Tocchet is the oldest cat at The Kitties and Mom and the only mancat.  He is also the King Cat and this is his throne.  He got very upset when his Mom moved his throne so she could clean the floor under it and meowed at her until she put it back where it belonged.  Tocchet was a mighty hunter when he was younger, but stopped hunting when he got to be 10 years old.    The Mom has lived with Tocchet since the day he was born, March 17, 1992.  She adopted a kitty she named Cheyenne, who turned out to be pregnant.  She gave birth to four kittens, but unfortunately three of them died.  The Mom decided that she just had to keep Tocchet.  He has been a joy to her ever since.  He insists on sleeping with her every night.  Tocchet loves to lounge around on his throne and watch the other two kitties, Ariel and Lemieux, play.  He also loves looking out the window and watching the many lizards who inhabit the back yard jungle.

                                         Tocchet's the King of Cats on his throne.
                                         The perch by the window is his own.
                                                 No other cat sits there;
                                                 They have learned to beware
                                         The wrath of Tocchet the King on his throne.

Tocchet certainly seems like a ManCat who knows what he wants!

All of house is my throne.
All of house is my own.
Human beware,
Human take care,
Or I'll throw you out of my house, alone.

Mancats like Tocchet (and me) should always be able to claim the best spots!

I do not know Tocchet, but now I will go and meet him.
He is a tuxie and I like tuxies.
This is a very nice limerick, Karen Jo
