    Bio: Colby is a male, brown with white, ticked/mackerel tabby, domestic short hair born around April 1, 2017. He has a unique coat pattern:ticked-tabby 
    body with faint, fine herring-bone stripes, mackerel-tabby striped legs, and white socks/chest/belly. He also has a lighter-colored, diamond-shaped mark 
    between his shoulder blades. Colby is a lithe, agile, persistent, and very energetic cat. He is easily bored and needs a lot of regular stimulation to stay out of trouble. He is fast and can easily clear a 4 ft. standing jump. He needs space to RUN and surfaces to CLIMB. Colby is very curious about everything and typically overcomes any initial hesitation fairly quickly, even taunting the vacuum cleaner. He loves any type of box or bag and just about any type of toy. His absolute favorite toy is a fishing pole toy with fuzzy strips and feathers from the Dollar Tree, and he plays with 300% effort. He will bring this toy to you and keep ringing its bell when he wants you to play with him. Colby is also affectionate and is easy to cradle in your arms when he's in a mellow mood. He may be on the smaller side, but he has a loud purr. Colby self-regulates his food intake very well though he is a bit messy even with dry kibble. He is currently meal-fed 2x/day simply because his housemates are, but he eats throughout the day. His food needs to be protected from his adopted brother, Blue, who will overeat when given the chance and steal Colby's food. He is no-fuss when it comes to the litter box, is a catnip-responder, and is a champion groomer of himself and other cats. He is very good about using the cat tree for scratching, not the furniture. He chases, wrestles, and sleeps a lot with Blue. He is bonded to Blue and it would be best if they were adopted together since they were fostered together as kittens and have never been separated. He used to live with another adult cat and loved him as well. He currently lives with a big cat friendly dog and loves to play with him.
