   Leave a treat for Tinker

Tinker Pinker, Stealth Cat, Stripey, Bunny Rabbit, VibroTail

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Being petted, giving kisses, and especially bathing other kitties and people. Tinker thinks the best time to give someone a bath is when she's just finished giving them one.

Her sister Rainy, being forced to move when she's comfy, not being petted.

Favorite Toy:
Crinkly tissue paper.

Favorite Nap Spot:
In the sun, on the bed, curled up with her brother Tiger or her sister Jill, or on the chair next to someone who will pet her.

Favorite Food:
Tim Horton's doughnuts, but unfortunately she is on a special diet and cannot have them any more.

Teleportation. She never appears to hurry, but often you look and she's not there, glance away for a second, and when you look again she's right beside you. Official groomer for the household, she will bathe anyone who'll hold still for it.


Arrival Story:
If you took all the sweetness of all the sweet cats in the world and wrapped it up in a ball of silky fur...you would get Tinker. She's devoted and loving to those who she chooses to be "hers". Tinker and her brother Tiger were littermates from a mama barn cat, and the whole litter was brought to my mother-in-law's veterinarian to be adopted out. Mum agreed to take the two of them and they all took very good care of each other for many years. When our dear Mum passed away, Tinker and Tiger came to live with us and they have made our home a more delightful place by their presence.

Tinker took the loss of her original mommy very hard and it took her a long time to join our family. But now that she has, she's our little love bug and she has an unlimited supply of affection to give. Shortly after she came to live with us she was quite ill and had to be hospitalized twice and medicated for almost a month, but she survived with 8 lives to spare and she is healthy and happy now. Tinker isn't really an American Shorthair since she is a Canadian citizen, as is her brother Tiger.
