Likes: arranging his toys and then going to hide so he can pounce on them, chin scratches, nose kisses, looking out the window
Pet-Peeves: When I have been out for too long he gets upset and mrows. He hates it when I open my closet because he knows I'm getting clothes and going out. Getting his nails clipped
Favorite Toy: Blue mouse 1/2/3, Pink mouse, catnip mouse and his 3 snugga wubbas
Favorite Nap Spot: snoozing in his tower in a sunbeam, with me on my super cozy new blanket and his "treehouse"
Favorite Food: Ham, salmon, apple juice
Skills: making me smile and laugh, very good at setting up his toys so he can pretend he just came upon them all sitting there in a row waiting to be jumped on
Arrival Story: I used to work in a daycare and we have people who rent out the downstairs, a little black cat was meowing in the rain one night and they brought him in to let him warm up, and then sent him on his way assuming he had a home. In the morning the temperature dropped quite alot and when I got to work the little cat was still outside. I couldn't let him freeze so I opened the door, he took a look at the 4 adults standing there and beelined straight for me purring. It was love at 1st sight for both of us. He was tiny and hungry but very affectionate and loving, and the kids named him Spaz.
About a month and a half after he adopted us I quit my job at the daycare and took Spaz home with me. The kids miss him but understand that he has a nice warm forever home now, so they like that. Spaz hangs out in my room most of the day, with his 10, 000 toys and his cat condo by the window, when my dogs are in bed for the night he gets to have the run of the house while I watch tv for a couple hours. When it's bed time he snuggles in beside me and falls asleep.
Bio: Spaz is a crazy boy, very spoiled. I figure that he had a rough 1st year of his life so now it's his turn to be treated like a king! He is also a bionic cat, having broken his leg he now has a steel plate and 7 screws in there! No airport security for him. He is always making me laugh, sometimes he will sneak up behind me and meow really loud and then run away, he also likes to run up, jump, hug my leg and run off, and right now at this very moment he is playing with the wrinkles in a pillow! He really likes his pink and blue mice, he hides them in my pajama pants leg when I'm not wearing them.
Spaz was in quite the mood yesterday. Looking into the air and jumping aorund like something was there, running from room to room and rolling around, throwing his toys in the air. He cracks me up. He was meowing alot too, not a distressed moew, more like he was trying to have a little conversation with me. Quite cute. He was snuggly at bed time too, right up against my leg with his head on my hip purring away, he was purring so hard my whole body was vibrating, at the vets they call him a purrbox because he rarely stops purring. This is the cat who purred through all his shots!!! crazy boy.
It's so weird to have a cat, I've grown up with dogs my whole life, gor my 1st when I was 4 and I am almost 24 now. I love any animal, cats included but never thought of owning one until Spaz chose me. Like I tell people, I didn't adopt him, he adopted me. When I saw how closely he followed me ar0und and how happy he was to see me in the mornings, back when he lived at the daycare I realized there was no way I could give him up. What a love story eh?
He is so chatty now too, when he 1st came into the daycare he was quiet, aside from his purring. Now he is always meowing or "chirping" about something. When I come into the room he meows. When I leave the room he meows, he meows when he is hungry and when he wants to play and sometimes just randomly he will lift his head and chirps at me and then goes back to sleep, like "ok mom just checking to see if your still there" I don't know how to explain his chirping, it really does sound almost birdlike. kinda really quick mew mew mew mew. lol. It's pretty cute!!!
Anyway I am off to see what he is doing, I can hear him crasing around in my room playing.
