I'm new this website and wanted to introduce myself and my kitty :)
My name is Becky and my tuxedo kitty is Timmy and we're from Daytona Beach FL!!
I found Timmy in my backyard back in 2007! He was just a teeny tiny kitten, shown in a picture below. For a week, we thought that he was actually a female cat and was originally name "Sandy". When we took him to the vet to get shots and a checkup about about a week later, they told us that he is actually a boy!
This will sound silly, but I came up with the name Timmy after the character Timmy Turner from the "Fairly Odd Parents" (I was 12 when I found him, still watching kid shows haha). The story of Timmy Turner was that when he was born, his parents thought he was a girl and bought him all pink stuff. Well, as it turned out, he ended up being a boy. I thought it was cute and fit my cat perfectly.
For the first few years we had him, he was so attached to my sister. However, about 4 years ago, my sister moved out. He cried all throughout the house for the next few days. After that, he ended up being attached to me. Now, when I go to sleep, he follows me into my room and curls up right next to me all night long.
He is so sweet and when I'm sad or having a panic attack, I think he can sense it because he gets extra cuddly and meows at me as if he's concerned. He really is always there for me. I guess you can say he is my soul cat haha.
I can't believe he will be 10 years old this September!!! He still acts like he's young and I think it looks as if he hasn't aged!! I love this kitty with all my heart
