This is Costello.   He found us at Petco, when my daughter and I came in to buy food for the other four footed family members of the Deveau household.   We always said hello to the cats in the shelter display, but this one was special.  As soon as we started talking to him, he came over to have his ears scratched and started to purr.  We knew he was meant to come home with us.  And so he did, joining the menagerie of three other cats, two dogs, and a hamster.  He had come in to the shelter as a stray, and it took a long time to gain his trust.  This picture makes him look rather fierce, but that's just part of his act.   He still doesn't like to be picked up, but has become the family lap cat - as long as its his choice.  If there's an empty chair at the table, he'll keep us company (very politely) during meals.  He's definitely 'a keeper'.  Thanks GA Humane Society for helping Costello find a forever home.
