I would like you all to meet Vader:
Vader's petfinder webpage has the following description:
"Vader is a shiny, all black cat who just came in to rescue when his family separated and had to move. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle but is also playful and loves to chase things that move. He is about a year old."
He sounds like everything I was looking for in a cat. He is young, black and affectionate. And the fact that I am a raging Star Wars fanatic made it seem like he was meant for me. I am of course hoping that he is a total cuddle slut that loves to sit in my lap when I work and sleep in my bed with me.
