Alex is my beloved short-haired brown tabby. I first met him about 11 years ago when a guy I worked with brought him to my office, saying he found him hanging out in the grass outside the building. He was sooo tiny and couldn't have been more than a month old. As he sat in my lap staring up at me with very cute big eyes, I noticed that he had a burn on his nose, a scratch on his ear, and other signs of abuse.

I wasn't looking for a new cat, but Alex got attached to me quickly and I didn't know anyone else who wanted to take him in. I already had an amazing, loving, beautiful black cat named Supercat. He just passed away a few months ago and it's still difficult for me to write about him. So, I'll simply say that I love and miss him very much.

Alex can be pretty unpredictable at times. He can go from super sweet to super mean in a matter of seconds, but he's mellowed out a lot over the last few years. He's really sweet most of the time. When he's not napping in a favorite spot or lounging on me, Alex enjoys playing like a kitten, biting, scratching, me-yowling, and chasing me around the house, trying to bite my ankles and legs.
