||One year old|

is a photo of Robert Cat known as just Bob to his intimates and
everyone else. He is a one year old male of probably mixed breed, his
background is a question mark. We live in upstate New York within the
Bob and his, not biological, sister Piper were a Christmas gift from
my parents. After searching far and wide for kittens in December (any
size, age and breed) and scouring the local SPCA's with no luck my
mother and sister found the two of them in a slightly shady local pet
store. The five kittens at the store had been transported into the
state in a dirty banana box and were filthy. Unable to take them all
home they picked out the two that would become mine. The salesman at
the store tried to get my mother to pay extra for Bob saying that he
was rare because he was missing part of his tail! After numerous vet
trips (and bills) and some surprises (Bob was so filthy he appeared
to be a little black kitten while he is really a very handsome tiger)
and a year passing they are now happy, healthy and slightly neurotic!
My two wacky cats enjoying sprinting the length of the house, only
occasionally running into things (walls, dogs, legs, ect.) and catching bugs
(both real and imaginary!). Bob's favorite game involves a motorized gun that
shoots styrofoam disks that he snags
out of the air or while they run along the ground. At the slightest purr of
the gun's motor Bob comes running. It's a great way to find him or get him out
from the nooks and crannies of the house! He does occasionally make mistakes
and has been seen sprinting towards small motorized fans!
Robert a.k.a. Bob is a great cat. He and his sister are special to me for more
than the fact that they were gifts from my parents, they are wonderful company
and have such wacky and (slightly) neurotic personalities that you just have
to love them... and I do.
