He was adopted by Jeff in 1996 and in his profile states, “I am the best pet ever. I don’t bark, bite or shed. I don’t run away or jump on people. I don’t drool and I’m very quiet. I am a vegetarian and drink only water. I take a six-month nap every year and always wake up on or about the first day of Spring.”
