Tabasco (formerly known as Mikey) is happily settled into the family after a September 1 adoption. He is playful and active; his favorite games include diving and chasing after the Birdie he brought with him from Florida, as well as pursuing a plastic chew stick under rugs, doors — just about anything.

When he wants to play he will “request” with a small meow that we follow him, and he leads the way to his toy. Tabasco also enjoys watching the birds and supervising yard work from a sunny window (see photo). He also is helping me to remain fit by encouraging use of my standing desk as he has claimed my home office chair as his property.

He’s a terrific cat, and we are so happy we found him at NEAS!
