There's a New Man (Cat) in Town
Hi, everyone! Hope you're having a good weekend!
I'd like to introduce you to the newest addition to our family!
Most of you know that about 2 months ago we lost our sweet cat Cole. I wasn't even thinking of getting another cat when Keith texted me a pic of this little guy!
Unbeknownst to me, he had gone to Petsmart on his lunch hour and they had a pet rescue organization there with kitties. He was immediately smitten with one 10 month old kitten and texted me pics with 'what do you think?' Well, how could I say no to that little face? So a couple of days later, we brought him home!
(I think the term for that is 'softies'-ha!)
Look at this next picture and see if you notice anything unusual...
He doesn't have a tail!
Apparently his breed is American Bobtail, and they don't have tails...which looks kinda weird! What's also funny is that he looks a lot like our other cat, Bob, before her ears 'fell'. Now we have 2 little 'misfits'! This is Bob...
(who many of you may remember from this post!)
On the way to pick him up we kept going over names and still hadn't decided on one. (Get this: the name on his cage was 'Lil Bob'!! We certainly couldn't have 2 'Bobs'!)
We drove there in the rain, and right when we got there the sun came out and we saw this...
"Let's call him Rainbow" I said jokingly and Keith said "Well, how about just Bo?" And we both liked it and thought it fit him, so that's his name! It was like a sign :)
As you can see he's VERY well fed now, and has made himself quite at home.
I'll admit that it's been a bit of an adjustment...we're used to older, calmer cats, and Bo is ALL kitten! He has so much energy, and sometimes he's a handful, but overall he's a little sweetie.
(Although I don't think Bob is a big fan, yet. Bo is infatuated with her and follows her around like a little shadow!)
Of course I still miss Cole, and I always will, but now there's a new little guy around to make us smile.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
