Well, Iki made it to his 1st birthday and is now officially one year old. Some early photos and info about Iki's plight can be found here.
He really is like a dog. He always runs to the door when were coming home or leaving, he lays around us in bed, always licking our face or hands or legs and loves to play endlessly.
His mother still roams around in the backyard and on occasion I would bring Iki out on the porch and they would see eachother. The mother would just stop in her tracks and look at him and I always wonder if somehow she knows that it was the one of her litter that she removed.
Ironically, the one she removed might be the only survivor from the bunch although I think one of the others might have been given a home.
