an interview with Erica Yeager
Gussy and Gabby
How were you and your kitties united?
After losing my Luna cat I found myself very sad. So, I started looking on the internet at www.petfinder.com. I came across these four beautiful kittens. They wanted them to be adopted in twos. Gabby really caught my eye because she was a beautiful Siamese. So, I adopted Gabby and Gussy, but Gussy chose me.
How did they get their names? Any nicknames?
The girls, as I like to call them, were given their names by the foster mom that took care of them. She liked “G” names because she named my two “Gussy” and “Gabby” and the other two were “Guppy” and “Gibby”. We call them “Gussy Girl” and “Gabby Girl” and “the girls”.
Do they have a favorite place to nap?
Gabby loves to lay in my dresser drawer and the back of Alan’s chair and Rebekah’s bed. Gussy loves to sit beside me at night on the couch. She also likes the back of Alan’s chair and the glider rocker stool.
Gussy loves the crinkle balls. She carries them in her mouth and drops them in her cube and attacks them. She also likes the feather on her scratching post. Gabby loves the crinkle balls, too. She loves cat nip that Grammy gives her.
What is their best quality?
I love when Gussy comes up to me after work and rubs all over me. She talks a little, which I love. Gabby is very quiet, which is nice.
If they could change one thing about you, what would it be?
Gussy would like me to get up earlier so she can eat. Gabby doesn’t really know me.
If they could answer one question in English, what would you ask them?
Gussy- Why are you so scared for me to pick you up?
Gabby- Are you pregnant?
Good Earth Original Sweet Cinnamon Fruit Tea
What are you currently reading?
Where is your favorite place to read and where is your kitties’ favorite place to be while you’re reading?
I like reading in bed or on the couch. Luna would always sit on my lap. Gussy will sometimes come up beside me.
If you wrote a novel about your kitties, what would be the title?
The Two Girls Who Found Their Forever Home
What is one feature you love most about their looks?
I love Gussy’s dark face. I love Gabby’s face shape and coloring.
What hobby/craft project are you currently working on?
knitting a blanket for a friend who is having a baby
They rock! Getting friendlier by the day. Currently 7 1/2 months old. Really hoping Gabby isn’t pregnant. Only time will tell.
