Gray and White

She likes to explore and plays with her prey (toy mice); she recently discovered the ball with the bell inside. Tippy and Moe compete with the fishing rod mice and toys.

She hates it when Moe gets a lot of attention and tries to become the center of attention. She does not like scissors, food stealers, and heights.

Favorite Toy:
She loves her 'prey' (replica mice toys). The two cats have them hidden all over the house!

Favorite Nap Spot:
Whereas Moe was trained NOT to sleep on the owner's pillows, she insists upon sleeping on or with them. When not available, a good lap or the owner's chest will do.

Favorite Food:
Anything that is edible because she had to previously fight for food on the street. She prefers wet food over dry.

She purrs like no other cat I've seen or felt; she is very loving!


Arrival Story:
As with Ash Ketchum from Pokemon, she picked me. I just got home from a hockey game, and she was near my car. I called out with 'here kitty, kitty', and she hasn't left my side since. She literally stayed in my backyard (summertime, of course!) for two weeks, and during that time I finally gave in and provided food and water. Since Moe and Tippy got along, I brought her in. My friend Margie gave her a bath, and I had her declawed and spayed (like Moe who is declawed and neutered). She's now a welcome, important part of the family. As it has been said with British Shorthairs, she has not found a lap she didn't like. She likes company, and Tippy likes to play fight with Moe. She also has a knack of taking Moe's favorite sleeping spots and eating first because she was used to being a stray. They're getting a long well now, and she loves her 'Daddy' and Moe, her new brother.

Tippy was skin and bones when I found her. I initially provided food and water and some shelter from dangerous storms. As time progressed during the two weeks, I realized she wouldn't leave even with my encouragement. She is white with gray spots and a gray tail. She has a grey spot behind every paw, a spot on her underlip, and and small spot on her belly. She frequently likes to be on her back. She dislikes being held up in the air and dislikes scissors. Tippy frightens easily, but she's no scaredy cat. Tippy is a kitten/young cat who is exploring the world for the first time, and based on her recent behavior, she no longer growls and is happy.

Lives Remaining:
9 of 9

Forums Motto:
I never met a lap I didn't like.

I am sad to share that my mentor and friend, Mighty Moe the Maine Coon mix cat, has died today.

I'm the oldest now and have the responsibility of running the household and taking up the lap sitting duties.

We all hope that we will be reunited on the Rainbow Bridge again someday.


I grew more whiskers!

My daddy pointed out to me tonight that I have two new whiskers directly out of each side of my head. Wow!


Thank you for the gifts

Thank you all for the wonderful gifts. My daddy is taking very good care of me. He is teaching me to sleep through the night without waking him up with incessant kissing and pawing. He's very patient. I have taken over his laptop bag and his hockey bag to sleep in/on. I used to hide in the new hutch cabinet until he started putting his movies in there. Darn! :)
