The newest member of the McClure family. Baxter is an 11 month old Russian Blue mix that we adopted from Town Lake Animal Shelter. We went to the shelter to "look at titty tats" as Quinn says and left with Baxter only 45 minutes later. He is so sweet and social and even allows Quinn to carry him around, purring all the way. He is very curious about Wesley and approaches her and lets her pet him. After only two hours in the house he joined Mike and Quinn on the sofa, where he curled up in Mike's lap. Although he has not officially met Pollock and Boone he did catch a glimpse of them downstairs and seemed unfazed. We're pretty optimistic that there shouldn't be too many fights between them in our future.
Some of you might know that Mike is allergic to cats. Russian Blues typically shed less and are good for people with cat allergies. But, Baxter's such a sweetie that Mike has said he'll visit an allergist if his act up because Baxter is here to stay!
