I Am. The purrfect cat.

This is my cat companion and best friend, Millhouse. He is a Norwegian Forest mix breed and was adopted 3 years ago at age 8 from an animal rescue organization after his owner died. Supposedly, there was a sibling but the owner's daughter kept that one. We think his name might have been Bart (after the Simpsons). I've been taking daily photos since he's been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Although medication is helping control his symptoms, the prognosis with this condition isn't great. I am grateful for every day he is with me. He is one of a kind.
