Snoops and Kommando Kitty here. Today we are interviewing Spike from Spike the Scottish Black Cat. He is extremely photogenic (like the vast majority of us) as you will see when you visit his blog. He is also a great ambassador to other cats on WordPress; we have met several new friends through him.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Mum brought me home from The Cats Protection when I was 8 weeks old. I was nervous going in the noisy thing humans call a car. Mum cuddled me all the way so I felt safe in mum’s arms.
We saw the pictures of you in the snow. Isn’t that awfully cold on your tummy?
I have a skin problem. I have medication for it. When it flares up my body especially my paws can become so hot. That’s why I love the snow it’s purrfect for cooling me down.
Spike is a really tough name. Do you have a cuddly side?
The people at The Cats Protection gave me my name. When I was born the fur on the top of my head stood up like a Spike. I can be cuddly on my terms.
What is your favorite thing to do?
Nowadays I love to sleep, eat and go out in my garden. Not forgetting to sniff my catnip bushes which are getting bigger every day.
The only things we know about Scottish treats are for humans (shortbread and scones). Nothing for cats. Do you have a favorite local treat?
Fish yummy. Fresh from the fishing boats then brought to the fish market. Prawn, tuna, Salmon. My mouth watering thinking about all that lovely fresh fish.
Does your human treat you well (respond to your every need in a timely manner)?
My human adores me. I have my meals when I choose and a nice brush once a day. Then play time but usually mum gets tired out before me. I have 4 beds so I can choose whatever one I want and she makes me catnip toys.
What do you like to do with your human?
I love to be out in the garden with mum. I have fun playing hide and seek and playing with my wand toys. I sometimes sit on mum’s bed and she will put on relaxing music for me it makes me so relaxed.
Horatio Hedgehog always wants us to ask European cats if they know any hedgehogs. Have you ever met one?
Yes I met a hedgehog, only the one but he was gone the next day. I was very curious about this strange looking creature. I tried to paw him but it didn’t feel nice a bit prickly.
Do you have friends in the neighborhood or are they pretty much all snobs?
There is wee ginger Craig next door he had a brother who got killed up on the road. Then along came Andy a friend for Graig but he wandered away and the roaring monster got him too. So it’s just Craig who I put up with as he’s just a youngster. Saying that a white kitten appears in my garden I think to steal my catnip. No snobs here.
Is there anything you would like to add?
I’m now 11 and have enjoyed my life with my mum. I hope I have many years left. I like just being on my own as I get 100% attention.
We really enjoyed talking with Spike and hope you’ll go see him.
(His mum broke her arm, so we hope she’s better. We know humans can’t properly cuddle with those things on their arms.)

I happy you enjoyed looking at my photos.
Spike! We read your post before but did not get a Chance to comment until now! You look like my human brother’s cat Ninja! He’s a pretty cool guy too. I wish I had catnip and could go outside. But it sounds like it has been dangerous for your neighbors…stay safe!
I have never wandered away im happy here with my cat nip and bird tv and a mom who loves me.
Snoops and Kommando Kitty, I sure enjoyed your conversation with Spike. Wow he lives in Scotland and gets fresh fishes from the sea to eat?! I wanna go stay with him! That’s too bad that his mum hurt her arm, but if Spike is giving her cuddles it will heal in no time. Mew Mew hellos, Spike! We could be chat noir cousins!
Thank you! Pretty interesting guy, isn’t he?
Hi your welcome any time and we can share the cat nip and the fresh fish. Moms arm is healing with a little love and Purrs from me. Thank you for your comment.

A penetrating and revealing interview – I might vote for Spike.
That is an excellent idea. Particularly with the politicians we currently have over here.
