Spotlight Thursday – Meet Murli

29 Jun

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Murli (I only come and react when called Murli, but Mum has other names for me like: Mi, Miez, Peeps, Feepsy, Schatz (=Treasure), Maus (=Mouse), Mau, Moo, Mauz, Flausch (=Fluff). )

Age:  11 (B-day iz August 17, 2005) 😸

Location:  Graz, Austria (We livez in da center of our city)

Web/Blog Page:   Mum Natascha and me have this blog as a way to connect with our furends, and share a bit from our life and about ourself with them and everyone interested.  We made so many really wonderful human and furry furends through da blog and we loves to make new lovely furends! 

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? Me was a tiny small kitty, da last one of my siblings who still was in da foster pawrents home. Mum Natascha founds me through a work colleague of hers, who tolds her about a lil black kitty needing a furever home. As da day to meet came… Me was in a little box within a carrier, and completely focused on playing around in there with some toys. But then suddenly,  Mum was there, sitting down in front of da open carrier, but with enough space between me and her, because she didn’t want to frighten me.  Me stopped playing instantly and looked at her fur a moment before coming out, right to da hand her was stretching out to me. Me said “Meeep!” and instantly thought that she smells nice. Me thought “Who iz dis? Me likes her!” Then me climbed into her arms, not feeling afraid at all. Me just liked her right away fur some reason. I didn’t even know what was going on anyway, but me wasn’t afraid at all and me felt safe with her.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  Right from da first day I was home with her, I didn’t want to leave her side. It was da way me felt instantly loved and cared about. When I spent da first hours in ma new furever home on Mums lap, or in her arms, me just felt safe and loved, like you feel with your Mummy. I knew from then on, me had found home, my furever home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   hehe, me never got in trouble with Mum, her just can’t be mad at me Da biggest mess I ever made was causing a full container with flour to fall on da kitchen floor. It was epic! Because after I caused it to fall from  da counter, me had to explore da mess of course. I found it hilarious. Me laid down in da mess, so there was flour everywhere! Little paw prints in da flour and on other places. Me was suddenly more like a tuxedo kitty, than a black kitty. Mum being too worried for me to even take pics of that mess, just started cleaning me up first thing. Her was worried me could breath in da flour and have trouble with it. She was also worried it would irritate my eyes. But me was fine, though it took a while to turn me back into a black kitty

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Mum iz my only pawrent, but me haz a grandpaw (Mums Dad). I haz both of them wrapped around my paws completely They just really love me. But I have Mum wrapped around my paws even more maybe, because she will drop everything instantly if me wants or needs anything.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  Me thinks that humans who dont know me underrestimate how smart I am. But that goes for all animals. Some humans, mostly from other more superstitious parts of Europe and da world think that I’m bad luck because I’m a black kitty. But Mum always says me brings only luck, love, happiness and a bond for eternity. Just like all other animals too

As you can see, me was kind of a black tabby as kitten. But when me got ma grown up fur, it was replaced with mostly black fur. But in da sun you can still see some stripes when you look closely. And da fur on some parts of me looks almost red brown in da sun.  I like to sleep above Mums pillow.  I love hanging out at the windows and watch the birds and da humans in da street below. Mum and Grandpaw made all da windows safe fur me and he build those frames for da screen himself. Iz a wire grid, but it has some kinda coating to make it smooth. And then da netting to keep out insects, especially because of bees, hornets and wasps, so me cant be stung. This is ma fav grey mousie. Iz da oldest and me does not give it up. I loves all ma toys, but me still loves da old grey mousie da most MOL!



Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    Mum and me just wantz to say thankz soooo much fur doing the interview with me! Mum lovedz it and me did too. And we are sooooo grateful for all the absolutely amazing and kind comments here. Wez sorry fur having been late. Mum hadz some bad eye strain going on and it took so long to get back to normal because she didnt stay away from the computer completely for a while, but in the end, she had to. And she slowly started catching up with everything and now everything iz fine again and we are around! Yay! Was not fun not bein able to post, because Mum could not read or write… Sighz.

    Thank you all so much! We will def. be around and look forward to seeing all of you again. Thank you sweet Houdini an Unccle Bacon fur doin the interview and making the post! We are really happy!
    Sending lots of love to all of you!
    Murli and Mum😉😽💕
