We adopted Finnegan (aka Blaze) about a month ago. I should have known what we were in for when his file description used the word energetic three times!
Within an hour of jumping out of the carrier he had investigated all three floors of our house and the cellar, touched noses with our other five cats, looked out every window, climbed the railing going up the stairs ((can you say “claw marks”?), ate, used the litter box and then stretched out in front of the wood stove and fell asleep.
He acts like he has always lived here. He plays constantly with our two year old cat. The other four are reserving judgment but are tolerant and curious. He is affectionate with people and crawls under the covers and sleeps by my feet at night. We all love the new addition to our family.
