I got him - my Siamese cat!
I got him tonight. I saw him on PetFinder when I was out of town on a business trip last week but they held him until I could get there to check him out. He was at a shelter about 90 miles from where I live so I left work early today to go there. He melted my heart immediately when I picked him up and he started snuggling. That was all she wrote. I think he's probably a Siamese/Tabby mix because he has a bit of that look to his face and a very faint stripe about this tail. He was a very good car rider (important because we take our cats to our weekend lake place). He's in quarantine in our lower level bathroom until he passes inspection with our vet - though he is feline leukemia/aids negative, shots, etc. He is a lover boy which is another important factor. Here are a couple pictures - taken with my phone so not the greatest. Two vanity shots and one snuggle shot.
