Arrival Story: I was temporarily living with a newly married couple that were dealing w/a problem pregnancy. I went out to get in my van to run to the store & there was a little ball of gray fur, kneading his paws on my tire attempting to nurse. As soon as I picked him up he started purring at the same time he was trying to meow. The people I was staying with had 2 cats already, but said I could keep him if I kept him in my room. Since the tires I had on my van were made by Mickey Thompson & he was trying to nurse on them I named him Mickey.
Bio: This boy was huge & had fangs that extended below his top lip; (like a Sabre Tooth Tiger). I used to think that his internal clock was set by the "Atomic Clock". As EVERY morning at 7:45 sharp he would stand on my chest & stare at me. He would never make a sound until he saw me open an eye; then he would persist to bug me until I got up & fed them (him & my roomates cats). Years later I found out that on my roomates way out the door to go to work; he'd stop by my bedroom door & shake the box of dry food & say "Mickey tell your mom it's time to eat". Regardless Mickey woke up at 7:45 am right up till the end. His favorite toy was a ratty old stuffed catnip mouse. He would drop it on the floor just outside the laundry basket. He'd then jump inside the basket & proceed to force the mouse through one of the holes in the basket. Often times he'd "lose" his mouse & empty the clothes from the basket till he "found" him.
