Likes: The paper recycling bag, esp. thermal paper credit card receipts; crumpled up balls of tissue paper; anything that's in the waste paper bins; the broom! Riccola cough drops; tampons (last two to play with, not to use...); and the yoga rug (see photo!)
Pet-Peeves: Anti-allergy rub-downs, the vacuum cleaner
Favorite Toy: Crumpled up balls of masking tape from the lint roller!
Favorite Nap Spot: The bay window
Favorite Food: Simon is not too picky, but he gets fed Nutro Complete Care. Grocery store food gave him flatulence, Iams gave him dandruff. Now he's great.
Skills: Simon plays fetch! (see video!)
indoors and outdoors
Arrival Story: This kitty showed up on my doorstep on a Thursday morning and pushed its way into my house. I put him out, but he kept meowing and howling. I told him I had to go to work and couldn't leave him inside and that if he was serious, he should come back Friday night after 6 pm. On Friday night after 6 pm, he showed up at the back door; I went out and bought him supplies, and he moved in.
Bio: Simon's back legs don't work 100%. He often misses his footing, even when walking in my lap. I am hoping some previous caretaker didn't give him any over the counter flea products which damaged his nervous system! (He can, however, jump at leat 3-4 feet onto counters, etc., so he is not handicapped, just a little clumsy.) Update: 4 months later, Simon has no more trouble with his back legs. A little bit of love and good nutrition seems to have done the trick. Update: 1 year later - Simon is in extremely robust health now, and has discovered a new skill: killing things. He is extremely athletic and goes on the roof, on fences, up trees, and, sigh, into bird feeders. He's strong now, and fierce!
