This is my cream level mitted ragdoll – Morgan. We rescued him from the North Pinellas Humane Society in Clearwater, Florida. He was six years outdated once we discovered him. Morgan was a wonderful 20+ pound, declawed behemoth of a male cat. According to the beautiful individuals on the Humane Society, Morgan’s proprietor had handed away and so he was subsequently surrendered by a member of the family of the proprietor.

Hunting for an Ugly Cat

I had introduced my daughter to the Humane Society to search for, and rescue “an ugly cat” as a result of (as everyone knows) fairly cats will all the time discover properties. I used to be mentioning some actually pleasant, but homely cats to my daughter when she plaintively referred to as me over as a result of Morgan had climbed over the opposite animals within the cat habitat to power himself onto her lap. My daughter saved saying “But Mom, he’s really scared!” as I used to be reiterating to her that the large cat in her lap was too fairly. Well, he WAS actually scared – though all that massive cat needed to do was sit on high of any cat and he would have been high-quality.

In the tip, I noticed that this large, furry goofball had chosen us (and who was I to argue with him?) and he got here residence. Once he had settled in, it turned obvious to us that our residence should have been a “step-down” in comparison with Morgan’s former residence. He refused to stroll on our carpeting for the primary 2 weeks (pardon me, your majesty!), however he adjusted when he realized that as a substitute of only one proprietor as earlier than, he now had 3 human servants to fulfill his calls for. About six months later, I entered Morgan within the Humane Society’s annual calendar contest. Morgan ended up as “Mr. January” and had his pictures professionally taken for us.

Calendar Model

A couple of months later, we went to the humane society to the “problem” cat room to undertake a companion for Morgan. I swore THIS TIME, no lovely “Mr. January” candidates. We discovered Toby, who had been returned 3 instances and I made a decision that he wanted us.

Toby had a “little” OCD challenge. He turned our head of safety as he went from door to door and window to window all day lengthy after which sprayed all of them to maintain different cats out. It took 9 LONG months, however between our love and Morgan’s agency paws of tutelage, Toby lastly settled in. Morgan took his position as alpha cat very significantly. Anytime that Toby began appearing manic, Morgan was there to set him straight. It was a partnership made in heaven.

Toby – Rescue Cat #2

Toby developed into a beautiful cat and Morgan had an in depth bosom-buddy. One of their favourite video games was to chase one another round the home, culminating with one (or each) leaping as much as the again of our recliner. You would know after they achieved “endgame” whenever you would hear somebody shout in horror because the 20 pound furry freight practice got here barreling at whoever had the misfortune to be sitting in that chair.

The final photograph in my e mail reveals Toby – who had simply spent a FULL 5 minutes manically digging at a chunk of paper. Finally, Morgan had sufficient of Toby’s noise and (being the alpha cat) he came to visit and simply loomed over Toby till he obtained the message. I shot the photograph simply as Toby realized that he was going to get pounded by Morgan if he didn’t cease. Morgan is 16 years outdated now and never slowing down a lot – though he hasn’t was a freight practice in fairly some time (fortunately!).
