Meet Shadow! He's our newest family member. We adopted him from our county humane society the second week in August.
We had been a 2 cat home for 15 years, when 4 years ago both our cats died within 4 months of each other. (Teppe and Riley were our babies before we had babies!) We purchased Frito 4 years ago on Halloween and thought we could live with just one cat. Frito also thought it was a good idea to have just one cat!
Do you see the size of those paws in the above picture - we are thinking he might turn out to be a panther!
Shadow has good prim taste - sleeping in a wooden bowl.
Frito did not think much of having to share his bed in the dry sink or his pink princess blankie! There was a lot of hissing, swatting and growling at first.
Now it's a different story, they seem to be the best of friends. Frito has even been giving Shadow baths.
We really think that Frito only tolerates him because now there is an extra food dish in the house! Talk about spoiled cats, they have one dish on the main level of the house and one in the kids' upstairs bathroom.
Shadow has been a great new helper - he thinks basket reed is a perfect bed. He also thinks it's lots of fun to get all tangled up in the reed and run around the house dragging it all with him.
He loves to drink condensation from any bottle left out!
You quickly forget how active a kitten can be - when all you have is a lazy, fat orange cat. Shadow was the perfect name - he is so hard to see and likes to hide and ambush us when we are least expecting it.
