|Here you can see his eyes!|
Since I broke my own rule to introduce all of my readers to Sugar, my former feline companion who passed on about six weeks ago, I feel that I should show you her successor: Gorgonzola! (Zola for short.)
|Zola, at about 5 years, on a summer afternoon|
Since we brought him home, he has decided that he likes Eric too, and has purred at both of us, in between bouts of wandering around, exploring his new home.
|Awake, but distracted by the camera flash.|
EDIT: (2/4/2018) I was so wrong about Zola not being a jumper; he can move to the top of the 6 1/2 foot bookcase with ease from the dining room windowsill. But now, at age 5 or thereabouts, he doesn't feel obliged to do that often. He does greet us daily with purring, prefers to hang out with one or both of us, and carries himself with a high, curved, proud tail like the well-loved cat he now understands he is. I've attached a more recent photograph of him also.
