First cat of my own ever. Just got him last night. I'm pretty much in love with this little guy. He seems to really enjoy batting beer bottle caps around and playing in 12pack boxes, so I think this is gonna work out.

I think he's gonna turn me into a lamester though. I'm skipping Dopapod tonight so I can stay home and play with him. Maybe I'll play the Wormtown set for him.

Thanks everybody! He is a little sweety. I've been living by myself for about 8 months now, and it's really nice to have another mammal to hang with. He crawls all over me and purrs like a machine gun everytime I come home. I could do without the wanting to play razor kitty claws at 3 am but he's cute enough to get away with it.

Thanks Sums :) I was actually going to name him after Douglas, I think he kind of looks like a Douglas. But I've got aspirations for him. He'll one day be president of the Galaxy! :v:

cats can get away with so much because of the cuteness factor. my morning usually goes like this:

4:00 - 5:30am: Tiger wakes me up to go outside
6:00 - 6:30am: Carlos starts in with his little high-pitched cry (lawrence is sweet enough to call it his "song") but there is no way he's going out while it's still dark out so he goes in the "cat room"
7:00 - 7:30am: Floyd comes into our room and starts knocking shit off the dressers. this is usually when i get up....

luna is my only good cat. she never wakes us up!

Floyd!
Best cat I ever owned was named Floyd. Fluffy Floyd. :rose:
Didn't matter if it was raining, snowing, sleeting, hailing or if there was 3 feet of snow on the ground so he had to dig holes to pee.
That cat HATED the litter box and would only use it when he was left inside too long. :clapping:
I sure do miss that boy. :heart:

our floyd was a stray that wandered into the back yard a year and a half ago. we thought he was a she so started calling him "pretty". once we got close enough to see he was a boy, the husband named him "pretty boy floyd". he is most likely a norwegian forest cat, although we thought he was a maine coon for the longest time. but they are closely related. he is a fluffy floyd too :)

Congrats! :jump:

Babies are so fun! My last kitten is about to turn 13 so it's been a long time! I'd love to get another baby but I also have a 17 year old that I promised no more cats while she is still alive. She hates all other animals :lol:

awwww he's beautiful! congratulations. and yeah, great name :)

so has he discovered the joys of playing in your beard yet? our cats (and indeed, most animals) love snuggling up to Jason's.

the great thing about cats is you can leave them without compunction when you need a night out...but they're so cute that oftentimes you just don't want to. enjoy your new furry companion, may Zaphod bring years and years of light and happiness to your home :jump:

Thanks thug! Yeah he's all up in my beard. He grooms it.

I'm bringing him to the vets on wednesday for his first check-up. Little nervous about the $$. Anyone know what I can expect to pay for his first round of shots and what have you?

not sure about the shots but make sure you get him used to having their feet handled and claws cut. you'll want a pair of clippers for cats.

he is handsome
reminds me of my old rescue kitty, barney :heart:
barney liked to eat salad, unfortunately not the healthy kind :undecided:
:funny1:
i made him a baby book and made visitors to my house sign it and inked paw prints into it and everything :lol:
it was a housewarming present during one of these visits that was a casualty, as i discovered his appetite for green, and later discovered it extended from still growing greens to dried greens...the bastard :lol: :plain: :lol:

Thanks guys! He's lucky he's so damn cute. He can be a spunky terror sometimes. He's taken to stalking my brother and punching him (claws in) when he's not paying attention.

Zaphod is into greens too! Both growing and dried. He's pretty careful though. He just likes being around plants mostly, and just takes little tastes now and again.
