New guy?

 

Missy looking at new kitty

Wait a minute!  WHO is that? and WHO invited him here???  Not me!  Life is going just fine, thankyouverymuch.  I’m Princess.  I rule!  He stinks.  Period.  Go away!

Well, come down and meet him, my dear.  Here is your new brother.  He does NOT stink at all.  No, he is quite the lover boy.  You’ll like him.

Meet, um, well, with his former parents this guy was named Shadow.  Very appropriate name, I am finding out, because that is what he IS.  My shadow…he follows me everywhere, jumps into my lap—that part is nice!…but we already have a granddog by that name, so I am trying out Casey to see how that moniker wears.  Dick and I both need to get to know him, as does Miss Missy, so we’ll see if he is a Casey kitty or not.  Smokey?  No, I don’t like that…too common.  Shannon?  Too girly.  Hmm…

There were equal hiss greetings when these two finally did get a little closer to each other yesterday, but I suppose they were just establishing some ground rules for co-habitation.  They were both quiet as they claimed turf in bed with the two of us during the night, so that is a good beginning.  I think.

Some friends of ours are having health issues and need to actually find homes for 4 kitties.  Joy (who is allergic to cats) has spent a lot of time around all the kitties, and had recommended this particular guy as the ‘pick’ of the litter.  She is right.  He is a sweetie, and Joy will still get to see him, here at our house.  We think  Missy will get the new guy trained to her way of liking, after all, he is only a little over a year old, so he still needs a little guidance from an older female!  She just turned 5, so she has lots of wisdom to share.

Missy rules!

At first I thought you meant a new handy man around the house... The new kitty is adorable! We can't wait to get to meet him!

Glad to hear that they didn't go at each other while you and Dick were trying to get some sleep last night! Here's to hoping that they're good friends once they get used to each other!

I rather like Bee's suggestion. I can hear it now "I told you to get down from there, Mister!" "Excuse me, Mister, but we don't scratch up the furniture around here!" "Pardon me, Mister, but that's Missy's spot!" ... I think it works!

Casey is a good name. Mister is funny. Good suggestion, Bee! Whatever you call him, he's a love, and I'm glad he and Missy were able to coexist last night. :-)

I like the name Casey. To date, there hasn't been any Casey's around my household and we've had many four legged creatures around (no cats though).

*thud*

He looks so much like my original gray guy, Gandalf. Gorgeous!

I kind of like Miss Bee's suggestion, too! But I end up calling all of mine kitty kitty, sugah boogah, baby doll, honey pie, baby boy, baby girl... in other words, any and all names are fine because they just don't matter! I seldom use their names and if food isn't involved they won't come anyway! hahahaha!

Welcome to Paradise, kitty kitty!

Big hugs xoxo

Looks Egyptian to me. How about Pharoah(sp?)?
