Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

Orange Tabby

I love to sleep with Momma, eat catnip, follow Mom all around the house, play with Twinkie, and look out the window.

I detest being held against my will, which is any time I haven't decided to sit on you! At times, I quickly nip when petted. I growl when someone approaches the house, and run like the dickens to under a bed until they are gone.

Favorite Toy:
I like to wrestle with small stuffed animals and even my dog brother's (Pixie) larger ones. I like to play.

Favorite Nap Spot:
I love to nap on the back of the couch, right next to Momma, or in her warm spot if she dares get up!

Favorite Food:
Canned cat food, treats.

I can open all the bathroom/kitchen cabinet doors & like to look around in them. I am also a pretty good watch cat (see pet peeves) and warn others when a stranger is near. In addition, I like to groom my brothers, Twinkie, Cocoa, and doggie bro Pixie.


Arrival Story:
It was the worst of times at the city pound. Who knows when they were going to "take me on a trip" like they did with the others across the room. After all, I was an adolescent, not one of those cute youngsters all the visitors liked to hold. Just when I began to get really worried because my roommates from across the way never did come back from their "trip", lo and behold, someone picked ME to hold! She was just like any other visitor. She looked at all the cages, making comments about who was cutest, etc. I stepped right up to say "Helleow!" and gave the best, loudest purr I could muster. That lady opened my cage and proceeded to love me up. I couldn't believe it! She put me back and continued to visit others. I saw her looking at those darn kittens... Well, the pound volunteer told that lady she could adopt a cat for free since someone had donated a cat adoption fee. She just couldn't resist, even though she had only stopped by on a whim. Later, she would tell me that she chose ME because of my ability to charm, plus I had been a teenager whose days were numbered thanks to those lil guys being so darn cute. Momma took me home that day, washed me up to remove those pesky fleas, and gave me yummy food and a fuzzy blankie. Oh how I cherish that day! I don't ever want to go outside again. Sure, I may look out the window or stand at the door with one of my brothers, but I sure don't want to end up locked up at the pound again. I really appreciate my Momma!

I am just starting to develop some freckles on my nose, but I have a bunch lining my lips. Momma always tells me how smooth and silky my hair is, so I make sure to keep myself extra clean. I am the least vocal of all my brothers, and even my purr is quiet. I sure am happy, though. I like to leap from couch to couch and from table to counter, which has resulted in a few of the pretties around here being broken. Ooops, I didn't mean it! I love to wrestle and kick stuffed animals, roll around in cat nip, dream, play tag with my brothers, and bite the neck of Pixie the rat terrier dog brother (hey, he deserves it! LOL). I have what my Momma lovingly calls a "kitty star" on my belly around my belly button: a swirly spot of white fur. She says that makes me even more special, and she ought to know, right? I like to groom myself and my brothers, too.
