Arrival Story:
My parents went to church one morning and there was a group of kids on the bridge over the stream. When Mom and Dad got there, they found out a kitten was living in a hole on the bank of the stream. Dad went home and got a Have-A-Heart trap and caught the kitten and took him home. They were going to take him to the local no-kill shelter, because they already had two cats, but Dad said that if he did that he'd have to take Mom too, because she'd fallen in love. She named him "Hobbit" because he'd been living in a hole in the ground. He also has big hairy feet! Funny though that he's the biggest cat in the house...

We knew from the beginning he would be big because he always had huge feet. Now he's big AND fat. He's also extremely shy. The only people he trusts are my parents and me (my brother irritates him). You have to stay at our house for at least a week before he finally starts coming out, or visit a lot like my boyfriend has. When he's with Mom, Dad, and me he's the SWEETEST bag of cat pudding. He doesn't like to be held, but he doesn't mind being kissed, and he enjoys being paddled (silly cat). He also likes to lick our foreheads.

I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes. Fortunately, I do not feel the needle when my human parents inject me with insulin in the skin of my neck, but...! I have gotten even fatter than I used to be; now I am ENORMOUS and I am on a diet. Noooooooooo!!!!!!
