Yes, he was a beautiful boy. Toby seems to be doing fine. Thank you for asking. He was adopted from a shelter and gets along with all humans and cats. Although they weren't close, he used to groom Milo. Milo had gotten old by the time we adopted Toby, so there was very little playing involved.

Milo was clearly the head cat in the household. If Toby was laying in my lap and Milo came up, Toby would leave immediately. Today Toby spent a good 4 hours in my lap because he now has me all to himself.

We are going to watch Toby and see if he shows signs of needing companionship. He is very attached to us, and sometimes he will cry outside my home office door when he needs attention. He still plays a lot, and if he seems lonely at times we will adopt another young cat to be his buddy. Honestly, it is nice to only have to care for 1 cat right now. We've had up to 3 at one time and although we loved them all it was taxing.

Our boy, Toby

Milo, Sasha and Misha, we miss you!

OMG. I saw that first pic and burst out laughing. And the legs are crossed. Wish i could do that. My Razzle used to do that. I'm so sorry for your loss. RIP

Yes, he was a rare cat and we are so happy to have had him in our lives. The two things he loved were laying on his back and laying in the sun. (I think because he was a Florida cat.) He kept us entertained for sure.

Toby seems to be getting along just fine. We have lots of lap time these days. Interestingly, we have a two-cat feeding dish and he has not eaten any of Milo's food. There was definitely a mutual respect there.

Our boy, Toby

Aww. He's leaving Milo's food, in case he returns. I'm glad he's doing ok. When Margaux died, Celia grieved for so long, and her behavior changed - it appears permanently. It's not bad behavior, just not how she was for her first 14.5 years.

In some ways, it is nice to be able to give one cat all the attention he or she wants. Sometimes, I found it hard to decide how to divvy up my time so that each cat got equal attention. Toby is getting all of your attention now, but he also probably wants it, and needs it, even more.

Yes, we have a two-dish arrangement and we finally cleaned out Milo's side today. Toby was respectful of that side, knowing it was Milo's. It broke my heart to empty the food, because it also made me realize that Milo wasn't coming back.

Toby seems to enjoy all of the extra attention. He is a character. He laid on my lap upside down tonight on the couch while I rubbed his belly. He always "talks" to us when he is needing attention. We are going to keep close tabs on him. If he seems to be the least bit lonely, we will be looking for another cat!

BTW, our beautiful Toby is in my signature pic now.

Our boy, Toby

Milo, Sasha and Misha, we miss you!

He is adorable. I like how his back paws are crossed as he lays on the floor. RIP Milo.
