Brittany says: I met Nimbus on March 26, 2009, a few hours after he made his debut in the world. He was born to the neighborhood cat Patches whom I cared for before and after she had her litter of seven kittens. All of them were wonderfully sweet and I loved them very much but couldn’t take one for myself due to already having many other animals. Everything changed the more I got to know little OK as I called him, short for Orange Kitty. Once all his brothers and sisters were gone I was left with this little orange kitten I just couldn’t give up. Obviously I ended up keeping him and giving him his official name of Nimbus.

A few of Nim’s favorite things are sleeping in the sunshine, eating, sleeping some more only in weird positions, trying to sneak people food, loving his people, watching birds, sleeping near the fan on my laptop, playing with paper bags, and hanging out with his friends -- fellow kitty PC, dog Nila and guinea pig Ringo. He loves dog food and birthday cake ice cream no matter how much I scold him for sneaking it. He has an entire basket full of toys but he refuses to play with any except the little furry mice. Those are his favorite! He also enjoys being the focus of my photography. He’s one of my favorite subjects to photograph in the entire world.

It’s fun to think about all the ways Nimbus has grown. He’s the craziest, hungriest, loudest purring, most orange, most skittish, most playful cattiest cat I’ve ever owned in my entire life. Sometimes I question what I was thinking when I decided to keep him when he goes on with his crazy shenanigans like sneaking butter from a tub and jumping at my legs every time I pass by the couch. It’s moments like when I walk through the door and he’s standing there waiting on me that I know why. He is full of love and energy and makes everyone that meets him laugh. He brings chaos as well as joy into my life with everything he does.

Look what I received for Christmas. ;) Orange has become my favorite color in kitty cats... "Orange Delight!" Smooches and belly rubs for Nimbus.

I love that his birth date is on your blog. He is 8 glorious years old not. I have an orange (the love of my life) and he will be 16 in 2 months. Numbus is a real beauty and I love this picture...I think I picked the same one before.
