Friends, I would like to introduce you to Rusty (the cat formerly known as Garden Cat 1).
There were some great suggestions, and in the end it was a tough decision between 'Chuck' and 'Rusty.' I tested out each name and ultimately decided that Rusty best captured his character. Doesn't he look proud to finally have a name after years of anonymity? I didn't realize until taking this photo, however, that the poor guy lost an eye somewhere along the way. So I guess now he's visually challenged. But he doesn't appear to be letting that impact his self esteem.
Now that Rusty has a name, the other two Garden Cats are jealous. The one closest to Rusty has been giving him the stinkeye, and snide remarks have been tossed back and forth. So it looks like I'm going to have to bestow names on the others. Can anyone help me out with a suggestion for Garden Cat 2?
