Toby Tufty-Toes, the Cat of the Day
Name: Toby Tufty-Toes
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Maine Coon
Home: Saanich, British Columbia, Canada
   Howdy folks! My name is Toby Tufty-Toes and I'm a nine-year-old Maine Coon boy and I live with my purrents in Saanich, British Columbia, Canada. I am a very Big boy too as I weigh twenty pounds (9 kg). When I was a baby, I was very sick and the white coats gave me some banana-flavored medicine. Mama and Daddy called it "ick" and I didn't like it at first, but I got used to it and used to peep and open my mouth for the eye dropper. That's how I grew up to be so big, even if it did take my legs a long time to catch up! I really love it when my purrents remind me of those days and I give them such a look. For many years I was not very cuddly, but since I turned nine, I love to snuggle on the couch with my Papa., and I make him turn on his side so there is room for me - after all, I weight twenty pounds! I also give my purrents lick-kissies now, too!

   Well, that's me in a nutshell! Hope you enjoy my pictures.

   Love, Toby Tufty-Toes.

    Toby loves to play with a wand toy - a short stick with a very long fabric tail - he gets so excited - it's like he is now having his missing kitten-hood because of his illness. He is not a lap cat but will snuggle on the couch. If you look at him, he just lights up and you can see the love coming right out of him - he smiles too!

    Our precious Toby is known as the butler - he escorts his purrents everywhere but only at his own stately pace. Even though he is going on ten, he plays just like a kitten! His mouth is open and he smiles really big. He has a VERY loud voice and he also likes to hear his own voice. He loves to cuddle with us and even though he is a very big boy, his purr is very soft and cooey. You can see the mischief in his eyes and suddenly he gets a case of the "sillies" and runs all over the place and attacks all his scratching posts. He's not much interested in people food, but does love his Temptations! We sure hope he stays with us at least another ten years because he is so very sweet! We sure love our Toby Tufty-toes!
