The Newest Member of our Family
I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. This is Mozart, or MoMo as he is lovingly called by my grandchildren. MoMo is a seal point Himalayan male 6 month old cat. He is the most adorable little guy you would ever want to meet. I had been looking for a Ragdoll cat. I looked on several petfinder and pet rescue web sites. A lady from one of the rescue sites posted a message to me on Facebook telling me about this cat who had been named Wicket. I immediately called the Rescue animal hospital to see if he was still available. To my good fortune, he was still available. I drove about 90 minutes to get him but it was a wonderful decision. He is just about the sweetest little guy I have come across. He has bonded well with me and most nights he hops up on my bed and nuzzles me wanting a good petting session sometime in the middle of the night. A Himalayan cat is the product of crossing a Persian cat with a Siamese cat. They have the wonderful personality and fluffy hair of a Persian and the markings of a Siamese.
At first, our other cat, Rickey Martin growled and hissed at him (the first two days, in fact), but has come to decide that he really likes him. Now they roll and play together and have even been taking occasional naps together. My two dogs, a Boston Terrier and a Bichon Frise, have also accepted him and all four animals play well together. So our new addition has worked out very well.
