Almost Wordless: My Romeo

romeo

This little critter is my furry-sweet love-bug. His name is Quaker. We named him that because we found him at the shelter the week of Thanksgiving last year.

Aside from the big hunk of burning love that I sleep beside each night (the one I married nearly 16 years ago) he's my favorite man. Ok, mancat.

I had no idea how good of a cat he would turn out to be. He's the goodest kitty. A very piously sweet fur baby - which suits his religious little name well. He even lets me rub his overly fuzzy belly.

I figured I would throw him a token post on his anniversary-of-adoption month. It was a year ago next week that he became part of our crazy little family.

We love you Quaker.

He's a very handsome kitty!

And by the way, I like the comment you made about "thinking through your fingers." My fingers do a lot of my thinking for me.

What a beautiful kitty! Make me want one! I grew up with them and we have had a few in our marriage...but we have a dog, and leather furniture....hhmmm.

OMG, what a sweet little face he has! I've always been a huge believer in bringing animals home from the pound. When there are so many pets looking for homes, I find it difficult to consider buying one from a breeder. It's so much more meaningful this way.

Fate definitely led Quaker to your family. Our beloved cat, Shadow, was a pound cat. After he passed away, we rescued a schnauzer named Frasier out of a neglectful home. It's such a joy to see another animal so loved and so welcome in his new family.

Happy anniversary, Quaker. Here's to many more.

Oh, that cat. If only he would let me squeeze him. Oh, the squeezing I could do to that cat. Maybe that's why he is anti-Sara. He senses my Elmyra tendencies. (Do you remember her? From the cartoon back in the 90s? She was obsessed with cats and they hated her? That's mine and Quaker's relationship.)

Happy WW! Have you ever seen Hummingbird Babies?

He has such a beautiful and expressive face. So sweet! Happy WW!

The Bumbles said...

How'd you get him to sit still and cooperate for that shot? My kitties are always on the move or sleeping so I'll never be able to capture such a pensive look.

Our WW is here...
