         The cat you see in the picture at the top of this blog is Teddy. Don't be fooled by the name. He's only cuddly to one person - my wife; and only when we're in bed. He's a beautiful looking cat with a coat of fur much like polished wood. He has a white undercoat that is truly amazing. He's a very muscular cat with a good running speed and jumping abilities. You would think that he would be the dominant cat among our 4 felines, but Ted bows out to them all - even our 18 year old arthritic long haired bi-colour cat, Simon. I think cats can feel inferior to other cats much like people do with other people. He was a stray when he adopted us 4 years ago. We brought him in before the Maritimes winter hit and he has never strayed since. I will never know what kind of life he had before we rescued him, or even if that has anything to do with his inferiority, but Teddy seems to be contented with his home otherwise, and we love him so much.
