Quick Bio:

Black and White

Eating and cuddling.

Humans who don't sit still when she wants to cuddle. Also, the doorbell, and sometimes her sister Jessamine annoys her.

Favorite Toy:
A catnip-filled sock on a string, which I made for her.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On a human's lap!

Favorite Food:
Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. Unfortunately, her sister's possible fish allergy means she has to eat lame prescription diet.

Teagan can purr really loudly. She also is an excellent greter when people come to the door.


Arrival Story:
I adopted Teagan, along with her "sister" Jessamine, from the Tompkins County SPCA. When I entered the small room in which Teagan lived with 2 other cats, she came right up to me and climbed into my lap, purring the entire time. She then proceeded to fall asleep on my leg. Teagan had been at the SPCA for about a month when I adopted her. The shelter staff estimated her age to be 3-5 years old at that time, but I don't know anything about her life prior to her arrival at the SPCA. Teagan had been found as a stray, although she was clearly a domestic cat. Teagan only weighed 8 pounds when she was brought to the SPCA; she had been declawed by her previous owners and was apparently unable to feed herself when she was abandoned outdoors :( After I brought her home, Teagan hid for a couple hours, although when I'd look under the bed and make eye contact, she would start to purr. She got over her timidity pretty quickly and has settled in nicely. Teagan is a little charmer. She still purrs a lot.

I has cuddlehumans!

Last night, two humans came over for dinner. These weren't just any humans, either. These were humans I lived with for a while! They were humans who I stayed with while my human was out of town for a few weeks.

In other words, they were humans I like to cuddle! It was so exciting to see them. I got carried around the apartment, I got petted, and I got to play with my chirpy teezer toy!

I got too excited and started chasing everything and running up and down the apartment. I also ate a piece of straw that was on the ground.

Yay for visiting cuddlehumans!

Unlike my sister Jessamine, I tend to be a low maintenance, easygoing sort of cat. But, she has listed her good qualities and challenges in her diary, and so I am going to do it too.

Five Reason's I'm Sometimes Slightly Difficult.

1. I wish I were an only cat. I get used to my kitty sister Jessamine, but sometimes I realize how much I resent her presence and how jealous I am that my human pets her, and I have to attack. This is especially problematic after Jessamine has been away for a few hours. I am so relieved she's gone, but then she comes back! No fair.

2. I really, really love Tofutti cream cheese. When my human eats it, I am very aggressive about stealing it.

3. My human can't wear light colored shirts because of my full-contact cuddling style, which coats her with my glossy black fur (see #1 below.)

4. I like to drink out of my human's water glass, for some unknowable reason.

5. I am not photogenic. I tend to move as soon as I see the camera. I also have a bad habit of letting my mouth hang open slightly so I look like I'm snarling in photos. The upshot of all this is that when my human takes 50 pictures of us, she has 25 photos of Jessamine looking gorgeous and 25 photos of me looking ridiculous.

Five Reason's I'm Worth It.

1. I am the best cuddler in the world. I just need to rub my human, lean against her, and basically try to merge my body with hers at the cellular level. I also am compelled to purr loudly while I do this.

2. My nose is half white and half black, including the skin. How cute is that?

3. I am fun to play with. I really love chasing my chirpy teaser and some of my fake mice. I give it all I've got, and then some.

4. I am unflappable. If something scary happens, I might jump, but as soon as it's over, I am fine again. I've forgotten it ever happened. Nothing upsets me for long.

5. I love my human way more than any other creature in the universe and I let her know it. I follow her around the house and spend as much time with her as I can, and I try to be as close to her as is physically possible. I can be a bit distant with other humans, but that's just because I think my human is so much more fabulous than any other.

So, I am basically a low maintenance little sweetie. Yay for Teagan!


Much better

A couple nights ago, my human was lying on the couch, my sister Jessamine was lounging on the floor a couple feet away, and I was sitting about 3 feet past Jessamine.

Something didn't seem right, so I stood up, walked 2 steps toward the couch, and flopped back over to lie on my side about 2 feet from Jessamine..

Much better.
