Continuing with the introduction of our little armada, let’s move on to Happy.
Happy is Kate’s cat, and there’s little doubt about that. While she and I were dating, my arrival at her place was cause for celebration in a “Yes! Testosterone! Lets watch some football!” kind of way, because well, Kate being a girl, and Vinnie (our fourth cat in this series) being a girl, despite his hardware, Happy didn’t get much chance for dude time. Since the cohabitation, however, it’s become more and more clear that Happy is a momma’s boy.
He’s the oldest of our four and tied for second place on my favorites list. He seems to be a “gateway cat” for cat haters, too. He’s got the easygoing, friendly attitude of an older black lab, which has led to me calling him “puppycat” on a frequent basis.
He’s close to Scout on my favorites list, but not close enough to tie for first. Extremely well-behaved, socially fearless, and still very much a kitten at heart, I suspect that Happy is going to be around for a long time.
Nicknames: Happenstance, McSlapperton, Haps, Puppycat.
