Likes: His favorite chair to lay in to swat at the 'girls' when they run by.
Pet-Peeves: He wants to be petted, just so, and if you don't, he walks away - then comes back to try again.
Favorite Toy: He loves his fuzzy green blanket.
Favorite Nap Spot: The brown chair by the heater and the rug by the liquor cabinet.
Favorite Food: Just a tidbit of burger - when I am cooking he walks to my feet and just stares at me. He does not like any other HUMAN food.
Skills: His only 'skill' is being large and in charge - he is about 18 lbs.
Arrival Story: On a Saturday we were at a hobby shop in Eaglerock, Cali, and I heard this annoying sqeeking. I told the shop-keeper to oil the door hinges and he told me to look in the shoebox on the table.
Inside was a tiny ball of fluff less than 6 inches from nose to butt! Black as can be, like a cotton ball dipped in dye. Eyes were not open and sex was indeterminate. His son had found the baby in the middle of Eaglerock Blvd. at 2 in the morning and thought it was a beanie or glove before he picked it up!
We went home and I pined about getting another kitten, because we had 2 Abyssinian sisters at home that were about 7 years old. But in the end I gave in and took the bus back on Saturday and sure enough it was still there, squeeking away!
I told the shop-keeper I was there to take the kitten, he wished me well, I tucked the fluff-ball in my pocket and took the bus home.
When I got home we had to lay in a supply of baby items as he had to be fed, pooped, bathed and taught everthing. Our 'old maids' howled at the indignity of a newbie, but they warmed up to him as time wore on.
Since he had to be hand raised and we were up at all hours he earned himself the name of PITA.
And though he has been labled a Burmese, he is a Chocolate, he is black but in sunlight he is ACTUALLY three different shades of brown, Chocolate syrup, Motor Oil and Melted Hershey kisses.
Bio: PITA has a large furry family:
Minxy and Teddi - his original house mates have since passed on. Teddi in March of 07.
In the two months after Teddi's passing we adopted:
Shadow - black short hair.
Then came Cami (Camouflage) - so named for her camouflage paint stripes.
Lastly we have Ashley-Cooper - Named for her ashy color when we got her - she was fithy and flea infested - but she clean up just fine.
