   Leave a treat for Winky

Stinky, Blinky, Binky, Stinklikehell, Stinkerbell, Stink-Stink, Bubba and Bubbas

Quick Bio:
-pound cat

Playing with his ball-on-a-rope, playing fetch, climbing up the screen door, getting fed and following people into the bathroom (!)

Being rubbed too hard on his tummy, when his owners sleep in too late and don't feed him and the vacuum

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the window sill and on the footstool that's pushed against the screen door over looking the pool

Favorite Food:
While he enjoys his Indoor Cat Diet food, he LOVES: yogurt, scraps of meat, beef jerky, Starbursts and whatever falls on the floor that I can't pick up fast enough

When he is in a particularly good mood, he will wink one eye at you (hence the name.) Also recently discovered, he can fetch and bring back wads of paper. He can also jump EXTREMELY high. Melts hearts with a single look - that's a skill, ya know.


Arrival Story:
He chose me. Seriously. I really wanted a kitten, so I went to a pound. There, all the kittens were separated by color and put into little "booths." I went to each one, feeling my way through. I wanted to be sure I got the cat meant for me. I went into the "gray cat" booth and saw the cutest ball of fluff. SHE was tiny but SHE didn't like me. However, Winky (then named Snickers) kept following me around. I couldn't decided and told the lady I'd come back the next day. I did and went back to look at the girl fluff ball I liked. I didn't care that much for Winky, but the lady informed me that he didn't like anyone and that when I came, it was the first time he took interest. I went back into the "gray cat" booth and all the kittens were sleeping. The girl I wanted looked at me and put her head back down. Winky, on the other hand, jumped down and started playing with me. When I left the booth to tell the lady I'll take him, he perched up and watched me. I knew he was meant to be mine. Now, as soon as I come home, he's by my side. He'll watch me pee, watch me shower, sleep with me, nuzzle me, follow me and make sure I'm okae at all times. I can truely tell he loves me... everyone says, "WOW! You chose a great cat!" and I shake my head and say, "Naw.. he chose me."
