Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-cat rescue


Finnigan bugs me. He thinks my tail is a chew toy, and he always takes my stuff when I am busy with it.

Favorite Toy:
My Mom makes me stuffed toys with catnip. I love them. I tuck them all into my secret spot so I dont have to share them with Finnigan.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Gimme a patch of sun, or the arm of a chair or sofa and you can call me a happy cat.

Favorite Food:
Pounce treats, moist food of all varieties, and olives. (Yeah, I said olives. Dont look at me like that, they are tasty.)

I have mad skills...I do an amazing impression of a statue. A statue of a sleeping cat.


Arrival Story:
We wanted to find a companion for our other male cat, so we answered an ad and found Nietzche. He had been born to a feral cat. The man that fed the cat only wanted her around to kill mice and rats. The house he was living in was in shambles (he called in rehabbing). Punkin was the scrawniest thing you could imagine, and covered in a layer of dust and oil. It took several baths over several days to get all of the crud out of his fur.

Nietzche either didnt get enough oxygen during birth or (more likely) got into some sort of poison very early in his life. By the time he came to live with us, he had suffered brain damage. This affects his agility, and his perception. So, he is unable to balance very well, cant tell how far away things are, and seems to have a real adversity to faces. He hates to be held, but loves to sit on laps and must, must, MUST sleep in the same spot at the foot of the bed every night.
