AN INTERVIEW WITH TOOKI
“WELL I SEE TREES OF GREEN AND RED ROSES TOO. I’LL WATCH THEM BLOOM FOR ME AND YOU. AND I THINK TO MYSELF. WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD”
Somewhere Over The Rainbow | Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
What is your favourite toy and why?:
Empty water bottles - except I always have to take the lid off first and the label - I hate that stuff. Then I destroy what’s left!! I see humans always putting these things to their mouth so I thought I should see what all the fuss is about. I love it!
How does it feel to be the most desirable pet on earth?:
What can I say - have you seen my face! I love the attention usually the humans just sit and laugh at me, I must be a pretty funny guy.
What is the funniest thing you have ever done?:
I know my parents love it when I get really excited I jump up and down on the spot really fast almost like I’m dancing with excitement. That seems to make them laugh the most. - every time they pull out a camera though to capture it I stop - haha jokes on them!
What is the naughtiest thing you have ever done?:
I love eating lots of rugs and pillows in the house - and when I get caught I get in big trouble. Eating things I probably shouldn’t Is my bit of naughty but I’m a very good listener and good boy usually.
If you could be anything or anyone in the world who or what would that be and why?:
I would be a world star footy player. I love to sit and watch them on tv running around. I could watch that all day! I love their coloured jerseys.
Who is your favourite family member and why?:
My dad for sure! He is so much fun and hangs out with me the most. I love going to work with him and following him around.
If you could be granted three wishes, what they be?:
1. Unlimited empty water bottles and toilet rolls
2. To have my own tv to watch all day long
3. To always sleep.
If you won lotto, how would you spend the money?:
More water bottles and a 100" TV!
What did you last dream about?:
I dreamt I was on a beach just staring at an ocean! No one could distract me.
What do you think your human family members dream about?:
If you were to write a reference for your human parents what would it say?:
Always laughing, pulling funny faces and speaking in funny voices. Fun to be around but they can get too bossy at times.
What would your autobiography be called?:
“Living the life with Mr Tooks”
Where is your favourite place to sleep?:
In this perfect patch of morning sunlight in front of a window so I can watch the world go by. But then sometimes I get too hot so I move next to a couch but it’s always in the way so I have to push it all the way back.
What's your favourite thing to do when the rest of the family is asleep?:
Run a muck with my two aunties (1 x husky and 1 x newfoundland) They sleep too much so I always have to try get them up and moving!
You're home alone. What's the first thing you do?:
Go straight for dads shoes!!
What did you think of your Tame & Wild Studio experience? :
It was so much fun! But I was missing all the action I don’t know why everyone wanted to be so far away from me and when I tried joining them they kept pushing me back! But being high on the stage above the humans was awesome.
