What a Character

home town: Long Piddleton
Melrose Plant
once Lord Ardry, the Earl of Caverness

Melrose taking a breather

from his constant exploring

tough taking photos
of black cats...

back to work

checking out what's
in the cupboards

As for Olivia
she's having a bit of a hissy

knowing her
it won't last long
she loves
having a friend

I had a black cat once, he had the prettiest green eyes.

What a beautiful cat and the name, Melrose, fits him perfect. Olivia will soon become friends with Melrose and they will have a great time, especially when you are gone.

What a sweetie. He is handsome. I hope Olivia gets over her hissy.

I've had MANY cats in my life and my most special baby was a black cat that looked just like Melrose. His name was Conway Kitty, as in Conway Twitty and yes, he was my Darlin! I know Melrose is glad to have a wonderful new home and thank you for rescuing him and giving him a new life.

This has got to be one of the luckiest kitties in the world...having you for the protector and mom is a wonderful thing!! He's a beautiful guy; and I'm sure you and Olivia will love him. (Wish there were more people like you in the world...)
