Okay, so I lost my status as newest, *youngest* guy yesterday. I'm still not sure how I feel about that but time will tell.
How it happened...I was laying around the house with Bailey and Darius...like I always do. Mom and Dad had gone out earlier and taken the carrier with them but ~*big sigh of relief*~ none of us were in it! I shoulda known something was afoot but just didn't think about it. Tummy was full, sun was pouring in the window, chair was super comfortable...you know how it is.
Anyway, I hear the garage door opening & the car pulling it - Darius and I beat it to the back door to greet them like we always do and they still have the carrier with them! And it has an occupant. O.O
And Mom and Dad are grinning sheepishly...never a good sign!
Anyway, they place the carrier on the floor and open the gate...and out walks the skinniest kitty I've ever seen! Sure, he's grey, and sure, he's cute, but man! He looks like he's on his last legs, that boy! Turns out, according to Mom, he was.
His name is Milo (it was Jake before Mom renamed him...another story for another time) and he is 3 years old! Hah! I'm 5! Hah! I rule! Mom saw him online and the banner said he was going to be euthanized in 4 hours! I don't know what that word means but it sounds pretty dire by the look on Mom's face.
Anyway, they called the place where he was being held and put a 'stay of execution' on him - then drove to New Jersey to pick him up.
So I have another brother...that makes four of us again. This kid seems to be okay...pretty quiet and staying out of all *my* favorite places so no worries yet. I will add pictures and video once there is some, so stay tuned.

Congrats on having a new baby brother:) Im sure he will be happy having such a handsome big brother to look up to:) Love,Tate
Thank you for your support & the nice comment, Tate. We are all making sure he knows (our) house rules right now...he's trying to add some of his own, but we'll try to compromise. ~*wink*~
I will get after Mom to get a page for him too & we'll do pictures. He sees the vet on Thursday...Bwaahaahaa, I don't! But we'll see how he is & what he weighs then.
