    Hello Mr. Oates



    He arrived yesterday courtesy of a local animal shelter where he ended up through no fault of his own - marriage breakup and collateral damage. He's orange and white with copper eyes.
    He's a bit freaked out with the whole house to explore but he's quite a cuddle bug so he'll make out OK in the long run.
    A little younger than I would have wanted, but otherwise checked most of the boxes for us. He's friendly and likes kids so the grandchildren won't scare him when they come. Affectionate and playful.
    His name was Oats but we added an "e" so he's now either a blue eyed soul singer or the star of a Sam Peckinpah movie.
    He's working hard on my wife as she always has to be convinced to get another cat after the death of an old one. As for me - he had me at "meow."

    looking good glad you have some warmth back in your smile and hello Mr. Oates
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I'm not much of a cat lover (runs for cover); but he's a good looking fellow

    Cute Kitty Ray, good for both you and him on adopting the little guy. Animals in one's life are a great blessing!
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    Looks like a keeper.
    I see he's already commandeered the middle of the bed.
