Turbo!

19 08 2010

My friend Carmen, whom I visited this weekend in South Carolina, rescued Turbo when she was visiting her brother in Dallas last October. Her brother’s friend saw someone toss the cat out of a car at a Bank of America parking lot. David, knowing Carmen never met a cat or dog she didn’t like, worked on her for just 30 minutes on the phone until she agreed to pick up Turbo en route from our wedding in Sequin. She said if he was a male, she would name him Turbo, because her late husband, George, wanted to name a previous cat Turbo and she wouldn’t let him! Turbo turns one year old at the end of this month and is a wild-eyed, crazy loving cat! When he was finally captured, he was hiding in the engine of a car. In this shot, Turbo has decided that the stack of expensive rugs that Carmen bought from Izmir, Turkey on her recent cruise was set up just for him.
