Tyrone is an eight-year-old, 17-pound, short-haired white cat with black spots so placed as to suggest Zorro, a role played by his namesake, Tyrone Power. Rescued from the local pound with nary a minute to spare, he walked into his new home and immediately assumed the mantle of top cat, a position he holds to this day.
He enjoys corn muffins, taco chips and chocolate milk, which he drinks by dipping his paw into questionable abandoned glasses and licking the purloined treat from his paws. He is very fond of empty boxes and grocery sacks and holds the world's indoor record for both toilet paper and paper towel shredding. A somewhat diffident groomer, he allows the female of his family to assume that task, but the feline who holds his heart in her very paws is Cleo, whom he met two years ago and immediately recognized as his soul mate.
Currently, Cleo and Tyrone are deeply involved in a project, the details of which they refuse to reveal to anyone.
