The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Meet Huckleberry

Mark was talking about posting a profile of Lucy, so I figured I'd better beat him to the punch and tell you a bit more about Huckleberry.  (Can you tell that Lucy is more Mark's dog and Huckleberry is more my cat?)

Age: about 2.5-3 years
Huckleberry the cat

History: picked up by me at the dump when I went to offload some garbage about a year ago.  (Mark never sent me to the dump alone again...)

Favorite activities: sleeping on the futon, eating, scratching things to pieces, meowing incessantly, lying on my chest while I read and pet him, running up and down on the roof early in the morning, tricking Lucy into chasing him across the garden so that she'll get yelled at

Cuteness quotient: 10

Usefulness quotient: 2 (He did catch two mice in his early days.)

At least now he can't complain that 80% of our "pets"-tagged posts are about Lucy! :-)
