Introducing Kingo, the Russian Blue.
I'm not sure why I have been scared to share the news. Perhaps it's because most of the people we know are "dog people" and I thought they would turn their noses up in disgust. But how could you be disgusted by that face?
Or, maybe it's because even though I love cats, I wasn't sure I ever wanted to own one because I'm obsessed with cleanliness and sensitive to smells, but when the opportunity came up to adopt this 1 year-old kitty for free, we had to pounce on it.
Since we have an unfinished basement, we set up his domain down there. He is allowed to come up to the main level for play time and nap time, but he is never allowed on the counter top, table, or upstairs in the bedrooms. He's actually quite obedient and smart.
He is also definitely one of the sweetest cats I've ever known. He never scratches or bites. His favorite thing to do is curl up right next to me on the couch (even as I type this blog) and take naps. He also likes to put his paws around our necks and give us hugs and "head-butts." I'm not even kidding. The picture below shows what he does on a daily basis. It's very cute.

Hylan wasn't much of an animal person before, but he loves this kitty wholeheartedly!
