Let’s Go Global with Curious Zelda
Meet our new friend @curiouszelda in the latest in our latest Let’s Go Global. Zelda is a true multi-hyphenate: social media star/agony aunt/yoga teacher/poet. She lives in London, England and has just written her first book!
CatCon: How old are you, and where do you live?
Curious Zelda: I’m around 8 or 9, from London.
Tell us how you met your human(s).
We had an intense staring match at the Mayhew rescue shelter. They were warned not to be put off by my permanently spooked expression, which I found a little startling. I slowly approached the humans, sniffed their hands for a while and decided they were acceptable. I may have let out a purr or two – how embarrassing!
Do you have any siblings? Tell us a bit about them.
In my previous home I lived with my brother, but we’ve since lost touch. I’m always on the lookout for relatives and will fixate on any cat or owl resembling me.
What’s your typical day like?
No two days are the same, but I usually get started around the time my humans go to bed. I’ll begin with half an hour of circuit training and then move on to curtain climbing, furniture destruction and hunting. Around 4am I’ll head upstairs for singing practice. It’s then an anxious wait until breakfast – if I get peckish I’ll have a nibble on the fern. I do love a mid-morning nap while the humans are out, although equally happy birdwatching and knocking over ornaments until they return for dinner. In the evenings I spy on my humans, just to make sure they’re behaving. I do enjoy sitting on their laps too if the mood is right and there’s no noise, no movement, the right temperature, etc.
Who are your heroes (animal, human, or fictional)?
I love Ricky Gervais, Bob Mortimer, and the piano stool.
What is your motto in life?
Life is like a sock draw – you only get out what you put in. In my book I show you how to live your best curious life. After all, anything can be interesting depending on your purrspective:
“I’m feeling bored
Not much to do
I tilt my head
The world is new” – Curious Zelda
Do you have a favorite toy? And on that note, are you more “Team Bag” or “Team Box”
What are toys? Everything is ALIVE!
Team Box! Sometimes we need to think inside the box.
Curious Zelda’s first book, The Adventures of a Curious Cat was published by Little, Brown on October 31st, and is available here.
