We adopted Stache in mid-March 2011 as our house and hearts were lonely after the death of our 15 year old Russian Blue. When my husband first picked him up out of the cage he was purring and "head butting" right away so I knew he was the one for our family. With a name like "Stache" who could resist him? He is an active "blitzer" in the mornings and when we get home, loves his window sill perches and has left his mark on our leather couch but he has filled out in his size nicely and his fur is super soft to touch. We've had him for 5 months now but he was a lap cat within the first 3 hours of being with us. Thank you Furry Shelter for our boy!
