I have a 5 year old Tuxedo cat named Simon. I got him from the Humane Society. sadly his former owners either didn't spend too much attention to him because he won't let you pick him up and hold him. Kinda sad, but when I come home, he flips to his back and waits for a belly rub.

Tebow is a rescue kitty that adopted us when he was around 3 months old. We don't know his exact birthday, so we celebrate it on December 1. He will be 3 years old this year. He is black, with subtle dark stripes & has a small patch of white on his chest. I named him Tebow because he is very athletic. He loves to play, but 3 times/ day, I have to lay down with him & his blanket for a session of kneading & petting. We are currently looking for a playmate for Tebow. I'm hoping to find an affordable or rescue Scottish Fold kitten. Oh, and yes, he is named after Tim Tebow, one of my favorite athletes/sportscaster. Blessings to all of you & your fur babies...<3
