Bert just loves to be outside. Here he is supervising his Mom working in the garden. Like Pearl and Jake, Bert is a very good hunter. He is the speediest cat of the three and that really makes a difference. Bert also likes to be up high. He will climb up on the fence outside and seek the high spots inside to sit and watch the goings-on. He loves his nip and is especially fond of the nip banana. Bert was adopted in April of 2006 from the same shelter that Pearl came from. The shelter lady knew that the Mom and Dad were looking for a tuxie kitty after Basil went to the Bridge in January and she called the Mom and Dad as soon as Bert and his friend Cash arrived. As soon as the Mom set eyes on him, she knew that Bert was the kitty they were looking for. Bert was named after the chimney sweep in Mary Poppins and the name suits him very well. He is an adventurous and fun kitty. An interesting situation developed after Bert moved in. Jake had claimed the Dad as his special friend and Pearl had claimed the Mom. Bert looked around and claimed George, the dog, as his special friend. Bert and George spend a lot of time together, playing, wrestling and napping. Bert also plays a lot with Jake and some with Pearl, but he prefers to play with George.

                                    George is the one that Bert loves to pounce.
                                    He does it with such aplomb and bounce.
                                           They wrestle for fun
                                           And when they are done
                                     They both curl up and nap at once.
