Since we’re doing this chronologically, 4 and 5 are simultaneous

Doc and Sextus came together from the shelter, along with the late lamented Quint, Sexty’s brother.

We were smitten by Doc – literally, he has witchy eyes and we had no choice – and had waited out the week until he was available.
Sair’s ballet teacher volunteers there, though, and she somehow magicked us into taking two more cats at the same time.
Poor Sextus and Quint had been at the shelter all their short lives awaiting a home, and after about eight months, their time was really, really up.
I tried to plead enough cats, but Miss Patricia has fourteen.

It was a good thing, though, because Doc needed some older brothers to push around, and Sextus needs a kitty to love.
He adores Doc.
And who wouldn’t.

I mean, can you resist that face?
Or how about this belly?

In case you can’t see it, here is a better shot.

I think in this one you can see that his belly fur is in little ringlets.
Srsly.
So you can see why Sexty (here) thinks he’s so wonderful.

So they are buddies.
Sadly, the advent of cat #6, Habeeb, has driven Sextus to a life of exile on the back porch (along with Wolfie).
But before that, this was the usual configuration.

  1. Last I saw Sextus, he was on the front porch, wondering who I was and how did I know his name.

    Doc has a very floofy butt and cataloons as well.

  4. Doc appears to have some Maine Coon Cat breeding. Tufted ears, the curlicue undercoat (Mishoo gots that tho he be a Weegie). And the eyes… I’d give him anything he wants!

  5. I am slain by cat belly – do you think my boss will accept that as a valid reason to stay at home? 😛

  6. Doc has a Not-Very-Marvelous-Adventure of his very own, if I remember correctly.

    • That was basically when Doc became My Cat.
      Before that, he was rather evenhanded in his treatment of us all.
      Now I am His; he sits on or by me all the time, and he doesn’t much like to share with the others.
