Nicknames: Mini-Me, Peanut, Skippy, Precious (kind of rhymes with Tethys), Squawky
Gotcha Date: July 17th 2006
Birthday: December 15th 2005
Coloration: Tabby and White
Likes: Rolling on the kitchen floor or the carpet upstairs. Getting the top of her head kissed, and giving headbutts right back.
Pet-Peeves: None. She has a few things that make her squawk a bit but she's too even-keeled for a real pet peeve.
Favorite Toy: The black and white mouses and the all-white mouses.
Favorite Nap Spot: My bed or the carpet upstairs.
Favorite Food: She needs to have either CD or Royal Canin UR, but she won't have one, nor the other -- only a 50/50 mix.
Skills: She brings me toys from upstairs. Usually, there are several waiting for me in the morning.
Arrival Story: About a year after Junior wandered into my life, I was again sitting on the front porch with my next-door neighbors and we decided to check on the house next to them to see what strays where there. Two new kitties were on the steps. I nabbed one and even though she was still a very little thing, she had obviously just had kittens and either they were dead, or she wasn't concerned about them and they would be. I took her upstairs and in the next 24 hours realized she simply HAD to be related to Junior, certainly a half-sister. They looked amazingly similar, her actions and reactions were amazingly like his, her characteristics were like him... Since Junior was more than 10 years younger than my next youngest, and would grow old alone, I decided to keep Tethys. At first I was going to call her Minnie (as in "Mini-Me") but decided she deserved her own distinctive name, so I called her Tethys (pronounced Teth-iss), after one of the Titans (the parents of the Greek Gods -- google it and read the sad story).
Bio: Like Junior, Tethys doesn't have a single bad trait, not a single bad characteristic. She has a tiny voice while he has a big loud one; she speaks chattingly while in the same room but he shouts while in a different room (calling me to come play). She has circles on her and more black, while he has stripes. Tethys didn't turn into a fully fluffy Wegie kittie as Junior did last Christmas (at about 2 years old) but our heros Smudge and Sissel say they didn't get totally Wegie-fied until their 3rd year, and I think now she is as fluffy as she will get. If the length of her prodigous whiskers is any indication, she should be MUCH more fluffy!
