our newest
family member,
new kitten,
b e a r.

his name was
inspired by
his enormous
polydactyl paws
his love of
turning over
garbage cans.

like his
he too
comes from
a port town
polydactyl cat's
was valued by sailors
because they
could climb the ropes
after rodents,
it is less prized
by me
he has
to scale
the kitty fence
we built
to keep him
out of
spot's territory.
i am already
on the new
and improved
so glad we
an architect
in the house.

hello bear, what a handsome little fellow you are!

eshu said...

i adore him

rather than cramping up his flickr spot i figured i would tell you here that my neighbor's cat is somewhat like Bear.

her name is Loki, she's white, pretty and has opposable thumbs.

the first time she met Henry she punched him in the face!
