G.T.


This is G.T. up on top of one of the cat trees at Forty Paws, showing off his splint after he broke his leg about a year ago.  G.T. is  probably the most active cat at Forty Paws.  He loves to tear around the house like his butt was on fire, racing across the floor, leaping up on furniture, jumping from the top of the cat tree to the top of the china cabinet and back again.  One day he missed his jump from the top of the cat tree to the top of the china cabinet and broke his leg in three places.  He had to wear a splint for 12 weeks, but that didn't stop him from climbing up to the top of the cat trees.

G.T. is seven years old.  He loves people food, especially aerosol whipped cream, grated sharp cheddar cheese, salmon patties and Maw's homemade chicken pot pie.  He does not like tuna.  G.T. is the cat most likely to start a game of Thundering Herd of Elephants.  He has also picked up Dorf's habit of picking on Reno, Obi and Bow, but he gets into trouble for that.  He will often wait crouched at the cat flap to the cat enclosure, hoping some bird will mistakenly blunder in there.  If one does, he is on it in a flash.

                                  G.T. runs through the house like his tail is on fire.
                                  He leaps from the cat tree to get even higher.
                                                  He once broke his leg
                                                  And walked with a peg,
                                 But he still climbed the cat tree, 'cause he likes it up higher.

Are we sure his name isn't G.T.O., little deuce coupe...
maybe he should get together with Faz, last time we saw Faz he was hanging on to crutches (but just in jest we think)...
