Sleeping Beauty

Ah - the life of a cat in a good home - couldn't that be the very definition of heaven and bliss? Especially when your story is one of hardship and cold winters and struggling to survive. Here we have Bandito: he was a poor suffering stray cat, who, when we first saw him, ran away at the very slight movement of the door curtain. It took 2 years for him to even consider being inside the screened-in porch. But once he came in, he realized he had found his forever home, and refuses to talk about those bad old days, on the run, unloved, hungry and alone. We tell him regularly: "you know why we called you Bandito? 'Coz you stole our hearts!!? And also for that lovely Zorro mask he has. This is one happy boy, as the pictures clearly attest.

  1. What a gorgeous tuxie!

  2. You might want to check out my blog for a list of things I'm going to do this weekend. Hint: it includes a lot of napping. BTW, I’d like to tell you that I’ve written a scathingly funny book, The World Is Your Litter Box, which will be out in May. The book is cleverly disguised as a cute cat book so humans will buy it, but is, in fact, a how-to manual FOR cats. Check it out on my website,

  3. I love reading stories about former strays who found great homes. Bandito, you are so sweet.
