I just arrived back from Idaho after spending a wonderful Christmas with my two best friends, pdx42 and _sister_madly_. I should be in bed right now since I'm exhausted, but I wound up playing with the Live Journal Scrapbook instead. There are no pics of pdx42 and _sister_madly_ as I haven't asked if I can post them, but I didn't think they would mind me posting pictures of _sister_madly_'s darling cat, Tweak.
Background: for the first 6 months of his life, Tweak was kept in a cat carrier with his sister. His sister had feline leukemia and the owner just assumed that Tweak had it, too. After she gave up Tweak, he tested negative but had to be kept in solitary confinement for another 6 months to ensure that he really didn't have it. He was going to the House of Dreams no-kill cat shelter and they couldn't take a chance with the health of their other cats.
I fell in love with Tweak when I met him and _sister_madly_ adopted him. Because of his strange upbringing, he's a bit of a weird cat. He doesn't cuddle, but he constantly asks for affection (and runs away when he gets it.) He'll come over and drop a toy near you in hopes that you'll play with him, but he can be pretty shy about it. He's extremely high energy, has a weak stomach, and loves to play.
'Nuff of that. On with the pics!
Is someone coming to see me?
