Bringing Up Baby

We sprang our new cat from Kitty Jail yesterday and brought him home. Oh, he is so cute and friendly as all get out. The Animal Care and Control people estimates his age at around 3 years old, but I think he's younger; his face looks barely out of kitten stage and he rolls on his back to bat at your hand like a kitten. He has the oddest voice I've ever heard from a cat, very high-pitched and hoarse, sometimes he sounds more like a hawk. We've pretty much landed on Saki as his name, it's more fun to say than Zim. Thanks to Miss Janey for her vote on the naming issue, I shall occasionally remind him his hair is fierce in your honor.

Anyway, here's his pictures. Caution: Extreme Adorablenss.
