Jewish Cat of the Month: Golda Meow

by Sarah Brennan / September 12, 2018

Sarah: What is your name?

Golda: My name is Golda Meow, but you can just call me Golda. I was named in homage to the illustrious Golda Meir.  I like to think I live up to her visionary legacy, don’t you? I can see in the dark, after all. 

Sarah: What’s your favorite way to spend a day in DC?

Golda: I like to hang out with Mom before she leaves for work. I’ll follow her around, sit in between the shower curtains and just generally be underfoot to get maximum Mom time. While she’s gone I have a few premium nap spots around the apartment, where I lounge until 1) the automatic feeder chimes or 2) Mom gets home from work. It takes 12-16 hours of daily beauty rest to look this good.

Sarah: What is your favorite human costume to dress up as?

Golda: Humans are the underling. I would never dress up as a human. Next question.

Sarah: What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?

Golda: I’ve been told I’m regal.  But don’t tell Mom, I don’t want her taking credit.

Sarah: What is your favorite thing to do when you think no one is looking?

Golda: I LOVE exploring the apartment building. I always try to dart out the front door. All the neighbors leave mats outside their doors for me to scratch. It’s the best adventure.

Sarah: What is your spirit animal?

Golda: Only the king of the beasts, of course. Lions are so majestic.

Sarah: What’s your favorite Jewish holiday and why? 

Golda: I’m a big fan of Passover. Can’t say I love 10 extra pairs of feet stomping around the house, but by the time they’re three glasses deep, and everyone has shuffled out of the kitchen, the brisket is on the counter and I feast! 

Between friends, I’ve been known to lend my image to different holiday greeting cards. Posing with apples & honey is easy, but I get a little curious around Chanukah candles. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m a model, but I do get paid with extra treats and live my best diva life.

Sarah: I get most excited when…

Golda: Someone opens a can of tuna. I’ll come running from anywhere in the apartment. And don’t try to pretend it’s not for me. I see you up there. And you know you’re going to give me some. Who are you kidding? I’m the master, here.
