Boo is the alpha cat of the eight we have. With people, he's the most laid back except maybe for Jack, but he won't hesitate to let the other cats know that he's the boss. Boo is one of a litter of kittens we rescued just down the road from our house three years ago. Someone had dumped a whole barnful of cats and five of them were very tiny kittens.
Two days after we scooped them up, gave them baths, fed them and provided them with a warm place to sleep, the field where we found them was plowed. As scared as those kittens were, hiding in the weeds, I have no doubt they would have unknowingly been killed by that tractor and the farmer driving it.
We have three of those original five kittens still living with us - Boo, Luna, and Baby - while Kara and Adam have Oreo. One of my co-workers and her family has Augie, whom they renamed Cow. Guess what colors Cow is? :-)
