This is Calvin, cute isn't he??
I haven't blogged about my cats. We have ( had) three cats: Cooper and Chloe who are black brother and sister cats, collectively referred to as "the black babies" because although five years old they are small, and Calvin an 11 yr. old grey tiger who is also quite small. In the past we have had as many as seven , yeah I know crazy cat woman, but we have never gone out an gotten a cat. They have all found us or our kids. Brett, our youngest son, was singlehandedly responsible for five cats, including the three we have now. Others have found us in various ways and we are just too softhearted. This week hubbie told me that a guy who works for him had this cat hanging around his shed. He was hungry and very friendly and seemed to have been someone's pet. Said guy couldn't keep him because he just adopted a cat which makes his cat total...ONE! After checking with the local shelter and the SPCA it seemed the cat was doomed, so Bob said "I've got a home for him". Tonight he arrived at his new home and the general consensus is that it is a male cat, but he is still hiding under a cupboard in the kitchen with a bowl of food and water, so I can't really tell much from that angle. The " drive thru vet" is coming tomorrow to do bloodwork and check the kitty out and give him shots. From what I can see it is a medium sized tiger cat with very soft, possibly medium length fur and a very loud purr. More as the story develops.
Oh yeah, thanks for listening to me whine and for all your kind comments. I love you all.
