Hey everybuddy!  Y’know what today is?


It’s National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day!
And let me tell ya…I got a lot of questions for the mom!
So let’s get started.


Why don’t you want me on top of the china cabinet?

Well, Wally, it’s because there’s not a safe way for you to get down.  You’d have to jump all the way to the floor and that’s a long way down.  Besides, you have plenty of other spots to get up high, like on the big cat tree.


Why can’t we have the windows opened all the time?

Wally, it’s freezing outside right now!  Trust me, you wouldn’t want the window opened. When it’s warmer, we’ll open them.  But when it’s cold outside, they need to be closed so we’ll stay warm.

Well then, why can’t I go outside?

Same reason…it’s freezing out there.  And you’re much safer as an inside cat, Wally. There’s too many dangers outside, like cars and other animals and even humans.


Why don’t you want me eating the plants?

Wally, eating plants isn’t healthy for cats.  Many plants are toxic for you.  And when you do eat a plant, like grass, you end up throwing it up and making a mess.


So where’d you hide the treats?

Wally, if I told you that, then you’d find them and eat them all!  No, I won’t tell you where they’re hidden.


Who’s your favorite?  Me, Ernie or Zoey?

Wally, I don’t have a favorite…each of you is special to me in your own way.

Oh…you sure think you have all the answers, don’tcha, mom??

  1. We think your Mom had got most of the right answers – just one black mark as she didn’t tell you where the treats were hidden.

  2. That lady with the yellow hair had all the answers Wally. Good for her. Believe me Wally, you do not want to be outside right now, take it from us. It is very very cold out there. Have a great day and stay warm.

  3. your mom cheated on the treat question.

  4. Yeh, that windows thing gets us too.
    The REAL Maple Syrup Mob xxxxx

  5. We think your questions were excellent, though we’re not convinced your mom really answered well. Like, so what if she has to clean up your cat barf? That’s part of her job, right?

  6. Mom said you totally made her day!

  7. Your Mom has very good answers to your questions!!!

  8. Wally, you definitely had some excellent questions, and the Mom had all the answers. Bet you didn’t expect that. We didn’t even know about this day until yesterday so we didn’t post about it. Our question for today is similar to one of yours: Why can’t we go out on the catio? Mom says it is because it is 16 degrees outside. Sounds like a lame excuse for us.

  9. Wally bravo great q&a.
    When you find the treats let me know…maybe mine are hidden in the cabinet too
    Hugs Madi your bfff

  10. Your Mama DOES have all the answers Wally! Now listen up!! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

  11. Wow Wally we are really impressed with your climbing/ jumping skills. The top of your Mom’s china cabinet is way up in the sky. We don’t think pawrents should hide treats. Maybe when they are gone you and Ernie and Zoey could hunt for the treat stash. Everything is closed up tight here too so we aren’t getting any good sniffies. Mom says that she will open the windows when it is spring. That seems a really long time. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)

  12. that was just too darned cute!!!! Great questions and “Mom” you did a fabulous job of answering them!

  13. Wow–what a bunch of weasely answers! Is your Mom in advertising or public relations or may used car sales?

  14. Well you guys gave your Mom some GREAT questions today – but what I really want to know is did her answers SATISFY you????????????

    Hugs, Sammy

  15. I love how each one starts with “Wally,” – just like a mom!!- Crepes.

  16. Tell your mom that Bitter Apple keeps kitties from putting the bitey on plants 😉 I’m not a partaker but the human has had previous experience…

  17. Wally those were good questions. Mom has taken away all the living plants and lets them stay outdoors. Mr Ping is one who would eat anything green.

  18. Geesh! The Moms always have an answer to everything, right Wally?

    It’s snow here again! ARGH!

  19. You will notice my human refused to answer my questions. At least yours responded.

  20. Your Mum did a great job with your questions. Enjoy your day.

  21. your mom is pretty smart Wally….those were good questions though

  22. Hey Wally!
    I betcha I can help find those treats!!!
    I’m really good at raiding the kitchen cupboards.
    We’d make a pawsome team!

    ….are you SURE the mom doesn’t have favorites??? I mean you ARE orange and all.

  23. Wally, Binga is really good at finding hidden treats! If you promise to share the bounty, maybe she will help you.

  24. Wally, we think you asked some great questions! We give the mom 4 out of 5 stars for her answers…don’t know why it is such a big secret about where the treats are kept!

    PS – We think you are the favorite Wally!

  25. I’m an indoor cat too, Wally. My mum says its a dangerous world out there. Not all humans like cats and there’s lots of traffic.

    Happy WW!

  26. dood…hold de fone…while all yur questshunz are grate…. N if we may say sew…ewe R knot suppozed ta bee jumpin down frum de china cabinet,…….. yur mom iz pozed ta get on a chair ore a ladder and BRING EWE DOWN HER SELF…talk about a cop out answer……

  27. Your mom studied at the same mom school as all the other moms. They just know what to say because they’re trained to say it but of course we all know they are just spoilsports and we’re all their favorite!

  28. Silver asked Mum a lot of questions – he thought other folks might give some answers! Your Mum has you all sussed – especially hiding the treats (ours are in a little tin bucket with a lid * sigh).


  29. Excellent questions Wally – even if you might not like all the answers. And, sshhh don’t tell the others…but you’re our favourite. We love ginger kitties at Pawesome Cats.

  30. Your mum made a good job of answering most of your questions Wally, but she copped out where the treats were concerned.

  31. Good questions Wally! I don’t think you were satisfied with the answers though!

  32. We just got our stastickle things from WordPress for our first year and you are one of our top commenters. Thank you every so much for being a support to the blog – it means a huge amount to the little team at DashKitten.

    Marjorie, Harvey, Silver and Miranda.

  33. Those were really good questions. Your hooman is good at giving the run around on the answers just like our mama especially the treats thing. Adam searches all our cabinets too.

  34. Very cute post. I love the photo of Wally digging in the cupboard. Cinco and Manna do that stuff all the time.

  35. Wally, it is so unfair that the mom won’t tell you where the treats are! Plus, so what if you chew on plants and grass and puke and make a mess?

  36. Wally you are just like our little Rascal. No place you guys can’t climb I see. Rascal loves to see what’s in our cabinets too. Love the photos and captions.

  37. Great questions! We’re glad to see we aren’t the only cats on the block who break into the cupboard and help ourselves to the contents!

  38. Wally, maybe you could eat up there if your mom would lift you down. Ask her that next year. We loved all your questions!

  39. They never give you a straight answer. TW didn’t take my questions seriously at all.

  40. Great answers! Mes thinks your human is furry smart! Does yous wanna trade?

  41. she got ya, Wally! you really put your mom on the spot! we think your folks should install an elevator or something so you can get down from your china cabinet safely 🙂

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  42. Wow Wally, you sure were very thorough in your questioning for sure! The Mom sounds pretty darn smart to us!

  43. Pawsome questions!! LOL xoxo

  44. those are great questions Wally but yes mums always have the answers…hehehe,xx Speedy

  45. Wally, they are all great questions! And your mom’s answers are great, too! And I know all of you are your mom’s favorite 🙂

  46. THose were very good questions. YOu did not stump her on a single one!

  47. Hey Wally,

    If you figure out where the treats are let me know. I’ve been looking all over the place. Maybe they all hide them in the same place…


  48. Those were good questions sweet Wally and we see you got answers too. We love all three of you the same…no favorites here. Hugs and nose kisses

  49. Your mom was good at answering your questions Wally (except the one about treats…) ! Purrs

  50. Wow, your The Mom sure made quick work of those questions, Wally. For what it’s worth, we can’t get the answer about treats out of our The Mom and The Dad, either.

    Thank you for your purrs and prayers for Moosey. He seems to be feeling pretty good for now … we’re just waiting for those blood tests to come back to see where we go from here. Kind of stressful!

  51. Those pictures were very funny in how innovative you were in doing no things. Those were some pawsome Q and A with Mom and with this weather I agree inside kitty life is best.

  52. Wow Wally, those were some pretty good answers. No outsmarting her it seems!

  53. Great questions, Wally! Maybe your mom could plant some catnip for you; we bet you wouldn’t throw that up! 🙂

  54. Mawahhahwhha loved it and did you find the treats in that cupboard 🙂 xxoxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  55. All good answers from your mom-person , accept the one about where is the treats 🙂

  56. HAH. Our mommy had the same answer to the treats question. Geez, they think they know EVERYthing. Hmpf.

  57. Great questions and answers. I’m an indoor kitty too and I also have step-stools to the taller perches so I don’t have to jump down so far.

  58. wow great questions Wally,xx Speedy

  59. Good questions, Wally! I can see why your Mom cannot pick a favorite out of those three sweet faces.
