Mr. Toes!

We have a new member of our household
Turn around and show the folks how handsome you are....
Meet Mr. Toes
He has 'adopted' us and we have become very fond of this funny guy.  We think he is a young cat and not at all feral.  Very friendly and sweet.
He started hanging around our yard and coming on our deck. He and Charlie would have conversations through the screen door.  Mr ALC offered him food and water as he looked pretty skinny.  He has continued to return daily and hang out.  
He has adorable white 'toes' and does air biscuits all the time. 
 So Mr. Toes he became!
He makes us laugh!  
Do you think the birds will notice I'm in their bird bath???
He is one relaxed dude!
We are planning a visit to the Vet very soon as he has not been neutered and I'm sure has had no shots!
Charlie watches him and they converse daily!
Charlie likes him as long as he stays on the other side of the door!

So welcome to our home
Mr Toes!

Hugs,
Linda

Mr. Toes is adorable!!! He's so lucky to have found you. After he gets fixed - he's going to be even more loving and docile!!! Nice kitty :-}}

What a handsome cat he is. He looks like he is quite the entertainer. So you plan to keep him, Linda? That would be so nice for him and I'm wondering about Mr. Charlie and his idea of the whole thing. Keep us posted. Love him already. Hugs, Deb

BECKY said...

Oh Linda! He is adorable and definitely has a real personality! It's so funny that your blog post title today is "Mr. Toes!" Mine is "My Weird, Ugly Toes." LOL

Mr. Toes is a handsome guy. What cute photos of both Mr. Toes and Charlie. ;-) He's a lucky cat!

It's All Connected said...

He looks very like my Sarah cat that came in as a stray and was my best friend for 12 years. Sometimes things find you for a reason. You and your husband are such good people to take care of him! ~ Maureen

Love the pics in the bird bath! Best of luck with Mr. Toes, he does seem like a character-enjoy:@)

Hi Linda,
Mr. Toes is adorable and I'm so glad that you are taking care of him and giving him a new home.
I'm sure Charlie will want to keep his distance for quite some time. Just look at that sweet Charlie looking through the glass. He knows he's number one.

hugs from Gizzy and Gabby.

An interesting thrifty find, Linda!

Susan said...

Linda, is Mr. Toes going to stay and outside cat? He is adorable!

Ann in the UP said...

Thanks for sharing Mr. Toes with the rest of us. He looks like he has a very winning personality, indeed! I love the bird bath shot.

Our Sweetie sits outdoors "Protecting our birds from predators", too. She doesn't stay long, so they just sit in the lilacs and squawk at her.

Catherine said...

What a sweetie!! I am thinking Mr. Toes knows a home full of love when he sees it so decided to come and live with you. Hooray!

De tout, de rien said...

What a handsome Tuxedo cat!! He is beautiful Linda. The pics in the bird bath are too funny and ironic, don't you think?

He's a keeper! Good for you for taking care of such a lovely stray.

Hartwood Roses said...

What a sweet looking boy!! Judging from the one photo, it looks like he will have a very fancy tail when his big-boy coat comes in.

Welcome to the family, Mr. Toes.

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Linda, it warms my heart so much when someone adopts a stray rather then chasing it away. They are out there by no fault of their own, and it's a extremely hard life to live.

Thank you from the bottom of my cat loving heart for taking in Mr. Toes.

May you both have a long and happy friendship.

It does seem that cats choose their owners and here is another perfect example! He is very sweet, and very lucky!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

OH he is so sweet...love how he curls up in the birdbath! Looks like he's found a forever home!

Susan said...

OMG, Linda. Mr. Toes would have gone right to my heart, too. What a DOLL! Oh, I love him. Take good care of him and you! THANKS FOR SHARING. Susan

Vonlipi said...

Linda you are such a softie!

I would've done the same...He is totally adorable and I'm so happy you opened your heart to this new furry friend.

I'm sure Charlie will be glad to have a new friend (eventualy)

Hugs

Elaine said...

He is a very handsome boy - and so sweet. I'm so glad he has found his way home!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Linda, those pictures of Mr. Toes in the bird bath are so cute! He's a beauty. Maybe if Mr. Toes and Charlie get used to each other through the door, they'll be ok being together. Glad you're going to get him vetted. laurie

bj said...

How cute he is...I've always wondered just what a feral cat is....a wild one?

Dianne said...

I love Mr Toes, He is a very handsome fellow in his tux and all. I wonder how long it will be before he finds his way behind the screen door and into your home? Dianne

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Oh, he's just the sweetest! What an adorable picture of him relaxing in the birdbath, he looks right at home.
