My cats : Gazette

Inspired by Estella from Starofthe east on Etsy, I decided to present you my kitties.
Today star cat is Gazette.
Gazette "El Loco" Mc Bain, also known as the Mysterious Gazette got his name after I tried to chase him away with a newspaper. Yes, because Gazette just arrived in my house one day without being invited. It was a summer day and the garden door was opened. He came in, started eating and went to nap on the sofa...and never left, even after my attempts at scaring him with a newspaper.

I am not sure how old he is as he was a full grown and operational (as in spayed LOL) kitteh when he arrived which makes him at least 11 now...though you couldn't tell as Gazette is one of those cats who doesn't seem affected by the passing of time.
Though he is very cuddly and unfazed, he can be quite unpredictable at times, earning him his nickname of "El Loco" (the crazy one). So if you see scratched wallpaper at a surprising height on the wall (2 meters and higher), don't look any further, El Loco did it.
To this day I have no idea where he comes from, what decided him to instantly adopt me as he looked well looked after and not abandonned at all. I joke he just came back to the wrong house and never realized it ;)

Cats know where they belong, it is just that sometimes people will try and make them live someplace else. Cats are unfazed by that and just move on as suits them ;)
Cats are cool!

Awwww your Gazette is so handsome and cute!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE cats!!!!!!!! And I have a weakness for black kitties... they are special! We lost my beloved furry sister Nerina, who was 18, in September 2009 and I'll miss her forever. My mom has a sweet black girl named Lilli, she's a sweetheart!
Thank you for introducing your sweet kitties!
