6. we don't know why he is that big, KitchenWitch
he was a seven pound half-grown kitty when Tom and I adopted him; he was a stray with a leg dislocated so bad bone was showing at the joint. He wore a cast for weeks; all I remember is Tom and I went on a vacation to England for a couple weeks and when we returned he had freaking blown up - I accused my coworker who took care of Skittles of feeding him protein shakes. :o

10. He is gorgeous!
And it looks to me as though he could also kick some serious ass!

I love big black kitties!

Thanks for showing us your namesake...

12. Hi Skittles. I also love big black cats, here is mine
Clark, showing the Vampire Fang of Death



Who let this cat out of the bag?


Clark is not as big as your Skittles, may he bask in his shiny blackness, but he is working on it.
