Haggis

This week's featured feline is a dashing dude, who reminds me of a slightly less fluffy version of famous internet furball, Colonel Meow! He's also a wonderful testament to what a little TLC can do!

This is Haggis, he came to us from Cat Adoption Team, a really great local cat rescue. We had just lost our beloved old guy, Tuxedo, and while sitting at my computer feeling sorry for myself, I found myself looking at CAT’s website.

This was the night we brought Haggis home, there sure has been a huge change (and lots of fur!) since that night.

There on the first page, was this fuzzy thing with huge eyes. I kept looking for a few days, then found myself at the pet store he was being shown in. He came home the next day and is still here tormenting his two older brothers, Jasper and Dakota.



Haggis is quite the personality boy! He is always up to something, from playing fetch, attacking feet, running around at full speed for no apparent reason, to snuggling up on your lap for a nice nap, or hovering over the furnace vent hogging all the heat!  


It’s hard to believe that someone let this beautiful and wonderful cat go to a pound, luckily the pound saw his potential and sent him to the rescue. He’s turned into a beautiful boy and we feel extremely lucky that he found his way to our home, although his brothers may not agree!

Special thanks to Paula for sharing Haggis with us this week!
