This is Hermie. He belongs to our friend Shawnwall in Pittsburgh. We went to visit them on the May two-four weekend (Canuck speak for the holiday of Queen Victoria's birthday, held every year around May 24th).

As you can see, Hermie's a beautiful boy. What makes him super special is that despite missing a back leg and suffering considerable brain damage from a car accident (pre-Shawnwall), Hermie can do what any cat can do, even better.

In short, he's a spaz. I almost brought him home in my suitcase. But Neiko would've had to defend his Freaky-boy title and I'm not sure I could witness tripod attempt to usurp ol' thumby's throne in a cage match. Who would I cheer for?

Besides, you can collect only so many grey cats before people think you're crazy.

Grey cats?? Since when did only grey cats count towards the crazy factor?

So, if you have 10 tabby's, that's sane. You got that definition from Jessica Rabbit - didn't you.

You can collect exactly 12 cats before people KNOW your crazy.

Plus 1 puppy.

He is beautiful and Im glad he has such a good life despite the missing leg and the accident. Good kitties are the best thing ever.

JR, I think people knew you were crazy long before #12.
