Pet of the Week - Othello!
Age: 1 year
Before my boyfriend and I were together, we were best friends. I knew he wanted a cat, so I convinced him he needed to get a kitten. I'm actually the one who went and picked out the kitten, and my only requirement was that he was a boy. When Jose came home from work we decided his name was Othello. I ended up spending a lot more time over at his place playing with and taking care of Othello, and we joke that he is the reason we're together now.
A few months later when we were together, we decided Othello needed a brother or sister. That's when we got Augustus. Othello wasn't too keen on him at first, but now they're best friends. Othello even saved his life, because back in March Augustus fell off the third floor balcony and broke his leg, and Othello started making a lot of weird noises until I came to see what was wrong. Now he's Cupid and a hero.
When he's not match-making or saving lives, Othello enjoys crawling into small boxes and bags, chewing up my art projects, and fighting for the top tier of the cat tower with his brother.
