Sneaky Interviews Harry and Hermione, the new kittens of author Debbie De Louise

I have two interesting guests to chat with today — Harry and Hermione, the new kittens of my author Debbie De Louise.

Meow there, Harry and Hermione. You may take turns answering my questions. Ladies first, Hermione, please tell us how you came to live with Debbie and her family.

Hi, Sneaky. It all started when my brother Harry and I were rescued by a shelter in Huntington called the Golden Paws Society. We stayed there a while and then a cat cafe opened, and we were brought there. Debbie and her daughter Holly visited and adopted us.

That’s a nice story. Do you have anything to add to it, Harry?

I do, Sneaky. When Debbie and Holly came to the Shabby Tabby Cat Cafe on October 21st, Holly started playing with me. She always wanted a black kitten, and she fell in love with me. I was the reason my sister and I were adopted.

Is that true, Hermione?

Not exactly, Sneaky. Even though Holly liked Harry, Debbie had just written a book featuring a calico kitten. Although she’s had lots of cats all her life, she’d never had a calico and fell in love with me. Because we couldn’t be separated, Debbie and Holly took both of us. 

That’s pawsome., and I know which book you mean. It’s the fourth and latest Cobble Cove mystery, Love on the Rocks. I was a little jealous that another cat came to town, but Kittykai was a great help protecting my Alicia from a killer. I’m sure you would do the same for Debbie and Holly if they were in danger.

Both kittens nod.

So tell me, what do you like most about living with Debbie and Holly, Hermione?

Well, Debbie got me these really fun curly toys, and I can’t help but bat them around and pick them up in my mouth like a mouse. 

What about you, Harry?

I love playing with the cat teaser that Holly got me, and I love hiding in the cat tunnel and popping out to catch it. Hermione and I also love our cat tree.

That’s great. Now isn’t it true that Debbie has another cat? Have you become acquainted with Stripey, her 10-year old yet, Harry?

I sure have, but he’s a little wary of us. Holly tried to introduce me to him, but he started growling. We’re taking it slow. Hermione and I are used to being around other cats, and Stripey once lived with Oliver, Debbie’s senior cat who she adopted and who passed on to Pet Heaven last year, but he isn’t used to kittens. 

I’m sure the three of you will be best of pals soon. Thank you for the cat chat today, and I have some exciting news for you two. Debbie has agreed to allow you to write a kitten column on this blog. Now you’ll be sharing it with me, but I’m a character cat who specializes in interviewing pet characters. You and Hermione can write about your experiences as real-life pets of an author. Do you think Harry and you are up to that, Hermione?

You bet your whiskers we are, Sneaky. When do we start?

You just did, but I’ll try to fit you in on a regular basis.

One last question, and this is for Harry. I notice in one of the photos in this post you’re wearing a shirt. What is that all about? No one has yet to try to dress me up, although I’m sure it might happen in a future book.

Well, Sneaky, Holly wanted to dress us all up, but Hermione is not as calm-tempered and patient as I am. 

Do you have anything to say about that, Hermione?

I’ll just say I’m beautiful the way I am. Also, Sneaky, there’s a rumor that Harry and I or some kitten characters based on us may be in one of Debbie’s upcoming books.

I had a feeling that might happen. Cobble Cove is going to be overrun with cats soon, but I will always be the top cat.

Nice cat chatting with you both and looking forward to your Kitten Columns.
