Yes, Bert’s name is now Simon, and it’s such a natural for him that I took to it right away and forgot he was called Bert for quite some time! I have a few of my favorites here along with a few from his adopter, Christy, who has been sharing his photos on my Facebook page and sending me updates. Above he looks soft and sweet and ready for petting, which he was—I’m so glad he got to like it because everyone is going to want to touch such a beautiful cat.
Simon tended to blend in with things in the bathroom and I finally got a photo of him in the tub looking very handsome.
He took to the scratcher and loved to stretch his back while digging into the strip of jute carpet backing I have at the top, and always made sure it was convenient for me to scratch his back with he stretched.
While Ernie really liked the cat track that was just a track, Simon liked the one with the scratcher in the center, and had developed a habit of sitting purr-fectly centered there. I finally got him to look up at me.
He never did get what I enjoyed about being totally covered with water.
We’re using this photo as our Sunday Selfie this week!

Now these photos are Simon in his new home! First, he’s soaking up the affection. He transitioned right to his new person without any hesitation.
Piper, the resident kitty, comes over to see what’s happening. Piper has been curious and friendly, but both are being cautious.
Piper is still the lord of the manor, but Simon is definitely finding his place there.

Clean Up This Snow, 2012
Mimi is fine with the collar, and even the leash is okay.
But cold, wet paws are not part of the bargain. She did take one step out of the clear spot on the big rock, then got back up on the step.
“You need to get out there and clean up that snow,” she looked up at me and said.
This from the kitty who used to trot all over the neighborhood in all sorts of weather.
