Cat Dad Adam discovered Winkles & Flam one cold, snowy day in Toronto, hiding in a trashcan, eating tuna fish and playing Commander Keen.
He agreed to take them in with some ground rules:
They can only stay a week
They can't go on the couch
Flam has to set up his own PlayStation profile and not use Adam's
Needless to say, they immediately broke all the rules and have been with him for two years now. Still, look at their little eyes.
How could you stay mad?
Winkles & Flam knew they had an immediate connection with Chief Drawerer Dele: Flam knocked a full pot of yellow paint onto a mural Dele had been working on for three months, while Winkles ‘relocated’ five of his paintbrushes. (“We’re helping!” 😺😸)
Dele spends most of his free time documenting the kitties’ various escapades, drawing pictures of their daily adventures, cosplay outfits and nap times.
He gives them too many treats, because he’s a soft touch and they have his number. (He also helps them get through the scary bits in games like Resident Evil and The Last of Us.)
