Tamika Bickham's Cat
Sky turned me into a cat person from the day I picked him up at just 4 weeks old. He always seems to know when I need a laugh, a cuddle, or a break from work. I’m proud to be his human.

My mom is my best friend. She’s also the most energetic and organized person I know, which is why she’s also our administrator. Glad to be her daughter, and I’ll tell you, she’s hard to keep up with!
My closest friends call me “Meeks." But my friends who know me really well -- know I’m able to fall asleep wherever and whenever, so “Sleepy Meeks” is also a fit.
