From Carol and Jack - 8 Feb 2004

Hi Katrin,

We arrived home safely and Baley's just checking every room of the house out over and over (and there are many rooms to check). He's purring and becoming very relaxed around us, to the point of just rolling on his back, wanted to be petted. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

My Shih Tsu is not impressed and just walks right past Baley (whose fur puffs up) as if he wasn't there. Then Baley's fur returns to normal and he looks at Muffin as if to say hey, don't I scare you? I know they'll be fine together as time passes. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

Thanks for rescuing this beautiful "gentle giant." We took some pictures and I'm attaching 3 of them. Pictures just don't do him justice. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

Please be assured he's in a good home and is a permanent member of our animal family (Muffin and a huge Black Moor goldfish).

On 18 Feb 2004 Carol sent the following letter.

Hi Katrin,

I received your message today about the distemper. Baley isn't showing any symptoms. He's doing quite well. What we thought was a superior attitude he exhibited over the other cat and my Shih Tsu (arching his back and fluffing his fur) was actually HIS fear of the two. At 26 pounds he's the largest animal in the house (both the cat and dog are 14 pounds each) but their presence causes him to arch and then back off. For his size, I can't believe he's such a fraidy cat. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

He discovered my black goldfish the other evening and was really interested in the tank by standing up to it and watching the fish. Maybe THAT'll be something he won't be afraid of. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

But he's a loveable purrer who prefers to sleep in Jack's bed than anyplace else. I usually wind up with the dog on one side of me and the other cat on the other side in my bed. Baley will come, check out the situation and then go in Jack's room for the night.

So it's the separation of male and female and Jack's still outnumbered. (To enlarge the photo of Baley, click on the photo or link)

Anyway, I've included some pictures of Jack and Baley, the purrfect couple!!!!

Thanks for your call!
