Whiskers

















Whiskers is 6 years old. My daughter, Katie, was at her dad's house and they visited a friend whose cat had kittens. Katie wanted a kitten and so Whiskers went to live with her dad. She named him Whiskers because they gave him a bath and his fur was all wet and unfluffed, so all you could see was his big whiskers. A few months ago, Katie's dad decided he couldn't keep Whiskers anymore because he was getting divorced. He said if I didn't want him that he would take him to a shelter. Of course I wanted him! He was very shy when he came to live with us, but he has really come out of his shell. He sleeps with me every night. He loves tummy rubs and his favorite snack is Cat Sip. When he doesn't get it he meows very loudly!! I call him my little panther because he is so muscular and he moves so stealthy. He gets along very well with my other cat, Oreo, and Sammy the dog. I'm so glad he came to live with us! -Karen S.

...the pic on the left is like something out of (fuzzy) Vogue magazine..........why is Whiskers ignoring the fuzzy green ball?.....

Discuss.

He wasn't ignoring the green ball, just taking a break. He'd just finished hunting that ball down and killing it about 10 times!

Also, I must have had a typo. I meant to say that his favorite snack is Cat Sip. Its lactose free milk especially for kitties.

Thanks for making Whiskers Cat of the Day!

Good Morning fuzz Family!

Whiskers is a very handsome kitty. I looks like he is daring someone to take the fuzzy green ball away from him. he does look like a lil black panther.

Hello all! I agree Rosie, I love the sexy pose in the photo on the left! And Whiskers, you have very shiny fur and a definite panther-like quality!

KarenS - Typo noted and fixed. :) I'd never heard of Cat Sip. I'll have to look for it. Where do you get it from?

I bought it at Feeders Supply. My mom says they also have it at Meijers. (Princess loved it too!)It comes in a blue 8 oz carton.

I never had a cat that liked milk so much. I caught him one morning drinking out of my daughter's cereal bowl that she left on the table. He cries for it every morning - or anytime he wants it he just runs to the dish and meows in a very demanding tone!

Hello you gorgeous House Panther! You sound like Cocoa with the loud meows for treats, except Cocoa's demanding Temptations - and I do mean Demanding.
