This user-submitted post comes from Ryan. I absolutely love the name he gave his cat, Icarus, and his reasoning behind it. I can relate because my cats used to be fetchers and climbers in their younger years!
Icarus was adopted a few months ago from a PetsMart in Sacramento. He is so named because the first thing he did upon being let out of his box was attempt to climb onto the stove, ascending to a dangerous height like his Greek namesake.
He plays fetch and is fond of dropping his toy on my face several times a day.
I like this picture because even though (or because) it’s blurry, I look happy, and I am wearing my best shirt.
