We’ve asked our #TundraCats authors and illustrators to tell us a little bit more about their favorite felines. Today, we’re meeting Olivia Chin Mueller’s puffy cat.
What is your cat’s name?
Her real name is Minoku, but now she just goes by Minnow!
How old is your cat?
Minnow is 6 years old! I got her when she was only 3 days old!
Which #TundraCats book is your cat’s favorite?
Her favorite is of course Princess Puffybottom … and Darryl because her picture is in it! She’s famous!
What is your cats greatest strength?
Minnow is very good at eating bugs, keeping me warm, and covering my clothes with fur!
What is your cats favorite thing to eat?
Minnow likes to eat any treats that are round and can roll around on the floor! This way she can chase them around before she eats them. But she also enjoys eating house centipedes!
What is your cats weakness?
She is not smart at all! But I love her that way, she is perfect!
