As I snuggle on the couch, recovering from an appendectomy with Louis, our new cat, I just had to write to say how thoroughly happy we are with our new family addition.

Louis, either a Russian Blue or (I think) Korat, is 9 years old and had some dental issues. He was no spring chicken, but has turned out to be so gentle and so fun!

He adores playing with his favorite toy – a kite string. He will play with it until you get tired, then find a box to squeeze into, or take a nap on your hands while typing. Ha!

My son and I could not have been luckier. He’s the perfect cat for us! Playful and sweet.

Thanks a million for giving him a chance for a new home and for us the chance to love Louis!

He must have taken cute lessons.
