When Heinrich Von Katz arrived at Crumbs & Whiskers, he quickly stole the heart of every woman here, including our employees! But sadly, he wasn’t a one-woman cat. His wandering eyes were always looking at the ladies. ALL the ladies.
Heinrich’s favorite activity was finding a beautiful woman's lap to sleep on. During his time at Crumbs & Whiskers, women were often seen in tears when it was their time to leave Heinrich. Heinrich, on the other hand, was seen moving on to the next lap, purring and eager to snuggle with a new love-struck lady.
When it was announced that Heinrich was going to his furrever home, some of the employees took it very hard. Veronica, in particular, was a mess. She cried for days and is still working through her feelings with our resident psychologist kitty, Raleigh.
So many heartbroken women wanted another glimpse of this Scottish hunk that we asked his furrever lady to give us an update.
Jose Lugo, his furrever hooman, tells us what Heinrich is up to these days. Since leaving C&W, Heinrich Von Katz now goes by Mackinnon.
C&W: How have things changed since Mackinnon's first day at his new home vs. today?
JL: Mackinnon has travelled to his second home with me in Florida and met his fur brothers and sister. He’s a little playful for the older bunch, but everyone seems to be getting along well. My Rottweiler Ruby has a crush on Mackinnon. When Mackinnon struts by Ruby whines for attention, but alas, it is unrequited love.
C&W: What's your favorite thing about Mackinnon?
JL: My favorite thing about Mackinnon is his cuddliness. When he’s picked up his body becomes completely limp and flexible and he just goes whichever way you hold him. To me, it is a sign of trust.
C&W: Cats are highly entertaining pets. What's the funniest thing that Mackinnon has done?
JL: Just watching the dynamics unfold as everyone gets to know each other is super entertaining. Mackinnon pounces down on LB from the countertop then runs off in the other direction, as if to playfully taunt him. But LB is older -- and TBH a bit tubby -- and can’t retaliate, so that is fun to watch
C&W: Have you guys gotten into a routine? What’s Mackinnon’s favorite spot in your home? Favorite toy? Favorite place to sleep?
JL: We have gotten into a routine. Mackinnon sleeps in my bedroom and like clockwork when it’s bedtime I walk in the bedroom and he is lying there like, “I’ve been waiting for you.” His favorite spot, which is also his favorite place to sleep, is on top of a soft-sided Eddie Bauer carry-on under my bed. His favorite toys are, sadly to say, the lizards running about on my lanai.
C&W: So ... here's the big question. Are you ready to adopt your next cat from Crumbs & Whiskers?! ;)
JL: At this point I have a menagerie! No more cats for me for a long while!
It's crazy to think that this handsome guy is now a one-woman man. We didn't think it could be done. You did well, furrever hooman. You. Did. Well.
(No, we're totally not jealous. Why would you ever think that?!)
