthday for those cats!

Do they know any tricks?

They know how to get me to give them treats. They will bother me until I give them a treat. I think they have me trained. They know some commands.

Describe a time your pets were really smart.

Cats are smart because they know how to get everything done for them. They know the word “up.” But you have to remember that I can say the command, and then they have to think about it. They know the word “out.” They know the word “eat,” absolutely. They know the word “move.”

Other than that, they have me well trained.
