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. :)

Baby chillin'

Baby loves to read! :)D someone has to use all the old engineering textbooks I have down there :D )

And baby thinks he's a tiger! :D

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.



macrumors 603, 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. :)

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

Not really into cats myself, but congrats. Pets are always such good fun, and he's a little cutie.

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,
an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?
Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses
contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,
a singular development of cat communications
that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection
for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;
you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.
And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,
it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display
connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.
Very cute cat! nice pics.

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

Here are a couple to get you started :)
