How Much Do You Know About Cats?

Hi everyone! I have a quiz for you today. I was recently contacted by The Pet Community blog and offered a quiz to share. It is only 10 questions and I figured I would ace it being that I live with so many cats, but I got about 4 correct out of 10. I thought it would be fun to share with all of you cat lovers. Phoebe is going to have a contest based on the quiz on Thursday. Here is the link to the quiz:

Could you please purr and pray for my hubby? He hasn’t been feeling well and I finally got him to go the Doctor today , then he got sent for an ultrasound of his leg. He has a deep vein thrombosis ( blood clot) in his leg. He had one in the same leg 8 years ago.

In other news, I also had an appointment today for my allergy shot. The Doctor looked in my ears and I have 2 cat hairs on one of my ear drums- I assume they are Sammy’s being that he sleeps on my head πŸ™‚




    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers for my hubby. I think I am becoming a cat πŸ™‚ XO

  1. My human got 8 of 10 right – can you believe she missed the one about how many vocal sounds we make? She listens to us all the time – she should know better!

    1. You did better than I did. No, I didn’t know the cat hair was there. Thank you for the prayers for my hubby. XO

  2. Mom got 70% correct on the quiz. If she gone with her first answer on one of the questions she would have got 80%. Oh wow, Mom says she’ll add the hubby to her prayer list. That DVT is very scary. Finally, will it hurt your eardrum with the two cat hairs on it? Does the doctor need to remove them? Can you feel them? Mom will add you, Ellen, to her prayer list as well. Also sending POTP. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    1. Your mOm did very well on the quiz.Thank you for the prayers for the hubby. No need to pray for me, the hair is no big deal, I just need to use an ear cleaner. I didn’t even know they were there πŸ™‚ XO

  3. Purrs and prayers are coming your way for your hubby. That is a scary tthing to go through. Cat hairs on the ear drum…..hmmmn, never heard of that one. Purrs and prayers for you too. I didn’t take the quiz yet and should have. i’ll pop back in after I have and let you know the score.

    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers for the hubby. I had never heard of cat ears on the ear drum either. πŸ™‚ XO

  4. That was a fun quiz. I got half of them right which actually is more than I thought I would get! I hope your hubby’s leg will be taken care of – kind of a scary thing (my hubby has had that too!)………..I guess hair on the ear drum is one of those little irritations that happens when there are 13 cats around the house (tee hee).

    Hugs, Pam

    1. You did better than me on the quiz πŸ™‚ That is a scary thing with the blood clot. I didn’t even know there was hair in my ear :)XO

  5. We are sending lots and lots of purrs and prayers to your husband! And to you for your allergies as well! It’s strange the places cat hair ends up, but at the same time not all that surprising. I got a 10 out of 10 on the quiz, but I also studied that kind of stuff in college and worked at at cat clinic, so it’s kind of ingrained in me. Happy Tuesday to all of you!

    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers for my hubby. I am impressed that you got a perfect score- you know your cats πŸ™‚

  6. Praying for your husband, i’m sure a deep vein thrombosis is not fun at all. Neither is hair in your ears, your own or a cat’s hair. The quiz looks like fun to save for after work.

    1. Thank you for the prayers for my hubby. I didn’t even know about the cat hair, it wasn’t bothering me. πŸ™‚

  7. OH NOES! Ellen’s Hubby; wishing you all the best! And about those cat hairs in your ears…I think you are just metamorphosing into a cat…wouldn’t that be neat? I scored 8 of 10; didn’t know heartbeats or breeds…but there is only one breed for me: ADOPTED!

    1. I agree, adopted is the best breed πŸ™‚ You did well on the quiz. Thanks you for the good wishes for my hubby. XO

    1. That surprised me too about the 100 sounds. Thank you for the positive thoughts. XO

  8. Ellen for sure we are sending purrs and prayers to your husband. Thank goodness you got him to go to the doctor.

    What will you do about the cat hairs on your eardrum? Do they bother you itch or tickle?
    hugs Cecilia

    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers. XO
      The cat hair wasn’t bothering me, she said it can cause a cough- I need to use an ear cleaner.

  9. Prayers for hubby. I hope this is resolved soon.

    What are they going to do about the kitty hairs in your ear?

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the kitties. ☺

  10. Fun quiz! I got 8 answers correct, but I admit, there were some lucky guesses πŸ™‚
    I’m sorry to hear about your husband. Sending prayers. xo

  11. guyz….we send purrayerz a plentee for yur dad N hope de stooooooopid clot will dizz solve N go a way N knot come bak like ever; knot even ina million yeerz ever…..we hope de doc dood gived yur dad a plan oh actshun ta take for de bass terd clot ~~~~ β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯

  13. Mom got 60#. And of course, we will purray for your husband to get past this quickly. PS: you could think of the furry eardrum as a badge of honor!

    1. Thank you for the prayers for my hubby. I did think of the ears as a badge of honor- I immediately said, good, I have something to blog about πŸ™‚ You did better than me on the quiz.

  14. Prayers for your husband – glad you got him to the doctor NOW instead of later ! Only got 50% on the quiz – must’ve been inhaling too many litter box fumes. Someone asked f the cat hairs bothered you – probably not until the doctor told you they were there !

    1. Thank you for the prayers, they are greatly appreciated. Funny thing is my other ear started hurting after she said that πŸ™‚

  15. Furst and furmost, we’re sendin’ lots of purrayers fur hubby. Secondly, what’s dat mean ’bout da cat furs on your ear drum? Is dat harmful? Are ya’ gonna be okay? Do you have to have them removed? Ya’ know, more info purrlease. And thirdly, mommy made a 90 on da quiz. One of da answers didn’t have accurate infurmation, so she chose da one closest to da right answer and they counted it as wrong. Anyways, big hugs to all.

    Luv ya’

    1. Thank you for praying for my hubby. The cat hairs in my ear are nothing, but she noticed them when she looked inside my ears. She said sometimes that can cause a cough. I do cough a lot so maybe I have had them for a while. I need to use ear cleaner πŸ™‚ Good job on the quiz. Which # was incorrect?XO

    1. Thank you for the prayers. I always joke that I have a furball cough πŸ™‚ XO

        1. We will be praying that she feels better soon, the flu is awful. She is lucky to have you as a purramedic. I have been trying to take care of my Dad. I sit near him and purr- I don’t do laps πŸ™‚ XO

  17. Petcretary got 80%…but might have gotten 100% if she had paid more attention,MOL!

    We are purring and pawyering hard for your hubby. DVT’s are dangerous and scary. Hope he won’t have to go to the hospital.

  18. Sending prayers right on their way to your Husband! I got a 60% on the test and it could have been lower than that… I guessed at a couple and lucked out with the green check mark! I think our ears collect a lot of stuff we don’t know about… πŸ™‚

    1. I got a 40 on the test so you did better than me. My Dr. said a lot of people get bugs in their ears- ick.

  19. Our Mama got 90% correct on the quiz! She didn’t know how many vocal sounds a cat makes…just as we suspected! She never LISTENS to us!!;p

    Hope your Daddy is ok.and we our sending him good vibes and thoughts. We will read the next few posts in the hope that he is !

    the critters in the cottage xo

  20. What a test. We got 7 outta 10.

    We are purring and wishing the best for your hubby. This is a hell of a problem and hope he is over it shortly.

    Shoko and Kali

  21. Sending prayers and purrs for your husband. DVT are not to be taken for granted
    I had one 3 years ago along with a pulmonary embolism a double whammy. I got a 90% on the quiz,

  22. Maybe you are growing cat hairs and becoming a kitty! Hope they were not dangerous and I hope so much that your sweet husband can get fixed…uh…repaired in his leg. They have things for that, right? Blood thinners? Anyway, good vibrations for both of you and the kitties.

    1. I wouldn’t mind being a cat πŸ™‚ Yes, hubby is on blood thinners, thank you. XO
