Mookie the Cat

Updated on December 23, 2016

Although I'm a rescue cat, I don't see why this should bar me from living like Jabba the Hut. As I was moving from pillow to pillow it occurred to me that you, my online friend, can pay a bit of attention to me, adding even more to my pampered and self-centered environment. Understand, I freely lavish attention and love to those around's just that I require so very much more from them in return.

Comfort Requirements

Inside or out, it's important I have a choice of pillowed places to relax....I'm good at alerting my staff where and when to be ready with my goose down.

Attention Please.....

I need something..... figure out what it is.

How I made it here.........

After being rescued from certain death by the cops from a hell-hole residence in a rural area, they sent me to a rescue veterinarian, who packed me up and shipped me to my new home and staff....via UPS.

I have simple needs.....really......

I love being "bugged". The bug is a vibrating massager (mine looks like a ladybug), and when I inform the staff that I would like a bit of pampering (usually just a look at the bug, laying down on my side and a meow) I get shoulder-to-butt vibrating bliss. The only other thing I really need, besides numerous pillow stations, treats 3 times a day and frequent belly rubs, is ice in my water bowl; if the last cube has been melted too long, just standing by the bowl and screaming for a bit will fix that right up.

Community Service

I certainly don't mind mentoring our youth as long as they look up to me with the required reverence.

Where's the remote!


Mookie Cooing at Nothing

I Purr...Not like a little cute kitty purr but an ear shattering coo that makes me sound a bit like a pigeon on steroids. I really like to do this a 3am as close to the "staffs" heads as possible. I need no reason to do this...I often purr at nothing.

Part of the daily regime.......................

In order to maximize me, I place my chakra activation and clearing ball on top of my head, enabling sacred geometric alignment, vibrational therapy and, on good days, a shamanic journey. The ball is full of catnip.

Holiday Responsibilities

Possessing the most regal and respected chair at our households holiday table, it falls on my shoulders (and pooch) to guard the Christmas stockings from the vandals that make up some of my extended family....Pork Chop in particular....that little devil would rummage through everyone's stockings in search of nip.

I Love Sunbeams & Sidewalks

      RIP sweet Mookie. You were dearly loved, and will no doubt be remembered into eternity. I'm glad I got to hear your pigeon coo purr today. My heart goes out to your "staff" who feels the horrid empty place you've left behind.

      My word, so cats can write I often wondered when mine pass their paws over the keyboard and start meowing as though I am not doing it right. Keep up the good work Mookie, I think you are very funny. Top marks and lensrolled and featured on my pet lensNorma

      Mookie, you obviously have the 'staff' in your house well-trained to cater to your every, whim!GroovyFinds, I've been hoping you'd do a featured lens about Mookie ever since I saw his name in your bio. Fantastic photos .. and cats are not easy to photograph! Well done.

      Hi Mookie! My cat, Sebastian, demanded that I give you 5 congratulatory meows for you and your staff on a great lens. My doggie, Angel, told me to lensroll to her ASPCA lens because she is a rescue, too. :D
