The Young Red Kitty (now a Cat)
I fell in love with Red Kitty when he wandered on to our farm in Iowa back in 2002. His eyes were an amazing orange color that matched his amazing orange fur. It was love at first sight...and it was mutual love, too. I love boy cats...they can just be so darn affectionate!
The Red Kitty was probably about 6 or 7 months old when he moved in, and after we had him neutered, he moved into our house with 3 other cats and a German short-hair pointer. Later, he moved to Woodstock with me. Back then he was the young punk of the house...here he's become the elder statesman. Time flies!
I was searching for old photos of him and haven't had much luck with finding stills yet (my early digital photo filing was a disaster!) But I was very happy to find this little clip with a collection of other ones. He was then, and continues to be, quite a character. Red is a credit to the Red Cat Race, if I do say so myself!!
