-<b> Shows affection by:</b> Purring and kneading<br />
-<b> Will usually be found:</b> On top of our bed, curled up asleep.<br />
-<b> Likes to be rubbed:</b> On top of his head, under his neck, ears and sometimes on his stomach.<br />
-<b> Favorite toy?</b> Laser light<br />
-<b> Loves this treat:</b> Loves wet cat food (Fancy Feast)<br />
-<b> Terrified of:</b> Nothing. He is very mellow.<br />
-<b> Worst habit:</b> Waking us up in the wee hours of the morning (like an alarm clock!)<br />
-<b> Any health scares?</b> Yes, he was very sick six hours after we adopted him from a local pet shelter. He had an upper respiratory infection. We took him to an emergency animal hospital. Thankfully, he made it! He also has allergies.<br />
-<b> Where he sleeps:</b> Usually in bed with us.<br />
-<b> Strange but true:</b> He likes to drink his water in the morning out of a Dixie cup. He especially likes when I hold the cup for him.<br />
-<b> Comments:</b> There is nothing like shelter cat! Simon is our third one and is the only Siamese we've had. I find him to be extremely intelligent.
