Hi! My name is Gumby and I am Doogan's brother. Check out Doogan's story to read about how we were adopted by our humans.
I am a handsome Tuxedo cat. Mom says I am "beautiful", but I
always tell her P-L-E-E-E-E-E-S-E the
word is "handsome"!
I have an interesting story to tell, too. You see, I was the smallest of the litter
and always a bit timid of other cats and people. When I was a kitten I was fine for awhile in my new home, but then something
My Mommy and Daddy adopted this big Tiger cat named Twiggy. Well, I'll tell you!! Twiggy was gentle
as can be except he stared at me and I was really terrified. I ran to a closet in the basement and would not come out. Mommy
and Daddy came down to play with me and feed me every day (Mom said I was
getting "room service"). I sorta
wanted to go upstairs to play with Doogan and Mommy and Daddy, but HE was there too.
Mommy and Daddy tried carrying
me upstairs several times but I just ran back to MY closet. Mommy even talked to the "cat psychiatrist" at Cornell
University and we tried medication. Mommy called it my bravery pills but they did not work. Soooo, I lived my life in the
Well, the years passed and one day Twiggy got really sick. Mommy said that Twig had cancer. It took me two
years after Twiggy was gone, but then I mustered up all the bravery I could find and made a REALLY FAST run through the upstairs.
Well, guess what? No TWIGGY! I made many more fast runs through the upstairs over the next few weeks... then I decided
it was safe to come up.
Now I come up every day and play with Doogan and Mommy and
Daddy. My favorite thing
to do is to sit in Mommy's lap when she is watching TV. I love to sit there and purr. I also like to "came a calling"
when Mom works on the computer so that I can get my neck scratched. What a life!!!
Oh yeah, I have some cool nick
names too like "Gumbler", "Gum", and "Sweet Gum Baby".
Don't forget to read about Doogan's story, too.
