To drink out of the bathroom faucets.

Not having the faucet turned on fast enough,he scolds you & it sounds like he's saying "Now!" Now!"

Favorite Toy:
Laser pointer, the dad has actually got him panting from playing too hard

Favorite Nap Spot:
Inside the boxes our groceries get packed in when we shop @ Costco

Favorite Food:
He will tear open a bag of Brewers Yeast, he's crazy for it.

He can knock a full cup of water off the table with two quick moves of his paw. It's even better if there's a straw in it!

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
He was found in 2000 as a 3 week old kitten. There were feral cats running around the place where I worked. He must have wandered away from his mommy. My husband & I had been married for less than two months when I called him wimpering asking him if I could bring this darling baby home. He said yes! I knew there was a reason I married him! Kolby was so young we had to "potty" him which meant he had to have his bottom wiped w/ a wet, warm paper towel, just like his mommy would do by licking. He had to be fed w/a baby bottle for kittens every couple hours; I had to wrap him like a burrito so his little needle sharp claws wouldn't scratch me, but he always managed to get a foot free. Ouch! After a few weeks we started feeding him a gruel mix & he was sooo messy we ended up feeding him in the bathtub. He would end up covered in gruel & because his kitty mommy wasn't there to clean him we had to wipe him down w/ a washcloth after every meal.

He has a very strange habit of fighting w/ his foot. He will be licking his back foot & then all of a sudden bite it then he will kick himself in the head, then he will bite his foot, kick his head, bite his foot. It's almost like he's saying "Don't kick me!" then "Well then don't bite me!" He will go back & forth doing this until he's finally got his leg stretched out & he's growling @ it. Like he forgot that the foot belongs to him! We call him Zoolander because he is so handsome but not very smart.

I'll be the cute one, U be the smart one

The Last Forum I Posted In:
How do I change to "in loving memory"?

Almost exactly one year after Kolby came to live w/ us we added two more feral kittens to our family. Both females, we named them Leila & Jordan. When they first were w/ us, Kolby didn't know what to think of them, I don't think he knew he was a CAT & so were they. After he finally warmed up to them, he would snuggle w/ them, lick them & they taught him how to purr.

Since Kolby was such a tiny kitten when he came to live w/ us, he thought I was his mommy & for the first couple yrs of his life, he would nurse on my hand in the web between my thumb & index finger. Still to this day I clean his face w/ my thumb & get all the kitty sandmans out of his eyes.
