This is Bebe, sitting in a box, which is one of his favorite things to do.  I made a bad mistake yesterday.  It was Bebe, not Tiger who had the favorite toy, which was a sheepskin mouse, not a rat, who played with it until it became a shapeless mass, then possibly lost it by hiding it in a wastepaper basket.  Bebe is the second oldest cat living at Pumpkin's house.  He was found as a tiny stray, not even properly weaned, on January 3, 1996.  He was bottle fed for a few weeks, until he could eat solid food.  He was originally the cat of Pumpkin's Mom's sister, but when they moved into an apartment which did not allow pets, he came to live at Pumpkin's house.  Bebe is the official new cat greeter.  He was the first cat to accept first Tiger, then Pumpkin, as new brothers.  After my mistake yesterday, I am not absolutely sure of anything any more, but I think Bebe is the cat who enjoys unrolling toilet paper.  He loves wrestling with his two brothers and they all have a lot of fun together.  Bebe really loves boxes, for sitting in and chewing on.

                                                  Bebe is a box-loving kitty.
                                                  He sits inside and looks so pretty.
                                                        He chews the sides,
                                                        While inside he hides,
                                                   'Til the box is thrown out, more's the pity.

Hi Karen Jo
I like Bebe! We both like unrolling the toilet paper. Maybe Bebe would be my buddy.
Don't worry about mom and the name mix up. Mom's actually mad at herself for not being clearer.
I also like Tiger's tummy rub picture.
