I interviewed my big sister Jager! In this world exclusive Jager opens up about her humble beginnings and reveals her favourite (and least favourite) things.
B: How did you end up living with mum and dad?
J: Mum was flatting at the time. Her flatmate’s friend rang up one day to say that a cat had given birth to a litter of kittens under their house. When the kittens were big enough mum went around and tried to coax one out. I was the only one that came out from under the house. Mum put me in a shoebox and took me home.
B: What was it like leaving your family?
J: I was really scared at first but soon mum and I became good friends. The flat we lived in was a villa with a long hallway and mum and I used to chase each other up and down the hall.
B: Where did the name Jager come from?
J: It was a coin-toss between Jager and Sake. Mum was a bit more of a bogan back then. (Jager’s short for Jagermeister, and it also means master hunter – which I am not.)
B: Can you tell me some of your cat tricks?
J: Possibly. What do you want to know?
B: How do you get through the cat flap?
J: Basically you just have to grow. You are too small to go through the cat flap just yet.
B: Why do you eat my food when your food is actually tastier?
J: How do you know my food is tastier?
B: I don’t.
J: That’s not true. I’ve seen you eat it.
B: I was just testing it to make sure it wasn’t poisonous.
J: That’s why I was eating your food too.
B: How old are you, and have you changed as you’ve gotten older?
J: I’m over ten years old now. I’ve become a bit smoochier as I’ve grown older.
B: What’s your favourite thing to do?
J: I really enjoy sleeping under the fern in the garden, but sometimes mum and dad water it while I’m under there because they can’t see me. I also like sneaking into the bed when mum and dad are asleep and making myself ‘the little spoon’. I have noticed you trying to sleep on the bed lately too, and there will be trouble if that continues.
B: What’s your least favourite thing?
J: Having my tail attacked by annoying kittens.
B: Sorry about that.
J: You will be.
Hello, my name's Bruce. Mum found me when I was just one day old. She and my dad are keeping me warm and fed with help from my other new human friends.
