Lincoln’s story is much more traditional. After we had Reagan for about a week, we decided that she needed a companion. We visited the farm of one of my friend’s in-laws and we were introduced to Lincoln.
I’ll be honest – I wasn’t too keen on bringing him home. He was a lot bigger than Reagan at the time and he has long hair. As much as I love cats, I hate cat hair, and the thought of a long haired cat taking up residence in my home wasn’t something I was thrilled about. Mike overruled and we brought Lincoln home that Saturday afternoon to meet his sister.
Lincoln has a very loving personality and always wants to be held and petted. He is very cuddly and is typically dubbed the most beautiful of the our brood by visitors.
Growing up on a farm, Lincoln will eat anything. And I do mean anything. He loves veggies. Especially corn on the cob. We can not leave raw corn ears on the counter – Lincoln will eat them. I think he must have visited a few corn fields in his early days.
I thought that Lincoln would be the best cat with Bo, but I’ve actually been surprised to find that Maddie has more of a maternal instinct and sticks close to Bo whenever possible. Lincoln tolerates Bo, as all of the cats do, but Maddie is definitely Bo’s sidekick.
