Birth Month: July

TJ is a sweet boy who loves a good game of chase. He’s also a master nest-builder, and especially likes using plastic toys to make himself a nice nest. He’s very fond of his caregivers, specifically the ones he knows well. If you’re new, TJ needs a little time to feel you out, and if you try to get familiar too quickly he’s been known to throw a little poo to let you know he’s not feeling it. (However, he’s very careful with his aim so as not to accidentally get anything on his friends!)
