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.
