MEET MY BIG FAT CAT
This is my cat Schvartzi. Pronounced Sh -vart -z. It is a yiddish word meaning Black.
He came to us about 8 years ago as a stray, wandering around outside our 5 acres in CA. He finally had enough nerve to come up to the house and when he did my slider was open and there he was... MEOW! He had the loudest meow I have ever heard. I think he was telling us that he had decided to adpot us. He was skinny and had what looked like a broken leg and a big sore on his side, We doctored that all up and in a couple of days he was just fine.
He weighs 20 lbs and thinks he is a dog. He does everything the dogs do .
When our little orphan puppies were found also on our property in CA, Schvartzi was there in the puppy pen with them rubbing them and letting them play with him. It was as if to say, you are my puppies and he has never changed his attitude on this subject.
He has been a garage cat up until the past few months when he decided that he wanted to be in the house with the dogs of course. He meows and scratches to come in which I think he learned that trick from Sampson. He lays on the bed with the dogs as if he is one of the guys. The bed is to small for all three!
He is quite a guy and I wanted to share him with all of you.
