I was just catching up and realized I'd forgotten to say anything to Spooky about that pic - it's FABULOUS! While Mika certainly looks very mischievous - Socks and Boo are TOO CUTE!!!
And Louise - go figure, but Gary didn't like cats either! He was truly a cat-hater until sometime this Spring. !!! And even then he was just lukewarm. It really wasn't until we rescued Lazlo - and that first few hours inside, when Lazlo just BURIED himself into Gary's arm and loved him so much - his heart just melted.
[We'd been caring for a stray for 9 - 10 months so it wouldn't raid the garbage, when a litter of kittens turned up in the yard - and that's what brought me to the cat site. We'd been caring for them (outside) for about a month when the whole family disappeared except for Laz. That's how he came inside. Even Gary felt bad about the poor baby outside crying!]
And yes - now Gary is the proud daddy of three! And he is the primary care giver to all the outside cats (except Booger - she's "mine.") With the cat we dropped off last night, that makes 17 that he's trapped and we've had spayed/neutered since June.
...He owed a LOT of apologies to people (friends who own cats), and started dialing them all to profer those apologies.... Some were so shocked that we have one cat, let alone three - that they still just don't really quite believe it. !
