Arrival Story: I was walking our dog and heard a pitiful "Meeewwwww" from underneath a bush. I bent down to see and this kitten lept in to my arms. He was stinky and dirty and squinting. We walked all over the neighborhood trying to find his "owners" and no one claimed him. Our cat Bert didn't want him in the house so we kept George in the bathroom for a few days, until we could find him a new home. Heh! That was 6 years ago.
Bio: George has his own last name - - we had 1,000 names for him and none seemed right until he responded to "George". His last name comes from a late night cable surfing adventure when we landed upon "Max Dugan Returns". He's the sweetest and nicest cat, he almost always plays with claws retracted. He's lovely. And metabolically challenged.
