This young man has many names- most are unprintable on a family website such as this- but officially his name is Tam- Scottish shorthand for “Thomas.” My sister- who got him for me for Christmas in 2012- suggested the name because my first cat, Duncan, was named after my great grandfather and great-great grandfather, Duncan Livingston. Tam is named after Thomas McIlwraith, my great-grand uncle.
Any-way, as you can see he’s a handsome little so-and-so and he turns two today. In those two years he’s cost me hundreds of dollars in damages (stop buy the Apple store and see how much a MacBook Pro power cord costs…now multiply that by three…), I don’t think I’ve had a good night’s sleep since I got him, and I wouldn’t trade him for anything. He’s starting to mellow out just a tiny bit…I think.
