Meet Momo! (Sorry, were you expecting a greyhound? ) Since our cat Henry died almost two years ago, I've been desperately missing a big snuggly boy cat. I love my girls to death, but Olive cat's affection is given on her own terms, and Sweep is not one for snuggling, though she's the sweetest when she's upright (or leaning!). And the bonded pair of stray cats we feed are really more of the "dine and dash" type. So, I've been casually looking at shelters the past few months and Momo popped up this past week. We went to see him yesterday and learned that he had been reluctantly surrendered by his mom, a Japanese woman who had worked with the shelter for a long time, because she was moving back to Japan as a result of a very ugly divorce. Momo (Japanese for "peach") was clearly very nervous in the shelter environment, so he came home with us! He will be 10 on March 2, so he's right between Olive and Sweep. We've been going slowly with introductions, but Sweep has been such a good girl. Olive...um, well, Olive will come around in time. Momo is making himself right at home, and I'm so happy to have him here! So far I have learned he is a talker, a head booper, and a faucet drinker. He is also my first long-haired cat, so I gotta figure out some grooming stuff... Thanks for looking!
