MISS KITTY: Though her given name is Cozimo, Indy Art Director Tamara Weaver’s kitty is known by many monikers: “My husband and I also call her Snurple, Beans, and Pants, or some combination of those words,” Weaver said. Cozimo lives a rich (fantasy) life, according to her owners. “She currently holds jobs as a sushi chef, an astronaut, and CEO of a Fortune 500 company,” Weaver said. “She plays keyboard in an experimental art rock group … She’s talkative but doesn’t speak English very well.” According to her owner, Cozimo also talks to the moon and has numerous grooming poses, with names like “pork chop,” “back stroke/sea otter,” and “penguin.”  She adores string and face snuggles but is not a “cat person.”
