“Hi, my name is TJ.”
That’s short for “Tuxedo Junior”. HA! I may be junior now, but just you wait!
Here’s my story:
I don’t remember much from when I was really little. But when I was four weeks old I was found covered in oily goop wandering in the middle of a highway. Cars raced over top of me and I was really scared until a lady stopped her car to rescue me. And that’s when my whole life changed…
I was enrolled in Linda Felix’s Spay Day HRM foster program. She named me “Frankie” because I had nice blue eyes like some guy named Frank Sinatra.
First thing they did was feed me. That was really good. Second and third thing was bathe me. Not so good. I do NOT like bubble baths!
Then I started kindergarten with the BEST foster family ever. I had tons of toys and my very own room.
Me and Theodore became best friends. He was very cuddly and a deep thinker.
My foster mom and dad (Jan and Peter) made sure I got lots of love and attention and they started teaching me how to be gentle. I was already cute and smart.
This is me with my friend Joey. He was a rescue cat too. Joey took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. At first I kept a respectful distance but Joey couldn’t resist my charm.
Joey and his friends invited me to join them in a feast they called “breakfast”. I love breakfast! (I love lunch, dinner and bedtime snack time too!)
After I got bigger and stronger, it was time to leave my foster home for a whole new bunch of adventures in Catopia. Me and Theo can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next! I’m going to miss Joey, Jan and Peter, but I know there will be other little kittens who will need their love and encouragement.
Here’s a selection of cute videos of me at my foster home. They’re like potato chips, once you start, you won’t be able to stop at just one:
