Archie's Gotcha Story

Hi Friends,

We Gotcha'd Archie on February 9, 2010.  Robert and I had just returned from visiting my brother in England and out of the blue he said to me "I think we should get another cat."  We were already a three cat family but Robert reasoned that cats make me happy so why not get another and because one never knows what life holds, it is silly to put things off.  I happily agreed with his logic so off we went to the shelter (little did I know we would get two more cats in the following two years!).  Young Master Archie, who was named Marshal at the time, sat quietly at the front of his cage and stole our hearts with his happy little ginger face.  I decided to change his name to Archie because according to a website of Scottish names and their meanings, Archibald/Archie means bold one or brave warrior, and he was the most fearless kitten I had ever met!!!

Here is Archie as a six month old baby....

and this of course is the mancat you know today.
