Chip and his brother Dale arrived at the sanctuary as feral kittens some years ago, around the same time we got Bobby. They all started off in one of the back pens and the brothers got along fine, but it seems that Chip became fascinated with the out of bounds (to him) front courtyard and campaigned to be allowed through the gate into that part of the sanctuary. He eventually got his wish and now can often be found lounging at the top of the steps to the singlewide.
Chip is friendly and comfortable with people. He does take his grooming very seriously, though, so it can be a little difficult to get and hold his attention if you come across him, as I did, while he's in the middle of it.
