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.

Timmy's Likes

  • Sneaking up on his brothers
  • Sleeping on his back

  • Playing with real fur toys and Madcap Mouse

Timmy's Dislikes

  • Car rides
  • Being brushed
  • Being picked up
  • Thunder storms

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.

William's Likes

  • Playing under clean sheets
  • Playing with bunched up paper
  • Eating canned food
  • Snuggling with his people at 4AM

William's Dislikes

  • Snuggling at any other time of day
  • Having his nails clipped
  • The smell of toothpaste
  • Strangers
