Cowboy Chuck

We are officially maxed out on pets! We got down to 1 pet - Murph for about a year ( well, 2 pets if you count Ryan's  fish Fiona) and now we are up to 2 dogs, a cat and a fish. I have missed not having a cat ever since Toot didn't come home about 6 months ago, but I wasn't actively seeking to adopt one.  Molly and Toot were the BEST cats and it was hard to imagine finding another cat like them.  Well, it looks like we have!  The Deller family let us know about a 4-6 month old kitten who needed a home and Chris misheard and thought the kitten was named Cowboy Chuck when really that was the name of the man who had found him.  When Chris thought the kitten was named that he said he couldn't say not to it!  So, we now have the sweetest cat, who is now officially named Cowboy Chuck! So far he seems to be just like Molly and Toot.  He comes when called, loves to be petted, can be indoor/outdoor (soon, we are letting him get used to us first, but eventually we will have no litter box), is super tolerant of the kids (especially Polly) and acts more like a dog than a cat.  We love him!

The day we got him Emma came home from school and took a 2 hour nap with him.

Polly loves Chuck and he puts up with a lot from her.
She likes to pick him up by his neck and pull his tail.
