We adopted this over the weekend.
We think we're sticking with "Jack" for his name, just because. He's about 7 or 8 months old, neutered, good with kids and dogs, and highly entertaining. Alex is in charge of regular bathing and nail-clipping, since it's "his" cat. Sleeps on MY head, but it's "his" cat. Go figure. Anyway, Alex has missed having a cat in the house ever since we've been married, and having plunged him into the depths of dogtown and horseville the way I did, I couldn't very well say no when he brought up the notion of having a pet cat again. Apparently Buddy the Barn Cat didn't count, because he wasn't a cuddly, snuggly lap-cat. I think I'll adjust pretty well, despite never having been a cat person before--this is one darn personable cat. And! No sneezing by me!
Jack welcomes all visitors, and enjoys napping, taunting poodles, eating, sleeping on people, "catloafing," and Windowsill Theater.
Especially when there are squirrels, which is pretty much daily.
Special thanks to MFOA rescue, and Jack's fostermom Kristen. We'll give him a good home, with plenty of live theater!
