This is our cat, Harry. He isn't a purebred, but we love
him a lot. He's strictly an indoor cat.
We got Harry about 14 years ago, to keep another cat
(George ye Curious, who died in 1999) company when we went to SCA
events. (George had made it clear that he did NOT like camping
After living most of his life with George, and being "number
two cat" to George all that time, Harry isn't too sure what to do
now that he is "top cat". He's getting along well with our newest
cat, Bean. But he's been making sure that Bean knows Harry is "Top
Harry came from a litter that Jay's sister's cat had. His name
comes from the resemblance to the Magician, Harry Blackstone
Junior. With his white paws and vest, he looks like he is in
formal attire. His black chin, unusual on a black and white cat,
looked like a goatee beard. Since Jay is also a stage magician,
the name seemed appropriate.
Harry is a neutered tom. He gets along well with our daughter,
Victoria. When Victoria was a small baby, Harry even took naps
with her. He even gets along rather well with our dog, Crusader,
sharing their water dish and sleeping in the same room together.
Harry is not to the point of curling up with the dog for a nap,
but he will walk right over Crusader's front paws, or right next
to him to pass the dog.
