Hi everyone - just an update to say Francis is doing great. When we got him at the end of October, he wasn't even 4 pounds. We took him back to the vet last week and he's 8.6 pounds! There have been times I've looked at him and said, "I swear I can see you growing right before my eyes!" I guess I was right. He has a great personality, friendly to the strays that hang around and the neighbor's cat. Plays with whoever and whatever he finds, plays fetch and when he's cold, he comes in my bed and sits to stare at me until I lift the blankets for him - then he snuggles right into the curve of my arm. He loves his mama. Here's a picture of him taken on a sunny and mild day back in January. He's grown even since then and we feel he's going to be a big, long boy.
