Brown-Patched Tabby

Tormenting his big sister, Lulu, by chasing her, and grabbing her neck.

Having to come inside for the night, he sits mournfully at the window for half an hour before going to bed.

Favorite Toy:
Birds and grasshoppers

Favorite Nap Spot:
On Lulu's bed, particularly whichever one she's just left.

Favorite Food:
He's recently started putting big mouthfuls of tuna into his plate of dry food, I suppose it's so he can eat everything at once!

He likes to watch me cleaning my teeth, then tries to lick listerine off my mouth.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
I found an add offering free kittens in our local paper, and, as it's 6 months since my husband's old cat went to God, I suggested it was time he had a new best friend. We drove to town, and Gilligan was the last kitten left; we fell in love at first sight, and it now feels like we've had him forever, not just 3 days. He's actually my birthday present to Chris, my husband.

Gilligan fits like a hand in a glove, and has never cried, or looked for his litter mates. He just rushed inside and took over.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Excuse me from crying; I havent been able to come to this site since Gilligan died. He was hit by a DRUNK driver, right outside my front gate. Poor Gilly; his love of the field across the road cost him his life, and I will wish till the end of my days, that he'de not been let out that morning. I always thought he was here for a good time, not a long time. God bless you my little man, forever in my heart.

Mum found 2 wounds on my tummy which had pulled my fur tight, and she knows I cant help biting when something hurts, so she asked Dad to hold me while she treated me. Dad had a towel around my top half, luckily cos I kept biting big mouthfuls of towel, but didnt manage to get Dad. Mum scraped off the scabs and cleaned up the wounds and put antibiotic ointment on my tummy. I feel better already.
On a happier note, I've been hunting well this week; I had a big fat mouse, which squeaked and alerted Mum, so she rescued it. She went back to bed, and when she woke up and put her feet over the bed, I was sitting there with a RE ALLY big lizard for her. I am so generous, but she keeps letting these gifts go, and I have to go out and catch more.

We moved house, and Mum has kept me totally inside for 6 whole weeks. I have been very bored, and very naughty, but that's OK, I'm a boy! Dad built a cage; can you imagine how upset I've been, sitting in that cage, watching all the little birdies on the back lawn; I have nearly gone crazy. I have had a lot of spankings, cos I get tangled up in those horrible vertical blinds, but Lulu and I finally got let out this week and it was great! I brought Mum in a lovely little birdie within 10 minutes of getting out, and she yelled at me, and put it in the bin. Today I brought her a nice big lizard; I dont know what's wrong with that woman because she doesnt appreciate my gifts at all !!!
