Roger























This is Roger. He is my parents' orange tabby boy. He is almost 3 years old now. He was born to a barn cat and adopted by us when he was 8 weeks old. After having him for 2 weeks with no name we finally settled on Roger - my dad's name! Everyone agreed it worked for him. Now, he and my dad are exactly alike - loving, but slightly neurotic! Roger's absolute favorite thing to do is sleep in the sun and knead blankets with his paws. In the second picture he is grooming my cat Oscar (cat of the day on Feb. 28). They are best friends and Roger is always so happy when Oscar comes to visit.-Amy

Roger is a very handsome orangie.I think they are all slightly neurotic
certainly very kneady(no,that is not a typo.) I also think they are the most affectionate little sweethearts.
I know my Alfie is. Love the grooming picture. Obvious that the groomer and groomie are getting equal pleasure :)
