Favorite Nap Spot: Right on the other side of the fence where the dogs can see her
Arrival Story: Cheebs appeared from the swamp near our house around 2002. He was a sore sight -- skinny, his black hair was thin and brown. We didn't like it at first since he was an interloper eating our cats' food. But he insisted that he stay and kept coming back every time we shooed him away. He made friends and enemies with our clutter, but it's all harmony again. He now has a beautiful long black coat. Hoshi was his best friend and they mostly hung out in the back yard.
Bio: We have no idea how old Cheebs is or whether it's a boy or girl. We try not to pick her up or pet her too much. If you show her any more affection than a daily hello pat, she gets aggressive with her adopted siblings. UPDATE: After a trip to the vet, Cheebs is a neutered male...so somebody else loved him, at some point! He's now a little more friendly with the other cats.
10/1/2010. After moving to a new house in July, Cheebs disappeared after a few days at the new place and just reappeared today about 11 weeks later, looking like the skinny stray that found us back in 2002.
