Derby

















Derby is an energetic three and a half year old man cat. He was adopted two years ago today. It was the first Saturday in May, the day they run the Kentucky Derby, so Derby he became. I was looking to adopt a cat and had been check on the local shelters, mostly on line. So once the timing worked out with work and vacation, I dropped in to check out the kitties in person. There were two that caught my eye and I asked to see them in the play room so I could interact with them outside their cages. Well the first guy didn’t impress me, but Derby came in, and I was sold at the first Meow. He loves to play, chasing toys, his laser dot and me. He spends his waking hours keeping track of the many birds outside at the feeders. Occasionally he even manages to find a mouse in the house. He has been blogging since November 2005, sharing his suburban life as a housecat with the rest of the world. You can visit his blog here. -Mum Janet

Hi Derby! Glad to see you here on Kat's Cat! I love you and your blog! These are great pictures of you, especially the intense hypnotic eyes of the pic on the left. The pic on the right looks just like Oscar when he plays like this, all belly and legs in the air!

Hi Fuzz!
