Mr. Chen


Here is Mr. Chen looking his fiercest as he attacks a piece of string.  About three months ago, Mr. Chen discovered how much fun string can be.  Now he begs to play with it all the time.  His Mom and Dad are very careful to make sure that he doesn't try to eat it, but they both enjoy playing with him with a piece of string.  Mr. Chen and Ollie were both born in May of 2006 and were adopted together that September from Morris Animal Refuge.  Their Mom and Dad were
lonesome because the cat who came before, Bingo, had gone to the Rainbow Bridge and the house seemed too empty without him.  Mr. Chen was recommended to them and they hesitated because Bingo was black and they thought it would be too painful to adopt another black cat, but once they held him in their arms, they fell in love with him.  The Dad still wasn't too sure about it, so he kept looking at other kitties and found Ollie.  The Mom really wanted Mr. Chen and the Dad wanted Ollie.  The nice lady at Morris Animal Refuge suggested that they adopt both of them and so they did.  The first time Mr. Chen and Ollie actually met was in the cat carrier when they were taken home.  Luckily, they liked each other at first sight and they have been the best of brothers ever since.  Mr. Chen loves to play more than anything else.  His first love was playing with toy mice.  He even took them to bed with him.  He still likes to play with them, but now he likes string better.  Mr. Chen and Ollie love to snuggle and wrestle with each other.  They keep each other entertained for hours.

                                    Lately, Mr. Chen likes to play with string.
                                    Right now it's his very favorite thing.
                                               He chews and whaps it,
                                               Bites it and fwaps it.
                                    Mr. Chen has discovered the joys of string.
