He looks nothing like a "Cubby". (she says with disdain)
He is a long - haired Siamese, making him a Himalayan ?
He is 12-13 years old .. or older.
He is so very beautiful, sweet, fragile and precious ... oh and he is Mine.
and Minettes ..
We have't decided on a new name, it won't be Cubby.
I was thinking something a bit Siamese cat-ish ..
Any ideas, throw them out there .
I have lots of photos so far but no idea how to get them out of my husbands cell phone.
I have to download my camera and do it the old fashioned way.
Why did I get an old cat ?
I had no intentions of getting another cat. I adore Minette .
I did think when we moved to our next house .. that she might like a puppy.
But then I made the mistake of looking at the animal shelter website and there he was.
What made me want him was the idea that he is old.
No one wants an old pet.
No one wants a pet that will nap more than anything and then die.
I don't ever want any of my pets to die.
But they do.
When Pup died, my heart broke and is still healing.
But I did comfort myself with the knowledge that that dog never knew a bad day.
He was always happy and he was loved so much .. we all should know the love that dog had.
And he made us happy and he loved us back. We were all content.
So on the website I saw this cat ... beautiful .. and then I saw how old he was.
His last days would be spent in a shelter ? As nice as it is and it is the nicest shelter I have ever seen .. He has no family to love him.
To hug him and talk to him.
Minette is ok so far with it all.
Curious but as long as I love her too.. she is good.
He is in her castoff cushy soft bean bag-like thing .. very comfy kitty.
When I go close to him to look at him or say something to him, I hear him purring.
He seems quite cozy right now. There are 2 litter boxes in the house anyway- Minette likes having 2 bathrooms.
So do I.
He is all hair and bones .. he has blue eyes and he squints and I wished my daughter was here because she would love him .. she loves long haired cats. She has one similar.
So I am now officially the cat lady in Chatham.
Nice to meet you.
His name is MERLIN .
