Kipper





















This is our cat "Kipper"He arrived 7 years ago during a great gale sweeping across the West of Ireland. We heard an unusual squeeking outside the back door, and there was this this tiny scrap of wet and muddy fur. This we washed in the kitchen sink, and there was Kipper. He grew up to be a very handsome cat as you can see. He is very affectionate, but likes to go off on his own sometimes. He was once away for a week, and we thought we had lost him, but he came home well fed and glossy as ever. He likes climbing trees, and loves to have his photograph taken, and as soon as he sees the camera he poses. Kipper was our first cat, now he has 9 companions (all rescued). -Chris O.

WOW! What a handsome cat! The pic on the left is so cute but the photo on the right is STUNNING! WOW is all I can think to say! Thaks for seeking out the rescue kitties, pure breeds are so wonderful and amazing, too, but there are so many out there who need homes because they've been discarded or born to a feral Mommy. We all know what eventually happens to these poor cats.

Kipper is a very handsome man-cat. That photo on the right is gorgeous, looks like a card or poster.
The photo on the left is really cute, showing his cuddlier, kitty side.
Congratulations on adopting all his friends, all rescues. Way to go.

Kipper is beautiful! So relaxed, and not a care in the world -- and with such a stormy beginning! Bless you for taking him in! He'll love you for ever!
