We weren't going to let him in, but he came around the front of the house and sat on the front porch and seduced me with those eyes. We tried to find his owner, but no one spoke up. Tried to place him but everyone we know already has kitties and could not take a new one. We decided to keep him, but with 6 others already and a small living space, the dynamics just didn't work. (he was a HUGE mama's boy and did not like me giving my attention to the others...that combined with being huge and a bit of a bully, and it was rough for a while). Although I personally know the folks at the local shelter, I just couldn't get myself to bring him there. I posted online again looking for a possible owner, and found someone who was not his original, but who fell in love with him and took him home to cherish!
He's been in his new home since the summer and I still miss him, but know it was the best for us all.
Thanks for looking!
