|The Punky Boy soon after he joined our family.|
Finally, we have our sweet orange tabby boy, Pumpkin. Pumpkin, who I am sure is the brother to Lovie, is the easiest-going, most loving cat I've had in quite a while.
|Pumpkin has a close bond with his sister, Lovie.|
Or does he have me? Such is the relationship with a feline.
|Pumpkin knows that if he waits long enough, his humans will turn on the faucet for him.|
Pumpkin is exquisitely smart just like his sister, and has become a most handsome fellow to boot. The good news is both Lovie and Pumpkin have grown into their once-outsized ears. He can open doors by himself to let himself (and partners in crime) outside.
|Pumpkin opens the door so that he, Hamlet, and Lovie can join Romeo on the back porch.|
He never misses a meal, or a treat, or a chance to be brushed. He is sweet and kind to all the other animals and I have never seen him get rough with any of his friends.

Always gentle, our Plumpkin (no, that's not a typo; he's round like a pumpkin) is a charming little man. Also known as Pumpkin Pie, Punkin, Punky Boy, Angel Boy, and PumpkinMeister, he adores attention.
|Pumpkin enjoys playing in mommy's sunflower display.|
If you so much just look at him, he will begin purring and reach his paw out to touch you on the arm, just to let you know he loves you.
Pumpkin loves to go outside to watch the birds and dragonflies fly around. He doesn't bother them too much, as he is a lover, not a fighter.
|Pumpkin loves his sister, Lovie.|
Once in a great while, though, he will bring mommy a "present", so proud of himself presenting his quarry. I could almost swear he smiles as he knows he makes his humans happy, offerings or no offerings. He asks for nothing in return except a nice brushing or a scratch behind the ears. Even an occasional treat is not taken for granted by Pumpkin.
|Waiting patiently for Santa.|
After all, he does have a figure to maintain!
