penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Mom says it's too far away from Antarctica for me to go stay in Chicago with Phil and Angie. So they went and got a little cat instead. Sometimes you just have to settle! HAHAHA.

See you later!

Name: Sunkist
Whereabouts: Evanston, IL


I am a calico cat named Sunkist (like the orange, which I have lots of in my shiny coat!) Phil and Angie drove all the way to Algonquin (which is a long way to go) to come and adopt me. We aren't sure exactly when my birthday is, but we think it's around January of 2003. They bought a really cool cat carrier for me to come home in, which of course I spent the entire trip trying to get out of. While we are on that subject, I don't travel well and don't like being picked up, so you can imagine how much I REALLY enjoy that cool cat carrier!

I'm kind of shy and it took a while for me to get used to being the ONLY cat in the place, not to mention being in the city. That's cause the place I used to live had a LOT of cats and was sort of in the country. Since we've moved to our new house, I like to spend a lot of time looking out the big front windows and watching the traffic and waiting for my Daddy, Phil!

Occasionally, I will wake up, go wandering around the house, meow really loud, and then just kind of stand there in one of my kittie beds with a toy in my mouth. Angie thinks its a catching prey sort of thing, but I just like to play with toys late at night.

Here are some more pictures of my cute self!
