Finch the Tabby, the Cat of the Day
Name: Finch
Age: Fifteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tabby
Home: Waite Park, Minnesota, USA
   Finch was ten years old and up for adoption at a national pet store chain. No one wanted him because of his age. But I wanted him. We have been together five years. He is laid back, friendly, playful, and a real people cat. Finch loves to play with his small mouse toys, throwing and batting them around then chasing after them. Like all cats, he loves chasing the red dot especially when it is on a wall where he can jump up and swat at it. He loves to be petted. Finch always sits close to me.

     Finch's favorite routine is "beddy-bye." When I say "Beddy-bye!" he starts meowing non-stop. When I get into bed at night, I lay on my side and move the pillow so there is a space for him to lie down. Once I am settled, I pat the bed and say "Kitty, kitty, kitty." He jumps up and lays down on his spot next to the pillow. As soon as I rub his belly he stops meowing and he purrs and makes cute trill sounds.

     There is one thing Finch likes better than beddy-bye, being outside in the summer. He is an indoor cat and is afraid if I put him on the grass. But I live in a third-floor apartment and have a covered balcony. There is a hanging screen so he can let himself out whenever he wants, in the summer, that's every day. He feels safe and loves to watch the "action." Whether it's birds, dogs, people, squirrels or anything else that moves.

     Yes, a finch is a bird! I named my favorite cat after my favorite bird! Somehow, he got nicknamed Mr. Finch. I usually just call him "Cat."
