Teddy (Mixed Breed Cat)

Your Pet's Age
9 almost 10


Your Pet's Breed
Mixed, black and white long haired, green eyed male cat.

How and when did you get your pet?
We went to a friend's house where they were taming a female kitten for us and while leaving my husband felt something on his leg, it was Teddy he had wrapped his paws around my husband's ankle. He wanted to go with his sister Sarah and us, so up into my arms he went and all four of us headed home!

What does your pet like to do for fun?
As you see in the picture, he loves sitting on the walker taking swipes at our big dog Slick, and of course he loves to ride around! In his earlier days he spent a lot of nights at the glass front door jumping as high as he could catching moths on the other side of the glass by the porch light. He loves eating breakfast with me, no-fat yogurt, his favorite is black cherry and he especially enjoys licking the lids. I get the outer circle and he gets the center. He'll eat about 8-9 fingerfuls before heading out for a well deserved nap. For fun he tries to open all the lower cupboards, which I've pet-proofed by rubber banding the handles together with ponytail bands. You can hear him late at night banging the doors trying to get in! Carefully stacked boxes don't stand a chance with him. When he wants to go outside he taps my husband Frank on the shoulder as he is the closest to the door. Once he's out he's rolling in the dirt and climbing trees for a few hours!


Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
Teddy is definitely the smartest most loving pet we've ever had. He is my (four legged) buddy, my best friend, and will forever be in my heart and soul! Yes, I love him dearly and enjoy each moment we spend together. He knows what I mean when I say "you want to catch a pillow?" It means I'm going to go lay down for a little while and he gets on his own pillow. A few years ago we were hit with a tornado and Teddy was the only cat out of five that made it through the whole thing. In memory of his sisters Sarah, Muffie, Emily, and Joey, God bless them all! We searched for days and put out food and water, I hope they found good homes or are waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for us!

Before I finished reading your story about your 'furry babies' I was crying for the ones that are now missing [poor souls]. What a handsome Teddy... I can tell by looking at him he will always be 'mama's little man' no matter how old he gets. I have always loved cats my whole 60 some years of life & have owned several who are now residents of 'Rainbow Bridge' - they each had their own distinctive personality.

Thank you for getting me to take a moment and think of each special one that I have had and lost,

I wanted to share a photo of last month's Thrifyfun pet contest winner, Teddy Kelley, with his new cat tree purchased with his winnings!
