Me, talking to me, playing in the bathroom sink, doing his tricks, playing with Kimba the White Lion

Most DEFINITELY clipping his nails - you'd think I was cutting off his feet! Also gets pretty grumpy when he doesn't get his way about something. Sasses me when I use my foot to block his entrance to the kitchen or push him along to leave the ktichen.

Favorite Toy:
Kimba the White Lion, invisible toys, laser light

Favorite Nap Spot:
Behind my knees when I'm laying on the couch, top of the couch

Favorite Food:
Friskies Ocean Fish

He does tricks: "Turny Head" - turns his head upside down, Head Butt Hug, Face Hug - all on command, he also comes when called


Arrival Story:
If you've read Trixie's and Junior's stories (BAD KITTIES!), you know he is their son. I became Baby Surprise's surrogate mommy almost immediately. I heard Trixie groan at 5am, and got out of was too late to abort the litter (that I just realized she was carrying 4 days ago), she was having kittens! OH NO! Around 5:30am, the as yet unnamed Baby Surprise was born! Trixie did the mom thing and cleaned him all off while I was touching and imprinting him. Then when she was all done she laid down on top of him with a very contented look of "I'm done now Mom!" look on her face. I freaked and pushed her off of him and encouraged him to nurse. I couldn't blame her for not wanting him, she was only 8 months old. I figured if I could get him nursing she'd be okay. By the time I left for work (late!), she seemed okay. When I got home, she was like, "I'M FREE! You take care of him!" So he spent a lot of time riding around in my shirt pocket to stay warm, and me locking him in a crate with her every couple of hours so she'd feed him. I decided to sleep on the floor in the second bedroom (where I put them so the other cats wouldn't hurt him) so I could keep my hand in the bed at night to keep her from crushing him. I did that for two weeks. What a big kitten he was, I guess because he was the only one. He's a beautiful black kitty, and if you look closely, he has stripes in the black, just like his Aunt Charm. And right on the tippiest tip of his very very loooong tail are about 6 white hairs. He's a sexy little boy and he knows it! He talks to me, sasses me, follows me around, plays in the sink whenever I'm in the bathroom, begs for people food and won't eat it, and just adores me.

It's weird having a kitty whose mom is also his half-sister and his dad is also his half brother...and he has an aunt and two half-aunts! He doesn't seem messed up from the in-breeding, although he's pretty cow-hocked. He's definitely dramatic and has Trixie's temper, but he also has Junior's friendly genes!
