Wake up, wake up!

June: Mr. Leroy

Likes: His Kitty Hooch catnip (shown in picture); being front and center and underfoot at a party; sitting on your briefcase so you can not go to work; playing with his water bowl and moving it across the kitchen floor like it's on a Ouija board.

Let's have a party!

Flattery won't get you very far, but I'm yours for a belly rub.

March: Sparky

Likes: Sparky loves attention — especially cheek rubs and head scratches — and taking baths. He spends a lot of time basking in the sunshine that comes through the window, and he likes watching squirrels and the neighbors through the window. A natural vegan, Sparky's favorite foods are leafy greens, berries, and bananas as a treat.

Pass the banana — and don't buy reptiles from pet stores, please!

February: Zippy

Likes: Cheese slices, bits of carrot, and peanut butter-filled bones. He likes to sit under the counter while you are cooking to catch any food scraps that may fall his way. His favorite thing to do, however, is sit on your lap and be stroked. This also includes rubbing his front paws. He loves to lick your toes and enjoys the challenge of pulling socks off your feet. He is thrilled to get new toys, and destroys them in 15 minutes.

Gosh, I'm cute.

January: Tootsie

Likes: Cheese, hot muggy nights out on the prowl, sleeping late with the boys, his Kittie Tease Delux, when his people hang out on the back deck with him.

I'm frequently mistaken for Clint Eastwood.
