A picture of my son, Ted, and his daughter, Hazel (17 months old). They live in Seattle, WA, USA, which is "geek heaven".
After I got home from the CVA meeting in late October, I decided to get some cats. My two elderly cats died during the summer. I decided to adopt some younger cats, because the loss of six cats in six years was just too hard. So I got three cats from Caring for Creatures, a local no-kill animal shelter. I will add pictures to this page soon, but they are still adjusting to their new home.
Apollo: He is an altered male about 5 years old. A large (20 lbs or 9 kg), grey tabby -- no orange in his coloring. As a boss-cat, he had not been easy to place in a new home. Since my home was "cat free", I had no problem. With Apollo I got two other cats from the same shelter room -- cats that had a "working relationship" with Apollo.
Troy: She is a neutered female about 2½ years old. She is a typical Russian silver gray (about 10 lbs or 4.5 kg); she is smoke grey, with very faint, residual markings.
Danson: He was born at Caring for Creatures 1½ years ago. He is an altered male, black and white coloring -- sort of like a panda. He has a bobtail and very soft, thick fur. That makes him a Japanese bobtail cat. About 12 lbs or 5.5 kg. A lot of kitten personality is left -- always eager for a game of chase, which is not a lot of fun for me at 5:00 AM.
