Re: Those who have adopted older cats??
I know what you mean, because I had kind of the same feeling about Murphy. We adopted him when he was almost 2. He was so incredibly sweet and affectionate, there was a feeling like this couldn't possibly be the "real" him. On the other hand, cats don't really have the capacity to be duplicitous. They're themselves all the time, whiich is one of the things I love about them. So other than going through phases about where they like to sleep, what their favorite toy is, etc., I think you're looking at the real kitty! Congrats on the adoption.
