+1 to that! A few years back, Babie, my male cat who picked me, passed away from feline diabetes and late-onset feline asthma (both common in male cats). A short couple of months later, my then gf brought home a flier from the bank she was working at, that stated that they were looking for a good home for this particular male cat. I initially balked (I was still all broken up over losing Babie), but she convinced me to at least go and take a look at this cat. When I met this "new" cat, we immediately bonded. What was even more amazing was that it was very quickly apparent that this new cat possessed a LOT of Babie's personality traits. I was hooked ... and Buddie had a new home. Since then, I've discovered many more things that Buddie does that are so similar to Babie. To this day, Buddie and me are as close as Babie and me were.

That is a classic, Southpaw. And the cobweb Brooks pic is a winner too. Glad to see this thread has gone to the dogs, er...cats.

I have the same dog, but a different model year I think. They changed the ears and paint scheme in 2004.

Agree.

You should have posted that shot of the Brooks with cobwebs in back ground separately.
It's a wonderful picture in it's own right but with the pic of the little ones riding their bikes
it just fades into the background.
