The Ickmeister
Cat-I-Found-by-the-Side-of-the Road
Yup, this'd be he.
The Ick himself (well, Ich would be more correct, but it looks wrong--unless you speak German) learned his name by day two and comes when you call.  Odd, because what are the chances his name was anything like Ichabod before we got him?

When you pick him up he purrs non-stop, and then sits in your lap like he meant to all along.  Ick has tried very hard to convince me that he's really an indoor cat.  He loves to chase chickens, but you know....really....he's just meant to be inside.  And he shows us all the time by throwing himself at the door and meowing.

And so we've let him in (after a really good flea bath).  Since then he's eaten a 1/8 of a loaf of fresh baked bread and gnawed the top of a monterey jack cheese I was letting dry.  So we've learned to hide food, and he's leaned not to climb on the counters and table--maybe.  And though he fights with Phynn and Charlotte a bit, we're going to let them work it out.  We're hoping the fighting will cease after Phynn and Charlotte are neutered/spayed on Wednesday.  Then, of course, it'll be Icky's turn. 

And hopefully peace and harmony will reign.

But I will still have to hide the cheese.

  1. He is a BEAUTIFUL cat! Maybe he's just been hungry - I bet he'll calm down after a bit.

  2. He looks just like my Dreizehn (do you speak German?) that I found in my garage last September! Zehny also believed he was a house cat, but since I have relocated him to the barn, he spends every night stalking the cornfields and bringing us toads, moles and mice. Better that gnawing the cheese, I'd say.

  3. He is so cute! I can see that personality bubbling out of the photo. Hopefully things will settle down soon and they'll all be one big happy family.

  4. He's adorable! Who could say no to that face?!! (Though I'm with you on the cheese - no cheese for kitties, I'd rather eat it myself, thanks!) Our Anomander looks very similar; his nickname is Demon, and he's also quick to purr, snuggle down, and yell at the top of his lungs at the slightest provocation, especially when he's hungry!

    Good on you for picking him up! Sounds like he's settling in just fine :)

  5. Ack! He's so cute! Ugh, kitties sure do have a way of getting their way, don't they?!


I always love to hear from you. Thank you for leaving your comment here!
