Q & A With Grover V. Fuzzy (The V Stands For 'Very')


It's Grover. Listen, Well, it seems you would like to know more about me, Grover, King of The House. And, because you asked so nicely (fine, Teri asked so nicely!) and because my mom just realized we had been given two very lovely awards that she had yet to tell us about (harrumph!), if you keep reading you will find out more about who I am and what makes me tick.

Teri and the Furry Cats, and Elin gave us this great Honest Scrap Award!

And here are the rules:

“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows who he or she is.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including ones who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends.

Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

List at least ten honest things about yourself, as well as an Honest Photo...Then, pass it on! “

So, here are some Honest Things About Me and my photo above is quite honest, indeed:

1. My full name is "Grover V. Fuzzy, the 'V' Stands for Very". That is what it says on my papers. My mom is named Cunia and my dad is Little Mr. Gigolo.

2. I ripped my mom's right eyelid open when I was a kitten and she had to get four stitches in it, but I did not rip the nerve so her eye is OK. However; because she has a scar from me she said she will not be getting a tattoo for me, even though she has one for our cat Jade who died and even though she's currently planning on getting a Piggy tattoo. That's mean! I will guilt her into changing her mind.

3. When my mom brought Piggy home my whole personality changed - I used to be very happy-go-lucky and I loved everyone! She feels very badly about this and I am glad. She thought I needed a friend after Cheshire died and so she got Piggy to keep me company. Um, can you say, WRONG!?!

4. My mom had four surgeries in 5 years and after each one I guarded her injured parts for months and if anyone tried to go near her I would hiss at them and swat them. Everyone said I was a very good guard.

5. I snuggle Piggy when no one is looking.

6. The fur on the top of my head looks like Friar Tuck.

7. When I was a kitten, people thought I was a monkey.

8. Whenever my mom is in the shower we play a game of 'tap tap' through the shower curtain. I stand up and beat the shower curtain with both my paws and my mom laughs.

9. I will knock over ANYTHING that is on a table or counter and pull things out of drawers and unroll the toilet paper and tear things up if I am in a certain mood. I am in a certain mood a lot, especially lately.

10. I saved my mom from heart-break after Jade died.

11. I was a very, um, active kitten and broke nearly every breakable thing in the house and made my mom cry a lot...especially when I ripped her eyelid open. Frankly, I think I was paying her forward for bringing Piggy into my life when I was five years old. Payback's a bitch, eh? I know she thinks I'm so super cute because she always used to say to me, "Grover, you are so freaking lucky you are so freaking cute!"

We would like to know honest things about all our friends, and a lot of our friends have already posted their honest things, but here are 7 we don't think have done so yet:

Marley, Reggie and Me
Jeter Harris
A Few Good Cats
Artsy Catsy
Cats of Wildcat Woods
The Meezers
Meir Cats

And now you will learn even MORE about me, because not only am I totally freaking fantastic, the Cats of Wildcat Woods gave us this fantastic award!

I'm supposed to give you six things that make me happy. Ok, here goes.

1. My mom.
2. My mom carrying me.
3. When Piggy leaves me alone.
4. Any water that has touched my mom - I drink her bath water when she takes a bath, and every morning I get into the shower after my mom gets out and I drink the water at the bottom of the tub.
5. Sitting on the stove, particularly if a burner is lit.
6. Licking my mom's face when she sleeps.

And that is enough about me.

Because we think you are all so creative, we pass this award onto all our friends...and these, too!

The Creek Cats said...

Congrats on both of those well derserved awards. We loved reading all those interesting things about you Grover!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Why, thank you so much Mr Very Fuzzy! Teri told us all about you and now we think you are kinda nice, and not such a badass cat after all. Teri has a scar under her eye from someone's claw in the middle of the night running across her face and she had a black eye from it right in the middle of interviewing when she moved here. But it didn't need stitches...maybe it's like a tattoo from us? Ya think?

Teri said she's been really busy this week so hasn't posted much, but every day at work she reads everyone you guyses blog and we all smile...

We are a little worried cuz your mom didn't post Pigs biopsy report yet...sometimes no news isn't good news but we have our paws and claws crossed...

peggy and The Cats said...

Wow! that is a lot of stuff about you. We feel like we know you now. You must be a very special kitty to have such a good Mom. We've left scars on our mom, but there are so many she doesn't remember who gave her what, nothing special like an eye scar.

PinkynAsh said...

Congrats on both of those awards. It was cool to learn about you Grover.

The Meezers said...

awwww grover, thank you so much. we are so honored.
those was great things about you. Billy is the same with the water touching the mom.

Poppy Q said...

Thanks Grover for thinking of me and giving me an award.

Interesting facts about you. Mum would love another cat, but she is a bit nervous that it could upset me, just like Piggy did to you.

Thanks a lot very Fuzzy dude.

Daisy said...

Wow, Grover, that eyelid thing sounds a little scairty! I like to give the bitey, but I almost never make bloods come out.

My personality changed some when Harley moved in, too. I used to be the top cat, and bossed Pixie around. I would never, ever hiss or growl. Now Harley is always trying to chase me around and rassle with me, and so I hiss and growl at him all the time!

Junior and Orion said...

Gee Grover.....sounds like you are a handful!

I drink my Meowms bathwater and get in the shower after her also. And my rainbow sisfur, China, accidentally clawed Meowms eyelid. She didn't have to have stitches, but she has a scar.

I think you secretly like Piggy.

The Cat Realm said...

Oh we absolutely loved the things you told us about you! So interesting! And congratulations on the awards, so well deserved!
Now - is that REALLY your Mom in that picture? She is beautiful!!! But as there is no scar in this ladie's right eyelid we think you might have cheated with that picture...???

Karen Jo said...

Congratulations on your awards. I liked learning more about you, Grover. I am thrilled that you snuggle Piggy when no one is looking. You really know how to make your mark on your Mom.

Cliff and Olivia said...

Congrats on the awards. It was great to learn more about you. You confirmed some of our suspicions.

Annie said...

Grover sounds like my cat Max, he is into everything and if it si standing on a counter or table, he must knock it off.
Grover is a dool. How is Piggy?

Elenka said...

Thanks for the info about yourself. You're quite a guy!
