Likes: drooling, putting his butt in your face (esp. while you're eating), sitting on people, licking up the water in the shower after it's been used, hiding in boxes (no matter how small), running around the house like a madman
Pet-Peeves: definitely his younger brother clyde, not being allowed to eat the house plants or food that isn't his, getting his nails trimmed (he wins every time by acting as if he'll kill you)
Favorite Toy: cat nip sack, peacock feathers and cardboard boxes
Favorite Nap Spot: on top of someone or in a cumfy chair
Favorite Food: he's on a special diet but loves to eat the other cat's K/D when I'm not looking
Skills: He can fit into the smallest basket if given the chance
Arrival Story: Nixon was abandoned at an animal hospital I worked at in VA after having an abscess on his front leg fixed. He stayed at our hospital for 3 weeks before my boss caught on to what was going on. He was going to be euthanized but I stepped in and took him home with me. His original name was Silver but I changed it to Nixon (no relation to the former president).
Bio: Nixon is the world's biggest lover, except when his nails are being clipped...then he tries to kill you and may one day succeed.
So that blasted mask came out again last night. Mom snuck up me while I was trying to sleep and put the muzzle on my face! She kept cooing to me that I was a good boy while she trimmed my nails. I tried to put up a fight but she had a good hold on me. I'm gonna rip that muzzle to shreds so she can't use it again. How dare she demean my character with that thing. I'm a CAT, not a DOG...Dogs get muzzles, not Cats!! I'm not gonna hurt her, I just want to bite the nail trimmers...yeah, that's it Mom, I'm not gonna get YOU, just the clippers! MOL! Think I fooled her? I'll keep you all informed.
Last night I got to sleep RIGHT NEXT TO MOMMY!! I snagged Adrock's spot next to her b/c I'm leaner and faster than he is. I snuggled right up against her and ppppuuuuuuurrrrrreeeedddd all night long. I didn't move at all. I think she liked it a lot, I make her feel safe at night. My brothers and I haven't seen a lot of her now that classes have started up again. So, I have to snatch up any extra time with her that I can. Wish me luck tonight!
Today my mom was very excited when she picked up the mail. She kept talking to me and telling me that her life just got a little better...I knew it couldn't be good for me. After a few minutes she scooped me up and attempted to put, wait for it...a MUZZLE on my FACE !! She has figured out a way to stop me from killing her while clipping my nails! Can you believe it? I think these things should be illegal. I've known about them for years b/c the mean vet people have to cover up my face when I visit them, but I NEVER thought my OWN mother would purchase one and use it. My mean growls didn't seem to scare her off at all and she succeed in trimming my nails. I worked hard to grow those babies! I'm gonna have to figure out a way around this thing. Mom seemed very proud of herself after the deed was done. She did give me 5 cat treats though (Clyde only got 2 treats...wait, why did he get treats??!) which I enjoyed. Maybe I'll put up a bigger fight next time so she'll give me more treats...I'll keep you guys updated.
