Caesar the Alley Cat, the Cat of the Day
Name: Caesar
Age: Fifteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Alley Cat
Home: Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA
   This is Caesar, an "imported" alley cat, and the middle child of the three cats in our household. His mother was a feral cat, living in the city of Muscat, Oman. She and her two kittens, Caesar and Cleopatra, were cared for by friends of relatives of ours. When they relocated to England, they realized that Caesar (who was by then an orphan) would not handle the six month quarantine very well. He was, and still is, fearful and shy. Instead, they offered to ship him to a good home in the U.S. Our relatives, who had handled the adoptions of two other Omani cats, assisted in the process. We were thrilled to get Caesar! We picked him up in Chicago on August 24, 2004 and he squeaked all the way home.

     Caesar is now fifteen years old. Gradually, he relaxed enough to behave like a furry family member instead of a hunted fugitive. He is very vocal and begins his day of yowling and shrieking at 5:30 am, which he has decided is an appropriate time for breakfast. His hobbies including eating (nearly anything edible), playing and sleeping. He has a ball collection - every kind from pompom balls to glitter balls to rattle balls - which litters the hallways. He will dash through the house, swatting at balls, chasing his older brother, Reggie and making enough noise to imitate a small herd of elephants. He doesn't appreciate being held for very long, but will cuddle up with me on the couch or bed. He loves a scratching under the chin and will reciprocate with head butts and kisses. He adores his older brother, Reggie, but is wary of little sister, Lauren - a playful, mischievous orange tabby.

     Reggie accepted his Caesar with relatively little fuss and greatly benefited from the relationship. He got back down to his young adult weight and was much more active. The cats played, cuddled and groomed each other as if they had grown up together.

     We love our kitties - they are a constant source of affection and amusement. Always adopt two cats! As long as you have two, why not three?
