Meet Our Cats: Timmy

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. I thought we'd bring all of the cats to the humane society, but between my parents and ourselves, we kept all of them. Arthur and I kept the two ginger kittens, William and his brother Timmy.

We named Timmy after Tiny Tim, because he was the smallest kitten and seemed to be weaker and more meek and fearful than the others. He's always been more affectionate than his brother William, always ready to snuggle or receive pets and scritches. He gives the most enthusiastic head-butts! Just don't pick him up -- somehow that's the worst. All the pets and snuggles and scritches are the best though!

Timmy loves to sit on the couch with us when we are having lunch or dinner, or watching TV. He's very well-behaved and never tries to grab what's on our plates or bother us when we're eating. He watches TV with us and is the most interested when Arthur plays a program made for cats like this one with birds visiting a feeder.
