Arrival Story: At first he was a stray. A lady his first mommy worked with kept talking about him hanging around her house. It was winter time & very cold in Missouri. She went & picked him up, planning on finding a warm home for him, but ended up keeping him. She moved out-of-state to help take care of her Dad and needed to find homes for Ringo & Prince. Ringo's first mommy (Hello Kitty on SOMC) & I are friends on SOMC & Catster and my husband & I wanted to adopt both of them. So, on Oct. 20, 2008 we met each other for the first time. Hello Kitty gave her two precious boys to me. OMG, what an emotional experience. I know how much she loves them and am both pleased and honored she trusted us with her babies. Ringo is a big ol' sweetie pie and we love him.
Bio: He came from a tiny country town (pop. 312)...New Hampton, MO. He now lives in Claremore, OK. He's very, very sweet. He barely sheds. He's the only cat we have that you can pet without hair coming out, but he loves being brushed with the Furminator (it gets hair out of him). He is named him Ringo because he has big rings on both sides. He has a toe fetish!!! Loves to lick toes, followed by a little nail nibbling. LOL. Unfortunately he likes to chew on my shoes. He is very curious and adjusted to his new home quite nicely.
Hey! What about me??? I exercise too, but it seems to work better for me than it does for Prince. Mommy says I'm purrfect....sleek & trim. Muffin is so fat she can barely jump but Mommy says it's cuz her legs are really, really short & she has fur on the bottom of her feet, so she slides around a lot.
I also run up & down the stairs, but I usually stop & "play" along the way. Prince won't let me get on top of the fridge. He says it's "his." I do get on top of the china cabinet sometimes & I also have to jump to get my water.
My favorite thing (besides tearing up paper products) is to run as FAST as I can and climb the cat tree!!!! Then I scratch & scratch & scratch. It's so fun.
Speaking of paper......I found Mommy's stash of wrapping paper today and tore up two rolls! I used to do that to Mama too. Why aren't they happy when I do this?
