Toby or not Toby: that is the question!

Today we picked up the latest member of our household - a brown tabby to keep Misty company (not that they've been introduced yet). His name was Rooney, but we can't think of that without thinking of the footballer and not being football fans we were confident that the name had to go.

After much deliberation over the last week we decided that we liked the name Toby, but unfortunately on picking him up and having a good look at him we've decided he simply doesn't look or act like a Toby. Since we happened to know a similar cat called Roland and we were watching the women's singles tennis final at Roland Garros at the time we were thinking about it we came up with the name Roland instead.

So here he is:

Unfortunately he has a habit of curling up one half of his upper lip - probably because he just had three teeth out, which makes him look rather vicious, but I still managed to get lots of photos of him with a less ridiculous expression

or not!


  1. Awww so cute... :) Does he like to watch tennis? Did you consider calling him Nadal? ;)

  2. Welcome to Roland! Lucky kitty to get such a good home. xoxo

  3. Welcome new puss, whatever you end up being called. Please be nice to my Misty when you do meet! (and vice versa)

  4. I'm sure if I was a cat I'd be dreaming of coming to live with people like you!
