Happy Gotcha Day Maestro!!!

Seventeen years ago mom was home on break from college and was convinced that the resident cat (Angel Butterscotch) needed a friend. She knew grandpa would be unamused, so she went to the local shelter and picked up this tiny gray and white kitten (we would love to show you a picture, but mom has NO IDEA where she put the old prints). Anyhow, Butterscotch HATED the new kitten...until after he came back from being neutered....  :)

Maestro has traveled to grad school in Michigan, an adventure in Texas and now to our home in Ohio. He is the senior mancat of the house.

Happy Gotcha Day!!!


Mom couldn't get him to wear the hat, so she settled for the silly collar.

No party is complete without treats - hope you can join us!!

We decided to come back to answer a question: How did Maestro get his name? Mom doesn't like to use people names (and before you say anything, Tim and Tom had their names when they got here). Mom was in college when she gotted Maestro. She is into music and the maestro is the conductor of an orchestra - it just popped into her head and stuck. And has been baffling people with the spelling ever since....MOL
