I'll bet there aren't many out there who remember this little guy. It's Archie Flanagan from my very first litter after starting the blog! Oh, what a fabulous face.
Archie was adopted in April of 2009 and christened 'Tino' - short for Valentino. I've heard from his mom Marylou occasionally over the years; most recently this past December.
I'd say Valentino is a just and fitting name for this handsome specimen of eye candy.
It's so good to see him after all this time and I'm very grateful to Marylou for being so thoughtful and remembering to send photos. This sure does take me back.
I'll always remember a very nice man who contacted me from Chicago after he'd seen these boys to tell me that he'd recently lost his beloved cat Archie, and his last name was Flanagan. He was touched to the point of making a donation to our shelter. Nice.
I have several more updates I want to share. I've been meaning to collect them all into one post for some time now, but since I'm obviously not going to do that I'll share them individually.
I'm also hopeful that it won't be too long before I hear the pitter patter of tiny kitten feet again.
