Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

September 15th 1996

Orange Tabby

Runing around the house like a crazy monkey, stealing chicken or lettuce or tater tots off your plate, curling up in a box or on top of the cable box, getting into a paper shopping bag, trying to sneak into rooms he's not supposed to, playing with water

The vacuum, not getting chicken, not getting to escape outside, being held like a baby

Favorite Toy:
The stairs, his sisal post, trying to eat the Christmas tree, Badger, and the laser pointer

Favorite Nap Spot:
The cable box, the sunroom chair, the desk cubby

Favorite Food:
Chicken! $10 a box cat treats from the vet

Waking up mom and dad by running up and down the stairs at 1 a.m. meow-ing loudly, hiding so no one can find him and making everyone panic, wrestling with Badger (his doggie brother)


Arrival Story:
Talus, named after the Greek mythology story of the last member of the Bronze race, was about 6 months old when I met him. I was coming home from work and he was sitting near the bottom of the steps to my apartment. I sat down and to pet him and he sat on my lap for a long time. I walked up the stairs to my door and he followed me. I basically opened the door and asked him if he wanted to come in... he did and he's been here ever since. My oldest dog loves cats so the two hit it off right away.

Talus thinks that just because he used to live outside that he wants to go outside sometimes. He's tried to get out to "explore" a few times, but I think he later regrets it, especially when he gets immediately put into the shower to get cleaned up. He LOVES water and sinks!
