Hello bees! This is my first post on Weddingbee, although I’ve contributed to a few threads on bridesmaids dresses. SO and I moved in together the first week of July, and three weeks ago moved into our first apartment! We’ve been dating three and a half years.
Anyway, I know you didn’t open the thread to read about me, you’re here looking for pictures of our boy!
I’ve never lived without a cat, so it was a big deal to live through the last three weeks without one. My cat stayed with my Dad, as she’s used to being an indoor-outdoor cat, and we were moving into the city.
He’s a three year old manx (a stubby) that was given to us by a woman who had too many pets and felt that Cabot (formerly Cookies and Cream) was too aggressive to live with so many other animals. Since he’s been with us, there’s been no signs of aggression. In fact, he’s a giant suck-up. He follows SO everywhere, and snuggles with me on the couch. He gets so into our petting sessions that he drools. I love this guy.
For those curious about the name, I had started with traditional Manx names for him, like Illiam, Fergus, and Dolyn. I then read that the manx cat was considered a hybrid between a cat and a rabbit… a “cabbit”. Change the spelling to Cabot, like the explorer (my undergraduate degree was in history), and we had a winner!
