I would open the trash drawer with my paw & pull out trash or open cupboard door & pull out cereal for Pixel & me.

Thanks so much Jodie and Jinny for agreeing to these interviews!


  1. Awww Herman, that was the bestest intermiew! Thanx u so furry much!

  2. Oh that is just a wonderful interview. You are so cute JinJin. Love Petie and Mama

  3. Wonderful interview Herman!!!! I learned so much about JinJin & her family Thank you

  4. Awww we love JinJin and Pixel. - SMOOCH SMOOCH Great interview Herman.

  5. Hey Herman! As always, a wonderful interview. Jin Jin, my sister Mason & brother Seville are VERY INTERESTED in your ability to steal shoes. They're both shoe fiends themselves but until now, have had to rely upon the peep leaving her shoes around for them to find. Any pointers?

    1. I'm most successful when I go directly to the source -- the Closet.
      It takes some pawxterity & practice, but getting that closet door open reveals untold shoe treasures!


So Wonderpurr of you to stop by! Thank you for commenting.

Don't Mess Wif Me!
