Koko is a neutered male Siamese born August 15, 2012
and last adopted April 17, 2017.
He is 5 years and 10 months old.
His full name is Kao K'o-Kung (after a 13th-century Chinese artist).
He is an expert at the Siamese whisker torture. Which is useful for waking up late sleepers.
Favorite activities include trying to catch a necktie dangled for his exercise, winning "Blink" (a cat vs human staring contest; winner gets a tiny cube of cheese), playing "Scrabble", the dictionary game, knocking books off shelves, and playing Sparrow.
Favorite foods: Catawba juice, gourmet cuisine catered by a local restaurant, homemade granola, pork liver cupcakes, diced beef with consommé, pate, caviar, and canned seafood (whatever you do don't let him see you add the vitamin drops).
He has the Florence Nightingale instinct and has saved his owner's life 6 times. As well as the lives of over 200 people.
He is unusually intelligent and has an uncanny knack of knowing when something is wrong. (Foo stats just can't measure it).
Koko will walk with a harness.
He has been an apartment dweller all is life. Grass was a rare treat before he came.
He is here while his owner, a newspaper man, is on assignment.
As he grows older he is "developing a more expressive voice with a gamut of clarion yowling, guttural growling, tenor yodeling, and musical yikking." His latest is a sound like a machine gun or woodpecker.
He is fascinated with buttons, knobs, and levers and has operated an elevator.
He and Yum Yum like to help their owner by stepping on the typewriter keys, biting pens, and sitting on notes.
He gets upset if anyone has a name that sounds like his.
This Siamese sniffs things made with glue.
He and Yum Yum like to sleep on a cushion on top of the fridge.
Expects pampering as his royal prerogative.
He has 20% more whiskers than most cats.
Koko helped catch an escaped prisoner.
This cat causes trouble by licking the emulsion off of photographs; so keep them out of reach . . . if you can.
He causes trouble by snitching banana peels. At least one person has slipped and fallen.
I received a white bear rug like Koko and Yum Yum had when they were young squirts. When they aren't doing mortal combat with it they are sleeping or rolling on it. I wonder how long before the other cats get in on the fun.
