Rumbling Rio!


Daddy has a friend, T, who loves Cats.  We like it when he comes over, because he's always good for a nice scratch behind the ears...he doesn't even mind Grayce and her Biting Ways!

T has a doggy and we're used to smelling Sampson on him.  But one day last week T came over and he had an entirely different odor on him...

It was that NEW KITTEN SMELL!!!

We immediately sent Mommy and Daddy over to investigate.
They found this lil' guy...

...who was kind of shy at first.
Mommy hauled him out from behind the table to gave him pets and kisses and he relaxed right away.
His name is Rio!

Rio:  Hi Everybody!
I'm just tidying up here.
Gotta keep my Flame Points Spotless!

Um, I am not doing what you think.
The Visiting Lady Who Squishes and Kisses me put some NIP down for me!

mmmmmmmm, I LIKE catnip. 
As much as like tummy rubs.
They make me purr like a motorboat.

I'm a four-month old wild and crazy guy! 
The Visiting Man Who Eats Kitten Ears gave me this toy.

oooooooh, and this one too! 
decisions, decisions.

Look at my mighty claws as I kill this ball!
I have HUGE paws, I'm gonna be a Big Boy.

Sampson:  Whatcha doin, Rio? 

Rio:  Hisssssssssss! 
Actually, me and Sampson get along pretty good.  I like to follow him around and see what he's doing.

I really like the younger human here, too. 
See how he holds the scratchy post for me?
I sleep with him at night and make squillions of biscuits on his pillow.

Yup, I like my new home and my new family.
I'll have them whipped into shape in no time! 
Luv, Rio

So kitties, that's who we smelled on T, and when Mommy and Daddy got home we sniffed them, too.  We'll get some more photos as Rio gets older.  He's gonna be a Handsome ManCat!


  1. That must have been quite a shock! New kitten smell! Rio is a very handsum boy. Keep us posted. Purrs.

  2. Well isn't he a gorgeous boy? Very handsome!

  3. Rio is adorable! He is going to be a gorgeous Mancat! Samson is a cutie too!

  4. Rio is a very pretty kitty. In fact the publicist now wants a white kitty. The male person is mumbling things that cannot be repeated on a family blog.

  5. He is so cute!! Big blue eyes! Giant paws! FLOOF!


  6. Rio is already a very handsome young guy! He should have his own blog!!!

  7. Rio you are adorable. We think you have made yourself right at home. Enjoy your loving family and it is nice to meet to you. Hugs and nose kisses

  8. Nothin beats that new kitty smell, and oh my Rio! Our Mumsy sure likes you! We alls think you bees just real handsome. Our Odysseus, she just in love with you! She keep sayin to oh dis look at doze flaming points you gots! Our Sneak Pie, with him's biggie paws, admires yours :-) We do bees soooo happy you gots a good happy home.

  9. I think Rio is going to be very very handsome.

  10. That Rio is a good-looking little gent! (PS: Is Lounge Daddy the one that eats kitten ears?...No wonder Scouty is scared!)

  11. Well, I see that the visitor Lady with the grabby hands was pretty busy with you, Rio. It's good you were nice to her because I think it's good for her to get her kitten fixes from kittens that already have a good home somewhere else, MOL!

  12. Oh wow, he's furry, does dis mean dat T won't be coming over to get a kitty fix and yoo'll hafta suffer thru fewer pets?

  13. Äiti is threatening to go through her old music collection and play 'My name is Rio' at full volume cause she is so happy at seeing this gorgeous white kitty. He is one handsome dude and we were hoping he could be persuaded to do a blog. And we know what you mean about the new kitten smell - only I am not so sure I like it right now!

  14. Rio is sure a handsome guy. We will enjoy more news of him as he grows up.

  15. Oohhh, the mom just swooned! Rio, you are one gorgeous young mancat!

  16. P.S. We love Sampson's "grin!" That's a sh*t eating grin...Wait, since he's a woofie, that could be taken literally. LOL. Sorry...It's WAY early and the mom is WAY too tired to be commenting. :-P

  17. Ah, Rio is so handsome! I agree with Fuzzy Tales, too: Sampson's little grin cracked me up.

  18. Oooh! A very handsome litlle soon-to-be-bigger guy.

    Hi Rio :)))

  19. Rio seems cute but I hope he does not grow up to be a terror like Teddy!

  20. I want to dine on kitty ears. Anybody know how to do that, without hurting the cats or the self? Apply within.

  21. My mom goes = Awww soo cute , I wanna kiss his belly !!!
    Yeah I know my mom is a bit embarrasing :)
    Me too think he is a cute little guy and brave too ,that lives with a doggie !!!
    Is Rio a Red tabby Birman ?
    I´m a Cream Point Birman but I don´t act like one say´s mom. I moore act like an rascal :)
