Our New Addition...




Don't let the headline fool you! Any new addition to this family is FAR more likely to be feline than human. Here he is, folks. Moses the Cat. He's been wandering our neighborhood and stealing our cat food for a couple of weeks. We felt sorry for him and let him in...as you can see by this next shot, the rest is history! He immediately made himself at home. Very, very at home. His interests include lying on his back in very immodest (but cute) positions, terrorizing the other cats with his youthful charm, and going to any lengths to steal food, even if it means leaping over you as you eat and gracefully snatching it from your fork.
He and Chris bonded instantly. They both enjoy football games and lying on the couch. Moses will eat absolutely anything except pickles, and Chris has had fun testing just how extreme his eating habits are. So far, he's munched on green beans, raw carrots, chicken strips, pizza, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips, salsa...I could go on and on. So could he.
Lastly, he is gradually integrating himself into cat society around here by being such a cuddle bum that he's irresistible. I like to call this one "Bookends". He can't replace our beloved and dearly departed Mo, but- what am I saying? He is totally replacing Mo. He even looks like him. If we catch him sneaking fiery hot Cheetos, we'll know he's actually the same cat in a (slightly) different coat.

I knew immediately when I saw the title that you had a new cat - can't fool me! ;o) He's extremely handsome, even if he is long-haired. ;o)

Did Mo die? I'm confused.

Yes, Mo died. Over two years ago, in fact. He had cellular cancer. It was tragic.
