*28/6 Update! Toffie may not have to go to the SPCA after all! *fingers crossed
Hi everyone. Meet Toffie.
Toffie is a nice, caramel colour, but to make things easier for the owner and the cat, he’s been named Toffie. Toffie’s a he because after searching the web, it’s been established that his anatomy resembles more of a male cat than that of a female’s. Also, Toffie is not exactly very coy around the resident cat. He is a big bully.
Seconds after this picture was taken, Toffie walked over to the resident cat’s bowl and ate from there. Not happy with the fact that the resident cat still continued eating without walking away, Toffie lifted up his tiny paw and swatted at the big cat’s head. The resident cat, though extremely boyish- and daft-looking (like Hugh Grant), was not a pushover. He rose to his full height and Toffie ran away whimpering. Having said that, both cats were left alone at home today after three nights of socialising, and both are unscathed after a whole day without supervision. The resident cat is grudgingly happy to have a companion while the little one is happy to have three meals and a soft bed everyday.
At night, Toffie prefers to sleep with a human, especially if he was given permission to sleep on the pillow, or with his face next to the human’s, or with his belly tucked under the human’s chin. He will not have it any other way. In the day, Toffie is a marvellously clever tyrant who runs so fast all that can be seen is an orange blur. As much as he is a clinger during bedtime, Toffie is an independent trooper during daytime. There has never been any cat like Toffie.
Unfortunately, Toffie will be going to the SPCA tomorrow, where his future is just as bleak as was the time before he was picked up from the streets.
