You talked me into it

Home at Last It’s kind of like having a dog. He follows me wherever I go. And he doesn’t pussy-foot around either, he goes THUMP THUMP THUMP.

He likes being groomed. He drops and flops over on his back and purrs and says “Do my belly!” He doesn’t meow much, but he hasn’t stopped purring since he got here.

ExploringThis picture is just to give you a sense of scale. A 25 pound cat is half as big as a guitar case.

Robin was at the Humane Society picking up his new cat at the same time, and he and his cat gave me and my cat a ride home. His cat never stopped meowing and mine was quiet as a mouse. A 000000………………………….

See that? He typed that all by himself! He’s helping me blog. He’s on my lap with his big fat paws on the keyboard. And he’s purring up a storm. And licking my hand.

I think he likes me. :)

    Oh grin. This is almost as good as having my own new kitty!

  • greencolander

    Hooray! Now I can spy on him!

  • Liz

    Congratulations Zoom! He’s a nice looking cat alright :) I look forward to hearing how you two get on. Have a great weekend!

    He made himself right at home. It looks like he’s going to be your new best friend. Congratulations!

  • I love him! He’s ginormous!

  • Deb

    A new nephew…I am so happy for you…can’t wait to meet him

    What’s his new name?

  • Congratulations, Zoom! When are you having the shower?

  • A shower! Brilliant idea Aggie. I might actually do it.

    Deb, he doesn’t have a new name yet. I’m waiting for a magnificent-enough name to occur to me. (But in the meantime I’m calling him Duncan Fraser – Duncan for short.)

    He’s such a weird and wonderful cat. He follows me everywhere and when we’re not totally burrowing into each other, he’s lying spread-eagled on his back at my feet, purring like a madman.

    What a great Saturday morning story. Congrats to both of you! BTW my cat says ‘good on you both’.

  • Deb

    How about the musical Cats as an inspiration

    Deuteronomy, a wise old cat

    Bustopher Jones is a large “twenty five pounder”, always clad in signature white spats. “The Cat about town”, he spends his time eating, eating and eating in one the many English pubs and clubs that he frequents:

    Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer, a fun-loving, frolicking team of pranksters …but then you would have to get him a partner

    Congratulations Zoom – he is absolutely adorable and looks as if he has made himself right at home.

    Happy birthday (adoption day) buddy. We’ve had some good times in the past year. Here are a few highlights:
    1. You missed me when I went out of town.
    2. Cuddling on the couch, and stuff that we’re trying to forget.
    3. Remember we discussed how you were going to meet The Dog.
    I hope our adventures continue in the next year but please NO MORE PEEING on me. And, oh yes, thanks for sharing your person with me. GC
