   Leave a treat for Sandy

Real name is Sanilac, after the shelter he was rescued from (but he doesn't know that); other names are SandMan and WugWug

Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-pound cat-cat rescue

annoying the other cats, being up high, playing in water, tipping over water bowls

not getting Mitsu's special food, cats who get tired of being pestered all the time, pedicures

Favorite Toy:
FooFoo fur

Favorite Nap Spot:
Rocking chair

Favorite Food:
whatever he can steal; it tastes better if you're not supposed to have it or if it belongs to someone else!

He does impersonations! He loves to grab a huge mouthfull of white fur from our cat FooFoo and leave it stuck in his teeth like a white beard.... with the red collar -- Voila! Sandy Claus!

Arrival Story:
I was involved in cat rescue, and I got a photo of this young black kitten who came into a rural animal control in mid-Michigan. They told me he didn't have much of a chance, being not only black (which are last to be adopted most times) but also almost totally lame. Couldn't walk much at all. I waited as long as I could, but they said he would be put to sleep, so I went and got him to foster him. He promptly got sick, and had to spend almost two months isolated in my bathroom. It was then he learned that he loved to crawl onto people and curl up to sleep when they took baths. It also kept him somewhat contained and quiet -- and his lameness healed almost completely! Once he was well, it was Halloween, and rescues don't adopt out black cats during the Halloween season... then it was Christmas, and it seemed cruel to find him a different home then.... then... well, who can get rid of a cat you've had for so long? We loved him.

We love Sandy, but he IS a challenge. He torments the other cats, especially FooFoo, and chases them all over the house. He knocks stuff down constantly. And, he'd steal the food out of your mouth if he thought he'd get away with it. But he is a sweet heart who is very devoted to us, and quite the character, so he keeps things interesting around here! And now he's an 'infinite cat" too -- go here to see what I mean! e/cat-html/249.html
