Skills: Houdini was clicker trained. He could shake hands, etc. He could drink from the faucet.
Arrival Story: Houdini was bought at a pet store before my consciousness was raised. He was brought in with a litter of kittens, and the store sold the litter. Houdini got his name honestly because he used to let himself out of the cages. The store owners would find him roaming around in the enclosure (cageless) when they came in each morning. He also escaped from pet carriers. I used to come and gaze at him whenever I could. I really wanted to buy him. Then some man said he wanted THAT cat. I quickly made decided to buy him. I have always thought the guy was trying to get me to make a decision.
Bio: Houdini died at 20 years old. He was a wonderful cat. The best cat I have ever had, maybe ever will have.
