Questions for Carlton
As a media star of some standing, I often get asked questions by my fans. Here are a few of them:
How do you keep your fur in such tip-top condition?
It's all down to masculine grooming and care. Occasionally I come indoors with muddy feet (see yesterday's Pawprints post) and with dirt and burrs stuck to me. I then find the cleanest spot in the house and transfer as much of this dirt as I can. I then proceed to groom myself. It is essential to get dirty in the first place as it's by removing the debris that I can condition my own fur and keep it glossy (hence the term "spit and polish"), making me the handsome fellow you see today.
Why do you try to sleep on laptop keyboards?
You misunderstand the manoeuvre. I'm not trying to get into position to sleep there - but to share with you my technological expertise. I am keeping an eye out for nasty things like worms and viruses. If I ever see any I am going to pounce and get rid of them for you.
What is your favourite food?
Anything I can steal off a plate.
Who are your friends?
I don't understand the question.
What do you dream about?
I had a dream I was perched high on top of a bookcase with Mr watching TV below. I waited until his eyes began to droop and then I pounced. Mr screamed like a girl and fell off the sofa. Oh no, hang on. That wasn't a dream, it really happened.
What is the collective noun for a group of cats?
If you look this up on the internet, you will find a variety of nouns, including a clowder of cats, a clutter, a pounce, and a glare. Personally, I call a group of cats "a fight waiting to happen".
Why do you sleep so much?
Zzzzz, Zzzzz, Zzzzz.
