Finnegan



Here is Finnegan with his favorite nip toy. Finnegan was adopted from a shelter when he was about a year old. He got his name from a saying of his Great-grandma's.  She used to say,"In again, Finnegan?" or "Out again, Finnegan?" every time she opened the door to let a cat in or out of the house.  His Mom always thought it would be great to have a cat named Finnegan.  He is a fun-loving kitty who loves his brother Buddy, his nip, catgrass and his grandparents. His Mom changed her job a while back and now they are waiting until they can sell their house so they can either buy a condo or rent an apartment in Durham. At present, Finnegan is living with Mom's parents and Mom and Buddy are living with Aunt Ree. They are all hoping that the house sells soon, so they can all be together again. The present situation isn't too bad because Finnegan really loves his Grandpa and Grandma. He helps Grandpa in his workshop and loves to "splat" on Grandma's shoulder for loving.

                                         Tell me how Finnegan got his name again?
                                         "In again, Finnegan?"  "Out again, Finnegan?"
                                                           Great-grandma used to say
                                                           As the cats got their way,
                                         Trooping in and out of the house.  Hey, Finnegan!

That's a quite funny name to call all cats "Finnegan", lol ! Usually people they "Kitty" or "Poussi" or something like that !
It's getting a little better with Rosie and the others !

That's a great limerick! In again, out again. Cats do that. Yup.

Maw said to tell you that the vacuum was from a lite vacuum of 2 rooms. If she does a heavy vacuum of the whole house, she empties the canister 5 times. We have LOTS of hair here at the Forty Paws. And some of us even get brushed!!! Maw spends a lot of time cleaning....
