This blog, like everything else in their minds, centers around the two black fur balls that depend on me to supply them with kibble money and shining things. Under the watchful eyes of Sir Rinaldo, the dainty feline prince of Aurora and Rembrandt, the disheveled but lovable house jester, I will be able to report the daily trials and tribulations of the never-ending quest for feline world domination, the perfect sunny napping spot and a warm lap.

As a male cat owner that happens to make his scratch in the veterinary profession, I hope to share why cats rule while throwing in some helpful tips I have learned from the amazing veterinarians I get to work with.

About Rinaldo

Since he was a 6-year-old black cat, Rinaldo had a hard time finding his forever home. Until we found and adopted him in May 2009, he spent over six months of his life at the Denver Dumb Friends League Buddy Center. Rinny, as we call him, is your stereotypical cat. He is slender, well-groomed, graceful and frightened by his own shadow. His favorite activities include sleeping, tummy rubs and more sleep.

About Rembrandt

The beginning of Rembrandt’s life is a reminder that we live amongst some sick and deranged individuals. His original owner, a veterinarian friend of mine, rescued him from a river in Alaska sometime in 2001. Someone had put him and his litter mates in a plastic bag so they could drown them. Unfortunately, his litter mates and mother did not survive. My vet friend raised him until she found herself without a home (landlord foreclosed on her rental property without telling them). While looking to find a new home, I agreed to watch Rembrandt in May 2009 (a week after we got Rinny). The boys quickly became best friends and we became attached to Brandt. When my friend’s husband was offered a job back in Alaska, we offered to keep Rembrandt until they were settled into the new place. My friend knowing that Rembrandt is a very bad travel and that he bonded well with Rinny, my wife and me, made the tough decision to let us adopt Brandt from her (we are forever grateful for her to make this hard decision and sacrifice).
