you to Naomi and all of the
wonderful volunteers at Animals Can't Talk.
After the passing of 2 of our senior pets
over the past year and a half, I realized the
house seemed quite empty. Over the past few
months we decided we were ready to
add to the family again.
looked at a few cats on
petfinders and various Petsmart locations.
When we went out on Saturday,
4/30/2010, I had no intentions of coming
home just yet with a cat. After telling one of
the volunteers what we were looking for,
she introduced me to Handsome.
While he was a bit nervous there was
a connection and I couldn't go home
with out him. It has been just 2 days
and he is settling in nicely. After the first
couple of hours, he noticed there
were other beings outside and one of
his favorite spots is the window.
Elsie (our other cat) are getting
along okay. Elsie is a bit standoffish at
times but I think they will become friends
in time. As for Max, our Lhasa Apso,
tonight they actually spent the evening in
the same room. Handsome has been
renamed Harley. While he is a gorgeous
cat, he does have a bit of an attitude.
He likes to play rough and will bite gently
when you rub his belly in the wrong spot.
just seemed to suit him...
and I think he likes his new name.
He speaks to us when we walk
in and was even following me
around the house the first day.
I look forward to many, many years
with Harley and will keep you posted
on how he is doing. I have attached
a couple of photos. He was
watching the birds outside.
