ginger-tabby

Instead of Selfie Saturday I thought I’d take a moment to introduce you all to my cat, Chester.  He’s a rescue from a rough home situation where there was a lot of drug use and neglect which is extra sad because he is a major cuddle bug; he makes this little chirping sound if I go too long without paying attention to him and is always waiting by the window when he hears my car pull up outside. In addition to the usual cat pastimes of knocking things off of counters, napping in the sun and pouncing on cardboard boxes, he also loves chewing on things and exploring kitchen cupboards.  His namesake is one of my favorite literary characters, the snarky orange tabby cat from the book Bunnicula, which I read for the first time when I was probably about seven years old and reread many times thereafter.  I don’t think he’s going to be a witch’s familiar to me because he shows absolutely no interest in my cards, crystals, etc, but he is an excellent companion and after just ten days together I already can’t imagine what I did without him 💛

With thanks to @iliveonmylaptop and @zannatinuviel for their ideas on Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon and Yoda respectively!
