Our latest, as yet un-named adopted child.  Estimated to be about 11 weeks old...but feels he's ready for college textbooks.

Update:  His name is Drogo!  He lives up to it too.

Heh.  If he stayed there more than an instant it might be appropriate...but it looks like we are going for Winter.

Awww, the the family is blessed to give him to a couple who will love him and take good care of him.  Glad they thought of MGM.  With all those books, he needs some kind of studious~ higher studies name.

They don't know us, but they brought him to MGM's work, figuring (correctly) that animal lovers were easy to find in a vet clinic.

MGM met him at work.  The family that had him was very sad to give him up, but it turned out some of the kids were highly allergic to him.

No name yet.  We want to get to know him first.

He is really adorable.  I find it amazing the places they find to lay down or to relax in.

Awww he is adorable!  :la: :la: :la:  Trooper would probably smother me if I got another cat, he is already pissed about my parental units' dog staying here until Monday.  Trooper is so mad that he snatched a peanut butter dog treat from Walter's mouth and ate it while glaring at him.   This cat I tell you, he was born a Decepticon!

LOL!  Well, at least they've got the dominance issues all settled.  ALL cats are Decepticons BTW.  If they are sweet it's just a cover.

My friend says I should have named him Loki because everybody who meets him loves him but he will make them fall on their knees before him as his slaves.  He slapped my sister last time she was over because she stopped scratching his head :rofl:  Maybe you should give the little newbie a Decepticon name :plotting:

I don't think Walter knows how to be dominate, he was a rescue who spent 4 years locked in a crate before my parents took him in and then he was  trained to be a pet by their cat, so I think he think he is a cat as well.  He did use the litter box a few times in the past too.

That's very funny!  Loki was one of our top 3 contenders...but we were afraid it would give him ideas.  Looks like we're going for Winter.  The other contender was Mako (as in the shark.)

Our last dog Marcus had identity issues too.  Washed his paws, all of that.

Yep, Walter is constantly cleaning his paws!  I took him for a walk around the whole complex and ended up carrying him the last half of the walk and now he is passed out.  

Oh wow!  Probably best not to use Loki, could you imagine telling the kitty "No!" and you get that look that says "I DO WHAT I WANT!"  Yep, that is when you know who just took over the house ;)  I like Winter that is cute :D

We ended up with Khal Drogo (do you know Game of Thrones at all).  Fearless...check.  Takes over everything.  Check.  Tries to kill everything that moves.  Check.  The king of his people by virtue of being the greatest warrior...?  Um.  No...but he THINKS he is.  However, I'm not sure it's going to be any more of a good influence on his attitude than Loki would have been. 

It's great to see him try to take on Rayne.  She just sits there and when he charges she glomps him to the ground.

I like Winter better in some ways, but Drogo was the only one he sort of responded to.

My parentals watch it, I have seen some episodes too so a little bit.   He must have figured out who was the badass in the show and decided to ignore all names until you called him Khal Drogo! 

Way to go Rayne :clap: give him a super glomp :XD:  

The actor who plays Khal Drogo is going to be Aquaman, I am kind of curious about how that will pan out.

illmatar Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2014
Heh.  That's probably it exactly.

In any case, that actor certainly has the build for the role, we'll have to see if he can pull off the rest.  He did a great job in GoT but the character didn't exactly have a lot of emotional range.
