In an effort to waste precious bandwidth, I will soon put even more pictures of my cats here. If you want to see them, or you like wasting bandwidth, please come back soon.
Baby is probably my favorite cat. My parents gave him to
Kara and me when he was two weeks old. Apparently
his mother (Bandit) stopped taking care of him and
the rest of his litter when he was only a week old. The rest of the litter
died, but my father rescued him. For the next week, my parents took care of
him (and apparently did an excellent job), then Kara and I got the fun task
of bottle-feeding the little rugrat.
I'm not sure that Baby realizes that he's not human. For the most part, he
acts like a cat, but at least some of that he probably learned from
Doogie. It doesn't help any that he's polydactyl,
meaning he has an extra toe on each of his paws (the ones on his front paws
look disturbingly like opposable thumbs), and he's one of the more intelligent
cats I've had.
Baby is a black, fuzzy little beast. His features don't show up well on photographs, much less scans of photographs that have been saved as JPEGs. I had to adjust the next two pictures a bit to get any of his features to show up. The next two pictures are links to the unedited scans, if you'd like to see what I mean.
Baby was born on April 27, 1996 (give or take a day or two).
Doogie is really Kara's cat, but he likes me...
