On May 15, 2009, we adopted Smokey Bear, a 1-month-old kitten from the animal shelter. He has grown into a handsome, loving, intelligent cat. He is very playful and likes to be the center of attention. We call him our watch cat because he is very observant - nothing crosses his path without him checking it out. He stole our hearts the first day we saw him at the animal shelter, and he is a very special part of our family.
