Igor Growing Up

It has been almost eight months since Igor joined us as another WebbPet addition. He has come a long way from the scared, starved, abandoned kitten Jason and Carter found at a gas station right after Christmas. He is now nine or ten months old. He's definitely on the small side and I don't know if it is because of his severe starvation, if he was the runt of the litter, if he's going to have some late growth spurts, or if he is simply a small cat. He looks bigger in pictures than he does in person.

Igor has long ago moved on from hiding in the back corner of the feed room to interacting with the horses, chasing bugs, and generally keeping an eye on his kingdom. His kingdom thankfully remains rather small, and he considers the front barn and the pastures surrounding it to be his territory.

Igor can proudly make the claim that he has his very own air conditioning unit. A few weeks ago I insisted that Jason purchase an AC unit for the office of the front barn to make sure Igor was comfortable when he was shut in there at night. Between Oscar with his heated house and Igor with his AC unit, I would say our stray cats are prepared for all weather events. Being a WebbPet is really a great gig to have in life.
