Yes, yes I am. My daughter really wanted a cat. There was a litter born in our neighborhood to a female that was supposed to be spayed. He took up residence in another neighbor's garage, and so we "adopted" him from that neighbor. Original owner was fine with it as they were trying to get rid of them anyway. He is sort of a rescue, except he never was actually in a shelter.

He is really sweet and cute, purrs at the drop of a hat, and will "knead biscuits" with his paws. He gets along well with our dog, but he can be ornery.

ETA: He hasn't swatted or appeared agitated so much as rough playfulness. He is playing, but it hurts!
