Likes: Simon likes being rubbed all over very roughly. He purrs loudly during these rubs. He also loves getting on the kitchen table and then being chased off. He almost laughs out loud as he runs from the kitchen!
Pet-Peeves: Simon has two pet peeves: he hates it when his asks for a treat and is ignored and he hates it when he gets awakened during one of his many, many naps!
Favorite Toy: Simon likes his treat ball but he loves batting and tossing his squeaking mouse about the house.
Favorite Nap Spot: Simon likes to sleep on the couch, on his cat tree, and at night, with my husband and I on our bed.
Favorite Food: Simon won't have anything to do with a raw diet or even canned cat food, but he loves to lick a bit of plain Greek yogurt!
Skills: He has many special skills: he can tell time (wakes me up every morning at 5:45 a.m.; he can jump high (onto things he shouldn't be jumping onto); he can talk (sits under his treats' drawer and very clearly demands treats by saying, "mine, mine, MINE!)
Arrival Story: I was visiting the local SPCA in the hopes I would find a(not a young kitten but a young adult)cat. I wasn't looking for any particular breed; I was looking for a cat that would connect with me and me with him or her. Simon was called 'Uno' by the SPCA staff. I like to think there was a connection between us when we first met. He was a handsome fellow who was a friendly as could be...we both knew that I would be sharing my life with him. He arrived at the Shelter on March 15th and he was at home by March 21st. It's as though he has always been a part of my life ~ he was comfortable and showed ownership of his new home about an hour after his arrival! He loves his new name and always comes when called. Simon is "Momma's Big Boy" my "Handsome Fella" and my special "Babe". I wonder what life would be without him...I just can't imagine....
