Exotic Shorthair Chester likes his new home

Even though Chester's arrival was delayed by a day, we were still so happy to have him in our lives.  He seemed to be content - he had both a vertical scratching post and a horizontal one, toys, a cat bed and 2 rooms. He even loved the rug! Plus he wasn't bothered by the sounds and smells.

But the bittersweet fact for us was that the boy came to us on a Sunday afternoon,  soon it was evening, and the next day was work. I had more time before work than my husband and visited Chester. He was an unbelievably happy cat


  1. Hello Chester! My, what a cute face you have! Looks like you are adjusting to your new home. We just know you will be one spoiled mancat!

  2. Hi Chester! We are very pleased to meet you and you seem like you like are settling in very well!! We just love your cute face!!
    Howdy from your TX furiends,

  3. Hi Chester. We read about you at The Cat Blogosphere and wanted to welcome you to our cat blogging community. We're so glad you finally found your forever home!!

    Stop over and see us some time.

    1. Hi George, Tipper, Max, and Misty! Thank you very much for the welcome. A few days ago, the only blogging cats I knew wrote in Japanese or took pictures of themselves in tutus (whatever those are!) so it is very nice to meet other cats who write in English and do not wear clothes. I am very happy that I finally found my forever home, too. I thought only stray cats and shelter cats went to forever homes, but now that I am retired I am in one too!

  4. Hi Chester! Welcome to the CB!

    NIKITA: Something else I have to explain to young Elvira about, um, hee, hee! :-D

    ELVIRA: And such a good explainer you are, too! :-D

    NIKITA: Seriously, though...Welcome to the world of Cat Blogging! You are such a great looking Kitty!

    ELVIRA: What he said! Looks like you don't miss your previous career all THAT, hee, hee! :-D

  14. Uh oh - I deleted the comments. I was able to restore most of them but Chester's were lost :( I'm sure he'll have a lot more to say in future comments - and maybe even posts, as it has been suggested to me - but for now just know that he was very happy for the welcomes from other kitties and cat parents over at the Cat Blogosphere.
