Cream Tabby

Eating, chasing the other kitties

None ... he's pretty easy-going

Favorite Toy:
Laser light, anything he can carry in his mouth

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of the couch or in one of the many kitty beds

Favorite Food:

Being cute


Arrival Story:
This little guy was at a rural shelter waiting to be euthanized. I foster cats, so I brought him and several of his buddies home with me. Some of them have gotten homes, some are still waiting to be adopted. But this little guy is staying with me.

He is a sweet, friendly, happy little boy. He gets along with my other cats. He likes to play with them, but if they've had enough, he can take a hint. He is just as happy to play by himself or with a toy on his own. He is affectionate, but not needy. He's a sweetie pie.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
Bugs ... they're what's for dinner.

My pal Pixie! Isn't she pretty?:

My Mom is the biggest killjoy on the planet! Yesterday I was out on the porch. It was a nice day ... kinda warm even. And guess what I saw? My favorite bug in the world! A wasp! Yep. A big ol' juicy wasp! So, of course I caught him. No bug is too big, too fast, too ugly or too stingy for me!

I decided to bring him inside the house. I was playing with him, batting him around, watching him try to get away ... and Sugar comes up. And Abner. I'm like, 'Guys, if Mom sees a crowd of us, she's gonna wonder what we're up to, find Mr. Wasp and take him away!' Did they listen to me? Noooooooooooo. So in a minute, here comes Mom the Spoilsport. At first, I was still looking around for Mr. Wasp. I smelled him, but I couldn't find him. Then Sugar says 'Mom took him.' Dang! She always takes my wasps! And those buggers are hard to catch too!

Well, at least it's just the beginning of wasp season. hehehe.

I was just reading Newman's diary and he talks about getting "flashlight feet" that help him walk at night. So I decided I wanted some of these "flashlight feet" and went Googling to see if I could find some. Here's what I found:

This is a pretty cool flashlight. It looks like a cat!

And in Korea, scientists have developed a cat that glows in the dark! The article says:
"It appears that scientists from The Ministry of Science & Technology have cloned cats that have a red flourescent protein gene in their body that glows under a red flourescent lamp, helping scientist to isolate the gene. They are pursuing efforts to duplicate the gene so that they can find disease in the body using the flourescent lamp technology."

Hmmm ... I'm not sure either of these will help me when I'm exploring around the house at 5 a.m. I think those "flashlight feet" Newman has are really what I need. Hey Newman! Help a pal out! Where did you get those "flashlight feet"?

I am a finalist in the photo contest! I'm in the Captivated category. I just want to thank every cat (and their purrsons) who voted for me! I've only been on Catster a few months, so I feel very honored to be in the company of so many pawsome Catster contenders! Plus, now I have something to hold over Ollie's head! Mwhahahaha!

Good luck to every cat!!
