On Eddy’s birthday post, I was asked if I had any kitten pictures of Eddy. Most of my pre-iPhoto/Aperture photos are less-than-well-organized, but I did find two, from the very first weekend he was living with us.
In fact, this photo was taken within an hour of his coming into our house–you can see I still have my bike shorts under regular shorts. It was a long drive to the ride, and I liked looking “normal” if I had to stop along the way. You might think that it was a wise call, given that I stopped at the vet to have him checked out on the way home, except that our vet is also a cyclist (I remember passing a bike on the way to the exam room). We actually talked a bit about the ride itself (meh–Eddy was easily the best part of it).
Later that weekend, for a post in my old Phlog blog, I took a picture of him on the saddle of my bike.
He was a cute kitten, and grew into a handsome cat. We’re glad to have him as part of the family.
