   Leave a treat for Francis 8/1999-7/11/2013

I have no nicknames, my name is Francis.

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Quick Bio:
-extra toe(s)

Orange & White Tabby

Eating, sleeping, being brushed with a Zoom Groom but only if my human lays on the floor to do it

Being petted at the wrong time or place, landscapers, vacuums, humans that I don't know, dirty litter box, unfamiliar sounds, being picked up.

Favorite Toy:
Featherless feather wand and catnip bags.. I don't play very much any more.

Favorite Nap Spot:
The closet the bed, a rug, on top of a fabric toy box

Favorite Food:
Boneless Chicken Breast..Canned-Fancy Feast... Dry- California Natural,

I go to my room (the closet) and wait to be coaxed out if my human is on the phone too long or I am not getting the attention I deserve. I also know the meaning of many words. Finally, I am an absolute master of inflicting a guilt trip if not catered to.


I like to have canned food during the night so I politely call my human to getup and get it. If he stupidly serves the wrong menu, I walk away. Occasionally, I'll politely call during the night if I want company but do not want to sleep on the bed.

Lives Remaining:
5 of 9

Forums Motto:
Admire me in silence and at a distance.

The Groups I'm In:
**Catstertown**, ♥All Fur Fun♥, Big, Brilliant Orange Cats Unite, MAN CATS AT WORK - No Girl Cats Allowed, Mittsonian Institute fur the Digitally Enhanced, Mixed Breed Cats, Polydactyl and Proud

I used to bite unexpectedly and for some unknown reason. I also bit my human if he petted or brushed me too long or if I didn't want to be petted or brushed at all. Now I raise my hind leg or pretend I will bite to communicate my feelings.

I refused to be petted for my first 3 years, but now I like it on my terms.

Going To My Room:
I used to be hiding half the day. Now I hide only when I hear a vacuum, the landscapers, some strange noises and if someone I don't know or like comes into the apartment.

Some stupid humans think I'm afraid of things but, because of my importance, I use the military strategy of advancing to the rear and I let humans man the front line.

My human thinks I'm moody just because on one day I want to be petted several times and the next day I don't want him near me

I've Been On Catster Since:
April 16th 2006 More than 10 years!

I Was In The:
Catster's 2006 Holiday Picture Party!

Rosette, Star and Special Gift History

Catster Id:

I am the subject of an article about furballs written by Dr. Kathleen Keefe Ternes on the website Dr. Ternes warns that hairballs are not always normal or routine for a cat and she uses my case as an example.I suggest that all my furriends read it and make their humans read it too.

I had my semi-annual senior exam last week complete with blood tests and the results are good. Several weeks ago, my insulin was reduced to one unit twice a day. I have a lot to be thankful for and, as usual, many purrs for your prayers and to my entire medical team.

....but it didn't last long. I had my B/G test today and it was too high so I'm back on 2 insulin injections every day. Maybe next time I'll go longer.Please say a prayer for me. Many purrs, Francis
