Darby is doing well. He is the friendliest cat I have ever had. Although Pumpkin (the other cat we had) had some trepidation at first, after about two months the two became close friends. Our dog, Bismarck (who sadly passed away at the age of 14 earlier this year), was a different story. Darby instantly bonded with Bismarck, and liked to sleep cuddled up with him.
After Darby, two more rescue cats came into our home, Buster and Star. Although these two cats were nervous about their new home, Darby made them welcome, quietly giving them space until they were ready to meet him. They are all now fast friends, and Darby seems to be the glue that bonds the group together.
Darby is the first cat that we've had that liked riding in the car. Any time we go for a drive, if we turn our back for a second, Darby will chase after us and jump into the car. He also likes of having our six year-old son, Doyle, pick him up and carry him around the house, a task not for the faint-of-heart cat, so the two frequently go on adventures together.
We're so happy that Darby has become a part of our home. I've attached a few photographs of Darby in his new surroundings. Sorry all the photos are of him sleeping. I have yet to get an in-focus picture of him awake, because he immediately runs to stick his nose into the camera as soon as he sees it!
