Birthday Boy!

And, of course, I couldn't forget Minstrel!






Taking photos of Minstrel can be a challenge, what with him being a black and white cat! So we don't have as many good ones of him as we do for Flossie. His eyes are the most vivid green which this doesn't really capture unfortunately.

Had we realised that he was a boy when we first had him, we would have called him Sylvester as he looks just like him! He has the Tuxedo colouring with white down his front and the white paws and if he sits looking at you, the long-haired fluffyiness around his mouth makes him look just like Sylvester. Truely a handsome chap!

Thank you RosyTint.
When he was a kitten, he was more of a chocolate colour than black. I guess we were thinking of the chocolate sweet called Minstrels! Although I had also heard the name used for another cat on a forum for cat lovers many moons ago so that may have influenced me. We think the name suits him now.
He's become blacker as he's got older, I might add.
