My daughter's cat was named Mack by the rescue folks but she renamed him Edward after she adopted him. She's a big Twilight fan and later adopted another kitten and named him Jacob.

I was lucky to get him before he was hungry or traumatized. Instead of being 7-1/2 to 8-1/2 week old when he was rescued, he was closer to maybe 5 weeks. He is a little sunshine boy!

I can't resist taking shots every day. I'm not so quick on getting them up, but I will soon. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing. There are days when I really need to see more love in the world. I know it's there; but reminders always help.

but along with it comes an intense curiosity and more energy than should be legal. He makes me so happy I am beside myself. He is all good medicine.

in any position, and look comfortable!

What a cutie! I'm glad you rescued him, and I am sure that he is glad. And I know you are glad. May you have many years of love.

He is perfect for our family, such a little love, and I do look forward to many more years with him. Speaking of getting comfortable...right now he's napping on top of a bowl of rocks.

And don't even explain to me why you have a bowl of rocks to begin with.

20. Well, he moved as I was trying to snap that shot.

And he moves so much and so fast it's hard to catch him except when he crashes from exhaustion, as in the example below.






My neighbor gave me stones for meditation and I keep them in a crystal bowl on an end table. Mack is drawn to the crystals/stones and often takes a nap there.

He looks like he was playing with his scratchy toy, then just fell over exhausted!

I loves me some kitties!

and he doesn't mind belly smooches in the least! He's darned agreeable when it comes to affection, both giving and receiving.
