   Leave a treat for Rigsby

Rigs, Big Rig, Bigsby

Quick Bio:
-pound cat-cat rescue


Catching bugs, playing with toy mice, getting belly scratches, sitting in the tub, chewing my toothbrush, playing "I can hit you in the face & you can hit me back" with the dog & sharing his breakfast with King Karma or his bed with Princess Onyx

When the bathroom door is closed, when he jumps in the bathtub & it's not empty

Favorite Toy:
Insects or little furry mice, the dog

Favorite Nap Spot:
Perched somewhere percariously, in a basket in the window with his friend's girlfriend, in the tub, on top of the toilet

Favorite Food:
Anything, especially if Karma is already eating it

He's a 5 star hunter, his hair slicks back into a cool 'do with a little water & a bit of toothbrush action


Arrival Story:
He was at the animal shelter where I work for about 2-3 months. He came in because his previous owner had to go to a nursing home. He had previously been at the shelter for 6 months before this lady adopted him. He is the coolest dude, he just has a chronic eye gunk problem so his eyes need to be cleaned fairly often. I couldn't stand to see him in the shelter any longer & knew that he would get along with my at-home beasties so here he is.

When he first came home, my bitch cat Onyx kept hissing & hitting him but he tooki t all in stride... He had never seen a dog before in his life (apparently) & my huge, slobbering & curious beast nearly gave him a heart attack. After the first sniff & hiss, Rigs ran up to the dog and swatted him as hard as he could in the face .. then ran to the nearest bookcase & hid his head in between the books (ostrich, he is not.) Now everybody in the house gets along. He shares his food with the man of the house (Karma), sleeps with Onyx, plays with the dog (Comrade) and my other 2, slightly neurotic, cats aren't bothered by him at all. Yay for good kitty times. Must take more photos. These ones are horrible. (It's so hard to show a black cat's face :P)
