Happy Cat: Welcome home minion, yoo can has Featured User Blog Post.
A strong chorus of purring rises from the assembled Lolcats

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
Well, I am afraid is not that interesting. Lexi is one of my cats, a very temperamental and stubborn Calico, and I added 05 to make a fancier name.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I`ve been a proud member of the Cheezburger community since July 2011. I’m a huge animal lover, especially a cat lover, and I am addicted to the Internet. I found ICHC thanks to my cat Frodo. He made me wanna find out if there were more people like myself. And there are!!! I was thrilled to find out that cats rule the Internet, that there are millions and millions of people who aren’t shy about showing their love for these fascinating and mysterious little critters. And this fueled my search for interesting websites that are built around cats. When I discovered Cheezburgers, I had a revelation. I confess that up to that moment, I hadn’t heard of a Lolcat. ICHC it`s so terribly interesting and so funny! I hit the right spot! I bought myself a LOLcat Bible, and the rest is history!

What do you look for in a Cheez friend and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
Being an animal lover is a must.  I don’t accept requests from  people with blank profiles. I look over their lols and their pictures, and I try to find common ground.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
Lolcats, of course! But I also love Animal Capshunz, HotDog and There, I Fixed It.

What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy
First of all, my friends. I came across so many awesome people.  We support one another. I love their sense of humor, their funny LOLs. And I love JeffCatsBookClub. I have so much fun here. Then, ICHC is very useful. Jack, the cat that was lost by American Airlines in JFK Terminal 8, is a very good example. We made LOLs that we shared wherever we could. Many Cheezburger community members were involved in his search. Unfortunately, Jack succumbed to the effects of two months of malnutrition.

Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
I don’t know how interesting this is, but it’s a funny story. In high school, we went on a trip. Of course, in the night, after our teacher went to sleep, we put a little party together. The guys brought some booze. Late at night, after a certain number of empty bottles, we heard a loud knock on our door. We hid the bottles and opened the door. There was this policeman in our room. He asked us what we were doing, in this very authoritative voice, and told us that we should go to bed, and that he would let our teacher know what we were doing. To our surprise, he was more drunk than we were, and he didn’t find the hidden bottles. We went to bed, wondering what explanations we were gonna give the teacher. We found nothing good enough to get us out of trouble. I fell asleep and dreamed about THE PERFECT SOLUTION. Everything was gonna be OK, I was going to become the heroine of that day! Unfortunately, when I woke up, I forgot what the ULTIMATE EXCUSE that I’d dreamed about the entire night! My classmates tried to help me remember it. All for nothing. We were going to get our punishment (no more parties, no more trips, grounded till you’re 30!!!). But the cop, probably because he was too drunk, didn’t go tell the teacher about us. So we got off easy. I still laugh remembering that!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
Cheezburgers with plenty of cheese and French fries.

If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
Private messages! I’d love to send private messages, as I’m not comfortable with posting something personal that can be seen by everyone.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I love reading, spending time with my friends. Friends are very important to me. I love listening to good music, no matter what the genre might be. I love watching interior decoration TV shows, and old (and not only) sitcoms. I have a passion for cacti and succulent plants. I like going to the flea market and antique fairs.

Where do you often find inspiration for your lols?
Usually, from my cats, (especially Frodo, who was for me the ultimate LOLcat), looking at the pictures you post, looking at the pictures posted by my Cheez friends.

Do you have any favorite vacation spots? Is there somewhere you’ve never been that you’d like to go?
I love going to the seaside. I love laying on the hot sand, and taking long walks on the beach. I really want to see New York City, I think it’s fabulous. I love skyscrapers, especially Art Deco ones.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Oh, that’s an easy question. I’d move to New York.

Do you have any animal companions, or have you had any in the past? What is special about them?
I’ve had pets ever since I was born! My family is crazy about animals. We’ve had cats, and also dogs, canaries, parrots, hamsters, mice, even a bat. When I was little I had a pet bumblebee. But cats have a special place in our family.  The first was my tomcat Mishu, who used to share my cradle when I was a baby, and was terrified of mice. Betty, a beautiful black and white girl, very feisty, smart and picky, brave like a lioness. Tom, a sweet little love bug, the clumsiest cat you can imagine. He discovered that flushing the toilet is a lot of fun. Then, there was Gipsy, my black panther, the smartest cat I ever had. When mom would badmouth her sometimes, my dad would say “Stop talking like that about that cat, she gets it!” And she did! I could write a book about her, maybe I will. And the love of my life, Frodo, so big and awesome, fat, smart, gorgeous and super affectionate, who, as stated before, is the reason why I discovered the wonderful Cheezburger community. I lost him 2 years ago, and miss him every day. At the moment, I have 4 cats, all rescued off the street, each with their own personality: Lexi, a fiesty Calico, a sweet tabby boy Moty, my little wild black beauty Blackie Midnight, and the most recent addition to the family, Sasha Wolfie, my little werewolf-like kitten, a major popcorn lover.

Any favorite authors, genres or books? What are you reading right now? Favorite authors?
Such a tough question. Here are a few names: Jane Austen, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Jack Kerouac, Edith Wharton, Emile Zola, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ray Bradbury, Harper Lee, JRR Tolkien. When it rains, I like reading Agatha Christie. I like reading biographies and autobiographies. At the moment I’m reading Sarah Orne Jewet-A White Heron and other stories.

Do you have a favorite joke, story or lol that showcases your self proclaimed strange sense of humor?
About my quirky sense of humor. I wrote that to warn people, not to show off 🙂 I sometimes crack weird jokes, not always understood by anyone. Want examples? I`ll choose a few of my lols.

We’re all addicted to the Internet, what are some of your other favorite Interwebz haunts?
Facebook, of course. I have wonderful facebook friends. Is another place to laugh and have fun, but most important of all, we fight against animal cruelty.

Thanks for the lovely interview Lexi05! Have a great weekend everyone, don’t think about Monday.

Cheers,
Cheezburger
