Barkleigh's paws were wet because his sister had pooed on his back when we were visiting (at 7 weeks! Siblings! So we washed him in the sink and he was drying in the hot Florida sun. But that was 2 weeks ago. He arrived home on Saturday (at 9 weeks) and has been a busy (very well behaved) boy ever since.
Only problem is his name may be all wrong since e have yet to hear him bark! In fact, he rarely makes a sound. And why should he? He is perfectly content. The 3 giant Norwegian Forest cats are a little perterbed, but Barkleigh is sweet and interested without being pushy, so he'll win him over.
Note: Barkleigh's ear color is identical to our daughter's (all natural) hair color!
PS Both are adopted. One at 9 weeks, one at 12 years from US foster care.
