Arrival Story:
I moved to DC from the west coast and made some friends at the local consignment shop. One of the ladies there had to move to Texas for a few months to take care of her parents, she had 2 cats and had not found a place for one of them to stay. I volunteered thinking he could stay with me until she returned. I never did get ahold of her again but he has a good home here.

Tippy is a huge, white, fluffy scaredy cat. I think sometime in his life he was abused in some way. The vet also thinks something happened to his head/neck as he doesn't have full motion to turn his head. I have had him for 2 years now and he has settled in. He was real insecure at first but he has settled down quite a bit. I think he has decided since I feed him so regularly and rub him that all will be well. He's not so intimidated by his room mate Sam anymore and you actually see them sitting next to each other to bird watch.
