Arrival Story: I had adopted a wonderful feral, Timmy Tomcat, who was companion to my friend Inky and myself. I had been discussing a local no kill shelter Kitty Cottage and finally we went over on a Saturday to see the cats. Well it is a great shelter and we spent some time in the different rooms and gave pets to all who requested them. Well there was a young Tom cat who made it a point to come close by and look me over. My friend commented that he seemed to want to go home with me. We laughed and I gave him a good petting and we said goodbye to all. Well I have a tough time going to those places as I want to take everyone home and just give them the best that can be lived. Well, over the next week I started thinking about how Tim could use a more energetic playmate, and, well, one thing leads to another. We went back the next weekend to see the cats. I admit I had a little idea. Just a speck of and thought. A tiny glimmer, hardly a blip in the grand scheme of things. So we were sitting back in the little second floor room and in he came. The same black Tom. He went up the cat tree and gave me a look and reached out his paw. So Toby was adopted. We did the paperwork and he came home the next week. He fit right in as he is very outgoing. I must say Tim took a bit of time to get used to him and Inky took a bit longer. But all ended just wonderful good. He did not bug Inkster and the deadly duo (against any intruders of the multi legged variety) started their deep friendship. Toby and Tim are great pals and make a well matched pair of friendly combatants. Toby has a bit of extra energy but Tim communicates well if he gets too rough. If Tim wants to just chill thats OK and Toby goes off the the cat tree and works off the energy till it is window sleeping time. Toby Tomcat is one Great guy. Gotta Love Him!
Whee it is that big day!
The day all cats want if they do not have one and rejoice in celebration when they do!
Our GOT=CHA Day!
We black cats really have to shoot up the fireworks as many of our kind are not wanted. This of course is a huge mistake as we bring great good luck. Just look at the Tomcat home. A great clowder of kitties who needed rescue. Thanks so much Dad! You Da-Hooman!
So what happened! Well...
We got up early and had breakfast. Then Dad said he was going to make the treats I like best. They are the beef ones. I am so so on the chicken. He made a HUGE batch. After we played a bit me, Rumpy, Buddy, and Tim had all we could eat of those super fresh beef-treats.
I got some new toys and love them.
*Toby whispers: I told Dad to get Pom-Poms because my Fitz likes them too!"
Then we played!
Then we had our nighttime treats. Whew. What fun.
Then I came by to visit my Catster pals and guess what?
My pal Manytoes and his great family made me a Got-cha photo!
