About Me

Active within 2355 Days

Hi! My name is Lemur

I am a Turkish Van from Longmont, CO

Nicknames: Lemur Beemer

Age: 11 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: One time Lemur was drinking from his water bowl out on our deck. My husband was sitting nearby, reading the paper. A bird flew towards our deck. In one swift move, Lemur leapt from his water bowl and nailed the bird! My husband didn't think Lemur even saw the bird, much less be ready to catch it. He said Lemur's move was the most athletic thing he'd ever seen a cat do.

My favorite tricks and treats are: Not really. We're just happy that he's happy.

We haven't seen him swimming, but he does like to be outside in the rain or snow.

He made a 1500-mile cross-country trip when we moved, and he handled it beautifully. and
Dry cat treats and the occasional bird.

Where I hang out: He's laying on one right now--the reclining chair in our home office.

My favorite grubs: Dry cat food. I think he's the only cat on the planet that doesn't like wet food! He also has kind of a sensitive stomach and he seems to be aware that wet food disagrees with him.

My pet peeves: He really doesn't seem to have any. He's a pretty laid-back kind of guy. He doesn't like people converging on him, especially indoors, but he doesn't hiss or fuss. He's very patient. He's much happier "hanging out" with people outdoors.

What I love about my owners: They give me noms and play wif me and snuggle wif me. And they let me go outside whenever I wants.

My cat hobbies: What most cats do--sleep, eat, and play! He does like to nap with me in the afternoon, and he'll often try to "herd" me to bed at naptime!

How We Met

Lemur adopted us. Believe it or not, he was a stray who wandered into our neighborhood. He had no collar and no chip, either. We called the local shelters and no one was missing a cat like him. We lived in a college town, and at the end of the school year, students who adopt pets often abandon them when going back home. (Grrrr!) We think Lemur may have been one of those cats, as he was barely a year old when we found him.

I had no idea Lemur was a pure breed until I was leafing through a cat book at the local bookstore.

Lemur came into our lives about a month after my father died. I swear it was my dad's way of comforting me and my daughter!

He's been a real joy for our family.
