It seems this is the season for additions to the family. Tam and Roberta adopted a kitty that turned out to not have a home as they had thought so they gave him one and Himself found a lost kitty at work on Tuesday. He's also a yellow tom cat, much like Roberta and Tam's Huck, and is one of the sweetest cats I've had the pleasure to get to know. Someone dumped him--he was neutered and he'd found a good nest, but with the temps dropping to single digits, food and water were going to become problematic. One of Himself's co-workers snagged him for us about 8:00 Tuesday night and he's now living in the middle bedroom.
His bill of health was not quite as we'd hoped since he's tested FIV positive, but the our vet, as well as some others, say that he should integrate in with our Triad of Terror without much of a risk of transmission (if they get into a knock-down/drag-out then it's possible). We're willing to give it a shot as long as our trio cooperate since I don't think Bob has a mean bone in his body. He was a champ at the vet (no aggression whatsoever) and just in regular play, no claws (and there are claws) are evident. His favorite game so far is to just fall over on his side and let me pet him while he goes around in circles like a breakdancer.
Wish us luck!!
