Tubby the Domestic Shorthair, the Cat of the Day
Name: Tubby
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Domestic Shorthair
Home: Falls Church, Virginia, USA
   I'd like to introduce my cat, Tubby. I'll let Tubby tell his story:

     I was given to my dad as a birthday present ten years ago. I've been told that I was picked out of the litter because I was the runt, and because I was a mellow and quiet guy. I guess I fooled them!

     I love getting into mischief. I've been known to tip over full water glasses and knock items off of the kitchen counter late at night while my parents are sleeping, so they have to "Tubby Proof" the house before they go to bed. I also love to get into the closet while my mom is getting ready for work in the morning so I can chew on her leather shoes. What can I say, I have a foot fetish!

     My dad jokes that I'm a garbage can cat because I love to play with shopping bags, old shoe laces, drinking straws, bottle caps, and especially scrap pieces of wrapping paper, or as I like to call them - safety mats. I also love to play hide-and-seek, and I'll often hide in my dad's gym bag or luggage or I'll cram myself into a shoe box - not an easy task for a 15-pound cat!

     My step-sister, Jasmine and I don't get along very well, so I like to torment her by swatting at her under the door or stealing her treats before she has a chance to eat them.

     Despite being a punk, (that's what my dad calls me sometimes), I do have a soft side. I love to snuggle by flopping down on a lap or getting a belly scratch or a neck and shoulder rub, since I can't reach back there by myself. I'll even humor my parents by letting them hold me like a baby - but just for a little while. Overall, I'm one lucky guy and my parents couldn't imagine life without their little Tubbelard J.
