Arrival Story:
adopted him from Paw's Place, an adoption group/ rescue organization, in May 2005

His previous owner had been a disabled woman who called him "my baby", hence his name. He was brought to Paw's Place when his owner went into a nursing home and her relatives didn't want to keep him. He has always been an indoor cat and I think he was used to his previous owner being home all the time, or he still remembers being in the shelter, because he gets separation anxiety sometimes. He can be bullied by cats even smaller but him yet territorial, but I once saw him smack the hell out of a cats-friendly female german shepherd about 5x his weight/size He was diagnosed with asthma memorial day weekend 2009 after a night of labored breathing and constant surveillance- he now needs a steroid shot every 2 months and salmon-flavored albuterol liquid via syringe 2x/day.
