It's time for a Scruffy update.
A Success Story
We've now had him 4 months and 1 week. We rescued him from our County Animal Shelter. They tell us he is eight years old. The only information we have on him is that his family had to move away and that he was at the shelter for 3 months before we adopted him. If you would really like to know more details about this little sweetheart who is absolutely nothing like his name, please scroll back to June 11th where I have much more information about his cute habits and personality.
The newest information is that we feel like we have had him for years! He is the best cat we have ever had -- and we've had six others before we had him. Excuse me if I now sound a little besotted with him, but I guess I am. He has a beautiful, sweet nature and just fits our family, (Moth and me,) perfectly.
As an older cat he does sleep quite a lot so most of these photos are of his sleeping places.
This is the foot rest of my recliner in the living room, where he spends most of the evening snuggled up against my legs, but if I get up to do something, he takes over the whole thing!
In the living room is where I usually watch TV or perhaps work on the lap top. If there is not enough room for both him and what I am doing, on the footrest of the recliner, he will sleep under the little wooden circular table next to my chair that is covered by a full length tablecloth. Poor boy, he's still half asleep here. I just lifted the cloth and snapped.
He also likes to sleep under things in the day time. If I am in the den working on the computer or reading, he sleeps under the little table I have next to my arm chair where I keep some of my painting things. So we put a donut there and of course he took to it right away.
During the day, if he is awake he will be in whichever room we are in. He follows us around like a little dog.
Sorry this is blurry, but it's hard to hold the camera and receive kisses at the same time! Yes, he gives kisses -- not just on your hand for something to taste, but hands, arms and legs and yes, even on the lips, which I know is not very sanitary. Moth doesn't know yet, but one day I just gave him an air kiss at his nose and I got a kiss in return and it wasn't just an accident because I have tried it several times since! What a sweetheart!
And here's the man himself, trying to look away from what he thinks will be the flash, (but I used a reading light instead.)
If I can I will try to get some shots of how MOTH and Scruffy get along. It won't be easy because neither of them like having their photo taken.
