Next up is Snaggle...fully named Snaggle Tooth as his teeth and lips are always getting stuck on each other. We generally call him Snaggle though.
Snaggle is a curmudgeonly old man who is desperately in love with my hubby. He was a neighborhood stray that showed up one day for the catnip I was growing outside. I ended up finding out most of the neighbors on my street were caring for him. He ended up needing several vet visits and after a late night attack from another cat we decided he needed a safe permanent home.
It's a good thing we did too...he ended up having a bad hyperthroid problem and is on meds for it. His back hips are also very bad with arthritis and hip-dyslasia. Eventually we figured he was deaf also...so outdoor living was not a good idea for him, tomcat or no.
Though I say he is curmudgeonly he really is a love...so sweet and he made my hubby fall in love with cats. They are very very close and it's one of the sweetest relationships I have had a chance to witness. If only I could find the old man the fountain of youth...he is definitly a senior citizen, we are just not sure how old, and try to convince ourselves he is younger than he looks.
Anyway...here he is:

Last up is Mito (pronounced Me-toe) who is a Hemmingway with big ol' feet. Not sure how old he is but pretty young, five or under. Picked him up at the shelter. The group of cats he was with were going to be put down so I had to take him over all the kittens. No one was really looking at him and I didn't want him put down. Turns out he is a bit crazy and appears he may have been abused as he is really hand shy.
Handsome devil but as coocoo as can be...not sure I have ever heard a cat with so many weird vocal noises but he is talker, hummer, kinda walks around sounding like a car trying to start. He is big boy too! About 15 lbs but is scared of his own shadow. Eventually he is going to need a companion to play with...the girls and Snaggle are too old and set in their way and not overly friendly.
He really doesn't like the camera but I was able to get some shots on a couple different days.
What a face huh?
Big ol' Yawn:
