Meet Our Cats: William

On September 2, 2014, I was birding at Gemini Springs when I found a mother cat and two kittens. According to a park staffer I spoke with, the cats had been abandoned at the park. After securing the two kittens in a box and the mother in a crate, a third kitten marched out of the woods towards me. That third kitten was William.

I thought we'd bring all of the cats to the humane society, but between my parents and ourselves, we kept all of them. My parents have the mother, Samantha, and her daughter, Pokey. We kept the two ginger kittens, William, and his brother Timmy.

William has always been extremely playful. As a kitten, he'd jump under sheets and play fight with his siblings. He'd jump on us and other cats and then run playfully away. If we walk by him on the couch, he likes to bat as us with his paw for no particular reason. His favorite game is to play fetch with a balled up piece of paper.

Only in the last year or so has William started to show affection and enjoy more quiet activities, like sitting on the couch and being petted. We used to think that he seemed anxious or on edge a lot of the time, but he's finally started to mellow out a bit. He used to have a bad habit of chewing wires. Thankfully he has mostly outgrown that. Recently he has also figured out that he likes to be brushed, and that getting his nails clipped isn't the end of the world.
