I want to thank you for taking me in until I could find a good home. I am doing great and have fit in quite well. I have an older sister to show me the ropes and to play with. There are 4 cats and a bunny too, all kinds of interesting critters. Yes, I'm a Hill Country boy now and my mom has a red kerchief on my neck. No more big city life for me. I get to go out for walks twice a day and if it's cold out my mom has a coat or sweater for us to wear. I love to be outside in the yard too. I enjoy being on mom's lap, but have to share her with my sister Katy and sometimes the cats too. One day I was tired and jumped in the recliner for a nap and Miss Kitty was already in there napping, so I just snuggled up to her and slept. My mom got a kick out of that. I enjoy going for rides in the car and went to Petsmart. I was a very good boy and on my best behavior while in the store. When I first got here I thought the cats might hiss or growl at me, but my charms won them over right away and there was none of that. I've been good about my baths too. I love to run and play in the house. My mom wants to pick another name for me, but she hasn't settled on one yet.
