Deep, Dark Forrest

The name "Forrest" has been on my list for quite some time.  It's one of my favorite names, and I was just waiting for a special kitten to come along that the name seemed to fit.    

Well, finally he arrived.

Dark in color, deep in thought, here's Forrest Petrie.

In his early scaredy-cat days, he earned the nickname "Petrified Forrest".  

Thankfully, he's past all that now.    He worked through his trust issues,  was the very first of the batch to purr, and has turned out to be quite a little lover.

  2. Petrified Forrest. You are too funny Laurie! But Forrest is a perfect name for the little guy. Forrest has a good solid sound to it. And he is soooo cute!

  3. "Petrified Forrest"...*snort*

    But he still looks a little uncertain...we need to see many, many, many more pictures of this gorgeous boy just to be sure he is out of his shell! ;)

  5. He is such a beautiful boy! The name fits perfectly. Could he perhaps now be more of a Mysterious Forrest, thinking deep thoughts?

  6. He is so handsome...can't wait to see more of this bunch. I LOVE the all gray color. He will surely be a sight to behold when he is bigger!

  9. What a gorgeous boy he'll be as an adult. Watch out, family-- he'll have a following all his own.

  13. What a cutie - I love his name and that sweet face! I'm envisioning a movie clip of him being chased down for a bath from Charlene with his 3 siblings meowing out, "Run Forrest! Run!"

  14. Oh Forrest is adorable! Perfect name, perfect sweet baby! His fur looks particularly plush in this picture...

  15. That's a great name! I also think a good name for an all-gray male cat would be "Kingsford" (as in the charcoal). :)

  16. He's a honey pie...very very cute and the name (enigmatic and dark) suits him to a tee! Yay Forrest! :D

  18. He is just so bonnie, the colour of his coat is so deep and rich.

  19. Love, love, love him and his name. I, too, have an all grey scary cat, who I adore to pieces. I hope Forrest finds a family who'll bring him out of his shell, too. Adore!

    1. I saw it as "pee'-tree" as in a petri dish, but I'll take either. I can crack tons of lame jokes either way. XD

  22. Oh what a handsome chap you are! We've only known friendly greybies

  23. Little Forrest looks velvety soft. How I'd live to pet this stunning boy!
