As promised, photo of our new cat.

He came pre-named as "Boy," and we'll probably continue to use it as he will come when called. But, he's sort of by default being called "Buddy" since he is such a lover cat.

I can tell he's still a little uncertain- there's been a lot of change for the poor cuddly dear, but he warmed up to both of us pretty quickly- sat in my lap so long my leg went numb and then half-sat on J.'s arm until that went numb!

He is a 9-year-old almost-senior cat, but they need love too! When his original owners died, he was inherited by some friends of mine who already had 4 cats in a townhouse, and the other boy cats were giving Boy a hard time. We're hoping he'll be happy being an only cat and King of the House with our family. :)

Two more photos of him (including one where you can see the "bullseye" on his side a bit better) here.

Oh - what a sweet orange boy. He is SO orange! I love it.

Our Piggy is 9, and just as active as she was when she was a baby. That is to say, she still sleeps about 20 hours a day, but she has always done that.

FWIW, he got called "Buddy" a lot here, as well as Bubba. He's pretty easygoing about it all.

I'm so happy he's settling in!!

Oh my gosh, when I saw his picture I just wanted to coo "Oh honey, it's okay" at him and have him rub me/me pet him. He looks so sweet!

Congrats on the new addition! He is a handsome guy! Look at that face!! My friends named their new cat Buddy. They adopted him from my rescue group. All 3 of my parents cats are over 10 years old now, but except for the oldest one they are all quite active. They oldest is 15/16ish and is starting to slow down. She has a skin condition and the medicine she has to take for it weakens her heart. But my mother would rather she have a slightly shorter life that was comfortable than one that's longer and miserable. And I agree with that.
