I don't want a lot for Christmas

All I want for Christmas is . . .












Fergus.

This is Fergus. He's male. He's orange. He's tabby. He's got freckles on his nose. He's hungry. He's (as good as) homeless.

Opinions that have been freely expressed are that I do not need another cat. I may not, but Fergus needs to have someone who will care for him, and that might as well be me.

If he doesn't get along with the herd, then I will find him another loving person, but my goal at this point is to tempt him into my clutches with a can of 9 Lives some time before the New Year.

(As far as that "as good as homeless," he lives in a wet cardboard box on the porch of a house rented by a bunch of middle-aged biker guys. They don't own him, they just put the box out there and don't shoo him off the porch, but they never let him in, they don't feed him, and they haven't shown any interest so far in the fact that Fergus and I have a standing breakfast meeting on their front steps.)

He will be mine.

Oh, yeah. The jacket. It's almost done. Pictures (hopefully) tomorrow.

Thank you for looking after Fergus.

Fergus looks like my cat Riff, who died suddenly about this time of year two years ago. So naturally, I hope Fergus moves in. Maybe I'll get to meet him.

Oh yeah ... Fergus would definitely be mine by now if I was you. Animals tug at my heartstrings like nothing else. Love his freckles, and that name - did you christen him or did the bikers?

Yay for Fergus. I'm sure you will get your wish. Wonder if those "freckles" are some sort of skin problem.

Good for you. I'm sure you will succeed :)

Fergus is a sweetie pie. I can certainly see why he needs to become part of the family. You are a kind soul to take him into your home.

You are a very kind-hearted person. I adopted three kittens who were shelter-bound. Now my household has 5 cats and I qualify as crazy cat lady. I don't care. The kittens are rambunctious and fun to watch.
Merry Christmas. :)

I have no doubt that Fergus will join the family soon. He's a cutie!!

Brooke said...

Orange kitties are my favorite (my orange cat has freckles on his nose too!!). Yay for saving Fergus!!!

I think that Fergus the Biker Cat has every intention of making your Christmas wishes come true. Yay!

Christy Sews said...

Fergus is such a cutie. God bless you for looking out for him.

What a good soul you are. Happy holidays!

I hope your Christmas wish comes true. Every kitty and dog deserves a forever home.

Merry Christmas!

Lucky Fergus! I bet Santa will pop him in his bag on the way to your house.

Fergus is going to have a wonderful Christmas. I'm a sucker for cats too.
Merry Christmas.

He looks so much like my beloved Marmalade, Marmy for short. It still breaks my heart that he's gone. When you get Fergus, give him a hug from me. If he'll let you, that is.

Rose said...

Fergus is very charming, but are you sure that the dark spots are freckles? they might be tattoos... (I'm joking). I hope that you are able to entice him into your clan...

Awww... I'm kind of surprised he hasn't followed you home yet since you're the one with the food. What kind of appeal could that wet paper box have? Maybe take the box with you and leave a trail of food behind you the next time you see him? Good luck.
