What a handsome boy!
Gorgeous baby! And I love his name.
Wonderful story! :)
Looks almost like our Princess Penny Too-Fat,or,as we like to refer to her as around these parts, She Who Must Be Obeyed LOL...Very handsome fella!
What a sweet story. He looks like my old cat Normy, but I must say this fellow’s even handsomer.

God bless Tank and whoever adopts him and loves him the rest of his life.
A very heartwarming rags to riches story. I followed the links, and didn’t see him on the list of cats up for adoption. He may have found a home as a result of this article. I hope so! =^..^=
I will have to use that.
