Photoblogging Monday!! (barely)

Just eeking by the deadline, I present to you Photoblogging Monday.

This one is taken of our newest addition to the family, Garfunkel (or, G-funk for short). We adopted him just after Christmas. He's around 2 years old and upwards of 15 pounds.

Garfunkel's story is quite remarkable - he was turned into the pound in California City (look it up, it does exist), by an old lady who couldn't care for him anymore. No one picked him up because he wasn't neutered, and apparently California City is one of the few places that doesn't automatically fix their animals. He was scheduled to be put down, but the vet didn't have the heart to, so Garfunkel sat in his way-too-small cage for 3 weeks. Again, no one would adopt an older cat with balls so he was within hours of being put down a second time. That's when a rescue group called Halfway To Home picked him up. We first met G-funk at our local Petsmart a day later when they were doing pet adoptions.

Don't take this the wrong way, but this cat kind of reminds me of you.
