While considering my options I encountered the perfect cat for Spanky through the amazing Human Society of Silicon Valley website - http://hssv.org/
He is 10 months old and was described as loving people and other cats, Super friendly, outgoing, chatters and purrs a ton and LOVES pets.
Now if you know Spanky that pretty much describes him as well so...off I ran to the Human Society to check this kitty out.
Well I went in and he was even MORE friendly that I could have expected and gentle and lovey at the same time. So he came home that night.
Now he is happily hanging out in my bathroom until the 5 day waiting period is over and he and spanky can become BFF'S foreva. (I thought it was 10 days mandatory but turns out it can be 5 days-2 weeks)
I haven't had a long hair cat in a while so I had to stock up on some grooming supplies to keep him nice and fluffy.
The greatest thing about not getting a tiny kitten is that my 10 month old doesn't need any shots for a year and is old enough that he knows all the basic kitty stuff and isn't fragile.
Originally named Icicle he has now been christened Bozley AKA Boz AKA Sugar Boz.
This cat is sooo sweet and fluffy he was briefly named sugarfoot so on occasion I still call him Shug.
And now for a few picks:
Here is Boz telling me that he would like a belly rub
Now Boz would like me to put the camera down and deliver a cheek rub
And finally Boz making his request more clear by stroking my cheek and the camera. He is crazy sweet.
Once Boz and Spanky meet I'll post a little video.
It is impossible to capture how fluffy he is on camera.

To help him transition I have been letting him sleep with me.
Which is fine and dandy at night when I first fall asleep.
He sleeps like an angel at the bottom of the bed but come 2 or 5am and what you see in the video below happens exactly as shown.
Minus the baseball bat and dirty apt., cause mine is nice and clean.
Which is always followed by me stumbling, half asleep to the crunchy cupboard to silence my little ray of sunshine. Then stumbling back to bed.
I wasn't planning on getting a new cat for a long while but loss of sleep has made me very open to the idea if the right kitty crosses my path.
PS - Ignore the lame commercial

Sadly my sweet cat Wolfie had to be put to sleep tonight due to complications with a Urinary Tract Blockage.
He was a brave sweet boy to the very end and I miss him very much.
It's hard to believe I've lost another one so young, not even 2 this time.
Wolfie in your short little life you taught me many lessons most importantly that love and persistence makes all the difference.
I will miss your silky soft fur, love of faucets and water, jaunty jumps, sweet squeaky mews, quiet gentle purrs, excitement about everything and the way you would perk up when I called your name and snuggle close when lap napping.
I hope you know I did my best for you in every way possible.
I am grateful for every minute we shared. Even the challenging ones that taught me patience.
Thanks for spending your time here with me.
I miss you little friend.
