This is the second article in my new series on our furkids. The first article, Profile: Pumpkin, The Cat Who Came Back, is a great read if you love cats so please check her out too.
Tibet is our eldest cat, and known to all who adore her as "sloth kitty". The reason she is known as sloth kitty is because she allows us to drape her around our necks, and she will sloth into a downward position, with her head hanging below her feet. She not only allows this way of holding her, but prefers it. When we try to hold her in a normal fashion, she will wiggle around until her body is in perfect sloth position. Although Tibet is known as our sloth kitty she truly is at her core a dog kitty and you will find out about the reasons we refer to her as both as you continue reading.

17. Tibet gives a fair warning to the other cats, if they get within six inches of her personal space she opens her mouth and lets out an airy hiss. Tibet loved her brothers JubJub, and Vino, who she grew up with, but she was never fond of the newer arrivals. She does tolerate Nub and has began to allow him to snuggle up to her, as long as they are not face to face! I do not think Tibet realizes their rumps are almost forming a heart. I think the fact of the matter is, Tibet does love Nub, he is the only male cat in the house now, and king of the pride, whether Tibet likes it or not.
18. Tibet is first in line in pecking order when it comes to being fed. Even our dog Lyla knows this! Tibet is also the one who will steal your food right out from under your nose. The other cats step aside and allow this so I have to keep my eyes on them while they eat.
19. While Tibet enjoys a good box like any cat, she prefers large paper bags, like those you would bring food home from a restaurant in. She is particularly fond of those from Olive Garden.
20. And just to once again point out how dog like our Tibet is, she digs into the trash can if left exposed.
I do hope you enjoyed reading about our Tibet. We love her dearly. She is the epitome of what a cat is known to be, independent, stubborn, and a pain in the rear. She is also intuitive, loving, and snuggly. Cats are pawsome!
I would love to hear about your furkids, cats, dogs, fish, sloths, whatever they may be.
