Tagged by Huffle

Huffle tagged us to play photo tag. We're supposed to post the fifth picture from the fifth folder. We used Mom's flickr account and this is what we found.
This is our Aunt Kari. That's Wilbur on her shoulder. This picture was taken in April 2005, just a couple weeks after Mom found Wilbur at the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. Wilbur had taken his first plane ride to fly with Mom to Missouri to help Aunt Kari plan our wedding. Our Missouri grandparents don't like animals in the house, so Mom had to promise that Wilbur would stay in the basement. Wilbur worked his magic though and before you know it, he was running all over the house. He made several trips to Missouri after that and even stayed there for two weeks while Mom was on a business trip (that's in the pre-Dad days when Mom didn't want to leave Wilbur home alone). Can you believe that our Missouri grandparents, who don't like animals in the house, actually drove to Texas to pick Wilbur up and take him home with them? Obviously Wilbur's cute face did it.

Too bad he grew up!

Wilbur had, and has, the charm. He is a manly feline. Quite the handsome and irresistable to the peeps. He probably requires a lot less maintenance and bother than some canines we know in the great pacific northwest.

Wow! Wilbur used to be smaller than I am! He was really cute. I wonder if we would get along with each other. I've only been around the cat at the golf course and he wants to kill me.

Wilbur is such a cutie pie. He can make everyone's heart melt with his handsome look.

Edgar says that Wilbur is one happening dude and don't you furballs forget it.

Wilbur my friend, you look very handsome and totally cute in that photo. Of course your charms worked on your Missouri grandparents - how could they not be convinced of your cuteness?

that's a pretty cute photo. Wilbur is a smart little kitty to get away with breaking the rules.

Wow! Wilbur was one adorable kitten--and brave, too! Ari's housemates would NEVER consent to a plane ride.
