Happy Birthday Ted!

We got Ted last March as my early birthday present. The Craigslist ad said the kittens were about 8 weeks old. So even though I don't know his actual birthday, I can speculate it was either late last week or early this week.


In honor of his 1st birthday I thought I'd let folks around the blog get to know him a little better.


Description: 1 year old, orange, male tabby cat with tiny white patches on his chest and belly. Extremely vocal and active. Has no trouble telling you what he wants.

Habits: meowing obsessively till he is fed, laying completely "flat" on the ottoman, attacking the dog, a hand, or anything else that moves, licking what's left of his nut sack junk, sleeping between my legs in bed or in James' lap at his desk, getting up on the kitchen counter even though he isn't allowed and "escaping" outside any chance he gets.

Loves: his best bud Gunner, getting his cheeks petted, dog treats, boxes, heating vents, the laser pointer, making noises all night, and food - the dog, human and cat variety.

Hates: being dressed in costumes, being held in one place too long and dogs other than Gunner.

Fun Ted Facts: he only likes to be held by James, and he is obsessed with sinks and running water.

So happy birthday to my little ginger pain in the butt!
