... humping Squint, unfortunately. He loves to play, too! w/Everyone!
Daily groomings and face cleanings!!!
The other cats! hee hee hee He loves the tunnels and lit ball that goes around the circle thing with the cardboard in the middle - all toys!
Favorite Nap Spot:
On my side of the bed during the day.
Innova Red, chicken, tuna juice - ANYthing, I believe
He can make you fall in love with him in an instant! He hugs around the neck!
The picture of him at the shelter was heart-wrenching (See Bottom Picture - it was Love at first site). I'd never seen a cat with this type of mouth as it was opened - he looked to be crying in pain for someone to get him.
Well, I went, he stunk worse than the biggest sewer leak you can imagine (had ringworm treatements, among other things), he was filthy - in his picture he looks dark cream colored, but he's a full red-point (or flame-point) Himalayan. He had been there 4 months; a week after I adopted him, his real owners came forward, told the shelter he had gotten out when they moved here to California from New York, that he is a show cat, showed his papers, etc. (he had lost one eye from that "accidental letting him out").
Shelter called me saying I didn't have to call them, but I did, but warily because they obviously did not vigorously look for him because 4 months had gone by and he was in that shelter almost all of that time. They begged for him back (after I got his giardia, fleas, 5 baths done to reveal his true color). I did give them a chance as long as they PROMISEDC never to let him outside again and to keep in touch with me and let me call them to see how he's doing.
Ended up they called me one time months later saying he'd gotten out again (during our worst storm - it was a really bad one and Chief Red Cloud (they named "Kitty) was out in this awful lightening and thunder storm with that thick triple coat. I immediately put pictures up on 2 places in Craigslist with 4 pictures each, urgently trying to find him. Someone saw my ad, a little elderly lady whose garage Chief Red Cloud fortunately found after 3 days.
I got a call from the shelter where the little elderly lady took him (over an hour from where I live and about 1 block or less than a mile from where they live), picked him up (he was still microchipped to me anyways), the original owners never made one step, like last time, to check with any of the shelters, put up ads, etc.
I called them when I got home from his vet appointment (this time he got giardia, more matts, more fleas, etc. from being out in the elements with that thick triple coat in the heavy lightening/thundery rains. I was a bit p.o.'d this time, but did call them to let them know I found he was taken to the shelter near their house. The man asked me if he was still there; I said to him: "No, Chief Red Cloud is home now."
That was the last time I spoke with them. The guy admitted to 3 additional times Chief Red Cloud "escaped". Now that Chief Red Cloud couldn't "Show" anymore because of the one eye; and they could not breed him anymore because he had been neutered at the shelter, I felt certain they lost concern and care about him since he "escaped" and ran away so manyb times.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, literally, I had to adopt out Chief Red Cloud. I had a choice and it was deathly hard, but I chose to keep the special needs cats who would never get adopted and Fuzz who's been with me for 15 years. The cats I adopted out all have loving homes now.
He is a whimsical playful guy - just plays tough for my guys who are a bit more mellow and will ... cover anyone that will let him. (I'm working on stopping that as he is very aggressive with that, too).
He LOVES to play all the time, though, but some of the others aren't used to his way of playing yet. (Just wait 'till his second summer cut, bwaaaaaa ha ha haa haaaaaa). He's a really nice guy - never has his ears back or wanting to fight at all, he just plays hard. Fuzz just can't stand the site of him... it's getting a little better, but every once in awhile I have to go "break it up" as fur is flyin'. Just those two.

I like to hug around the neck!
