The Pets of Page-A-Day: Lily and Bo

Sat, 26 Jan 2019 - Animals & pets

Here's another installment of the Pets of Page-A-Day! 

Meet Bo, a friendly and furry gray cat, and her human, Lily. Lily is on the Digital and Web Operations team at Page-A-Day and Workman, where she helps build newsletters and ads, assists with the website, and manages our social media accounts (including Instagram and Facebook).

Enjoy our interview with Bo, and don't forget to submit your pet's photo in the Page-A-Day photo contest for a chance to have your pet featured in our calendar!

1. Bo, tell us the origin of your name.

Funny story: When my human family rescued me and my sister from the filthy and claustrophobic box my feline family was living in, we all had ridiculous names. Mine was “Miss Pee” because I had one too many accidents—talk about mortifying! My new humans took one look at me and changed my name to Bonita, the Spanish word for “pretty,” making me the most confident cat to ever walk this planet. I go by Bo because it’s easier for a lot of people and cats to pronounce.

2. Do you and Lily ever disagree about anything?

She’ll kill me for telling you about this, but we do have one ongoing disagreement about food. Lily and the other humans only let me eat this gross wet canned food or dry pellet food, but all I ever want is feta cheese and artisanally churned French butter. Sometimes, when Lily’s done cooking, I’ll hop up onto the counter and lick the pan. I’ve been told not to do this numerous times, but I seriously can’t stop. It’s worth getting yelled at for a little taste of heaven. The image below is actually of me stealing a bite of Lily's burrito! 

3. You are in wonderful physical shape. Could you please share your morning routine with us?

Oh, thank you! The trick to looking and feeling my best is waking up every morning on the right side of the cat bed, at promptly 5:19 AM. Then, I yowl and yowl until I wake up someone with opposable thumbs who feeds me a very big helping of turkey giblets wet food, immediately following with a large scoop of kibble. After this step, and once the central heater has been turned on, I run to my favorite vent and completely cover it with my whole body for approximately 2 hours, until the fur on my belly feels like a heated blanket. Giving myself this sacred “me time” is crucial for my well-being.

4. You are an indoor-outdoor cat, correct? What do you do when you go outside?

Yes, you are correct. Unfortunately, the business that I tend to outdoors is top secret, and I cannot share it with you.
