New Cat

After the hike at Ft Ord the dogs and I went to a local rescue group Town Cats . It was overwhelming. Cats were everywhere. There must have been at least 100 to chose from. It is a no kill shelter that pulls cats from local kill shelters as well as taking turn ins from owners.


I was looking for a middle age male to go along with my female cat Miss Cleo. After spending an hour looking at the cats-and getting confused by so many I had my choice narrowed down to three cats. We brought all three cats into the office and one by one I introduced each dog. The cat that was bothered the least- the lucky one- was a handsome grey boy Genki. He had been at the shelter/rescue group for 1 1/2 yrs. So home he went with a new name Genghis as in Genghis Khan.



After living with about 100 cats, a few dogs were nothing. Very little seems to faze him.

Oh, he is handsome. I do love grey or blue. How does Cleo like him?

She was hysterical when she first met him. Then she saw his food bowl filled with food. She is on a bit of a diet. She forgot him and dove into his food. All is forgiven if he can keep bringing the food.

What a gorgeous Russian Blue boy. He reminds of a cat I had many years ago, Lani. I hope you, Cleo and the dogs enjoy him :)
