Welcome to New Bloggy Cat’s Birthday Party!

Japanese Happy Cat

My recent interview with Mewsic Radio Station:

Q: What is a blog and why do you blog, New Bloggy Cat?
A: A blog is a Big Lesson On Giving. Having a blog is a fun way to spread some love and laughter. Besides, it a great way to exercise my brain cells and helps keep my brain young.

Q: What makes you different from other cats?
A: Well, I enjoy blogging and I love dogs. Yes, all dogs from Great Danes to Chihuahuas. Even the ones that slobber.
Love You Puppy

Q: What do you blog about?
A: I blog about things that matter like love, laughter, happiness and peace.

Q: What do you like most about blogging?
A: The best part is meeting other furry friends from around the world. I enjoy reading about their fun-adventures and their eccentric humans. Just to name a few of my furry friends here:
Roxy & Tigerlino
Butterfly & Cricket
Millie & Pearl
Vivian & Maisie
Meisie & Liefie (who live with a human working in Dubai called Ger – short for Tigger).

I have also met a camel from Turkey. Uncle Spike is his name and blogging is his game He wrote a guest post for me last month on ‘What makes a camel happy?’. I bet you’ll never look at a camel the same way again after reading it.

Q: Do you read any human blogs?
A: Of course, there are so many awesome blogs to choose from. But it’s tough trying to keep up with the reading. You see, I need my daily naps and that leave me with very little time to read. Some of the blogs I’ve been following are:
Kintal
Belsbror
The Good, Bad and Ludicrous
Cindy Knoke
Jennifer’s Journal
Living, Learning & Letting go
Teacher as Transformer
Love, Happiness & Peace
Pictures on the web
Penguin Ponderings
K’Clips

Q: Do you think humans are complicated?
A: Yes, humans are the most complicated species on earth. They tend to put their values in the wrong things. I can’t understand why they work such long hours and buy stuff they don’t need. I believe the biggest confusion humans have is what they want versus what they need.

Q: What is your advice to humans?
A: Eat more fish, take more naps, think happy and laugh heartily!

Cheerful Cat Face
Thanks everyone for coming to my party! Be safe and keep smiling!

Guest Post: What makes a camel happy?

“A camel is usually known as a grumpy animal, so what makes a camel happy?”

Sit back and enjoy this hilarious story written by one of my favourite bloggers. ٩(˘◡˘)۶

Well here I am, Uncle Spike, popping up on this wonderful blog as guest writer for a day, after Pat, your host, was the recent winner of a ‘Guess What’ photo-image post on my blog.

Camels, hmm, yes… we are known to be rather grumpy old farts, I have to admit. I mean, wouldn’t you be, plodding around under the heat of the desert, with nuffink to dangle your lips into for sustenance for days on end? Or worse still, some of us end up carting round overweight pink tourists all day long; who seem to like being decorated in nothing more than an ill-fitting bikini top, garish shorts, a camera strung around their scrawny necks, screeching with raucous laughter and wearing an embarrassing sunhat??

Spike 01

Talking of grumpy camels, here’s one of my cousins who lives in Tunisia, who goes by the name of “Bryan ‘The Camel’ Jones” (don’t ask me why, he’s been out in the desert for too long, his brains are addled I guess)… He’s a definite grump though, but probably with good reason – you see, lugging around bundles of crops all day under the sun, or pulling that old plough (plow) must play havoc with his old bones, so yeah, he has every right to be a grump me thinks.

Spike 02

But we are not all grumpy. My third cousin, twice removed, “Esmeralda”, has a wicked sense of fun, especially in her second hump – you see, her first hump contains her sensibility, or so she says anyhow. But Esmeralda is a cutie, and you gotta admit, she was born to flash that killer grin, yeah?

Spike 03

And then we have my “Uncle Boz”. He’s a tough old brute, but in a nice way I mean. He works on a farm just north of Nakuru, which is just a tad south of the equator in Kenya, East Africa. He can be a bit grumpy, or so my Aunt says. Here he is by the way, wearing his least grumpy smile when we visited him last year to share in a family New Year.

Spike 04

But what about me, “Uncle Spike”? Well, I’m half grumpy, half bonkers I think you could say. I have my off days, as does any camel, but on the whole, I’m a happy middle-aged camel, living here in southwest Turkey on a fruit farm. I know, I know, not every camel’s dream job, right? But it’s steady work, and although the summers are hot here, around 40-45 every day (or 104-113 if you are from the States), the winters are mild, but soggy, and I’ve found that my flabby old feet do rather well on the porous rocky mountainous terrain here when the ground is soaked like a sponge dropped into a bath.

Spike 05

But I’ll tell you what makes me really happy, ‘life’. I’m a happy camel who loves life, and now I’m a blogger, fancy that? So yeah, we can be grumps or funsters… Life as a camel is a mixed bag, you gotta admit…!

Thanks for your hospitality Pat, and hope my debt is repaid now.

Joke of the day – Baby camel

images (2)

A mother and baby camel are talking one day when the baby camel asks, “Mom, why have I got these huge three-toe feet?” The mother replies, “Well son, when we trek across the desert your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand.” “OK,” said the son.

A few minutes later the son asks, “Mom, why have I got these great long eyelashes?” “They are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert.” “Thanks Mom,” replies the son.

After a short while, the son returns and asks, “Mom, why have I got these great big humps on my back??” The mother, now a little impatient with the boy replies, “They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert, so we can go without drinking for long periods.”

“That’s great Mom, so we have huge feet to stop us sinking, and long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes and these humps to store water, but Mom…” “Yes, son?” “Why are we in San Diego zoo?”
