Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

Sweet Sweet Alex

He is the most lovey-dovey cat around!! He never makes messes or gets into 'things' he shouldn't; he just wants to curl up beside you and either nap or have an animated conversation.

My neighbor - Miss Sally - took the following photo of Alex at Christmas time and then played with it on Photoshop until she ended up with this delightful picture.

Alex loves to nap - a little bit of sun and a warm blankey and all is well with his world.

Another place that seems to intrigue this sweet boy is my bathtub. I could understand lying in the tub when it's summer and 110+ degrees outside; however it is winter and it's a bit cold where he is hanging out - goofy Alex.

Chat later
