Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-pound cat

April 18th 2003

Playing, getting into trouble, watching birds, FOOD, napping in the sun, his mom

Going to the vet!

Favorite Toy:
Anything is a toy

Favorite Nap Spot:
Anywhere, especially if there's someone around

Favorite Food:
ANYTHING is his favorite food. Even likes to gnaw on plastic bag handles.

VERY smart, knows "down", "come", "sit", "no", "leave it", and ALWAYS comes when called. He gives eskimo kisses and head-butts.


Arrival Story:
I was working at the shelter and met Yuri in Isolation. He was very sick and I think the manager wanted to euthanize him. We bonded very quickly and I LOVED the way he stepped out of the cage onto my shoulder. To this day, as big as he is, he will lay on my shoulders sometimes. I had to bring him home. :)

Yuri is the most playful and rambunctious cat I've ever seen. I often wonder if/when he will EVER grow up. He loves the dogs and cats and doesn't have a mean bone in his body. I've only ever heard him hiss once, when I brought Sowen into the house. He was afraid of Sowen. Now they play. :) He's so cute. Mouthy, too. When he sees birds/chipmunks (outside OR inside birds, btw), his tail starts thumping hard and he opens his mouth and makes these weird little noises. So adorable. He also has a "Y" on his left shoulder, which is odd because as a baby he DIDN'T have it, it was just a line. He got his name because he was soooo sick with an Upper Respiratory Infection "URI" and I put a Y in front of that. I know, so horrible, right?? He's so gorgeous, isn't he? :)

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
