We don't know Toffee's birthday, but he's around the same age as Harris, so we're giving him August 10, too. I don't think they'll mind sharing presents and cakes as the years go by.
For Harris, we are lucky to have loads of baby pictures, courtesy of his mom, Donna:
Harris's mom, Winnie, as a pregnant stray. Harris has her eyes and coloring.
Newborn Harris, looking more like a hamster than a cat.
Eyes opened. Look at those tiny ears.
At 6 weeks, Harris already has lots of personality.
At 8 weeks, Harris already knows how to pose.
And so we are the beneficiaries of quite a number of cat-loving rescuers across Massachusetts and Connecticut — some are strangers and some have become friends. We're grateful to all of them!
