Fat Cat Basquiat

One of the earliest rescued kittens, Basquiat is named after that abstract painter because I was into that, in those days. Once upon a time, Basquiat was a tiny fuzzy black kitten, dying from exposure. We saved him.

I remember him growing up as a very sleek kitty who flew gracefully through the air as he leaped from one thing to another. Times have changed.

Some percentage of cats just get fat when they are fixed and Basquiat is one of those. He is huge and spends most of his time sleeping except for all that eating. And it's pretty clear now that he will probably be here the rest of his life. He would have been a good pet, though.
