Addison explores the deck!

I finally did it. I decided to babygate the stairs that go to the yard and let Addison out on the back deck. Its high up (about 10 feet) so I really really hope the temptation to jump won't get the better of him... and after a few freaked out moments standing at the door wanting to go back in, he really seemed to like being out there.

And this is the first time I've had a decent opportunity to take some pretty pictures with my new camera!!

He did about 4 laps around before he did what he does best - found a cozy spot to plop down. Enjoy!

feeling the place out a bit


ooooooh, loving the chair!


*this is my favorite*


eh, this spot is ok, but not quite right


ahhh, much better


almost there...


yep, this is the life!

Nice photo story -- good work!! Addison has such wonderful, beautiful, soulful eyes -- I don't know how you could ever say "no" to him.

Addison. He. Him.
Is Addison a male calico?

Love the pics, especially the beautiful green eyes!

no... but its a looooong story. summary - was told by several people (both at the shelther that "neutered" him and three times at the vet's office) that it was in fact a male... I knew nothing of cats at this point so I knew him and loved him as a male for probably two years. First visit to my vet (after I started working there) was a sad reality. I tried for a while to go with the "she" thing and it just didn't work. So he's still my little boy as far as I'm concerned

SB, Addison's story had me laugh out loud! That really is CUTE!

When I was a 10 yr old kid, we moved into our just completed house in the country on Christmas Eve. Friends of our folks' gave us (sis and I) two kittens as housewarming gifts. Oscar and Eon. Well, Oscar turned out to be a Tootsie when she got pregnant and gave us kittens!
However, we were successful in changing him to a her...

<still chuckling>

Ack.....now that my memory has been roughly jogged, I vaguely remember this from some time long ago. Sorry about that.

Jessie - do you always call "him" Addison? Or is it sometimes Addie? Or am I thinking of another cat?

nope, just Addison (although my mother has taken to calling him "Mittens" because... well she's odd)
