    I've always wanted to parent a pet but I never had the opportunity growing up. This summer I moved and I told myself I would find the right cat to bring into my home. I ended up finding this little guy. His name is Iago, and he's 15 weeks old. He's been with me for three weeks. He's a rescued feral, and he lost one of his eyes before he got to me, sadly. He was rescued as part of a research project studying catch/sterilize/release for feral control here at the University of Florida's vet school. He was fostered for 12 weeks by a woman from there, and then he came to me. He's such a cutiepie. :) And I love him sooo much. So I just wanted to share. :)

    Cute cat. I especially like the one with him on top of the books. Hey I have two of those books! Knoll and Duderstadt & Hamilton..

    Looks like your cat gets into everything like mine.

    iMissing...lol, it took me a minute.

    Beautiful markings...way to go on adopting a rescued cat. Our adopted cat from the neighborhood has the most personality of our three. Seems the wild ones can be really cool once tamed a bit more.

    Good for you for picking out a cat that most others would shun. I think he is beautiful.

    Looks like he has some Egyptian Mau in him. :)

    Or maybe he's referring to the Othello character....

    That's what I thought. Don't trust the cat, he's using you for his own ends!

    ROFL He does have his evil wickedness moments, but... :D Actually the rescuing mommy named him, and I fell in love with him knowing that name, so I just let it stick. :)

    Although in a few minutes, I'm going to use the vacuum cleaner before going over to the hospital complex for work, and he'll be running for his life. :D

    mkrishnan, I guess you need to add an Iago quote to your signature line now :D

    Here are a couple to get you started :)
