Arrival Story:
All I was doing, honestly, was going to the Minnesota State Fair for a day of enjoyment. Really. But there was an enormous cat adoption complex set up by the entrance and I just had to look. We already had two cats and two dogs. I didn't WANT another cat!! But there in the first cage sat an orange tabby Space Cat. I knew he was a purebred Rex of some sort but didn't know what kind, and I was stunned that he would be in a shelter. Turns out he'd been left in an apartment that weekend. Since he's Ruler of the Known Universe, he easily used his powers of mind control and I adopted him. When we brought him home that night he surveyed the scene: two people, two dogs, two cats--and immediately installed himself at the top of the household hierarchy, even above the Pit Bull, who's still somewhat afraid of him.

When he came to us his name was Leo, which we changed to Julius. My partner started calling him T-Bone, and then one day the cat just named himself. He looked up and said, "PEEP," and that was that. He makes a vast range of sounds, but mostly he peeps. So he's The Peeper. He regularly steals food from the dogs, taking it away from them even as they eat. He's careful, but fearless. THIS JUST IN...8/11/04...Minneapolis MN...In a daring move, The Peeper seized and ran away with an entire slice of Papa John's pizza while the pizza's righful eater was distracted for a mere second! The Peeper was quickly apprehended and the pizza disposed of. The Peeper is plotting his revenge, so be on the lookout for further audacious acts!!....UPDATE...1/24/05...The Peeper has repeated his daring pizza raid, stealing an entire slice and carrying it down a flight of stairs!! He was cornered behind the couch and surrendered the pizza without violence....UPDATE...August 2005...The Peeper has broadened his food obsession to include barbecued ribs, one of which he stole from a plate and ran up two flights of stairs with. The rib was about six inches long, and was surrendered after The Peeper was finally located and cornered. UPDATE: 5-20-2009 -- We bring you the sad news that The Peeper, Ruler of the Known Universe, left us this evening. He will be missed.
