For today’s guest post I would like to welcome Susan Keeping and her ocicat Boo.
My ocicat, Boo, is special in many ways. He has very little eyesight but you cannot tell by looking at him as he gets around very well and hardly ever walks into things. He loves to eat the strangest foods; his favorite people foods are bananas and mushrooms.
He is by far the most intelligent and curious cat I have ever owned. If Boo sees a shut door he must try to open it; he knows his name and comes when I call; he understands the words “out” and “treats” among others; he comes running to the door every day when I come home from work; and, he plays catch with the tops rings of milk jugs, and yes, he does bring them back and drops them at my feet. His latest habit is to run to the balcony door the moment I come in so that we both can go outside and I can brush him, he won’t go outside right away if I don’t.
Boo has a very funny thing he does when he has had enough something I have given him to eat, or if he doesn’t like what I gave he. He will scratch right beside the item of food like he is trying to cover it up in the litter box. That makes me laugh every time he does it.
Boo is very special to me and he makes a great companion. He is definitely a one-person cat and I like it that way.
