Awesome cats everyone! I was reluctant to post in this thread but my girlfriend finally talked me into it. So I would like to share with you my girlfriend's cat, Coates, actually Corporal Coates. My girlfriend rescued Coates when he was only a few weeks old because his mother and siblings were killed by coyotes. When she found him he was on the verge of death but was able to nurse him back to health. We are happy to say Coates is now about 18 months old and is in the best shape of his life. He thinks he owns the world (like most cats) and can get away with just about anything but we still love him.
He was named after Major Coats from the video games Mass Effect 3. When it was announced that his name would be Major Coates (she changed the spelling), I told her that Coates is fine but he would have to start off as a Private like the rest of us.
He is slowly moving up the ranks which typically involves a birthday and or a visit to the vet. Hopefully someday he can live up to the name Major Coates.
Thanks for reading,
