The original Thin Ice cat, Atticus, known as Atti, was born in a barn in Elma, NY in November of 2005 and came to live at Thin Ice in March 2006.
Simon was born in August of 2013 and came to live at Thin Ice shortly thereafter. The life of a shop cat wasn't for him so we pulled the old switcheroo and took him home in November of 2016 and brought his mom, Lyra, to live at the store.
Lyra was a pregnant West Side stray when she was adopted in July of 2013. She came to live at the store in November of 2016.
