Mocha the cat has joined my family; here are first pictures

Mocha arrived yesterday on the 3:30 plane. He's had a name change -- the shelter called him "Cotton," which didn't seem to fit at all. He is sweet, loving, and oh, so beautiful. I am very happy with my choice. Here are the first pictures.

Those polydactyl toes -- I have a Hemingway cat!

Nothing like being a proud new mama! He is listed on the information form as a "lilac point Siamese." However, I see evidence of other kitties in the woodpile. He has the tabby "M" on his forehead and medium-length fur. So glad he has the Siamese blue eyes, though.

He's super friendly and very calm. And, in spite of all that fur, he only weighs 8 pounds! I'm sure we'll add a couple of pounds to that, but don't want to overfeed him, either. Right now, though, he's pretty bony under the fur coat.

He doesn't meow much; is more apt to give you a little "brrrr" -- Is that called a "chirp" in cats? I don't know, but if I make that sound, he makes it back at me, and it seems to be one way to get him out from under the bed.

Okay, back to work--Glad I write about cats. Gives me a good excuse to gush a bit. Just had to introduce him to you folks.

My son hurt his back, and he asked me to come over and help him with his truck. My hands and arms are much slimmer than his, and I helped put on the airbags and hock up the airlines up to the engine compartment, and I was able to play with his mocha cat. Almost your size and I love the paws; they are big. I love the features or markings on his head. He trained to walk on a leash outside; it's too valuable of a cat to let loose on his own to wander the yard. Enjoy your cat!

Thanks for the reminder -- I have to order a kitty vest. Yes, he will learn to walk on a leash. He's so sweet...He's in here with me, on the bed in the sun by the window. Ideal place for a kitty.

I love animals, period, but not necessarily snakes. I take care of my mother, who is 86; we have five small dogs and three cats. I raise peacocks, turkeys, chickens, and any wild animal needs food. I have to get back to work, fix the problem I caused myself, and get back rolling on my assignments. Have a good day!

Oh, send salutations to your mother for me. I will be 84 in July.

You have a regular farm! Also, how often it seems we have to fix a problem we cause ourselves. My sympathies.

A lovely looking cat, Fran. Happy for the both of you.

I think so too, Phil, and I believe both of us are happy too. I can't vouch for Mocha, but he seems pretty content.

Probably loves his new name :-)

Well, he's still getting used to it.

That is a beautiful looking addition to the family there Fran, and he seems to be making himself at home in double quick time, which as I am sure you know is not always the case with most cats!

We had a few tabbies and some siamese cats whilst growing up on the ranch but this is the first time that I have actually seen what looks like a mix and he is beautiful!

He has certainly found a fantastic home there with you...

He's a very welcome addition. He is a very calm cat, though he is a bit cautious. However, he's so friendly and makes up to strangers right away. I am looking forward to a happy future with him.

I believe that most cats are a bit cautious when they first enter new surroundings Fran, but I'm happy to hear that he is a friendly feline!

And I am sure that your future with him will be very happy!

Nice addition! Now you have a new assistant to help you with your writing!

Ah, yes, and he likes to lap-sit. He's already helped me type a few letters.

Wow, my son has a mocha cat. And she is beautiful and getting bigger. Congrats on getting him.

I sure do like this one...happy I got him.
