Micky P, Micky Purr, Mickster, Mick O'Fangs,
October 23rd 1998
Being wherever we are, tummy rubs, sleeping with us at night with his head on a pillow (he's human isn't he?) but under the covers, rousing only to wrestle w/his sister about 3 a.m.
Mick doesn't really get peeved. He's easy going about everything.
Chenille pipe cleaners twisted in fun shapes & plastic rings from milk jugs
Favorite Nap Spot:
On his "daddy's" lap
He can both Catch (jumps up and catches with front paws) AND Fetch better than many dogs! When on his back, he can extend his hind legs completely straight out appearing to be 3 ft long nose to tail! Record holder in lap-sitting!
UPDATE: Our beloved gentle, and clownish Mick became paralyzed in his hind quarters late in the evening Oct. 4, 2009. In obvious distress and pain, he was rushed to E-Clinic where he was tested and then diagnosed with saddle thrombus/aortic thromboembolism, a very sudden and life threatening condition. His prognosis for recovery was fairly hopeless and his quality of life would have been questionable, so we made the Difficult but Necessary Decision. He will be missed more than we can express, and it's sad to see Mhari without her sibling, but she's adjusting better than we'd thought.
His story: Mick and his sister Mhari 'rescued' me a few months after tragically losing a beloved Siamese. In 2000, Mick and his sister (Mhari) came to live with us via a wonderful Irish woman we met through the Retired Friends Association in CA who bred and showed Siamese and Tonkinese. She insisted they be placed together, so we got double the pleasure in these siblings. It was a perfect match! He and Mhari left CA with us, moved to WA, then traveled cross country to NC. Presently, he is now living in Texas, his catmom's home state. He's a very good traveler, unlike his sister.
Mick has little fangs which are always visible even with his mouth closed and a predominant bottom lip. He has a deep, melodic purr that he keeps well tuned. He's dopey, darling, very mellow, and likes being held on his back like a baby. He has a habit of jumping on shoulders for a free ride, but he sometimes inadvertently misses. For a Siamese, he's kind of a klutz. He's a big lover and a gentle sweetheart, and often likes to pester his sister... if she's having none of it, he's been known to attack the fuzz on the carpet or an unsuspecting teddy bear. Also, he always comes when called, velcro kitty that he is.
Mick, the mild mannered Meezer
