To play in water. Phoebe loves to play in the sink or tub. She waits patiently in between the shower curtains when either of us in the shower and jumps into the tub when you turn off the shower.She also loves the milk at the bottom of daddy's cereal bowl

Being picked up-she likes lovies on her terms, car rides to the vet, and loud noises, especially whistling.

Favorite Toy:
Mice, and has just discovered catnip,milk tabs and her round toy that has a track with a ball inside it, she bats at that for hours.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Phoebe loves to nap wherever the sun is shining through and on mommy's lap at night. Occasionally she will sleep between Mommy & Daddy like she used to.

Favorite Food:
Friskies wet food w/chicken & tuna and her Iams Multi cat. She likes beef flavored treats.

She sits on her haunches or stands up for minutes at a time if something peaks her interest. She loves to sit in front of the computer and "help" mommy type.


Arrival Story:
I started volunteering at the nokill shelter where she was born in September. Her shelter name was Princess. She and her brother were left out of the three born to her mother at the shelter. The mother was also still there. I found out that they both had heart murmurs and was worried that they would not get a home because of their heart condition. I already had two male cats, so my husband relunctantly agreed to get a third, but only if it was a female. So, by this time a month and a half had went by and I finally asked the Shelter manager, Marilyn if she was still available and she said a woman was coming in on saturday to look at her, if she didn't take her that she would definately be ours. Well, I got lucky, Marilyn called me saturday afternoon and said the woman didn't show up and didn't even call, so we went down sunday and as soon as my husband saw her, he fell in love with her and she became part of our family.

Phoebe was born at Neady cats, a no-kill cat shelter in Princeton, MA She was one of three kittens born to Ebony. All three kittens were polydactals, all though Ebony was not. Phoebe has a longer tail than most cats. Which is cute on her considering her petite stature. Phoebe has the most characteristics of her mother, she looks like her in facial structure, size (small stature) and voice. The only difference is that Ebony is all black and Phoebe is tortiose shell in color. Phoebe loves to run and attack her two older brothers, Sebastian and Gizmo, especially while they are basking in the sunbeams on the living room floor. She loves to snuggle with both of them, but prefers Sebastian, her oldest brother. Phoebe is know as the "tease" in the house. Since she is so petite and cute alot of people want to hold her and pet her and she knows it. If someone calls her over to them, she comes close but just enough where she can escape (thus daddy calls her If I call her she will drop over and lie on the floor and wait to be petted.

This past weekend mommy and daddy started having our living room flooring redone. It was awful! They moved all of the furniture into the other rooms and I kept trying to catch a scent to make sure that all the stuff was really ours. Everyone kept shooing me out of the room and there were too many people there, it was very confusing. Then came the loud banging noises when daddy started nailing the floor boards in. I ran into mommy and daddy's room and laid on the bed. Surely, that noise can't get me in here? I felt better when Bazzy and Gizzy came and laid on the bed with me. Later mommy came in the room and watched TV, it felt good to get snuggles. I won't tell mommy that, though, or she will keep picking me up!
