Mascot/Logo: Tiberius

Full name: Summit Springs Tiberius Claudius Nero Caesar Augustus. A 12-year old neutered purebred Turkish Van. Tiberius is your basic big, strong and somewhat ill-tempered cat. Too dangerous to show, too annoying to breed, his exalted status has been reduced to common house cat. He does however; kill gophers, and rats at an astonishing rate, thereby earning his keep and much praise.
