Introducing ..... ZAK!
About a month ago, this delightful creature entered our lives. Zak had to be rehomed because his owner felt that he was interfering with her new born baby. When he came to us, he was very underweight and had conjunctivitis. The vet informed us he had been malnourished and that he had ear mites, fleas and cat flu. He was 13 weeks old then and the vet told us his growth had been stunted because of not being fed properly. Kate and I, ever the saps for some poor kitty sob-story were happy to have him, though, as my Dad pointed out, Zak probably got the better end of the deal as the baby may not get off as lightly as Zakky did. He is the naughtiest and bravest of all our cats. He charged straight for Noodle the Ninja and even challenged Queen Mischa. Within a day he had made friends with Lucifer. By the end of the week, he was playing with Tinkie and now Noodle has warmed to him too. Mischa, of course, being head of the household, is reserving judgement until he has grown up enough as to not become annoying to her. He's a real sweetie and fits in well with the rest of the nutcases (humans included) that reside in La Casa Della Lesbica.

  3. He is so cute! And such beautiful markings on his side! I have a bit of a soft spot for tabbys though, especially when they come with sob stories. He most definately got the better end of the deal getting to live with you guys. :)
