You Have Questions, I Have Answers!

Thanks ever so much for all your great questions! I will answer your questions in two or three parts, okay? This will be fun!

How we were gotted:
My Mommeh got me from a Devon Rex breeder. The funny thing is, the breeder was almost across the street from where she lived at the time! It is the same breeder that my sister Pixie came from. As soon as my Mommeh saw me, she knew I would be hers forever.

Harley was borned in a shelter to a feral mamacat who was there to be spayed and released. Since the mamacat was found to be full-term, the bebbehs were delivered, and Harley was one of them! He had been at the shelter my Mommeh used to volunteer at for over 6 months, and when Pixie had to go to the Bridge, Harley came home to live with me forever.

When Harley joined our family, he was very used to being around lots of other cats because of his time at the shelter. So even though I hissed and growled at him, he would slowly back away, and sit quietly next to me. My Mommeh said he had good social skills. Now that we have been together a long time, Harley is always jumping on me and chasing me around and trying to play rough. That makes me mad! Most of the time, we peacefully coexist, but we do not snuggle together.
Me and Harley during one of our early meetings

Our Habits:
I am a lap cat, and love to sit on my Mommeh's lap. Harley has just recently decided he enjoys sitting on laps, too! Sometimes both of us will try to sit on her lap at the same time. This also makes me mad!

I always sleep in the big people bed at night. Sometimes I will spend hours kneading and purring at night, and sometimes I try to sleep across my Mommeh's neck. She thinks I am trying to strangle her, but I just like to be close. Harley has recently decided he wants to sleep on the bed, too. This makes me mad!

I have not gone strollering in a LONG time. Now that my Mommeh is working, she does not have as much time to take me Outside. I love strollering, and look all around at the birds and bugs and cars and trees. I liked it right away! Harley does not enjoy strollering as much as I do; he gets a little bit nervous and cries. Sorry for telling that, Harley.
Harley, ruining my good time. Again.

About our mom and dad:
Our dad was a vice president for a big bank where he worked for 25 years. He was laid off a few months ago, and in December he started working for another major bank. He likes his new job a lot, I think. Our mom worked for many, many years in the insurance industry, and then she "retired" for about 3 years. She just started a new job last month at 1800PetMeds. She helps other dogs and cats get medicines! Now that she is working full time again, she says it is harder for her to help us blog. During the week, she works from 11:30 am - 8:00 pm, so we go online for a little bit in the mornings, and on her days off. She says it is very, very hard to leave us to go to work because I always try to follow her out the door and cry a little bit. When she gets home, Harley and I are waiting by the door for her.

Various Stuff:
We eat raw food made by Nature's Variety. They are frozen medallions that we just thaw the night before in the refrigerator. I like chicken and rabbit and Harley likes beef and rabbit. Sadly, we do not get Temptations any more. But we love our healthy grain-free treats which are freeze-dried organic duck hearts, turkey hearts, and chicken liver.

My favorite Beatle is the Click Beetle. They jump and make a funny noise.

Harley waving goodbye.

I will answer more questions a little bit later, so you do not get too bored reading about us!

84 Notes for Daisy:

gemmak said...

I love this post, it's so interesting to learn new sruffs about you all. I notice you get mad with harley quite often Daisy...young brothers can do that, you should cuff him around the ear sometimes and he will learn! heh ;)

Poppy Q said...

What a super post Miss D. I loved learning about you and your family.

I am glad your mom and dad have good jobs, and that they can bring green dollars in. We know you must miss them when they are working, but like most kitties I bet you sleep all day like me.

Smooches.

Kathy said...

Daisy, thank you so much for this post. It's fun to learn more about you and Harley. I know Harley spoils your good time a lot, but I think it's just because he loves to be with you. Try to have mercy on him.

I see you have one of those funny little orange and white stripey toys. That's a big hit around our house. Ours is a little spitty on the end. Is yours, too?

Please thank your mommeh for all her hard work with the blog, even though she has to spend time helping other kittehs during the day. She is a good mommeh.

Huffle Mawson said...

It's so interesting to learn all these new things about you Daisy and Harley!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

How could we possibly be bored, Daisy. This is one of the most fascinating posts ever and thank you for taking the time to answer the questions at such length!

We're sorry you have to miss your mommy during the day but we suspect that she misses you even more!

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

It is so nice to get to know your familt better dearest Daisy...I know you miss mommy when she is day hunting....coming home must be wonderfur when you hear that garage door going up!!

Ayla and Iza, said...

Well, you are both still very lucky kitties, ta have Beins what werk so hard and love ya. That matters most...

Forever Foster said...

It was very cool to learn some more about you and your family, Daisy. I like to sleep on the bed too, but don't like it when my brothers get up there. Maybe it's a girl thing?

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

Mostly we got that Harley makes you mad, Daisy. A lot. Which proves our point once again... BrOTHERS really are BOTHERS. Srsly.

Oh. And we know first paw how hard it must be for you, Harley and your Mommy to experience such drastic changes. We think it will all work itself out, once everybuddy gets into a rhythm again.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What a great post!!! We loved hearing about your daily goings on!!

Sorry your Momma has to go to work but then your together time when she comes home can be sooo special!!

Cat with a Garden said...

This was just wonderful. It's so cool that you are answering all these questions, Daisy. We are naturally curious and it's so satisfying to get some answers. We're very happy that your parents have good jobs again!

Alasandra said...

We could never get bored reading about you. ~AFSS

Meadow said...

Lots and lots of great info, thank you Daisy! I am sorry mum is back at work. I just left the insurance industry after 11 years, and I am hoping I don't have to leave the kitties behind again every day too, they love having me home.

Sweet Praline said...

This is great! I love learning about you and Harley. I'm glad both your mom and dad are working again and I'm sure they miss you as much as you miss them.

Eric and Flynn said...

We enjoyed this post Daisy. It was very interesting. We are sorry you miss your mum when she goes to work, but it makes it extra special when she gets back home.

Furkidsmom said...

We love learning about you! We know Harley makes you mad sometimes, but we think he just wants to be close to you 'cause he loves you.

The Paw Relations said...

Wow, it's great to learn all these new things about you and Harvey.

The Meezers and Billy said...

awesome! we learned so much about you!!!

i beati said...

can Mummy get me a job at 1800 petmeds I would love that ??

Cat of Nine Tales said...

We love learning new things about our blogging friends. I especially loved learning what makes Daisy mad and how much in common she has with Penny (except Penny has 7 brothers to contend with)! And also how Mommeh used to work for insurance industry...where I went back to work after a two year break. I've already been back a year! Argh!
Anyway, we look forward to more questions answered.

Marg said...

That is a great post. It is so much fun to learn all about you Daisy and your silly brother. It sounds like you have a super life even though Mommeh is gone now during the days. We have been looking into that raw feeding for some of the cats that have some allergies and it makes good sense since kitties used to live just on the wild things that they would catch. Thanks to Mommeh for going to the trouble of answering all the questions and it is far from boring.

The Kitty Krew said...

Ohhh, that was interesting stuff! We're sorry you get so mad at Harley all the time, Daisy. He's such a cute kitty, he should be easy to get along with. Then again, we know how annoying cute little brothers can be (yeah, we're looking at you, Ziggy...).

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

The Whiskeratti said...

Thank you for sharing with us, Daisy. Very cool stuff.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Daisy we enjoyed yoor post a lot. It does seem that Harley makes you mad ~ but just think how lonely yoo would be wiv owt him. He is a sweet boy too ~ and ALL bruvfurs are a bit pesty ~ it goes wiv the territory. Tee hee!

Oh, and BTW Daisy, we could NEVER get bored reading abowt you. 'Cos we LOVE yoo and Harley lots.

Mr. Grumpster Wilfred III said...

-d ma said...

i'd enjoyed your answers. particularly the one to my question.

Cory said...

There's nothing boring about you and Harley! Thanks for telling us about you. My momma Ellie, Bennette and Nigel sleep on the bed all the time. I only do it rarely...but mom gets very happy when I do.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

that was very interesting honey. my favorite beatle is john. but it used to be ringo.

smiles, auntie bee

Busby and Raymond said...

Very interesting answers! Harley's kittenhood was sort of like ours, our Mom was pregnant when she came into rescue too, so she was spayed after we were born. (lucky for us!) Daisy we had no idea you were from a breeder. We would love to see photos of Pixie sometime.

Grace said...

That was interesting but you are a bit of a princess aren't you Daisy. There is always enough room on the bed for the two of you. Snuggle nice.

AttieCattie said...

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

Oh Daisy!! Thanks for sharing all that cool information with us!! We cry when our Mom leaves for work also!! Clemmie & I do not snuggle either and she is a lot like Harley!!
Have a great day!!
Your TX furiends,

Glogirly and Katie said...

Hi Daisy,
It's really fun getting to know you more. This was a great post to read! Everything you wanted to know about Daisy... : )

Glogirly says your mommeh is very talented and creative. A great interior designer too. I asked Glogirly if your mommeh must have learned that in insurance school and she just rolled her eyes.

Have a great day, Daisy! Keep Harley in check.

The Furry Kids said...

And here we thought we knew everything about you, Daisy! Thanks for sharing with us. Mama hates leaving for work, too. She'd rather be home with us. But we meet her at the door and get lots of loves when she comes home.

Love,
Tazo

Winston (smilingpug) said...

You and I do sound so much a like and your name is Daisy my middle name!!!!!! My sister Kizzy and I do snuggle sometimes but sometimes we fight too. It sounds just like you and Harley!

Tammy said...

It's fun to learn more about you, Daisy, and the rest of your family too!!

Sparkle said...

It sounds like Harley does a lot of thing to make you mad! But I can tell from the photos, you have a lot of fun too so you obviously can't be mad at him all the time. ;-)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think we learned a lot about your Mom and Dad and you and Harley. I would think a place like 1800petmeds would allow your Mom to bring you to work with her and so she could stroller you around on her dinner break.

CatLadyDiary.com said...

It's cool to learn about you two and your family...it's like Good Housekeeping magazine invites us into the homes of the stars, like Marie Osmond or Tom Selleck.

The Island Cats said...

Thanks for those answers, Daisy! We learned some new things about you and Harley!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Angel and Kirby said...

Thanks for answering the questions. It is fun learning about you, Harley and your family!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh Daisy, we could neffur get bored reading about yoo and Harley. Yoo is furry lucky, our mom stopped working fur green papers but now she is bizzier den afore! Sometimes she leaves, come home, leaves, comes home...from morning until almost bedtime!

The Crew said...

Hmmm, it seems like Harley does a lot of stuff that makes you mad. I understand. Younger siblings can be annoying sometimes.

Buggys said...

This post is great. It's nice to discover a little more about the ones we visit each day.

Maureen said...

What great stories Daisy! I would never, ever get bored with them or you! More please!!!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Those are great questions and answers too!
That is cool that your mom gets to help kitties and woofies with medicines.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

What a Super GRRR-8 post today! LOVED it! And Thanx for answering our question!

jenianddean said...

Those were great answers and very interesting... no chance of getting bored. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for mentioning strollering because that's a good reminder for Mom and Dad. I don't stroll, but Maggie does, which gives the rest of us some peace.
--Jasper

Pricilla said...

I could never get bored reading about you Daisy!

It does seem that Harley bothers you.

I used to be a vice president in a bank too! But I retired because of a boo boo in my head.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Even with little time raising a puppy......which Mommy hasn't done since Luke was a puppy, 13 years ago, she helps us check up on you when we can blog. Most of the stuff about you two we knew. It's great that your pawrents have good jobs....Mommy said she expects to go in the bookstore someday, in the kids section and find a "How Daisy Does it" book, just for little girls! You know how much human girls love kitties, well, they would love to read how Daisy does it....dresses, food, hairstyles........and Mommy said she wants to buy the first book ....paw signed!!! =^Y^=

BeadedTail said...

Daisy, we loved reading more about you and your family! Thank you for answering our questions and writing such a wonderful post! Our mommy works from home but when she goes out we miss her and she misses us so she understands how your mommy feels having to leave you at home. But it's really nice you both welcome her home and we're sure she's very, very happy to see you - and your dad of course!

Admiral Hestorb said...

I am just enchanted with that seweet Daisy face and now I know where she was gotted and all about Harley too.

Daisy, your face is adorable..I love to see it and you are the epitome of what a Devon Rex should ber.

Harley, you are so handsome and loving. I think we have a crush on you, me and mama.

Lin said...

What a great idea for a post, Daisy.

I think you and Grace have a LOT in common. She does not like having a brother or a sister in the house. She gets mad at Hobbes for trying to be friends, sleeping on the bed, wanting to play, or breathing. Grace just doesn't like the thought of sharing her mommeh with anyone.

Nice to hear about your mommeh and daddeh's jobs. I'm glad they are both working--tough to do in this economy.

Uh, I think you are wacking Harley in that last photo. Look! His eyes are shut from fear!!

Pierro said...

Oh Daisy and Harley, I really liked the answers to these questions. Life is good.
Mom is thinking about getting me my own kitten. Mom wants a boy kitten, dad and Blizzie want a girl kitten.
I see it is kind of hard to be with another kitty all day. I think Harley is good for Daisy because she has to think about cooperating with Harley.
If I get a kitten, I am going to be the boss!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow that was all very interesting Daisy! We knew about Harley and the shelter and that you ate raw food, but other than that we learned a lot of new stuff! And we love the pictures too - it is too bad Harley makes you mad all the time though. That is cool that your mom helps other kitties and doggies get the medicine they need! Our dad's dad used to work at a big bank but he retired a long time ago - like way before Virgil and Barney were even born!

Jen said...

Daisy, you remind me of my son when his sister came home from the hospital.

Ann said...

It's so great to find out more about you. Try not to be too hard on Harley he's just trying to be like his big sisfur.

ABBY said...

Daisy & Harley
We enjoyed learning more about both of you and your Mom and Dad. Daisy it does sound like Harley is moving in on your territory, just don't let him take your spot on your Mom's neck at night!

purr on

Meghann LittleStudio said...

You two are so interesting, it makes you even more cute than you were before (if that's possible!). I really enjoy learning about you two and seeing photos of you just being cats, you play cats well :)
I can't wait to read more about you and I hope your neck gets better Daisy!

Laila and Minchie said...

Thank you for sharing all of that with us!

CCL Wendy said...

Thanks for giving us all this new information about you and Harley. I must say, there seems to be a consistent theme throughout, and that is that Harley just makes you mad!

Little brothers can be pests -- just ask Domino!

Rebecca said...

I enjoyed reading about you, Daisy. Livvy also comes to knead and purr all night. But she DROOLS, yuk!

Michelle | OnlinePosterPrinting.com said...

I think it's pretty cute how you and Harley are getting along just fine now. I'm glad Harley was able to join you in your stay with your Mommeh, it makes everything much more fun.

Debbie said...

This is fun, learning more about you and your family! Thank you.
