There's a New Kid In Town!

Well, this has certainly been the Summer of Extreme Indulgence, the heating system (okay, we haven't actually got it yet), the China Hutch and now Arbogast.

We went to the local animal shelter (I'd been waiting on edge for more than a week for them to release him from the stray cat room. This morning when I checked he was still there and then in the afternoon they'd moved him to adoptable status. I had to race over so that I could grab him before some one else did. Since he is a stray he is a little bit feral and we are working on making him more social with humans.

Of course as proud new parents there are a few baby pictures to come. You can stop looking now if you want!

He hasn't quite figured about clay cat litter yet!

Yup, he's been fixed, but he's missing something besides his testicles.

....nonetheless, he's a real MANx.

The spousal unit doesn't like the name. (Go figure!) Last time we got an animal (Aimee) I had dozens of names, all male in mind. Now I wish I could remember some of them. As I recall they were things like Hezekiah and Raskolnikov. Maybe that makes Arbogast sound like a real wise choice.

That's the coolest kitten ever...except for our new one.

Of course, our own Kittens are always the coolest!
