Likes: Eating, wrestling with the dog, eating, peeing on the carpet and EATING!
Pet-Peeves: Doesn't like his tummy touched or his feet tickled. Doesn't like when Stupid Dog gets hyper and runs around the house.
Favorite Toy: The dog.
Favorite Nap Spot: Caitlin's bed.
Favorite Food: Deej loves ALL food. He even eats the dog's food!
Skills: He can growl like a dog. He is very dextrous for such a fat cat.
Arrival Story: I went to Byrne Dairy to buy milk and eggs and this lady walks in and says: "Anybody want a cat?!?" I followed her to her house to investigate. It turned out to be a cute, scrawny kitten that had been found abandoned by Knickerbocker school. MY, how he's grown!
Bio: In spite of his grouchy demeanor and periodic health problems, we LOVE Deej! He is so unique and funny. He loves us right back. (Except for Chester, AKA "Stupid Dog") Deej is like the baby I never had. May he live to a ripe old age.
It greatly pains me to inform all of Deej's friends, both feline and human, that he passed away after a sudden illness at the age of six on 9/4/09. We are deeply mourning the loss of our "son." I thank Catster for providing a warm and loving community in which Deej could express himself. He loved seeing himself in photos on the computer and he was very proud when Catster, on several occasions, chose his diary as Diary of the Day. He brought us so much laughter and happy memories. Over the years, Deej inbedded himself in our hearts, as we watched him grow from a scrawny kitten, into a formidable beast. Deej may have been tough and cantankerous on the surface, but deep down, he had a heart of gold. HE took care of US, not the other way around. We don't know what we will do without him.
