Future Cat joined our family in September 2003. I found him -- filthy, tiny and meowing -- the day after Hurricane Isabel in a parking lot in Norfolk, Virginia. He came into our home under the pretense that I would find a suitable owner for him. When no such owner was found (or ever sincerely sought), he was named Future Cat and officially joined the clan. He lived at the Buckleypod, and then Pod Deux, for 6 years before moving to South Carolina with my brother, WPBJ, in the Summer of 2009. He enjoys the company of Boy Cat and Lola, but he prefers to be an only cat, as there is less chance that the cat food will run out that way. His humans recently adopted a little puppy brother for him, Rigel, which seems acceptable to Future Cat as long as Rigel stays away from the cat chow.
