Likes: Treats, playing with the laser pointer, and 'boxing' with us
Pet-Peeves: He hates the vacuum cleaner, and really doesn't like when I leave the room during the night
Favorite Toy: hair ties. I spend so much money on toys and he could care less. A rubber band or twist tie just him just fine
Favorite Nap Spot: under the bed
Favorite Food: He loves Tuna sushi.
Arrival Story: I was working at a retail store on a very busy highway in central NJ when a friend came back from the bushes laughing. I asked him what was so funny and he said "oh I just fed Mr.Chips"...I had no clue what he was talking about! He told me there was a small fuzzy black kitten living under the bushes!
Long story short, that 4th of July while everyone else was enjoying fireworks I was prying a kitten out of the bushes with some sliced turkey.
I brought him home and then to the vet the following week and was told that if I hadn't rescued him he would have been dead within a matter of days. He was suffering from fleas and heart worm and was severe malnutrition.
I noticed how big his paws were right away ( kind of like a golden retriever puppy whose paws look too big for the rest of him) and brought him to a groomer to get his nails cut. I had been under the impression he was a Maine Coon but didn't quite look the same. The groomer told me she was pretty sure he was a "Chantilly/Tiffany" breed and I 'confirmed' this with my vet.
So almost two years later, Tweek is my best friend, and I love him like a child!
We call him our 'puma' because he is just such a big cat!
