A Life Without Gizmo Would Suck Too

I will admit that this post has very little to do with my horse or any facet of horsemanship really, but a lot to do with one of my other favorite furry beasties, a cat named Gizmo who's nickname is Silver Paws.
I came across Gizmo aka silver paws when he was 6 weeks old and fell in love! At the time I couldn't take him because I was on my scooter and didn't feel safe about stuffing him in my back basket! The lady who had him assured me that she could keep him till the following Monday if I could take him then and I did!!!
This little cat has loads and loads of personality and is a total sweetheart on top of it. He's a mighty grasshopper stalker (yum, extra protein) and snatches an occasional bird (which I'm not thrilled about, but what can you do) But one of his favorite things to stalk are the turkey slices I occasionally give him, loves that turkey!
We live in the perfect location for the cats up a dead end gravel road with only 4 houses on it so the cats can stay out all day if they want although we always bring them in at night (we have coyotes and coons in the area). Giz loves to romp around the yard with his sisters and brothers ( 7 cats total......yikes!) He's also great at posing as you might have noticed. He's doing his best Lily impression in that saddle picture, the worlds first Team Penning cat perhaps? Perfect in every way that's my Giz!

It's funny, when he went to the vet for "that operation" (ouch) they wrote down his color being blue. OK fine, whatever (he's grey, come on!) But my parents like to call him Blue Bottom (lol) so I guess he's blue! Is that a cat color thing or what?
