Happy 13th, Smeagle!

While everyone was celebrating Thanksgiving this past week, my oldest cat, Smeagle, was celebrating his 13th birthday. He wasn’t particularly fond of the camera. The above shots were the best I could get him to pose for in the last few days.

Yes, Smeagle is named after the Lord of the Rings character (thank you, Tim). He’s a grumpy surrogate grandpa to 4 younger cats — Jane and Oreo are also pictured above. He is a great companion and has never met a human stranger.
