Likes: To stay in my cat carrier. Most cats don't like their carriers, but I sure do. It's my favorite place in the house! I also love to be paid attention to and petted (I'm not the kind of cat who likes being ignored!) and drinking from my water fountain.
Pet-Peeves: Lily Rose, she bugs me so much! How dare she? I was here first. Now there's a cat who never learned to respect her elders. I also don't like the outside cats that encroach on my property- like that Frank.
Favorite Toy: Catnip mice! I have a ton of them.
Favorite Nap Spot: My cat carrier, of course. I already mentioned that it was my favorite place. Also, Lily can't sneak up on me or jump on me when I'm there.
Favorite Food: I like dry cat food best.
Skills: I like to drink out of my water fountain. Every time I drink from it I announce it. I am also a champion purrer (Can be heard from across the room!) and I do an odd "silent meow" thing sometimes where I open my mouth to meow but no sound comes out.
Arrival Story: My people got me from an elderly man who couldn't take care of me anymore. I was already a year or two old, and since the man didn't tell nobody knows my real birthday.
Bio: My Breed: Believe it or not, I really am a Scottish Fold, even thought my ears aren't folded. I'm one of a percentage of Scottish Folds whose ears don't fold. They're called "straight" or "perky-eared" Scottish Folds. My ears are a bit smaller then average, but that's it. Since my ears don't fold am I just a Scottish?
A note on my coloring: I know that my coloration says I am a Silver Tabby, but I am really more Silver Tabby and White than anything. That's not one of the options for coloring, though, so I just went with Silver Tabby.
My Credentials: I won an honorable mention in the 4th of July Pet Poetry Picture stroll!
Humom's Note: When we first got Zak he was really skittish- waay worse than Lily. He would dart frantically around the house to find the one place that was as far away from you as possible. But, after a while, that changed dramatically. Zak has mellowed out into the most loving and easygoing cat I've ever seen. He never met a person he didn't like or a lap he didn't want to sit in. He loves attention, and has the loudest purr ever. He also just loves to use it... I swear, all you have to do is look at Zak and he'll purr. We've actually got several offers from visitors who love Zak so much they want to buy him from us (!), but we aren't giving him up.
Note on my Sun Sign: Nobody knows my real birthday, but the date I picked randomly for my Catster page makes me a Cancer- and it fits me, too.
