These pictures were made not long after he came to our house and at the time I didn't know if he was a he or a she. Vet determined that and fixed it :-)
I love the little black dot down under his chin. Here's another "now" pictures:
He was really shy at first. He became the 'front porch kitty' as long as Halloween was alive, but since she's been gone he's moved to the back deck. He's also grown BIG - probably because he's such a hunter. He's always bringing me 'prizes' to the deck - and leaves them right at the door (or leaves parts of them after he's had his fill).
He's really a sweet cat and very loving - sometimes comes inside for a little while, but is always anxious to get back out. The two inside cats are NOT impressed when he's in. He's more than twice the size of either of them, but they hiss and complain when he's in, and he usually backs off from them.
At the vet last week for yearly shots, etc. and weighs 20 pounds. Obviously, he's a heavy rascal but loves to be picked up, sit in your lap or generally have attention. I really wish he and the inside kitties were friends.
