Welcome to a terrific Siamese cat blog for this week’s worldwide web interview. We have an Meezer focus, and as mum is a big Siamese fan, we are thrilled to add this interview to our roster of international stars.
Today we welcome two of the cats that give us much pleasure online, Kali and Shoko, Meezers at Large in one of our favourite countries – Canada. Welcome to spokescat Shoko who introduces The Canadian Cats…..
Welcome to Fort Meezer in da Hood. It is a royal treat to communicate with others so far away. Pull up a stool and have a steaming cup of catnip tea fresh from our garden. Um….the catnip that is……not the water. hehe
Where in the world are you?
We, being sister Kali, mom and dad and myself live in the Northern Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Kali and I have never left the city of Prince George so we believe mom. Prince George is known for sawmills and pulp mills as we are surrounded by forests for miles and miles. We find this fact boring. We don’t climb trees and don’t eat bark so what’s the big deal? So we need to make our own fun.
What is your favourite part of creating your Siamese cat blog?
Kali and I would agree that our favourite part of posting is the time we spend with mom. We lay on the back of the love seat and look over mom’s shoulder as she types. We feel the input mom receives from us is valuable and sometimes mom gets some excellent pictures of our studious behaviour. We do many activities with mom and one of my favourite is tending the veggie garden. Every day I water, fertilize and dig in the garden, providing the much-needed nutrients these veggies need. Our growing season is short so mom needs all the help she can get. Sorry, I can get a little wordy or become a blabber mouth. We all love the idea of reaching out and talking with friends from all over the world.
What kind of readership have you discovered enjoys your blog?
The Canadian Cats is not a deep blog that deals with diseases of cats or nutritional requirements. We offer a mostly humorous look at two Siamese cats and their dealings with life’s events from their point of view. We would assume most of the visitors to the blog are looking in to see what antics Kali and I have been inflicting on mom. Life can be very serious and discouraging. A laugh can change a depressive mood so the obstacles in our life don’t seem as monumental. If, someone gets a chuckle from our behaviour…..our goal was achieved.
What are the joys and challenges of being a worldwide blogger?
The challenges of worldwide blogging were obvious right away. Mom knew little about a computer and even less about the programs. She had to find out how this here box thingie worked and then learn to take pictures, photo edit and generally familiarize herself with the everyday workings of life in Blogville. The joys were quick in coming. The first post we did and it turned up to be visible to others, was a cause for celebration. Then to find out three peeps actually were interested in what we had to say……well, you could have blown us away. The one thing we didn’t expect was the close-knit community we were joining. We now have friends from Hungary to The Hague. We have become very attached to both the peeps and the pets.
Will you suggest some of your favourite posts for our readers to discover more about you?
I would say to your readers, if you have the time read them all. See how mom has improved over the years. MOL She did her first post and then was so upset, she never posted again for 3 months.
