And obviously a most fortunate fellow to have found such a loving home with you!

Certainly looks to be doing great now.

We splurged and replaced all the windows in our house this week. Titus and Harry knew who the bay window was for. Maybe they'll stay off the kitchen table for a while - but, no, who do I think I'm kidding?

On those occasions when kitty cannot be found there are two time-tested strategies -

a) put out an empty cat-sized box

b) run the electric can opener

AND he is extremely courteous and well mannered.

He could see you wished to get a shot of the fahrrad and was content to sit off to the side.

You two are most fortunate to have each other.

Not mine (we have 3 of our own), but I'm cat sitting next door neighbor's during their 3 weeks in Europe. This is Gizmo, abandoned a few years ago by renters, neighbors took him in. Here is Gizmo showing his notches in the ear from fights and giving my knee headbutts.

When she’s not on ninja missions, Sophie can be found kicking back pretty hard.

Thanks for pointing that out. It looks as though she may have ninja’d some of the drivetrain as well. Though she left the quill pedals I see. Makes sense too, being that they really do provide a good head scratching outpost for such an accomplished cat after an arduous mission.
