In the latest Simon’s Cat Asks, we catch up with Smokey, the Guinness World Record holder for the Loudest Purring Cat!
“An impatient kitty can’t wait to be fed!”
Late last year the Simon’s Cat Team discovered Spangles ‘the cross eyed kitty’ after he had become a bit of an internet sensation with his fancy dressing and unforgettable face.
His owner Mary took Spangles in 3 years ago when an ex neighbour moved. They couldn’t take him with them, Mary thought that “he was just so cute” so offered to take care of him. It’s been a special friendship ever since.
Spangles was born on July 4th which inspired his name. He was born cross eyed but Mary assures us he can see perfectly fine. He’s a big boy, around 15lb and loves to sleep, pose for the camera and snuggle with ‘his’ Mary.
SC: What is Spangles’ favourite sleeping place?
M: He loves to sleep on top of the cat stand, which is very high…and in his mamas lap!
SC: What is Spangles’ favourite toy?
M: Hmm he’s not TOO fond of toys. But he loves it when I put cat nip on the cat stand…he plays and just goes crazy!
SC: What is Spangles’ most annoying habit?
M: He loves to walk sooo slow in front of you, and sometimes he will just lay down right in front of you when you’re walking! Very annoying.
SC: What is Spangles’ most lovable trait?
M: His eyes! They are cross eyed, and just so blue. Also he loves to snuggle!
SC: What is Spangles’ most memorable moment?
M: When he was about a year old, we come in from fishing and set our rods inside the closet. He somehow got in, and got a massive cat fish hook caught in his eye lid. I woke up from hearing him making noise in the living room, and I FREAKED out. I thought it was in his eyeball. A trip to the emergency vet and a few hundred dollars later, the hook was out, and he was totally fine. It just got in his eyelid…he was VERY lucky! We called him captain hook for awhile. : P
