Kitty Star of the Week for July 13 - 19, 2003.
From our submitter:
"T.J. is a male American Shorthair who is 7 years old.
He is an extremely loving cat and was left to us in March when my
grandfather suddenly passed away. He and his canine sister Greta are
loved very much and are treated just as we treat our cats Putt and
"T.J. is a little on the heavy side, he is about 26 pounds.
He is on a diet but doesn't like it too much. In case you are
wondering, T.J. stands for Tiger Junior. Everyone that
comes to our house says he is like a teddy bear because he is so soft
and loving. The only food that he eats is cat food, cat treats,
and he also likes to eat dog food. We have a huge container for dog
food and one day we
caught him nibbling at dry pieces of dog food. He sleeps in his own
room at night because he wanders around and causes mischief.
Mom was finding crumbs
in the floor; well, T.J. was smart enough that he opened the door on
the container, ate, then closed it. So, now we have a bolt put
through the lock
that is on the container (now we know why they made the lock).
"T.J. loves to go outside on his harness and walk around on the dog's
lead. He also has to be held every morning by my Mom, he always
sits with her first thing in the morning (after eating of course)."
