Chairman Meow and Sigmund Furred
Chairman Meow is an Oriental Shorthair born in 2004. He has a brother, Luke, and sister, Luna. He was adopted from a breed rescue. His favorite activities are managing his purrsonal interest in the jewelry company of which he is CEO (appropriately named the Chairman’s Treasures), stalking and hunting his play mice toys, and providing his (very loud) opinion on all household matters.
Sigmund Furred born in 2007 is a Turkish Van (Turkish swimming cat).
He was adopted from the Anti-Cruelty Society and has a twin brother. Sigmund loves swimming in the bathtub and splashing water everywhere (typical of his breed), opening kitchen cabinets with child proof locks to steal his favorite treats, and leaping in mid-air to catch his favorite toys.
Sushi Annie Yakatori (resident cockatiel)
Sushi is a white face cockatiel with three sisters. She was born in 2008 and adopted when she was three months old. Sushi loves to supervise the activities of her feline “brothers”, bobble head on command, and imitate high pitch sounds like doorbells.
