This is King Louie (we think Louie is a "him" otherwise we'll call the cat Louise, I guess) . H found him in a dumpster at a nearby home site a week ago. He was feasting on all the scraps left by the builders, I guess, because he was not a scrawny cat. Slightly thin, but pretty darn healthy.
We took him on a temporary basis, but darn if he isn't a sweet cat! His purr is Mack Truck loud and he's a pretty decent cuddle-buddy. Not only that he's already used to doing "his business" outside - half the battle of a new pet!
Anyway - it was up to Erik if we kept him permanently or not as he had the most objections (well-founded ones, seriously - do we need one more creature in this house?). I guess Louie worked his kitty-magic, cause Erik decided last night that he could stay!
Now he's got to make peace with the dogs. Really, they just like him a little too much for his comfort.
This week while we've been enjoying getting to know him a bit, H found this funny video. The cat looks quite a bit like Louie:
I'll just let you know - Louie is NOT a mean kitty. :)
