Quick Bio:

Orange Tabby

Sleeping and Having his tummy rubbed. Napping on Daddy's chest(see photos) He's pretty crazy about the pom-pom we just brought back from a football game. I'm never seen him act so beserk with a toy!

He's terrified of the vacuum and doesn't like his paws to be touched. Apricot isn't crazy about small children either. He's been known to hide under the bed all day when they visit, while his sister Krissy entertains them.

Favorite Toy:
He loves his daddy's shoe strings! Catnip is a close second, although he'd rather eat it than play in it. Apricot like to play a game with his daddy called "Super Kitty." Dad holds him up in the air and "flies" him around gently. Apricot loves the view!

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the back of the couch in the windows sunlight

Favorite Food:
Purina Cat Chow

No matter how much you barricade a door, he will find a way to scratch at it

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
My parents and I found him in our church parking lot. It was pouring down rain, so my mom and I begged dad to let us take him home "just until it quits raining." It's been "raining" for a long time! Apricot has spent the last year with my husband and me, and has officially been adopted by his new daddy.

The accident that took two of Apricot's nine lives occured when I was living in an apartment in Pensacola. Somehow he managed to fall head first into the crack between the water heater and the wall corner. I don't know how long he was trapped with all his body weight on his head, but he could barely meow for help. Since the water heater was so tall, and my arms are so short, the only way to pull him out was by his tail (which I could BARELY reach). Once rescued from his prison he coughed and wheezed for a couple minutes but otherwise seemed fine. I'm convinced the accident took at least two of his lives, and definitely took a couple years off of Mommy's life!
