Chester

Chester and Katie

Chester is the brother of Katie. Both came to RAPS as kittens, part of a large group of barn cats rescued in 2009.

I've featured Chester for some time as the blog's header kitty, but had meant to wait to write about him until I found another yet-to-be-featured cat to take his place in the header photo. I've found I like this photo too much to swap out, though, and so he'll just have to stay there for a while longer.

The first thing people generally notice about Chester is his adorable curly tail.


The rest of him is pretty cute too.


He's a very friendly boy, and will come out to greet visitors to the back pen where he lives. He always loves a little cuddle, and is often in the mood for a play as well.
