Meet Chester Copperpot, also known as "Copper". Thanks to Uncle Mike, who doesn't get his cats spayed quickly enough, we have a new family member. With our dwindling kitty population ("White Cat" turns 15 this summer), we have to train up the new generation of mice catchers. We go through 100+ lbs of grain per week around here... without kitties, we would have a serious rodent problem!
Copper is quite the mess. He flips from being a bundle of spastic action to a purring, exhausted baby. The girls are in love, the boys are entranced, and I am laughing out loud. He even enjoys a good tea party. Sounds like kitty success.
