Brown Tabby, Domestic Shorthair
Briggs and Stratton were street cats who wandered their neighborhood in search of food. Even so, they were pretty scrawny looking, especially Briggs. As soon as they entered their foster home, it was clear that they wanted the house life. Their names come from a small engine manufacturer because their purr-motors are frequently in use.
When we took them to the vet for their first checkup, we got several surprises. Based on their behavior and joint wanderings, it was assumed they were brothers. Not so, Stratton is older, more battle-scarred too. We decided that Briggs, at least, had been in a house before, because he found and opened the vet’s cabinet. Finally, the vet pointed out that Briggs has the head structure and face of a bobcat. Despite his wild looks, he has been a committed pacifist around my other cats and seeks out attention from people.
Given their size and streetwise natures, I assumed Briggs or Stratton would take over from my rather weak queen. However, they have had enough of fighting and have not challenged anyone. They like to sleep on my daughter’s bed and love to be petted. Stratton particularly likes it when I work on the computer. He rubs on me and makes it very difficult to type! For some reason, Briggs likes to open the folding doors to my laundry room. He walks in, looks around, and leaves again. It is possible he likes to keep a safe retreat available.
