Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

June 25th 2002


Getting to play when the other cats aren't around, pulling balloons around the house by their ribbons, chasing bugs (which thankfully does NOT happen very often!), watching squirrels, looking out the windows, getting smootched when he's sleeping.

Sunny and Tivoli, change of any kind, being brushed or picked up.

Favorite Toy:
Binder clips, pipe cleaners.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the window seat upstairs at night, on the bed during the day.

Favorite Food:
Fromm Tuna & Chicken, Purina Pro Plan Chicken & Rice, Fancy Feast (but he only gets the Fromm).

Very good at catching dry food thrown for him.


Arrival Story:
Mom L was looking out the window and thought she saw a small black squirrel hopping across the street. Wow, she thought, we finally have black squirrels in the neighborhood. She watched it for a few moments before realizing it was a KITTEN in the street. She ran out the door and into the street to stop cars that were coming. Once the kitten was across the street, she followed him. He was trying to get to a big orange cat he'd seen wandering around. But he didn't want anything to do with people and hid under a car, just out of reach. Mom L finally had to go home and get a can of food. That brought the orange cat over, and the black kitten followed. He didn't seem to see her, only the orange cat, so Mom L was able to grab him and carry him home, several houses away. On the way back she saw a guy sitting on the porch. He said, "Ya got him, huh?" She replied yes, she was able to get him, and did he know who the kitten might belong to? He replied, "No, but I'd seen him trying to cross the street and was waiting for him to get hit" and indicated a broom and dustpan next to him. Creeped out, Mom L carried the small fella home. He was only 8 weeks old and very afraid of people.

Petey still does not like to be held, but will come stand on you when you are sleeping (if you're lucky he'll lay down for a bit). He loves to have his head rubbed and puts his head down so you can give him kisses. He likes to patrol the house and play with Bosco and, occasionally, Dewberry. For reasons unknown, Pete does not like Sunny and Tivoli, and will chase them every time he sees them. He puts his toys in the food bowls and is the top cat in the house. Petey is cautious of people he doesn't know and hides when strangers come over, which is a shame since everyone wants to see Big Pete!

My mommies always say I'm handsome, but I never really felt like it. Until today that is! Mommy brushed me and usually I don't like it and try to get away, but today it felt good! I don't know why I didn't enjoy this before. I was stretched out on the desk and almost fell asleep with my head hanging over the edge. Mommy got a whole bunch of loose fur off me and now I'm all sleek and shiny. I'm SHINY! I really AM the most handsomest cat in the house!
