Oh, the Smalls. How we loved our Smalls.
Today, Mr Sol Small is paying us a visit. First, let's take a look at Sol when he was small.
And here's the big boy today!
MAN, is he handsome!
Here's what his Mama Abby has to say about her not-so-small Small...
He is such a character. I don't think he is full grown yet, but he is getting taller and lankier as time goes on. His coloring has also gotten darker. Most notably though is that he is an absolute lover of all people. He wants to love everyone, all of the time. Sol greets me at the door every day when I get home, sometimes half asleep looking like he dragged himself out of a nap to be there.
He wants to meet every new person that comes through the door. When we first exchanged emails I said I was looking for a cat that was people oriented and boy did you deliver!
Sol has an evolving but very positive relationship with our older cat, Apollo. Apollo used to bathe him and they would cuddle. Now there is more wrestling and playing, but they still get on very well and I think Apollo seems less anxious when we get back from being away. They are without a doubt very good friends. We have a friend staying with us this week who is an emergency vet and she has been very impressed that they get along so well. She also can't stop talking about what a sweetheart he is. If I had to rank Sol's biggest interests I think it would be: 1) people, 2) plastic springs (actually these may be #1!) 3) Apollo 4) birds outside.
Thank you for this wonderful update and lovely photos, Abby! We're so happy he's so happy with you! And we're so happy you're so happy with him!
$1000 of our match has been met, $1500 to go! If you're in the position to give, please pop on over to our FUNdraising page, and make a tax-deductible donation to help cats and kittens find fabulous homes, just like Sol did!
Once we bring in another $500, I'll be back with another alumni update!
