Collared today: Tab

NAME: Tab

OWNER: Jerry, Peggy and Colleen

HOW THEY MET: My dad brought Tab and his sister (Miss Putter) home from Bethlehem Steel in Sparrows Point

AGE: 16

HOME: Highlandtown

BREED: Ginger tabby                                      

BEST TRICK: When Tab was a year old, if I threw a rabbit’s foot up the stairs, he would fly up the stairs and retrieve it over and over again. Now, when I say “jump” he jumps up on the couch, curls up and takes a nap.

FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Eating and sleeping

FAVORITE FOOD: Whatever my dad is eating and whipped cream from a can!

FUNNIEST MOMENT: He saw himself in a mirror, he arched his back and hissed at his reflection.

BEWARE THE KITTY FACE: Tab gives you what I call his “kitty cat” face, which is, he looks at you with his eyes half closed hoping that his cuteness will earn him some cat treats.

IF TAB A MOTTO FOR LIFE, IT WOULD BE: Feed me, feed me and scratch my chin and I will purr like a motorboat.
