This is Ichabod. I named him Ichabod because we "acquired" him fifteen years ago on Halloween. He was just a tiny black ball of frightened fur who was dumped off in front of our home and immediately sought refuge under our porch. For a couple of days I tried coaxing him out by using food. Eventually he ventured out from his hiding place and darted off towards our then-neighbors, the Cranes, next door. There were four of us trying to catch him as he whizzed around and around the Cranes' house. Marla Crane said their cat would never tolerate another one, even if they could name him Ichabod Crane. So even though we already had two cats, I took him in. I love black cats and I simply couldn't resist this one. I took this picture years ago; it's the same porch which used to be his hiding place, and that's the Cranes' house in the background.
Mr. Right is having some Halloween fun today.
