IDYA #2 was to find a NOMSS friend... If it's not too late, we found one! I'm one of Chase's Charmers, so we talked about becoming friends with his REALLY big sister, Snap the horse! As suburban cats, we've never met a horse before, but my mother was a barn cat.
We exchanged email with Snap, so here's her introduction in her words.
Straight from the horse's mouth!
Sounds like she knows her mind! I admire that in a female friend.Hello felines, I hope that you smell nice because I really like to snuzzle the barn cats. It's kind of fun to make them walk away while I blow on them, I think they smell interesting. Lets see... I am a 6 year old mare (girl) and I am a chestnut (red head) Thoroughbred. I have a white star and stripe on my face but other than that I'm all one color, I'm a darker "liver" color.
I used to be a racehorse but I hated that. People wanted me to work too hard for too long and I liked to give a burst of speed but not keep it up. I am the "Boss Mare" of my field which means I'm in charge of the rest of my 15 fieldmates. They look to me for guidance and I tell them when to kiss-off. I put my ears back to warn horses and people to back off. My name is Make it Snappy (Snap for short) and my racing name was KTM Sparkler. I snap at the air when I'm mad. I clack my teeth together and pin my ears and make nasty faces when I don't like something. Oh, and I swish my tail. I think Bonnie and I have a lot in common. I don't like to be touched unless its on my face and then I love hugs and pets.
I LOVE FOOD. Any kind of food. I like carrots, apples, coffee, candy, watermelon, cereal, you name it - I eat it. I like when the Woman rides me because she's smart and knows that you can't make me do something, it has to be my idea. If I'm in pain, I'll tell you all about it and refuse to put one hoof forward. I'm very reliable and dependable though, I would never hurt my rider and I feel the need to take care of my rider and any other horses around me. I think I'd be a good mother. I'm also a terrible flirt. When I come into heat (they don't fix girl horses, just boys) I make it quite known that I'm very interested in ANY thing/one/object that might... ahem... satisfy me.
So that's me. Now leave me alone and let me eat my grass. Unless you have a treat, then I'll look the most innocent sweet angel and do whatever you want. :) Treat???? Please????
And she likes treats! ::spin:: I unnerstand that! So Snap is our furry BIG NOMSS friend. Our mom loves horses an rided them fur 4 years, but never owned one. She says it takes lotsa green papers.
I'll bet horses don't get wrapped in blankets and stuffed into PTUs to see the vet!
Now we have Anastasia's last dare. Poor Anastasia! This challenge should appeal to me in particular, as it involves an element of... revenge. So many cats have been forced to appear on their blogs dressed in uncomfortable and silly outfits! Some cats enjoy dressing up; that's fine, but for those of us who do NOT like it, this is a chance to get even.
We asked Mom an Dad if they'd dress up, but they didn't wanna. The boy, howefur, was quite happy to pose in hims howloween costume! We present Our Boy as... A Software Pirate!
Very scary. See the pens in his geeky pocket? And he's offering
I wonner if he knows DP Blogger?
