Boris looks like he is in charge and plotting!

Sean Jeating said...

The most important question has not been asked, yet. How did Ted welcome the family's youngest member?

Nevin said...

I can tell he is suspicious of everything and everyone for the moment... He needs time to adjust....

I remember when we first got our sweet little furry friend, she didn't come out from her hiding place for 6 whole months!!! I am not kidding... :)

We have a slightly mixed relationship with brushes. One loves it the other.....

Claudia said...

Great name. Very handsome, and fluffy. I wish I could pat him...

Bryan said...

Boris doesn't have a problem falling into water dishes?

Oh, sorry, wrong Boris.

Rather magnificent whiskers on the lad.

Yes, brushes aren't for every cat.

He almost certainly is Cherie. He may be as evil as Ted!

Ted welcomed him with open claws Sean! Let's say that he gave him the hairy eyeball. But then Boris reciprocated vocally!

He seems to have taken to the house well, despite being 11 and living with a family for 9 years

There is a mixed relationshipe here too. Robyn loves it but Ted will attack the brush

He is a really handsome fellow Claudia We have fallen in love with him!

He's a magnificent looking beast, even if we say so ourselves Bryan!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Mar he is a handsome fellow

Alison said...

He's certainly a Boris, and gorgeous. Sending him a big hug and kiss. Hopefully the yowling will stop soon in your household!

We have been visiting the Cat Protection League lately in the hope of finding a cat that would like to live with 2 rambunctious dogs...

jams o donnell said...

I hope you find one Alison. I used to enjoy seeing the not wife's family doberman being utterly dominated by the cats... great fun!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

He is very pretty.

beakerkin said...

This is some poor imitation of Ted.

It is sad that a family had a cat for so long and had to give him up.

jams o donnell said...

He does not quite have the aptitude for evil I think Beakerkin. It was sad. When the husband came over with him he was in tears.

Rahel said...

Oh, what a beauty! Is he a Maine Coon, or at least partly a Maine Coon?

My fingers itch to skritch that gorgeous fur!

jams o donnell said...

We understand that he is part Maine Coon. He certainly has fur to die for!

Anya said...

Hi Boris

I love it :)
You are a BEAUTY =^.^=

jams o donnell said...

Thanks Anya. Kareltje is a beauty too!

what a FABULOUS GINGER TIGGA HE IS. Oh Shaunie he's gorgeous. Really beautiful. I love him may I have him please?? Our beloved Henry has left us Shaun. But we know he's alive and well and living somewhere near by. He is gorgeous and I hope he treats the others with the reverence they deserve.

jams o donnell said...

I'm sorry to hear about Henry, S. He had a great life with you. Perhaps he's somewhere playing with the chunnering dog!

The not wife would amputate my genitals if I were to tade him so the answer to teh question if you can hanve him is NO!!!
