Mr. Sunflower is an orange blotched tabby cat. He was named after his now faded nose marking which looked like a sunflower seed. He was first seen on February 25th, 2024, at around 10:20 AM (LFT) in Auspicious Restaurant.

Mr. Sunflower stopped visiting Auspicious Restaurant around mid-April, leaving viewers to speculate about his whereabouts. On June 16, viewers discovered that Sunflower actually originated from and can be found at a different feeder, called Kitty Happy House. He still looks as chilled out as ever.

Behavior

Mr. Sunflower is a cat who LOVES sleeping. He often becomes a loaf and enters zen mode. Once in the feeder, he slept for approximately two hours. Mr. Sunflower is also quite timid, and does not enjoy it when other cats, usually male ginger cats, are around. However, he will not put up a fight, either going back to sleep or avoiding the feeder entirely. He's known for sniffing the camera and smirking, they're possibly hobbies of his.

It's speculated that he may have some sort of strained relationship with Mr. Turkey, as the dates of his disappearances line up with Mr. Turkey's appearances to the various feeders the two frequent.

Appearance

Mr. Sunflower's coat is an orange blotched tabby with white spotting on his paws, stomach, and chin. He used to have a unique marking on the bridge of his nose, most likely stemming from an injury. On March 17, it was noticed that the marking looked slightly smaller than it had looked in February. The marking was completely gone when Mr. Sunflower was found on June 16 and his mark was notably missing in the first captured photo of him.

April 2024

  • April 06, 2024: At around 09:00 AM (LFT), he was seen cuddling and trying to dry off Mrs. Eeper's wet bottom by licking her fur.
  • April 09, 2024: At around 08:20 AM (LFT), Sunflower arrived at the feeder and munched on kibble for around 10 minutes, while Mrs. Eeper slept beside him in front of the feeder.
  • April 12, 2024: At around 03:00 AM (LFT), Sunflower arrived to eat and sleep for around 10-20 minutes.
  • April 13, 2024: At 07:53 AM (LFT), he and Mrs. Eeper stayed in the feeder for a morning nap, until 08:00 AM (LFT), when Eeper left him alone at the feeder until 08:05 AM (LFT), presumably for a bathroom break. Mr. Sunflower stayed in the feeder to remain sleeping for the duration of their nap period.
  • April 17, 2024: Around 04:20 AM (LFT), Mr. Sunflower arrived to eat, sleep, and have a solo lounge around the feeder for a bit of time. He showed off his cuteness to the back camera often, staying for around 3 hours until leaving.
  • April 20, 2024: Around 02:30 AM (LFT), Mr. Sunflower made his way to the feeder sitting, weirdly in the corner next to the feeder rather than the corner closer to the back camera. It is suspected he moved towards the feeder as there was a food bowl sitting in his regular sleep spot. He proceeded to sleep until Mr. Sneaky(?) approached, and attempted to hide from Mr. Sunflower, although this attempt at hiding was futile as Sunflower could still sense his presence. As Mr. Sneaky slowly approached the feeder, Sunflower observed and eeped until he was swatted at by Sneaky. Sunflower looked visibly upset at that swat and stared at the spot that Mr. Sneaky used to run away from the feeder.

June 2024

  • June 16, 2024: Viewers discovered that Mr. Sunflower has been visiting Kitty Happy House. He appears to be a semi-frequent visitor, and has been seen relaxing whilst there.
    • At around 06:35 PM (LFT), Mr. Sunflower made his grand return to the English community. He did very typical sunflower things, eating a bit of kibble and then sleeping in a loaf formation. He left a few minutes later. Welcome home, Mr. Sunflower.

July 2024

  • July 18, 2024: At 06:47 AM (LFT), Mr. Sunflower returned to the Kitty Happy House after a brief period of disappearance. This sighting is notable as Mr. Turkey was captured by the TNR Trap only three hours before his return, possibly signifying some sort of avoidance between Mr. Sunflower and Mr. Turkey?
  • July 19, 2024: Mr. Sunflower came to the Kitty Happy House again at 02:41 AM (LFT), which marks more sightings these two days than in the past two weeks. He even came by a second time at around 05:00AM (LFT) for a second bite.
  • July 20, 2024: At around 01:00 PM (LFT), Mr. Sunflower made his grand return to Auspicious Restaurant after three months of not being sighted there. Was Mr. Turkey that scary to Mr. Sunflower? Did he overhear Mr. Turkey's capture and finally felt safe enough to come back? We may never know.
  • July 20, 2024: Making his way back to Auspicious Restaurant, Sunflower was spotted around 10:40PM (LFT), sitting around casually and nibbling at the kibble supply. He then began to inspect the other container of food, which was empty unfortunately, so he resorted to loafing in front of the feeder. (Like the good ole' days.) Eventually, he left the main part of the feeder, however he appeared to still be hanging around, as viewers could see the tip of his tail from the top view.

(Not every cat sighting is documented.)
