About Me

Active within 806 Days

Hi! My name is Skippy (Missing as of 11/10/2010)

I am Domestic Shorthair from Merrill, WI

Nicknames: Punkin. I think it is quite undignified.

Age: 12 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: I caught a chipmunk. ...while on a leash! What great fun! Mommy rescued it, of course! Grrrr... fffffffft! just the other day I also caught a bunny rabbit....on my leash. Mommy wasn't fast enought this time!

My favorite tricks and treats are: I can smile as big as the Cheshire cat! I'm above any other kind of tricks, though. Tricks are for dogs! and I love Greenies! I also love the occasional snort of catnip! I also love milk, but my Mom won't give it to me because it makes me sick. I have to sneak it out of my big brother's glass.

Where I hang out: In the backyard. I love to sit on top of the refrigerator and I also love the greenhouse window. I'm sitting there in my picture. You can tell I love it, because of my big smile.

My favorite grubs: Anything out of a newly opened bag! I also like baby bunny heads.

My pet peeves: Other cats (or dogs) on my turf, except my brother, Toulouse, of course! I especially hate that big dumbo dog. You can see my brother in the picture at the bottom of my webpage. I miss him a lot. He went to Rainbow Bridge almost a year ago. He was my best friend.

What I love about my owners: Mommy always gives me water fresh from the bathroom tap. She makes sure my bowl is full and lets me outside on my leash whenever I want to go. Oh....and she puts up with my marking in the house on occasion. I'm very territorial, you know! She always listens to me when I need something.

My cat hobbies: Go outside. I love to sneak out when somebody has left the door open. Sometimes I hide by the door so I can run outside without the blasted leash! I also love to go camping with my family!

Pet motto: There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast. mew.

How We Met

My Mommy wanted a kitten and saw an ad on the grocery store bulletin board. The people I lived with had this terrible kid who carried me around by my neck! I was glad to get out of there! I was so cute, and for as rough and tough as I am, I have a very soft mew, which my Mommy just loves!

Military research, creative engineering and technological advances in prosthetics help those who have lost limbs, all or part of an arm or leg through various reasons including:
•Traumatic injuries from military combat including traffic accidents
•Circulation problems from atherosclerosis or diabetes, resulting in amputation
•Birth defects

November skies
^•.•´¯`•.•^ ^•.•´¯`•.•^ Happy November
Unexpected turn of events... It was a warm, simply beautiful day; it's a great time of year:
*the rustling of leaves & snapping twigs, sounds signaling the coming of a barren winter
*drinking hot chocolate & apple cider w/cinnamon stick
*football games, family reunions, children's laughter
*the cozy feel of fleece while curled up on the sofa
*a simmering pot of homemade soups cooking
*gourds, corn stalks, mums, planting fall bulbs
*singing time-worn songs around the bonfire
*the smell of wood burning in the fireplace
*the aroma of jams, pies & breads baking
*hiking after the Thanksgiving meal
*pumpkin patches, apple picking
*tall trees cast long shadows
*roasting marshmallows
*town fairs, hayrides
*the cool crisp air

Hello Skippy
Thanks for your prayers for Claudia. She has been missing since July 2006. Claudia was a real character. She would steal barbies and barbie doll clothes from little girls in the neighborhood and bring them home with all of her live catches. In the big city of Toronto, she never went missing. But here in Kingston she went missing twice. She was gone over a week and when she returned, she was wide eyed and never went out again for almost a year. But then she started going out again. This was around the time their were reports of cats found mutilated by a nearby school. Some psycho or disturbed group of kids were most likely responsible. The police wouldn't let the remains be seen nor give specifics. Claudia had tattoo in ear and we called Humane Society, City Hall (they deal with animals found on roads) and put posters up for large reward. We had only one phonecall. Unfortunately, it was another cat that looked like Claudia. We held out hope for years trying to believe that Claudia wasn't one of the cats found mutilated, but seems likely to be the case. Especially since we had trouble with the neighbours that took a hockey stick to my mouth which reqired surgery. So mom has given up hope and regards Claudia as an angel who watches over me. Maybe that is why I have lived so long..maybe she has given me her stolen years. You however have hope. I know a year seems like a long time but it is possible someone has taken Skippy in thinking maybe he was a stray and fell in love with his sweet personality. I've heard this has happened to other cats here on the Catchannel.Will hope that one day Skippy might come back home to his mom & dad when he gets a chance. Paws crossed. Left a vote (LAV) MAFIA
