Q and A with Vinny Toobad
Who are you?
I am Vinny Toobad pedigree street cat from Brixton in London. I was homeless and diagnosed with FIV and was jailed by the vet. I live with chef now in Edinburgh.
I dont meow but when I want something I will scratch your hand, or when I want food I sit in front of the bowl and lick my lips.
Chicken livers and tuna. Occasional forest fruit yoghurt and wheat grass. Chef cooks the livers pink yum. Of course fried chicken. Beef makes me aggressive but I like it, some days chef looks like a self harmer I slash him up so bad when I am beefed.
I only drink from tall glasses and my tail makes a curious corkscrew motion while I drink.
Where do you sleep?
During night I sleep with chef, during the day I sleep in a secret blanket lined cat bunker, no one ever sees me enter or leave the cat bunker, it is secret, I also keep a selection of toys in there, I hoard stuff.
Ju Jitsu and some Wing Chung, I like killing mice, chef tried to impose a catch and release policy on my mice, so last one I dragged around for 6 hours before chef could catch me, now all mice die. Any animal that comes in the flat is dead, I even spit at humans sometimes.
Yes I spit, I spit on chef, I spit on myself, I spit on strangers. Chef likes it.
Hoovers, laptops, bin bags, Felix with veg(makes me fart)
Bird watching, attacking chef, eating, sleeping.
