New cat on the block

Meet Leonardo, Leo for short. Who's now called Robbie, after going through a number of names that refused to stick. This picture was taken the day he arrived, as a six-week old kitten.

When we first took him in, our intention was to find a good home for him: we have two grown cats of our own, after all! We made handful of attempts to offer him to suitable homes, none of which worked out. After a couple of weeks we had to face up to the fact that we'd grown so used to having him around that we weren't keen to see him go. So it was off to the vet with him to get his first round of shots and we officially conceded that we were now a three cat household.
